The Fonz! One of the top 14 horses in the country recently turned 4 years old. He was so happy about his birthday cake, we managed to get him to smile!
Camilla, a local Veterinarian at West Ashley Vet Clinic, (located in the old Cross Seed Co. building) has owned Fonzie since he was just a little pony and has patiently worked him and trained him to be one of the best in the country.
As a surprise, Kevin Meek, Camilla’s husband and owner of Rock Creek Craftsmen, hired us to photograph Fonzie’s 4 year confirmation photo and they had a little birthday party out at Stono River Riding Academy on John’s Island. Camilla has had Fonzie’s confirmation shot taken every year and has watched him grow from a young pony into his rebellious teenage years.
Isn’t he cute? Actually cute is probably not the right word. Stunningly handsome might be a much better way to describe this magnificent specimen of a horse. His coat shimmered in the sun and he was so full of personality! And I was just lucky enough to capture a glimmer of that with my camera.
I love my job!
What about you? Do you get portraits made with your pets? Do they play an important role in your family? They really can bring us so much joy.
