Welcome to Memories by Chris Photography!
This is a new website for me as of October 25th~my old site crashed and burned right in the middle of a very busy horse show season, food photography shoots, portraits and Saddle Up For the Cure Ride! My main concern has been getting a few thousand proofs up for you all to view as quickly as possible while keeping some sanity, and keeping somewhat of a sense of humor. I believe everything happens for a reason and a corrupted website was just what I needed to get myself in gear to build this new site. There is still a lot of "bells and whistles" to learn with this new SmugMug website, but getting the galleries loaded was the main thing to sort out.
You can still visit my old site to view horse show proofs from 2010/2011 but I am not able to update, add or delete albums at this time. That site is http://web.me.com/memoriesbychris
I also have a greeting card business website through Send Out Cards and you can create and build personalized greeting cards with any photos~yours, mine that you purchase, or any from other photographers that you have rights to use. Most of my horse show images are sold digitally with you getting full rights to the images! Visit my site and try a free card on me! I even pay the postage! This card can be sent to anyone, including yourself~it is a frame worthy card, so put your favorite image right on the front! https://www.sendoutcards/memoriesbychris
Thank you! Live with Gratitude!

Karla Milden at Overlook Stables http://www.overlookstables.com
Without adopting a puppy from Karla, I may never had the chance to photograph her horses that led me to networking with the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse Association. (The photo of myself above was taken by her daughter Rena.)
Karla is training her horses and selling the Mountain Horse breed for Overlook Stables with Vernon and Joyce Stamper.
There will be more added to this list as I finish building this site! Thank you!
