Horse Photography – an emotional story


equine photography sheffield yorkshire

As a photographer I have been part of so many lives and have told many a story through my images.  Stories mainly of happy times, new beginnings and milestones.  Some of these stories are emotional … but none more so that the story of Emily and Scooby the horse.
An emotional call from Emily, the stable manager at Dunston Hole Farm where our studio is located resulted in dropping everything and capturing a memory never to be relived.  Her own horse, Scooby, has been suffering terrible pain in his legs and Emily had to take the painful decision to have him put to sleep.
On Sunday I spent a glorious couple of hours sharing a very special time on what was to be their last evening together.  As Emily said her goodbyes and spoken gently to Scooby I respectfully captured their evening together.
The video below shows just a few of those lovely moments…

    Myself and Emily would like to thank you Chris for doing these amazing pictures of our much loved and much missed friend.
    It was the hardest thing Emily and I have ever had to do making the decision to have scooby put to sleep but it was the right one for him. These pictures will always remind her how much they loved one another and how close they came in the 5 years they where together. Thank you once again.

    Knowing both Emily and Scooby and having watched them together many times, their closeness & gentle teasing of each other. I’ve been astonished and captivated. I have never witnessed anything like it before and probably never will again. The photographer has captured all of this, a master of his trade.
