I want you to cherish every detail of your horse

—the tiny snip on their muzzle, the curve of their ears, the depth of their eyes. Because every moment is precious, and every photo is a testament to the love and care you have for your horse.

Portrait Sessions

My goal isn't just to take pictures; it's to create timeless memories that will evoke the same emotions even fifty years down the road. I believe that every horse owner deserves to have beautiful photographs that capture the true essence of their best friend, regardless of their background or the setting.

Black Background Sessions

Black background photoshoot sessions are the perfect way to immortalize your horse into a magnificent piece of art. They may be booked as a stand-alone session or added on to a portrait session.

for equestrian brands

Branding shoots are perfect for barns and businesses looking to enhance their social media and marketing presence through photography and video services. Sessions are tailored to showcase the unique personality and character of your barn or business. 

Whether you're looking to attract new clients, promote your services, or simply elevate your brand image, I’ll work with you to create striking images. From beautifully composed shots of your facilities to candid moments that capture the essence of your business, my goal is to create images that leave a lasting impression.

Wondering If I'm The Right Fit?

behind the lens

As a proud horse girl myself, I understand that the bond between a person and their horse is more than just a hobby—it's a way of life. It's this deep understanding that sets me apart from other photographers. I don't just capture images; I create timeless memories that will evoke the same emotions even fifty years from now.

I was deeply moved when a client once expressed feeling intimidated by the glamorous images they saw on social media. Here's the truth: every horse and every owner has a story worth telling. Whether your barn is humble or grand, whether your tack is fancy or practical, your journey with your horse is beautiful, and it deserves to be celebrated.

Every horse owner deserves to have beautiful photographs that capture the true essence of their best friend.

She has a way of making you feel so at ease and comfortable throughout the whole process and she really captured that magical relationship between Oliver and I. I will treasure these images forever and highly recommend Sophia to anyone looking to create a lasting memory with their best friend.”
