Horse & Rider Sessions

Your relationship with your horse is priceless. It deserves to be documented beautifully, in a way that will allow you to look back and remember each moment with startling clarity. 

Custom portrait sessions are ideal for graduating seniors or as a treat to yourself to commemorate your special equine partner.

FAQ

What do I need to reserve my session?

A 30% retainer is due upon booking to reserve your date and time. You will also receive a contract, which must be signed and returned to solidify your session date.

Where & when should we schedule my session?

I typically recommend holding sessions at the barn where your horse is kept. Holding the session at "home" will help both of you feel relaxed. However, if you have a different location in mind, you may trailer in to a location of your choosing.

Clients have the option to have their session held early-mid morning or late afternoon into evening. The exact time of day will depend on the time of year, but I aim to schedule Horse & Rider sessions 1 hour after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset. This gives us the best chance to work with warm, golden light!

How soon will I see my images?

3-4 weeks after your session, I will have completed your final images and I will post your private online gallery. You will have immediate access to your images online. If you choose a Premium Package, products included in your session fee will arrive as soon as they are received from my lab.

What should I wear?

Prior to your session, we'll discuss wardrobe options and I'll send over a helpful document that can guide your choices. What you wear is totally up to you: you can choose to be casual, classic, or even super dressy. With the exception of mini sessions, each session package includes multiple outfit changes so you can encompass a variety of looks.

What if the weather is bad?

If the weather is too poor on the day of your session, we will reschedule for a later date at no cost to you. We'll reschedule in case of extreme cold, hard rain, or weather conditions that don't match the preferred style of your session.

Keep in mind that a little cloud cover isn't necessarily a bad thing - it actually makes for soft, even light that's super flattering for your features!

Can I share my images on social media?

I know you can't wait to show off your gorgeous horse to your family and friends! When you purchase any portraiture package, your images are provided to you in a web-sized format for easy sharing online. Credit is always appreciated, but not required.

Do you offer payment plans?

Interest-free payment plans are available on Premium Collections and select products. Please inquire for details.

the fine print

Upon booking, a 30% non-refundable retainer is due to reserve your date and time. The remaining balance is due the day of your session. 

In accordance with Connecticut state law, a sales tax charge of 6.35% will be applied to all services and products, and is not reflected in the above prices. All prices subject to change. Due to the custom nature of photography, all sales are final and nonrefundable. 

I am happy to travel to any location. Sessions further than 25 miles from Hartford, CT 06101 are subject to a small travel fee of $0.50/mi. after the first 25 miles. 

Contract with model release must be signed and returned prior to all sessions.
