Friday, 7th April 2017 - Corinne's and her menagerie!

 

Corinne's lovely daughter brought her Mum a photo shoot as a gift. It was great fun meeting all her animals - 2 horses, 2 shetlands and 2 dogs! I also found a new challenge - photographing a grey hound in full flight!

March 2017 - Thailand

 

Everybody needs a holiday! I enjoyed some lovely R and R in the sunshine and managed to get lots of photography in as well.

Thursday, March 2nd 2017 - Laura, James and Billy

 

Laura and James' Mum booked a photo shoot with me to get some family photos for their Grandparents wedding anniversary. The weather wasn't on our side but we dodged the showers and managed to get some lovely photos.

Saturday, February 18th 2017 - Amber, Sweep (and Alfie!)

 

Amber had a photo shoot with me for her birthday a couple of years ago so it was lovely to photograph her with her new favourite boy, Sweep. Alfie the dog even came and joined in some of the photos!

 

 

Saturday, January 14th 2017 - Chloe and Bentley

 

Chloe chose to have a photo shoot with her lovely boy Bentley as part of her birthday present. It was absolutely freezing but Chloe braved the cold and modelled like a pro!

Thursday 29th December - Roxie

 

My last photo shoot of 2016 and what a lovely way to finish my photography year. I think Roxie is one of the cutest puppies I have ever met but also one of the fastest. She may only be tiny but at time I had trouble keeping up with her!

Friday 18th November - Oliver

 

This was a special photo shoot for me as I was photographing my friend's little boy Oliver. I took some baby photos of him around a year ago so it was time to get some more recent images! Oliver's Mum, Emma, is also a horse lover so we decided to take some photos of him meeting Shetland pony Fuzz.

Thursday 20th October - Katie and Billy

 

When Katie sent me a photo of Billy that morning looking more like he was bay than grey I had a slight panic. However, after Katie spent several hours bathing him, he looked very handsome for their photoshoot. Katie had chosen 2 outfits for the shoot - the first was red riding hood themed and for the second part she wore her competition gear.

Wednesday 12th October - Savannah and Alfie

 

Savannah has had Alfie for almost a year, he is a 17.2Hh 5 year old warmblood. Alfie decided he didnt want to leave his friends to have his photos taken in the field (horses will be horses!) but fortunately Savannah is on a very beautiful yard in Cheshire so there were still plenty of photo ops for us!

Friday 30th September 2016 - Chelsea and Penny

 

Chelsea had her photo shoot with her favourite pony, Penny, as a birthday treat. Although Penny can be a bit of a 'moody mare' at times she gave us lots of happy faces today!

Friday 2nd September 2016 - Carrington Riding Centre Summer Show

 

What a beautiful day it was for a spot of event photography! As usual there was a high turn out of competitors and all the riders looked very smart.

Wednesday 31st August 2016 - Bethany, Lauren and Gem

 

Sisters Bethany and Lauren had been treated to a photo shoot voucher last Christmas and had been waiting until we got some summer sun to use it. Their Welsh pony, Gem, was impeccably behaved throughout the whole shoot and was a little sweetie. The weather was very mixed with a huge downpour in the middle of the shoot (although we managed to get some fab galloping in the rain shots!) and then opening out into lovely sunshine.

 

 

 

Friday 26th August 2016 - Intercentre Competition

 

The end of a very busy week for me. This time I didn't manage to get so many photos as I was organising the event but I did manage to snap this one of all the competitors from different Riding Schools.

Tuesday 23rd August 2016 - Pony Club Championships

 

An early start, getting the horses ready and boxed to Cholmondley Castle for The Pony Club Championships. In between making sure our riders were ok, I managed to get a few action shots.

Thursday 18th August 2016 - Imogen and Gem

 

Imogen is Sophie's little Sister and of course she wanted to be part of the action! So she had her own mini photo shoot with Gem.

Thursday 18th August 2016 - Sophie and Sylvester

 

I photographed Sophie last year so it was lovely take some more images this year. Of course, she chose her favourite boy, Sylvester, to pose with and this year some other members of the family also got involved!

 

Friday 5th August 2016 - Summer Camp

 

Today was the last day of Summer Camp at CRC. The kids that stayed had a blast, participating in all sorts of activities such as polocross, making photo frames, unicorn day, treasure hunts, horse riding competitions and of course a photo shoot!

Saturday 23rd July 2016 - Rachael and Ben

 

Rachael was the 3rd person to be part of the mini shoots at Black Brow Farm. She has owned Ben since he was a youngster but unfortunately due to an injury he can no longer be ridden. However, he is full of life and an absolute character to be around.

 

 

Saturday 23rd July 2016 - Zoe and Mary

 

Zoe brought Mary from Mobberley Riding School when it closed down. She was one of the older ponies and had been at the Riding School for a very long. It took Mary a little time to adjust to her new life, but with lots of TLC from Zoe, she is now a very happy pony.

 

Saturday 23rd July 2016 - Erica and Robbie

 

Erica and Robbie were part of a session of 'mini shoot's' that I photographed at Black Brow Farm in Duham Massey. Robbie is a very handsome fell pony with the most amazing mane! 

Wednesday, 1st June 2016 - Chloe and Misty

 

Chloe chose to have a photo shoot with her best girl, Misty, and they had matching plaits for the occasion! Misty and Chloe both had a great time and Misty enjoyed all the tasty grass that was on offer during the photo shoot!

Friday, 13th May 2016 - Ella and Whisper

 

Ella's Grandma had kindly brought her a photo shoot voucher for Christmas. We were very lucky with the weather and mananged to get an evening of sunshine. Whisper had his tail washed for the occasion and it looked very sparkly and white.

Saturday, 30th April 2016 - Aimee and Bentley

 

Aimee's photo shoot was a special treat for her birthday and she looked lovely. Bentley was a very good boy and behaved impeccably during the photo shoot despite having to run for cover a few times to avoid the thunder storms and torrential rain!

Saturday, 2nd April 2016 - Japan

 

I had a lovely holiday to Japan and although I didnt see any horses I couldn't resist getting some target practice of the local wildlife! 

Friday, 4th March 2016 - Snow Baby

 

Braving the cold to get some shots of my own gorgeous boy turned out to be worth the effort - I was pleased with the images:)

Saturday, 30th January 2016 - Charity Ball

 

This Saturday I had lots of fun volunteering as the 'Paparazzi' at a Vintage Hollywood Ball in aid of Mencap and the Christie Hospital. It was a wonderful event and the ladies organising it had done a brilliant job. Here is a link to the images; http://emmabartonphotography.pixieset.com/charityball-300116/

Sophie's beloved loan horse Zeus is moving on to a new home in Jersey so I was asked to take some photo's so they can look back and remember happy times with this gorgeous boy. 

Saturday, 16th January 2016 - Georgia and Dillon

 

It was a lovely frosty winters morning for Georgia and Dillon's photo shoot. Dillon enjoyed posing especially when he discovered tasty treats were invloved and Georgia did a great job with him even in the chilly weather!

Saturday, 12th December 2015 - Amber and Gem

 

The December rain was out in full force for Amber's photo shoot. We got absolutely drenched but we also had lots of fun and I managed to get some unique shots in the rain as Gem was a little star and let Amber hold a big umbrella for some of the photos.

Friday, 9th October 2015 - Louis

 

My parents came up to visit me for the weekend so I took their dog Louis for some fun in the park and a bit of 'target practice'. Louis is a bit of a loon and he took great delight running through the autumn leaves and chasing squirrels.
