The Four Stages to a Bespoke Equine Portrait Session
I like to think of the photo session as having 4 distinct elements to it
The Brief - The brief is where we work together to plan your session. We will meet up via Zoom, on the phone or if possible in person to get to know each other better and more specifically for me to fully understand what you want from this session. I can talk you though ideas for styling, session what works best to show both you and your horse off. After this session and once the deposit has been paid you will receive a fabulous welcome pack from me.
The Session - The day will be relaxing and fun. We will spend sometime together looking around your chosen location and I will choose those perfect spots for photographs. The session is planned to be around 2 hours however it is important for me to ensure that I absolutely delivery the brief that we discussed previously and if we run over a little to do this then it doesn't matter. As we progress the session try and relax with your horse and the posing will come naturally even if at first it feels awkward. I will guide you into poses that enhance the special connection between you both. This connection will enhance your natural smile so that it isn't forced. In addition I will be taking candid images through the sessions for the very special moments that can never be posed. If required there will be opportunities for 2-3 changes of clothes that suit the season and the locations - a detailed styling guide is contained in the welcome pack and you can check back on this blog for more tips. Its always helpful on the day to have someone with you who can help you with clothing changes and wave their arms/make funny noises/rattle a bucket to keep your horses attention - also treats are always welcome at the end of a session. The session is designed to be fun and relaxing to make the experience as special as it can be for you - Don't forget to give yourself some time and space on the day to take it all in and create those fabulous memories.
The Viewing - After the session I will review all of the images we captured on the day - I will choose and edit those images that deliver the brief and upload them into a private viewing gallery. We will arrange to spend some time together is I can take you through the images and you can choose your favourite image for the frame.
The Memory - A stunning 16" framed print of your favourite image, in a variety of colours to match your home. In addition there are options to purchase a range of extras.
