Catelijne is from Holland and  she is running her own business;  sourcing, training and selling true bred Spanish horses, from her ranch in Andalucia. When we met,  we just had to ask her if she would be the model for the first Hippi Grace photo shoot ever. We are so happy & it was great fun!

Sometimes an opportunity passes your way and you have to catch it... do you ?

Being introduced to the opportunity to take part in a workshop,  covering photo and horse riding in Portugal, at Quinta da Fé (www.quintadafe.com).  Wow - yes.... would like to... but....just done it  !

The workshop was arranged by photographer  Line Moen, living in Norway (www.ridehesten.no)  and photographer, Helen Marie Nilsson,  from Sweden, living in Spain (www.caballoscasares.com) Two ladies with lots of knowledge and great teachers & organizers !

What a fantastic course, finally learning to understand the composition of a picture after attending a  few courses understanding the menu of the camera...  It is important to learn to take photos for my new job in this new media world, being able to do a proper presentation on the 'run'. 

The plus effect was the horse riding, a sport one never forgets when first started. Time to get back in the saddle after prioritized family and lots of work, work, work for many years.  

What photoshoot sessions the two ladies arranged for us. Have a look for yourself ...

10 ladies, different nationalities and so much fun. This was a real adventure one never will forget.  One of the participants will also represent Hippi Grace in the new summer collection for 2013 ! A closer presentation to follow...

Never forget - be a little hippi with grace  - in between !
