Back in April 2014 I was commissioned to attend Studland Beach, we watched the weather reports closely and decided that 3pm was the ‘Go’ time. The client, Lara, had the time spot on, after rain all morning, 3pm came and the sun shone!
In the end we had Lara for her portrait session with her horse Rudolph and we were then joined by La’s friends, Joe, Callie, Jo and Tatty with their horses.
We had an absolute blast on the beach, playing in the sea and cantering on the sand.
From the outset, Lara wanted very natural and ‘fly on the wall’ images, rather than set up.
We had a wonderful afternoon watching the horses nervously dipping their hooves into the sea water and jumping over the spume (white foam) until they grew in their swimming confidence and ran in and out of the water, dancing and playing through the cold blue. It felt like a pure family fun day!
I will be holding beach days this year. If you are interested in joining me and booking a slot on one of these days please leave your details below and I will be in contact with dates. Please note that these days fill up really quickly, so I will be offering a few dates but be quick!
Here are just a handful from that April, sun shining, day…
