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 wherever we can find green (which can be kinda tough in the UAE sometimes)! 

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–

After photographing hundreds of portrait sessions over the past few years, I've found that I'm not the perfect fit for every equestrian. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything—where you found your horse, funny riding stories, and how things are going now on your journey.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your vision, answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

LET's CONNECT

I am willing to travel throughout Abu Dhabi to anyone of the beautiful stables located here. For an additional fee, I'm happy to travel throughout the UAE. Contact me for pricing.

I primarily do sessions at:
Al Forsan International Sports Resort
The Royal Stables
Mandara Equestrian
Abu Dhabi Equestrian 

LOCATIONs

Sessions range from about one to two hours depending on what type of shots we want to achieve. I'll meet you at the stable, discuss your vision, snuggle and obsess over your horse and learn how they feel about my camera.

After the session, I will race home and edit a few photos for you because I simply can't help myself!  

What to expect

Don't worry about getting your horse to cooperate, that's my job. I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve in order to get them to pay attention and get those pretty forward ears we all love. 

The SEssion

All images from our sessions are typically delivered within about 7-10 days of the shoot date via an online gallery. This gallery will allow you to share your favorites with family, and even download images to share on social media. 

Your gallery will remain active for six weeks. 

DELIVERY

I am proud to offer our clients a variety of ways to turn their images into keepsakes. Wall-mounted canvas prints to decorate your home, beautiful handmade albums and more. 

I order these from professional labs in the United States, so they take anywhere from 8-10 weeks, but are well worth the wait. Contact me for pricing.

KEEPSAKES

WHAT TO EXPECT –

The sooner the better! My weekends and evenings tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall because of the cooler weather, so the sooner you reach out to me, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  

To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, I take photos for a living, and I even feel like a deer in the headlights when I'm in front of the camera. No really, look at my instagram.

You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and I coach you through posing, and I think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your horse, I'm well versed in capturing even the busiest of minds. 

I'm Awkward and my horse is crazy.

I really hope that doesn't happen, but for whatever reason, if you're not happy with your images, we will work together to find a solution. Horse and people can have off days, so sometimes not everything goes as planned. No matter what, I want you to have images you're happy with! 

WHAT IF I'm not happy with my photos?

Within 7-10 days of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

All galleries are password protected, meaning no one else will be able to see your images except you and who you share the link with. 

It's very important to me that my clients maintain their privacy.

FIND INSPIRATION

If you're looking for a little more outfit inspiration, we recommend heading over to my Pinterest boards to browse outfit ideas for you and your horse. 

FIND INSPIRATION

With the growth of online equestrian shops, shopping for your horse is more fun than ever! We recommend choosing color families (neutrals, blues, etc) over perfectly matching outfits. 

It's ok, I'm giving you permission to BUY ALL THE SADDLE PADS, I won't tell.

For the horse

When picking outfits we recommend keeping in mind the word “complement” rather than “match.” For example, if you are wearing teal and black, you'll want to use a jewel toned saddle pad. It can also be a great idea to choose “color-families,” such as pastels or rich tones.
