bond sessions

Honor your memories. Celebrate Today. 

The connection you share is the culmination of everything you’ve poured into your equestrian journey—late night barn checks, learning to drive a trailer, mountains of vet bills, enough research for a part-time nutritionist career, and binders filled with detailed clinic notes.

That bond is special, rare, something to be protected and preserved for a lifetime.

That’s where I step in, to intimately capture this chapter of your equestrian story.

So when years have passed and this moment is just a vague memory, these portraits rekindle your story as vividly as if they’re unfolding in front of you with your horse right by your side.

You’ve waited your whole life for THIS horse.
Let’s make sure you always remember him.

Cory (Wellington, FL)

She makes you feel comfortable in front if the camera and is able to capture the most amazing moments whether they were planned or not! She is able to capture stunning images between horse and rider/owner that really show just how much of a bonding relationship a horse and human can have.

Bethany captures your true emotion ...

SEVA (st louis, MO)

She gave advice and answered my millions of questions. She was incredibly knowledgeable about equine body language and really captured the essence of my horse and our relationship better than I could have ever expected. The photos are absolutely breathtaking and I will cherish them forever!

Bethany was there every step of the way ...

kristin (crownsville, md)

The thing I love the most about Bethany is her ability to capture the love between horse and rider. Once you are behind Bethany’s lens you will feel comfortable and relaxed. The art that comes from a session is absolutely incredible!

The final step to preserving your story is turning your favorite moments into tangible memories. Museum-quality wall art lets you enjoy your horse during your everyday life, while handcrafted albums house your whole story in elaborate detail. Designed for gifting or decorating your office, small prints pack a big emotional punch, especially when given to those who’ve supported you along the way.

Are you a visual learner? I know I am! I want to SEE what things will look like before making a purchase. 

That's why with all my clients, I offer to digitally impose your images onto the spaces in your home - all it takes is a quick snap of your phone! You'll take as many photos in as many spaces around your home as you'd like, and we'll use those images to choose the best photo sizes and best mediums for your space.

ARTWORK CREATED FOR YOUR HOME

Q

I’m in close contact with you the 24 hours before your shoot. If Mother Nature looks suspicious, we'll reschedule for another date as close to the original session date as possible. I usually keep a few dates reserved each month for just such occasions! 

What if it rains?

Q

Yes! Travel fees are charged for sessions outside the state of Missouri or outside a 100 mile radius from Elkton, MD. Travel fees can be evenly distributed between several individuals if a group shoot is scheduled. 

Do you travel?

Q

Part of my talents are finding the beautiful places you never thought existed! I've managed to find amazing backgrounds in every situation. Trust me - my eye is trained to see things differently than what you see every day.

What if my farm isn't picture perfect?

Q

If your horse is typically antsy, you will want to exercise him earlier in the day to work off some of that extra energy. If our shoot time is relatively close to feeding time, please feed before the session so he isn’t worked up missing a meal! Just make sure to clean leftovers off his face!

What if my horse is high energy?

Q

I will provide clear instructions on how to position your body and your horse. There’s no need to worry about where to look and how to stand. After 30 years of experience with horses and nearly a decade as a photographer, I know what will be the most flattering for their conformation and your body type.

What if I'm awkward posing?

Q

Every session comes with web size digital images - share them with family, on social media, a personal blog, and more. While these images are not printable, I’m happy to work with magazines, yearbooks and other publications to provide an editorial release and the best image size for their needs. Printable digital images are available for separate purchase.
