What's Included in the session fee?
A Phone Consultation
The best way to get to know each other a bit more is to have a chat over the phone. Having your photograph taken is such an intimate experience, I want you to feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Our consultation call allows me to get to know your story and hear more about your horse! I could talk horses for hours... We will speak about your ideas for the session and you can ask me any questions. If after the consultation you’d like to go ahead, we'll get a date in the diary, decide on the location for your session and I will send you an invoice for the session fee of £99.
Once we have confirmed your booking, you will receive your welcome pack full of advice and tips on how to prepare for your photo session. I understand how nerve wracking it can be to step in front of the camera and that’s before we add your horse into the mix. I have created a guide on how to get yourself, your horse and your location ready for the session. I'm more than happy to help with further advice on outfits, makeup and any other questions you might have. If at any point, you’re unsure on anything, please get in touch, am always here to help.
The Photo Session
Time for the fun part! We will start the session by meeting your horse and do a location scout together, this will help me to get a feel for the location and find the best places for our session. A lot of people are nervous about having their photo taken and are worried about the posing. Don't worry, I've got you covered! Making you look gorgeous and creating beautiful photographs is my area of expertise. Whilst my style is natural and relaxed, I will give you directions and guide you through some poses. Your job is to keep smiling, loving your horse and enjoying your session. The session normally lasts for approx 60-90 minutes, giving us plenty of time for an outfit change as well.
After your session, I take your photographs home and back them up multiple times, ensuring no images are lost. The first step of editing is the selection of the best images, I will take out any unflattering images, think of closed eyes, funny faces, etc. Once that is done, I will go through each image individually and make any fine adjustments, i.e. cropping, straightening, colour correcting and polishing until they’re perfect.
The Big Reveal
Fall in love with your horse and yourself all over again! Approx. 2 weeks after your session, I will send you a link to your very own password protected online gallery. Giving you the opportunity to view your images for the first time and enabling you to choose your favourites from the session
Private Ordering Appointment
Once you have viewed your images, we will arrange your ordering session, where I will visit you and show you my stunning range of product samples. I will help you design and create anything from wall portraits to albums, keeping your budget in mind, so that you are 100 percent happy with the results. Having your ordering appointment at your home gives you the advantage to see what a certain product and wall portrait sizes would look like on your wall. I promise, no hard-selling!
