May 5, 2022 - A Show-Stopper Under the Arena Lights

By Kate Staples, Kate Staples Photography

Eminence, Missouri

About This Session:

I have known this girl longer than I've known my husband. She was the flower girl in our wedding, at age 11. Now she's blossomed into one of the prettiest moms-to-be I've ever photographed. She chose the Darla dress by Leather & Lace Custom Threads, and it was an absolute show-stopper under the arena lights at GauxPro Performance Horses in Joplin. The location was chosen by Madison as well, and hearkens to her years winning Miami Rodeo Teen Queen 2016 & 2017.


Equipment Used:

Canon R5

Canon 85mm 1.2 L

Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART
