Hi Friend! I'm Samantha Dawn Ebeling!

I am a published and award winning equine photographer from Kansas, USA.

Horses are the absolute core of my life & my entire life has been molded around them. They are everywhere surrounding me at any given time. They've been the center of my world since I can first remember.

I, too, was that “weird” girl in school who was known for being obsessed with horses. Horses have taught me so much about life, myself, and simply how to “be in the moment.” Somewhere along my journey it was only natural that my career of choice would combine both of my loves into one: Horses and Photography.

25+ years combined of owning, riding, helping train at times, studying, and enjoying them in my life has helped hone in my skills to be able to properly photograph them. I have an extensive amount of experience in many breeds and breed standards.

My photography is more than a “job” to me.
It's my passion. I live it. I breathe it. I dream it. It is all encompassing.

I want to give people ART of their horses that makes them remember why they fell in love with The Horse and never looked back.

My goal is to make you FEEL emotion, to connect with every horse in my photographs. I want to show you the SOUL of the horse through my eyes and lens. Feel their power. Their strength. Their heart.

I never just want to be a photographer who “takes a photo” - I want to turn that horse into what THE HORSE has been for centuries....ART. I would love to see your horse be a part of my ART. ♥♘

✈️Traveling Equine Photographer ✈️

You can find me traveling the United States at least 100-150 days out of the year! While I live in Kansas there are very few states I've not visited clients for photoshoots!

I reside here in Kansas with my Husband, Jonathan Ebeling !! Jonathan is a 7 year US Army Combat Veteran who bravely served two tours in Afghanistan.

Jonathan is my anchor & plays the biggest "behind the scenes" roll in my business. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for him.

We are blessed with 2 horses, 2 dogs, and a cat! They are our "kids."
