You Summer Photoshoot Checklist
 

Ellie & Bunny 111Ellie & Bunny 111

 

Summer is the most popular season choice for people wanting an equine photoshoot. Warm evenings, sunsets, no rain (hopefully!), us horsey folk love summer. 

I've put together a little checklist for you just so you know you've got all the bases covered before the big day.

 

The day before...

* Bath your horse

* Trim your horse

* Clean tack

* Fill a suitcase full of your favourite smart clothes/pick out your favourites if your horse is at home

 

On the day...

* Groom/plait horse

* Put outfit choices in the car/near the yard

* Pack snacks & water

* Sweep/tidy stable area

* Sort hair & makeup

* Hoof oil

* It's always a good idea to have fly spray & baby wipes handy in summer, too.

Badminton Grassroots Roundup - Lunar Photography, Equine Photographer Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/5/badminton-grassroots-roundup---lunar-photography-equine-photographer-derbyshire Some of you may well have seen I was lucky enough to go with my sponsored rider, Becky and her wonderful chestnut mare Luna to Badminton Horse Trials last week for their Grassroots competition. Competing there is something many people dream of, and I was so excited to watch the girls there.

 

I headed down on Monday lunch time and met Becky and her mum and dad at Badminton. Funnily enough I'd timed it really well and arrived literally 2 minutes after them. We got Luna settled in ahead of her dressage on Tuesday afternoon, with her jumping and cross country to follow on Wednesday.

 

My aim whilst being there was to capture something a little different for Becky. I really wanted to capture the emotions of behind the scenes, paying particular attention to the details of the event. So many emotions are at play during big events like this, and in the blur of excitement and nerves it is often the details that are forgotten.

Becky actually qualified a couple years ago, but due to COVID the championships that year was postponed, so it was nice to finally get the chance to compete at this amazing event.

Becky was due for dressage at 4:30pm on the Tuesday (a long and slightly agonising wait), and after us walking her cross country course twice before lunch (my legs were very tired!), it was finally time to start tacking up and getting ready. 

 

Luna did a lovely test, a slight spook going down the centre line left her lying 5th overnight less than 4 penalties off the leader. There was actually only 15 or so penalties separating first & last, it was really tight. Tuesday night was also host to an exclusive drinks party at the Badminton Media centre, which Becky very kindly took me along to. Prosecco & canapes were consumed and it was nice to chat to some of the other competitors, too.

Wednesday... The exciting part!

The showjumping course was fairly inviting bar the undulating ground in the arena, it caused a lot of poles & issues in the BE100 class. The BE90 course walk quickly came around and Luna was a little fresh in the jumping warm up, she was certainly feeling the occasion. Again, a lovely round from her but a slight rub behind over the Voltaire oxer saw her have a very costly pole and drop down 34th place. 

I must add here that there were about 113+ competitors in the BE90 class, and with it all to play for on the cross country I was certain the standings would be very different come the end of the day.

It was soon time for the best part and quite frankly I couldn't wait to watch Becky & Luna gallop around that Badminton turf. I knew they'd have a great round. I was at the second to last fence, as it was a good spot for a galloping shot and I knew I could run across and get a photo over the last fence (I was also desperate to capture a photo of them crossing the finish line, so much emotion happens there!).

 

I managed to find myself stood with three lovely ladies who were jump judging the fence, they very kindly let me listen to their walkie-talkie so I could follow Becky's round as she went. It really was quite intense, but she kept going clear and before I knew it they were home and safe with no time penalties to add.

The course caused a few issues for others on the day and soon Becky was in 21st position with only 5 more riders to go (top 20 got a rosette so we were crossing fingers!). Unfortunately there were a few stops and eliminations in the last few competitors which left Becky & Luna in 19th place at the end of the competition. 

 

To say I am proud is an understatement - getting to be a part of such an incredible event and have access to behind the scenes like I did was just amazing. Big thank you to Becky's mum, Tracey, for looking after me, making cups of coffee and endless pasta. Also to Becky's dad, Steve, for providing endless entertainment regarding the Badminton hounds (if you know, you know).

HALT Equestrian - An Equine Brand Photoshoot Lunar Photography, Photographer Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/5/halt-equestrian---an-equine-brand-photoshoot-lunar-photography-photographer-derbyshire  

HALT Equestrian

 

Back in March I got to photograph the gorgeous new spring collection from HALT Equestrian. I am totally in love with all the new colours and it's really quite incredible what Sophie has achieved so far with her business. From mini to adult, there's definitely a size and colour for everyone here and Sophie even has a gorgeous little factory shop in Orston, Nottinghamshire. 

 

We did a couple different locations on this shoot. We started at the livery yard where Sophie's horses are stabled in Orston (the same place the factory shop is located), and then moved onto a lovely showjumping arena about 15 minutes down the road for some ridden shots. 
 

It turned out to be a really lovely day weather wise which is always a bonus at that time of year in the UK. 5 horses and 8 models later it was a wrap, another incredible shoot day with the HALT team! If you look closely you may well see my two JRTs feature as well. 

 

Sophie is already planning her Summer collection, I can't wait to see it!

Back in March I met with Dione & her gorgeous family dog, Ringo. Ring is a sausage dog x Labrador (a totally perfect accident, isn't he cute?!). We did the shoot in Shipley Park for our quick Limited Edition session. The daffodils were in full bloom, and I know the perfect quiet spot at that time of year for a quick fun photoshoot with any dog.

 

Ringo was such a happy little character, and he really enjoyed exploring a new location.

 

My Limited Edition sessions are run at particular times of the year, they're a short, sweet session that's pawfect for dogs!

I was SO impressed by Rex's training - he was an absolute pleasure. Megan has put a lot of work into him during lockdown and he was an absolute angel for the whole shoot. Megan had also treated herself to some new Fairfax & Favour boots, so of course they had to be included in the shoot too.

Carlen's Companions

 

This was the third year running I've visited Beth down in London for a business photoshoot. It's lovely to get her some fresh images. It also gives her clients a chance to have some professional images of their dogs when they're out on their walks with Beth. 

I love a stay away photoshoot, especially visiting London as it's not somewhere I visit often. I took Jordan & my dogs down with me this time, too. We stayed at Travelodge in Harrow (did you know they are dog friendly?!), and ddi a bit of exploring ourselves whilst we were down there.

 

We did our business photoshoot over a day and a half back in March, with three separate sessions on the Thursday and two sessions on the Friday. We visited various parks and green spaces in the Harrow/Pinner area with the dogs, including a spot at the top of a hill overlooking Wembley stadium. I even got a ride in Beth's new branded van which she uses to transport all the dogs. 

Lot's of haribo was consumed, lots of steps taken and lot's of fun was had by everyone involved.

 

 

You can see all of her services by visiting her website here.

Beth & Etse- Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/4/beth-etse--lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire  

In March I went down to London, Harrow, to do a business shoot for Beth's dog walking business (Carlen's Companions). Whilst I was down there we made some time to do some photos with her gorgeous loan horse, Etse. 

 

Etse is a Friesian gelding, he's 22 years old now. They've been a partnership for 5 years, but Beth knew him 3 years before that, too. Etse used to be a carriage horse for Tim Woods (if you've got a moment it's really worth giving them a google, the carriages are beautiful!)

 

It literally rained none stop the whole time we were at the yard. At the beginning we did some black background stable shots to see if the rain would slow down a little - wishful thinking! Este was a little on edge when we got down to the woods so we just did some shots with Beth in her dress (yes she braved the rain), and decided to call it a day. 

 

I love traveling down south for photoshoots, it always feels like such an adventure, especially visiting London as it's not somewhere I visit a lot. I took my other half and my two little dogs with me - did you know travelodges are dog friendly? 

Anyway, after a fab two days with Beth, we did her viewing over zoom a few weeks later where she chose her images.

When is the best time of day for my equine photoshoot? Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/4/when-is-the-best-time-of-day-for-my-equine-photoshoot-lunar-photography-derbyshire

When is the best time of day for my equine photoshoot?
 

 

There are a few things to think about when it comes to choosing the right time of day for your equine photoshoot. 

Firstly, it depends on the look you're after. If you're looking for some gorgeous golden hour shots like the one below, it's best to start shooting 2/3 hours before sunset. This gives us plenty of time to get some "daylight" shots then shoot into golden hour, so you've got a lovely variety in your final gallery. If you're not too fussed about sunset shots, shooting from mid-morning or mid-afternoon can work really well. Alternatively sunrise or blue hour shots can be shot from sunrise and can make some beautiful images, especially on a cold crisp morning in winter.

 

Shireen, Jazz, Arty & Pie-69Shireen, Jazz, Arty & Pie-69

 

The time of year... Sunrise and sunset times vary greatly here in the UK, so if you are wanting to incorporate sunrise or sunset into your photoshoot, it's worth checking the times at the time of year you've booked. Sunset is much later in mid summer, possibly too late for ponies & children, so it might be worth booking your shoot in early spring or late autumn when the sun sets a little earlier.

 

Location. It is true that some locations work better at certain times of day. For example, if you like the black background shots, but only have one block of stables that alal face the same way, you may want to consider where the sun hits them at the time of day of your photoshoot booking. Of course if it's an overcast day it doesn't really matter, but if a black background image is one you're set on we can certainly book at the best time of day for your location to get your desired results.

What works for you? I'm a morning person, but I appreciate that not everyone is. Especially if you have a grey pony that requires lots of bathing and cleaning ahead of your photoshoot. For this reason you may want to start a little later in the day to give you plenty of time for some final touches before we begin. Perhaps the horses are used to going out all day, so you'd like to start mid-afternoon to keep their routine as normal as possible? Maybe the kids are less tired in the mornings. It really depends on what suits you too. 

 

I'm happy to work at different times of the day to suit you depending on all the above factors. This is something we will have a chat about during your pre-consultation call, so we can plan your shoot at the perfect time of day for everyone involved.

A Little Portfolio Shoot - Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/4/a-little-portfolio-shoot---lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire  

Back in March I met with my wonderful friend & client Shireen at her yard in Collingham to capture some images for my portfolio. The winter months are a quiet time for us equine photographers and I like to keep shooting as much as possible where I can. I also love getting some practice in whilst I'm doing my year long mentorship with the Training Barn. 

 

Shireen is at a lovely location in the Nottinghamshire countryside and has two lovely horses, Jazz & Pie, as well as the yard owner's horse Reggie, dog Arty & her farrier partner Carl. I had really fun creating lots of different images for them, it also rained 90% of the time so that was a challenge, too.

I got to go and see the gorgeous Archie & his owner Charlotte for the third time in March. I love the challenge of creating something completely unique and new for a client at the same location - and this time the results didn't disappoint. 

 

Charlotte has recently become a brand ambassador for Equielle Equestrian, so we got some photos of her in her Equielle clothing, too. I love the sage baselayer I think it's gorgeous! Charlotte always chooses lovely outfits and that was true for this photoshoot, too.

 

Charlotte is also the first client to go through the new in person viewing process - and what an emotional viewing it was. I'm glad I remembered to bring tissues, even I had a little cry! 

 

"As some of you may know I had a lovely visit from my photographer and friend Lunar Photography a couple of weeks back. Well today I had my viewing for the photos and when I say it was emotional… tissues were involved.


Imogen made the experience so special, she came over to my house with all of her equipment, she had made such a special slideshow with music I felt like I was viewing wedding photos not horsey photos.

Even after having a photoshoot with you 3 times, you still managed to make me cry! Thank you."

Summer Styling Ideas
 

Ellie & Bunny 111Ellie & Bunny 111

 

This year is absolutely flying by! With the spring months of 2022 fully booked, I wanted to offer you some summer styling inspiration if you've booked your photoshoot between June & August, or if you're thinking of booking one during the summer season.

 

Choosing your outfits for your photoshoot can feel like a bit of a daunting task, but don't worry. In your welcome pack you will see a style guide that you can read through and get your brain ticking. There are lots of suggestions and images in there that will provide you with plenty of inspiration on outfit choices for your photoshoot. 

We will have a chat about outfits during our pre-consultation, too.  I always suggest bringing lots of options to your shoot so we can go through together and pick the outfits that work - you can never bring too much!

 

Think floral patterns, bright colours, floaty dresses, skirts, floaty blouses & smart shirts.

 

If you're lucky enough to keep your horse at home we can have real fun going through your favourite outfits and combining what you love wearing with what looks great on camera. 

If you're at a livery yard, that's what the tack room and stable is for. Bring a suitcase full or fill your car boot with your favourite clothing and we can go through what you want to wear.

 

When we choose your outfits together before we start your photoshoot. I'll be thinking about your location, the season and making sure you're comfortable so you can just enjoy being with your horse and dog. 

 

Below I've gathered some of my favourite summer outfits from the past year to give you some inspiration for your summer photoshoot... cue the warm evenings & BBQs, it's time to get excited about summer!

10 Eventing Prep Hacks https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/4/eventing-prep-hack-lunar-photography-derbyshire 10 Eventing Prep Hacks

Packing and prepping for an event can be really stressful. Especially when you're thinking about that horrible 10 minutes packed with nerves before you trot down the centre line.

We all know prepping for your events starts weeks and even months in advance, but I wanted to offer you some tips on making sure you're all ready and feel prepared in the week leading up to the big day.

 

 

IMG_3743IMG_3743

 

 

 

1. Work out an exercise plan for your horse the week before. 

Depending on your horse, you'll either want them to feel fresh, or calmer for an event. You won't increase fitness by that much in the final few days before an event, but it's important to get your horse mentally switched on and get you both in a really positive head space.

Don't try anything new the week before an event, think of easy, fun and mentally challenging things to do with your horse. Maybe some small jumping exercises focusing on accuracy and straightness, or some pole work to get your horse really thinking.

My old horse was very laid back, so I used to hack him lightly the day before an event. You might want to run through your test, or if your horse is fresh on event days, you might want to go for a longer hack or school them so they've burned off a bit of energy. Have a chat with your coach and see what they think is best for you both.

 

 

2. Draw out your dressage test on a piece of paper.

Make sure you know where you're going in your dressage test! There are other ways to run through your test without being on your horse. Drawing a little arena on a piece of paper can really help you learn, or physically walking the test in your school at home might help you. Either way, make sure you're confident in knowing where you're going, so you can really focus on how your horse is going on the day.

 

 

3. Write a checklist.

This one might seem obvious, but spend time a few days before writing up a checklist. Writing a list when you're not stressed out thinking about your event the next day gives you time to really think about what you need to take. Divide your list into each phase plus extras. If you can type this up and print it out so you can have a fresh copy for every event that's great! Don't forget to tick things off as you go, and tick again once they're in the lorry.

 

SURPRISE! I wrote you a checklist already - and it's FREE! Download it here!

 

 

4. Get your horse clean.

If you've got a grey horse, you will want to think about rugging them up, and maybe adding a full hood or something similar for the few days before to prevent any new stains appearing. Bath your horse the day before, leaving it until on the day can make your horses coat look really fluffy and add extra unnecessary stress on show day. The same goes for trimming fetlocks, bridle paths, tails and chins. These are all things that can be done days before so they're not adding extra stress on show day.

 

 

5. Clean your tack & boots.

It's one of the worst horse jobs ever! But it can really bring the wow factor to your show day look. Clean your tack after your last ride before show day, don't forget to polish stirrups and bits, too. A great overall impression in the dressage can increase your marks! TOP TIP: Before using leather balm, make up a bowl of really hot water with a tiny dot of fairy liquid in it (as hot as you can handle, don't burn yourself!), and use this to wipe off excess dirt and mud before conditioning leather (ring out the cloth as much as possible before wiping). It will make leather come up like new. Change the water regularly to avoid smear marks. 

 

 

IMG_3744IMG_3744

 

 

 

6. Packing the lorry the night before.

Doing this the night before can relieve a lot of pressure on show day. Especially if you have an early start and it is safe to do so. This means you have more time to groom and plait your horse the next morning. If you can plait the day before and you know they will still be there in the morning, that's a good job to do too. 

 

 

7. Check your stud holes!

This was the bain of my existence when I was eventing. There is always one that wanted to cross thread. For this very reason I always did my studs at the beginning of show week, and then checked them again the day before. You can get 'blank' studs that are flat and great to put in the day before. It makes putting studs in at the show so much easier! At the beginning of the week, clean out the holes, tap the stud holes and plug with cotton wool covered in vaseline. Then the day before you can pick out the cotton wool, and replace with your blank stud. If the ground is wet and you put blank ones in too far ahead, they can rust and get stuck, hence why I only did this the day before. 

 

 

8. Make up your haynets.

Another one of my worst yard jobs, but making a couple of nets ahead of time can be really handy. You will usually need 2 or 3 anyway, as if you're in the placings you might be waiting around for prize giving for quite a while, and there might not always be decent grass for your horse to snack on. Also, eating their own hay minimizes the risk of them picking up a virus or something at the show. 

 

 

9. Put any ice boots in the freezer.

Forgetting to do this the night before can be a massive bummer. A great alternative to these are water boots. You can put these in a cold bucket of water before you go cross country at an event, and they will be ready at the lorry to cool your horses legs when you get back. You can then use your ice boots when you're back from travelling. This is especially handy if you don't have a way of keeping ice packs frozen/cold whilst you're on the road.

 

 

10. Check your show jacket is clean.

How many times has your horse sneakily snotted on your show jacket and you've only realised the next time you've gone out to a show? Use a damp cloth or a baby wipe to remove any snot stains before you hang your show jacket up in the lorry. 

 

It's really important to have fun when you're out competing, after all, that is why we do it! These tips will help you feel more prepared and less stressed on show day, thus making it more fun and leaving you to concentrate on how you and your horse are feeling.

Before & After Edit 

 

I wanted to show you a little sneak peak behind the scenes at a recent photoshoot I did with Charlotte and Archie. I thought it would be really interesting to showcase the "real life" what it looks like through a phone camera, the straight out of camera image and then the final edited image.

I love keeping my images as natural as possible, I believe an authentic image is a timeless image, so my clients will always love them.

Rhythm In Beads - An Equine Brand Photoshoot Lunar Photography, Photographer Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/3/rhythm-in-beads---an-equine-brand-photoshoot-lunar-photography-photographer-derbyshire  

Rhythm In Beads

 

I have worked with Caroline at Rhythm In Beads for over a year now photographing her many creative bead collections. 

Rhythm beads are used to help calm nervous and spooky horses by giving them a gentle rhythmic jingle to listen to and focus on, rather than other distractions in the environment.

As your horse moves, the bells on your rhythm beads jingle in time with the gait, enabling both horse and rider stay in time, increasing both your and your horses relaxation, connection and focus, improving timing and building confidence between you and your horse. 

They encourage relaxation and can be used when schooling to improve your horse's focus. Rhythm beads can help you out hacking, as they alert wildlife of your approach, 'flushing' out birds and so forth and therefore preventing  birds flying out and spooking your horse.
 

From custom designs, to hi viz you can find out more about Rhythm beads by visiting her website here.

Preparing Your Horse For A Photoshoot In Summer - Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/3/preparing-your-horse-for-a-photoshoot-in-summer---lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Preparing Your Horse For A Photoshoot In Winter
 

Becky, Luna & Rio 11Becky, Luna & Rio 11

 

Warm sunshine, dresses, long grass, that gentle summer breeze... there are lots of reasons to love the outcome of a photoshoot in summer. 

I wanted to offer a few tips on prepping your horse for the special day, should you decide that summer is the season for you.

 

When prepping for your photoshoot, it's important to keep your horses routine as normal as possible. This will prevent them getting stressed out and wound up on your photoshoot day, which is something we really want to avoid.

 

1. Bathing

You'll definitely want to consider bathing your horse the day before your photoshoot. Especially if they're grey or have any white socks.  Nobody wants a poo-stains or dusty bums in their photos, so it's best to get these washed off the day before if possible. It's also a good idea to get to your horse a few hours before so you can wash off any new stains and give them time to dry before we start shooting.

 

Please allow plenty of time for your horse to dry off - trust me if your horse has wet patches you will definitely notice these in your final images.

 

Charlotte & Archie 4Charlotte & Archie 4

 

2. Tack Cleaning

Clean any pieces of tack the day before as if you were going to a show. I always recommend a leather headcollar and bridle (we can alternate between the two), and if you're planning some ridden shots make sure your saddle, girth, saddle cloths and any boots/bandages you wish to use are clean, too. I also recommend a black/brown/navy lead rope, but if you don't have one I always carry a spare.

 

3. Plaiting/Trimming

Get any trimming you need to do done a couple of days before - the less you have to do on your photoshoot day, the less stress you will be under and the more you will enjoy the whole experience.

If you're planning to plait, plait the night before or a few hours before we're due to start (if you've got a horse that is likely to rub them out).

 

Hannah, Pepsy & Duke 50Hannah, Pepsy & Duke 50

 

4. The Finishing Touches

Hoof oil is a must have for your photoshoot, but don't put any on until we're ready to start. If you put hoof oil on in the stable too early, straw/shavings will get stuck to them and you'll have to apply it again anyway. 

 

Does your horse have a favourite treat? It's best to bring a little something for them as a reward during the photoshoot. I will have some treats with me, too. I try not to treat too much throughout the course of the photoshoot to prevent any fingers getting nibbled and when we really need a treat your horse will be more interested if they're given less often. 

 

Don't forget fly spray to keep those pests away and stop your horse getting irritable. It's always a good idea to bring some sun cream & lots of water if it's really hot, too.

What makes me different? Things to ask your equine photographer...

 

 

You want some beautiful images of you & your horse, but where do you even start when it comes to choosing the perfect photographer for you?

I've put together some helpful information so you know where to start and what questions to ask when enquiring about your dream equine photoshoot. You'll also find a little bit about how I work and what makes my equine photoshoot experience different to help you decide if I'm the perfect equine photographer for you.

 

So many questions will be going through your mind when deciding to invest your precious time & money into an equine photoshoot. I'm going to go through the most important ones below so you can make the right decision for you.

 

What experience does the photographer have?

With so many photographers to choose from, it's worth considering a couple of things. Are they a specialist equine photographer, a family photographer or a jack-of-all-trades type?


For example, often wedding photographers will do equine photoshoots, but this may mean they don't understand the horse as much as a specialist equine photographer does. If you want someone who understands you want your horse's ears forward and their legs square, you need to pick someone who has experience in the equestrian field.

I used to work as a freelance horse rider before I was a photographer, as well as riding horses since I was 2 years old. I have 25+ years of experience working with and riding a whole range of horses from unbroken 3 year olds to olympic event horses. Hence why I chose to specialise in equine photography.

Where do they work, do they travel around the uk & abroad?

It's easy to think that if your favourite photographer is based at the opposite end of the country then they won't travel to you for a photoshoot, but this isn't always the case. When you make your initial enquiry, ask the photographer if they travel and if so, are there any extra charges for them to come to you.
Your favourite photographer may even be in a different country, but this doesn't necessarily mean they won't hop on a plane to work with you.

I am happy to travel all around the UK & abroad for photoshoots - if an overnight stay is required there may be an extra charge for this but any travel costs will be communicated to you when you enquire. I am based in Derbyshire but regularly travel to London, Gloucestershire, Yorkshire & The New Forest for photoshoots. Infact, I love travelling to new & exciting areas for photoshoots and I'm always delighted to receive enquiries from further afield.

 

What are their prices?

You can commission an equine photoshoot from £30 all the way up to and beyond £1000. What's important is matching your budget to what you want to get out of your equine photoshoot. Undoubtedly, someone who charges a higher price is going to produce a more quality experience than a photographer who does a "shoot & burn" type package for less money.

My client's average spend is £1000, with the shoot fee from £395 in 2022. The shoot fee includes a huge frame with your favourite image, too. Optional extras can be purchased at your viewing after your photoshoot, so you can decide how much you'd like to spend and pick your own photo products without being restricted to a set package. I am on hand to guide you through the entire experience, from styling advice to choosing your favourite images so you get the most out of the time & money you invest in your equine photoshoot.

What products do they offer?

It's important to look at the products a photographer offers, too. Some people want digitals files, whilst others want frames & albums. Maybe you'd just like the digital files so you can frame & print them yourself? It's worth noting the quality of their products and ask if they have any sort of guarantee on their photography products, too.

I offer frames, albums & high res digital files. All of my photography products come with a lifetime guarantee. I'm always happy to help with anything regarding your photoshoot, even after your equine photoshoot experience has finished.

Each photoshoot experience is crafted especially for each client, so if you'd like something that's not on my product list I will happily explore your ideas for you.

 

What is their editing style?

Are you looking for natural, in the moment photographs of you and your horse? Or do you want dramatic, heavily edited images? It's important you pick a photographer that consistently produces the style of work you love.
Photographers are artists, each unique in their style and approach. If you like natural images pick a photographer whose work reflects that.
If you ask a more natural photographer to create something dark & dramatic then the likelihood is that you and the photographer will end up with images that don't make your hearts sing, which is a waste of time for everyone.

I love natural, unstaged images that focus on warmth & vibrant colour. I used to live in Cape Town for 6 years and so my work is heavily influenced by the vibrant african colours. People often say my images "feel like summer". To me it's important that the moments captured with your horse are real, so they trigger real memories when you look at your images.


So if you're looking for heavily edited, dramatic images then I'm probably not the right equine photographer for you.

What is their availability vs yours?

Does the photographer you're enquiring with work weekends, or weekdays only? Do they only shoot in golden hour (sunset light), or do they shoot at any time of day to suit you?
You may need to book annual leave, or be prepared to start your shoot late in the day to get the result you want. So definitely ask what their availability is. You may also have to wait a few months before you can get your desired season/time/day.

I don't do photoshoots on Sundays, but I am available on weekdays and Saturdays (though my Saturday dates are limited, especially in summer as they sell out quickly!). This means you may need to book annual leave if you'd like to work with me. I do chat to my clients about this when they enquire.

I am also happy to shoot at a time of day that suits you, your horse & your desired results.

 

What are their policies?

Each photographer will have their own terms & conditions when you work with them. It's an absolute must to read the small print when you book a photoshoot. Check out their cancellation policy, what they do if it rains or if your horse goes lame, or what happens if something unexpected happens leading up to your photoshoot.

I send out my full terms & conditions when you enquire so you know what happens in each of these situations. I charge a non-refundable booking fee of £100 to secure your chosen date with me.
If it rains on your photoshoot day, or your horse goes lame in the lead up, we can simply reschedule (there is no extra charge for this).

For full terms & conditions visit my website and go to the link at the bottom of the page.

What is their personality like?

At the end of the day you're choosing someone to capture some really precious moments that are going to last a lifetime.
When you start chatting to your chosen photographer make sure you feel like you trust them and get on with them. They ought to feel like a friend really. You're letting them behind the curtain on a very special partnership between you & your horse.

The images from your shoot will take you back to that moment in time, so you want to make sure you're entrusting the experience to someone who is going to make the whole day feel stress-free, easy going and fun.


Go with your gut on this one.

 

 

How many images do they produce?

Each photographer will have their own process and way of doing things, and it's worth checking how many images will be presented in the your final gallery. Generally photographers whose style is more edited tend to produce less images in your final gallery due to

the time it takes to edit each individual image.

I tend to produce 80 - 120 images in your final gallery so you have plenty of variety and lovely images to choose from. Different locations, outfits and lighting will contribute to an array of images from your equine photoshoot that I'm certain you will love forever.

I'm sure you've found this helpful.

It's really important you enjoy every second of your equine photoshoot experience, whether it's a once in a lifetime event or something you'd like to recur annually as your family grows and changes.

If you've got anymore questions, feel free to drop me a quick message imogen@lunarphoto.co.uk or call me 07958101755 if you'd prefer. I'm always happy to answer any questions you might have and I love hearing about your gorgeous horses and the stories you have to tell.

I tend to become good friends with my clients. I become emotionally invested in their equine & family journey and take great joy from keeping in touch with them over many years.

Here's to capturing those precious memories with your horse and reliving them a thousand times over for years to come.

What's my favourite equine photoshoot location?

 

Beth & Dibble-66Beth & Dibble-66

 

I was having a little think about this the other day and the short answer has got to be your horse's home. Whether that's at your house or on a livery yard, I just love seeing new yards and the different locations they have to offer within them. 

Even on the most basic yards, I love the challenge of creating a variety of images for each individual client. I also think that the horse's home has a special significance... It's where they feel most relaxed and also where most of the quiet moments between horse and rider take place.

There are standard areas most yards have, too. Such as a field shelter or stable which creates beautiful studio type images, gateways, fence lines, fields and local hacking all make beautiful locations for equine photoshoot which I thoroughly enjoy. I also love looking for textures that provide lovely backdrops, such as corrugated iron, hedgerows, stable walls, rendered walls etc. 

I also love the challenge of going back to the same location and creating something totally different, which is often the case with my clients that have shoots every year. Seeing things through new eyes, in new seasons or new weather conditions always adds to the variety of one location, too. 

I've done equine photoshoots in woodlands and beaches too, and these combined with your horse's home provide an even greater variety of images.

Whatever location you choose, you will get gorgeous images that you will love forever.

I caught up with my sponsored rider and her new pony Dibble back in January for a lovely winter-styled photoshoot at Derby College Equestrian Centre. Beth & Dibble are already an incredible partnership and I've got no doubts they're going to achieve some amazing things this year. It's also crazy to see how much Beth has grown!

When Beth became part of my team just over a year ago she was shorter than me, now she's taller than me (which if you know me isn't hard)! Beth is hoping to do some BE90s with Dibs this year, which I'm certain they will do with ease. 

Here are some photos from that morning, proof that you can have beautiful photos in January amongst the mud and puddles!

How To Prep Your Locations For Your Equine Photoshoot - Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/3/how-to-prep-your-locations-for-your-equine-photoshoot---lunar-photography-derbyshire  

How To Prep Your Locations For Your Equine Photoshoot
 

Becky, Luna & Rio 47Becky, Luna & Rio 47

 

A lot of equine photoshoots often take place at home, either your home if you're lucky enough to keep your horses there, or the horses home or livery yard. I often recommend shooting at your horses home because this is where they're most relaxed and stable yards provide a huge amount of variety when it comes to backdrops, too. We can also combine this with local hacking and surrounding areas to get a really lovely variety of images. 

 

There are a few tips I've got for prepping your location ahead of time to save a bit of time on your photoshoot day.

The stable area is a firm favourite of mine when it comes to a shooting location.
The natural fall off of light into the stable gives a beautiful black background effect that makes for some stunning images with your horse. Often we keep a lot of bits and bobs around our horses stables, so have a little think if anything can be moved for the duration of your photoshoot. Hang rugs somewhere else and move any grooming boxes, headcollars or yard tools away from the door so we can get a lovely clean image. Sweeping beds back and the surrounding area is also a good move to create that super neat finish in your images.

 

Hannah, Pepsy & Duke 35Hannah, Pepsy & Duke 35


If you’re on a livery yard, ask your yard owner if there’s anywhere off limits for your photoshoot. You never know where they might let you go for that special shot. 

When I arrive you can give me. yard tour so I can seek out the best locations and light for your photoshoot. Beauty can be found in the smallest of places, even some places you won't expect. As we're walking around I'll be looking out for those little magical spots, a wooden door, a gateway, a driveway, a grass verge, there is just so many beautiful places for photos you may not have thought of. 

 

If you're planning to do part of or all of your shoot away from your horse's home, at a local woodland or beach for example, make sure you've scouted out the parking and equine access beforehand so you're not worrying about it on the day.

I met up with my lovely sponsored rider, Becky, back in January to do a winter styled photoshoot. 

Towards the end of last year Becky added two new additions to her team. 4 year old Rufus (on the left) being one of them, and a lovely bay 3 year old called Marley who is yet to make him modelling debut. 

 

Rufus is currently doing a bit of everything - he's a really sweet young horse with a little bit of chestnut attitude and definitely one to watch for the future!

 

We met at Becky's dad's house in the gorgeous Ashbourne countryside. We did some photos and then went for a lovely hack afterwards (despite it being freezing cold!).

Becky & Luna are off to Badminton grassroots in May and I'm going to be tagging along to support them. I am super excited and I'm sure they're going to do amazingly well!

Your photoshoot day is over (so sad!) but don't worry because it's time for the power of your beautiful images to shine. The magic of photographs is that you can relive those happy memories a thousand times over.

 

To get the most out of your photoshoot it's important to have a think about what you want to do with your images afterwards. I'm a sucker for frames & printed images over a digital file but it's about finding the products that work best for you. 

 

I have a range of gorgeous multi-frames available. My 3in1, 6in1 & 9in1 are all gorgeous ways to display multiple images in a stunning frame after your photoshoot.

Of course the standard one image frames are available, too. Perhaps you'd like 2 or 3 of these displayed together?

The absolute creme-de-la-creme is my gorgeous album. Remember looking through your parents wedding album? How special it feels to flick through the beautiful thick pages at all those precious moments... You can have just that from your equine photoshoot, too. Your gorgeous memories can be mounted into the thick ivory pages so you can relive your memories for generations to come.

Spring Styling Ideas

Despite all the rain we're having at the moment, spring is officially just two weeks away! I wanted to offer you some spring styling inspiration if you've booked your photoshoot between March and May, or if you're thinking of booking one during the spring season.

 

Choosing your outfits for your photoshoot can feel like a bit of a daunting task, but don't worry. In your welcome pack you will see a style guide that you can read through and get your brain ticking. There are lots of suggestions and images in there that will provide you with plenty of inspiration on outfit choices for your photoshoot. 

We will have a chat about outfits during our pre-consultation, too.  I always suggest bringing lots of options to your shoot so we can go through together and pick the outfits that work - you can never bring too much!

 

Think floral patterns, pastel colours, gingham, tweed jackets, country boots, gilets & floaty dresses.

 

If you're lucky enough to keep your horse at home we can have real fun going through your favourite outfits and combining what you love wearing with what looks great on camera. 

If you're at a livery yard, that's what the tack room and stable is for. Bring a suitcase full or fill your car boot with your favourite clothing and we can go through what you want to wear.

 

When we choose your outfits together before we start your photoshoot. I'll be thinking about your location, the season and making sure you're comfortable so you can just enjoy being with your horse and dog. 

 

Below I've gathered some of my favourite spring outfits from last year to give you some inspiration for your spring photoshoot... cue the daffodils & bluebells, it's time to get excited about spring!

My horse never stands still - can I still have a photo shoot? Lunar Photography https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/2/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. 

I totally get it, you want your horse's ears forward and their legs square so they look their absolute best on their photoshoot day. This is why it's so important to choose a specialist equine photographer.

 

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.

 

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.

The Joys Of An In Person Viewing
 

 

Bedroom Frame 1Bedroom Frame 1

 

The big new addition to my photoshoot process is definitely the in person viewing session. This part is truly the pinnacle of the photoshoot process. Prepare to get emotional!

 

About 2-3 weeks after your session we will get together (either at your house or a mutual location) and I'll show you a slideshow of all your beautiful images set to music. We then go through the images and pick your favourites, and decide if you'd like them framed, put in albums or as digital files. 

 

I can show you exactly how all your frames would look through my digital software, and I'll have my studio samples with me so you can actually feel and see what my frames and products are like. 

 

It's a really fun process and of course I'm on hand to offer any advice if you'd like it during the viewing. This really is the chance to make the most out of the beautiful images you've commissioned.

 

Any extras you purchase at your viewing are paid for there and then, with delivery of the final products to you in 3-4 weeks. Digital files are uploaded onto an online gallery for you to download and access for 4 weeks, so you have plenty of time to download them onto various devices.

ANABEL & BASIL -17ANABEL & BASIL -17

 

I was so excited to work with this pair back in November 2021. I have followed Anabel & Basil on instagram for a while, and got to watch them showjumping when I was photographing at Newbold Verdon Equestrian Centre back in the summer. 

Basil is the most gorgeous palomino pony (as you can see from the photos!).

 

Basil has got to be one of my favourite ponies I've ever got to photograph, he is just so sweet and we all had loads of fun. The yard where Basil is kept is based near Walsall. It was a lovely busy livery yard with plenty of horses on it.

 

We started off doing some photos in the school, then Anabel decided she wanted to ride bareback so we got some shots of her doing that, too. After that we went down this lovely track which leads to a pretty bridge to finish. We got lucky for November, the light was incredible (as it often is that time of year), the sky even went a little pink as the sun went down. Anabel was brave enough to wear a dress throughout, too. 

 

Anabel has already booked another photoshoot for her birthday in May, I can't wait to work with this pair again!

The Training Barn Session Three - Lunar Photography - Training With The Training Barn https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/2/the-training-barn-session-three---lunar-photography---training-with-the-training-barn  

The Training Barn: Session Three

 

 

In January I went back down to the New Forest for the third in person session of my year-long mentorship with The Training Barn. This was a really exciting two days for me. As you know I've created a whole new process for my clients in 2022, so this was a chance to go through that new, luxury process in detail.

We focused on products the first day... Which frames to have, what to include in the price list and Emily & Hannah showed us all sorts of amazing products which provided plenty of inspiration going forward.

As a result I've decided to change my product list again in March this year, so there will be even more fabulous products for my clients to choose from.

 

Louise & Nero TB Day 2 -48Louise & Nero TB Day 2 -48

 

We also went through in person sales - another new aspect of my photoshoot process this year. Instead of uploading an online gallery after your photoshoot and leaving you a little stranded when it comes to choosing your images, I will now be doing an in-person viewing session with all my clients. 

 

This is roughly a 2 hour session where I show you a slideshow of your images set to music and we go through your images together to decide which ones you'd like to purchase. Being with you allows me to provide any immediate advice as well as being able to show you my lovely products and how beautiful they are in person.

You will see frame mock ups, as well as being able to touch and feel my frame & album samples.

All your frames & products are finalised and paid for at the viewing, so you're not left confused and wondering what you could have done to make better use of your images after your photoshoot.

 

I'm really excited for this part of my photoshoots this year, I know all my lovely clients are going to get so much more out of their images and that makes me so happy.

 

Training Barn Day 1 -65Training Barn Day 1 -65

 

Of course, we did some practical photoshoots, too.

 

On the first day we went to what most people would think of as your "classic" DIY type livery yard. I know a lot of people are put off having a photoshoot because they think their yard isn't pretty enough, so Hannah & Emily took us here to try and push the boat out and get our brains working a little in terms of locations. 

It's amazing how a small section of rusty corrugated iron can make a beautiful backdrop. As a photographer I love looking for these little gems at my locations and creating something my clients would never anticipate.

 

I captured some stunning images of Serena & her beautiful mare, Gwen.

 

Here are some photos from that day...

The second day we went into the forest with the lovely Louise & her gorgeous gelding Nero. Woodland on an overcast day can always be a little challenge because of the lack of light, so I found it really helpful to work through this. We each had a turn at directing Louise and Nero which was really lovely. 

The dogs even joined in on some photos, too. 

I was really happy with the results from this shoot, too.

SARAH, MICHAEL & DEREK WEDDING -20SARAH, MICHAEL & DEREK WEDDING -20

 

Sarah got married in summer last year, and as a wedding gift her maid of honor, Becky, bought her a photoshoot. As with a lot of brides, Sarah wanted photos with Derek in her wedding dress, without the stress of trying to capture it on the day with everything else that goes on.

Derek is huge boy, an ex showjumper and a real softy. He took to the dress like a duck to water (though he was desensitised leading up to the photoshoot). Derek is stabled at a lovely livery yard near Burton-On-Trent, they're on the top of a hill and the views were amazing.

We were really lucky for November as well as the colours were gorgeous (they went well with the deep red of the wedding clothes) and the weather was actually lovely. We started with the ones of Sarah on Derek first, I remember all the other horses that were turned out were going mad in the field at the site of Derek covered in this beautiful dress, but Derek was completely oblivious. We then did the stood ones with him after and did a couple different locations for a bit of variety.

The Training Barn: Session Two

 

 

The second session with the Training Barn was all about business & branding. You'll have noticed over the last few months I've done a complete overhaul - from a new logo to a complete new experience for my clients in 2022. 

So a lot of the theory side of the session was about those sorts of things - of course we did some photoshoots too. 

 

The first day we did one with Hannah (she's one of the mentors) with Emily's pony in the garden. We were focusing on styling at this point, so Hannah bought a load of her clothes and we all picked what would work best together. It was really interesting going through what we thought would work in our mind and then seeing it actually on. 

I've now got lots of new styling tips to go into 2022! Here are some of the photos from the first day.

The second day we went over to a lovely lady called Sarah's house. This as a family photoshoot with her son, sister & sister's husband (the dog, too!) at their beautiful house in the New Forest. It was bright sunshine and a crisp morning, so I felt it was really good for me to get some practice shooting in these conditions.

Premier Performance -88Premier Performance -88

 

I had the privilege of working with the brand responsible for creating the famous "Calming Cookie" back in November. What's more is that their sponsored rider is Sir Lee Pearson MBE, which meant I was extremely lucky to work with him for a second time. In fact, he actually recommended me to them which was a real honor for me. 

 

Their lovely founder, Camilla, got in touch and we met at Sir Lee Pearson MBE's yard for the photoshoot. It was a lovely cool overcast day, which was the total opposite of working in the boiling heat of the summer last time I was there. 

Sir Lee Pearson MBE had been closely supported by Premier Performance CZ at the Tokyo Paralympics 2021 earlier that year. I must say I was glued to the tele whenever Lee & Breezer were in the ring cheering them on from the UK.

 

Camilla & the Premier Performance CZ team have been an absolute pleasure to work with and listening to her chat to Lee's team about the supplements and how to use them leading up to the competitions & demos they had planned was an amazing insight. 

 

You'll find my photos scattered throughout their social media channels.

Fran booked a photoshoot in with her lovely mare, Jazz, after having a photoshoot with her puppy back in the summer. Jazz is a gorgeous 8 year old Irish Sports Horse x Warmblood steel grey mare, who Fran wants to showjump. They had been together less than a year when we did our photoshoot back in October 2021, not that you would know. 

 

We were blessed with some beautiful colours of autumn, but unfortunately a few rain showers, too. They are stabled on a lovely livery yard in Swadlincote in Derbyshire with lots of lovely scenery and hacking.

What happens on your equine photoshoot day?
 

Training Barn Day 1 -50Training Barn Day 1 -50

 

 

The day has finally come, how exciting! 

I wanted to walk you through what happens on your equine photoshoot day. I know for most people the idea of having their photo taken can seem a little overwhelming. Thoughts of the boohoo-paparazzi-style photoshoot pop into your head and you couldn't think of anything worse. To be honest, neither could I. 

Surprisingly enough I also hate having my photo taken, so I can totally relate to what you may be thinking and feeling running up to your photoshoot day.

First things first, I promise you it's going to be loads of fun. This day is about spending time with your horse and making lots of happy memories on the way. You will almost definitely forget I'm there to take photos. 

 

Louise & Nero TB Day 2 -52Louise & Nero TB Day 2 -52

 

On the day, I'll arrive at your chosen location at the agreed time. The first thing we will do is take a look around your yard, this way I can have a look for the best locations for photos and check where the light is falling in those locations (bonus points if we can have a cuppa!).

It's a good idea to ask your yard owner where you can and can't go for photos. I'll make a few little suggestions along the way, too. We won't go anywhere you or your horse isn't comfortable with.

If you have somewhere in particular on the location you'd like a photo, let me know so we can get that shot for you.

 

Training Barn Day 1 -58Training Barn Day 1 -58

 

Now it's time to look at your outfits. I love this part. Of course, we would have already chatted about your different outfit ideas in the pre-consultation, but we will just spend a quick few minutes looking at everything you've bought (hopefully a suitcase full!) and planning what accessories/jackets we can add to each outfit along the way. 

We usually split this into 3 main outfits, and do roughly 20 minutes of photoshoot time in each, with a nice break for your horse in between whilst you're getting changed. 

 

Louise & Nero TB Day 2 -46Louise & Nero TB Day 2 -46

 

Once we've worked our way through your location and outfits, it's time to wrap things up. Your horse will get lots of cuddles and pats before I head off and there will be the chance for you to see any frame/album samples if you'd like to. I'll get in touch over the next few days to book your viewing in.

 

Photoshoots are a whole lot of fun - from start to finish it's about making happy memories for you & your horse. I'm on hand throughout the entire process to answer any questions you might have, too.

Preparing Your Horse For A Photoshoot In Winter - Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/1/preparing-your-horse-for-a-photoshoot-in-winter---lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Preparing Your Horse For A Photoshoot In Winter
 

Beth & Dibble-67Beth & Dibble-67

 

Frosty mornings, pink sunrises, tweed jackets, fury headbands... there are lots of reasons to love the outcome of a photoshoot in winter. 

I wanted to offer a few tips on prepping your horse for the special day, should you decide that winter is the season for you.

 

When prepping for your photoshoot, it's important to keep your horses routine as normal as possible. This will prevent them getting stressed out and wound up on your photoshoot day, which is something we really want to avoid.

 

1. Clipping

If your horse is clipped in winter, make sure you clip them no later than a week before the photoshoot. This means any lines won't be visible on camera as it gives them enough time to grow out, whilst your horse is still sporting that freshly clipped look.

 

2. Bathing/Hot Clothing

Whether your horse is clipped or not, you'll want to consider bathing them the day before your photoshoot. Especially if they're grey or have any white socks. If you don't have appropriate facilities to bath in winter, consider hot clothing the day before instead. 

 

Add a tiny dot of fair liquid to a bucket of warm water, dip in a tea towel or cloth and ring out as much as possible. Then rub in circular motions all over your horses body. This will lift any grease, stains and dirt from their coat without the need for a full bath. 

 

Nobody wants a poo-stains or muddy manes in their photos, so it's best to get these washed off the day before if possible. If not, bring in a few hours before your photoshoot so they've got enough time to dry. 

Please allow plenty of time for your horse to dry off - trust me if your horse has wet patches you will definitely notice these in your final images.

 

Em & Mouse (107)Em & Mouse (107)

 

3. Tack Cleaning

Clean any pieces of tack the day before as if you were going to a show. I always recommend a leather headcollar and bridle (we can alternate between the two), and if you're planning some ridden shots make sure your saddle, girth, saddle cloths and any boots/bandages you wish to use are clean, too. I also recommend a black/brown/navy lead rope, but if you don't have one I always carry a spare.

 

4. Plaiting/Trimming

Get any trimming you need to do done a couple of days before - the less you have to do on your photoshoot day, the less stress you will be under and the more you will enjoy the whole experience.

If you're planning to plait, plait the night before or a few hours before we're due to start (if you've got a horse that like to rub them out).

 

Rachel, Wellington & Henry (120)Rachel, Wellington & Henry (120)

 

5. The Finishing Touches

Hoof oil is a must have for your photoshoot, but don't put any on until we're ready to start. If you put hoof oil on in the stable too early, straw/shavings will get stuck to them and you'll have to apply it again anyway. 

 

Does your horse have a favourite treat? It's best to bring a little something for them as a reward during the photoshoot. I will have some polos with me, but if your horse can't have sugary things, or they prefer something else, please bring it with you. I try not to treat too much throughout the course of the photoshoot to prevent any fingers getting nibbled and when we really need a treat your horse will be more interested if they're given less often. 

 

If your horse is fully clipped and it's a cold day, please make sure you have a fleece rug handy to be chucked on when moving between locations. We will shoot in shorter bursts on colder days so they can stay warm in between.
Of course, the same goes for you, too. Please bring a nice warm overcoat if you have one to stay warm in between, especially if your outfit choices are on the cooler side.

MAISY & GINNY-19MAISY & GINNY-19

 

These photos of Ginny were a surprise gift for her owner from her daughter for her mums birthday. 

We snuck in a photoshoot at their house in Derbyshire whilst she was at work. 

Chestnuts look so beautiful against the autumn colours, and I think Ginny had as much fun as I did. 

We created some liberty shots of her cantering in the field (with the help of a feed bucket at the other side) and we used the stable block to create some black & white background images.

 

Something like this can easily be added to the end of any equine photoshoot to create some beautiful pieces of art for the wall.

What a lovely photoshoot this was. I had loads of fun visiting Charlotte and her horses back in October last year at their stables in Derbyshire. Charlotte had just decided to retire her heart horse, Sammy, and she had decided to mark the occasion with some photos.

When I asked Charlotte what her dream image was, she said she'd really love a photo of all four of her horses together. Of course with three of them being mares and Charlotte only having two arms it can feel a little stressful trying to get this sort of photo.

We had a little chat about who would be best stood next to each other, and with the help of Charlotte's mum (who stood just out of shot), I was ready and waiting to take the image. We decided to take the photo in the school as it felt like a safe enclosed space where everyone would feel most calm & comfortable.

We also included Charlotte's lovely German Shepard, Delta in some of the photos. Delta also got some of the limelight at the end where we had a play in the field and I got some photos of just her, and some of her & Charlotte to finish off.

Behind The Scenes Of An Equine Photoshoot

 

 

I wanted to show you a little camera magic on the blog this week.

I got to go and visit my sponsored rider, Beth and her new pony, Dibble, last week.

I love visiting my sponsored girls, it's so nice to catch up with them and it also gives me a chance to capture some behind the scenes stuff. 

 

So I wanted to share the difference between what you see, and what I see through my camera. 

The first image below is taken on a phone, and the ones after are the results from my camera. We just used this little grass area with a tree, it was also pretty cold and the middle of winter, which just goes to show how you can get beautiful photos at this time of year, too.

We started off doing some standing shots, and then I got Beth to walk slowly down the track towards me with Dibble.

 

06436484-012E-47AD-9941-8142159F30A706436484-012E-47AD-9941-8142159F30A7 Beth & Dibble-8Beth & Dibble-8 Beth & Dibble-5Beth & Dibble-5 Beth & Dibble-16Beth & Dibble-16 Beth & Dibble-29Beth & Dibble-29 Beth & Dibble-26Beth & Dibble-26

 

 

The next location we used was another track in a different area of the yard. It's a beautiful walkway with oak trees lining one side, and a sheep field on the other. 

Again, I got Beth & Dibble to walk slowly towards me and then I took some of them stood still on the same track, 

 

 

023D2B05-C386-4C68-A4BF-E348CE3128D8023D2B05-C386-4C68-A4BF-E348CE3128D8 Beth & Dibble-66Beth & Dibble-66 Beth & Dibble-67Beth & Dibble-67 Beth & Dibble-69Beth & Dibble-69 Beth & Dibble-72Beth & Dibble-72

 

It's amazing what a little camera magic can do, and I hope this gives you a little insight into what it's like behind the scenes on a photoshoot with me.

The Limited Edition Dog Day
 

Freddie Faves7Freddie Faves7

 

I held a limited edition dog day back in October last year, and I had lots of lovely dogs to photograph. The limited edition sessions are "mini" or shorter sessions I hold throughout the year that give you a little taste of what it's like to work with me for a more affordable price. A lot of my lovely limited edition clients go on to book full sessions at a later date so they can get the full experience, too.

 

If you're interested in booking a limited edition slot, sign up to my newsletter so you can be first to hear about any upcoming dates.

Here are some of the images from the day of all the wonderful dogs I got to work with...

The Training Barn: Session One

 

TB Day 1 -9TB Day 1 -9

 

Back in September I decided it was time to really level up my skill set when it comes to my photography. I started a year long mentorship with the Training Barn down in the New Forest in Hampshire. 

It's a year long course designed to go through every aspect of an equine photography business, from the photography itself, to the marketing, branding, shoot structure, lighting, composition, settings, you name it we learn about it here. 

I'm on the course with 5 other amazing equine photographers, and the course is ran by Emily Hancock & Hannah Freeland, which are two of the top equine photographers in the UK. 

 

It's been amazing to connect and learn from these wonderful people, and luckily I've got another 5 sessions down there between now & July 2022 to look forward to. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me, I always come away from the Training Barn Studio feeling so inspired and fired up to create more beautiful images for my clients. 

 

Here are some images from the first day. We worked on shoot structure, and dealing with bright direct sunlight (which is something I can sometimes struggle with). We went just outside the studio into the New Forest National Park for this one, which was a fab experience as it was different to the normal yard setup.. Models are the gorgeous Harry (dun) & Meadow (chestnut) with owner Jadde & her friend.

For the second day we met with the lovely Emily with her 28 year old gelding Charlie at their home in the New Forest for some photos. This was a great location because we just had a field & a field shelter to use. So it was a great challenge coming up with a variety of shots. Here are some photos from that morning...

The Welcome Pack & Pre-consultation -Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/1/the-welcome-pack-pre-consultation--lunar-photography-equine-dog-photographer-derbyshire  

Grace, Sparkie, Bruce & Merlot 15Grace, Sparkie, Bruce & Merlot 15

 

With the new year in full swing, I wanted to explain a little more about my new process for 2022. 

I'm really excited about this, and I can't wait to give my clients a more luxury and bespoke service going forward. I appreciate everyone likes different things, so with that in mind, I've ditched the fixed packages and now do a simple shoot fee that covers the session & a beautiful big frame. This means you can choose what you like product wise once you've seen your images and we can build a bespoke package to suit you.

 

You know I'm a fan of big frames, so every shoot comes with a big 20 x 16 inch solid wood frame that's ready to hang. You can choose your favourite image from our photoshoot to go in it, and the frame comes in a choice of different colours to suit any interior.

 

Screenshot 2021-11-26 at 15.40.17Screenshot 2021-11-26 at 15.40.17

 

I'm going to walk you through my new experience, so you know exactly what to expect when you book with me. This starts with my beautiful new printed welcome pack. 

 

Once you've booked and secured your chosen date, you will receive one of my beautiful printed welcome packs in the post. This contains a welcome guide and a style guide packed with loads of information about the photoshoot, how to prepare for the photoshoot and what to expect before, during and after your equine or dog photoshoot. You may also find a little treat or two in there as well. 

It covers all the basics before we have our pre-consultation chat over the phone a few weeks before your photoshoot date, so you can get a good overview ready to ask me any specific questions you may have. 

 

WELCOME PACK-11WELCOME PACK-11

 

The pre-consultation chat is a really informal chat on the phone that gives us a chance to get to know each other better. You can tell me all about your lovely horse and/or dog, where you want to have your photoshoot, what outfits work best on the photoshoot day and most importantly, what that special photo is that you've always dreamed of. 

 

This usually takes about 15-30 minutes, and we can do it at any time to suit you. 

 

WELCOME PACK-5WELCOME PACK-5

 

I know it can be scary having a photoshoot, so my welcome pack & pre-consult chat are designed to help put you at ease before the special day so you know what to expect. 

 

A photoshoot is a fun and special experience, and it's a chance to make lots of precious, happy memories with your horse and dog.

Willow - A Dog Photoshoot in The Peak District With Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2022/1/willow---a-dog-photoshoot-in-the-peak-district-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

WILLOW-133WILLOW-133

 

After connecting with Leanne on instagram, she booked a shoot for her gorgeous little dog, Willow, for October last year. Her and her partner made the most of it, and decided to book a holiday in the Peak District so they could have a photoshoot up here.

 

We chose Curbar Edge as our location, it's got stunning views and lots of different terrain to take photos with, which is great for dog photoshoots. If you're lucky (like we were) we got a beautiful golden hour and sunset, too. 

It was a little windy, but Willow didn't mind. We had loads of fun throwing the ball and running around. I think it's safe to say she really enjoyed herself, too!

 

WILLOW-93WILLOW-93

 

"I’ve followed Imogen on Instagram for a while and loved all of her work so I knew it was going to be amazing! I was so excited to book my photoshoot. I didn't have any worries before booking as I trusted Imogen to just do what she does and I knew I would love the outcome.

Our photoshoot went so well, she was so good with Willow and finding the perfect spots to take the pictures. Our favourite part was seeing Willow run around enjoying all the attention, living her best life. 

The photos are so good and they make me so happy, I would definitely book with Imogen again!"

Emily & Dolly

 

Emily & Dolly Favourites 2Emily & Dolly Favourites 2

 

Emily's mum got in touch about having some photos of their gorgeous family pony, Dolly, back in September last year. Dolly is 19 and has been ridden by both her daughters and so they wanted to capture some memories as a keepsake just in case anything happens. 

We did the photoshoot at their farm near Coventry, and we were blessed with a beautiful clear autumn evening. 

I think my highlight from this shoot was watching Emily & dolly gallop through a stubble field with her arms stretched out in the sunshine. This is surely what childhood pony memories are made of?

It was a very interesting day weather wise, with the heavens opening every now and again and a lot of wind! We still managed to get some beautiful photos of them, and in the end they went with my gorgeous 9in1 frame to display Evie's beautiful photos.

Evie enjoyed the whole experience & receiving the photos at the end, & the lovely horse treats were a lovely touch. 

The photos were even better than we'd hoped and the photos make us extremely happy when we look back at them."

Katie & Desi - An Equine Photoshoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/12/katie-desi---an-equine-photoshoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

Katie wanted a large image to go up in her bedroom with her & Desi in normal clothes as she didn't have any mementos of them both together like this.

I think often we forget about capturing those special moments behind the scenes & although we have loads of photos with our horses out competing, we don't have many quality ones that capture those precious moments away from the pressure and stress of a competition. 

I love creating things that I know are going to allow a client to relive those precious moments over and over again for years to come, and a huge frame ready to hang does just that!

I've known Katie & Desi for a while as they attend a local riding club that I photograph for throughout the summer. They regularly compete in Dressage, and at the time of our photoshoot, Desi was in rehab for a recent injury that unfortunately meant they had to take some time out from competitions.

 

They stable on a beautiful old dairy farm not far from me in Derbyshire, and we were blessed with a beautiful evening and sunset to finish off. 

 

When I asked Katie what her dream photo was, she said she really wanted one of her on Desi bareback, in the red dress that she had brought with her. 

 

Katie & Desi 57Katie & Desi 57

 

 

"I booked a photoshoot because I wanted to have some momento photos with my horse as we were going through some worrying times with vet visits. Imogen always provides a very friendly service, I had spoken to her a few times at competitions and she has always been very friendly and inviting.

Imogen made everything feel very comfortable and natural. The photos and quality of service were worth every penny and there memories I will be able to always treasure.
The whole thing was very relaxed, I’m not normally one to have my photo taken but Imogen provided me with the confidence to do so. She even knew all the best locations to have the most perfect photos taken!

My favourite part was receiving my images and seeing the beautiful photos that she captured - they capture Desi in the most perfect way!"

Another pair I've been following on instagram for a while. I love Pip, she is the sweetest mare ever, and I'm a sucker for a grey Connie!

 

We did our photoshoot on Mogg's Eye Beach in Lincolnshire, this was a first for me, and I usually  photograph at yard so this was certainly a new challenge. 

We were blessed with a beautiful calm overcast day in the middle of September, and we had loads of fun. Pip found it extremely exciting going to the beach for the first time, at first she was convinced there were sharks in the sea, so we started off in the dunes and slowly worked out way back to the waves. Towards the end she had settled and they managed to have a canter on the edge of the sea. 

 

 

Ella & Pip 97Ella & Pip 97
 

 

"I was a bit nervous and I was worried how my pony would behave as it was a completely new environment, but it went well! Imogen was very calm and made me feel relaxed even if Pip wasn’t overly cooperative.

A lot of my friends on the yard had photos with Imogen, and the photos from my own photoshoot turned out to be everything I wanted and more. My favourite part was galloping along the beach, and I feel so emotional (in a good way) when I look back at my photos."

Chrissy & Family 24Chrissy & Family 24

 

I was so excited when Chrissy got in touch to book a photoshoot with her family. I've known Chrissy for a few years, and she wanted this as part of her 40th birthday celebrations. 

Chrissy has two gorgeous dogs, Paddy & Fin, & her beautiful horse, Andrew. We also included her partner & baby in the photos, too. 

September is such a lovely time of year for a photoshoot, the straw had just been baled in the field and we had acres of rolling hills and farmland as the backdrop for our photo shoot. 

 

"I was so excited when I booked my photoshoot as just knew the photos would be amazing! I love the light in Imogen’s photographs. It’s beautiful and I also knew we would all feel super comfortable. And we did!

It’s is a big investment but it’s so worth it. I did worry about how our little one would manage on the day, but I really shouldn’t have Imogen was amazing with all the family. 

One word to describe the experience is amazing! My husband said to me as we drove home ‘I’ve had an amazing morning!’ and that to me summed up the photo shoot! My favourite part was watching all of my family have fun - four legged and two! My face hurt from smiling so much!

Imogen has thought of everything! From treats for poochies and ponies, to keeping our little one entertained!

We are all absolutely in love with the photos!"

When you're greeted by a lovely little sausage dog & springer spaniel, I think you know it's going to be a wonderful photo shoot!

Michelle & Brian wanted some photos of their dogs, Luna & Darcy, and their 4 horses, Josh, Raz, Alby & Izzy. They have a beautiful set up with the horses just outside the back door, and it really was a pleasure spending time with them all.

 

Michelle & Family 85Michelle & Family 85 Michelle & Family 80Michelle & Family 80

 

"Before our photoshoot I felt a little apprehensive as neither me or my husband are particularly photogenic! I saw the amazing photos from a friends photoshoot with Imogen and they looked so natural, not staged like a lot of photoshoots, which is why I chose to have a photoshoot with her.

The photoshoot went brilliantly. Imogen is a natural with the dogs and horses and made us all feel at ease.
My favourite part of the shoot was getting the horses stood all together with us as its a picture I've always wanted. The photos were better than I could have hoped for - I was surprised just how many Imogen managed to get!

I would definitely have a photoshoot with Imogen again!"

What a lovely fluffy boy Alfie is! We went for a walk on a route local to Alfie and his mum, Carol, for their photoshoot. It was in Hayfield, a beautiful part of the Peak District National Park.

Carol had been gifted a photoshoot from her niece for Christmas last year, and it was lovely to finally meet them and get the photoshoot done.

 

"The photoshoot went really well, Imogen put me & my dog totally at ease. My favourite part was seeing Alfie pose like a pro, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I'd 100% recommend to friends!"

Their yard backs onto some beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside, and was a gorgeous location for a photo shoot. We also got some photos of Grace jumping Sparkie at the end, too.

I was blessed with the most glorious Ashbourne sunset for this wonderful family photo shoot. Mind you, when you're greeted with Pizza on arrival I think you know it's going to be a great photo shoot. 

 

Gemm & Family 46Gemm & Family 46

 

"I was excited but nervous for our photo shoot, as I wasn't sure if the horses perform! I'd seen Imogen's photos and they were amazing. 

The whole photo shoot was amazing, the only worry I had was one of my horses is crap at putting her ears forward! Imogen bought out her secret weapon (a neighing app on her phone) and her ears pricked and everyone was happy!

I think we tested Imogen's amazing skills to the max with lots of requests! She smashed it! It was fab! 
I thoroughly enjoyed all of it from start to finish, from booking to receiving photos. The whole experience has been very smooth and we had a good few setbacks with ill ponies and a pandemic.

I am over the moon, they are precious memories to keep forever!"

Okay, so this has got to be one of my highlights of the summer! Does it get any cuter than a puppy in a sunflower field? I don't think so!

He was so well behaved as well, I was really impressed with how good he was throughout the entire photo shoot. 

We went to the sunflower field in Ashover, and I definitely want to visit again next year for some more photo shoots.

Talk about stables with a view! Megan's horses are kept at home, their stables are at the top of the hill behind their house and they look over the gorgeous Thorpe Cloud in the Peak District. It really is gorgeous up there, and we were blessed with a beautiful evening, too!

I've followed Megan on Instagram for a while, I love watching her & Rudy go team chasing, they always seem to be galloping around having loads of fun! Megan also wanted some photos of her older horse, Shamrock, and her beautiful dog, Bracken.

"I decided to book a shoot with Imogen after looking at all her work, her photos are just amazing! I was worried about what the photos would look like but they’re even better than I hoped & imagined!

Imogen was so calm and chilled and made me feel relaxed and happy. It didn’t even feel like I was having a photoshoot, just like I was spending time with my horses by myself!

I enjoyed the whole photo shoot and got some perfect pictures, I would definitely have another photo shoot with Imogen in the future!"

I was worried before the photo shoot because my daughter is so shy, however, Imogen put her at ease and she had a fab day. I was also worried that the weather would spoil the day however Imogen was more than happy to rearrange if necessary.
The photoshoot went fantastic, my daughter had an amazing time and created memories that will last forever! She really enjoyed changing her outfits & making different looks, and the photographs Imogen produced went above and beyond our expectations, they were spectacular.

My daughter is ecstatic with her photos, it was such a special day."

Ellie & Bunny - An Equine Photo Shoot With Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/10/ellie-bunny---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire Ellie & Bunny

This is a photo shoot that I will always hold very close to my heart. Such a lovely family and a special day. I will never forget it.

Bunny is Ellie's Connemara pony, they used to event together & do pony club until Bunny was diagnosed with reduced motility of the stomach at the beginning of the year. Catherine, Ellie's mum, booked a photo shoot with me because they weren't sure how long they had left with him.

"He owes us absolutely nothing" - Catherine's words that will stick in my mind forever. Our horses give us so much, don't they? 

 

Ellie & Bunny 106Ellie & Bunny 106

 

It was a really lovely evening in the summer sun at their beautiful home in Derbyshire, and we just enjoyed making happy memories to look back on, it was just a bonus I was there to capture it all. They had a feq beautiful frames made up afterwards, too. I got to hand deliver these and watch them open them which was just so lovely. I know they hang pride of place around their house now so they will never forget that day.

 

Ellie & Bunny 59Ellie & Bunny 59

 

"I felt a little apprehensive before our photo shoot with Bunny because we were on a short time-scale and I was worried that Imogen might not be able to fit us in. Our horse of a lifetime had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and we were desperate to capture the bond between Bunny and Ellie. 

We constantly monitored the weather prior to the photoshoot ,but having looked at other photoshoots Imogen had done in the rain, it would have been more than ok anyway. We expected, due to Bunny's illness, that we would only get a few head and shoulder pictures but were 'blown away' with the amount and quality Imogen captured.
It went really really well. It was taken in difficult circumstances but Imogen's lovely nature really helped and put us all totally at ease so we could all enjoy the experience and not think of the reason behind the photo shoot.

The whole photo shoot was just perfect, the investment is invaluable as the photos will be a constant memory forever."

Many months later I still can't believe I got to do this photo shoot! If you're Derbyshire based, you will definitely of heard of Bliss Bedding. In fact, I'd have said they were one of the biggest bedding companies around here. You can imagine my surprise when I got a call from Isabella inquiring about my business packages.

 

Having just started offering a business package at the beginning of 2021 I was really chuffed when they booked a photo shoot with me to include their sponsored riders which turned out to be Maddie Moffet (who I have actually had a lesson with before) AND Sire Lee Pearson MBE (paralympic gold medalist in Dressage).

What an experience this was - and it's a memory that I will treasure and look back on fondly for the rest of my life. 

Despite all the star strucked-ness (I know that's not a word), I still had a job to do, and it was great fun seeing both Maddy & Lee behind the scenes and creating some really fun and vibrant images for them to use on their new website & across social media. It was a privilege watching Lee & Breezer so close to Tokyo 2020 as well as they did some final preparations for the big event. 

Bliss Bedding was also one of the main sponsors at Blair Castle International Horse Trials, so they used some of the image there, too!

"We were searching for somebody who would be able to help give our brand a 'fresh' feel, and when we came across Imogen's work, we instantly knew that her photos would do just that! Imogen has a different approach compared to your conventional equestrian photographers, which gives her photos a very personal and unique feel.
Imogen was so friendly and professional throughout the entire process. She ensured everything ran smoothly on the day, and helped create a laid back atmosphere, whilst also ensuring we received beautiful and professional images.
We were incredibly impressed with both the quality and finish of Imogen's work, and feel we received the full value of our investment. The process was thoroughly enjoyable too, which was a massive bonus!
Imogen will certainly be our next port of call when we next require beautiful pictures in the future."

I finally managed to catch up with my sponsored rider Becky, and her two lovely horses Luna & Rio the other week. Normally it rains when we try and do something, so for one the weather was nice and we got a full photo shoot done! It was a good job really, because Becky actually sold Rio a few days later, and off he went to his new home. 

So it was lovely to know she had these special memories captured with her special horse before they said goodbye!

Jayne bought Sharon a photo shoot for her birthday after she lost years worth of photos on her phone. They're located on a lovely private yard up in the peak district - talk about school with a view! 

It was truly lovely spending time with these two wonderful ladies. Their friendship was so strong, and it was a pleasure to capture it for them! 
 

"I just wanted fabulous photos to sum up many happy years of time at our stables for my friends 60th birthday present... Imogen was easy to communicate with and put me at ease from the start. The pictures on the website were stunning and were just the type I was looking for as she captured the unique relationship between horse and owner.

 

Sharon, Kitty, Jayne & Scotty 25Sharon, Kitty, Jayne & Scotty 25


I was worried about the weather on the day (which we can't predict!) but Imogen reassured me that she would take that into consideration and if it wasn't suitable we could rearrange. The information she sent prior to the day gave us things to consider such as clean tack, outfit changes, keeping the horses routine's as normal as possible and this all helped enormously. I would advise anyone thinking of having a photoshoot just to take Imogen's advice and not worry!


The day was an absolute pleasure and a treasured memory in itself. Imogen was relaxed and therefore the horses were relaxed too and the whole experience was fun and we enjoyed every minute.

The photo's are stunning. There were loads to choose from! The images captured the personalities of our horses exactly and the relationship we have with them and each other. I look at them every day hanging on the wall and they never fail to make me smile! They are treasured memories."

I know this lovely family through photographing at Springwood show, so we got our photo shoot booked in for Leigh-Ann's birthday, and we also squeezed some photos in of Chloe and her two lovely ponies whilst I was there. 

 

Leigh-Ann has got two lovely cob, Archie & Teddy, and Chloe's two ponies are called Patsy & Rosie. 

 

It was a lovely summer's evening at their yard, we had a really lovely relaxed evening making some lovely memories for them to cherish together.

"I've always wanted a photo shoot, and Imogen always captured lovely photos at our local show. Before the photo shoot I can honestly say I was nervous, as it was something I have always wanted to do. I was worried the photos might not have been what I wanted but they are amazing, and I absolutely love them and exceeded my expectations!

I loved the whole day, spending time with my horses and capturing moments that are truly natural and not posed. I just love the emotional connection I have and that can be seen within my photos. I enjoyed the outfit changes, and I also enjoyed the laughs we had and it was lovely and relaxed I was rushed which is great.

The photo shoot was way over my expectations. I love the photos and I will treasure them forever. Imogen even came back a few days later to capture a few black background photos of my horses that I forgot to ask for which really made my day! 

My photo shoot was absolutely worth the investment, the photos make me feel so emotional and happy, and there's no price on memories that will last forever."

We did this photo shoot at Golden Valley Equestrian Centre, it was quite a windy day too, which always presents its challenges. Charlie (her piebald cob) is a cheeky chappy, but he was a really good boy letting Ellie-May sit on him with her big dress on! 

 

We also did some photos with her mums horse, Nan, too.

This was my second photo shoot this year with this lovely pair, and it was so lovely to do something completely different than the first time.

The weather was totally different, and we went into the nature reserve for some photos which gave us some completely fresh images compared to last time. It rained so heavily on my way to Charlotte's yard, I was worried we wouldn't get to take any photos. Lucky for us, the dark clouds stayed but the sun shone through, which threw out some amazing golden colours for our photo shoot.

Charl's yard is situated in Nottingham on the edge of Clifton Nature Reserve, it is a really lovely photo location. She also wanted to get her boyfriend in a couple of photos this time, which we managed to do!

Katy & Ginny - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/8/katy-ginny---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Katy & Ginny

 

Katy & Ginny 60Katy & Ginny 60

 

Katy has had her lovely little new forest pony for 14 years now, and she'd always wanted to do a photo shoot. Ginny is stabled at a lovely quiet yard on the edge of the Peak District, and again we were blessed with a lovely evening after it threatened to rain all week!

I loved this photo shoot so much... Katy made three amazing outfit choices, and their bond is so strong, it really shines through in the final images. They were both an absolute pleasure to work with.

 

I really struggled to narrow down the photo selection for this blog post so you'll have to excuse the amount of photos - I honestly love them all!

 

Katy & Ginny 67Katy & Ginny 67

 

"I was a little apprehensive prior to the photoshoot as the forecast wasn’t great and I was worried this would affect the photos. I was also worried as my pony can be a little uncooperative when it comes to affection so I didn’t think I would get any cuddly photos with her.
Imogen was very reassuring throughout the process and I’m so glad we went ahead as the sun came out and Imogen captured our special bond and understanding perfectly.

I really enjoyed the whole experience! Imogen was absolutely amazing at finding the perfect photo spots on the yard and was so creative throughout! I felt really confident and the photos felt very natural and there was lots of laughter throughout.

 

Katy & Ginny 6Katy & Ginny 6

 

My favourite part was being able to wear a dress and canter up the fields with the wind in my hair and to know it was being captured by Imogen was even better! I also loved how natural it felt and how much Ginny seemed to enjoy it too!
The photos were honestly amazing! I loved every single one and they exceeded all expectations!

 

The photos make me so happy and emotional at the same time! I really think you can see in the pictures how much I adore her and the bond we have. My photo shoot was worth every penny and I will treasure the photos forever."

Rachel, Bob & Family - An Equine Photo Shoot With Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/8/rachel-bob-family---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

I had a photo shoot last month with this lovely handsome chestnut horse, Bob, and his family to celebrate his 30th birthday!

You would never tell his age from looking at him mind, he looks so well! 

It was such a privilege to capture these special memories. It's clear to see how much of a special boy he is, and how many years of joy he has bought their family over the years. 

I must admit he knew all the tricks to getting him ears forward and for that reason some quite creative star jumps came out behind the scenes to get him smiling. 

The photo shoot took place on their yard up in Chesterfield, and luckily the rain held off. We got some absolutely gorgeous images that I know they will treasure forever.

"Before the photo shoot I felt a bit nervous as I lack self confidence. But after seeing Imogen's other images and hearing feedback, I decided to book with her.
It was a really fun experience, and Imogen put me at complete ease during & after the photo shoot.

I enjoyed all the different poses Imogen suggested. It was so much fun & I felt completely at ease throughout. I didn't want the photo shoot to end!

It was definitely worth the investment and I now have beautiful memories to look back on."

I had a photo shoot with these three lovely little dogs up in Wingerworth as a present for their mum, Steph. She had received a gift card from her sister for her birthday.

We went to a lovely location down the road from their house, through a meadow and into some woods surrounded by a lovely field. The dogs had lots of fun and enjoyed running around looking for squirrels.

I had a photo shoot with these three lovely doggies after Lesley (their mum) won an auction to raise money for Sarah's Podencos. This is a charity I have worked  with closely over the last few years. Due to covid it was a long time coming and it was lovely to finally meet them all.

We did the photo shoot at a Pawz Let Loose in Pinxton, which is a secure field so the doggies could run free stress free!

 

It was a lovely summer evening, and the dogs all had an amazing time.

Still unsure?

LET'S HAVE A CHAT


 

 

 

"I am so so happy with the pictures. Looking at them makes me smile and I show everyone when I get a chance!
Before my photo shoot I was nervous about how the shoot would go with how I looked and if my dogs would behave. I was also nervous about having to pose for pictures as I had never done a photo shoot before... But now I would definitely do it again! Had one of the best days and we were so lucky with the weather.

I decided to book with Imogen at Lunar Photography because I had seen pictures done by Imogen before and really wanted to capture similar ones with my dogs. The photo shoot ran really well! We managed to get to all three locations in good time and I got all pictures I dreamed off. Imogen put us all at ease and we all had such a fun day laughing and joking.
My favourite part was seeing how happy the dogs were and visualising how the pictures would potentially look like. I got all the photos I imagined, and they were even better than I expected! It was 100% worth the money!"

Abbey, Mikey, Bella & Bramble

 

 

 

 



How is your photography different to other people?

I don't use photoshop... so everything you see in my images is real. To me, your relationship with your dog is perfect the way it is. My minimal editing style give the photos a gorgeous, natural & timeless feel. So I know you will love them forever.

 

What happens if it rains?

No one wants soggy photos, I completely get that. I always do a rain check the day before, so if we need to reschedule due to weather, we simply do just that. There is no charge for this either. If the weather is scheduled to be bad, I will reschedule this date.

 

Can I have multiple dogs?

Of course! Unlike most photographers, I don't charge for extra dogs or family members. The more the merrier if you ask me! Just let me know how many fury & human family members I can expect so I can plan timings accordingly.

 

What if my dog can't be let off the lead?

If your dog can't go off the lead, I'd always recommend hiring a secure field for your photo shoot. This means they can have a blast and no one has to worry about them running off!

 

Do I have to be in the photos?

Not at all. If you'd like your dog to be the star of the show, that's perfectly fine! I can always feature you in other ways, such as your hand touching your dog's chin etc. I always encourage you to be in a couple, it's not the paparazzi style photo shoot you might think. I promise you it's not awkward and you won't feel like you're having your photo taken.

 

How long is a photo shoot?

this special limited edition dog package is a 30 minute session.

 

Do you do a payment plan?

It's just a £50 non-refundable booking fee to secure your chosen date. It's up to you if you'd like to pay off in chunks between booking and your photo shoot, but the balance must be paid BEFORE the day of your photo shoot. 

 

"I'm not sure if this is the right time for me..."

If there is one thing I can say to you it's this... We never know what's around the corner with our fury friends. Unfortunately, I have had a few people message me in the past wishing they'd taken the chance and booked a photo shoot whilst their dog was still with us. I wish I had had one with my heart horse before I had to sell him, it will be something I will always regret. 

 

 

 



I am the dog photographer for you if...

You're looking for a fun & stress free experience

You want vibrant & natural photos of you & your dog

You don't want to wait ages to see your finally gallery

Izzy & Harry - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/7/izzy-harry---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Izzy & Harry

Me & Izzy teamed up after meeting through instagram in order to do my sizzling summer giveaway back in June. I don't often do giveaways, so I made this one really big, with the prize being worth over £850 and involving some really fabulous up & coming brands! 

I went over to Izzy's yard in Leicester where her loan pony, Harry, is stabled. Harry is a Welsh section D, and together they did a lot of showing & showjumping. Unfortunately they found out recently that he has an injury which means he will only be able to do light hacking from now on, which is so disappointing as they'd qualified for loads of fun things together this year!

 

Izzy & Harry68Izzy & Harry68

 

Their yard was so welcoming, with tonnes of stunning bridleways from the back through fields, and we were even treated to a tiny bit of sunset before it rained right at the very end! Izzy is a keen equine photographer, too, which always adds a little extra bit of pressure.

My job was made easy thanks to their incredible bond, I feel like their love radiates from the images.

 

Izzy & Harry58Izzy & Harry58

 

 

"Imogen has a lovely warm personality. I was pretty nervous for having my photos taken. However, nothing was too much trouble and she really put me at ease. It was also great that there were numerous outfit changes allowed, so I could get photos that varied.

Imogen has a lot of patience, especially with animals and is really great at getting them to stay alert and keep their ears forward with the tricks she has up her sleeves.

She is very knowledgeable about lighting conditions, making the best out of her surroundings & settings and her experience with animal photography shows through with the finished results.

On top of all of this there is a wonderful viewing platform for when the photos are ready to see that helps the whole experience. I was absolutely delighted with the finished results and now have memories of Harry and I to cherish forever.


Thank you Imogen, you really are such a talented photographer!"

Just a little pre warning... this one is quite emotional. 

Jasmine contacted me wanting a photo shoot of her and her lovely cob gelding, John, after she found out he had sustained an injury which means he can't be ridden again. 

She has made the heartbreaking decision to give him the summer, and then say goodbye. 

Jasmine wanted a photo shoot to capture all the happy memories of them together before things get a little more tough.

 

The photo shoot took place at their lovely livery yard in Collingham, Nottingham. And my goodness did the sun shine for us - it perfectly matched the flower crown & garland we had planned for the final outfit choice!

 

Jasmine & John 142Jasmine & John 142

 

"I was nervous before booking as this photo shoot was very important to me. I wanted to make sure I found the right photographer that captured the bond me and John have. I came across Imogen’s photos on Instagram and instantly fell in love. I couldn’t believe how natural and beautiful they were! Even after shopping around and looking at other photographers, I always came back to Imogen’s photos so I knew she was the right photographer for me.
 

I was very nervous about the way I would look in the photos as I know Imogen does not use photoshop. I was also nervous of not getting the photos I wanted on the day due to lack of time, badly behaved horse etc. Now I look at the photos and I couldn’t be happier. Imogen was so patient on the day and the photos have such a lovely natural feel to them!
 

Jasmine & John 75Jasmine & John 75

 

The photo shoot was an amazing experience and Imogen put my worries at ease. The entire event was fun and never felt forced which really helped with keeping both myself and John relaxed.
The pictures exceeded my expectations and make me so happy to look at.


Even now, the photos bring a tear to my eye and make me very emotional. I’m so happy to have made the decision to create such beautiful memories with my horse of a lifetime."

Kitty & Squiffy - An Equine Photo Shoot With Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/7/kitty-squiffy---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

I went down to London last month to do a photo shoot for these two - and I have to say Squiffy is the best name for a pony I've ever come across. He is the cutest, and it was a pleasure photographing his & Kitty's bond.

They're stabled on a lovely friendly yard next door to Ham Polo Club (if you didn't know that's where the royals play polo), and they have a perfect spot through the fence they can watch all the games, which is fantastic!

 

 

The yard is in the middle of a beautiful country park surrounding Ham House, and we were blessed with a hot summers day down in London (which is definitely a theme whenever I go down there for some reason!).

Kitty does all sorts with Squiffy, including showjumping & eventing. I really enjoying following them on instagram and seeing what they get up to. 

And of course we also had time at the end for some photos of their lovely family dogs, Honey, Maple & Cookie.

 

Kitty & Squiffy 122-minKitty & Squiffy 122-min

 

"Having researched a number of equine photographers on Instagram we knew Imogen was the one for us. Her captures are beautiful and unique, and a major bonus for us is she also photographs dogs. After seeing her photos on insta we thought they were so well placed both in seeking out the perfect back drop and in her use of natural light.


Before the photo shoot we had no worries whatsoever. Imogen is such a warm, easygoing animal and people person. The entire shoot was seamless, easy and extremely enjoyable! Not an easy feat with a pony and 3 dogs! The photo my daughter choose as her favourite to be framed now hangs pride of place over her bed.

 

Kitty & Squiffy 12-minKitty & Squiffy 12-min

 

The photo shoot was seamless. Imogen is so lovely and warm. The whole experience was professional but most of all, calm and fun! Our favourite part was walking between areas to seek out backdrops and light. Imogen found some great spots! 

The photos turned out even better than expected and my daughter constantly comments on how beautiful the photo she has framed is over her bed before she goes to bed. I think that speaks for itself."

We had our photo shoot at a lovely yard in the village of Eyam - Molly herself was the model, and we used their 3 lovely horses to show off their fab range of riding leggings & bridles.

These lovely ladies are a Mother and Daughter team who have noticed a huge increase in competition equine stores and a reduction in equestrian stores selling clothing and equipment for the everyday rider/horse owner. 

They decided to launch their own store of practical equipment at affordable prices, to cater for riders and owners just like them.

"We booked a photo shoot with Imogen because we were struggling with content and our own pictures looked amateur - I saw her work on Instagram and thought it looked really natural but professional, which is what we aim for as a brand.

We felt the images definitely helped communicate our brand messaging, they reflect our brand perfectly and we already had an influx of sales the day we put them up!

The photo shoot went really well, Imogen was great and made me feel at ease as the ‘model’ which is something I don’t enjoy! It all ran really smoothly and I was grateful for Imogen’s direction and input. The photos turned out better than we had hoped for, we are over the moon with how it all turned out!
 

The photos have given us more confidence as a brand now that we have the images to match our brand image and message."

This was actually my second photo shoot with Katie & her lovely horses. We did one last year on my limited edition day, so it was lovely to see her again. The photo shoot took place on the yard they're stabled at in Foston, Derbyshire. 

Katie enjoys dressage and showjumping with her horses, and has recently become a fully qualified vet. She is about to go over to Dubai for a year as her first year of placement, and so she wanted to have some lovely photos with her horses to look back on whilst she is away.

"I’m moving away for a year & wanted some photos of the ponies before I go… I’d had a shoot with Imogen before & loved it so she was definitely my first choice for who to go to with this! 

Before my photo shoot I was feeling nervous because I hate having my photo taken & at the moment am feeling very self conscious about numerous things so I was very worried about how the photos would turn out & whether I would be pleased with the end result…

 

Katie, Miffy, Red & Tilly 53-minKatie, Miffy, Red & Tilly 53-min

 

I shouldn’t have been at all worried, Imogen put me at complete ease so I actually really enjoyed the process! It wasn’t anything like having your questions photo taken, more about just having fun & spending time with your horse! Even though my horses weren’t always the most helpful we had a laugh & it made the whole session very enjoyable!

My favourite part was spending time with my horses & capturing those moments in beautiful photos - the photos turned out even better than I expected and I am over the moon with the result! Such good quality products as part of the package & I’m so so pleased I decided to do the shoot! Perfect mementos to take away with me!"

I have been photographing at Shireen's clinics for the last year or so now, so it was lovely to go to her yard and see behind the scenes and meet her lovely two horses & dog.

 

Jazz & Pie are both thoroughbreds, and in Shireen's words, a little "spicy"! Arty, her lovely dog, gacve us the best zoomies display I could wish for, and was a pleasure to photograph, too. 

 

Shireen is based at a gorgeous yard in Collingham, Nottinghamshire, and boy were were blessed with a stunning evening!

"Before my photo shoot I was quite excited and a little nervous I’ve wanted to book one for ages! 
When I started running clinics there was only one name on my list of people I wanted as my photographer, after seeing the photos from those I knew she was the person I wanted to photograph me and the boys. I really wanted someone who could capture our bond and deal with our spiciness.

The whole process in the build up was really calming and informative and I knew that Imogen would take gorgeous photos of the boys and the dog. I was mainly worried about how I would look!
 

The whole photo shoot was amazing! We had great laughs, and Imogen took some beautiful photos that I didn’t even realise she was taking. Part of the reason I chose her is because I knew there would be no forced posing. Because the photos were so natural and candid they caught the exact vibe that I had in my head and the results were just amazing!
