Sometimes you meet someone and you just know that you're going to be great friends! And that is exactly what happened when Cheyenne met Phyllis Burchett. They were like kindred spirits from the start!
Prior to launching into photography, Phyllis was a horse trainer and breeding-farm manager. She primarily showed Appaloosas where she won Appaloosa World and National Championships along with several Honor Rolls. She trained horses for my amateur and youth clients who went on to win several titles as well.
After her show career, Phyllis managed an equine breeding farm where she was in charge of all aspects of the Artificial Insemination Program from collection to breeding.
Then, she was bitten by the photography bug, and a severe case of wanderlust, She has traveled the Earth capturing the amazing creatures that inhabit the world with us. And she continues to work one-on-one with clients to create custom artwork that they will treasure for a lifetime.
Cheyenne was fortunate to grow up on her family's working cattle ranch in southeastern Montana. This is where her intense love of horses and cattle began. She also learned to love and respect the land from a very young age. She runs black Angus cattle and raises half-draft horses with her husband and son. Their place is known as the Lazy Six Nine Ranch. Cheyenne is also an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe. She and her family reside and ranch on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. They also spend time in Montana in the Beartooth Mountains.
Cheyenne strives daily to spread positivity and awareness of modern-day ranching. One of her passions is empowering women involved in agriculture to live life at a higher level. She strives to perpetuate the ever-evolving role of women in agriculture through her blog (The Native Cowgirl), public speaking, photography, and social media outlets.
She loves helping rural entrepreneurs level up in what they are passionate about. This includes updating company branding, amplifying social media platforms, increasing website traffic, one-on-one coaching for business/personal growth, etc.
She has been able to build her business from the ground up earning 7-figures in only three years -- in the middle of nowhere.
She always says, "If I can do this, you can too!"
