  7. Dear Santa, I always secretly knew you really lived in South Dakota … on a ranch, and that those reindeer were really beautiful horses. I just knew it … I did!

    “… balances ranch life, photography, jewelry making, cooking & blogging” – Dang. And I was pretty stoked when I managed to balance home life, photography & blogging this summer … cooking wasn’t even on my list ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Absolutely LOVE your photos but I’m particularly smitten with the herd of horses … totally stunning!

  10. Caroline says:

    I adore your photos <3

  11. Emily says:

    Being a horse lover – or should I say a horse worshiper – I didn’t think I would say this, but my favorite picture is picture number 3. The angle and the colors are just breathtaking. The only detail which would make that picture even more amazing is …. wait for it ….. a horse ๐Ÿ™‚ a horse roaming somewhere in the distant background. Then I woul be totally in love with the picture. Maybe I can photoshop a pic of my horse.
    Great pictures and great blog. Love the title! it is not because we like being around horse s…. that we are not stylish too.

  12. Bailey Hartway says:

    Love your photos! I always feel like I’m right there, such beauty in SD!

  13. Jessica Cordes says:

    Yay! I too am a big fan of Jenn! She does amazing work and I think it would be a very hard choice on what to pick as the winner! She is one talented lady!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Amy J. says:

    I love Jenn’s work, which I got to see via a FB click of a high school friend.

    I am always amazed at how much she gets done in a day or week in SD. I bought one of her turquoise necklaces and it is one of my favorites. Her photos are amazing–just bought her calendar for my parents.

    I love the South Dakota Cowgirl’s work. I’m a cowgirl who fell in love with a cityboy, so now I’m stuck in the city, trying to cope with missing the wide open skies, cattle bawling, and more importantly, missing my horses. I love all of Jenn’s work, and when I see a new photo, it makes me feel like I’m back home on the ranch. Love it, and sometimes just those photos help me get through the day!

  16. Cheryl says:

    I love The South Dakota Cowgirl. I just recently discovered her and started following her on Face Book.

  17. Lindsay says:

    I interned at the ranch last summer and got to witness Jenn’s busyness first hand!! Her cooking is excellent ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Ann says:

    I can’t wait for my photo session with Jenn in TimberLake in Nov.!

  19. Paula Holzer says:

I can’t express how your photos have brightened my days. I tell everyone i know about your website n what u do…

  20. Amy L. says:

    Thank you for introducing us to another great photographer and rancher. It is great to share a sometimes tough and busy, but beautiful lifestyle with others. Thanks!

  21. Tayler Money says:

    Missing the country life, I am a student studying fashion marketing. I grew up on a farm and this is my second year a way from home and I’m counting down the days until I can get back to the country and start my own career and life. These pictures remind me of how blessed I was to grow up with such beautiful scenery. They took me back in time for a bit! Thanks Raquel for sharing the South Dakota Cowgirl, I will defiantly be taking a look at what else she has to offer.

  22. Sue Kaakee says:

    I love The South Dakota Cowgirl and I follow her on Face Book ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Deb Shimon says:

    Hi Jenn, Your photo’s are really lovely. There is a lot of beauty in South Dakota, sometimes you just have to see it in a special light. Jim and I are moving to the Hermosa area yet this fall. So can I say that I will be a South Dakota Cowgirl too, just an older model!! LOL We still plan to sponsor the 2013 Buck clinic again in Decorah. Do you plan to ride?

    • Deb- you’re moving to Hermosa? It’s beautiful out there!

      What classes are you hosting? We would love to come again if we can. Let me know what weekend and classes! Maybe I’ll just shoot you a FB msg. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for staying in touch!

  26. I Love Jenn’s work! We are re-doing our 130 old farmhouse kitchen which has never been touched and when it is all shiny and new there is a perfect place just waiting for a print!!!!!!!!

  27. Lorna says:

    The South Dakota Cowgirl photos are what every cowgirl sees in her dreams i think, whether city-cowgirl or country one! Nice work.

  28. Kathy Irwin says:

    What beautiful pictures! I may not be able to ride anymore, but the love never goes away! Once an Okie, forever an Okie!

  29. kelsey says:

    I ride in Texas and I love it but it would be sooo cool to travel and ride through all different states this is absolutely stunning!!!!!!

  30. Cara Orr says:

    Jenn’s photos make me want to quit my stressful corporate job in Dallas, buy a horse and a ranch and slow down and enjoy life. I love the sense of peace and “one with nature” feeling that staring at her photos provides me!

  31. Becky says:

    Ooooh, I love her work! She is a very talented woman!!

  32. Jessy @ WestEastern says:

    She is one talented lady and I’ve been keeping up with her posts for a while now!

  33. Holly Folkerts says:

    You are so talented, farming and ranching is a hard and demanding job just by itself, Love your spunk and how you take on everything. You make me strive to work a little harder towards my dreams.

  34. Dianna says:

    I miss the country life.Wish I was in your boots.You have it all. You deserve it all. GOD bless you and all you do.
