Equine Portrait Photoshoot
An equine photo shoot lasts between 90 minutes and 2 hours. This time allows for any outfit changes you may wish as well as portrait photos, black background and liberty photos. An equine photo shoot also allows you to have more than one horse photographed if you are lucky enough to own more than one! Other members of the family (including 4 legged!) can also be photographed with the horse during the shoot.
Photographs from the shoot will be edited and displayed online for you to order. There are a variety of different sizes and types of print including: mounted, or canvas.

A gift voucher is the most perfect, thoughtful gift. The shoot day itself will be very exciting, not something they will likely have experience before. However, unlike a lot of gifts, a photoshoot is truly timeless! The images will capture lasting memories which will be proudly displayed forever. A specific date, such as a Birthday, can be chosen when purchasing a voucher, or it can be left to the recipient to decide - the vouchers are valid for one year.
Gift vouchers will be printed with a blank space for you to add your own message. Each one will comes with an envelope ready to brighten up someone's special day.
What To Expect
I will arrive at the location of your choice at the agreed time. I will introduce myself to you and your horses. Prior to the photoshoot I will ask you to fill out a short “Getting to Know You” form in which we discuss any particular shots you have in mind. Your horse should be clean and pampered before my arrival. Firstly, I will have a little look around the surroundings to consider the backgrounds and where best to begin.
I recommend different outfits to add variation to the photo shoot; find something that you are comfortable wearing. If you want help deciding what to wear, feel free to drop me a message. Bring along more than you need to and I'll help you put an outfit together! More information about preparing for your shoot will be sent to you, in more detail, at the time of booking.
I have experienced many different situations - some animals love to pose for the camera whilst others will fidget! I want to make each and every shoot enjoyable for everyone I have the pleasure of photographing for. Don't panic if your horse keeps snatching the grass or doesn't like that tree I want him to pose under, relax! My pockets come packed with polos and treats as well as rustly packets/squeaky toys in order to get their attention and ears forward. Each photoshoot is bespoke to each and every one of you: I wouldn't ask you to canter/gallop or jump if you did not want too. You are my customer and I want you to feel relaxed and enjoy your shoot!
The "Great British Weather" - or not so great at times! We can't predict the weather in advance and a miserable, rainy day will put a damper on your photo session. In the event of horrible weather/flooding or snow your photoshoot may be cancelled and re-scheduled. Photo shoots will go ahead if it is cloudy! If necessary I will contact you as early as possible to postpone the photographs to another time.
Ideally you should be able to bring an extra pair of hands along to the shoot to assist in holding your horse when necessary, as well as helping me keep their attention and their ears forward.
Absolutely delighted with the beautiful photos Rose took of my very naughty horse and not especially cooperative children! Completely natural shots, Rose managed to shoot exactly the style I asked for. I actually think they look much nicer than other photographers' work I've seen at 5x the price! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rose.
Get your whole yard or whole family involved in a fantastic day! If there are 3-5 of you at the same location you can book a "Yard Day Shoot". I will photograph you all individually for an hour and display your images in your own gallery.
If you are located outside my free travel "zone," a group booking will split the travel expenses between you all, making the shoot even better value for money!
Work together to get your horses gleaming and beautiful; help eachother out choosing outfits and getting hair styled; experience eachothers shoot helping hold horses and creating a natural atmosphere.
