If you are looking for a portrait of you and your horse, a family photograph or a business portrait, then I would love to help.
I specialise in family & equine photography. The By Kels Photography’s studio and large outdoor farm location is in Boldre (near Lymington, Hampshire), in the heart of the New Forest. My equine photoshoots can be anywhere in the UK with most of my shoots taking place in Hampshire, Devon, Dorset, Kent, Surrey and South London. Family photoshoots tend to be in the studio with location shoots available around the New Forest.
Please note, the Coombe studio is no longer taking bookings but location shoots are still available in the area.

Horses & Ponies
I’ve been riding since a little girl and for years I have been creating horse & owner portraits. Since moving to Hampshire equine portraits have become a major part of the business.
Most equine shoots are in clients’ yards but I have a great farm location here at the studio.
I adore seeing clients return as their family develops whether human or equine – it’s a delight to be capturing such important moments.
You will be invited to the studio for your viewing where I will help you choose your favourite images to display.
Children & Family
I've had extensive experience working with all age groups through my time teaching, 7 years of being an NCT chair, working with groups through Prince’s Trust and as a mother of three. I know how scary those first days with a newborn can be, how frustrating the toddler tantrums are and that some days, they only want to wear their favourite jumper! I'm more than happy to change nappies and help you bottle feed or wind your child during the shoot if you want me to.
Business Portraits are available whether for individuals or for large teams. These can take place at my studio, in your offices or at a location of your choice.
Personal branding shoots are very popular at the moment, a one to two hour shoot will produce a large selection of images that you can use on your website and social media.
A professional headshot makes all the difference in your business material. Here’s a before and after from one of my clients.
Beautiful ways to display your portraits
I will help you decide how to display your photographs. I offer a range of products including frames, boxes of mounted prints and digital images.
