Our horses are all that and more. I want to capture everything that's beautiful, silly, quirky and unique about your wonderful equine partner, and provide you with photos and artwork you will treasure forever. Our beloved pets are never with us long enough, we want them with us always. Gorgeous, keepsake photos will remind you of everything that makes your horse special, or will let you remember a treasured friend who is gone too soon.
"Valerie is amazing! She was fun, knew how to bring out the best in us and the results were fantastic!' -Aileen W.
Dogs are Some of My Favorite People
It is impossible to overstate the joy that dogs bring to our lives. My clients know they are members of the family, just with fur, and deserve their own time in front of the camera. We'll be outdoors where all dogs love to be and they can be at their most expressive. I have scouted wonderful dog-friendly locations in Lancaster, PA or I can come to you! Don't worry if your dog has to be on a leash, they are are removed in the final photos so there's nothing to distract from your furry best friend.
"Five stars are not enough to award to Valerie and Rough Coat Photography! The quality of her work speaks for itself, but what can't be seen in the photos is her patience and dedication to getting "the shot" as well as her sunny personality. She's just plain fun to work with!" - Donene M.
Let's go for some major WOW factor. These sessions provide stylized and beautifully detailed photos of your horse against a black background. Utterly dramatic and perfect for a large wall display - perhaps over your bed or above a fireplace. Your horse is the star here!
"With an eye for the magical in dogs, horses, chickens and just about any living thing you can name, Valerie's photographs convey such a depth of emotion and so much sparkle! A kind and patient photographer, she makes the process natural and enjoyable." - Julia C.
Your horse at its most expressive and natural self. We can go for high octane shots where your horse shows off their personality or gorgeous portrait style shots. Shot at your farm or we can travel to a horse-friendly location. If you want something highly dynamic and utterly unique to display in your home this session is for you.
"Hands down Valerie is the best, easiest, most fun photographer I’ve ever worked with, and she captures the most perfect images. Professional photos, family shots, and animals—I’ve asked it all of her and she’s delivered spectacularly on every score. Can’t wait to cook up the next excuse to see our world through her eyes." - Wendy D.
