We Love What We do

As a portrait artist, I have a deep passion for helping riders to record their connection with their horses through personal original photographic works of art.
Several clients have told me that they regret that they never got around to having portraits made with their past horses. They have photos on their phones but hadn't yet had a custom photo session, designed and planned specifically for them and their horses.
When you commission me and Jim, we take care of every singe detail. Whether it's a canvas portrait of you in breeches, standing next to your horse with ears up, or an album covered in buttery distressed leather, branded with your name, we won't be satisfied until you are delighted. -- Jenn

About Jennifer Lindberg

Jenn abandoned her studies at Cambridge University to dedicate herself to shooting hard-hitting photojournalism. Her work has been published in the New York Times, US News & World Report, Marie Claire and many others. She won a "Picture of the Year" award from the National Press Photographers Association for her portrait of an orphan in Mozambique who had lost his parents to AIDS. Jenn started photographing weddings & portraits as an antidote to the daily suffering she witnessed as a photojournalist. Being surrounded by beauty and connection made a welcome change from the gritty realism of her work. In 2012, Jenn became a mom through international adoption. Becoming a mother changed her, shifting her creative focus to families and children. Today Jenn passionately documents and records life histories. Her equestrian and equine portraits--including the posed ones--are characterized by a relaxed authenticity. She lives with her husband and partner, Jim, in their Victorian home in Lockhart, Texas, with their two children. They love visits with Jenn's wonderful stepdaughter who is doing her medical residency in San Antonio. Jenn and Jim recently purchased and restored a historic building on the town square that is now a Premier Destination Studio & Gallery. Slowly but surely their lives are looking less and less like an HGTV show!


About Jim Pitts

With a background in engineering and management consultancy, perhaps Jim is an unlikely photographer. But truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction. Jim studied photography in college and when he met Jenn in 2006, he started assisting her on weekends to spend more time together. When they got married in 2008, Jim gave up corporate life and devoted himself to photography full time. He loves capturing those small moments that unfold quickly and he has become a lighting expert, both for outdoor and Studio Portraits. Jim grew up on a family farm in Iowa and received his horse, "Flippa," for his 9th birthday. Jim later spent a couple of years in Japan, so he's a pretty Zen guy, low key and patient. When he's not taking photographs, he turns his creativity to woodworking and meticulously restoring the Victorian home he shares with Jenn. He has also been involved in remodeling their historic Studio and Guest Loft on Lockhart's Main Square, hand scraping the long leaf pine floors that were discovered upstairs. Jim is proud to have a daughter who is completing her Medical Residency while also serving in the U.S. military, and dotes on a couple of adorable kids he adopted with Jenn.

" Jenn and Jim did such an amazing job of photographing Avery with her horses. And they even delivered a framed portrait to our house and hung it up! It makes me so happy whenever I pass by. Thank you, Jenn and Jim."

Sandy Griffin, Austin

" Her work does not have that stilted artificial feel. It’s authentic and artful, which takes a lot of talent--and even genius--to pull off."

Tracy Schorn, Washington DC

" The portrait you took of my daughter and my wife is now the first thing I see when I walk in my front door. Thank you for the beautiful reminder of who everything I do is for."

David Pfeiffer, San Antonio

" The Portrait  in our Den is so vivid and lifelike, it's as if they are right here! My only regret is wishing I had done this sooner. Your work has literally moved me to tears."

Jeanine Capeheart, Hunt
