As a Mom of a 4 year old toddler, I kinda have an idea of what little kids in that age like and dislike. Boys are crazy about Paw Patrol, and girls just absolutely LOVE Unicorns.
So I came up with the idea of some Unicorn and Princess theme for my next overdue equine fantasy photo shoot.
After contacting some local equine friends, I was able to find a beautiful white Quarter horse named Jasper, that looked just perfect for this part. His owners are heavily involved in natural horsemanship and showing, so Jasper was perfectly trained and was a charm to work with, especially around little kids.
Unicorn Jasper with Princess Nora:
I had three little girls that were all Unicorn obsessed: Nora (6 yrs), and sisters Olivia (5 yrs) and Becca (3 yrs). They were all in love with this big white horse, especially 5 year old Olivia did not want to stop riding him!

These equine fantasy photo shoots also give me an opportunity to play around with my editing techniques. Sometimes I went back and forth and could not decide on my "fairytale style". Here is an example: dark or light. I posted it on Facebook and created a poll. The dark version was definitely the crowd favorite. Which one would you prefer?
