EQUINE PORTRAIT SESSION PRICING
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment
until it becomes a memory. - Dr. Seuss
“I have been riding and competing in the horse world for almost 50 years, and have seen lots of wonderful equestrian photography and art around the world. When I first met Maria, she was just beginning to develop her eye and skill, but even then she had an ability capture something more than just a beautiful animal. She had a natural gift that has evolved and refined over time. Through her love and appreciation of horses, she manages to capture moods, spirit, and emotion.
Her stunning photos of the wild horses that still roam free in America inspire us to help protect these icons of freedom. Her horse show and personal portrait shots express the joy of riding and competing
and the personal bond between horse and rider.”
- Grace Kamphefner, Owner Flying Change Farms LLC.

BEFORE YOUR SESSION
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.
DURING YOUR SESSION
WHAT TO EXPECT
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,
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
Please note that a spacious and uncluttered barn or an indoor arena with at least one solid wall is required to create a comfortable and safe environment.
Although each horse is different, sessions usually last 30-45 min.
