Do you remember that horse crazy girl at school?
Well, that was me (chances are it was you too!)
I’d blame my Mum for raising a bottle fed orphan foal along side me and a german shepherd puppy when I was a baby, but with generations of horsewoman and cavalry ancestors before me, the love of horses is in my blood.
You believe there is something magical about these beautiful animals. The connection you have with your heart horse is one of the most precious things in your life and you wish it could last forever.
You’ve been thinking about a photoshoot with your horse before you both get much older, but you’re like me – you don’t feel photogenic, you’re nervous and awkward in front of the camera and hate stiff, boring formal photos that look nothing like the real you (or worse those awful snaps that friends and family take that over emphasise the double chin and muffin top you would rather not see!)
The thing is, looking good in front of the camera is all about being relaxed and flattering posing that is natural and authentic.
But you don’t have to be a model to look good in photos!
Your horse is the best prop in the world to help you relax and be yourself in front of the camera. It’s my job to gently guide you with flattering, authentic posing to capture you and your horse at your beautiful best in a way that is perfectly natural to both of you!
Horses, family, dogs and photography aside, I have a thing for binge watching Supernatural, Outlander (for the history!), GoT and more repeats of McClouds Daughters than I can remember (and I still ball my eyes out during ‘those’ episodes).
If you have seen my work before, you may have seen the recent re-brand from Michelle Wrighton Photography to Three red Ponies – you can read the story behind this big change here.
I live on a small farm in the south west of WA with my husband, our three adult kids (yeah I’m that old), six horses and five border collies (yeah I’m that crazy).
I’m often out at horse events, so if you see a coffee drinking shortie with wild curly hair and a camera, that will be me, so come over and say hi, I’d love to meet you!
And if you would love natural, personality filled photographs of the equine love of your life, let’s have a chat about telling your unique story through beautiful art you will be proud to display in your home and show off to your family and friends.
