Amy’s Portrait Session

Amy’s Portrait Session

Amy’s portrait session post has been up for some time and I’m coming back to it now to add to it a bit. Looking through these images, all I can think is how incredibly easy it is to portray something in a way you want the viewer to see them. Basically, what you see here, is not at all how things happened!
So this big beauty, as gorgeous as he is, is actually quite a rascal! We decided to use the park next to the stable yard to do the photos, just because it would be more pretty. And it all started ok, he was a bit excited when we started and was looking all over, but that is to be expected. I also find it quite exciting going out on mini adventures. He however didn’t really calm down. The more we shot the more excited he got.

Looking at these next two photos I can’t help but giggle. The first photo was taken as he just promptly stopped while we were walking down the road. The second one was as he was about to start trying to bite Amy. Also just before he started running around in circles!

When the drama started

He calmed down a fraction of a second and I had to leap into action. We decided to not move him incase he started playing up again, so I very quickly ran around him, snapping off some shots. This couldn’t have lasted more than 30 seconds! I was busy shooting when some dogs ran past. Next thing you know he his bucking and rearing, until he eventually got loose. Thank goodness he stopped a short distance away, and we managed to catch him again quite easily.

 We managed to calm him down for a few seconds again, and I started taking some pictures, when the next minute he was just galloping off home. He had suddenly reared and managed to get out of Amy’s grasp and took off back to his stable. Luckily he knew where home was. Unfortunately though he slipped on the road as he went around the corner into the stable yard and took quite a bad fall cutting himself quite badly. So our shoot was cut short and instead we spent the time helping the vet clean the wounds!
I have recently heard he has recovered well and is getting back into work now. So hopefully sometime soon I can go back and finish off the shoot – this time I’ll insist we stay in the stable yard!

Pet portraits in general

Pet shoots are always great fun – for me and the client. But it’s important to take precautions so that this kind of thing doesn’t happen. You know your pet best. You know what seems to upset them. I highly recommend being completely honest with your photographer so that you can work together to get the best pictures in the least stressful scenario for your pet and you.
