One of my biggest dreams as a photographer was to take pictures of a mare with her foal in the sea. Every shooting in the sea with each individual is a very unique experience and pretty amazing. But a mare with her foal, that’s the icing on the cake 😉 And I was very lucky to have such a beautiful mare, with so much expression: Onana. Her foal has the Name Marolo and was also bred in Denmark.
I think of all the horses we had during our beach session, Onana had the most fun and enjoyed the beach a lot. Unlike the others, she wasn’t running straight back to the group or the trailer, but running a huge round on this wide and extended beach. It was like if she said: Yes, I’ll be a good photo model for you, but I also need to stretch my legs after waiting in the trailer for so long 😉 And she was a good model indeed! My favorite of the whole shooting, thanks to her beautiful and big eye and elegant head, and of course because of sweet little Marolo running next to her wherever she went and exploring the world by her side.
A horse with a strong character, enjoying a touch of freedom.
