Horse & Rider sessions are not simply about pretty pictures. They are about capturing that special bond, and more importantly,

reconnecting with that majestic creature with whom you trust your life. Pretty pictures are just the icing on the cake.

Hi there, friend!

Thank you so much for reaching out to me! As an equestrian photographer specializing in the elegant equine my passion is to create and capture your perfect world. I know from experience that holding everything together, working the ranch, being in the barn for hours a day can take so much out of you. But the love and passion you have for this way of life is what makes you feel alive; you wouldn't have it any other way. Lauren Ann Pace Photography creates an opportunity for you to feel beautiful in your element. My goal is to create an experience that highlights the love and bond between you and your horse, essentially capturing your perfect world in beautiful, artistic imagery that you will cherish for years to come.

Below, you will find all of the information about booking a session and what to expect after the session. I am always available to help you plan your outfits and locations and am happy to answer any questions along the way.

~ the process ~

step one

We will chat about what your perfect world looks like to you - each photo session is unique to you. We will discuss package options & I will answer any and all questions you have. Sessions are fully guided and all inclusive and tailored to you and your horse. All packages include a print credit to be used for professional prints, canvases and other artwork ordered directly from your private online gallery of over 50+ images.

step two

A signed contract and retainer of $200 lock in your date. I will send over my Welcome Guide to help you plan a session; what your vision of your perfect world looks like. I will also send over my pre-session questionnaire to help me get to know you and your horse better before our session. I will be here every step of the way, so you can always call/text/email me with questions, ask my opinion about outfits and anything else that may come up.

step three

The day of your session, I will arrive 30 minutes before our session to get to know you and your horse better before we begin, as well as to scout out locations with the best lighting. I always bring an assistant to help get ears forward, etc. I will tell you were to stand, where to look, even where to place your hands. I ramble on about random things in what usually results in you feeling much more comfortable and relaxed in front of my camera! ;) My goal is that this feels much more like hangin' out with your heart horse and gal pals/best friends with equal amounts of horse girl energy than it does posing in front of the camera.

location + time of day

Much of the time my clients choose to have their horse and rider sessions at their barn or wherever they board their horse, but if you have another EPIC location in mind that you would like to trailer your horse to, let's do it!

As for the time of day, early morning or late in the day is best. My personal favorite is one to two hours before sunset.

Black Background Fine Art Portraiture

The natural beauty of your horse accentuated by the timeless black background. These fine art portraits will showcase the unique personality and qualities of your special horse/animal. I will transform your living, breathing work of art into a piece of fine art to be displayed and treasured forever.

Black Background Fine Art Sessions are included in the Equestrian Diamond and Platinum Packages.

travel fee

A travel fee will be added for sessions located 50+ miles outside of zip code 95620 ($0.75 per mile) + $15/hr drive time.

How do I reserve my date?

Once a date is decided upon, I will email over the Client Agreement for you to sign, as well as an invoice where you will be able to pay your $200 retainer and make your payments with either credit card or debit card.

**flexible payment plan options are available

"Lauren was beyond awesome, so easy, friendly, fun and relaxing to work with. Wrangling kids, horses, wind all while trying to catch the setting sun was a challenge, but Lauren made everything so seamless. We’ll absolutely be coming back again for pictures in the future."

When Do I receive my photos?

Tune around rate & Online Gallery

Turn around time for your online gallery is 2-3 weeks after our session. However, I strive to deliver them sooner, if possible.
A couple days after your session, I will send you a few sneak peeks (I love sending sneak peeks)!
You will receive your personal online gallery link via email where you will be able to view your images, order prints and other products and download.
Your Wooden Box with 4x6 proof prints and/or Thumb Drive will be shipped to you within a couple weeks after final gallery delivery.

*Wooden keepsake box, including 4x6 Proof prints, and usb drive are included in the Equestrian diamond & platinum sessions, but can be added on to any portrait session

Prints & Products

Images on your walls or in an album are so much more valuable than on a tiny phone screen. Print credits can be used from your online gallery on prints, canvases, metal wall hangings, and fine art albums. I am happy to help you with your purchases; from designing mock wall art to creating a fine art album especially for you.

Social Media + Tagging

Please tag me in social media posts! Although not required, I love seeing your images put to use.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions at all! That is what I am here for.
