Welcome horse lover...
I'm so glad you're here - because that means you know that special horse. The one who just 'gets you', your best friend. The one who listens patiently while you tell her literally everything. The one you wouldn't, couldn't be without.
You don't want to forget a single thing about him - his soft nose, the whicker that greets you in the morning, her unique personality... you need photos. You could take them yourself, but you've tried and you know: photographing horses is not easy!
But don't worry - here's where I can help. Creating beautiful, natural images of your horse and you together, capturing your unique bond and the love between you...
so you will always remember!
“Sally was brilliant from beginning to end. The pictures are wonderful and definitely something I will treasure for a long time. Nothing was too much trouble, the whole process was so simple and relaxed. I'll be sure to use her again in the future, and wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend her. Her work is beautiful, and it was great to deal with someone who clearly loves and takes so much pride in her work!”
The bond you share with your horse is unlike any other, and I understand that you want to remember it forever. We never know how much time we have left to enjoy our beloved companions. Investing in beautiful, high quality photographs is the perfect way to preserve these feelings and memories you share with them for a lifetime and beyond.
All Equine Portrait Sessions with Holly Rose Photography include:
Pre-session advice on what to wear and how to prepare your horse
A one hour photoshoot (actual time dependent on your horse and how calm they are) - this can include one human and one horse* and will capture images of the two of you together and of your horse alone, including 'black background' and 'at liberty' shots if required (subject to suitable facilities at your yard / chosen outdoor location).
An online proofing gallery from which you can choose which of your images you wish to purchase - usually viewable within 7 days of your session
The session fee is £49 and includes my time spent with you planning and delivering the shoot and producing your proofing gallery. There are no prints or products included in the session fee. Your client agreement must be digitally signed and submitted along with your paid session fee in order for your session to be confirmed. The session fee is non-refundable and due at the time of booking.
If any friends from your yard or stables are also interested in sessions I offer special 'Yard Sessions' to help you share the cost. I also offer special discounted 'Forget-Me-Not sessions' for horses over the age of 25 years or with a terminal illness. Gift Vouchers are also available for that special horse-lover in your life.
* Extra humans / horses can be added to your session for an additional £15 per human or horse - this allows for an extended session time so a greater variety of images can be created.
Loved mine and Ella’s photo shoot the first time in 2016 so had to have another last year.
I would definitely recommend Holly Rose Photography as Sally is professional and has so much patience to get that perfect photo even when my mare wasn’t playing ball. Thank you so much for helping to create some lovely memories and capturing the horse and owner bond we share
After your session...
After your session I will upload proofs of your images to your online gallery. These proofs are very lightly edited and watermarked. From this proofing gallery you will select the images you wish to purchase. Digital images, prints and products are available to purchase in collections or individually. Once you have placed your order I will artistically edit and retouch your chosen images before uploading them to your final gallery. Your final gallery of purchased images is un-watermarked, fully downloadable and easily shareable on social media. You can expect to receive your prints and products within 3 weeks of placing your order - although this time can vary depending on what you have ordered.
The following collections are available for you to purchase after your session:
Red Ribbon Collection
20 digital images on USB
8x8" Album (5 spreads/10 pages)
Blue Ribbon Collection
10 digital images on USB
Folio box (10 prints)
Yellow Ribbon Collection
5 digital images on USB
Folio box (5 prints)
Purchase individual digital files, prints and products from the pricelist, viewable here.
"Sally was very professional and put me at ease, my pictures are fabulous, better than I ever dreamed, they brought a tear to my eye, thank you Sally the hardest part is picking which ones I want framed and how!"
Why not share the cost of your session with friends? When multiple people from the same yard / stable book a session to take place on the same day, you will all receive a 20% discount off your session fees and print / product orders. The organising person will also receive a special gift. Requires a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 sessions booked at the same location on the same date. Sessions will last between 45 and 60 minutes per person and must run consecutively (no gaps between sessions) unless agreed with me beforehand. Please contact me if you would like to organise this type of session.
If your horse is over 25 years of age, or sadly has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, I understand that the remaining time you have together is incredibly precious. I would be honoured to spend a session with you both, helping you to create truly priceless images that will help you to remember your irreplaceable friend and the everlasting bond between you in the years to come. Please contact me for more information about these extra special sessions.
Holly Rose photography came to take pictures of me and my horse. She was very patient with my horse and waited for the right shots, keeping the horse calm. She had some great photo ideas and was happy to try my ideas too. Great pictures highly recommended.

Gift vouchers are provided in electronic format via email. Alternatively paper vouchers in gift packaging can be provided for an additional £5.

Hi, I'm Sally - the owner and photographer at Holly Rose Photography. I've loved horses from a young age when I began riding lessons with my older sister at Brockholes Farm (now the Yorkshire Wildlife Park!). I've spent lots of time around horses and yards over the years so I understand how to interact with horses and how to keep them calm during a photo session - as well as how to persuade them into co-operating!
I now combine my love for horses with my other passion - photography. Travelling across the counties of Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, I enjoy spending time with horse-lovers of all ages - capturing special memories of their beloved equine companions for them to treasure forever. It's a pretty amazing job I have to admit! I've also shot equine events and competitions for local stables and charities.
Thanks for visiting my site and showing an interest in my work. I hope to meet you and your horse some time soon!
