Plum Island Sunset PortraitsPortraits of Loved Ones by Richard HydrenPlum Island Sunset Portraits

As we left the parking area at the north beach on Plum Island, I suggested to Tamora that she walk the dog out to the beach on the boardwalk, turn right at the end and continue along the water’s edge to where her son and I would be waiting with everything set up. As she and the dog started in the desired direction, her son and I carried my equipment across the sandy pathway thinking I would have just enough time to prepare the camera and lights. But to my surprise, she was much longer than anticipated. What happened? I asked when she finally appeared around the bend in the beach.

“I failed to tell you this is the first time my puppy has seen sand and the water. She went crazy at the end of the boardwalk, running around and around me until the lead wrapped my legs so tightly I couldn’t stand up. And no one could help me because they we all laughing so hard.”

At 6:45 in the morning Jacquline’s horse had no interest in posing with her head held high and ears pointing forward. The lawn between the driveway and this wonderful fence was all she cared about. The pattern of light and shadow from the early morning sun created just the right setting to allow the horse to be herself and me the time I needed to pose Jacquline for a delightful equine portrait.

Lauren is a physical therapist who worked with me after surgery last year. In gratitude for the wonderful job she did getting me ready for skiing and hiking again I invited her to bring her dog into the studio for this black and white “connections” portrait.

Even with his winter coat this jet black gelding sparkled in the early winter light. Not often I can capture such an amazing coat after it's grown out.

Deb has been a dear friend and client for many years. When she hired me to create a new business portrait for her with her horse I was more than delighted. Showing the connections between my clients and the animals they own is just as rewarding as doing childhood portraits because the love and caring in their faces can not be matched.

"Oh this will be easy, we'll just shake a bucket of grain out here and they will all pop their heads out for you to take a picture!"

Well, I've been around horses too long to buy that one. This image is a perfect example of what I mean when I say, "The art and magic of photography is the ability to capture what cannot be seen."
