Equine Christmas Garland Photoshoots | 2022

Christmas Garland sessions are BACK!

This year Christmas Garland sessions are only available in bookings of three, or will be complimentary with any horse & rider or fine art (black background) session booked between now and November 30th.

What does an Equine Christmas session look like?

Equine Christmas Sessions are structured just like an equine fine art session, taken in a shaded location such as shed or stable breezeway, in front of a black backdrop.

We will slowly introduce the backdrop and garland to your horse with lots of encouragement to ensure it’s a positive experience for all. I’ll supply these items, along with a bag of tricks to assist in posing and getting even the most stubborn of ears forward!

Your Christmas photoshoot is complimentary with any portrait session:

If you already know you’re interested in a Horse & Rider or Fine Art (black background) session, then this is perfect for you! Your Christmas session will be completely complimentary when booked in between October 1st and November 30th.

Please note that I have extremely limited availability in the next five weeks, so be sure to secure your date.

Christmas sessions are also available for bookings of three or more horses at one location:

Start organising! Get together with a bunch of friends or a group of agistees and make a day of it!

Otherwise you can express interest in a session on location with sign up slots. With enough EOIs, I’ll hire a location, organise the attendees, and all you need to do is hitch the float and rock up!

You and your horse will enjoy:

  • Online welcome pack & presentation guide
  • Twenty minutes with your horse in the HSP Christmas Garland
  • One image to keep forever, edited with the HSP signature hand-drawn contouring process
  • Your selected image will come in both social media size and in high resolution with a print release – perfect for making Christmas cards to send to your loved ones!
  • A metal Christmas ornament of your selected image, to hang on your tree and bring your horse into your home
  • Option to purchase additional images, Christmas Tree Ornaments and Christmas Cards through my professional print labs

Christmas sessions are $290 per horse
