This lovely 8 year old girl showed up at this photo session wearing a short sleeved polo shirt. I started to photograph her but felt that her white shirt was too bright and didn't look equestrian enough...I borrowed her mother's (!) coat and hid as much of the bulk of the over sized jacket as I could. Riders don't wear velvet helmets very often, unless they are doing competition. But, I asked them to bring it to use as lovely prop...she has blue eyes that sparkle even in black and white!
