frequently asked questions:
All sessions offered by Giana Terranova Photography are laid back, worry-free experiences. The amount of preparation is completely up to you, but there are several suggestions. Outfit changes may be available depending on sessions, so bring different options. Always dress appropriately for the weather, but you can wear casual, dress, or horse show attire. Having hair and make up done is suggested, but I encourage you to prepare yourself in a way that makes you most comfortable.
As for the horses, I'd suggest you do whatever show preparation that you might do for a competition, for example: clipped, clean, hooves painted, make up, and clean bridle for example.
I encourage you share images with your friends! Credit is preferred but not required. If you'd like to credit, tag Giana Terranova Photography on Facebook or @gianaterranova_photography on instagram.
There are several options to choose from. Payment by check or credit card is preferred and payment is required immediately following the end of the session. I use square for credit card payments, which is a safe and secured payment company with receipts.
Background is very important for these type of sessions. Greenery and barn architecture is preferred but I am rather flexible. Horses are unpredictable animals, so home or locations they are familiar with are the best. However, if there are other locations you are interested in with better backdrops that you are comfortable to trailer to, let me know.
Time wise, the best lighting is early morning and late afternoons. If there is a scheduling restriction that requires a session to be planned mid-day, however, extra steps can be taken.
Digitals are included in every session package. You will receive your images, usually through email, with a link to a personalized online gallery from which you can download the files straight to your computer. Completion of images depends on the type of session, but feel free to inquire.
