My Virginia equine photographer sessions continue with Alexa and Rosco. I was so honored when Alexa asked me if I could squeeze in a 30-minute session before another shoot at the same farm, so of course, I made room in my busy schedule to capture the bond this pair has. She has been riding Rosco for as long as I can remember and these two definitely have a special relationship. I mean, who doesn’t have a soft spot for a big gray with the softest, sweetest eyes, a little snip and a puppy dog personality?
Rosco has learned all of his dressage training from Alexa and they are so much fun to watch! Alexa has such a good seat and Rosco responds so beautifully to her cues. Although Rosco wasn’t raised in the dressage world, he quickly picked it up and they placed well at the dressage shows. He has the large swoopy trot and lovely canter that everyone loves.
Thankfully we had a perfect evening for pictures with gorgeous light at the farm in southern Chesapeake, VA. And of course, we added in some black background portraits because they are so much fun and had great variety to every equestrian session gallery. Scroll to the end to see those.
Alexa & Rosco have done everything from dressage to foxhunting and trail riding to riding with Greg Best. Rosco is one of those horses that can pretty much do it all and aims to please. He is very loved by so many, which you will see more in my next blog post 😉 Here are some favorites from Alexa & Rosco’s mini session in Chesapeake, VA.

I love it when horses are braided for their pictures, it definitely adds that special final touch
I love Rosco’s expression in so many of the pictures
Rosco has such a sweet puppy dog personality that definitely comes through in the pictures
There aren’t many horses you can trust enough to sit on the ground and lean against their leg while they graze.
Hands down one of my favorites ever!!
Of course we had to do some black backgrounds…
Alexa, thank you for allowing me to capture the special bond you have with Rosco. I know you will cherish these photos forever! <3
