A man and his horses: Papa John

Well, it's happened again. It looks like this thing has turned into a full blown photography blog, which really isn't too bad. I'm hoping I can tell a few interesting stories here and there, but for now I'll tell them through the photos I post.

I flew back from Sacramento on Tuesday and my manfriend's dad asked me if I would go down to the stables and take a few photos of him with his horses. I definitely took way more than a few. Papa John Kurtz is John Wayne's alter ego. His house is filled wall to wall with southwestern memorabilia, cowboy decor, and horse paraphernalia. He has this magnificent American Indian headdress sitting on a pedestal in the corner. He crafts amazing things with leather and has painted the most beautiful cowboys and countrysides. He is a real meat and potatoes man, and has conquered absolute mountains in life. He graciously lets my whirlwind messes through his house on a weekly basis. He has raised the most handsome and talented and loving son and the sweetest fun-loving daughters in the whole wide world. And he loves his horses.


  1. WOW! these are phenomenal, lady! Love your work! :)

    1. Aw thanks girl. (Yee my first comment haha) I'm really bad at getting myself out there so I figured this would be a good place to start.
