5 Tips for Preparing for a Country Inspired Photoshoot

Tip 1: The best way to start off a photo shoot is to share ideas that you both may have for the session prior to the photo shoot. Asking lots of questions and coming up with a plan will give the client ideas of how the session will go. Our main goal was to shoot the majority with the horse and to have a few solo shots as well.

Tip 2: The week before the session, Tenisha met & rode Freckles the horse and got a chance to see how the horse took to her commands. This went very well and this made the photo session go smooth. Her sister and niece also joined us on the day of the shoot to help get the horse’s attention in some photos. This was a big help too.
Tip 3: Attire is important. Tenisha wore a plaid shirt, cowboy boots and jeans. She accented this with metallic gold nails and gold jewelry. Her choice of clothing went absolutely perfect with the fall country theme she was going for.
Tip 4: Location was crucial. We wanted to capture all the areas around the barn. We arranged photos against the stable itself, in the pasture, on the road, near fences and hay. We utilized every inch of our surroundings and made it work in our favor. Once we arrived at the location we were able to point out dozens of little spots which make the perfect country background.

Tip 5: Letting the client know to let emotion shine through the shoot. I asked Tenisha to laugh in some photos, to look off and think about a serious moment, to walk down the road and give me some hip action. It was important that all of her photos were different and reflected her outgoing personality.
