Hello friends! My name is Anna Krause. Welcome to my website.
I am a 30-year-old wife, mama, horse lover (of course), and photographer. I’m married to my wonderfully supportive husband, Kris, and together we have our 3-year-old son named Lane. We live in the Sierra Foothills of California, in a small town called Valley Springs. We have 3 horses: Quin, Oreo and Iggy. Pictured is Quin, my little heart horse, and she is a 17-year-old registered Quarter Horse who was trained as a cowhorse (by 2 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity champions! Jake Gorrell & newest champ, Lance Johnston - also the ranch she came from. I'm kind of an NRCHA nerd these days sorrynotsorry). She has spent her recent years being retired and loved on, with scratches & cuddles being some of her most favorite things.
I fell in love with horses at a very young age, but didn’t begin riding until I was 12. I was actually a little terrified of horses when I was little, but was introduced to horseback riding as a therapeutic outlet after the loss of a loved one. It didn’t take long for me to discover how fun (addicting?) they are to be around, and I developed a really strong passion for understanding them. Horses have so many wonderful and individual characteristics, and I found myself wanting to capture that and share it with others – especially with the people that love them.
Whether you hire me to help capture your relationship with your cherished friend, photos of your horse for sale or breeding, event photography, or the other sessions I offer; just know that I'm sincerely excited to create with you and meet your needs. I absolutely love what I do and I am so thrilled you have taken the time to get to know me, as well as consider my services to create memories that will last for a long time.
