If you're looking for the perfect way to showcase your horse, a black background portrait session is the way to go! The sleek, elegant look of a black background brings out the natural beauty in every horse. Each session includes multiple poses, from headshots, to full body, to more artistic angles. Each photo is hand-edited with meticulous attention to detail in order to highlight your horse's best features. Large size prints and wall art make a stunning addition to your home décor. These photos are also great for sale ads.
Up to 30 minute session

Your horse should be prepared as they would for a show; clean, with bright whites and no stains. If clipping, be sure to do so a week or two ahead of time so no clipper lines are visible. Clipped legs and bridle path make for a tidy appearance but ears and muzzle can be at your preference.
This will depend on your personal preference, but whichever you choose, make sure it is cleaned and oiled. If you use a halter, it should be leather with a leather lead rope with a chain. I also have a photography halter, which is a simple rope halter that can be edited out later if you would like the look of a naked face.
Braiding is highly recommended, but not required. If you opt to not braid, I ask that your horse's mane at least be neat and tidy. Long, flowy manes are also ok!
I encourage you to bring a friend so that one person can hold the horse while the other is free to help get the horse's ears up. It is also handy to bring hoof polish, a towel to wipe their muzzle, their favorite treats, and anything that can help get the horse's attention.
