I’ll Guide Your Experience

What better way to celebrate the partnership you have with your horse, than than with photographs that truly express it?

I've been lucky enough to know many special horses, and my only regret is that I don't have more photos of them.

That's why I do what I do: creating images of humans and their horses that immortalize the relationships between them.

The process

01.

Mockup of framed black and white horsehead portrait.

Consultation & session prep

We chat over the phone or a video call so we can get acquainted, and I can learn your wants and needs and design a photosession that's just right for you. You'll receive a welcome guide with helpful tips to prepare.

02.

Day of your session

We'll meet at your chosen location and spend some time together while I create some amazing photographs for you. I'll provide some open-ended prompts so you'll know what to do and how to direct your horse. I always encourage natural interactions! Sometimes the in-between moments are the best ones--I'm always ready to capture those too.

03.

Your Gallery goes live

I hand-edit every single image I deliver, which means turnaround time is usually around 2 weeks. Once they're finished, the link to your personal gallery will arrive in your email. This gallery will allow you to browse your images, download right to your device, and choose your favorites for additional professional quality prints.

04.

Prints delivered to your door

I'll help you pick out any additional images that you'd like printed. Then, I take care of the rest! That means I place the order, check them over for quality, wrap them up, and mail them. All you have to do is wait for your gorgeous package to come to you!

artistic edits

Artistic edits include solid color background replacement (black, white, or a complementary color), as well as other enhancements like clip art. Solid color background images are easily done in a clean barn aisle or indoor arena, and can often be included as part of your photosession. Contact me for a custom quote if you'd like to book a session just for this type of image.

request something special

Riders competing at local shows in the Miami Valley can take advantage of my all-inclusive show photography coverage. I'll document everything that goes into the show day: the whole behind-the-scenes experience that goes into presenting you and your horse at your very best, plus your time in the ring or on course.

These photographs are taken in a photo-journalistic style that tells the story of your day. Rather than recording every single movement, I focus on moments of partnership and beauty.
