Lesley and Donna both purchased photo shoot vouchers last Christmas for their daughters Laura and Jordan after seeing some of my photos online. They picked their date in July and spent the run up to the shoot checking out the client area of my website for ideas and inspiration. They were all extremely well prepared for the day and had clearly been practicing their best poses!
After a morning spent bathing and scrubbing, we began with Laura and Lesley’s shoot. Laura introduced me to her gorgeous boy, Paddy, who is an 10 year old coloured cob. Laura and Lesley share Paddy and have owned him since he was 4 years old. They told me how he was Laura’s first horse after leaving the riding school, and the time has just flown by! They enjoy hacking mostly, but do take part in the odd local show. Paddy’s favourite thing to do it a bit of Cross Country – which he finds super exciting!
Paddy is such a poppet and nothing was too much bother, he happily stood and posed with his pricky little ears and looked adorable (even with the odd blade of grass hanging from his mouth between snacks)! Laura and Lesley have such a gorgeous relationship and were so in sync! We spent some time capturing some group shots of the two of them with the golden boy, and we had a good laugh throughout! After capturing the in hand bonding photos, we made our way to the school to round up the shoot with some pictures of Paddy at liberty before Donna and Jordan’s turn modelling.
Thank you for inviting me to photograph for you – I had a wonderful morning meeting you all and look forward to a return visit to capture some more ridden photos!
