This photography sessions begun with a brief discussion about the relationship Sabra (our model) had with her horse and taking a look around for photographic areas at her chosen location. The more relaxed our model was are the more relaxed the horse was and the results are more natural looking photographs.
The type of relationship the model had with her horse also dictated what photos were captured. I encouraged Sabra to interact with her horse as if I were not there to capture a variety of other shots, such as a caress down her horse’s nose or a pat on the neck. The type of shots that are were captured were simply amazing! We know it is a success when the session is flowing naturally, the individual is comfortable, the horse at ease, and you could see that in their relationship.
