From Victoria Souza Photography Blog

“Last July, Vicki and I received an email inquiring about having us do an unorthodox photo shoot for one Nancy Shulins, and her magnificent thoroughbred horse Eli. Oh, and by the way, could we do it within the next week, and have the photos ready within the next couple of days after? We of course said “Yes”!, even though July for us was already jam packed with weddings and engagement sessions (nine in all), and proceeded to pack up our gear for the drive out to the farm for the shoot. …” >> Read the entire blog by Eli’s favorite photographer.

From Partners West Book Distributing

“This beautifully written memoir follows former Associated Press correspondent Nancy Shulins journey of letting go of her dream–having a child–and working toward another one: learning to ride and, eventually, having her own horse. In the process, she learned what it means to love another being so much you can’t imagine life without them. Falling for Eli is about learning to break a sweat rather than break down, to try your best even if you’ll never be the best; it’s about learning to stand on your own six feet.” >> Read the entire post.
