Taking Your Images Was The Exciting First Step... Now, How Would You Like To Show Them Off ?
In as much as all of our equine journeys are unique
there lies a common thread that draws us all together ...
Weather you ride English, Western, Gaited, or even have a very special Harness Horse that you enjoy for pleasure or show, I love to create beautiful portrait and lifestyle images that show your horse and genre in a way that is heartfelt and meaningful to you personally.
We will choose a location, (locations more than 40 miles from Mount Vernon will have an additional travel fee ).
We will decide what type of images you would like, what type of tack, wardrobe and backgrounds appeal to you.
On the day of the shoot we want both you and your favorite steed to look your very best so have yourself and your horse groomed to the nines and your tack cleaned and polished!
Typically the shoot will last about 3-4 hours and will take place in the early morning or early evening which will produce superior light.
Images will include Portrait, Action, and Lifestyle. Some will be taken with tack and some without. We can photograph your horse working at liberty, running free or working under saddle whatever is your preference.
I have these beautiful images of my own horse Noble, and it brings me great joy to see him displayed in many ways throughout my home.
Today's home decore trend of large Equine Wall Art is fabulous, made even better by the fact that we can make it deeply personal to you, by creating it of your very own horse.
The options available are staggering and so much fun to shop for and create together !

The session may include 1-2 dogs or if you have a larger pack we are happy to accommodate them as well by photographing them in an extended or separate session.
Through a combination of candid action shots and some slightly more posed for portrait's you will end up with a collection of beautiful authentic images that you will treasure and be proud to display in your home and living spaces.
My "natural lifestyle approach" to photography is to engage your dog in the fun playful activities that they love the most! The relaxed nature of this type of session brings out the true spirit of your dog and also allows us to get some great "in the moment" candid shots!
We want your dog to look their very best on the day of the session! It is recommended that you bathe your dog or have them professionally groomed the day before we take your images.
No worries if your buddy gets a little nervous or distracted in front of the camera, we will take all the time we need to build your dog's confidence in the surroundings and put them at ease, it's going to be a fun and entertaining experience that will keep us all smiling while your dog shows off for the camera!
We keep most all dogs safely on a leash throughout the session, today's editing tools are a wonder at removing collars and leashes! Or if your dog is rocking that sporty or fancy bling collar we can leave it in the image to!
If you have an off leash trained dog, awesome...we can utilize all that freedom!
Typically the session will last 1 to 2 hours and we will change locations within our chosen destination to take advantage of unique and beautiful lighting and backdrops.
We are photographing with the beauty of natural light so keep in mind mornings and early evening sessions are going to be the best time to take images that make your dog shine!
In the case of overcast stormy days we will want to reschedule the session.

THE EQUINE SESSION
Canine And Equine Images
It's no secret that a Black and White image can have a drama, elegance, and unexpected beauty all it's own.
Horses and dogs are the perfect subject to capture the impact and play of light when artfully done in Black and White.
Starting this journey back in the days of film I spent a lot of time taking images and developing them in Black and White.
I'm still enamored today with their impact and complex simplicity.
Today with digital processing the whole Greyscale Genre has expanded from the original idea of Black and White to include cream toned and sepia toned to name just a couple.
Included in every session I will present you with about 10% of your beautiful images done in Greyscale so you can experience the drama and perfection of it for yourself.
The timeless beauty of Greyscale images is so on trend and has taken the recent Home Décor Industry by a storm. I'm confident you will find a special niche in your living spaces to proudly display a stunning Gallery Framed Print or Canvas of your beloved companion done in this manner.
It's Easy To Choose A Session!
100% of your session fee is given to you as a product credit to spend at your ordering appointment on anything you wish.
Note: Each session has a different number of digitally enhanced fully edited images that you will be shown at your viewing ordering session.
