Anne Milligan is the first photographer in North America to specialize in creating costumed equestrian portraits in her magical "Ride into Time" experience. Her art is strikingly unique, evoking the romance of a bygone era, capturing the individual spark of each subject, and exploring the human/animal bond.
No matter your level of horsemanship, whether you love dressing up or want to be shot in your favourite jeans, whether you want to celebrate your horse’s perfect piaffe or a walk down an old farm lane. In consultation with you, Anne will create the perfect (and fun!) session to achieve your vision. Included in your package are digital and print portraits, chosen by you from an online gallery.
So celebrate a special relationship, give the perfect gift to that person who has everything,, commemorate a personal milestone, with an unforgettable experience and beautiful art that is uniquely you.

We will discuss your purpose for the photographs, your relationship with your horse and your ideas for your shoot including number of subjects, mood, venue and settings, costume and tack choice (if desired), activities (at liberty, in hand, headshots, bareback, riding, driving, etc), We will also settle on a date, time and location and deal with any logistical questions. You will be sent an information sheet to help you prepare.
