We had a gorgeous, sunny day for Abi’s shoot with Glentress – AKA Tess. She had been gifted a photo shoot voucher for her Birthday last year by her mum, and while the sun was shining, decided now was the perfect time to claim it. Abi is stabled at Lane Farm and we decided the fields up the track would be the perfect place for our photos at this time of year. The long grass, bushes and full up trees provide a very scenic back drop!
Tess is 8 years old and Abi has owned her since the age of 5. In that time they have worked their way up the levels at unaffiliated competitons, proving to be very successful in all spheres. Tess has paces to die for – she’s very elevated in her stride and glides round the dressage arena, while she’s equally as talented round a course of jumps, with scope to burn and a big bold jump! They are aiming to event in the near future – which I think will be a breeze for the two of them.
Abi and Lauren had spent the morning bathing, grooming and plaiting Tess for the shoot. She has the most beautiful golden glow to her coat which just ‘popped’ against the green of the surroundings, but also shone from the dark barn where we captured some studio-like black background images. Dressed in her show attire, with a lace, navy competition shirt and smart white jods – Abi really looked the part too. She has such gorgeous long, shiny hair that was blowing so elegantly in the breeze. Abi was a natural model and looked wonderful in front of the camera, making my job very easy, while Tess played up to the on looking boys in the field next door!
Thank you for a fun morning at the farm, and thank you Lauren for all your help behind the scenes, I hope we have now got the creative juices flowing for your shoot with Jack!
