Meet Me

Welcome to my photography! I'm Ceara Hackman, owner & photographer! I currently live in Boyertown, Pennsylvania with my husband, our sassy ginger cat Hobbes, and 2 adorable pups.

We got married on January 14th, 2018, and we are so happy to be starting this new adventure together. I come from Pueblo, Colorado, where we first met and I first established my photography business. I have been in love with what I do for 8 years now, and my loves grows with every single shoot!

I work part time as a merchandising specialist at Best Buy. I spend my mornings / mid day organizing the store & down stocking (which is oddly my therapy….I love organizing), & then the rest of my days are open for photo shoots. Weekends are spent at local horse shows, pet fairs, and any other event I’m booked for. I do love my weeks!!

Surprisingly, I am super shy and quiet in normal life, but the moment I get a camera in my hands I am one of the most outgoing people you have ever met! Photography gives me the courage to do anything, and I love being able to share that experience with my clients.

Horses have become one of my main specialties over the years as I have furthered my career in the equestrian community. I have been around horses since I was 11 years old, and it is an unending passion of mine. Being able to capture the absolutely breathtaking moment of a free gallop across the pasture during turnout or the perfect harmony of horse and rider in the ring is one of my favorite things in the world. Seeing how happy my clients are when receiving the photos that remind them of this, day after day, hanging on their wall or in their memories on Facebook, that's right up there with it! I pride myself on being able to capture the partnership, beauty, & love of all horses and their owners.

As it is with horses, I have found that no photo shoot or show is the same. Every shoot I find something new that challenges me and makes me strive to produce stunning new images. Horses are unpredictable, they are exciting and beautiful and strong. And that is exactly what I shoot for in my wor
