Equine Portrait Sessions


Welcome to What a Picture Photography Equine Portraiture.Sian, Isobel and Imogen wooton wawen equine portrait session

The Equine portrait is something that many owners have never thought about. For most people, your horse is part of the family. Families usually have artwork of their members on display. This display of your family is why I recommend printed images rather than digital files, which get put in a drawer and forgotten, I’m afraid to say.

An equine portrait session gives you the opportunity to be photographed with your horse in a way that you don’t normally do on a daily basis. The session takes place in an area familiar to the horse so that there are no surprises.

Whilst you’re here have a look at some of our equine images (opens in a new browser window) Equine Portfolio


How does it work?

The normal length of a portrait session is 1-2 hours. You choose a location familiar to your horse so that the horse is comfortable in its surroundings. Either at the time of booking or shortly before your session we will have a discussion on the location and what you should wear to get the best results. What are the great points about where your horse lives that we can use? 

It helps me to know something about you and your horse and what you do together. The more information I have on my subjects the more I can give you some amazing images. Do the two of you just go out hacking or do you get involved in competitions.

Usually, 3 changes of clothes are a good look. Bring 4 or 5 varied outfits and we can discuss the best ones to choose for the session. How do you view yourself are you a fun clothing, smart casual or dress up person. Try them all at your session. I try and go for a casual, smart and glad rags look and get you to be different for your session to how your friends at the yard see you. Knock ’em dead

It usually helps to have someone along to help with handling the horse and to rattle something to get the horse to bring his / her ears up.

Following the session, I will arrange a viewing session with you so that you can pick your favourites and discuss your needs for your order.  I only use quality companies to provide your products. I want you to be able to trust me and my suppliers to give you something that you will be proud to look through or hang on your wall. 

For sessions involving under 17’s, we do require the presence of a supervising adult for safeguarding purposes as our policy is to never be alone with a young person.


As we all know the British weather can be fickle. If the weather isn’t suitable to give you the best experience I will reschedule with you for a better opportunity. I can work in wet weather but it’s no fun for you or your horse when you would rather be in the warm. The week before the session I will arrange a backup date in case we need to use it then we know in advance that we will both be free.
