It's ALL about you...

Riders are busy people. You spend every spare moment enjoying your horse. You’d love some special photographs of them, but you can’t imagine when you’d find the time to get them done. They’re not getting any younger, but you convince yourself that phone pictures will be enough to remember them by when the time comes…

If you found yourself nodding along to any of the above, you’re in the right place!

I believe you deserve beautiful photographs, but you shouldn’t have to give up your precious time together to get them.

I’m Catherine and, as a rider myself, totally ‘get’ the hectic equestrian lifestyle.

Your horse is the centre of your world and you can’t imagine life without him. I’m guessing that you’ve got a phone full of pictures but no ‘special’ photographs of him, or the two of you together. You know that he won’t be around forever so you want images that capture the essence of your life together, that unique bond and relationship that you share.

If you’re not usually comfortable in front of the camera, don’t worry. I understand that the best photographs happen when you don’t know they’re being taken. My style is so relaxed and unobtrusive that you will probably forget I’m even there! My clients are always pleasantly surprised at how good they actually look in photographs when they see the final images.

Think of a lifestyle session as giving yourself a gift. A unique collection of beautifully shot images that are a true representation of your life together, not perfectly posed. Turn your digital files into stunning prints, albums or canvases that you can treasure for a lifetime.

I am a lifestyle photographer based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and this is what I do for you.

* As your personal, lifestyle photographer I work quietly behind the scenes, capturing real life moments from the day of your show or competition.

* Documentary style photography means no posing and no feeling awkward in front of the camera

* You'll be so busy getting on with your day you'll probably forget I'm there, resulting in beautifully natural, candid images

* Honest, authentic photographs of all aspects of your day that will evoke vivid memories for years to come

*Probably the most stress-free photographic experience ever

Booking an equestrian lifestyle photo shoot is a serious investment, both in time and money. You want to make absolutely sure that it’s the right choice for you and your horse. That’s why I’ve taken the time to list all the usual questions that I get asked here…
