A Jess Bell photography
Session consists of three steps:

Step One

Design & planning

I will meet you at a place of your choosing to discuss what you would like to achieve on the day of your photo session, any particular images you would like to capture, and to review samples, products and pricing.

Step Two

Photography session

Your experience will be completely unique to you. Your portrait session will take place at a location of your choosing and will last for a previously agreed time period. Each session is fully customized to each client’s wants and needs.

Step Three

Image reveal & ordering

After I have processed your images, we will again meet to view your gallery. This is the time that you make your image selections and decide how you would like them printed. Clients normally spend between $800 and $3000 on their artwork at this point.

Black equine photography

Low key equine portraits

These sophisticated low key (“black background”) equine portraits are very popular. I set up a mini-studio in your barn to carefully control ambient light to create soft, timeless images.
