BEST OF 2019: Sam Bloor // A Minus the Mud Horse & Rider Photo Shoot

Jan 10, 2020 | Horse and Rider Photo Shoots

As it’s that time of the year I have decided to blog my 10 favourite Photo Shoots from last year! This has proved to be an extremely challenging task to choose my favourites from a year of fabulous shoots but I’m going to give it a go!

They are in no particular order and will be appearing on my blog over the next 10 weeks so keep your eyes peeled! You can always hit the subscribe button too to make sure you don’t miss any!

First up is a super Minus the Mud Horse & Rider photo shoot I did with the wonderful Samantha Bloor back in September. We were lucky with better than forecast weather and I had a fabulous team to work with. This included Tanya Hindley-Tait from Vogue Hair & Beauty doing Sam’s hair and make up and the talented team at Pollen & Twine made the stunning flower crown and garland to tie in with Sam’s outfit choices and bring in some of those fabulous Autunmul colours.

The shoot certainly wouldn’t have been complete without the very cheeky Al-Sheepo (the resident yard sheep!) who insisted on trying to nibble the garlands everytime we turned our backs… The little sprigs of rosemary in the garlands were obviously just too much for him to resist!

Sam’s 3 stunning Dressage horses, Larkin, Hugo and Sox were all an absolute pleasure to work with and I just love the results from this Minus the Mud Horse & Rider Photo Shoot!

I hope you enjoy the selection of images below, I’ve added in a few of the behind the scenes images too in case you’ve not seen hair and make up being applied in the middle of a yard before…!

Until next time,

This started out as a social media post but I quickly realised I had far too many favourite photos to include in one post so here we are! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Karen, Karris, Courtney & Ken over the Summer on their very own family and animals...

What makes Autumn such a fantastic time of the year for Photo Shoots you might be asking? You know, they say a picture can say so much more than words, so I'll keep them brief but do take a peek at some of my favorite Autumnal Photo Shoot examples below. 😊 Gorgeous...
