Capturing the moments of today that will warm your heart tomorrow
Working with me
You are busy with life, with your family. Whatever time you have left, you want to spend with your horse. Yes, you would like beautiful photos of you and your horse. And yes, you would love to create amazing artwork with those photos. But there's always something else that requires your attention first.
I'm an enthusiastic horse lover who can help you capture these precious moments with your horse and create the artwork for you.
Behind the lens
Do you deeply enjoy spending time with your horse?
Do you want to perpetuate those precious moments?
Then you came to the right place!
I take delight in capturing these majestic animals. I want to catch on camera the bond you and your horse have built, and I want to give you the opportunity to relive that experience at any time.
In each of your images, you will be able to see the love between you and your horse, the art-to-heart conversations you have with your best friend.
I am Caroline Nijs,
a horse lover turned photographer,
passionate about both.
Why I love my job
It is my goal to make you feel good in front of the camera.
All people are beautiful. Our bodies tell our stories and every story is worth telling. Your horse accepts you the way you are. And so do I. So you can relax and just be in the moment with your horse. And the amazing, honest images we will create together will reflect the beauty of that moment.
I strive to be an inclusive photographer who embraces all differences.
A photo session with me means a safe, judgment-free space for you.
Does this resonate with you?
“Caroline, we just saw these and clicked through. LOVE THEM!"
Upon booking a date & time for your photo session, I will ask you to pay CHF 500'-. This secures our appointment. This advance will then be converted into a credit, to be used toward any of the packages above. Prices start at CHF 1.540'- . Most horse lovers spend between CHF 2.250'- & 3.500'- .
Contact me for more information on pricing, or any other question you have.
What to expect?
My goal is to ensure a relaxed experience that will result in the most beautiful memories for you. Which is why I will guide you through everything, you don't have to worry about anything at all. At the time of the booking, we will schedule not only the photo session, but also a pre-session consultation and the private viewing.
What is included?
Here is what your experience with Caroline Nijs Photography will include:
To make sure you will have the best experience possible, you and I will go through the process beforehand in a pre-session consultation. We will talk about your horse, outfits and locations, and I will answer all your questions.
In the days before the session, I will provide you with a client guide for outfits, and other useful information.
I will also ask you to fill out a questionnaire to to know you and your horse better.
On the day of the photo session, we will have a walk around the yard to see what areas and backdrops complement the both of you. We will also discuss which outfits and accessories will work best with respect to the surroundings.
During the photo session, I will help you with posing you and your horse.
We will take however much time we need, but this mostly depends on how much horse can handle. I have noticed most horses do not tolerate these shenanigans much longer than 2 hours.
The result of this experience will be a collection of artful photographs that you will want to showcase in your home.
During the private viewing, I will show you the edited version of each photo. This is why my process takes a bit longer than that of other photographers, who show you the unedited photos.
We will then talk about the products. This will depend on the package you choose, and if you opt to add different products. I will professionally advise you on the different options and how they fit into your home.
Whenever possible, I personally deliver your photos and products.
"Caroline did a great job with our family, including both two-legged and four-legged family members. She was flexible with schedules, had great ideas for scenery and was patient, like you need to be with animals!
Her passion for both horses and photography showed, and the overall experience with her was fantastic, with some awesome pictures to remember our little girl and horses for years to come! Thanks Caroline!"
