preparing for your shoot

what should i wear?

whatever you feel most comfortable in! wear an outfit you love, whether it's your whites or your favorite dress. jeans are great with a clean top. i would steer clear of open-toed shoes, though.

how do i prepare my pony?

three simple steps: clean bridle, clean coat, clean tail. we want your pony to look its best, and grass stains aren't always easy to edit out. soap those socks and trim that mane. braids are optional, and i always encourage painted feet.

what do we need for a portrait session?

i don't use lights or backdrops, and the only accessory i'll bring is a mirror. peppermint crinkling is enough, and i try to reward the horses as much as possible for their patience. we will shoot in a clean swept aisle facing light with any lights inside the barn off.

what bridle should i use?

i prefer to shoot with hunter bridles or figure eights. i would steer clear of double bridles, pelhams, and elevators. snaffles are encouraged, even if your horse doesn't go in them. bit guards should be taken off, as well as the reins for portrait sessions. have a shank available to loop through the bit for portrait shots.


testimonials

“i knew these pictures were going to mean a lot to me and shelby went above and beyond my expectations! she managed to capture how much i love my horse through a camera and I now have pictures that I will treasure forever. she made the shoot feel so natural and was great about answering the hundreds of questions i had before the shoot.”

“shelby is the most outgoing photographer you’ll meet. she’s not afraid to take risks for the perfect shot and is so patient with the horses (not to mention her photos are absolutely stunning, and always capture the little details!).”

“shelby is the best photographer i’ve worked with. she is very fun and encouraging to be around, and makes photo shoots not stressful at all. i love her!”
