Welcome!

If you've found your way here, chances are we have at least one thing in common: we love our animals like family.

Hey, my name's ella.

(and that's Rue)

I'm a passionate equestrian and artist currently based in Salem, Oregon. I'm a chestnut mare kinda girl and there's nothing that makes me happier than seeing the partnership someone has with their horse or dog.

Our best friends are never here with us long enough and there are only so many ways that we can thank them for the joy, companionship, and love they bring to our lives.

My promise to you...

Is personalized and stunning imagery designed to last a lifetime; the best way to keep their legacy alive.

MEET THE TEAM

AUSTIN

If we're working with more than one horse or dog, you'll probably meet Austin, my husband and assistant for all puppy wrangling & pony distracting.

LUCY

While you probably won't meet Lucy in person, rest assured she is here in the office running a very tight ship!

RUE

Finally, one of my greatest inspirations and the horse I owe so much to. Rue is also, let's be honest, the one who runs the scheduling around here. If I'm not shooting or editing, you'll find me at the barn.

WHAT MAKES US "US"

  • Lucy, our 13 year old Border Collie mix, "signed" (paw-printed) our marriage certificate as the sole legal witness
  • Rue is my 16 year old OTTB, who took me through a menagerie of OHSET events along with many medal classes back in the day.
  • I have ridden & shown in almost every discipline, but Rue & I now focus on dressage
  • Austin grew up surrounded by horses and dogs, and has been photographing horse shows for over 10 years

THINGS I LOVe...

Puppy breath, perfectly braided manes, early horse show mornings...

And most of all,

Telling your story.
