How should I prepare for my horse and rider session?
The camera shows everything, so I usually recommend clients do their hair and wear some makeup. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but you’ll have these photos for a long time and should like the way you look! A manicure is also a good idea, and if you’re wearing sandals, so is a pedi.
How soon will I see my photos?
All clients will receive their fully edited galleries within 30 days of the shoot. I will usually send a few sneak peeks within the first few days following your session.
I’m ready to book. How do I pay?
I will send you an invoice and contract through 17hats. A 50% deposit is due before your session to ensure a spot in my schedule. The remaining 50% is due on the day of the shoot.
What should I wear?
Neutral colors like black, white, navy, tan, or grey are never a bad idea. Make sure your outfit compliments your horse’s coloring. Depending on what package you’ve chosen, feel free to bring lots of outfit options to your shoot so we can discuss together!
When do your shoots typically take place?
I am a natural light photographer, so my sessions are scheduled according to the sunset. Shoots are typically scheduled for the late afternoon or early evening, depending on the season. Morning light is also quite beautiful, so if you’re an early bird, we can schedule something close to sunrise, too!
How should I prepare my horse?
Horses should be turned out as they would be at a show: hooves painted, whites scrubbed, and coats shiny. Bridles and/or halters should be clean. Manes and tails should be brushed, and depending on the season, fly spray should be applied and kept handy during the shoot.
What if I don’t live in Indiana?
That’s okay! I am available to travel and am constantly on the road for horse shows. Send me a message with your location and I’ll see what I can do!
