The Experience

I'LL BE YOUR PERSONAL GUIDE

It's so important to me that we capture that incredible bond that you share with your horse. Your portraits should be just as unique and special as that bond, and they should also tell the whole story! I'll gently guide you throughout the session to make sure we get it all, from beautiful poses to fun candids and sweet details.

WE'LL TELL YOUR STORY

There's nothing like seeing your portraits in print, which is why every session includes fine art prints or print credit along with your digital images, so you can enjoy your portraits every day! It's the best of both worlds!

TO KEEP FOREVER

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! 

Say Hello

let's chat! >

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! 

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. 

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. 

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! 

Your Prints and Art

Let's do this. Together.

The Investment Details

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!

Jessica did an AMAZING job and I am so happy with how the pictures came out! She was very patient with my restless standardbred and knew exactly what to do to make my horse look perfect in every photo.

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!!
