This is by far the best job yet- we would never have visited that place in a million years if she hadn't landed that shoot. Between pictures Sissy and I visited the horses and chatted with real live Japanese cowboys (and one cowgirl). They were so friendly and happy to talk about their horses. Apparently Sunshine Stables is a sort of riding club (that also rents out space for photo shoots), there are even little cabins above the stables where people can stay overnight. Despite the fact that the cabins might have smelled of horse pucky- I would have LOVED LOVED LOVED to have the opportunity to stay overnight- going for a ride on the beach, a big bonfire, and friendly company- sounds like a perfect night!
To be honest- I am not sure where Sissy's pictures are going to show up- magazines, billboards? It was a big company (I'll say what when the pictures actually come out.) It should be interesting though!

|last shoot was at the beach- couldn't keep this little girl out of the sand! She found so many shells, my pockets were full!! But I have to say I did dip my toes in the water- pure heaven...|
Overall, I really like what I have seen of Chiba so far. Once we were out of the city, we saw fields, wide open spaces and big houses. It was so refreshing and peaceful. Tokyo really is a concrete jungle. As magnificent as it is (and I really do heart Tokyo)- it is nice to get away to the peaceful countryside- it is good for the soul!
Oh- as you may notice I have a new look to my blog. I couldn't find the cherry blossom pic I had up there before- so I stuck one up of Sissy from this modeling shoot I just wrote about. Just FYI...
PS- the pictures are all out of order- not sure what I did here- hopefully thet make some sense....
