Hi everyone! I'm back again with my "Behind the Scenes" from my second shoot from the Winter 2011 edition of Twist Collective.

I spent most of my childhood summers on a farm, the very same farm you have seen in past features on Twist (Roxham farm & Return to Roxham).

Considering I'm a bit of a farm girl, I have a big secret - I'm afraid of horses!  Less so in the past few years since my mother has become the owner of a few retired old horses.

So you can imagine my concern when we decided to do the shoot at a stable in Hudson, Quebec. Having my head behind the camera it was very difficult to keep an eye on the whereabouts of all the horses. I was so happy we had two amazing horse handlers - Joanne and Dani to take care of me. My lens got smeared a few times by a few curious noses but other than that no trampled toes. Phew.
