After my second shoot with Laura, she decided a photo shoot would be a lovely gift for her riding buddie, Helen. Helen contacted me to book a date and we had such a beautiful day for it. When I arrived on the yard, it was clear who my victims were – both Helen and her lovely boy Alfie were all scrubbed up.
Helen told me how she bought Alfie two years ago with hopes to event. They have been competing in dressage so far and are working their way towards adding in the fences as they grow as a team! All plaited up for the shoot, he looked ever so handsome and had so much presence about him. We began the shoot in the barn doorway where we captured some black background shots, in which his chestnut coat really popped!
We made our way out the barn and down the track where there were views for miles, really lending itself to some photo opportunities. We had brick walls, pretty country lanes and beautiful wild flowers. Helen even came prepared with an outfit change, so we had a lovely contrast between her smart show attire, and her casual jeans and shirt. All of these gave variety to the photos – how Helen is going to pick out a favourite I do not know.
Thank you for introducing me to your lovely boy, he was a pleasure to have in front of the camera, as were you! I hope you are enjoying looking through your gallery.
