What was it like being photographed at Darby Dan Farms, one of the most prestigious horse farms in KY for the very first Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar?
Darby Dan Farm was so beautiful! It was a little surreal for the owners to welcome us onto their farm where the Queen of England has stayed and Secretariat was filmed. One of the other models, Stephanie, and I even got a chance to roam the grounds and take pictures. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have been photographed at such a respected place in Kentucky!
