If you have horses for sale it’s imperative to have beautiful images to show them off in their best light. Just like doing nice photos of the dogs at our local shelter helps them get adopted, having great photographs of your horses will bring the most money and also provide you with beautiful memories through those pictures.
Sometimes you go to go a portrait shoot for horses at an equestrian location and the dogs are just plain irresistible!
It’s always fun to do an equine photography session of my sister & her giant horse, Freja, here in Nashville. They are both so photogenic. This time we were at her barn in Colombia, TN and included her gorgeous Bernese Mountain dog, Yogi, and her British Cream, Levi. Of course she used one for her Christmas card=) Maybe next year we’ll get some in Ocala, FL!
Lynn & Buddy proved to both be terrific equine photography models, both willing to try anything, Buddy almost walking thru an old barn door that dropped off about 4 feet!!! Yikes! We had so much fun shooting pictures, then took a ride around the beautifully groomed Harlinsdale Farm Park trails. I brought Carly & she was a good pacifier grazing just off camera so Buddy wasn’t worried and calling for horse friends. Thank goodness we got these done before the hot humid Summer was here. It’s been a gorgeous Spring this year.
Susan stopped for an overnighter on her way to a horse training clinic & I had to go grab my camera for a quick shoot while the afternoon light was pretty in the field next door. She said she has never had an equine photo session, much less any nice photography with her horses. Certainly not a full on horsey photo session but happy to oblige my good friend with some nice memories! Could you die for either of these adorable/beautiful horses?!
You may remember Scherzo from an earlier post. Libby had me come out to do an equine photo shoot for her & her Shagra Arabian, Scherzo, who is 20 years young. When she contacted me to do a framed 16×20 photo of this image/pose, I mentioned that that particular pic would make a beautiful commissioned art painting (pastel actually) & Libby decided that was indeed what she wanted. After is was delivered she wrote to say, “It’s up – and it’s magical. I am absolutely delighted with the portrait – I know that I will love it forever. I get a good feeling looking at it. Thank you so much!” Libby
I wish I had taken these pix with my Nikon, not my iphone, but they are OK.
