A photo shoot in Cheshire with Katie and her Dutch Warmblood Mare

Katie & Roos’s Portrait Shoot

Sep 6, 2016 | Horse and Rider Photo Shoots

I’m having to travel all the way back to May for this blog post, a whole 4 months ago! What a summer it’s been, not the most ideal weather wise at times I’ll admit but a fantastic one nonetheless with so many wonderful clients, gorgeous horses and fun and beautiful shoots! Katie’s photo shoot with her warmblood Dressage mare was no exception! It was courtesy of the fab Cooke Coach Builders who ran a competition last Christmas of which Katie was the lucky winner.

I met up with Katie and her mum Jo on the yard where they keep Roos on a gorgeous May evening and we had a cracker of a shoot. Roos was an excellent model, first of all sporting some goodies kindly sent over from Cooke and later taking a short stroll down to Marbury Country Park for a bit of a change in location with all the bling a dressage queen should rightly wear!

It was a pretty spectacular evening for it and I absolutely love the shots of Katie and Roos with just the sky as a backdrop. I always feel in these shots where there is no other distraction you just get to focus in on that special bond between horse and rider. Of course saying that Marbury park didn’t disappoint with some great opportunities for more scenic shots and it was only right that we got Katie’s mum Jo involved in a few of the photos as well as they are both equally involved with Roos.

I have to say a big thank you to Matt from Cooke Coach Builders who organised the shoot for Katie with myself. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Matt now on several occasions over the summer at Southview Arena where they have been showcasing their impressive horse boxes and if I’m ever looking for a horse lorry in the future I know where I will be heading for sure! To check out the Cooke collection you can head over to their website or check out their facebook page as you just never know what competitions they may hold in the future!

Until next time,
