Ceri: Why everyone deserves a photoshoot :)

I keep seeing many riders arranging for having photo shoots with own horses or their friends’ horses. Even riding school riders started to immortalise their experiences with their favourite school horses. Having Ceri of Pure Essence Photography as a guest blogger on here I thought it might be interesting to look into the why’s of having your photoshoot done. 

I personally love good photography. Sometimes I even like bad photography too! As long as the photos catch a moment in its essence forever framing it in a priceless second, even underdeveloped or over exposed snaps have their merit. 

If you simplify things a little you might say that life is just a milliard photo snaps one by one running on a time treadmill, we all wish we could stop it sometimes…could a photoshoot be a vehicle for a mini handbrake that lets us re-live the emotions we would love to keep for longer?

Over to Ceri…


A photo shoot can be an amazing experience, a chance to spend a couple of hours having fun and posing with your four legged friends and at the end of it some wonderful photos that you can keep to cherish forever.


Want to capture some memories of your children with their first pony? Those early years fly by so quickly and are filled with so many firsts…. first canter, first jump, first rosette. Don’t let those memories fade as the years pass by.

The bond between horse and owner is incredibly special, celebrate that relationship and show it off to your friends.


Perhaps you’re saying good bye to an old friend, keep the memories alive with a beautiful print.

A photo shoot can make an incredible gift, get a gift certificate for a friend and give them a gift they’ll never forget.


Whatever your reasons, a photo shoot with Pure Essence Photography is a fun, enjoyable experience. I will put you at ease and ensure you have a really great time and before you know it we’ll have created some beautiful images that you can be proud of. So, go ahead and treat yourself or a friend!
