Being in business for the last twenty years has given us contacts we wouldn’t have had otherwise. Amanda and her daughter, Lacey, are some of our clients we’ve really enjoyed getting to know.¬†A few months back, Amanda made an appointment for a senior session for her daughter.¬†Besides being a teacher in Groveton and a Young Living consultant, Amanda spends much of her time traveling with her daughter all across Texas to her FFA events and barrel racing competitions. Lacey’s eighteen years belies all the awards and recognitions she’s received; and because she’s also very articulate, I’m going to let her tell you about Starr.
“My favorite animal is a horse. My favorite horse is Starr Lena. Who am I ?¬†¬†Who is Starr Lena? Well let me explain, I am Lacey Stubblefield, a senior at Groveton High School, and a eight time National Little Britches Rodeo finals qualifier.¬†¬†Starr Lena is my diva barrel horse.¬†
Starr Lena and I have a bond like sisters. Sometimes we push each other’s limits but we always love and respect each other.¬†¬†Starr is my rodeo athlete.¬†¬†I’m so thankful every time I get to throw a leg over her and ride .¬†
Starr and I haven’t always had the perfect journey but it has made us who we are. Starr and I have been through many trials together.¬†¬†Starr was diagnosed with a disease called EPM that took her out of¬†¬†competition for over a year.¬†¬†The disease affected her brain and nervous system.¬†¬†It took time for her to recuperate and we had to learn to trust each other again. Most horses don’t survive from this disease but,¬†¬†my tough girl did.¬†
Starr and I are back on the rodeo trail again. Starr loves to take selfies on my phone. She has lots of personality and she is a little Powerball full of energy, but very down to earth. If you ever meet Starr she will leave an impression on you. “
Lacey is not your typical high school senior, and neither is Starr your typical pet. But, many of us have a bond with our pet that we have a hard time describing with words. And, isn’t that what makes it beautiful? If you’ve not had a professional portrait taken with your pet(s), now’s the perfect time. With our “Paws for Pets” special, we’ll donate half of the session price to our local Humane Society. Visit our website or give us a call to schedule portraits of your pet.
