While dressage isn't the only thing I shoot, my background as a dressage rider shapes how I shoot.
Like many dressage riders, I'm a meticulous perfectionist and thus, laser-focused on my precision in-camera. I strive to capture the most biomechanically correct, flattering moment in any given movement. My goal is always to highlight expression and connection - whether down centerline or during a private shoot.
For the past 5 years I have been privileged to be part of the internationally renowned Susan J. Stickle Photography team. You can find me at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida over the winter, the US Dressage Festival of Champions, various USDF Regional Championships throughout the fall and the US Dressage Finals.
I'm based in Roswell, Georgia with my husband Sam Sower, our German Shepherd Ash and two white horses: Reina, a 14-year-old Andalusian mare and Silver, an 21-year-old Quarter horse gelding I fell in love with at Mount Holyoke College. I graduated from MHC in 2014 where I studied English, Geography and Film. While there, I was an active member of their Intercollegiate Dressage Association Team. Shooting team practices and shows sparked my pursuit of equine photography.
