A few highlights from the 2023 Houston Dressage Society Winter Show...





If you missed out on photos this time, be sure to catch me a the Emerald Classic, Diamond Classic and HDS Summer Show.  I have two options for show photography... you can pay a $25 sitting fee and purchase your photos later, or you can pre-order your full gallery of ride photos for $150.  I guarantee at least 20 nice, well timed, well composed images in your package, but most riders end up with 40-50.  But even if you only get the minimum, it's still a great deal!  You can sign up by emailing me at [email protected] or by texting me at 832-971-8886.  It's never to early to get on the list, so give me a shout before you get busy preparing the week before the show.  


In addition to ride photos, I usually have time during the weekend for at least a couple of mini portrait sessions. Horse shows are the only time I offer "mini sessions" and it's a great opportunity to capture a handful of fabulous horse and rider portraits with a reduced sitting fee and without travel expenses.  Plus, there are some really beautiful vignettes for photos around the equestrian center! These 20 minute portrait sessions are $50 and the orders are handled differently than my regular show photos.  Instead of ordering through my website, we'll set up a time to chat on the phone and I will assist you with finalizing your selections.  If you need help with sizes, I have software that will show you exactly how your portrait will look on the wall in your home or office  My prints and canvases are produced by one of the top labs in the country and all portraits are printed on mounted on double weight artboard and lustre coated for UV protection.  Because so much detail goes into one of my fine art portraits, I have a different price list for these products.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about pricing and availability.
