What to Wear for Your Winter Equine Photoshoot

what to wear for your winter equine photoshoot

I get so excited talking about clothes for shoots, and picking outfits for winter sessions is great fun. Your outfit choices can really make or break your shoot, so it’s important to get it right.

Us horsey girls are no strangers to a bit of cold weather and a whole lot of mud, and winter is actually my favourite time of year for clothes. You can definitely wrap up warm and still look fabulous!

I love moving over to my winter wardrobe. And I love seeing my clients’ winter wardrobe choices, too. Coordinating the layers, the colours, the textures, I love it! And both your outfit colours and your horse’s coat colour will really pop, against a less colourful winter landscape.

You can go a little accessory crazy, aswell. I’m thinking woolly hats, mittens, cosy scarves, wellies, hair accessories, cute umbrellas, statement necklaces, even exercise sheets for your horses. Let’s get really creative!

So, if you’re thinking of going for a gorgeous winter shoot, here are some ideas for you to think about when it comes to picking your outfits…

This is just a small selection of ideas for your winter shoot. The important thing to remember is to go for clothes that you feel totally comfortable and confident in and that fit you well. Ill fitting clothes are such a distraction from your photographs, whether they are too small or too large. And if you’re not comfortable; if you’re cold, or feeling self concious in what you’re wearing, it will show in your images. Dress for the weather, rather than trying to pretend it’s still summer.

And don’t forget to accessories. Great accessories can really make a huge difference for your outfit.

Handy hint: Go for outfits that match, or at least don’t clash, with your home interior colour scheme. If you’re going to hang these on the wall, you don’t want your hot pink dress to be arguing with your terracotta sofa!
