Cindy Coffey – Horse Show Photography – Under saddle portraits
Two seasons ago you took a really nice photo of Skylar Shane at one of Greenstone’s dressage shows. You might remember that I emailed you and asked if it was okay to submit the photo to Dressage Today magazine to be considered for a column where a high-profile trainer/rider critiques riders via their photo. You approved the submission as long as I included your name as the photographer. I never heard anything back from the magazine and since it was sent in over a year ago, I had completely forgotten about it. But, I received my November issue, which features junior riders, and on page 27 the first critique was of Skylar. The credit to Peter DeMott Photography is on the left, near the spine of the magazine. The critique was done by none other than Olympian, Courtney King-Dye.
It was a very nice critique, and the photo is still one of my favorites. Thanks again for allowing me to send it in.
Lindsay Steiger, senior portrait session
I am completely blown away by the portraits that Peter created for me. My boyfriend just said, “WOW!” when Peter tagged a couple of sneak peek images on Facebook. The session was a lot more fun than I thought it would be, and when I saw the finished images I was very pleased. I highly recommend Peter for senior portraits.

Just wanted to say I absolutely love the pictures! You did such a fabulous job, and you can see I ordered some right away. Glad we were neighbors at Canter Over the Mountain–hope to see you @ Cracked Oaats Crunch! I also wanted to pass along the compliments I’m getting from my Facebook pals on your photography; they really enjoyed looking at the pictures from the ride! http://pdemott.smugmug.com/Endurance-Competitive-Trail/Canter-Over-the-Mountain/13665356_e3R58

Peter, I am updating my website (sallyshaffer.com) and need a picture of ME. Yikes I hate having my picture taken. Any chance you are coming to my area anytime soon ? If I could have anyone take my picture it will be you.
P.S. Your website redesign is awesome.
Molly and Mark Regginello and their new baby Maria
This portraits are beyond amazing. You are an amazing photographer Peter. It was so fun that you captured us interacting together with Maria, not just static images of her, but portraits that have great meaning to us and will be cherished forever.

I still have the wonderful pictures you have taken of Magic and me!!! Thank you so much!!!!! You are so talented and you have given me wonderful moments w/ my horse Magic!! When I almost lost her due to EMP at three years of age after raising her from a baby, I prayed and asked GOD to just let her be a pasture buddy!! GOD gave me MORE!!!! We still have problems w/ her right lead due to the EMP!! That is okay because GOD allowed her to live and let me show her!! Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful pictures which is so very precious to me!!!!!!

Oh My Gosh Peter, I don’t know what to say. I am speechless. You are an amazing photographer.

What an AWESOME job you did on KC’s Pictures…. They turned out great! Now, just have to pick the ones we want!!! Tough decision.
Note: Sadly, K.C. was killing in an automobile accident in 2011 about a year and a half after this portrait session. This photograph was enlarged on canvas 20×30 for the visitation and for Betsy and Bob to keep in their home. In addition we made up about 15 8x10s of various portraits from the session along with about 100 wallets of various images. The 8x10s were given to relatives and the wallets were given to many of K.C. closest friends. I also gave permission for anyone to use the images from my Facebook gallery and a bookmark was made by the funeral home using this portrait. Life can change in a moment. It is important to have portraits of everyone you love.
