I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the horses while I was at Punta Cana Excellence resort in the Dominican Republic. While most of them were a bit scrawnier than the warmbloods and quarter horses I am used to seeing here in Canada (no doubt due to the lack of decent quality hay available), their ribs weren’t showing and they seemed relatively healthy and their hooves were well trimmed.
I met this gorgeous black stallion (yes! stallion!) that doubled as our unicorn to pull the carriage for the bride. I can’t quite remember his name as it was spanish but it sounded very noble, and he was a noble creature indeed. He was probably one of the nicer horses in the Dominican, still small but well muscled and not a hint of a rib showing. He extremely well mannered and stood there patiently with a carriage attached to him as I fumbled around with the unicorn horn trying to attach it just right. I captured this photo right before we had to leave to go to the wedding ceremony, which by the way I am still processing. I photographed a wedding that literally had rainbows and unicorns?? Yes. Yes I did. I have the BEST clients EVER.
More snow?? Winter will be over before you know it! And then comes the mud and muck.. ugh!! Let’s enjoy the nice clean snow while we can ;)
Our lovely model is Ivy the great dane wearing a Crazy Beautiful collar.
Meet Conroy. This handsome flame-point fella was adopted from the Ottawa Humane Society and is quite the character. Like most cats, as soon as I started setting up he curled up right in front of the lights and dead center on the backdrop. Exactly where I needed him to be, cats are awesome to shoot. I had originally set up my studio lights and planned to use them as my main source of light but the sunlight on a cloudy day gave me the perfect light to shoot these photos.
Interested in a cat photo session? I have been doing a lot of these lately, and almost all of them go exactly like this one. Who says cats are difficult to shoot? Shoot me an email at LGravelinePhotography@gmail.com for more information or to book a session.
Check out some of the adorable faces I met this weekend at a fundraiser shoot to support the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue. These guys could make some pretty darn cute valentines day cards!
Sad that you missed the event? I will be at the Pet Valu in Manotick this Sunday Feb. 16th from 12:00-4:00 to support Sit With Me dog rescue.

Cats and dogs hard to photograph together? Nahh,, Archie and Ares show us how it’s done.
Please be my Valentine?
