On a typically bright and sunny day in Miami, Florida, eight young women entered a contemporary studio to shoot the cover story for the latest issue of Noelle Floyd Magazine. They may have modeled like pros, but you probably know their faces for a different reason: they’re the same ones you’ve seen flying over towering, five-foot oxers at horses shows all around the globe.

But on April 12th, 2017, when Catherine Tyree, Alexandra Crown, Karen Polle, Mavis Spencer, Lucy Deslauriers, Adrienne Sternlicht, Kara Chad, and Katherine Strauss took center stage to be photographed in an environment where no horses could be found, they were under an entirely different set of bright lights.

We hope you enjoy this intimate, behind-the-scenes look at our magazine cover shoot. To get your hands on a copy of our Spring 2017 issue, you can subscribe at NoelleFloyd.com.
