HORSE photography

Horses & Pets

I owned my first horse in the mid 1980s, when I was 12. His name was Chief Yankee King and he was a registered Appaloosa gelding-Sorrel with only one spot on his withers.

Being a horse photographer and loving all things about Horses just seemed natural after that. Since the mid 80s, I've owned several horses and even part of a Dairy Farm, yes, milk cows! 

Now, I live vicariously through my equestrian clients. I cannot tell you the excitement I feel when I get a call from a horse owner. It is THE BEST time ever photographing horses. And all of you are so fortunate to own them.

I can spend all day, every day with them: Feeding, grooming, cleaning, buying tack or just hanging out and telling them all my worldly problems. I miss it. 

So, I photograph them. That's what I do and what I absolutely love: winter, spring, summer, fall. It does not matter the time of year or if it's raining or sunny. You get the idea.

 

I LOVE that you are here and interested in equestrian session with me - I absolutely cannot to meet you and your horse! Read through the information below and if you have any questions at all, just email me at contact@jlrportraitstudio.com

SESSION INFO

If you've read the above, you can imagine I have no time limit when it comes to creating beautiful images for you. You may have to let me know when to stop :) (but really)

I capture you and I capture your horse. Lifestyle and posed portraits are what I am after. I also take video. 

A $500 deposit is required upon scheduling your session. A portion of that fee is for my creative fee, travel (if within an hour from 54889), and the remainder is used as an Art credit towards gorgeous wall Art, an album, or a custom portrait box. 

HOW THE SESSION WORKS

  • A phone call, ZOOM, or in-person meeting will happen first and we will answer all of your questions and schedule your session. 

  • Next, at your session, you and your horse enjoy a casual, very fun, sometimes goofy portrait session with me.

  • Last, we'll schedule a viewing and ordering meeting. You'll come to the studio, or I'll meet you at your home if you prefer, and we will watch your video and enjoy all of your wonderful images one by one.

  • You'll choose which images you LOVE, and then I will help you determine what Art, or album, or portrait box works the best for you and your family.  

PAYMENT OPTIONS

Cash, debit or credit card or check. Balances that remain after the $500 deposit are eligible for 3 or 6 month payment plans.
