Horse Portraits - Your Questions Answered

Hey there, fellow horse enthusiasts!

Are you ready to capture the beauty and majesty of your equine companions in stunning portraits?



Whether you're showcasing your stallion, celebrating a new foal, or simply want some gorgeous photos of your four-legged friend, I've got all the answers to your burning questions about horse portraits!

Q: What time of year is best for photos?

A: While summer may be prime time for showcasing your horse's glossy coat, every season offers its own unique charm! Winter photos with a snowy backdrop can be absolutely magical, while spring and fall bring their own special allure. No matter the season, we'll capture your horse's beauty in every shot!



Q: Does my horse need to be clipped prior to the session?

A: Nope, not at all! Your horse is perfect just the way they are. Whether they're sporting a natural coat or a freshly clipped look, we'll capture their essence in all its glory. If you do opt for clipping, a couple of weeks beforehand is ideal to let their coat rehydrate and look its best. But don't worry - we'll make sure they look fabulous either way!



Q: What type of location is best for the photo session?

A: While not everyone has access to sprawling pastures with breathtaking backdrops, any location can become the perfect setting for your horse's portraits! Whether it's a quiet field, a rustic barn, or a secluded spot surrounded by nature, we'll find the perfect backdrop to showcase your horse's beauty. And don't worry - we'll handle all the details to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone involved!



Q: Can I be in some of the photos with my horse?

A: Absolutely! There's nothing quite like capturing the special bond between you and your equine companion. Just make sure to dress in colors that complement your horse's coat and avoid white to keep things looking sharp. Get ready to strike a pose and create some unforgettable memories together!


Q: What does a portrait or video session cost?

A: I offer a variety of session options to suit your needs. Pricing varies, so feel free to reach out for more information and to discuss your specific needs. Plus, discounts are available for farm shoots - so let's make some magic happen!
