JC - Originals Photography


Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is where I share sneak peeks with my clients and tidbits of my family through photography. I'm very blessed to be doing what I've always wanted to do... stay at home with my 3 beautiful children and photograph those around me; all with the support of my loving husband. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a little bit of us and my photography! Oh and I love comments... Let me know you're reading and what you like about it!

Many, many years ago our family went to the State Fair. And while there, we had this plaque made to hang over our gate at my parents' house. It no longer hangs, but sits on the ground near the gate. It's a little worn from all the years. We never had more than 2 horses, but we still thought it would be neat to name our little place.

Well, the other night, I went to my parents' house for dinner and found it by the gate.

The view across the street at my parents' house is quite nice too... Usually it's maize, but this year it's corn growing. Supposedly, the crop growers are getting more for corn due to the fuel potential.

Just a little snap of the boy in his John Deere shirt... Kind of went along with the theme of the evening. Plus his eyes were so blue that night.

Many people wouldn't know it, but I have a horse. She is 25 years old and I've had her since she was 2. She lives with my parents and her name is King's Red Frosty because her red coat is frosted with white hair, but we call her Frosty. I had another horse, but he passed while I was pregnant with Haidyn. His name was Frisky... I can't remember his registered name for the life of me. I'll have to find a scanned picture of him to share later.

I have to say, for her age, she still looks pretty good.

Look at her eyes... It's almost like she has a story to tell from all the things she has seen in her years.

This picture is pretty funny... My dad let her into the other pasture since the grass had grown up pretty well and she was checking it out. I guess she smelled something quite strange!
So that was a little bit of our day at K Bar N! I'll have to take some pics of the dogs the next time I'm out there. I went a little horse crazy taking pictures of Frosty. I hadn't photographed her in years and this past Thanksgiving we almost lost her to colic. We don't know how many years she has left in her, but hopefully it's many more!

Frosty is beautiful!!!!!!! My dream (and still a dream) was to own a horse. I always wanted a horse instead of a car when I was 15, but my parents told me that I couldn't ride a horse to school. I love horses - they are beautiful animals. I love riding on them and that feeling of freedom. When I was in Montana for a summer I stayed at a few homes that summer that owned horses. I always rode in the evenings when we had the horses around to be alone and have down time. I remember one night it was me and 2 others and we took the horses up a mountain to watch the sunset - what a site. :) Thanks for letting me share some great memories!!! :)

Thank you, Kim! I love to ride and can't believe I haven't ridden in almost 10 years. I hope to have another young horse one day and get back into riding. Horses were my world way back when... I can't believe I ever lost touch with them. Just busy with everyday life. Taking these pics really brought back those memories and made me want to throw a saddle on her and take off like we used to!

Thank you, Jana! I really enjoyed just taking these snaps the other night without any expectations. Caleb had fun too! We need to hold ourselves to some playdates like we were talking about!

Looks like a fun day. I love taking pictures of animals and all of their amazing detail.

Hey, we have something else in common! I, too, was major horse-obsessed when I was younger. I took riding lessons and did have my own horse, but we sold him when I became more interested in driving a car. At any rate, I am still a big horse lover. She does look good for 25 years and I know that is getting on up there. I think horses are probably the most beautiful animals out there, followed closely by some dogs, and I think it would be so fun to photograph one! She looks so sweet!

Julie--definitely a small world as we reveal more and more things that we have in common. I still think it's funny that we are both so excited that Taco Cabana is coming to Rockwall... I thought most would think I was crazy liking that place!

But, yes... I lived and breathed horses when I was younger. There is actually something 'horse-related' in practically every room in my house!
