Event rider Chloe and her horse Matinee
Chloe’s Mum asked me to create these portraits of her daughter, an Event rider and her horse Matinee to mark their wonderful 5 year partnership. Matinee was moving to a new family that evening as Chloe is pursuing her College career. She wants to return to eventing once her studies are over. It was a beautiful evening with gorgeous light and we had lovely grounds around her home to use. I suggested to Chloe we use three different looks a fashion, casual, and Dressage formal. Chloe has a great sense of style and I loved her red dress. I have always loved a ‘frame within a frame’ in my images and the beautiful stone arch immediately caught my eye when I arrived.
Back lighting is my favourite light and I love the way the light catches the horses ears and catches Chloe’s blonde hair
