I have been really looking forward to sharing with you my shoot with Eileen and Blue! Eileen had gifted a shoot to her daughter Abi last year which we had a lot of fun during, so this year Abi wanted to return the favour for her mum. Blue is my horse’s very adorable field buddy and partner in crime. He is a 17 year old cob who has been semi-retired for many years, but in the lead up to his shoot, Eileen hogged, clipped, de-feathered and bathed him which took 10 years off him instantly – he looked wonderful!
We began our shoot on the yard using the shade from the barn doorway to capture some artistic black background images. He stood beautifully where we asked him without any tack – and there was nothing he wouldn’t do for a polo! Then we made our way across the yard to the pond for a more natural looking backdrop. The daisies provided the most beautiful setting and Eileen and Blue looked so sweet together in them!
Eileen had brought three tops to change between during her shoot; a stripy polo, a summery bardot and a beautiful blue floral shirt to end with. Along with the different backdrops we used throughout the shoot, the outfit changes gave us a lovely variety to the photos. Eileen and Blue have a gorgeous bond and everything came so naturally to them in front of the camera, so we were able to capture some really beautiful moments.
I had a lovely time with you in front of the camera and I hope these photos with your special boy give you something to treasure for many years to come!
