I’ll position you and your horse in ways which make you both look good (not you looking great next to a bored horse who’s standing like a camel!) and facilitate those genuine, intimate moments.

photo sessions are daunting, I know.

You want your photos to be breathtaking, but you still want to feel like yourself.

stressful photo session resulting in awkward, stiff photographs which don't stir any emotions

That’s why I believe you deserve a photographer who gets 

HSP clients enjoy the perfect balance of posed, spontaneous and intimate moments. I’m talking hold the awkward, turn up the fun stuff.

That’s why I believe you deserve a photographer who gets 

you.

I believe in photo sessions which are actually 

That means smiles, laughter, pats, kisses, and bear hugs, in an experience which becomes a whole new favourite memory in of itself... and most of all, heart-warming memories which capture the essence of your relationship with your horse.  

the results

HOW DOES THIS SOUND?

Photographs where you AND your horse look a million bucks - not just you

Photos which genuinely capture the love, the quirks, the joy of your relationship with your horse

Working with a fun, quirky photographer who GETS the horse bug and will probably steal some pony kisses 

Photographs which make you look like you’ve got your shit together (even if you don’t yet!), and boost your confidence in yourself as an equestrian 

Photographs which make you swell with pride every time you see them, because you’re blessed to own the most beautiful horse in the world 

Photographs which remind you why you do this on your toughest days 

A home where you smile every time you walk into a room and your eyes fall over your printed memories

A photographer who’ll stay in your corner for life

INTENTIONAL MOMENTS

TANGIBLE MEMORIES.

The breathtaking imagery we create will be worthy of so much more than a life on your hard-drive.

Your stunning horse and precious memories deserve so much more than a home on the harddrive and cloud, only called upon when remembered. When you print your photographs, you allow the memories and emotions to come flooding back every time your eyes fall over your art.

All HSP collections include a stunning album and credit towards wall art, so your memories can take pride of place in your home. Each of these is designed to truly last, with a 30+ year guarantee covering even accidental damage.

build your experience a la carte or select from
pre-prepared collections

This isn’t an “add your session to cart and I’ll see you the day of” kinda deal.

You deserve the best experience. That’s why I want to make sure I’m the right choice for you.

As much as I would love to, I can’t take every session I’m approached to photograph. I become genuinely invested in every one of my clients’ equine love stories, and serve them well. That’s why it’s important I work with horse lovers with shared values.

I’d love to hear more about you and your horse’s story.

Imagine actually being able to relax in your photo session because you have peace of mind, knowing your photographer has taken the time to get to know you and your needs.

You spend an evening adoring on your horse, laughing at their every quirk, feeling their warm deep breaths. A chance to just be and soak up every moment. You end the evening and think to yourself ‘hey, that was actually fun’.


Three years from now, you get up each morning and feel your heart sing as your eyes land on the art which brings your horse to the front and centre of your home.

Thirty years from now you flick through your album with your horse and feel every emotion rush back; the strength of your connection, the certainty you feel when they are beside you - transporting you back in time to that afternoon you got to just be with your heart horse.

you can have
that experience.

frequently asked questions

You’re not alone!

I’m experienced in working with horses to get the best out of them, even when they’re a bit fidgety. I’ve writing a whole blog post on the subject here.

The professional equipment I use ensures you have a beautiful blurred background to allow you and your horse’s relationship to take centre-stage. This also means that having a phenomenal background isn’t necessary.

If you are concerned, I do have some tips on presenting your property in my welcome pack, as well as a list of options if you’d like to travel off property.

See here the location I used to take these headshots with Arthur.

Not at all!

All collections include a print credit, with most collections also including an album. This is because I believe that printed art is the best way to experience your memories. It’s completely up to you if you use your print credit. Your credit will be valid for three years after your session date, so you can choose to wait until the time is right for you to decorate your home.

All of the printed artwork I offer includes the associated high resolution digitals. In most cases, this means that you get the best value from buying your memories as a print versus a digital.

No :) All you need is a flat, roofed area with 5-10m of space in front.

I bring a backdrop with me every session so we can be flexible. More of my black background sessions have been done in carports or sheds than in stable blocks!

For a white background session an open but covered space such as a carport is actually preferred to a closed in stable block.

I’ve photographed plenty of dark animals including horses and dogs. The ‘contouring’ process I use when editing means that you can always see them against dark objects or black backgrounds.

Sure do! Whether in the images with your beloved horse or enjoying a session of their own, I’d love to immortalise your fur baby. 

I can photograph multiple horses! For this you will need to add on additional time to one of the smaller collections a la carte, or select one of the larger collections. 

Horse, rider and tack should be well presented to get the best out of your photo session. You can also see my session preparation tips here.

A signed contract and a paid $150 retainer and I’m yours!

I have a guide on a timeline for the perfect photo session here.

After your session you’ll be shown a gallery of anywhere from 50-100 proofs to select from. This varies on the length of your session and number of pets and outfits included. Think of this gallery as what you would see immediately after a competition.

We’ll work together to nail down your choices and select your artwork. Depending on your collection, you can select up to 60 images as digital and printed keepsakes. You can still then select further images.

Your prints will be sent to you after a quality inspection by myself, and your digital files will be emailed to you.

Each collection includes 30 minutes or more of travel from my home in the Hawkesbury or my office in Schofields. 

This would fall under commercial use. If you are interested in images solely for your business, I recommend contacting me about a brand photography experience. 

I can offer an a la carte experience at a reduced price (i.e. session time only) for horses with a terminal diagnosis. This guarantees that you have memories with your horse, and can come back to buy digital or printed art when you are ready.

As these sessions usually occur on short notice, they incur an extended turnaround time.

You can add more travel to your collection if you live further away, or if you'd like to split your session over 2 days. This is a great option if you'd like your horse plaited or banded for your fine art session, but with a free flowing mane for your horse & rider session!
