I was honored to be asked to volunteer my time and talents to photograph the therapy horses and farm animals at HorsePower Therapeutic Riding in St. Charles, IL!  The therapy animals of HorsePower are the shining stars of this photo fundraiser.  All proceeds will be donated back to HorsePower!   HorsePower truly does incredible things for incredible people.  I am happy to help them out and support such a great organization right here in Kane County, Illinois.  

I spent several hours at the beautiful Honey Bridge Ranch in St. Charles, IL, where HorsePower is located.   It is an absolutely beautiful property and facility, with the nicest people and animals!   The residents include horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, ducks, chickens, cats, dogs, and rabbits.  I loved capturing not only their beauty but their amazing personalities as well.  Some of the therapy animals made me laugh as they walked right up to me.  They were super interested in my cameras!  

Students, friends, and supporters of HorsePower are able to purchase professional photo items of these great animals as part of this fundraiser.  Their favorite therapy animals can be printed on canvases, coffee mugs, key chains, prints, mouse pads, and more!  What a great keepsake and a great way to help support this non-profit organization!

And here are some favorites from my time with these absolutely incredible therapy animals.  ♥
