Behind the scenes…

Hi! I'm Samantha. I photograph horses and the people that love them.

I love them all - from photographing award winning stallions to rescues in remote places, I think each horse has the ability to tell us a little bit more about ourselves and the world we live in. I’ll travel anywhere I can find horses and a good story. (Check out some of my work here!)

I live in Ottawa, Ontario with my husband and our dachshund, Penny.

Yes please, I'll take three!

Yes please, I'll take three!


“The horse is a great equalizer, he doesn’t care how good looking you are, or how rich you are or how powerful you are— he takes you for how you make him feel.”

Once upon a time…

The back story.

When I was a young girl, I took horseback riding lessons. I loved going to the barn on Saturdays, playing with the barn cats, horses and the occasional litter of puppies. As I grew older though, "life" got in the way and I stopped riding. Fast-forward to 2017; I had the opportunity to get back in the saddle and I have not looked back since.

I found an incredible barn that has become my second-home, a horse named Banner who I absolutely adore and the best coaches. After a year of working with Banner, I was beyond ecstatic when my coaches gifted him to me. We have come a long way in our journey and we'll continue learning together day-by-day.
