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.

"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!"

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.

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  

 

Kitty & Squiffy

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.

 

Katie, Miffy, Red & Tilly 34-minKatie, Miffy, Red & Tilly 34-min

 

 

"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!

 

Shireen, Jazz, Arty & Pie-78Shireen, Jazz, Arty & Pie-78

 

My favourite part was riding jazz bareback and the dog trying to run Imogen over! Also actually seeing the finished product, that was amazing.

The result is the most dreamy perfect magical photos I could have ever imagined and it’s like they’ve been taken right out of my head. I love them so much, I never thought that they could be so perfect! I really enjoyed the whole process from start to finish and I’m so glad I booked it!
 

The photos are incredible! I would never in a million years have expected them to come out like that. You made me look amazing and the boys are just perfect. I’m so glad you captured these moments. I would definitely book another photo shoot with Imogen, I'm thinking one in winter in the snow..."

Kim from Idyllwild horsemanship booked a photo shoot with me for her lovely nottinghamshire based business in May. She wanted some professional imagery for her marketing materials and social media channels.

Kim coaches natural horsemanship, with a mission to help horses and their people form harmonious and balanced relationships. It was a real privilege watching her work her lovely horse Snoox for the photos - Watching a horse and rider work together with no bridle and saddle always amazes me. Kim has worked in 3 different continents, and has a great deal of experience with all sorts of horses.

Kim also rides Western style - which is a first for me photography wise! The tack is just beautiful and as a whole it was just a really enjoyable experience for me. 

We finished off taking some photos of her gorgeous little dog Mavis, who was really good fun and very cute!

"I booked a business photo shoot with Imogen after I saw all the lovely reviews about her, and her gorgeous photos on instagram. I was worried about the investment but I’m funny with money anyway, and also worried about the weather! Now I’m absolutely satisfied re. The investment, really pleased with the service and my photos!

The photo shoot went really well. Imogen was professional and had a lovely relaxed attitude, she was brilliant around my horse and lovely with my dog! I felt completely at ease and was able to work through the very large list of things I wanted to get photographed with a relaxed attitude, my horse worked really well and I was really happy with how much we got done!

I am SO happy with all of the photos, some of them blew my mind they were so gorgeous. I’m really happy with the package I ordered and now have enough content for my business social media for at least a year!

I love them and already posting these photos has helped up my social media traffic, I’m so happy to have professional and meaningful photos on there. Also there’s a few personal ones I can’t wait to put on my wall!

I am so happy with my images and I will be booking again next year!"

Phoebe, Tom, Zena, Oscar & Amber - A Family Photo Shoot With Lunar Photography Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/6/phoebe-tom-zena-oscar-amber---a-family-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire

Phoebe was gifted her photo shoot from her partner Tom for Christmas - Zena is kept on a lovely yard near Shardlow, and it was a stunning day for it, too. The yard owner was very kind and let us have free roam of the property, even including their garden! 

 

Oscar & Amber are two rescue greyhounds that have retired from racing, and as Zena has started getting a bit older, Phoebe wanted some lovely family photos of them all together. 

 

"Tom found Imogen online when looking for a photographer for me for Christmas. He chose based on how vibrant and gorgeous the images were. 
Before my photo shoot I felt quite nervous that it would be awkward and I wouldn’t get the photos I wanted of Zena and the dogs. I was also unsure of what outfits to wear as I wanted memories that captured us in our normal style so I did not make use of all the outfit changes- if I’d have known how comfortable the photo shoot felt, I would have made more use of another outfit change!

 

Phoebe, Tom, Zena, Oscar & Amber -23Phoebe, Tom, Zena, Oscar & Amber -23

 

I was also worried that I wouldn’t like any of the photos and that the dogs and horse would misbehave etc (all the usual worries!). However I absolutely love the images that I now have of our little family. The dogs and Zena behaved perfectly (helped by Imogen’s treats!), we didn’t feel awkward at all and we got a variety of images and backgrounds so there was so many options when trying to find our favourite photos (with 5 people/animals in the images, I am amazed how many turned out perfect!).

I actually really enjoyed the photo shoot, despite the fact I thought I’d hate it! It felt very natural and relaxing. Imogen helped with getting all three animals ears forward and looking, which helped a lot!

My favourite part of the photo shoot was taking some close images between me and Zena, which helped show our bond. I’ll treasure those ones forever.

 

Phoebe, Tom, Zena, Oscar & Amber -46Phoebe, Tom, Zena, Oscar & Amber -46


 

I got everything I wanted and more. Tom and I have no photos with the dogs and our family as a whole so it was fantastic to get multiple gorgeous photos of all five of us which we can have at home. I also love the images I got riding Zena at the end, there are some gorgeous black and white ones from angles I would never take myself and they’re just perfect. The only thing I would say is avoid a shoot if you’re grey horse is malting- hair everywhere haha!
 

I absolutely love the final images. They’re perfect and they make me so happy when I look at them. They capture our family and mine and Zena’s relationship perfectly- with Z not being very well, they’re the best memories I could ask for.  The photo shoot was definitely worth every penny... I think the whole package was perfect and wasn’t lacking anything! I only wish Zena wasn’t malting so bad so there wasn’t hairs all over me!

 

I think these kind of shoots are once in a lifetime, however I would never say no to a photo shoot with Imogen in the future - a different location and different outfits would be lovely!"

We went down to the gorgeous Petworth for this photo shoot - I must say I've never been to West Sussex before, and my goodness it was so beautiful, it really didn't disappoint!

 

Abbey is a friend of my best friend, and she wanted a photo shoot with her two dogs and boyfriend. Bella & Bramble are both cocker spaniels, and they were an absolute pleasure to work with! 

 

They really made the most of this as we ended up doing 4 locations with 3 different outfit changes. It really was a lovely day, the weather was perfect and to finish it off watching the sun go down on the beach is my idea of heaven!

 

Abbey, Mikey, Bella & Bramble 126Abbey, Mikey, Bella & Bramble 126

 

"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!"

It was a lovely afternoon, we did some ridden, jumping and portrait photos of the girls, and finished off the day with a family photo at the end.

We would definitely have another photo shoot with Imogen!"

I absolutely loved doing this photo shoot! There is something about a fluffy pony & a donkey that just looks so cute and cuddly for photos.

I must admit, I've never photographed a donkey before, so this was something entirely new to me! Although they are similar to horses, they're also VERY different. 

 

The photo shoot took place at their lovely livery yard, we just used the boys field & stable, which provided plenty of locations for the photo shoot. Bandit is getting a bit older now, and he had also had a little colic episode not long before our photo shoot, which made the photos even more special for Amy. Sherbert is Bandit's little field buddy, they are literally best friends!

 

Amy Bandit & Sherbert7Amy Bandit & Sherbert7

 

"I booked my photo shoot with Imogen because of her social media presence, I love the look of all her pictures and her fun, friendly personality!

I felt super nervous before booking, I was worried the photos would look staged or that my ponies wouldn’t quite behave for the photoshoot. Imogen completely changed this, she reassured me they pictures would look perfect and she was SO right! 
I’m not a very confident person but I didn’t even know the camera was there! We had so much fun and lots of laughs, it felt totally natural and I’m left with beautiful photos I will treasure forever! I’m very grateful!

 

 

Amy Bandit & Sherbert57Amy Bandit & Sherbert57

 

 

The photo shoot went perfectly, even with the windy weather Imogen made the photos so perfect! She even accommodated my request for some black background pictures which I’ve always dreamt of having! 

I enjoyed the whole photo shoot! Imogen had lots of tricks up her sleeve to get Bandit and Sherbert to co-operate and get pictures I could only dream of!
The photos came out even better than expected!! I want to book another for my mare now!

The photo shoot was worth every penny and even more! Imogen was great at offering me a customised package deal for wanting more pictures, too. When I look at my pictures they make me smile, I remember the fun we had creating them and I will treasure them forever.

I would definitely book with Imogen again!"

I git to go to Eland Lodge Equestrian Centre & do this photo shoot of yard manager, Hannah, and her two lovely horses, Pepsy & Duke.

Pepsy is an ex national hunt horse, and has actually been ridden by AP McCoy, which I found really fascinating. He is so beautiful, there is something about a dark bay in the sunshine! Hannah also loans Duke, a gorgeous bay cob, who she does a bit of competing with.

 

I've ridden at Eland so many times, so it was nice to be there for a photo shoot for a change. 

 

Hannah, Pepsy & Duke 90Hannah, Pepsy & Duke 90

 

"I booked my photo shoot with Imogen due my thoroughbred getting a bit older, and the lack of photos I had with my old horse who I lost to colic four years ago.

I was so excited before the photo shoot but my main worry was the weather! If it was blowing a gale it would of been like flying a kite trying to hold onto Pepsy, and I was also worried that I hadn’t got any places to take photos that would look ‘perfect’. Turns out Imogen can make just about any background look fab!!

 

I was also a little worried my photos would look too staged and posed - but not at all!! They all look totally natural and chilled and I feel silly for worrying now!

 

The photoshoot was so much fun, we laughed from start to finish. I was most impressed by how much variety Imogen fitted into the shoot! She had lots of great ideas and now I’ve got a selection of totally different photos! I felt totally at ease.

 

 

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

 

I most enjoyed spending time with the boys and showing them off to their best! It was also nice to have the opportunity to dress up after so long stuck in lock down!

 


The photos turned out so much better than expected!! Duke was a little terror on the day and was dragging me about all over the place, I was so pleased (and a little surprised!!) we managed to get some lovely shots of him looking completely relaxed and happy. So over the moon with my final photos, so so happy I had them done and can keep them to treasure for years to come. It was worth every penny and would recommend a photo shoot with Imogen to anybody with a horse they love!
 

 

If I had Imogen back (which I would!) I’d think about some pictures of me riding or including my boyfriend so I’d got some of the whole ‘family’ to hang on the wall.

The way Imogen had packed and wrapped my frame and prints when they arrived in the post made it feel even more special and high quality. 

When I look at my photos I feel a little emotional! I love both the boys so much and they really capture my bond with Pepsy I thought."

Maisy & Havana - An Equine Photo Shoot with Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/5/maisy-havana---an-equine-photo-shoot-with-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

Maisy & Havana

 

Maisy & Havanna56Maisy & Havanna56

 

Maisy was gifted her photo shoot from her dad for a Christmas present last year. I have been following them on instagram for a while, she has the most gorgeous big grey mare called Havana. She's an Irish Sport Horse, and they've been doing lots of eventing together.

 

Maisy competes Havana at BE novice, they make it look really easy, which is hardly surprising after seeing their incredible partnership. 

We did our photo shoot in Shipley Park, it was a fairly cloudy evening with the sun bursting through the cloud just towards the end of the photo shoot. 

We got stopped in the park so many times from people complementing on how gorgeous Havana is, and she was such a pleasure to photograph... 99% of the photos I took of her she had her ears forward!

 

Maisy & Havanna28Maisy & Havanna28

 

"Before my photo shoot I was a bit nervous as I wasn’t sure if the photos would be great because the weather wasn’t perfect, but I love every single photo Imogen took, the lighting is perfect despite the weather not being bright and she managed to capture Havana’s personality perfectly and our bond.


Imogen and I had such a good conversation and she had so many creative ideas. I didn’t feel any pressure or nerves to look perfect the first time round as Imogen took so many photos from so many angles. I admire Imogen enthusiasm for getting the perfect shot even if it means jumping in bushes!

The best part was seeing the photos afterwards! I was so excited and they were much better than I thought they would be! 
 

My mum and I are still arguing over who gets the biggest print! My entire family love them and they’re just so perfect, I’m really pleased with my photos.
I would definitely have another photo shoot with Imogen and recommend her to others."

Iona was the second person to book my limited edition First Love Photo Package. I love these special packages, they're so unique and I spend so much time putting them together, it's so satisfying when I see the final frames & prints all put together.

 

Iona wanted some photos in her wedding dress, as her horse wasn't able to attend her wedding, and we also did some photos with her husband Joe, and little jack russell terrier, Boris. 

 

The weather was something else... It was blazing sunshine, then a blizzard, but we went ahead none the less, and it made for some absolutely magical photos!

 

Iona used to do eventing with Rem, and I must commend her on how clean he was - he looked like a real life unicorn. The perfect horse for a photo shoot in your wedding dress!

"I booked my photo shoot with Imogen after lots of friends on the yard had had shoots, and I loved how natural they looked, not cheesy or posed/ fake looking. 


Before the photo shoot, I was worried about weather, and even right up to the last minute I was on this phone to Imogen. She was so lovely about it all, and happy to rearrange if I wanted. In the end, the snow was perfect. I was also a bit self-conscious about how I’d look and how my naughty horse would behave, but Imogen even got stuck in with my handling the horse! It didn’t feel rushed, and nothing felt posed.

 

I really enjoyed Imogen's reassurance throughout the photo shoot, and the photos turned out even better than I expected by far. I still can’t believe that my horse and I are in the shots!

I am absolutely blown away when I look back on my photos, and I would definitely book a photo shoot with Imogen again!"

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

 

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

 

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

 

Violette & Tommy-87Violette & Tommy-87

 

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

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

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

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

Abbie & Lewis

 

Abbie&Lewis65Abbie&Lewis65

 

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

 

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

 

Abbie&Lewis34Abbie&Lewis34

 

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


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

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

Abbie&Lewis6Abbie&Lewis6


 

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


 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

 

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

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 


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

 


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

Charlotte & Archie

 

Charlotte & Archie -44Charlotte & Archie -44

 

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

 

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

 

Charlotte & Archie-94Charlotte & Archie-94

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

 

Did you know that...

50% of dogs are stolen from gardens.

19% are taken from breaking into homes.

16% are taken from owners whilst out walking.

7% are taken when left outside of shops.

 

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

 

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

 

1. PREVENTION

 

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

 

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

 

2. PREPARE

 

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

 

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

 

3. WHILST WALKING

 

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

 

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

 

4. WHAT TO DO IF APPROACHED

 

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

 

5. WHAT TO DO IF YOUR DOG IS TAKEN

 

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

 

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

 

6. PET CARE

 

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

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

 

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

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

What happens on your photo shoot day?

 

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

 

EQUINE PHOTO SHOOT

 

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

 

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

DOG PHOTO SHOOT

 

IMG_1803IMG_1803

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

 

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

OUTFIT PLANNING...

 

 

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

 

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


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

FEELING AWKWARD...

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

EXPECTATIONS VS REALITY...

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

 

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

 

 

EQUINE PHOTO SHOOT PREP

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

DOG PHOTO SHOOT PREP

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

A quick note on technique before we start...

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

 

1. Stones in a tupawear.

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

 

2. Crisp packet.

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

 

3. Car keys.

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

 

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

 

4. Moving a bucket.

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

 

5. Putting a coat on a broom handle.

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

5 Quick Tips For Amazing Dog Photos - Lunar Photography, Equine & Dog Photographer in Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2021/1/5-tips-for-amazing-dog-photos-lunar-photography-dog-photographer-in-derbyshire 5 Quick Tips To Help You Take Amazing Dog Photos

 

 

 

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

 

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



2. Use a plain background

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


 

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

 

CHASE (42)CHASE (42)


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

 

 

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

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

Lexie had sold her pony, Humphrey, and he was leaving for his new home the next day. I knew exactly how she was feeling, as I let me heart horse go back in May 2019. I think that's why it means so much to me.

 

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

And my photography has improved so much, I've decided to do it again. 

Here's you'll find a selection of images that didn't quite make the final cut, some funny ones, some cute ones, but the idea is to walk you through my year in a more light-hearted way.

Enjoy!

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

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

 

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

 

Derby College (42)Derby College (42)

 

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

 

Derby College (29)Derby College (29)
 

 

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

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

 

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

The New Style Guide 2021

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

 

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

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

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

How To Make The Most Of Your Photo Shoot

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

Make the most of your outfit changes!

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

 

REDONE (204)REDONE (204)

 

Preparation is key!

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

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

 

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

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

 

Invite your friends/family!

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

 

ASHTON (120)ASHTON (120)

 

Enjoy it!

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

 

Share your photos everywhere!

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

 

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

Lexie & Humphrey

 

Lexie & Humphrey (70)Lexie & Humphrey (70)

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

Em & Mouse (33)Em & Mouse (33)
 

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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


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


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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

IMG_3044IMG_3044

 

These are my favourite type of photos!

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

I met Ashton at Springwood riding club, and she got gifted a photo shoot with me for her birthday.

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

 

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

"I got gifted a photo shoot for my birthday from my family, I chose Imogen @ Lunar Photography as I had seen people share her previous work & I instantly thought Wow!!
She had also been the photographer at our riding club, so had seen first hand how well she captured those special moments. When Imogen sent me the images from the shoot I was totally blown away! They were all beautiful! I am totally in love with my photos. I cant recommend Imogen enough!"

Beth & Crystal

 

REDONE (171)REDONE (171)

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

CHLOE (18)CHLOE (18)

 

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

 

CHLOE (93)CHLOE (93)

 

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

Beth & Etse

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

REDONE (140)REDONE (140)

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

5 TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING BLACK DOGS

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

1. CONTRASTING BACKGROUND

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

 

2. EYES

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

 

3. LIGHT

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

4. GOLDEN/BLUE HOUR

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

 

5. INCLUDE A PERSON

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

 

BONUS TIP.

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

Holly & Hilby

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

CHARLIE (215)CHARLIE (215)

 

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

 

CHARLIE (266)CHARLIE (266)

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

FLORAL DOXIES (126)FLORAL DOXIES (126)

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

KATIE (19)KATIE (19)

 

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

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

 

KATIE (147)KATIE (147)

 

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

RUTH & JED (37)RUTH & JED (37)

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

RUTH & JED (63)RUTH & JED (63)

 

It's always lovely to catch up with old friends in person and see what people are getting up to. 

 

"Had a lovely photo shoot with Imogen. She was very professional and made me feel at ease! Imogen took on board what I wanted whilst bringing lots of new ideas and imagination to create a great collection of memories!"

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

CHASE (42)CHASE (42)

 

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

 

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

 

CHASE (62)CHASE (62)

 

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

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

BILLY (73)BILLY (73)

 

I've honestly never seen a bond so strong.

 

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

 

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

 

BILLY (158)BILLY (158)

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

BILLY (100)BILLY (100)

 

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

Georgia & Stevie

 

STEVIE (93)STEVIE (93)

 

Oh my word! What a location this was.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

STEVIE (11)STEVIE (11)

 

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

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

Ellouise & Prince

 

PRINCE (6)PRINCE (6)

 

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

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

 

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

 

PRINCE (83)PRINCE (83)

 

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

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

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

Thank you for everything Imogen and capturing treasurable memories!"

 

 

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

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

Carlen's Companions

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

What happens on the day of your equine photo shoot?

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

1. Earlier Sunsets

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

 

2. Not as many flies!

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

 

3. Autumn Leaves

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

 

4. You won't be sweating!

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

 

5. Crisp mornings

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

 

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

 

6. Woolly jumpers!

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

 

7. Woolly ponies!

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

 

8. Clipped ponies!

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

 

9. You aren't quite as busy!

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

 

10. Softer light makes your skin look smoother

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

 

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

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

High Res Vs Low Res

 

Molly (1)Molly (1)

 

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

 

High Res

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

Low Res

 

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

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

 

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

What happens if it's raining on my photo shoot day? Lunar Photography, Derbyshire https://www.lunarphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/8/what-happens-if-its-raining-on-my-photo-shoot-day-lunar-photography-derbyshire  

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

Jo & Jimmy

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

 

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

 

JIMMY (84)JIMMY (84)

 

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

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

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

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

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

Alfie

 

ALFIE (30)ALFIE (30)

 

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

 

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

 

ALFIE (43)ALFIE (43)

 

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

 

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

 

ALFIE (71)ALFIE (71)
 

 

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

 

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

Zoe, Alex & Dinky

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

 

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

 

EL (8)EL (8)

 

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

 

EL (175)EL (175)

 

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

 

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

Bentley

 

BENTLEY (41)BENTLEY (41)

 

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

 

We met up at the edge of Shipley Park on a Sunday morning for this one, I'm so lucky to have such a beautiful photo shoot location right on my doorstep. I know it so well, I know
