What do I need to Know?

Day of Session

The day is finally here! You are super excited for your shoot...all you need to do is get ready! Sooo what should you get ready?

Always dress for the weather, if you have booked a bonding session, you want to make sure you look just as good as your horse or pony! Please plan accordingly to the session you have booked.

I highly recommend you treat this session like your going to a show. Ensure your horse or pony is clean with no green spots, and clip and braid if you like. I can do a lot in post processing but cleaning a muddy horse I can not. I also recommend clipping, those fuzzy ears and whiskers will be highly visible against a black background.

Use your show tack if we're getting any shots with equipment in them, ensure they are clean! I recommend taking the reins off and just have a thin line attached that will be later edited out.

For black background sessions, please ensure the flooring is clean and orderly as some of it will be in your photos. If we're setting up in your barn doorway, make sure the floor is swept. If we're setting up in your arena, see if you can't get it dragged before hand.

Also let your fellow barn mates know I'm coming! Nothing could be worse then to be in the middle of a session we get unexpected company or a photo-bomber.

Social Media

Can you post your photos on Instagram? On Facebook? Of course! I would love nothing more than for you to share your images with friends and family. Credit is preferred but not required. If you would like to tag me - my instagram is @pallettpics or Pallett Photography on Facebook.

How do I get my photos?

You'll receive a link, usually through email to a personalized online gallery where you will be able to view your photos. These photos are considered 'proofs' and will have my watermark on them for online and social media use only. You can certainly purchase prints and printing rights that do not have my watermark on them, please check out my services below!

When should I book?

The best times to shoot are early morning and late afternoon into the evening. I never recommend doing a session midday due to the harsh lighting. Please keep in mind that with sessions scheduled an hour or longer, that I am only able to book one in the morning and one in the evening due to lighting.

Travel Fees

Travel fees will always be discussed at the time the session is booked. Usually its $1.00 for every mile outside a 15 mile area of Pike Creek, DE or at cost for any long distance travel - including but not limited to airfare, lodging, or rental service.

Rescheduling

Sometimes life just does not work out. Sometimes it's due to inclement weather, an injury to you or your horse, or I am unable to make it - but all sessions booked are applicable to three rescheduling dates. If you wish to reschedule your session please contact me 48 hours prior to your scheduled time.
