Three Horses, Two Yards & A Very Sunny Day
In May I met with Sarah, her Mum Debbie and their three horses, Bumble, Dubai and Mayo for a portfolio shoot. We began the photoshoot at the yard where they keep two of their horses, Bumble and Dubai. We then later moved on to the second yard where I photographed Sarah with her youngster, Mayo.
We started the day with Sarah & Bumble. Bumble is Sarah's chestnut gelding, who you may well recognise from a photoshoot we did about a year ago with in hand and ridden photos for me to get some dressage photography practice in.
Sarah had prepared lots of outfits for the day, for her photos with Bumble she started with jeans, a blouse and short boots for the first location, followed by the beautiful long white dress pictured in the above image for the second location. When you reach the end of the blog and see the range of images we captured, it will really help to show why I always recommend you bring multiple outfits to get as wider range of images possible.
The second horse of the day was Sarah's Mum's horse, Dubai. I have to admit, I am a little bit obsessed with this horse and I am sure you will see why when you see the photos of him below. For the images with Dubai, Sarah worse a different blouse and jeans to the photos with Bumble, and this time paired them with tall Fairfax & Favor boots.
This time we headed to the private quiet road that the leads to the yard, where there were huge beautiful flowers that provided an excellent backdrop. The road to the yard is long and lined with trees, which also provided a great backdrop to the images.
The third and final horse of the day was Sarah's young gelding, Mayo. We drove about 20minutes down the road to the yard where he is kept, and did our final two outfits here. For her first outfit Sarah worse a white playsuit, and for her second outfit she wore another lovely long dress.
Mayo's yard was yet another with vibrant flowers and open fields, so we came away with even more beautiful images as a result.
It was such a lovely afternoon and I am so pleased with the images we came away with. Below is a small selection of some of my favourites.
Thank you to Sarah, Debbie, Bumble, Dubai & Mayo!
