Majestic Equine Shoot with Leigh and Fox

For those that know me, you know I am NOT a morning person.  I have seen the sunrise more times by staying up late than getting up early.  With that said, you simply cannot beat sunrise light quality when it comes to photography- especially in the summertime when the heat is unbearable during the day making sunset still too hot to shoot.  For this shoot with Leigh and her horse, Fox, we met up just before sunrise at the Atlanta Polo grounds in Buckhead.  Leigh has had Fox for the past 8 years and won many events in Hunting and Jumping competitions across the state.  At one point she was ranked 2nd in Georgia in her age group!  Now, as Leigh is about to head out to California for college, her family has decided to sell Fox to new owners that will continue to ride him.  Her parents asked that I get some photos of the two of them before the sale and I was happy to oblige.  These photos have turned out to be some of the best ones I've taken all year.  A few of them could only be more majestic if Fox were a unicorn.  :)
