I’ll help create
stand-out, story-driven images
that capture the love you have for your horse.

It's time to get photos that feel authentic.


Hey there, I'm Kelly, a San Diego, California native, who grew up on tacos and surfing at La Jolla Shores. I now call Abu Dhabi home, a place I have grown to love over the last five (hot) years. 

What I discovered through my own experience is that horse owners want photos, but we're always sweaty and covered in snot. We tend to take a random selfie...but unfortunately we sometimes end up looking like our horse. 

Let's get you some beautiful photos, exchange funny stories about how our horses almost maimed us, and chat about our favorite saddle pads.

I can't wait to meet you and your horse!

-I use an excessive amount of exclamation marks in professional emails!!!!

-Because then my in-laws would have to acknowledge photography is a real job.

-I'm socially awkward because I spend 90% of my time with horses and barn cats (see photo below).

Reasons not to hire me...

When you look back at your photos, I want you to close your eyes and be transported back in time.

I want you to feel the freedom, the sun beating down on your face when you're canter around an arena, the friends you made, and love you have for your horse...over and over.

Genuine connection matters. 
The memories you make matter.
Love matters.

This is what I do differently.

My goal is to capture authentic love and emotion, NOT perfection (because we know horse life is never perfect).

How is this experience different?

Black background portraits are one of my favorites to shoot. They are dramatic, timeless, and make the best fine art pieces. This image can be of your horse alone, or of you and your horse together. 

Black background portraits

These shots are of you doing what you do best, riding! I will simply take photos of you tacking up, walking your horse, training, and everything in between. 

Horse + rider sessions

These are some of the most adorable sessions! We dress up your favorite pony and dress in a magical dress, and take some glowy shots. 

It's a literal fairytale come true!

Unicorn sessions

Jumping and dressage training sessions are so fun to photograph! We will get the best action shots from close ups to you flying over jumps! 

Jumping and dressage

You can book competition coverage which includes tacking up, the warm up arena, the competition, all the way to awards! We will capture all the action and some! 

Competition coverage

If you know that your soulmate may not be here much longer, please contact me for a discounted session. I want to capture your love in a way that will carry you through loss.

types of sessions–

It's time you have photos + video you love just as much as your horse.


The session will last about two hours depending on the images you want, and will be taken at your desired location! This is the fun part and I promise to get you images you absolutely love! 

The session

A 50% deposit is due when you book. This reserves your date in my calendar! If for any reason you need to cancel, tell me as soon as possible. There is a 250aed non-refundable fee, unless I can rebook that day, in which case I will refund the entire amount. 

I will send over a contract that you can read and sign electronically, and we'll be all set. 

payment and contract

If you want to book a session, the sooner the better! My weekends and evenings tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially between November and May because of the cooler weather in the UAE, so the sooner you reach out to me, the more likely you are to get your desired date!

The Process

Image delivery

I aim to deliver photos to you between 7-10 days (but if I'm honest, it will probably be sooner because I can't help but edit right away)! 

Book a session

I'm only booking 25 sessions in 2022, so make sure to get on the calendar before they are all gone! 

I can't wait to work with you!
