OUR 1ST BIRTHDAY MASSIVE $2,500 GIVEAWAY

FOR YOU & YOUR SPECIAL HORSE

PORTRAITS

In a world full of chaos and noise, there exists a bond that transcends words and defies explanation. It’s a connection woven with threads of trust, loyalty, and an unspoken language. Moments of pure harmony, where time seems to stand still. The way we communicate through touch, through the brush of a hand against a velvety nose, and the soft whispers of encouragement that only they can hear. It’s a language that surpasses any language we humans know.

Together, we navigate life’s obstacles, finding solace in each other’s presence, and creating moments of pure magic that words alone can never capture. It’s a bond that can only be described as extraordinary, a connection that reminds us of the profound beauty that can exist when we open our hearts to the horses who share this world with us.

This is where the magic is.

WHAT I OFFER

TYPES OF PORTRAITS

FINE ART PORTRAITS

My Fine Art Portraits are designed to capture the essence of your horse, the one who embodies your dreams, devotion, and has influenced your life in countless ways. I’ll showcase your horse’s build and beauty through classic poses, but will also aim to bring out their natural expressions and unique personality.

STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY: Your horse (and you if you choose) will be photographed in a Fine Art style in a studio setting. I use a mixture of natural light and sometimes add artificial lighting if need be. The backgrounds are generally black, white or a textured style to suit your horse.

HORSE & RIDER PORTRAITS

The bond between Horse & Rider is something truly special and rare, something that deserves to be cherished and preserved for a lifetime. Your bond with your horse is truly unique and that’s where I come in. I’ll capture this chapter of your equestrian story in a truly intimate and meaningful way.

STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY: You and your horse will be photographed in your chosen location. I will use natural light only and will choose 3 area’s to concentrate on within your location (if there’s availability). I will guide you both through every step and assist you with posing so you won’t feel awkward.

I DONT KNOW HOW YOUR BRAIN WORKS
