Meet Kaitlyn

+ What does being a private client entail?

Personalized photo coverage of your favorite horse shows, from behind the scenes, warm up, show ring, and everything in-between. Kaitlyn is devoted to capturing all of your important horse show memories in an artistic, unique way. You'll recieve all of your high resolution photos of all of your horses in a private gallery.

+ What horse shows are you available at?

As of now, I am shooting at WEF, Kentucky, Spruce Meadows, and a number of GCT events. Please see my schedule below and if you have interest in private client coverage at other shows, please reach out and I'll see if I can make it happen!

+ Does price change depending on my number of horses?

No! The price is per rider.

+ What if there is ring conflict?

If two of my clients are going at the same time, it will be up to my discretion who to shoot. At WEF I have an assistant to aid with the amount of rings going at one time.

+ Can I request certain photos?

Sure! Say for example your favorite jump is in the ring (we all have them) or your grandma is in town and you want some extra candids, do let me know and I'll do my best to make it happen.

+ What if the weather is bad while I'm showing?

If you're still showing, I'm still shooting. Plus, showing in the rain photos can be so fun!
