Horse books with a flashlight beneath the bedsheets, homemade jump courses of broomsticks and lawn chairs, model horses under every Christmas tree - I was the typical horse loving little girl in the suburbs. After riding, caring, and loving horses for over 30 years, I can assure you I'm just as "horse crazy" as you.
Translation: I totally get it's not just a horse.
Photography became a passion of mine in 2010, and I've been blessed to work with many leading industry professionals, showcase work in national and regional publications, and contribute to the happiness of clients across the United States.
I continue to be amazed by the love and passion in the relationships of owners with their horses, and it is that enthusiasm that pushes me to be more innovative and thoughtful with the story process from behind the lens. Ultimately, the artwork we create together ensures your incredible story is authentically told, preserved & celebrated with the reverence it deserves.
Bethany P Photography is proud to be a co-founder of the Equestrians of Color Photography Project.
The Equestrians of Color Photography Project (EOCP) was created to amplify the voices of equestrians of color who have stories they want to share with our community. Each photographer is an ally before a photographer and is here to listen, learn, and evolve from the stories that are shared with them.
The EOCP aims to provide a safe space for equestrians of color to feel welcomed and comfortable in front of the camera. Through a group blog, photographers will strive to shed light on challenging, uplifting, and inspirational stories of Equestrians of Color. By raising awareness and supporting an inclusive and diverse equestrian community, the EOCP will bring positive and developmental change to our industry on a global scale.

Bethany P Photography is proud to be an industry partner with The Right Horse Initiative.
As a partner in The Right Horse Initiative, I'm proud to support a national movement reframing the conversation about equine adoption. The Right Horse Initiative, a program of the ASPCA, is a collective of industry professionals and equine welfare advocates working together to improve the lives of horses in transition through a dialogue of kindness and respect.
Bethany P Photography is working with The Right Horse Initiative to promote the bond between horses and humans. We are good people for good horses, and everyone who loves horses has ownership in this movement. Together, the goal is to shatter the stigma and reframe the conversation around equine adoption in order to massively increase horse adoption in the United States.
THE RIGHT HORSE
Bethany P Photography is proud to be a board member and official photographer for the non-profit organization, After the Races.
After the Races is a 501(c)3 Thoroughbred rehabilitation and rehoming center located in Elkton, Maryland that takes in retiring Thoroughbred racehorses. Horses come to After the Races through various backstretch programs dedicated to finding good homes for horses in their care.
Since After the Races’ inception in late 2010, they have found an increasing desire among racing professionals to see their horses get a second chance and could not be more excited to work with them to realize this dream. Over 400 horses have found new homes and second careers thanks to the efforts of ATR and their caring volunteers.
