Hannah and Hollie had been gifted photo shoot vouchers for Christmas from their mum, Lynne. Lynne had warned me of their extensive four legged family, and when I arrived on their yard at Hedley Hill, I wasn’t disappointed! All ponies had been scrubbed and were sparkling clean too – there must have been some serious elbow grease put in!
We began the shoot in their field shelter, capturing some shots for those very popular studio-like black background photos. Solo and Hannah were up first – Solo was particularly well behaved and absolutely gorgeous! We then made our way round to a quiet little grassy paddock by the stable block which was perfect for some more posed shots of the girls bonding!
Next up Hannah brought out Alfie, who she has owned for about a year and goes to PC activities with. They are planning to go to camp this year and had been practicing their Cross Country the day before our shoot. Hannah spent the majority of time with Alfie getting those precious bonding shots, but ended with some mounted too, before heading off to get her next pony in line, Foxy!
Foxy was an absolute gem to photograph – he was any mum’s dream pony. Both Hannah and Hollie hopped on board, sat down next to, climbed over, and crawled around Foxy and he was just loving all the attention! Blue, Hollie’s little pony who was making a short visit from her loan home to join in the shoot, came over for some family photos with the girls too – she was equally obliging and we had a lot of fun capturing lots of cuddly photos with her to wrap up the shoot!
Thank you ever so much for organising such a fun day – it was lovely meeting your four legged family!
