It is Kay's dedication to hunting and supporting local packs that has secured her a nomination for a Countryside Alliance Award.
Meanwhile Sarah, who is from Moreton-in-Marsh, also documents hunts and has worked with more than 100 packs with her camera.
She says that hunting and photography are her passions in life.
Sarah and Kay were both nominated for the Awards by members of the public.
Countryside Alliance Awards director Jill Grieve said: "Both Kay and Sarah are true rural heroes because they go to great lengths to support and celebrate our countryside, its people and traditions."
The Awards ceremony will take place at the House of Lords on Wednesday March 13.
