Emily and Steph, October 2018

This was the MOST fun! Arranging to take 2 girls and their ponies down to the beach for a sunrise shoot with our delegates was the best idea for a shoot on location. What an awesome morning we had.

Emily, her pony Smudge and her Golden Retriever Murphy, were joined by good friend Steph and her two ponies Isshe and Mole. We got down to Avon Beach in Dorset at 7am. It was the most beautiful morning- clear and fresh, with the low sun casting the most stunning light on the quiet beach.

The girls were up for having some fun- including wading out into the sea on horseback. Smudge found it all rather exciting- making quite a splash to show what a good time we was having! Emily did well to stay on and not get too soaked!!

My absolute favourite part of photographing on the beach was the beach huts- there’s nothing more beautiful to me than peeling paint and interesting colours to use as a backdrop. Our delegates had the opportunity to split into small groups and photograph the pair individually, before bringing them back together to capture their friendship.

Our delegates were thoroughly spoilt for choice with locations- it’s not every day you get to spend sunrise on the beach in the UK!
