"If you want something to look interesting, don't light all of it."

 - John Loengard


"Maria is not only a master of wild horse/horse and rider photography, her eye for the artistic, the outstanding, and the brilliant emotions in her portrait settings are absolutely second to none. Every single image she chooses for you is breathtaking.

It is the soul of your horse."

- BJ LeMaster | Sacramento, CA

Once your session is booked, a half hour phone consultation will be scheduled to discuss goals and expectations for all parties. At that time Maria will also have the opportunity to learn about your horse and answer any questions you may have.

A session contract and PDF with information on how to prepare for your photo shoot will be emailed to you after the phone consultation.

A signed contract and deposit lock in your date. 



With full creative control over lighting, Maria will capture shape, form and the essence of your horse highlighted in a simple and elegant way.


Throughout the session, you will be given detailed direction on how to position your horse, when necessary. 

A special photo halter will be provided for handling your horse, which is later removed from the image in post-production.  Alternatively, you can choose to have your special bridle or halter in the images,

if desired.



The safety of your horse is our primary concern.

With that in mind, our mobile studio is designed in such a way as to promote maximum

safety for the animal.

No cords will be run on the ground. We consciously take time at the beginning of the session to acclimate your horse to the surroundings

and equipment.

Please note that a spacious and uncluttered barn or an indoor arena, preferably with at least one solid wall, is required to create a comfortable and safe environment.

Although each horse is different, sessions usually last around 45 min.


A private online gallery with at least 10 pre-edited images will be available for viewing within two weeks after your session.

Five favorite images to be fully edited and delivered to you via download link.

Your favorite image will be printed on a up to 12"x18"  100% cotton rag fine art paper using archival digital pigment ink. The print will be shipped to you un-matted and un-framed.


A 1.5" border will be added to the size for easy framing.

Additional prints are available for purchase on fine art paper, canvas and metal.
