Horse Photography Session Details & Pricing

As a horse owner myself, I know the time, hard work and dedication that it takes to form an incredible bond with your horse and understand the love you have for your horse is a feeling that mere words can never describe. That connection you have with your horse is unique and you deserve your portrait experience to reflect that.

Let’s tell your special love story with a custom experience that creates tangible memories and beautiful art you will treasure forever.

4 Simple Steps to Meaningful Art You Will Love

Step 1

Get started!

You can either book an obligation free phone call to chat about your dream photoshoot ideas and make sure we are a good fit or you can go ahead and book your session online right now.  

I’ll send you the session agreement, questionairre and comprehensive Client Guides with all the details including what to wear and how to prepare so you get the most from your session.  

We’ll book a pre-session call to find out your goals for the session, discuss the images that are most important to you and what you plan to do with them so that we plan the perfect session for you.

Step 2

The fun part! 

Your session will be a fun and stress free experience at your favourite location.

I will gently guide you the whole way with authentic, flattering posing to create gorgeous, natural photographs of you both  looking your beautiful best!

For studio sessions, I will take as much time as needed to make sure your horse is comfortable with the equipment before we start. 

After the session I’ll show you samples of the exquisite products available for your finished art.

Step 3

The exciting part! 

Two weeks later we’ll get together in person or online for your ordering & design appointment. 

You’ll get to see your photographs, select your favourites and I’ll help you design the custom heirloom artwork that best suits your taste and your home.

I use specialised software to remove the guesswork so you can see exactly how your art will look to scale on the walls of your home or in the album you choose.

Payment can be be made by credit card or direct deposit and payment plans are available for your convenience. 

Step 4

Delivery Day!

Your custom art collection will be ready 6-8 weeks later and I will be in touch to arrange delivery. 

All artwork arrives ready to display or hang straight on your walls so that you can enjoy them immediately.

All art products are heirloom quality and come with 30-75 year guarantees so that you know they will look as beautiful decades from now as they do today.

Fine Art Black Background sessions

I bring my portable studio equipment to your property and spend as much time as your horse needs to get used to the equipment before we begin. 

Studio lighting creates the most beautiful, dramatic portraits, however black background photographs can also be created using only natural light in undercover areas such as arena, stable block, breezeway or large shed.  

More info on the three ways black background portraits can be created.

Specialised Studio lighting can be included with outdoor lifestyle session for $100.
