To Braid or Not to Braid for your Black Background Session

To Braid or Not to Braid for your Black Background Session

I get asked A TON in the preparation process if braids look better or not. The truth is my answer will always be it is completely a personal preference. I'm going to make sure your horse is captured in a way that makes them look STUNNING and I can do this with or without braids!

Tips for Getting your Horse ready for their Photo Shoot

When it comes to preparing for your horse's portraits the amount of preparation is completely up to you, but there are several suggestions because a camera sees everything. I say clean your horse up as if you were walking into the most important class of your life!

The rain finally decided to let up and not force me to reschedule YET ANOTHER SESSION. Seriously California, I pay enough taxes I shouldn’t have to reschedule 9 shoots in the winter!!!! So on this fine February in Fallbrook, I got to spend a few hours with Sierra and her crew at her barn Integrity Sport Horses.

Sierra also models for Romfh Equestrian Apparel throughout the year because y’know she’s just STUNNING!
