IT ALL STARTS WITH THE
P L A N N I N G
It's always a good idea to create a vision for your shoot, so when you come to plan your location and outfit, it all has a coherent look. The best way I find to do this, is creating a vision board on Pinterest! If you need any help with this - just give me a shout.
This way we can look over any ideas you have by just pulling up the board on your shoot day. Although please be aware that different light conditions and other daily variables can effect the ambiance of your photos, so it's not always possible to create the EXACT same image - vision boards are more of a guide!
When you book your shoot, you will receive access to my exclusive Client Area, which is specifically designed to walk you through the process and make sure you get the most out of your shoot.
Before you book, you will need to pick out when and where you would like your shoot.. so here are some examples to help you out with that!
PICK YOUR SEASON
every season has something unique to gift us with - whether it be beautiful light, pretty flowers, or fallen leaves..
Contrary to what you might think, winter is a MAGICAL time of year for photos - those crisp, frosty mornings are gorgeous to photograph.
During the winter months the sun is low in the sky, creating some of the most BEAUTIFUL and soft light, giving that dreamy effect to your photos.
With the short days, it's PERFECT for sunrise and sunset shoots too. Just imagine a crisp sunrise shoot at the beach!
If it's a snowy day shoot you're after - contact me early to join my snowy day waiting list, so when the snow does come, we're ready to go!
SELECT A LOCATION
here are some top picks - once you've booked your shoot, the Client Area will fill you in with more tips on what to look for in your location
If you don't have transport, I can come to you! In fact, many of my shoots will take place on your yard.. here your horses will likely be most settled as they already know their surroundings.
Even if your yard doesn't appear the most scenic, with a bit of creative thinking there are ALWAYS photo opportunities! Check with your yard owner or local farmers for special permission to use surrounding tracks and fields on your shoot day.
However, if you are looking for an adventure and happy to travel - check out my favorite location suggestions below..
WOODS, PARKS, LAKES AND NATURE RESERVES
A few popular picks include
PLESSEY WOODS | HUMFORD WOODS | ATTLEE PARK | QE II LAKE | HAVANNAH NATURE RESERVE | THRUNTON WOODS
These locations are great because they offer us shelter from the wind and shade from the bright sun - PERFECT all year round!
With logs, gates, trees, flowers, water and long tracks giving us unlimited natural props and backdrops, the photo opportunities are ENDLESS, meaning we can really get creative!
Many of my beach photos are taken at Seaton Sluice, however I can travel to any beach near you!
Like the woods and nature reserves, the beach is GORGEOUS all year round!
Perfect for that sunrise shoot, atmospheric misty mornings, and long summer days splashing in the waves - this has to be a favourite of mine!!
whether you're after a portrait, at liberty or lifestyle session - there are packages to suit everyone! For more details, just get in touch
