I am left rather speechless at the moment with the photos you have sent. In no way was I prepared to feel as moved as I did when I saw them. You are a true artist, one who makes somebody feel something when looking at your art. The photo that pulled biggest on my heart was the one you took of my Dusty Boy, 34 years, and most of them we have spent together. I had tears in my eyes not only seeing his photo (beautiful), but many, many others. You have such an incredible gift as an equine photographer and the ability to transcend it into art.
You are a magician with a camera, and a lovely person on top of that.
Thank you and many blessings to you.

Thank you so much. You have really captured my horses' spirits. You are world class and such an artist. The photo you took of Dusty is priceless, especially at his age. Photographing horses can be difficult, but you have an incredible eye and understanding of the spirit of the horse. The Southwest region is extremely luck and blessed to have you here!

" Ozana photographed our Shires and I was extremely pleased with the results. She has the ability to capture the horse and display its qualities extremely well. I was very impressed with her work and would recommend her for any private or professional work that involves horses. I feel very fortunate to have had her on the farm taking pictures as it has allowed me through pictures to communicate better with my clientele.

" My family bought me a photo session with Ozana for my birthday. I had just purchased a Missouri Foxtrotter mare and I was so excited to have professional photos of Rain and I. Ozana was wonderful during the photo session. She knew exactly how to position my horse and I to make the most of the setting. The photos were amazing! Thank you so much. I will enjoy the photos from that day for a long time. "

I recently completed a photo shoot with Ozana for Equissenitals of Santa Fe. As a horsewoman and photo enthusiast, working with Ozana was a pleasure for me. I have long admired her photography. During the session I felt confident and relaxed and the time flew by. Best of all were the results: Ozana captures the spirit of the horse, the rider and the bond between them. This session was fashion shoot and Ozana’s keen eye for light, color, texture and composition brought all the elements together beautifully. I highly recommend Ozana. The proof is in her pictures.

" Ozana Photography took a picture of my horse Blazing Hot Patriot (and me) at a Buck Brannaman clinic at The Trinity Ranch in Santa Fe . What makes it so special to me is that it shows Patriot`s softness, loyalty, and his enormous patience through the expression of his eye when working with me. A very simple moment of training became a beautiful piece of art and gives me a new perspective of my horse while working. It helps me to never lose respect for his uniqueness and his friendship. The price is absolutely appropriate considering this awesome result. The picture will always have a special place in our house." ~ Fabian Saak ~ Alamogordo New Mexico
"Ozana is one of the most talented photographers I know. She has a special ability to see an object and take it to higher artistic level. I've followed her work for the past couple of years and am continually amazed at the creativity and way she can capture the true nature of her subject. Highly recommended! "

" I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how impressed I am with your photos. The photos taken of my daughter were while she practiced vaulting and while she played at the stables. They are wonderful. I was so impressed I purchase each of the photos taken of my daughter. Paying with Paypal was so easy and now I have wonderful digital photos of my daughter and have had them printed in a couple different sizes . I can't thank you enough. "

" Ozana, thank you so very much for the beautiful photos!! You have the amazing ability to capture the beauty of a horse and woman’s relationship…to see tenderly into their souls, the touching connection they share and the essence of that special timeless love. You are extremely professional, yet very personable and patient, which adds to the enjoyment of the sessions. The photos have a stunning, artistic quality that I will forever treasure. I simply cannot thank you enough for everything! "
~ Janet Erickson ~ Rio Ranchos NM
I just wanted to let you know how OBSESSED I am with your photography. You're the best photographer I have EVER seen and your work is absolutely stunning. What a role model you are! If you ever need any help at all, PLEASE let me know. It would be such an honor. You are so very talented!
Thank you for everything you do,

Thank you again for the remarkable photographs of our two mares, Cheyenne and Chili. Even though we spend many hours with them every day, we didn't realize how truly beautiful they are until we saw the amazing professional photographs you took. You managed to capture perfectly the calm wisdom of the 17 year old, and the youthful curiosity of her lively companion, a five year old mini. We've taken dozens of pictures of them over the years but they've never come out well, so we appreciate how difficult equine photography is. You made it look easy and the session was fun and engaging for all of us. The mini looked for your car for a long time after you left.

Ozana had taken some photos of a horse I lease that really impressed me so I hired her to take photos of my elderly mare. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out because my mare isn’t very active anymore so it’s hard to get many dramatic shots of her. I was really pleased with the quality of the photos of my mare and would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a photographer.
