This was my last photo shoot before going on maternity leave. We had already rearranged Jess' photoshoot a couple of times due to unlucky weather conditions but on the day we had some amazing fog to photograph in.

Wednesday, 27th September 2017 - Orlaith, Leanne and Holly


Orlaith was such a little cutie and her pony Holly was just a super star. Orlaith even had some photos taken with her Mum, Leanne.

Friday, 18th August 2017 - Maddie, Lily and Henry


Sisters Maddie and Lily brought Henry after falling in love with him in their riding lessons. I think Henry is a very lucky pony to be owned by such lovely girls.

I photographed Lisa, her sister, Beth and their 4 horses on their own yard. It was such a peaceful setting and the horses were all brilliantly behaved.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.
