Here’s why you’ll wish you hadn’t waited for beautiful portraits of you and your horse


I’m often surprised by people’s regret at not having done an equine photo shoot far sooner than they actually did. It seems to be a common thread which got me thinking about why they delay having one. I know that having a portrait session with your horse is an investment. But I do believe there are many more reasons to have a portrait shoot than not! Here are my top 5 reasons to book a photo shoot with your horse today and how you can get booked in.


1: Celebrating a Friendship

Has anyone ever not described their horse as their best friend? I’m betting no! Your horse is not only your best friend, they’re also a part of your family. Isn’t that a relationship worth celebrating? A photo shoot is a perfect way to celebrate that friendship. So, if for no other reason, do it because you really, really love your horse!

2: A Fun Experience


If #1 wasn’t reason enough, then perhaps this will persuade you. Because, despite your nerves, I guarantee you’ll remember your shoot, once over, as the fun experience it really is. I do everything in my power to make it a fun, happy experience for you and your horse. So you can be reassured that an equine photo shoot is something to look forward to. The planning, getting ready and spending some dedicated time with your best friend all amounts to an experience you’ll remember every time you look at your beautiful photographs from the session.

3: Self-Care and Empowerment


There is nothing more important than looking after yourself. A little self-care goes a long way towards helping you to feel good and confident about yourself. I cannot stress this point enough. Stunning professional photographs of you and your horse will show how beautiful you both are, inside and out. And I know that will make you feel good about yourself, which is a great reason to book a shoot!

If your photographs help you to feel more confident, your personality will shine from within for everyone to see. What I’m saying is, a portrait session with your horse is as good as, if not better than a spa treatment!

4: Preserving Memories


No one likes to bring the mood down, but we do need to discuss the sad fact that there will come a time when your beautiful best friend will no longer be around. I know it’s not something any of us want to think about. But having gorgeous photos of your horse will go a long way to helping to preserve their memory. I know I love looking at photographs of family members and friends who are no longer with us. It always sparks a nostalgic trip down memory lane, where we remember and talk about all the happy and fun moments we shared. I don’t know about you, but that is worth so much all by itself. Memories are the best reason to make an investment, don’t you think?

5: Beautiful Prints


When you’ve invested in a portrait shoot with your four-legged friend, it’s hardly worth mentioning that you should have your stunning photos printed and put on display! A beautiful print of you and your horse will look amazing on your wall. It’ll be a real centrepiece and will, no doubt, catch the eyes and hearts of everyone who comes into your home and sees it. And I promise you, one fantastic quality photograph on your wall or mantle will outweigh the hundreds of much lower quality images on your phone. 


Share your photos, frame them and display them in high-quality albums. And if you’re looking for more inspiration on what to do with your gorgeous equine photographs after the portrait shoot is over, you should hit the link!
