How adorable are these guys please?
I was invited to meet Roxy, her boyfriend Chris, and their four-legged family at their yard in Backworth on a beautiful sunny evening in July. When I arrived, it was clear who my culprits were, both horses were freshly clipped and bathed to perfection. Roxy was there to greet me (looking equally as well groomed!) and introduced me to Red and Dancer.
Dancer is Roxy’s 18-year-old Cleveland Bay x – shes owned Dancer for 7 years and has many many happy memories out and about hacking. When he first came to her, he was called Prancer, which says it all! Three-year-old Red, Chris’ American Miniature, is a newer addition to the four-legged family. Chris has been showing Red who has been doing very well and is on his way to some Championships very soon – how exciting!
We began the shoot using the dark stable doorway to create those very popular black background images, before making our way down the lane for some more natural out and about photos. Both horses, Roxy and Chris were a pleasure to have in front of the camera and all made for some gorgeous family portraits!! Roxy hopped on board for some mounted shots before we rounded up the shoot by getting the dogs in a handful of group shots.
Thank you for giving me the responsibility of capturing your four-legged family – it was an absolute pleasure. Hope you like your photos!
