Thank you Lucy, I had a fantastic photoshoot. Absolutely love all the photos you took, you really managed to capture Buddy and his wonderful ways. Would definitely recommend you to anyone thinking about having a photoshoot.
Lauren & Buddy
Back in October, I was spoilt with an opportunity to photograph Lauren & Georgie and their horses Buddy & Indie.
I arrived at Georgie’s gorgeous yard, in Essex, to be greeted by every horsey girl’s dream; with the added bonus of a herd of Dairy cows and calves which Georgie’s family show. I was in love right from the start!
The weather was on our side with glorious autumn sunshine. It was very windy, but the horses were good as gold and who doesn’t want a ‘wind machine’ on their photoshoot?!
Georgie, a keen Eventer, bought Indie in June last year. Indie, a 12 year old Irish Sports horse, has the most adorable face and Georgie fell in love with her ears as they are so large that she cannot control them when she canters so they just keep flopping! Indie also has a cheeky side and loved to give slobbery kisses, meaning an outfit change was needed! The love and trust between the pair was so sweet to see, especially as they were a fairly new partnership at the time.
Lauren bought Buddy in May from Georgie’s family and keeps him at the yard. I’ve known Lauren for years and know that a horse like Buddy has always been her dream! Buddy is a handsome 18 year old, confidence giver and treat lover! The temptation to snack was too great in the lush pastures and he happily helped himself to all he could when he thought we weren’t looking! Lauren and Buddy are hoping to start Eventing this season, and I cannot wait to see what they get up to!
We started the photoshoot in the stables, where we were able to capture some stunning black background portraits. The stables had windows in the back looking out to the paddocks behind which offered the perfect opportunity to get creative and photograph from within the stable and use the window as a frame.
We then headed out to the fields where we were spoilt for locations… with gorgeous hedgerows, ploughed fields, paddocks and long grass – it was a photographer’s treasure trove! We had a great laugh and by the end I wanted to take both horses home!
Thank you Georgie & Lauren for having me, I cannot wait to see what you all get up to in the future.
