It's the story of you and your best friend, and it deserves to be told in the most beautiful, authentic, natural way. I know that you have dozens of options when it comes to choosing a photographer to capture the story of you and your heart horse, so why choose me? Because I get it. And I care.
I’m just as obsessed with horses as you are. I understand how it feels to have your heart flutter every time you drive up to the barn and catch a glimpse of your horse in his paddock. I know that nothing else in the world compares to the sound of your horse nickering as he sees you walking up to his stall. And I know how it feels to be in complete harmony and synchronicity with the opinionated 1,000lb animal you sit astride, if even for just a fleeting moment.
The bond between you and your horse is unique, it's special and it's sacred and there's nothing else in the world like it. The two of you have a story, and whether you're at the beginning, end, or somewhere in the middle of that story, it's beautiful and it deserves to be told.
So let's tell it together.
THEY'RE NOT "JUST PICTURES" - THIS IS THE STORY OF YOU AND YOUR HORSE

Let's chat over email or phone to make sure we're the perfect fit! I want to hear a bit more about you and your horse and what you are envisioning for your portraits. It's really important to me that you're relaxed and comfortable for your session - and I also want you to have fun! So get in touch and let's talk!
1. Say Hello
After we've connected and you've secured your session on the calendar, we'll set a date to meet in person at your farm or boarding facility to design the perfect shoot! Here we can get the first date jitters out of the way - we'll get to know each other, chat about outfits and tack and how you envision displaying your portraits, and we'll make sure you're totally prepared and excited for your session. I'll send you your Portrait Planning Guide magazine and all of the other insider details and helpful prep tips that I've collected over the years. And get this - I even have checklists, if that's your jam!
2. Your Pre-Session Consultation
It's the big day! You're prepped and ready, your horse is relaxed, fed and groomed, and it's go time. I'll arrive ahead of time so that I can scope out the property and plan the flow of your session, and then we'll start shooting. I'll gently guide you through natural, comfortable poses as well as capture those funny candid moments between you and your horse.
3. Your Photo Shoot
About 3 weeks after your session, you'll receive an email from me with a link to your private password-protected online gallery. From here you can download your images and order prints, wall art, and albums. Still not quite sure how you want to display your portraits? Let me know - I can help you find the perfect pieces that match your style or decor.
4. Your Portraits
About 2-3 weeks after you place your print order through your gallery, you should receive your one-of-a-kind gorgeous finished wall art and prints! Woohoo!
5. Your Prints & Art
The actual shoot ended up being an afternoon of total enjoyment! Jessica is an extremely talented, professional photographer, with an excellent eye and keen ability to capture the right moments as they naturally unfold. The images are a treasured keepsake for our family, and I consider Jessica a treasured friend. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Jessica is an absolutely wonderful human and very talented photographer! She is kind, patient and down to earth. I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. Horses bring unexpected situations and Jessica was kind and understanding through all of my many horse related issues. The session exceeded all of my expectations! I’m glad to now call Jessica a friend! Highly recommend!

We had the best time working with Jessica on our engagement photo shoot. It was a super hot and muggy day, and Jessica went above and beyond to keep us cool and comfortable for the shoot - bringing along a fan and other props to help us cool down. She did an amazing job photographing Noelle (my mare), finding the best locations/light on the property, and was generally a blast to work with!

I had a horse & rider portrait session with Jessica and she was amazing! She really took the time to find all the best spots at my farm and was very patient and knowledgeable when it came to getting the best shots. She was very prepared to work with my horse and really got the best out of him! Our final photos were so amazing.

So amazing to work with, from our first initial encounter with her to the end and beyond. I had a complex photo shoot - 2 mares and 7 family members. The entire experience and the end results were priceless and full of every emotion I had with my older beloved mare, who was the main focus of this photo session. Exceeded all my expectations!!
