Susan, the owner of Pretty Petal Studio on Etsy, photographs many subjects ranging from still-lifes, to people, to animals. Of course, it was her photographs of horses that caught my eye while browsing Etsy the other day.
I love that her photographs, while often composed of portrait style shots of specific horses, have such a "fine art" feel that they give their subjects a more universal appeal--much like a painting or drawing. I would happily hang one (or a collection) of her photographs in my home, and never feel like I had random photos of someone's horses decorating my walls.
The soft pastel quality of light in these photos makes them particularly appealing. The mood and atmosphere in each composition is calm, warm, and optimistic.
A few of my favorites:
