I had a photo shoot with Violette & Tommy last month at Holme Farm Equestrian. It's a yard I know well, I used to work there a few years ago, and I've done a few photo shoots there now.

 

They've got a lovely yard, and they also have access to the most beautiful wood with a stream running through that they use for hacking, which of course made a lovely location for some photos as well.

 

Violette & Tommy mainly do showjumping together - I've seen some videos on her instagram of them jumping, and he definitely absolutely loves it! We had loads of fun doing their photo shoot, it was lovely to see Tommy's personality and their partnership together.

"When I saw the amazing quality of her pictures and all her recommendations I just had to book a photo shoot with Imogen! I was a bit nervous as I had never had a photo shoot before but also excited! I was worried about how the photos in my different outfits would turn out but Imogen helped me find the perfect match and the photos looked unbelievable!
 

The photoshoot itself was amazing Imogen was so nice and friendly that I forgot I was having my pictures taken! I really enjoyed being able to try lots of different locations so that I could find the perfect picture! The photos are better than I could have imagined and I love how they still look so natural even after editing!
 

I received all the range of photos I could have wanted and it was a really enjoyable experience - They make me feel so happy and they will always be treasured. I would 100% book another photo shoot with her!"

Abbie & Lewis - An Equine photo shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/4/abbie-lewis---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Abbie & Lewis

I was blessed with the most amazing sunset for my photo shoot with Abbie & Lewis in March. I love shooting in golden hour, silhouette style photos are my absolute favourite, so when I get chance to do some I get so excited!

 

Everyone knows chestnuts are my favourite, and that includes this handsome lad. Him & Abbie have done a bit of everything together, but unfortunately he had recently suffered an injury which meant he was out of work, and he would probably have to be put to sleep, hence the reason for our photo shoot.

 

Abbie&Lewis34Abbie&Lewis34

 

"After lots of recommendations and seeing beautiful photos of others, I decided to book a photo shoot with Imogen.


Before the photo shoot I was worried because my horse is very grumpy and uncooperative so I didn’t think we would be able to get nice ones where he looked quiet and happy. I thought there might be very limited ones even after she shoot as he was very cheeky and definitely not model material but wow there were about 100 and every one was beautiful.
Imogen was so patient with my horse and tried many things to get him interested. There was so much variety and we both look like we’re having a lovely time.

 

I felt no pressure which is the best thing for me as I’m very self conscious and don’t like all eyes on me. Imogen was so lovely and kind with me and my horse by keeping us busy with poses and lots of locations but without feeling rushed or under pressure. She captured every single moment perfectly.

 

My favourite part of the photo shoot was just enjoying time with my horse and talking about what we’ve accomplished together. This photoshoot was arranged to give me some lasting memories of my boy and I was worried I might get upset but Imogen laughed with me and genuinely cares about you and your horse. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

 

 

 

Abbie&Lewis6Abbie&Lewis6


 

I wasn’t expecting much from it as we only had an hour of light and most of that was cheeky horse dragging me to grass or trying to bite me!! But there were so many beautiful images in my gallery and such a wide variety. Every moment Lewis gave us she captured beautifully and with so much of his personality.


 

I would book again in a heartbeat! My photos are so precious as I have now lost my horse. On booking I was worried I would get emotional or stressed but there was no such feeling and the whole time she kept us both focused and engaged while we talked about every adventure and laughed at his uncooperative nature.

 

They give me so much joy, and the experience was such a blessing. I am so grateful to Imogen for capturing my beautiful boy and all his personality, they will always be some of my best memories with him that I will love forever."

Vicky & Balibu - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/4/vicky-balibu---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire Vicky & Balibu

 

Vicky&Balibu(10)Vicky&Balibu(10)

 

 

I went over to do a photo shoot with Vicky and her gorgeous chestnut showjumping horse, Balibu, a few weeks ago. If you know me, you know chestnuts are my absolute favourite! And his personality was just amazing - Vicky warned me he was very suspicious of things, and he definitely proved her right!

His facial expressions had me giggling the whole time, they were just an absolute pleasure to photograph.

 

 

Balibu is kept at her mum & dad's gorgeous house in Nottinghamshire, it is so lovely there, literally the perfect photo shoot yard location!

 

Vicky & Balibu do showjumping together. I saw a video she posted on her facebook the other day and boy can he jump! It's one of my favourite parts about doing this job - when you see the relationship that horse and rider have behind the scenes, away from the pressure of competition, and get to capture those truly special moments they share every day.

 

Vicky&Balibu(85)Vicky&Balibu(85)

 

"I was slightly nervous before my photo shoot because I didn’t know what to expect and I was worried how I would look in photos... I’d seen Imogen’s photos that she did for a friend and just loved them - she seemed to capture little moments unstaged. 

 


I was worried about how I would look in the photos and about the photos looking awkward because I don’t generally photograph well but I really didn’t need to worry. Imogen captured amazing photos and made the whole process so care free and there was absolutely no pressure. I wish I’d done it sooner!

 


The photo shoot went really well. Imogen was fabulous at putting me at ease, it felt like a friend had come to visit! Everything ran smoothly, I enjoyed it all and I was so excited when I received the link to my final gallery! The photographs were better than expected. So much so it took me ages to choose the images I finally wanted in print - Looking at my photos makes me feel so proud of my horse. I’ll cherish them forever!"

Charlotte & Archie - An Equine Photoshoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/3/charlotte-archie---an-equine-photoshoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Charlotte & Archie

 

Charlotte & Archie -44Charlotte & Archie -44

 

I had a photo shoot with Charlotte and her lovely grey thoroughbred, Archie, a few weeks ago now. They were at the most gorgeous location in Nottingham, literally not far from the city centre where you'd never believe how gorgeous the location was. 

 

We started off in the park across the road, then did a few around their yard. The village was so pretty, and even though it was overcast and a bit breezy, we got some really beautiful images!

 

Charlotte & Archie-94Charlotte & Archie-94

 

“The images Imogen has on her Instagram is the same kind of feel I go for, they looked fun, vibrant and like a lot of love went into them, so I decided to book a photo shoot with her.

Before my photo shoot with Imogen I was nervous of how Archie would be and if I would look awkward as I’m quite picky with photos but Imogen told me where to stand how to hold Archie, to relax and have fun with him so there was no issues.

Our photo shoot went very well, at first Archie didn’t like the woods as it was very windy in there, but Imogen did what she could in there and then took us back to more familiar surroundings. The rest of the shoot was amazing, fun and so enjoyable!

My favourite part was probably the bit where I wore the dress and Imogen got images showing our true bond together - the images turned out even more beautiful than I expected!

I am so over the moon with the images and I will hold them very close forever.
It was totally worth the investment and I will book in again very soon for some summer shots!"

I managed to catch up with my lovely sponsored rider, Beth last week. AND we finally got some nice weather for a photo shoot! Whenever I have previously been to photograph them, it has usually rained!

 

This was my first equine photo shoot with daffodils, thanks to lockdown last year, I didn't manage to get any daffodil photo shoots! So I'm super excited to tick that off my bucket list, and share these gorgeous photos with you!

Megan, Boris & Spirit - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/3/megan-boris-spirit---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

Megan booked in to have the "First Love" Photo shoot package at the end of February. She wanted some photos with her rescue horse, Boris, who was skin and bones when she got him. Safe to safe he is super handsome and well now, and she's done an amazing job getting him to where he is now! 

 

A few weeks after Megan booked, she found out that she was being gifted her old pony, Spirit, back to have a last summer of love after he was diagnosed with Keratoma. 

Naturally we added him into the photo shoot to capture as many precious memories with him and them all together as possible.

 

Megan, Boris & Spirit (52)Megan, Boris & Spirit (52)

 

 

"I booked a photo shoot with Imogen because I saw the quality/natural style of Imogen’s previous work. I was also recommended Imogen by somebody I know.

Imogen made me feel at ease and answered any queries I had before our shoot. I had a few concerns about locations on our yard of where we could take photos etc, but Imogen assured me that was her job to sort that out and she found some amazing places I wouldn’t have even thought of and I didn’t even have to think about that on the day, which made the stresses of cleaning two coloured ponies much easier!

Imogen is such a lovely person, makes you feel at ease, and is a helping hand, especially when you’re trying to control two cheeky ponies!

 

Megan, Boris & Spirit (43)Megan, Boris & Spirit (43)
 

 

Imogen didn’t hesitate to spend plenty of time making sure we had amazing images, and after seeing the quality of my photos it was worth every minute.
I loved the entire process, from speaking to Imogen to book our shoot in, to choosing outfit ideas, getting the ponies ready, and meeting Imogen. It all ran smoothly! I got images that were even better than I thought they would be. The photos are amazing and capture the personality of both my ponies perfectly. They are memories I can treasure forever. 

Having a photo shoot with Imogen was worth every penny, the photos are amazing, and have captured a moment in time with both my ponies. 

I would without a doubt have a photo shoot with Imogen again!"

Dog theft tips - in partnership with Carlen's Companions. Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/3/dog-theft-tips---in-partnership-with-carlens-companions-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Carlen's Companions (214)Carlen's Companions (214)

 

 

Dog theft in the UK has risen by a massive 250% in 2020... due to lockdown, more people were at home and getting dogs, which is considered to be the main contributing factor.

 

Did you know that...

50% of dogs are stolen from gardens.

19% are taken from breaking into homes.

16% are taken from owners whilst out walking.

7% are taken when left outside of shops.

 

So here's some tips for you, to make sure you're doing everything you can to make sure your precious fur baby is safe wherever you go!

 

Carlen's Companions (235)Carlen's Companions (235)
 

 

1. PREVENTION

 

Don't leave your dog unattended in a car, garden, or outside a shop.
Download the What3Words location system.
Don't post pictures of your dogs online with information about them (unless your dog has been stolen!)
Make sure your dog his microchipped & wearing ID.
Never leave windows or gates open when your dog is home alone.
Invest in a ring doorbell or cameras.

 

Carlen's Companions (176)Carlen's Companions (176)
 

 

2. PREPARE

 

Don't think your dog will not be targeted... ALL breeds are at risk, especially if they look like an easy target.
Walk in pairs or groups.
Be wary of anything unusual: People, noises, vehicles - especially at night.
Talk to other owners and create a local community/whatsapp group.
Always make sure your phone is charged.
Don't walk with headphones in.

 

Carlen's Companions (71)Carlen's Companions (71)
 

 

3. WHILST WALKING

 

Make sure your lead is safe... no frays & can't be easily cut.
Have anti-theft deterrents to hand and on outside pockets. Inside your coat or bag can cost you precious seconds.
Be aware of everything... by doing this you'll give yourself more time to react & get out of the situation.
Vary your walks, timings & locations. Always let someone know where and for how long you're going.
If you feel uncomfortable, call your dog back.

 

Carlen's Companions (43)Carlen's Companions (43)
 

 

4. WHAT TO DO IF APPROACHED

 

Do not give out any information about your dog.
If your dog doesn't like strangers/being caught, let them off the lead! It might mean you struggle to catch them afterwards, but at least they're coming home with you!
If your dog is friendly, pop them back on their lead. This prevents them being lured away with food, toys or attention. Keep them close to you, and get out of the situation.
Do not turn your back, keep facing them and back away slowly.
Get home as quickly as possible.

 

5. WHAT TO DO IF YOUR DOG IS TAKEN

 

Call 999
Shout and raise the alarm if safe to do so, as soon as the individual is out of range of hurting you.
If possible, get a photo/video of the individual, vehicle and area.
Write down all the details as soon as possible.

 

Carlen's Companions (160)Carlen's Companions (160)
 

 

6. PET CARE

 

Ask people you trust for recommendations.
Ask professionals for references.
Ask about picking up/dropping off protocols.
Ask about what they post on their page - make sure they don't use exact locations.

 

 

 

Ask for a pet care window minimum of 1.5 hours, this makes it unpredictable for anyone trying to target your pet, and removes routine.

Eeek! I've been waiting for ages for someone to ask me to do an equestrian clothing photo shoot! I was thrilled when Emily from Equilux asked me to come and take some of her brand new clothing line and her gorgeous bridles!

The bridles model is her gorgeous showjumping mare, Ella. She was so good and so patient whilst we put over 20 different bridles on her to photograph! Then we met at her sponsored rider's yard to do the clothing side. Helen has two lovely showjumping horses, Olaf & Cindy, who were also exceptionally great models (despite Olaf injecting a bit of enthusiasm into the in hand photos!).

I have purchased some things from Emily myself, after seeing the quality of the bridles and clothing I honestly couldn't help myself! The bridles are super soft and the browbands on them are just gorgeous - perfect for the sparkly lovers! And the colours and design of the clothing is just incredible, they feel like you're wearing a second skin, and keep you the perfect temperature whilst riding. Comfortable, practical AND stylish!

This is what Emily had to say about our photo shoot...

 

"I first met Imogen just before Christmas, when one of our liveries organised a Christmas photoshoot of the horses. It was great fun and the pictures turned out amazing. Having recently set up an online equestrian retail shop selling a lot of our own brand items such as tack and clothing, I approached Imogen to ask if she would be interested in doing a commercial shoot of the items. Luckily for me she said yes, and I couldn’t be happier with the finished results for our website and social media pages.
Nothing is too much trouble for Imogen, she’s hugely talented at what she does, is creative and has such a relaxed and friendly manner she really gets the best out of both humans and horses!
I highly recommend Imogen for both personal and business shoots - you really won’t be disappointed!"

I did my photo shoot with Rachel & her boys back in December last year. It was a beautiful crisp winter morning, the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the Nottinghamshire countryside looked absolutely glorious. 

 

Wellington is her older boy (the bay), and Rachel wanted some photos of him, and her younger, new horse, Henry (The coloured). 

We started at her yard, and then moved to a beautiful yard across the road where Rachel rents the school. The yard owner was happy for us to do a few photos there as well, and we got some really lovely ones. I love the light in winter, it's just so beautiful.

It takes about 2 weeks for me to edit and prepare your online gallery ready for viewing. Your gallery will be on my website, and password protected. When it's ready, I'll email you the link ad the password so you can view your images. 

Underneath each image is a code, normally your horse/dog's name with a number, so it's really easy to pick your images. 

The amount you get included in your package depends on the package you've chosen, then of course there is always the option to upgrade your package, or purchase extras if you'd like to. 

 

 

Your gallery will stay online for 4 weeks after your photo shoot, so there is plenty of time to choose. If you'd like to view your gallery again once it's been taken down, just drop me a message and I can easily put it back up for you.

 

Once you've placed your order, digital files are emailed within 24 hours, and prints/frames are usually delivered (by hand where possible) within a further 2 weeks. 

I'm always around to answer any questions you might have, too.

What happens on your photo shoot day?

 

Ever wondered how the actual photo shoot day works? Today I'm gonna walk you through a general equine & dog photo shoot day with me.

 

EQUINE PHOTO SHOOT

 

Tess & Indie (40)Tess & Indie (40)

 

Normally, an equine photo shoot will take place wherever your horse is stabled, sometimes you may decide you want a beach photo shoot, or maybe a local park or something similar. Whatever you choose, the process is largely the same.

Once I arrive, I'll spend a bit of time having a chat with you, taking a look around the location, and I'll usually show you some of the frame samples, depending on your chosen package before we get started too. There is also plenty of time to go over outfits together if you're unsure, as well. Once we've had a look around, the fun stuff starts.

 

 

If you're feeling a bit uncomfortable, I can always start with some photos of just your horse to ease you in, and often a walk away/walk back along a pathway is a good place to start. From looking around earlier, I'll have a few ideas in mind, then it's time to change into your next outfit and do some more photos. I usually leave riding photos to the end (if you'd like them), this way it doesn't matter if your horse gets a bit hot and sweaty. 

If you'd like some "at liberty" style photos, this is a possibility, too, and normally I'll leave this until after the ridden photos.

 A photo shoot normally lasts about 2 hours, but this can be longer or shorter depending on your horse, the weather etc.

 

 

The whole thing is really relaxed, I'll be chatting to you and guiding you the whole time.

Once the photo shoot is done, I'll give you all the info you need about what happens after your photo shoot.

DOG PHOTO SHOOT

 

IMG_1803IMG_1803

 

Usually a dog photo shoot takes place at one of your favourite dog walking spots. When I arrive, I'll take a bit of time to get to know you and your dog, and then we simply go for walkies together. I might stop and do some "sat down" type images along the way, or if you'd like to be in the photos I simply set these up as we go along, too.

There is plenty of time to change collars or harnesses as we go, and if you're wanting to change your outfits, there is plenty of time for that, too.

 

Dog photo shoots normally last between 1-2 hours, depending on the dog, the walking route, the weather etc.

Once we get back to the car, I'll tell you everything you need to know about what happens after your photo shoot.

How To Prepare Yourself For Your Photo Shoot - Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/2/how-to-prepare-yourself-for-your-photo-shoot---lunar-photography-derbyshire HOW TO PREPARE YOURSELF FOR YOUR PHOTO SHOOT

 

 

Getting yourself ready for your photo shoot is just as important as preparing your horse or dog. You might feel a bit anxious if you've never had a photo shoot before, so I've put a few tips below to help put your mind at ease.

OUTFIT PLANNING...

 

 

You're allowed 3 outfit changes with all my photo shoot packages... you'll receive a style guide in your welcome pack that's full of ideas, too.

 

Have a think if there's anything you'd like to wear around your horse/dog that you don't normally, or if you have a favourite item of clothing, or something sentimental that you'd like to be included, these are good places to start. 


Most people go for a casual, smart casual & a smart outfit choice. It's really up to you what you want to wear, but make sure you feel yourself, and you're warm/cool enough for the weather on the day. If you're struggling, just bring lots of things to your photo shoot and we can decide together.

FEELING AWKWARD...

 

So many people worry about having their photo taken, trust me, I am exactly the same as you. The thought of someone pointing a camera at me for ages makes me cringe. BUT. This is not your supermodel type photo shoot. It's nothing like the paparazzi on the red carpet, I promise. 

 

In fact, you probably won't even notice I've got my camera. I usually spend the whole time chatting to you about something or other, and we already have common ground in horses and dogs, so we will have plenty to talk about. 

 

I asked one of my previous clients what they would say to someone that wanted a photo shoot, but they were worried about having their photo taken, and this is what she said...

 

 

"There is ABSOLUTELY nothing for anyone to worry about when having a photoshoot with you Imogen.
You are super friendly, bubbly and full of smiles and laughter.
You treat each horse like your own, giving them undivided love and attention. I’ve never felt so happy and confident when doing a photo shoot with you.
You are unbelievable and so talented. I can’t wait for a third photo shoot. We love you!”

 

Of course, there are lots of ways we can get gorgeous photos if you really don't want to be in them, too!

EXPECTATIONS VS REALITY...

 

 

When you look at someone's photo shoot, you might think "wow, that horse is so well behaved, look how perfectly he's stood there with his ears forward! My horse will never do that!". And yes, it looks like that in the photo, but actually, the horse probably wasn't still, it took us a few attempts the get the ears forward, and it was probably far from perfect behind the scenes. 

 

My job as a photographer is to be ready for the split second perfect moments, your job is to enjoy yourself and enjoy making memories with your horse and dog. There is absolutely no pressure for you horse or dog to behave perfectly and stand like robots... we all know that's not what they're like, especially when you need them to be well behaved! 

 

The photos we're capturing are a celebration of their true personality, the more their character comes through, the better!

 

Photo 20-07-2020, 18 30 27Photo 20-07-2020, 18 30 27

 

It's always best to give yourself plenty of time on the day of your photo shoot, get everything ready a day or two before, so on the day you only have to think about a few finishing touches.

 

If you have any more questions before booking, feel free to get in touch, I'm more than happy to help with any queries you might have.
Once you've booked you photo shoot, we have a pre-photo shoot consultation over the phone where I can answer any more questions you might have, too.

So you've booked your photo shoot, you've been bouncing with excitement for ages, and it's finally tomorrow! But how do you prepare your horse and dog for the big day?
I've got some advice for you...

 

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)

 

 

EQUINE PHOTO SHOOT PREP

 

 

I always advise giving your horse a bath a day or two before - clean horses make the final gallery look super polished, and no one wants poo stains in their photos!

 

Give any tack you might use a clean, this includes boots & numnahs if you're wanting some ridden photos. Any leatherwork, bridles, headcollars etc. Having clean tack in your photos really makes your images sparkle.

 

It's up to you if you want to plait or not. Most people tend not to because it gives a nice relaxed feel to the photos and is more true to your time spent together at home or training, but this is personal preference! Make sure your horse is plaited before I arrive if you do choose to plait though.

 

 

Once you've done all of this, all that's left to do on the day of the photo shoot is give your horse a quick groom, plait (if you choose to!), and get yourself ready! It's really handy to ask a friend to come and lend a pair of hands on the day.

 

Try and keep your horses routine as normal as possible on the day of your photo shoot - it's best to try and keep them as relaxed as possible lading up to the photo shoot.

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (11)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (11)

 

 

DOG PHOTO SHOOT PREP

 

If you're having a photo shoot with your dog, you might want to give them a bath the day before too. If your dog has long hair that matts easily, it can be good to get them to their groomer in the week or days before your photo shoot, so they look their best.

 

This way you can give them a brush before you leave to have your photo shoot, and they will look lovely and neat. 

 

However, if your dog looks great "ou natural" that's fine, too!
 

It's also a good idea to get any collars/harnesses you'd like to use clean, too.

There are no strict rules, it's entirely up to you. Just remember I don't use photo shop, so I can't edit out blips afterwards!

5 Hacks For Happy Horse Ears - Lunar Photography, Equine Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/1/5-hacks-for-getting-your-horses-ears-forward---lunar-photography-equine-photographer 5 Hacks For Happy Horse Ears 

 

Em & Mouse (109)Em & Mouse (109)

 

Oh yes... the age old problem of getting your horse's ears forward for that perfect photo. Why is it so hard?! 

Seriously, it feels like behind every photo is some poor friend jumping up and down doing something crazy in the hope that your horse might not look like a grump for just one second... 

Well, I've had some fair practice at this, in fact it's one of the most common things people say to me when I arrive at a photo shoot.

"Good luck getting her ears forward!" or "He never puts his ears forward for a photo!"

 

So over the last year or so I'd say I've had some good practice at this... So I've put 5 things below that you can try, to hopefully save your poor friend having to run around like a crazy person for that perfect photo!

 

EMILY & FAMILY (28)EMILY & FAMILY (28)

 

A quick note on technique before we start...

Don't continuously make these noises... use them sparingly. Often horses will get bored of the noise and it won't get their attention after a while, so make sure you're ready to take the photo before you shake or crunch! Also, try moving from one side to the other, and walking towards or away from the horse whilst making the noise, moving around usually helps!

 

1. Stones in a tupawear.

This one seems pretty obvious - but I always start with this. You can find stones almost anywhere, and because they're quite hard, a few of them in a small tupawear can make quite a sharp noise which will often get your horses ears forward. You will get a similar effect with a bucket or feed scoop.

 

2. Crisp packet.

Not always something that you'll have obviously lying around, but anything that makes a similar noise to this might get your horses attention. The familiar sound of a polo packet usually makes them pull a cute face in the hope they might get something yummy.

 

3. Car keys.

Usually someone on the yard will have a set of car keys. Give these a little jingle and see if you can get your horses ears forward.

 

KATIE, CLIP & BETSY (121)KATIE, CLIP & BETSY (121)

 

4. Moving a bucket.

This is quite handy if you're on your own. Get into position and put a feed bucket by your feet, when you're ready to take the photo gently move it across the floor with your foot. The sound of the bucket and the sight of it moving usually gets a flicker of ears forward.

 

5. Putting a coat on a broom handle.

This sounds ridiculous but it does often work. Be safe with this one as some horses will spook at this! I usually get someone to stand just behind me and put a jumper or coat on broom handle and hold it up... I'm constantly monitoring the horses reaction, if they get too upset I will stop straight away. Safety first, try this when the horse is in a safe space (also try this at your own risk) and be sensible. 

 

 

Sometimes it feels like our horse is never going to put their ears forward... don't get stressed or do anything that will seriously spook or upset your horse. Sometimes it's worth being patient and waiting for the perfect moment. Perhaps someone is going to walk past to empty their wheelbarrow, or maybe someone is bringing another horse in from the field, these are all little things that catch your horses attention and often cause them to put their ears forward, so be ready. 

 

 

Remember, don't overuse these tactics, if you want them to work time and time again you need to use them sparingly. There are lots of other ways to get your horse to put your ears forward, but these are just 5 that I use often during my photo shoots.

Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer DerbyshireLunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer Derbyshire

 

 

We all take photos of our dogs. We love sharing their little fury personalities on social media for everyone to see. So here’s some tips to make your photos even better when you’re trying to capture them at home:

 

1.Focus on the eyes
"Eyes are the window to the soul" and being able to see your dogs eyes helps the photo to tell a story.



2. Use a plain background

Keeping a plain or basic background means all the focus is on your wonderful dog!


 

3.Use natural light
Taking a picture next to a natural light source can really enhance a picture, so if you're inside, sit your dog next to a window, or if you're outside, make sure your dog is facing the sun so there's no shadows on their face, or entirely in shade so the light isn’t dappled.

 

CHASE (42)CHASE (42)


.
4. Get low!
Taking a photo at doggie eye level gives a really great perspective! It lets you see the world from your dogs point of view and this gives photos an extra wow factor.

 

 

5. Use noises to get the expression
We all love it when our dogs tilt their head, have their ears pricked and their eyes looking straight at us. A little trick I use to get them looking at the camera is making a funny noise just as I snap the photo. Get creative; some noises make our dogs more curious than others! You can even try a squeaker from a toy.

 

 

Give these tips a go. If you've got any questions about dog photography, leave them in the comments below.

My Photo Of The Year 2020 https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/1/my-photo-of-the-year-2020 I don't even know where to begin with this - I have met SO many amazing people, horses, dogs and done some amazing photo shoots in the last 12 months. I really enjoyed choosing my image of the year in 2019, and so I wanted to do the same again this year. 

It's quite a tough choice, with so many to choose from, but there is one image that really makes my heart beat faster when I see it. Not only because of the actual image itself, but everything it represents, what went into creating the image, and the context of the photo shoot. 

 

So here it is, my photo of the year for 2020...

 

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)

 

 

This was taken in October - it's safe to say over the summer with all the practice my photos have certainly got better! Lexie had sold her pony, Humphrey, and he was leaving for his new home the next day. I knew exactly how she was feeling, as I let me heart horse go back in May 2019. I think that's why it means so much to me.

 

There were a few close seconds, so I'll share them below as well.

Derby College Equestrian Talk December 2020 - Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/12/derby-college-equestrian-talk-december-2020---lunar-photography-derbyshire I still can't believe they asked me to do this...

The lovely Sally at Derby College EC asked little old me to go and give the lovely level 3 students at Derby College Equestrian Center a talk all about my photography business and how I got to where I am now. 

 

I'm not going to lie, I haven't "spoken" in front of people since school, and the thought of doing it was absolutely terrifying, BUT I really wanted to do it. There's something about managing to do something that scares me that gives me such a buzz. Although to some people it seems easy enough to talk in front of 40+ students and teachers, it's not something that sits in my comfort zone.

 

Derby College (42)Derby College (42)

 

It's not often I get asked about my story... From vaulting to eventing to photography, and lots and lots in between... Essentially I am a self taught Equine and dog photographer, and only recently have I invested in myself to help me learn how to be better at "business" and "marketing". This suddenly dawned on me after I'd spoken. The first 18 months of my business I have basically been winging it, learning everything I can for free, and look where it's got me! It's amazing what a bit of hard work and determination can do! And I'm really proud of how far I've come.

 

Derby College (29)Derby College (29)
 

 

It was a real pleasure sharing everything with them, and the bonus was that they each had a quick 10 minute photo session with the college horses (though some of them bought their own horses in!) afterwards. 

It was a really miserable day, so we ended up working in the indoor, which in itself was a massive challenge for me, as I've never taken photos in an indoor arena before - certainly not portrait shots! 

 

So here's some of the photos from the day... The support from the students afterwards was completely overwhelming... And I managed to get through something that scared the hell out of me without choking, vomiting or swearing (bonus!)...

The New Style Guide 2021

I often get asked what people should wear for their photo shoots, so I figured it was time to put a style guide together. This will be emailed to all new bookings in 2021, as inspiration for what to wear for your equine or dog photo shoot!

 

Each package allows you to have 3 outfit changes - it's important to make the most of these changes because it gives such a good variety to the final gallery, and it gives you an opportunity to wear things around your horse that you wouldn't normally. 

So, I suggest 3 ideas, Casual, Smart/Casual & Smart, then you can add accessories as you go. If you're struggling, bring more items of clothing and we can go through it together - it's all part of the fun!

Make sure your hair & nails are clean - the devil is in the details! Keep makeup light - there is always the chance to add more when we get to the smart outfit choice... And last but not least make sure any leather items are clean (your horse tack goes without saying, BUT don't forget to clean your boots, too!).

How To Make The Most Of Your Photo Shoot

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (30)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (30)

 

You've taken the leap! You've put your deposit down, and you're super excited for this incredible, once in a lifetime experience. So how can you make sure you make the most out of your photo shoot? I've got a few hints and tips for you below.

 

Have a look at other equine/dog photo shoot photos.

I'll always ask you if there is a particular image you want - whether it's a black background shot of your horse, or you cantering bareback through a field, or maybe your dog with all four paws off the floor - it's worth doing a bit of internet digging to see if any type of image calls out to you. You can look at Pinterest, or just scroll through my instagram feed or my website to get a feel of poses, and photos that I can produce for you. Let me know what you have in mind, then we can have a chat about how we can achieve just what you're looking for!

 

Make the most of your outfit changes!

You can have up to 3 different outfits during your photo shoot - it's so important to make the most of these because it really gives a great variety to your final gallery. I usually say pick something casual, smart/casual and something smart, but if you don't know, bring lots of different items of clothing and we can choose together! It's all part of the fun! Again, this is something we can have a chat about in our pre-photo shoot phone call!

 

REDONE (204)REDONE (204)

 

Preparation is key!

Spend a bit of time cleaning your tack and any leather items the day before! Having clean tack during your photo shoot gives that extra sparkle to the final gallery. Same goes for your horse, too. No one wants photos with a poobald!

If it's winter and they're clipped, don't clip any closer than a week before your photo shoot, this stops those clipper lines being visible in the photos!

 

If you're having a dog photo shoot, make sure their coat is brushed and they're also clean, if they love getting muddy out on the photo shoot then I'll be there to capture that part of their personality!

Make sure your hair and nails are clean - the devil is in the details!

 

Invite your friends/family!

The more people the merrier in my eyes! You're more than welcome to invite friends/family along to join in your photo shoot, too. Just let me know how many people I can expect. Extra horses and dogs are welcome as well.

 

ASHTON (120)ASHTON (120)

 

Enjoy it!

I know your horse and dog aren't a robot! I'm not expecting them to be statues and perfectly behaved. The whole point of the photo shoot is to capture their true personality, so don't stress if your horse doesn't want to stand still, or your dog would rather chase a squirrel! It's fine, we will still get gorgeous photos!

 

Share your photos everywhere!

Tell everyone what a great time you had, and let the world see you and your dog and horse in all your glory! You're welcome to share your digital files on social media! Your frame will be ready to hang on the wall when you receive it, so make sure you put it up for everyone to see. You are also welcome to share your gallery password and link with friends and family, so they can all see your photos, too!

 

I can't wait to meet you and your horse and dog - and if you haven't booked in yet, take a look at my packages below, or drop me a message and I'll give you a call.

Lexie booked a photo shoot with her gorgeous pony, Humphrey when he had been sold. He was leaving the following week on the Friday, so I managed to get up there on the Thursday to take some photos for them both.

 

Humphrey and Lexie have been together for a few years, they've done lots of eventing (BE100) and pony club, too!

 

They live in a beautiful stone house in the middle of the Peak District near the Manifold Valley, and as usual up there it was raining! Sometimes it's not possible to reschedule, so we rolled with the rain, and actually got some stunning photos of them both. They're some of my favourite images I've ever taken, and I know they will hold a special place in Lexie's heart for her whole life.

 

Lexie & Humphrey (1)Lexie & Humphrey (1)

 

"My photo shoot with Humphrey was such a lovely experience and it was actually some really nice bonding time!
Imogen was so kind and even went to the extent of having a horse neighing app on her phone so we could get the best pictures! The photos came really quickly and in such good condition with lovely wrapping and such a cute little bag of treats for the ponies!
The photos turned out gorgeous and I loved every single one. Overall I absolutely loved the experience and I would 100% recommend Lunar Photography!"

Last year when I was starting up, I did a giveaway, and Lois, the owner of Mouse was one of the lucky winners! It's been a while, but we finally go around to do the photo shoot... which she very kindly gifted to her loaner, Em. 

I've been watching them all season at Springwood, so it was lovely to get to see them all behind the scenes and see what they get up to, and of course capture their relationship at home. 

 

Em & Mouse (33)Em & Mouse (33)
 

 

The yard was absolutely stunning! They are surrounded by beautiful Derbyshire countryside just outside of Matlock, and the autumn colours in October just made the whole thing incredible. I think the grey sky created a lovely soft look on them both, and let the autumn colours really pop in the images!

 

Em & Mouse (162)Em & Mouse (162)

 

"I got gifted a photo shoot with Imogen for after lockdown off the person who I loan mouse off. I loved all the photos Imogen managed to capture of me and mouse and I was completely blown away! I would 100% recommend her to anyone who wants amazing photos!"

Emily got in touch to book a photo shoot after her lovely horse Ashley had been for a visit to the vets. She wanted to make sure she didn't regret not having some lovely photos of them together, so we met at her lovely home in Hulland Ward for her photo shoot back in September. 

 

The views up there were absolutely stunning, coupled with a beautiful evening it was really dreamy. Emily had her sister, mum, and some friends there to help with outfit changes, holding horses, tacking up etc, and it really was a lovely evening!

 

EMILY & FAMILY (160)EMILY & FAMILY (160)

 

It was also the first time she had sat on Ashley for a while, it was really emotional actually, and for me it's these exact moments that photo shoots and making memories with your horses are all about!

 

"When I saw Imogen's work from a tag from my auntie I wasn't sure if I should book a photo shoot or not... but wow! I am glad I did now!


My old boy Ash, the big bay, has had a few health issues over the years and I finally made the decision in September that I would go for it and do the photo shoot. At 23 years old, having had emergency joint flush surgery and hospitalised for a few weeks a couple years ago I feel very lucky to still have him with me.


Unfortunately 6 months after surgery he was diagnosed with a partial tear of his tendon, and I was told I would probably never ride him again. To get back on him for the photo shoot was phenomenal, and Imogen truly captured that moment in photos. The smile on my face says it all, And I think Ashley would have gone for a gallop across the field has he been allowed!

 

EMILY & FAMILY (56)EMILY & FAMILY (56)

 

Imogen had some amazing ticks up her sleeve to get all three boys attention which was proven in the photos where all ears are in the same direction. I honestly couldn't have asked anything more from her. 

Not only are the photos fantastic, but the presentation in person is absolutely beautiful. The leather wallet is a great way to keep the prints safe, and my 16"frame is the perfect size to be mounted in the perfect spot.

I would very highly recommend her to anyone thinking about a photo shoot. Very friendly, patient and more than happy to put time in to help you make the best decision to fit you!"

With the leaves starting to change colour, I popped over to sponsored rider Becky's yard at the beginning of October to do an autumn photo shoot with both her horses together. I've done a photo shoot with both her horses before, but they were at separate times, so it was nice to take some more for her with both of her gorgeous horses involved at the same time.

 

Rio had recently come back from his holiday, as he was turned away a year ago due to an injury, and it wasn't certain if he would be able to be ridden again, so this also felt like a celebration of him coming back home, and starting back into work.

 

The vets have called him a "miracle horse" - they've never seen a horse recover so well from this particular injury before, and I must say it's been a pleasure keeping up with his progress and watching Becky slowly bring him back into work. 

Just the other day she did his first set of "trotting poles" in the school, and he promptly jumped them because he was so excited!

 

BECKY, LUNA & RIO (59)BECKY, LUNA & RIO (59)

 

Luna has had a great season of eventing, they've been rocking the BE90 this season and recently stepped up to BE100. It's been great to see the Lunar Photography logo out at the events, and I have loved the reports I've been getting back from her after every one, and I can't wait to watch them again next year!

 

Obviously, it rained. So we did as much as my camera could handle in the rain, then Becky very kindly let me go for a hack on Luna with her on Rio afterwards!

I went over to Emily's little yard in Mansfield to do a photo shoot with her and her two horses, Charlie & Tottie. 

Emily is so in love with her horses. I don't think I've ever heard someone say "I love you" so much to their horses during a photo shoot. Emily competes in Dressage with Charlie, who used to be a hunter, and his field friend, Tottie is leading a more quiet life these days. 

 

We were treated to a short burst of stunning summer evening light, I managed to get some great photos before it disappeared behind a big grey cloud that evening! Luckily it didn't rain - I am always grateful when it stays dry!

"I have never actually written a review before, but I felt like I need to join everyone in saying what a fab photographer Imogen is.
I absolutely love my photos and I can’t recommend Lunar Photography enough. I have always felt self conscious and a little bit awkward when I’m in front of the camera, and I just felt relaxed and happy on my photo shoot.
I will forever cherish my photos from my shoot of my two babies. Highly recommended!"

What a great photo shoot this was! We did Katie's family dog, Betsy and her horse Calypso in this one. This one was done on her yard at the edge of Shipley Park - and we were treated to another stunning late summer evening. 

 

Betsy is so funny... She does this really silly thing where she runs full pelt and then rolls in the grass, I could watch her do it all day honestly, it just made me laugh so much. I also had to be a bit careful with my camera and lying down as she would run into me when I was taking photos of her, and I had to be careful not to get squished!

 

Can we also take a moment to appreciate the faces she is pulling in the photos!

 

KATIE, CLIP & BETSY (10)KATIE, CLIP & BETSY (10)

 

After we'd done a few with Betsy, we got Clip out his stable and did some with him. Katie has had Clip for 6 years now, and he's come a really long way. It's been a bit of time getting his strength up, and a few problems with his allergies over summer meant they're only just starting to get going this year, but Katie has got loads of fun stuff planned with this handsome boy. She has even let me have a jump on him since we did this photo shoot, which I am super grateful for!

"Imogen is just the best. I hate knowing someone is taking my picture but she made me feel at ease and captured some really special natural moments between me and Clip! I can’t recommend her enough!"

Rosie, Abba & Indie - An Equine Silhouette Photo Shoot

 

IMG_3044IMG_3044

 

These are my favourite type of photos!

 

As you may know, Rosie is one of my sponsored riders. I love getting together for photo shoots with my sponsored girls, it allows me to test out new ideas, and they're always up for trying something different!

 

The end of summer brings some amazing clear sunsets, and as the nights draw in, you don't have to wait until 10pm to capture some photos in them! It is possible to create these all year round... All we need is a clear (ish) sky, and to wait until golden hour (the hour before the sunsets) to do the photo shoot. The same effect can be achieved the our after sunrise, too. 

 

Anyway, I'll let the photos speak for themselves on this one... And maybe this is a personal project I'll do more of next year, I just love equine silhouettes... there is just something special about them!

I was soooo excited when Naomi booked a photo shoot with me! Naomi is a brand ambassador for Digital Horse, that's how we met. I've done a bit of work with digital horse, and more specifically helped them improve their equine photography during lockdown with a photo challenge.

 

Naomi is based over in Lincolnshire Wolds, and it was so worth the drive over there. We had the most stunning summer evening, and I got some really beautiful photos. 

 

NAOMI (237)NAOMI (237)

 

Naomi and her family have a lot of horses at home, from mini shetlands, to top showjumpers, but this time, we did photos of Naomi's four horses. Sophie, Connie, Bang Bang & Dylan. I also squeezed a quick on of her sisters each at the end, too!

 

I also upgrade Naomi's 16" Frame to the BRAND NEW 9 in 1 frame, as she helped me with my new product launch, and provided some great content for me to post over the coming weeks with it.

Isn't it beautiful?! I kid you not it's taken me months to put this together. I've wanted a 9 square frame for ages, and no one did what I wanted, so it's been a case of sourcing all the separate parts, even having it custom made, and putting the final thing together at last.

I must say, when you picture something in your head, and it turns out perfect in real life it's a special moment!

Madi was gifted her photo shoot from her parents for her birthday. What a lovely present! I met Madi earlier in the year when she moved to the same yard as my sponsored rider, Rosie. It's been lovely getting to know her over the last few months, and I know how desperate she was for a photo shoot, so when her mum booked one in for her, I was super excited!

 

The yard they're on is great for farming style backgrounds, so I had a lot of fun with this. It was quite a grey day, but this can create beautiful soft light for the photos, and you don't have to worry about which direction the light in coming from when it's overcast, so you have a lot more options when taking the photos!

 

Dusty is quite a feisty mare to ride, but she was super well behaved for her photo shoot, and a real pleasure to work with!

 

MADI & DUSTY (96)MADI & DUSTY (96)

 

"I had a photo shoot with Imogen as a gift from my parents for my 14th birthday. It was amazing and I will never forget the experience!
Imogen made it not awkward at all, I completely forgot that there was even a camera there. It was really good fun and she was extremely patient with me and my horse. She took so many amazing photos it was really hard to choose from the over 150 she had taken.
When I finally chose my final images Imogen was extremely quick to send me over my digital files, with in the same week I had the text to say my photo prints and frame were ready.
When I got them I was shocked on how beautiful they were. She captured some really special moments which I will treasure forever.

My big framed print is stunning and the photo just fits my room brilliantly. I can’t recommend having a photo shoot with Imogen enough, don’t wait just book it. I can’t wait to have another one. Thank you so much Imogen you’re amazing at your job!"

I had a photo shoot with Julie at their yard in Smalley, back in September. It was such a beautiful summers evening, and Julie wanted a photo with both her ponies, and possibly one with her teenage daughter, Molly!

 

Bella & Digby are two Fell ponies, I've seen them numerous times throughout the season at Springwood Show, so it was nice to get to see them relaxed at home, too. I've known Julie for a while, I actually used to work with her when I worked at Pride Veterinary Centre in Derby, so it was nice to have a catch up again, too!

 

JULIE DIGBY & BELLA (53)JULIE DIGBY & BELLA (53)

 

"I would highly recommend booking a photo shoot, in fact, don't think about it, do it now! I hate having my photo taken but Imogen made the whole experience relaxed and fun. She listened to what I wanted: a nice photo of me and the two ponies and to sneakily take one or two with my reluctant teenage daughter in.
She delivered this and so much more. She perfectly captured their personalities - and even managed to get the "resting b**** face" mare to put her ears forward!
In less than 24 hours I was emailed a link to my gallery of well over 100 photos to choose from. Fabulous, professional service."

Ashton has two horses, Stu, the show cob - he is so handsome! He's been to HOYS, too! And Annie, who Ashton rescued a few years ago. You wouldn't believe how far this big mare has come! She is so lovely! Ashton's little sister Caragh has been riding her at the Springwood Riding Club shows and doing really well throughout this season. I've thoroughly enjoyed watching them progress and can't wait to see what the future holds for all of them.

 

Stu & Annie are kept at a stunning livery yard in Langley Mill, and I was so excited when I saw the big field at the top that we got to go in for the photos! To top it off it was a beautiful evening, and I just love all the photos!

I had a lovely photo shoot with Beth & Crystal up at their beautiful yard in Dronfield. It was your typical Derbyshire old cobbled stone type yard it was beautiful! They're really luckily liveries here, they're allowed to hack all around the farmers field and the views are just incredible!

 

Beth wanted a few photos with her son in as well, which I was more than happy to do! She wanted the special package, but we substituted the digital files for prints  - I am always happy to tailor packages to suit your needs - because she's not really on social media, and she wanted them to eventually be framed and put up in her house!

 

BETH & CRYSTAL (75)BETH & CRYSTAL (75)

 

"I had a photo shoot with Imogen one evening in August with my horse Crystal. I would recommend anyone with horses or dogs to stop thinking about it and just book one, you won’t regret it. 
I hate photos of myself so have hundreds maybe thousands of photos of Crystal but none of us together bar a few goofy selfies.

Imogen put me totally at ease, I didn’t feel like I had to pose for pictures so I didn’t feel uncomfortable, we were just having a chat while she got some beautiful shots. She didn’t even mind when my youngest son age 5 joined us as he requested some for his bedroom wall. 
It was a lovely afternoon getting the shots and when I saw the results I could not pick between the images as I loved so many of them. 

I was overwhelmed with the beautiful presentation of the pictures when they arrived, such attention to detail and my framed picture was hung above my fireplace within 5 minutes. 
I am so happy with the pictures and I will treasure them always. Crystal mean so much to me, and it especially makes me happy to be surrounded by photos of her during this time when I am working from home for the forceable future.
Thank you so much Imogen I wish you so much success with your business as you are lovely, and fantastic at what you do. I will certainly want you to come out again in the future."

CHLOE (129)CHLOE (129)

 

I had a photo shoot with Chloe back in September after meeting them at Springwood Riding Club.

Chloe has a lovely connemara called Kippy, and her lovely welsh pony Gypsy - who is 31 years old! I love seeing people out competing then getting to see their set up at home and what else they get up to. Chloe competes in working hunter, showjumping and various other things with these two.

 

CHLOE (18)CHLOE (18)

 

Their ponies are at home, in a beautiful village in Chesterfield on the edge of Linacre reservoir. We were treated to a lovely warm evening, and got some super cute photos of them all! 

 

CHLOE (93)CHLOE (93)

 

"My daughter had a photo shoot done with her 2 ponies, Imogen was lovely, she took her time to get the right picture, it never felt rushed it was brilliant. We had so many photos to choose from it was so hard as they were all so nice.
Chloe even had a change of clothes, to have some different pictures taken. The whole experience was lovely and I would def recommend."

Beth & Etse (116)Beth & Etse (116)

 

You may have seen my write up about my photo shoot with Beth and her dog walking and training business "Carlen's Companions"... Whilst I was down in London for her branding photo shoot, we decided it would be a nice idea to photograph her and her horse, Etse, too. 

 

Etse has an amazing story, he is a retired carriage horse, and has pulled funeral, wedding and show carriages. It was a serious treat as Beth was very kind and showed me all the carriages they had at the yard once we had finished our photos. They were amazing, there were some really old ones in the barn and it was really amazing to see.

 

Beth & Etse (81)Beth & Etse (81)

 

It was one of the hottest days of the year when we did her photo shoot - we did the dogs early so they didn't get too warm, which meant we ended up doing her & Etse at about 11am. I wouldn't normally do a photo shoot at this time, and in those really warm conditions, but because I was down for the day it wasn't easy to pop back, so we just went with it!

We managed to get some of her on the ground, and some ridden photos to finish off with. 

 

I always ask my clients "What is the one thing that springs to mind when you think of your horse?", and she said his angel wings. Bless him, in his older age he has started going grey on his forehead, and the grey hairs are growing in the shape of two angel wings.

REDONE (140)REDONE (140)

 

I love photographing children and their ponies, there is just something about the cuteness that makes me fall in love with the images even more.

 

I met Faith and her mum Zoey at the first Springwood show I photographed - they had won a voucher from the online show the riding club held during the lockdown. They are stabled at the back of their house in Chesterfield, so it was close by, and we were treated to a really stunning eventing.

 

Faith & Brucie (61)Faith & Brucie (61)

 

Faith does a lot of competing with Brucie, I've actually competed against her myself whilst I've been out riding a friend's pony, Tilly. Which by the way we both won our section in the same class (I won the adults section and Faith won the ponies section!). I really enjoy seeing what they get up to on the weekends, as I love seeing my clients progress and their adventures with their ponies!

"My daughter had a horse photo shoot with Imogen - she is just absolutely amazing at what she does! Not only did she make us feel at ease the photos came out like something off a movie!! Absolutely amazing thanks so so so much! I re booked for my doggies!"

Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire  Photo PouchLunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire Photo Pouch

 

I know how excited you are to see your photos, so I won't keep you waiting very long! 
 

Your final gallery will be edited and complete no later than a week after your photo shoot. 

 

Lunar Photography Equine and Dog Photographer DerbyshireLunar Photography Equine and Dog Photographer Derbyshire

 

Once your final gallery is uploaded to my website, I'll email you a link, with a password so you can view your photos. It is possible to have a private viewing session, too. Just let me know which you would prefer. 

 

Underneath each photo is a code & number, usually something like "Katie & Clip (1)". This makes the whole ordering process easy, as you can just let me know which numbers you'd like to have, depending on your package. 

 

Digital files are sent within 24 hours of payment (or order if they're in the package you've purchased already!), and prints are normally within 2 weeks. If you're close enough for me to deliver them myself, I'll always do that, if not, I'll send them tracked in the post.

One of the things I am proud of is my efficient service - I know a lot of photographers have a 3+ week waiting time for you to get your photos back, and even longer than that for frames and prints. Personally, I'd be going crazy waiting that long to see my photos, which is why I get mine ready ASAP. 

 

I do all my framing myself, so I have a lot of control over the time scale. My products are sourced from various places, so I know no other photographer has the same frames and products as me. Putting them together myself allows me to ensure they're the best quality, it keeps the costs down (so no more paying £800 for a frame!), AND you can be sure that all my love and attention to detail goes into putting your pieces together.

If you're struggling to choose your photos, you can upgrade your package at any time, or you can ask me to pick for you. A lot of clients trust me to put together a complete surprise, and after doing loads of frames this year, I know what works best when framing your photos and putting it all together. You will literally just have to put a nail in your wall and hang your frames where you want them.

 

 

"Imogen was extremely quick to send me over my digital files, within the same week I had the message to say my photo prints & frame were ready.

When I got them I was shocked at how beautiful they were! She captured some really special moments which I will treasure forever.

My big framed print is stunning and it fits in my bedroom perfectly. I can't recommend having a photo shoot with Imogen enough, don't wait, just book it! I can't wait to have another one!

Thank you so much Imogen you are amazing at your job!"

5 tips for photographing black dogs - Lunar Photography, dog photographer Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/10/5-tips-for-photographing-black-dogs---lunar-photography-dog-photographer-derbyshire  

5 TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING BLACK DOGS

 

Lunar Photography Equine and Dog Photographer DerbyshireLunar Photography Equine and Dog Photographer Derbyshire

 

I had an email come through the other day from Victoria over at Spanish Stray Dogs UK, asking for some help with their black dogs. For some reason they don't seem to get rehomed as easily, and she'd asked me to write some quick tips for their audience. 

 

I think there's a bit of a misconception with the black dogs that they might not be as friendly, or they're more dangerous, which obviously isn't true!

They are however, notoriously more difficult to photograph, so I've put these tips together in the hope they'd inspire you to take and share lots of lovely photos of your black doggos.

 

1. CONTRASTING BACKGROUND

Keep things simple, black dogs on a black background can look stunning, but if you really want your doggo to take centre stage, find a contrasting background. Greens, blues, yellows, reds... these sorts of colours will make your black dog stand out from the background, which is exactly what we're going for!

 

2. EYES

Make sure you can see their eyes! Eyes are a window to the soul, and making them easily visible in the photo of your dog helps the viewer feel connected and creates emotion in your image.

 

3. LIGHT

Bright sunlight isn't ideal... If it's directly over head it can create hard shadows under their snout which isn't desirable. Try sitting your black dog in the shade, or even better get your camera out on a cloudy day! Overcast days give a beautiful soft light which is perfect for photos. If you're inside, try sitting your dog near a window, or move outside if it's just not bright enough.

4. GOLDEN/BLUE HOUR

I know you can't always wait for an overcast day (though there are plenty of them in the UK!), so if it is sunny, consider the time of day you're taking the photo at. The hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset can give you some amazing light for photographing in. Golden hour in particular can help you to produce some stunning photos, and is a perfect aid in photographing black dogs.

 

5. INCLUDE A PERSON

I said earlier there can be a misconception with black dogs that they're maybe not as friendly, photographing them having a cuddle with someone can quickly remove that misconception. Even a photo of them playing can convey a bit of personality in the image and change the viewers opinion.

 

BONUS TIP.

Black dogs are great for silhouettes - If you can find a horizon line and shoot towards the sun in golden hour you're definitely onto a winner!

Holly & Hilby - An equine photo shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/holly-hilby---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Holly & Hilby

Holly won her photo shoot as part of my giveaway with Equestrian Life Magazine. 

They are stabled at Derby College Equestrian centre, so I was buzzing to go and take a little look behind the scenes there. They have some beautiful fields round the back, and some really lovely places to stop and take a few photos. 

 

It was clear Hilby is a special boy. Him and Holly have been together for a couple of years now, and they love a bit of eventing! He was a proper poser, and we had an easy time getting his ears forward for the photos. He really soaked up the occasion and definitely knew it was all about him!

 

Holly & Hilby (129)Holly & Hilby (129)

 

At the end of the photo shoot, Holly's sister Beth had just got to 10k followers on instagram, so asked if she could have a photo with her pony, Cookie to mark the occasion. I watched with serious admiration as their mum carved "10K" out of an apple, with their little shetland pony Jimmy  munching up the bits that fell on the floor!

The photo got a lovely response on her instagram - I love seeing my photos being used on social media, it's always lovely to read the nice comments and what other people think of my photos!

CHARLIE (33)CHARLIE (33)

 

It was so lovely to go back to Charlie's yard for the second time to do a photo shoot with her! She had one last year with her two youngsters, they were just yearlings then and my word have they grown! They're really starting to grow up into handsome young horses. I can't wait to keep tabs on their future, because I'm sure they're going to be little super stars!

 

This time Charlie wanted some of her son with his little pony, Star. And whilst we were there I did some of her mum & her horse, Theo, too! 

 

CHARLIE (215)CHARLIE (215)

 

In total there was 5 horses to do... I love capturing the little bits of their personality that makes each of them different, especially the cheeky little babies! Oh and let's not forget Puddle, her dog! We did some of him at the end, too!

 

CHARLIE (266)CHARLIE (266)

 

"All I can say is WOW! Imogen came to do a photo shoot with my boys and she was fantastic! She asked if I had any photos in mind which I did, and she captured them beautifully!

She makes you feel so at ease and relaxed and gets the best photos! 

I would 100% recommend Lunar Photography and will definitely be booking again!"

Oh my word! How bloody cute are these 5 little sausages?!

I was so excited when Zoey asked me to come and take some photos of her gorgeous girls. A few weeks before I'd done a photo shoot with her daughter, Faith & her pony Bruce, so to go back and do her dogs too had me super excited!

 

FLORAL DOXIES (126)FLORAL DOXIES (126)

 

Funnily enough, Zoey only had one sausage dog at the beginning of lockdown, now she has 5! All of them are under 17 months, but they're so well behaved! It's amazing what lock down can do to you... I even ended up getting a lock down puppy. And I'm not going to lie, since seeing Zoey's five girls, it's very tempting to go and get another 3 Jack Russells!

 

I must say I was very impressed and they were an absolute pleasure to work with. They had numerous outfit changes, so they had a nice variety of images with different collars and accessories. It can be quite nice to have little changes like this during your doggie photo shoot, if you're into that kind of thing!

KATIE (6)KATIE (6)

 

Yep, you saw the name Katie twice! It's always fun when a horse and their own share the same name, and it always causes a few giggles.

 

I've known Katie for years... I actually met her the first time (yep the first time!) she broke her back. She contacted me asking for some help with Miffy (the  dark bay mare!) whilst she was out of action. So I used to go and rider her a few times a week. 

 

Tilly (The light bay mare) is a baby, and has just been broken in, whilst Red (the coloured gelding, the poor boy is seriously outnumbered!), is Katies latest edition and she does a bit of jumping with him. From what I gather he's got quite a firey personality! 

 

KATIE (19)KATIE (19)

 

The big grey, Katie, was shared between her & her mum. Katie actually had to have an eye removed not long before I met them all, but it's amazing how well she coped. Continuing her career of jumping and all sorts of activities, including teaching loads of people to ride. She was a big softy, and I was really saddened to hear the other day that she actually passed away. 

I stress this to people all the time, don't keep putting off having a photo shoot with your horse! If something happens you will regret not doing it! I'm so glad this isn't the case here. I know Katie & her mum have some beautiful photos of their gorgeous girl that they will treasure forever!

 

KATIE (147)KATIE (147)

 

"I can’t recommend Imogen highly enough! She took some incredible photos of our horses that I will definitely treasure! She puts you right at ease if you’re feeling nervous/awkward about the process & makes the whole experience really enjoyable! Thanks again for my gorgeous photos!"

Ruth had some photos done with her beautiful big chestnut boy, Jed. You might have read about my other photo shoots from this limited edition day, explaining that I used to work at this yard a few years ago when I had my freelance horse riding business. 

 

Back then, Jed was actually a foal. He was a lot smaller than he is in these photos! It's amazing how horses grow and change, and to see he's still at the same place he was bred is such a lovely thing, too. 

 

Of course, we all love a little family photo, so Peter and Chase were invited to be in a couple as well.

Catherine & Pheonix - An equine photo shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/catherine-pheonix---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

Catherine & Pheonix (36)Catherine & Pheonix (36)

 

Catherine had some photos done as part of a limited edition evening back in July. I ran two separate days of this as so many people were interested!

I've known Catherine for a few years, we used to work at a Yard together back when I did my freelance riding work. In fact, she's still at the same yard now and that was the location of our photo shoot.

 

It was so lovely to meet her new boy, 5 year old Pheonix. He was such a handsome chap, and very good at putting his ears forward for the camera!

 

Catherine & Pheonix (49)Catherine & Pheonix (49)

 

"Imogen was fantastic, she put you at ease and made you feel comfortable. But she also made my horse feel comfortable and calm. I would definitely have another photo shoot with Lunar photography again. The quality of images were amazing, she is definitely talented. 100% would recommend."

CHASE (42)CHASE (42)

 

This cute little doggo had a photo shoot with me as part of my limited edition photo morning back in July. He was 6 months when we did this, and the most well trained puppy I've ever come across!

 

He was an absolute pleasure to work with, sitting and staying where he was told. 

 

CHASE (62)CHASE (62)

 

We went up to the beautiful Hermit's cave in Dale Abbey for this one.

Dale Abbey is a beautiful little village near the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border, I've actually done a blog post about this location before because I visit it often with my own dogs, and all year round it's just a beautiful place to walk and photograph.

Hannah & Billy

 

BILLY (73)BILLY (73)

 

I've honestly never seen a bond so strong.

 

All Billy was interested in during this whole photo shoot was what Hannah was doing, even when he was loose in the school he followed her everywhere. It was a real privilege to capture their relationship in some beautiful images, and I know Hannah will treasure them forever!

 

Hannah won this photo shoot with me when I teamed up with The Everyday Equestrian to run a giveaway. It was hosted over on instagram, and Hannah was the winner! She won my Special photo shoot package, and 12 month annual membership to Alison's online confidence course.

 

BILLY (158)BILLY (158)

 

It was a bit of a grey day, but actually these days can throw up some beautiful soft light, and I think you can see that in these photos.

 

"I just want to say thank you to Imogen for the amazing photo shoot I had with her!

Imogen made us feel at ease and made everything so simple! Billy is special to me and this was the perfect way to capture him and some perfect moments. 

The photos are amazing, and so beautiful, I had a hard time picking my favourite as I love them all! I would definitely recommend Imogen to everybody!"

 

BILLY (100)BILLY (100)

 

You may have seen that I like to hand deliver my frames where possible, and I was lucky enough to watch Hannah open this one. The look on her face is something that made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. She absolutely loved it, and it just goes to show how happy it makes people having something ready to hang on their wall after their photo shoot!

Georgia & Stevie - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/georgia-stevie---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Georgia & Stevie

 

STEVIE (93)STEVIE (93)

 

Oh my word! What a location this was.

 

Georgia had some photos done as part of my limited edition photo morning back in July. She wanted some photos with her gorgeous grey gelding, Stevie, and then some with their lovely little shetland Lulu. 

 

They're kept on her grandad's farm in Dale Abbey, and what a beautiful farm it is.

 

At the back of the horses' paddocks was a big wheat field and at the top of the hill, with the neighbouring farm being home to a beautiful windmill, the back drop was just amazing. I was a little worried as some dark clouds were rolling in, but this made the images even more dramatic and beautiful. Just goes to show you don't always need bright sunshine for beautiful photos!

 

STEVIE (11)STEVIE (11)

 

Whilst I was there I managed to get some of their dog, too. I am always happy to squeeze in extra furries. I got a lovely variety of images for her, it's amazing how many photos I can take in half an hour!

Ellouise & Prince - An Equine Photo Shoot With Lunar Photography https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/ellouise-prince---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography  

Ellouise & Prince

 

PRINCE (6)PRINCE (6)

 

Everyone needs a real life Prince Charming, right? This boy certainly is!

I must admit, I've never seen anyone put so much effort into their turnout for a photo shoot like this young lady did! Ellouise had some photos done as part of my Limited Edition Morning back in July. It was a 30 minute session at their beautiful livery yard in Wingerworth, Chesterfield. 

 

It was a true event, Ellouise had a few of her friends helping her and I could just feel the excitement and buzz as I walked onto the yard!

 

PRINCE (83)PRINCE (83)

 

"Imogen is absolutely incredible when it comes to photography. She makes the whole experience easy and enjoyable, at no point did I feel awkward.

She allows you to choose positions/shots you’d prefer to be captured and is there to do what YOU want. Imogen is also a very reasonably priced photographer, and even the images are a bargain!

I couldn’t be any happier with my first ever shoot, and I can’t wait for my next one over winter with my boy. Get booked in, you will not regret it, and you will NOT be wasting your money!

Thank you for everything Imogen and capturing treasurable memories!"

 

 

I so enjoyed this photo shoot - when I can see how happy the images make someone it really makes my heart sing!

Carlen's Companions - A Doggie Business Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/carlens-companions---a-doggie-business-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography  

Carlen's Companions

 

Carlen's Companions (22)Carlen's Companions (22)

 

Me and Beth met through instagram, and the photo shoot actually got organised off the back of a comment on a mutual friend's instagram post. We were exchanging stories about how we were scared of being at home by ourselves, and she mentioned that she needed some updated photos for her business.

 

Actually reading that back just goes to show one bizarre way in which connections are formed and photo shoots are booked. 

 

Having professional photos for your business can seriously elevate your image across social media, and in particular your website and advertising materials. At the moment I don't offer any "business packages", but it's still something I work with businesses on, and it's also something I'm hoping to make more formal next year. 

 

Carlen's Companions (43)Carlen's Companions (43)

 

This was the furthest I've traveled for a photo shoot to date, and being asked to go down to London felt like a bit thing for me. No pressure though, Beth is super friendly and we had loads of fun, not only doing one for her dog walking & training business, but we did one with her horse, too!

 

It was quite a warm day, so we started early in the morning, with 6 of her client's dogs, and we walked around a lake so that they could all keep swimming and staying cool. I must say the dogs were all really well behaved, they really listened to her and they all had such a good time!

 

If Beth was closer to me I'd definitely be getting her to look after my two boys when I was busy!

 

All the photos were made available to her clients afterwards for them to purchase, too, which was an extra bonus for them!

 

Carlen's Companions (251)Carlen's Companions (251)     Carlen's Companions (235)Carlen's Companions (235)

 

"I booked both a branding and an equine shoot and Imogen was amazing on both. Came all the way out to London, to get shots of the dogs, she was a big hit with them, and even managed to avoid being bundled over!  She knew all the tricks to get my horses ears forwards (Which can be hard as he knows most tricks!). The shots from both are amazing! She was friendly and easy to talk to, I highly recommend and look forwards to booking another one with her soon!"

What happens on your photo shoot day? Lunar Photography, Equine Photographer Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/what-happens-on-your-photo-shoot-day-lunar-photography-equine-photographer-derbyshire  

What happens on the day of your equine photo shoot?

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (31)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (31)

 

On the day of your equine photo shoot, I imagine you'll be making all the last minute preparations before I arrive. We would have already agreed a date, time and location, so use the time before to get your horse looking nice and clean!

 

Remember I don't use photo shop, so I can't edit out any poo stains or muddy patches, and preparing your horse like you would for a show gives your final gallery that extra wow factor. 

 

When I arrive you're welcome to show me around your yard, or I'll have a quick scout of the location myself to see where the best places to position you and your horse will be. It's worth asking your yard owner where they will be happy for us to use during our photo shoot - you never know, they might just let you go into a different spot for a photo that is normally out of bounds!

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (53)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (53)

 

Once I've said hello to everyone, we will start taking photos. In between we can change from head collar to bridle, or tack up if you'd like some riding pictures. Don't forget you can also have a couple of outfit changes if you like, too! It's really just a case of having a chat, moving around and doing a few different poses along the way. Don't worry, nothing super model-ish, just you and your horse having a cuddly moment together and I'll be there to capture it!

 

Photo shoots normally last between 1 - 2 hours, but I don't really time them because some horses get bored easily, and others want ridden photos as well which takes a bit longer, but it really is down to you and what you would like. I'll always ask if you can think of anything else before we finish, and once I get home, I'll start combing through the images and putting together your final gallery.

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (47)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (47)

 

Your photos are usually ready within 5 days of your photo shoot, so you don't have to hold in the excitement of seeing your images for too long! More on what happens after in a separate blog post. 

 

It's really an occasion to get excited about - It's all about having fun and making lovely memories, so don't be worried about it. It's definitely something you will LOVE doing and at the end you will wonder why you didn't have a photo shoot with your horse sooner!

10 Reasons To Have An Autumn Equine Photo Shoot - Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/9/10-reasons-to-have-an-autumn-equine-photo-shoot---lunar-photography-derbyshire 10 reasons to have an equine photo shoot in autumn

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)

 

1. Earlier Sunsets

Earlier sunsets mean no late nights trying to get that golden glow. Golden hour photos are truly stunning, and with the nights drawing in we don't have to wait until 9pm to get them!

 

2. Not as many flies!

When the temperature drops, so does the fly population. Your horse will be much more comfortable during their photo shoot when they're not getting pestered by those tickly flies!

 

3. Autumn Leaves

Who doesn't love a picturesque autumn woodland photo shoot? Those beautiful brown crispy leaves make beautiful back drops for photos!

 

4. You won't be sweating!

We all love a summer photo shoot, but occasionally England can take it a bit too far, resulting in us all being a hot mess! Autumn brings the best of both worlds, beautiful days with the temperature being just right.

 

5. Crisp mornings

Autumn also brings slightly cooler mornings, and if you're willing to get up a bit earlier for your photo shoot, you might just be rewarded with a beautiful sunrise & crisp autumn morning.

 

Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)Lunar Photography Equine Photographer Derbyshire Equine Portfolio (2)

 

6. Woolly jumpers!

Now it's not boiling hot, you can style yourself in a comfy pullover, jeans and long boots. Or maybe your favourite coat for a bit of a twist?

 

7. Woolly ponies!

If you don't clip your horse yet, leaving them woolly for a photo shoot can give a really nice cute & cuddly look to your final gallery.

 

8. Clipped ponies!

If you do clip your horse, they can look super smart for their photo shoot if you clip them, too!

 

9. You aren't quite as busy!

A lot of you will be coming to the end of your eventing season, and so your horses will be looking in tip top shape, but you won't be competing every weekend, leaving more time for us to fit in a photo shoot.

 

10. Softer light makes your skin look smoother

I always say that bright sunshine isn't ideal for photo shoots despite what most people think. Overcast and grey days create beautiful soft light that makes your skin look softer that if you were stood in bright sunshine. 

 

I've got a few weekend spaces left in October & November, and it's just a £30 deposit to secure your date. Prices range from £95 - £375.

High Res Vs Low Res images - What's the difference? Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/high-res-vs-low-res-images---whats-the-difference-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

High Res Vs Low Res

 

Molly (1)Molly (1)

 

This is something you will see a lot when it comes to photographers, so I thought I'd explain the difference.

 

High Res

 

High Res files are often larger file sizes, they're full quality that is the same as the file taken straight on the camera, most likely edited by the photographer to a degree.

When you buy a high res file from me, it's more expensive (mine are £20 each) because you're also buying the license to print this photo off yourself. It's worth mentioning though that if you do this, you're responsible for the quality of the final print. Us photographers have access to printing labs that the general public don't, and this generally means the quality is much better than if you got it printed cheap somewhere such as snapfish.

 

Please note, this doesn't give you permission to change that image in any way, that includes cropping, or turning it into black and white.
You wouldn't buy a painting from an artist and then add your own bit of paint to it, would you? Same goes for photos, it's our work and you can't just edit it (yes that includes instagram filters!) without permission first. If you do this, you may be asked to take it down, or charged again for that photo. We take so much pride in our work, and our style, and slapping an instagram filter on one of our photos is actually really offensive, and it makes us feel like you don't like it.

 

Most photographers are happy to work with you if you want an image cropping a certain way, or turning into black and white. I am more than happy to help with anything like this. The same applies to low-res images.

 

Charlotte & ACE (6)Charlotte & ACE (6)

 

Low Res

 

Low res files normally look the same, but the file size has been compressed, and therefore the quality. You'll often find they're prefect for sharing on social media etc, but if you tried to print them they would be blurry - these are also much cheaper (mine are £5 for example), so you are not buying the license to print them yourself.

My low res files also come with a little watermark on them in a bottom corner, too. 

 

It's probably worth mentioning here that all my prints come with a free low res file, so you can have the print and you can share it on social media.

What do we do if it's raining on your photo shoot day?

 

Photo 25-04-2020, 08 33 36Photo 25-04-2020, 08 33 36

 

Oh the glorious British weather! You never quite know what you're going to get. For example, the week before last I was complaining (yes I am one of those people!) that it was a bit too warm, then last week it just rained, and rained, and rained. You just couldn't write it. 

 

All of my photo shoots last week got moved to another day because of the weather. No one wants soggy photos, do they?

 

REDONE (65)REDONE (65)

 

If it is supposed to rain, we can just reschedule your photo shoot for a day to suit us both, hopefully a brighter day at that. This comes at none extra cost to you - Like I said, no one wants a soggy photo shoot, and my camera isn't a fan of rain, either!

 

If for some reason you can't reschedule, I am happy to work between showers. There is never a time limit on my photo shoots, so if it means we end up doing little and often over a course of an afternoon and evening, that's fine, too!

 

I'll usually check in with you the day before your photo shoot, anyway, and I'll always see how you're feeling about the weather forecast. If it's a showery day, I'll give you up to a couple hours before to decide if you want to reschedule, or if you're happy to go ahead and work between showers. It's normally entirely up to you. 

 

Rosie & Violet (4)Rosie & Violet (4)

 

Whatever you decide, I know we will get beautiful photos for you that you will love forever!

Jo & Jimmy

Jo had some photos done as part of my limited edition photo day. Her sister actually bought this session for her as a birthday present, what a lovely gift!

 

Jimmy is a beautiful bay gelding, who Jo does a bit of everything with. They had their photo shoot at their livery yard, as you can see they had a beautiful long driveway, and the light was so lovely we got some really stunning shots. You'll be surprised how photogenic your yard can be! Also I think what really stands out here is their relationship. You can just feel how close these two are by looking at the photos!

 

JIMMY (84)JIMMY (84)

 

"I've wanted a photo shoot with Jimmy for as long as I can remember, but I've always put it off because I don't like full length pictures of myself.

I always knew Jimmy would look handsome, but I was convinced I would ruin the pictures.

I absolutely love these photos though and no longer feel ashamed of myself - although his face definitely does steal the limelight! 

I can't recommend Lunar Photography enough - Imogen had loads of tricks and ideas to get Jimmy's attention, and managed to capture some beautiful photographs even with him being a pain and not wanting to stand still!"

Alfie - A Puppy Photo Shoot With Lunar Photography, Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/alfie---a-puppy-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire  

Alfie

 

ALFIE (30)ALFIE (30)

 

I think the first image says it all! I love puppy photo shoots! They're just the best. Especially Jack Russell puppies as they're my favourite!

 

I actually met Bec on instagram, through my dogs instagram (@charlesthejrt). I noticed she wasn't too far away from me, and she actually got Alfie just 2 weeks after I got Albert (my Jack Russell puppy!), so she was commenting on all my pictures and saying how excited she was to get her new little puppy!

 

ALFIE (43)ALFIE (43)

 

She saw my offer for my limited edition photo shoot, and decided she'd love to have some done of him when he was ready, so we ended up meeting at Secure Paws in Derby for this photo shoot. It wasn't long after Alfie was allowed to go out for walks, so we felt it was safer to do this photo shoot in a secure environment, so we didn't have to worry about him toddling off anywhere!

 

Secure fields can make great photo shoot locations if you're worried about your dogs recall, too. It makes the whole thing much less stressful if your dog isn't great off the lead, and most only cost £10 or so for an hour. You'd be surprised how many there are around as well!

 

ALFIE (71)ALFIE (71)
 

 

I captured some lovely photos of Alfie having loads of fun exploring the field, and I obviously enjoyed loads of puppy cuddles during the photo shoot as well. 

 

"They're all so amazing! I don't know how I'm going to pick my favourite!"

Zoe, Alex & Dinky

I can't tell you how excited I was to do this! For those of you that don't know, Zoe is the owner and editor of Equestrian Life Magazine. Basically the biggest equestrian magazine in Derbyshire, and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to do a photo shoot for them!

 

Me and Zoe had been chatting a lot on instagram, and I'd just written an article for her magazine about why it's important to have a photo shoot done with your horse. Turns out I went to school with her daughter, Alex. We actually used to catch the same bus every day! It is such a small world!

 

EL (8)EL (8)

 

Anyway, Alex kindly lent her mum her rather large horse "Dinky", to have some photos with, and whilst I was there, we took some of Alex with him, and her dogs (Fig and Rhubarb), too!

 

EL (175)EL (175)

 

It was a gorgeous yard in the beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside, in the village of Harlaxton. Not far from where I used to live with mum mum before I moved to South Africa. I always feel so nostalgic driving in that area, because it reminds me of being a little child again. Growing up sucks! But we all knew that already.

 

"That wasn't awkward at all actually, it was just like I was chatting to a friend whilst having my photo taken! Imogen is very talented!"

Bentley - A Dog Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/bentley---a-dog-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire  

Bentley

 

BENTLEY (41)BENTLEY (41)

 

Bentley is a lovely Parson's terrier that belongs to some friends of mine. We booked this photo shoot way back at the beginning of the year, and I can't believe how quickly it came around! Just goes to sow how lockdown has some how managed to make time seriously fly!

 

We met up at the edge of Shipley Park on a Sunday morning for this one, I'm so lucky to have such a beautiful photo shoot location right on my doorstep. I know it so well, I know where all the quiet areas are that are perfect for a photo shoot, and especially as Bentley is a typical terrier, we took him to a place with long grass and paths, so we could see any oncoming doggos before he could.

 

BENTLEY (19)BENTLEY (19)

 

We had loads of fun! I have a back up ball in my bag, so we started throwing that for him and we got some awesome photos of him in action. Tom and Jodi really love my flying photos, and seeing as there was a woods on the edge of the field, we found a branch and put it over the path for him to jump. It was like a game of piggy-in-the-middle! Jodi and Tom throwing the ball to each other and Bentley jumping the log as he ran back and forth.

 

He was absolutely knackered bless him, but with the more crazy doggos, I get more out of them getting the action shots first and letting them burn off some steam. So once he was a bit calmer, I got some of him sitting nicely like a good doggo.

 

I love little terriers! They're so full of personality and I just love how cheeky they can be. Their ability to chase things is just incredible, I think he would still be going now if we didn't stop throwing the ball!

Emily & Tessa

 

REDONE (93)REDONE (93)

 

I've known these two for a while now, I actually got some photos of them both as part of my first ever paid photo shoot when I did Rosie's horses. Emily is Rosie's sister and so with hardly any photo shoots booked in during lock down, we decided to meet in the park and do one with her lovely piebald mare, Tessa.

 

 

Tessa (Also known as whale), is a beautiful mare, even though she does often have her ears back when you try and give her a cuddle. She has had a few problems over the last couple years, and it's been a fine balancing act for Emily managing laminitis and a tendon injury.

 

REDONE (63)REDONE (63)

 

It was so lovely to get these photos for her, we go through so much with our horses, they can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster at times, and sometimes I feel like looking at beautiful photos like these makes you feel like it's all worth while.

 

“I would highly recommend Imogen if you are thinking of having a photo shoot!

She took the most beautiful photos of my horse a few weeks back, they really are photos I’ll treasure and be able to look back on in the future!

Also I really hate having my photo taken and was quite nervous, but once you are there, Imogen is so laid back it makes you for you’re having your photo taken!

Thank you so much for my beautiful photos!”

I made my first charity donations! Lunar Photography - Equine and dog photographer https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/i-made-my-first-charity-donations-lunar-photography---equine-and-dog-photographer I did it! I made my first charity donations! 

You can read more about how my charity donations work below!

 

Podenco Project - Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer Derbyshire - #PodencoProjectPodenco Project - Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer Derbyshire - #PodencoProject

 

I'm so thrilled to be writing this. I always try and give back and help as much as I can, and when giving this some thought it felt like the right thing to do.

This idea actually came to me last year, but between starting everything up and everything else a new business entails, I didn't finalise anything.

I wanted to make sure I supported local charities with this, ones where I could go and see the difference, contribute with photos and know they would be so grateful for the donation.

 

So, from 1st July, every photo shoot I do, £5 out of the fee will go to one of my chosen charities. If you have a dog photo shoot, it will be going to Sarah's Foster Dogs in Need Of Homes. 

You can read all about them HERE.

If you have an equine photo shoot, the donation will be going towards Moo Haven Equine Rescue.

You can read all about them HERE. 

If you have a mixture of both, you can decide where you're money goes, or you can split it if you like.

 

Photo 03-05-2020, 16 48 16Photo 03-05-2020, 16 48 16

 

How it will work is that at the end of the month I will see how many photo shoots I've done, split into equine and canine, them times that number by the £5 and I'll be donating that amount to the charities.

 

On each of the relative pages, you will see a link to make a further donation. Please consider this, or if not consider donating toys, blankets, rugs, unused horse tack or whatever you think you might spare.

 

These guys do some incredible work, and I can't wait to keep you updated with whats going on at these amazing rescues!

I've had the privilege of watching this gorgeous girl grow up over the last year or so. We did her first photo shoot not long after her injections were due, and we've done lots of photo shoots in between!

 

"She loves to sit in the car and people watch. She comes down the yard and sits on the passenger seat like a little human and just watches the world go by!"

This is true, I have seen her do this and it makes me laugh every time!

Rosie, Indie & Abba

I LOVED THIS PHOTO SHOOT!

 

I'm sorry but that definitely needed to be written in capitals. Rosie is my sponsored rider (although she wasn't when we did this photo shoot!), and during lock down we met in Shipley Park to do this photo shoot. As soon as we were allowed to do outdoor exercise with another person we met in the middle. Rosie's horses are the other side of the park to me, and it's quite easy for us to meet for a photo shoot there.

 

So it was bluebell season, and I missed it last year. I'd only just started doing my photography, so quite frankly my photos were rubbish then and I didn't make the most of the opportunity at all, and I didn't want the virus to take away the opportunity for me this year too.

 

I must say some of these photos are among my favourites ever! I just love the splash of purple in them!

5 Ways To Keep Your Dogs Cool During This Heat - Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/5-ways-to-keep-your-dogs-cool-during-this-heat---lunar-photography-derbyshire 5 ways to keep your dog cool during the heat wave

 

Carlen's Companions (214)Carlen's Companions (214)

 

Wow we've had some tropical weather lately for the UK. Not that I'm complaining but it has been bloody hot! 

So, I thought I'd share 5 ways I keep my dogs cool, in case you hadn't thought of them yet.

 

 

1. Walk your doggos early in the morning, or late in the evening.

I'm not one for getting up early since the lock down, but I have a couple of times this last week to walk the boys before it got too hot. A little tip you can do is putting the back of your hand on the pavement, if you can't hold it there for 5 seconds without burning yourself, it's definitely too hot to walk your doggos. 

 

 

2. Give them a cooling bath or take them for a swim.

My doggos HATE having a bath, but I do it for their own good when it's really hot. I put the shower on a tepid temperature and they come out feeling much cooler afterwards. We are also lucky enough to have a lovely swimming spot for them not too far from home, I can park up and it's two fields walk away, so they don't have to go on the hot pavement.

 

 

3. Damp a towel down for them to lie on, or buy a cooling mat.

Giving them a damp towel to lie on works wonders, I also picked up a cooling mat from Aldi the other week, they're super cheap and are amazing. Sometimes I sit on it myself!

 

 

4. Try freezing treats, or a carrot for example.

The one thing I do a lot of - you can easily pick up toys that can be filled with water and frozen ready for a heatwave. I also fill the boys KONGs with their Forthgalde food, and freeze it. You can fill KONGS with peanut butter, and pretty much anything. You can give them ice cubes, frozen carrots, or whatever you like. Frozen things definitely cool them down nicely.

 

 

5. Make sure they have fresh water available at all times.

It seems obvious, but when it's hot, your doggos will drink more. So make sure you check the water levels more often, and keep it fresh, cool and topped up. 

 

Do you do anything else to keep your dogs cool in this heat? Let me know in the comments!

Liz booked a photo shoot with her two dogs after she lost her dog before. She regretted not booking one with her old dog, so she got in touch and booked the EXTRA SPECIAL photo package for her two boys up at Linacre Reservoir in the Peak District.

 

I've done a photo shoot here before, it is a truly stunning location, so off we went for a walkies around the reservoirs, the surrounding woodland and the occasional grass openings.

 

PADDY & TODD (68)PADDY & TODD (68)

 

These two little dogs were so well behaved! Being a fellow Jack Russell owner, I was surprised at how well behaved they were, they just walked next to their mum the whole time, always checking where she was.

 

It was a lovely summer evening, perfect for some photos to my delight. It's always a bonus in the UK when your photo shoot days fall on good weather days, too!

 

Paddy was the more confident of the two, strutting his stuff for the camera and happily coming to me for some cheese (cheese is a great bribary tool for a photo shoot by the way!), and after a while Todd eventually felt like I was nice enough for him to come close to.

 

They are two rescue dogs, so both boys were definitely happier with their mum.

 

PADDY & TODD (147)PADDY & TODD (147)

 

 

Me and Liz had such a lovely chat, about all things dogs and horse. It's great when you have these two things in common because you're never short of conversation. Not that I'm ever short for conversation mind!

 

I really enjoyed this photo shoot, it was so relaxed, we didn't pass too many other people, and after a couple of hours of walkies with the boys, I was satisfied we had plenty of gorgeous photos of them. In fact, Liz couldn't choose, and ended up upgrading to my ALL INCLUSIVE photo package (the one where you get every single one of your digital files! There were over 200 in her final gallery!). She even ordered some extra prints & frames for her nana!

Raylin & Contessa 

 

How gorgeous is this little girl! She's a 5 month old foal that has been homebred by a friend of mine in Noordhoek, Cape Town. This girl has some serious breeding and has a bright future ahead of her in their capable hands.

 

I've been following her progress on instagram since the day she was born, and I couldn't wait to do a photo shoot with her whilst I was out there. Boy did she put on a show for me! She was having the time of her life and I'm so glad I got to capture her sweet little personality running around and having a joyful time.

I can wait to follow her future, and do another photo shoot when I go back so we can look back and see how much she's grown! 

 

"Would highly recommend Lunar Photography! Imogen is very professional and takes pride in taking beautiful photos. She is super good with animals and my horses were giving her quite the show! Thank you so much! Can’t wait for my prints!!"

A Valentines Photo Shoot - Rosie & Voilet
 

 

As if their names could be any more perfect for a Valentine's photo shoot! 

I had the best time doing this, it's amazing how a little prop can completely change a photo shoot. This was my first ever 'themed' photo shoot!

 

I knew it was Valentine's day coming up, so I popped to Morrisons and bought a bunch of roses for this one and met Rosie & Violet in the beautiful Shipley Country Park. 

 

Rosie & Violet (8)Rosie & Violet (8)

 

This has been on my location bucket list for a while now. I've photographed dogs here, but always wanted to do an equine photo shoot! 

 

Anyway, straight to it, here's the results. I love them, and Rosie loved them too.

"Do you have insurance?" - Lunar Photography, Equine and dog photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/-do-you-have-insurance---lunar-photography-equine-and-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire  

"Do you have insurance?"

 

Absolutely! Having previously owned a freelance horse riding business, I know how important it is to have appropriate insurance. Working with and around horses can be a high risk business, and it's so easy for accidents to happen quickly! 

So, yes, I have insurance, and I take the issue of safety very seriously.

 

I've worked with horses and ridden myself for over 20 years now, so I know them well, and I'll always advise against a certain pose if I feel like it's too risky! I will always ask you to be honest and sensible with your posing requests as well, this is with horses and dogs.

 

For example, if your dog doesn't have great recall, I'll always suggest hiring a secure field. There are plenty around, they make lovely photo shoot locations, and it just takes the stress out of worrying about your dog running off.

 

The main aim of my photo shoots is for us to have FUN! Not only do I want you to come away with stunning photos, but it's important to fully enjoy the experience and make memories with your horse and dog on the day, too! So, in the name of fun, we will always put safety first!

Ruby - A dog photo shoot with Lunar Photography - Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/ruby---a-dog-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography---dog-photographer-in-derbyshire  

Ruby

 

RUBY (7)RUBY (7)

 

Ruby is actually one of Rosie's mum's dogs, and I've done quite a few photo shoots with her over the last year or so!

 

Ruby is your typical border collie - absolutely crazy and full of energy, and she absolutely loves the camera. So much so, we have a joke that she's the best photo bombing dog! If you go out with multiple dogs, and you shout another back, she always gets in front of them and steals the picture!

 

RUBY (1)RUBY (1)

 

Ruby also absolutely loves water, too, although I haven't picked any of her water photos to show you here. She's super fast and you know how much I love crazy doggos!

Becky & Luna - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/becky-luna---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Becky & Luna

 

In September last year I went back to Yew Tree Farm in Hazelwood to photograph Becky and her new horse Luna. 

 

I'd photographed Becky and her other horse Rio earlier this year, and when Luna arrived she contacted me to go and do another photo shoot for her. 

 

Becky & Luna (6)Becky & Luna (6)

 

Unfortunately Rio got injured at their most recent event and he now has to have a year of field rest - unfortunately this means they will miss out on their Badminton Grass Roots qualification, and after seeing them do so well this year it's truly heart breaking. The good news is that hopefully Rio will make a full recovery as a happy hacker, or possibly a hunter.

 

Luckily for Becky they've been able to buy Luna, and wow what a gorgeous girl she is! She's a 5 year old Irish Sports Horse with a really mischievous personality. I just love the baby horses and seeing their 'child like' traits, and because of this we had to keep the photo shoot moving swiftly because she would easily get bored. She couldn't quite understand why she was in a field but not eating or playing with her friends!

Becky & Luna (4)Becky & Luna (4)

 

It's incredible how after only a few months their partnership has blossomed, I will be keeping a close eye on this pair and their progress over the coming years, and hopefully see them at Badminton where they belong! 

 

"Imogen is so lovely and patient to work with, she was very patient with my youngster who had a few baby moments. She fitted us in really well and was very flexible. I'd already had a previous photo shoot with my other horse and they were stunning  pictures I just had to have her back for some more!"

Lucy

 

LUCY (7)LUCY (7)

 

This was another photo shoot I did whilst back visiting friends and family in Cape Town. Lucy was meant to be a Jack Russell... but is definitely cross with something else... we think it's Corgi as she definitely has the Corgi butt!

 

Lucy is actually a family dog, but I couldn't resist doing a photo shoot with her whilst I was there, especially in such a stunning location!

 

We started off doing some in the garden, and then went down to the beach to do some more. I like to try and get as much variety in my images as possible!

 

"Lucy is very sweet natured... but for some reason when she is on a lead she thinks she has super powers and starts trying to attack all the other dogs!"

Luckily, she was perfectly well behaved off the lead and the beach wasn't very busy so we got some lovely photos of her.

 

LUCY (2)LUCY (2)

 

"Imogen is so talented! The photos capture Lucy's personality perfectly... She loves the beach so much and we had so much fun during the photo shoot! We absolutely love our photos. Imogen took so many and we will love them forever!"

Charlotte & Ace

 

Charlotte & ACE (5)Charlotte & ACE (5)

 

I met Charlotte last year when she worked in my dad's pub, we soon found out we had a lot in common including our love of horses. She'd decided to move to Amsterdam this year, and because she was leaving Ace with her friend for the couple of years she was away, she wanted a photo shoot before she went. 
 

 

Charlotte & ACE (3)Charlotte & ACE (3)

 

Charlotte has owned Ace for 10 years - she showed me the sweetest picture of her when she was a little teenager when they went and bought him. They really have this amazing bond and it was so evident in the final images of them both. 

"He loves scampi fries... If we ever go to the pub on a ride I will buy him a bag to eat. He also loves deer, I think that he thinks he is one of them!"

 

Charlotte & ACE (1)Charlotte & ACE (1)

 

"I had the loveliest photo shoot with Imogen recently. Not only did I end up with the most gorgeous photos of my horse, the whole thing was really fun and Imogen has such a great way with animals. Would highly recommend Immy! The only issue is, my house is going to look like a shrine to my horse as I can’t pick my favourites so I’ll just have them all framed!"
 

 

I wish them both the best of luck in Amsterdam - I'm so grateful to have captured their relationship in beautiful images, and I must admit these are some of my favourites I've ever taken!

We had such a lovely evening doing this photo shoot. Steve bought his family along so it was a lovely evening for them all to be a part of. The kids had a great time running around the fields, and so did Bruce!
 

BRUCE (5)BRUCE (5)

 

I love Frenchies, their facial expressions always make me laugh. 

 

The light was perfect, and Bruce was just mega to photograph.

I love a crazy dog - it gives me chance to get the all important flying dog photo!

 

I actually took my two dogs along to this one, with their permission, so Bruce had someone to run around with and to chase. The dogs all had a great time and so did we.

Alex & Chiz - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/alex-chiz---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Alex & Chiz

 

I met Alex through my old job working at the vets, and she asked me to go and do a photoshoot of her and her gorgeous boy, Chisum. Chiz is a very 'cool dude' and is so chilled.

 

"He's obsessed with pom pom hats. One time we were at a show and he spotted a mini pony, he wouldn't move for a solid 5 minutes. He was just completely facinated by these tiny creatures."

 

 

Park Farm Livery in Risley is just an absolutely stunning location, they're allowed to ride in rolling green fields with tremendous views, it really is a stunning yard! 

 

 

CHIZ (1)CHIZ (1)

 

 

Not long ago Chis suffered a stifle problem which meant he only had a 50% chance of returning to work, and it's only through her dedication and hard work that he's one of the lucky ones that has returned to work!

 

I was so thrilled when she wanted a photo shoot because it gave me the opportunity to give her something that she can really cherish. The evening light was gorgeous and the other people on the yard were so friendly. 


CHIZ (5)CHIZ (5)

 

 



"Imogen is amazing! so patient when my horse was not looking the right way at all! But super quick when he was and got the pictures without hanging around. she was also SO quick at getting the pictures back to me and I love all of them. the lighting is perfect, she knows how to position you whilst not making you feel at all awkward, would recommend to everyone!"

Molly

 

Molly (6)Molly (6)

 

I love this little dog so much. She is such a happy girl, and she LOVES sticks. In case you didn't notice... Nearly all the photos I have of her she has a stick in her mouth.

 

Jack Russells are my favourite, I don't hide that one bit. I do love all dogs obviously but these little dogs are so full of personality! I also have two myself.

 

Dog photo shoots usually involve me simply coming for a walk with you. This one was in Stanley Common - A village in Derbyshire that has some amazing fields nearby. If you ever get chance to walk here, you really should go!

 

Molly also loves water, her mum gets a paddling pool out for her on hot days and she spends loads of time in it. Also, if you don't throw her stick she will stare at you and make these really cute little noises until you throw it for her.

I don't think I will ever forget this photo shoot!

 

I did a photo shoot with Hannah & Sunshine on Noordhoek beach when I visited South Africa in February 2020. You might not know I used to live in Cape Town during my teenage years, so we go back as often as possible to visit friends and family. Of course, I couldn't go all that way and not do a photo shoot on one of the most incredible locations in the world.

 

Yep, I said it. In the world.
I don't think there are many equine photo shoot locations that will top this one. And to be there at sunset was just incredible.



Hannah & Sunshine  (4)Hannah & Sunshine (4)

 

Hannah got Sunshine a few years ago, he's a cheeky little chappy and they enjoy eventing and compete in various disciplines.

 

"My friends call him "sledge hammer" because he likes to knock people with his head. I also can't practice my dressage tests because he remembers what to do, and starts doing the movements before I ask, and he hates being told what to do!"

 

 

Hannah & Sunshine  (5)Hannah & Sunshine (5)

I must say Sunshine spent the whole photo shoot looking at any opportunity to nibble Hannah, which resulted in lots of giggles.

 

"Imogen took some amazing photos of me and my pony on the beach.
They are so amazing and so gorgeous!
Thank you so much!"

I wanted to talk about my photo frames today. My beautiful photo frames! And they are beautiful.

There's just something about having a framed print, and something about me being able to give you a framed print, all ready for your wall or side board. It just makes me feel so lovely, and the look on people's faces when they open it is just what I live for!

 

Every one of my photo packages comes with a 16" framed print (A3 size!). I felt like it was important to offer this as part of my packages, because I don't think that people always see the value in a framed print. Usually people want digitals, or if they do get a print they just get the print and frame it themselves. Then their print arrives, and they forget all about it, and it never gets framed.

 

So, I took the liberty to do that for you. And yes, I do all my framing myself. It keeps the costs down, and I enjoy it so much. It gives me chance to make sure I'm 100% happy with the print quality, and the frame quality, before it's (in most cases) hand delivered to you. 

There are four different colour frames to choose from, White with silver trim, oak, white with oak trim, and silver! Of course, if you wanted something different I can pretty much get anything, but most people are happy with these options and the colours go great with your horse or dog photos.

 

FRAMESFRAMES

 

Aside from the 16" version that comes included in your photo package of choice, you can purchase an extra one in the same size, or in 12" if you'd like. The 12" comes with the option to stand on a sideboard, where the 16" comes with a wall hanger only.

 

Then there is my 4-in-1 frame (pictured below!), this is super quality! It's 12 x 12" square and holds 4 6x4"photos, or you could have 12x12" square picture if you'd like instead!

How do dogs help us? Lunar Photography, Dog photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/how-do-dogs-help-us How dogs help us

 

BRUCE (4)BRUCE (4)

 

There really is nothing better than snuggling up with your fury best friend on the sofa. It just seems to make all our troubles disappear, right? 

There have been so many scientific studies showing how dogs can help us mentally and physically, and I can say from first hand experience it's all true. Even if I'm having the worst day, my little Jack Russell Terrier, Charlie, seems to make it all better with just one snuggle.

LUCY (4)LUCY (4)

 

So how do dogs specifically help us humans?

Dogs are a big stress reliever. Cuddling or stroking a dog has been scientifically proven to reduce the levels of stress hormones in our blood. I know if I'm having a bad day, giving Charlie a good squeeze makes me feel loads better.

Looking into a dogs eyes releases the hormone oxytocin, which is the human love hormone. That's why I love Charlie so much...

They relieve loneliness ... I am currently at home a lot on my own during the lock down, as my partner is a key worker, yet I never feel alone because I always have Charlie with me. Is it weird that I talk to my dog? I don't think so. He knows all my secrets.

 

Molly (4)Molly (4)

 

They give us structure and routine. Having a dog can be a big commitment, but I love the routine we have at home. To be honest my life revolves around Charlie. Giving him his breakfast, taking him for a walk every day, play time and giving him his dinner. He gives me something to get out of bed for in the mornings.

Dogs encourage us to exercise. Some dogs need more exercise than others, but they all love a walkies none the less. Getting out and exploring with our dogs can increase our physical well being and burn a few calories in the process! I walk Charlie for at least an hour every day, usually on my lunch break at work. If I don't get out with him, I notice my mood is a little more grumpy than usual.

Dogs increase our social activity. Getting out and walking with our dogs in the park can help us meet new people and make new friends. If our dog starts playing with another dog, it's highly likely you will engage in some sort of social interaction with the other dog owner, even if it's just a smile. Which can really boost someone's mood by the way.

 

LUCY (7)LUCY (7)

 

Dogs in the office can increase productivity and employee well being. I personally take my dog into the office with me, In fact we have two dogs in our office. This has been scientifically proven to increase productivity and reduce stress levels of people at work, too! 

Other than the above reasons, dogs have turned their paws to many other jobs that help us. Guide dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs and the rest! Having a dog in your family can teach children care and responsibility, too! 

The conclusion: Everyone should have a dog. They're really good for you!

Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer in Derby https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/why-choose-prints-over-digital-files-lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer-in-derby How often do you open up that childhood album and go through those old film camera photos? How amazing is it to hold memories in your hands, the smell of the old photo paper, the ones where you had the flash on and everyone's eyes are red? They're not only great because they're memories, but they're great because they're tangible.

 

They're an object. A memory you can hold in your hand that makes you feel nostalgic for your childhood and the good old times.

 

These days everything is a click or a swipe. It's all stored on one device that we can whip out whenever we like and show everyone. This is great, it's convenient and we can carry these memories everywhere with us and show them to anyone. We can share them on social media in an instant and get likes to make us feel good.

 

But how amazing would it be to pass a beautiful album or printed piece of artwork, or even just a small printed picture down through your family. Like I can now, go to that box and pull out all my childhood memories and hold them in my hand. I want my children and my grandchildren to do the same.

 

Don't forget to print your pictures - a tangible memory for generations of your family to come is worth every penny.

My life in South Africa - Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/my-life-in-south-africa---lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.

 

You may or may not know that I lived in South Africa for 6 years. The beautiful Noordhoek, in Cape Town to be precise.

I moved out there when I was 12, and came back when I was 18.

 

Which probably explains the slightly-posher-than-normal Derbyshire accent.

Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.

 

A lot of things happened in those 6 years, some really good, and some horrendously bad. Such a broad spectrum of highs and lows, but I think it's made me who I am today, and as much as I wish my mum was still here, I don't think I'd change the rest.

 

People always think I'm mad for coming back to the UK, but one can only take so many horrible events, before they admit defeat and migrate back towards somewhere a lot safer. So after two armed robberies, 6 months apart, I decided to come back and live with my dad here in the UK.

 

It wasn't all bad though.

I really got into my competitive riding career over there, I got to compete at the South African Championships, in Vaulting as well as showjumping & equitation on my lovely bay mare Eagles Coffee Time. I met some of my best life long friends there, I loved school, and to say I'll forever have the influence of the African vibrance, colour and lifestyle is an understatement, I think.

 

Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.

 

I love colour. I think you can see that by looking at my photography. 

 

I often think about why I love doing my photo shoots as much as I do, and I think it's because after everything I've been through, being able to give the gift of happiness and memories in the form of beautiful images just makes me feel like I'm fulfilling my purpose. It oddly feels like I'm changing people's lives by letting them see their relationship with their horse and their dog in a different way. Changing their lives for the better, knowing that they have those precious moments documented, and no one can ever take that away from them.

 

Here's some more of me & my bay mare, Eagles Coffee Time.

The more the merrier! I love it when photo shoots are a family event!

A photo shoot with your horse or dog is a special occasion, a chance to make some lovely memories on the day and have them recorded forever. So, you're welcome to bring as many people as you like, they're more than welcome to feature in some photos if that's what you want!

 

If you don't want anyone else to feature in your photos, that's okay, too! I do recommend bringing an extra pair of hands if you can, someone to help get your horses ears forward, or help with throwing a ball if you're having a dog photo shoot!

I can always bring someone to help us, but I find people are more comfortable if the extra person is someone they know. 

If you're having a horse photo shoot, you're welcome to bring your dog along to be in some photos, too. I don't charge extra for extra horses/dogs featured in photos. Just let me know who I can expect to be there so I can be fully prepared!

 

If you have anymore questions, feel free to drop me a message on Instagram or Facebook, I'm more than happy to help!

I was asked to take some photos for Amanda, the owner of Derbyshire Dog Services as part of my limited edition photo morning!

I met her up at Curbar edge, with her gorgeous dog Miska, and a client's dog, Rosie. 

Amanda wanted some photos for her website and social media, and I must say we got some lovely ones!

Amanda offers dog training, dog walking, puppy classes and dog sitting, and I can assure you your dog is in very safe hands with her!

 

AMANDA (96)AMANDA (96)

 

"Shortly after I became a mum to a beautiful, mischievous and challenging Alaskan Malamute puppy called Miska. Having helped to raise my parents Akita over the years I felt confident I had a good knowledge about dogs... little did I know! So whilst lots of googling and lots of reading helped me gain a greater understanding of our canine companions. As any good parent does, I became extremely interested in learning how to offer my fur baby the best start and education to allow her to be a loving, fun, well behaved little lady. 

3 years down the line, I have a confident dog who I adore and spend most of my time with, she is proving to be smart, loving, entertaining, a great running partner and whole heartedly is my best friend. We spend hours walking in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, and my weekends are based around which new hillside we can explore next. From this I then decided to become a dog walker and absolutely love meeting new fur friends to have great adventures with. Miska joins me for some walks but can be rather intimidating so I choose her play mates carefully. 

 

My invested interest in training Miska led me to the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) and the idea of retraining to become a Dog Trainer was a natural progression. And this is where my new journey begins..."

 

One of her clients recently had this to say...

 

AMANDA (64)AMANDA (64)

 

"I highly recommend Derbyshire Dog Walker - where do I start!??

Amanda is really flexible and usually able to walk Rosie (our gorgeous Great Dane X, 18 months old as of February 2020) even changes of times, last minute and can meet us near wherever we need to be too. She takes Rosie to some stunning locations (the photos are fabulous), and ensures that the dogs she is walking with will get on with her and vice versa. She doesn't just walk dogs, she trains them while walking, encourages them and loves them all as if her own. Rosie responds so much better with us on and off the lead. Rosie loves Amanda to bits, and it's so lovely to see how giddy she is when she knows Amanda is coming to pick her up or we are going to meet her. Thanks Amanda, you're a huge part of Rosie's life"

My Vaulting Story - Lunar Photography Equine and Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/7/my-vaulting-story---lunar-photography-equine-and-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire.

 

I put a little post out on Instagram the other day, asking people if they knew I used to do vaulting - yep, handstands and cartwheels on a cantering horse!

So many people didn't know, so I thought it would be nice to write about it a bit on here.

I moved over to South Africa in 2007, and started vaulting when one of my riding friends mums started up a little club. There wasn't many clubs in Cape Town, and looking back I don't think any of us really knew what we were doing, but we went for it none the less. 

Before I knew it I was stood on someone's shoulders on top of a horse at SA champs. I'm not quite sure how I got there so fast, but we slowly built relationships with the other clubs up in Joburg, and started getting some seriously good training from some of the countries top coaches. It was fun, but a lot of hard work being so dedicated to vaulting in my teenage years. I had a horse, too. So I used to compete at showjumping and eventing, pony club, all the usual sorts of things, then once or twice a month we'd be flying around South Africa training in different places.

 

Me and my vaulting partner Annie, slowly started taking it more seriously and moving up the grades. God knows where the bravery came from but I used to cartwheel off a cantering horse and do handstands at this point. 

Eventually we got to B grade in 2010, the first year the championships hosted the A grade level (so we were the second highest class, but still eligible to get long listed for the South African team!), and this was the first year I won. The first year I actually beat Annie, too. She was always much more flexible than me. I really struggled to be flexible (I remember my trainer stretching me until I cried on a weekly basis!), but I was good at the handstands and the strength stuff. 

So the call came through, I'd been long listed to go to world equestrian games in Kentucky later that year. I got as far as giving them my passport number even, and then they realised it was a British passport, and of course told me I couldn't represent South Africa if I was British. I'm sure you can imagine how heart broken I was!

 

So we explored the idea of me moving back to the UK to try and get into the British team, but to be honest they had the world's best at the time, the standard was a lot higher than in SA, and I just don't think I would have been good enough.

Then the politics started, too... unfortunately I think anyone who has a toe in the Equestrian world knows what I mean, and I just felt like it wasn't worth continuing. I was 17, I had started competing at a higher level with my horse, I had my school exams coming up and it was going to be a busy year anyway. So just like that I gave it all up.

I have lots of amazing memories though. Sometimes it feels like a dream that I ever did it at all, though I'll forever treasure the rosette and medal to prove it was real.

I'd love to have another go at it now but I don't think I'd be able to get on by myself! Or get into one of those leotards for that matter!

My horse never stands still - can I still have a photo shoot? Lunar Photography https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/7/my-horse-never-stands-still---can-i-still-have-a-photo-shoot-lunar-photography "My horse never stands still - can I still have a photo shoot?"

Yes, of course you can! I've worked with 100s of horses in my life time. Not only through photography but through riding, too. 

 

When I was 18 I started up my own freelance riding & grooming business, mainly focusing on helping problem horses and breaking in youngsters. I've worked on event yards, top competition yards and hunting yards with all sorts of fit and young horses and ponies so I've got a fair amount of experience with difficult and energetic horses.

 

Anyway, that could be a separate blog post in itself, but my point is that I know how horses work. I have various tips and tricks up my sleeve to help get them standing still for the split second I need to get the photo. And that's really it, it only needs to be a split second for me to get that beautiful image. or 1/2000th of a second to be precise. 

 

So don't stress, if your horse has ants in his pants I'll still get beautiful images, I promise.

Why a photo shoot isn't as awkward as you think! Lunar Photography Equine & Dog Portraits https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/7/why-a-photo-shoot-isnt-as-awkward-as-you-think-lunar-photography-equine-dog-portraits This is why a photo shoot isn't as awkward as you think...

 

Most people think paparazzi when you say photo shoot. Maybe you think glamorous model, posing and being all serious? That could be true if you were having a fashion photo shoot, but not an equine or dog photo shoot.

I know exactly how you feel, I actually hate having my photo taken, and I always feel like I look ugly when I look at photos of myself... But this is different. Having a photo shoot with your dog or horse allows you to see yourself in a way that you haven't seen yourself before. 

I know for a fact you will LOVE your photos.

 

During your photo shoot, it's all about loving your horse or dog. There's no serious model-like poses. I'll give you guidance on how to stand, where to look etc, but most of the time I just say "kiss your horse" or "cuddle your dog", and we all know how to do that, right?

 

I've built the whole experience of having a photo shoot with me around FUN. I am super friendly (and I like to think I'm funny, too!), I'll try and make you laugh as much as possible. I'll make sure you don't feel awkward, I promise. 

 

So many people say "that was really fun, I didn't feel awkward or pressured at all. It just felt like we were having a friendly chat!" after their photo shoot, and that's exactly what a photo shoot with me is like. A friendly chat whilst you cuddle and love your horse and dog. 

 

I'll also just add as a little side note, there is no pressure to be in the photos. If you'd like to let your horse or dog be the center of attention, that's perfectly fine by me!

 

Here's a review from one of my recent photo shoots..

 

“I’ve wanted a photo shoot with Jimmy for as long as I can remember, but I’ve always put it off because I didn’t like full length pictures of myself.
I always knew Jimmy would look handsome, but I was convinced I would ruin the pictures.
I love these photos though and no longer feel ashamed of myself - although his face does steal the limelight!
I can’t recommend Lunar Photography enough - Imogen had lots of tricks and ideas to get Jimmy’s attention, and managed to capture some beautiful photographs, even with him being a pain and not wanting to stand still!”

Why a photo shoot is worth every penny! Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/7/why-a-photo-shoot-is-worth-every-penny-lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer "It's so expensive to have a photo shoot with my horse"

"Why are dog photo shoots so expensive?"

 

The words any photographer dreads! So I wanted to talk about why it's not expensive to have a photo shoot, and why it is worth every penny!

 

Can you really put a price on memories? If you've ever lost someone close, you know that the photos you have of them are priceless. You look at them whenever you miss them, and they gently remind you of that day, the sounds, the smells, their personality. It's the same with our horses and dogs. Once they're gone, the photos you have mean so much. 

 

Whenever I see a photo, I am transported back to that moment in time, and it triggers memories of all sorts of little things that I thought I'd forgotten. Photos are so much more than just an image on a screen, they're the key to beautiful memories locked away at the back of your mind, waiting to come out.

 

Personally, I think that the sentimental value of a photograph outweighs any cash value. I'd pay a million pounds just to see my mum again, and I'm so grateful for those disposable film camera photos I have of us. Every time I look at them it triggers so many emotions. 

 

Unfortunately, you don't truly know the value of a photograph until that's all you have left. That's the sad reality. Those who have loved and lost, know exactly what I'm talking about.

 

My advice for you... Book the photo shoot during happier times, so the photos are forever triggering happy memories. Don't keep putting it off until it's too late. Once the photograph is all you have left, you will realise it was worth every penny.

REDONE (36)REDONE (36)

 

I love this question. So many people are worried they can't have a photo shoot with their dog, because their dog is crazy, doesn't listen or can't go off the lead.

I love crazy dogs... In fact, the crazier the better! I don't do the whole perfectly posed, fine art woodland majestic doggo thing. I love the action shots, the ones with all four paws off the floor, eyes on the ball and slobber coming out their mouth.

 

My camera equipment is specially made for capturing mid zoomies action, so if your dog is all over the place it's no problem!

 

You know I don't use photo shop (so I can't edit leads out afterwards!), so if you're worried about your dog being off the lead, I know plenty of secure fields we can hire to do our photo shoots in. They usually cost no more than £10 for the hour (you will need to book and pay for this yourself - but I can sort this for you if needs be!)

What a day it was. The weather was perfect, the people were amazing, and I met so many lovely dogs and horses! It all went perfect apart from being stuck behind a lorry for 20 minutes in the Peak District making me a little late for my last two sessions!

 

I even managed to get everyone's gallery ready for them to view before 11am the next day! 

 

I'm so glad I decided to offer this package to people, it was a busy day, but it was totally worth it!


I ended up giving people 80 + images to choose from each, as I simply couldn't just narrow it down to 10! Just goes to show how many photos I can take in 30 minutes - I was quite impressed with myself.

 

Here's an image from each of the sessions I did, I can't wait to share more with you about them over the coming weeks!

 

If you'd like one of these sessions (there must be at least 3 people in one location), then please GET IN TOUCH.

What to wear for your photo shoot -Lunar Photography, Equine & dog photographer Derbyshire. https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/7/what-to-wear-for-your-photo-shoot--lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer-derbyshire One of the most common questions I get asked when someone books a photo shoot is "What should I wear?"

The simple answer here is whatever you feel comfortable in. During our photo shoot, I want you to feel 100% yourself, so the most important thing is to feel comfortable.

 

PADDY & TODD (68)PADDY & TODD (68)

 

Most of my clients just wear some jeans, and a smart shirt. You can even wear your jods and wellies if you want! It really depends on your personal preference. There is always the option to have an outfit change or two during your photo shoot, so if you can't decide on one outfit, it's not a problem! This also gives you the opportunity to wear something super smart as well as a casual outfit, or just simply change your top for a bit of variety in your final images.

 

The only thing I do advise, is sticking to neutral colours. Anything too bright and luminous will distract the viewer of the photo. It's nice to have a colouored accessory though, or a hint of colour somewhere, but like I said before, we can chop and change between photos if you wish.

 

The other thing to consider is the weather on the day... probably best not to wear a dress if it's cold, or a coat if it's boiling, but that's just common sense. 

Don't feel pressure to dress up either, a lot of my clients just wear their jods and wellies, and whatever they would take their dogs for a walk in normally. 

As long as you're comfortable and feeling yourself, your photos will be beautiful.
