The barn is where you get to escape everything and just breathe.
The bond you have with your horse, is unlike anything else. He or she is your best friend. The one who's always there for you. That special bond is what I love to capture in images you'll treasure forever.

Capturing the love between a horse and their human, is so precious to me. The bond you have with your horse, is so incredible. These images are so valuable and you will treasure them forever. I'm stopping time for you in these photos, fleeting moments that will now last forever. Horses are precious, your bond is even more precious.
I've been a professional photographer since 2006, having photographed 300+ weddings in gorgeous locations all around the world and having my wedding & editorial work published in magazines and on leading wedding blogs around the world. I've won multiple awards with my wedding images, equine & dog portraits and travel images and I've taught wedding photography workshops to fellow wedding photographers in Europe.
I love light and nature, am a yogi, love salted caramel tea and iced coffee, my dogs are my best friends (I have a Cairn terrier and a Border Collie/Mini Australian shepherd mix) and Mustang horses are my favourite in the world. I am based both in Tucson, Arizona and The Hague, The Netherlands (where I was born and raised) and am fluent in both English and Dutch.
I'd be incredibly honoured to work with you on creating timeless heirlooms of you and your best friend! Contact me for more information or to inquire about booking a session.
Sessions are photographed outdoors, somewhere where your horse feels comfortable, which is usually around the barn.
Black background images are done in a barn isle or at the barn doors. If you don't have a barn isle or larger covered area but would like black background portraits, please let me know beforehand so we can discuss what options there are.
During the session I will take photos of your horse by him/herself and photos of you with your horse if you've booked the Horse & Human package. We'll discuss everything we do because you know your horse best!
Don't stress or be nervous about whether or not your horse will behave during a shoot. Working with animals is always unpredictable and I have a ton of patience with them. I know horses, I'm around them almost daily, so don't stress, we'll do fine!
I would advice you to work him or her before the shoot, to get some excess energy out of their system.
Whether you want photos of your horse in tack or not is entirely up to you. Whichever you feel represents your best friend best and we can do both too. You will receive a PDF with info to prepare you and your horse for your session.
I also have a special photoshoot package for Mustang trainers who are training a wild one for a TIP challenge or Extreme Mustang Makeover. This contains 2 shoots during training and one portrait session of you with your Mustang and just the horse at the end of the training process to tell the complete story of your journey with special horse whose life you have changed forever by taking a chance on them and getting them out of the holding pens.
I'd be honoured to create these heirloom pieces with you and for you.
collections begin at $175 for equine sessions and at $350 for horse & human sessions. The mustang trainer collection is $375.
Please contact me to receive the full pricing pdf.
gift vouchers are also available, Either for a certain amount or for a certain collection.
Anouschka's pictures not only capture the shot, they capture the feeling. The people in these pictures came to a clinic to learn about their horse. Once you see these pictures, you can feel the bond that was brought even closer through the day.
It takes an amazing eye to capture those split seconds, and Anouschka does it so beautifully. It is such a blessing to have the moments captured with such detail and love. If you want a photographer that will give you memories to last through the generations, this is the one you must have.

I love Anouschka’s photographs! She is so passionate in her work and you can see her talent in every picture she takes.
Because of her I have the most amazing pictures with my favourite horses which will capture my special moments with them for ever.

Working with Anouschka has been an overall amazing experience. She listened to my ideas and gave the right instructions to create the perfect pictures from them. The working atmosphere was relaxed and cheerful so I felt very comfortable during to shoot. The pictures turned out to be stunning!
She has a unique eye for catching movements in a way that they look really natural. Also her style of choosing the lighting is magical to me.
I’m so looking forward to book her again!

Not only does Anouschka find the visual beauty seemingly everywhere she looks, but she somehow captures the emotional magic of the most important moments.
When I look back on photos she’s taken of me and Pisco, my horse of many years, I can feel every ounce of love that was shared between us.
Thanks to Anouschka’s talent and skill, I can hold that feeling close to me whenever I need it most.

Anouschka is an amazing, passionate professional. She has the ability to connect with horses, get in touch with their essence and put it in pictures.
Through her photography she generates emotions which last forever.
Every time I look back at the pictures she took for me of my clinic, I get surprised, because I notice details that I didn’t before.

Anouschka has an incredible ability to capture special moments on camera.
I was delighted with the photos she shot with some some of my favourite horses. She really captured the essence of the unique bond between horses and people.
The shoot was great fun and I will always treasure the photos as a memory of that extraordinary time.
