a legacy to last a lifetime; CUstomized to you & your best friend.

Here at Ella Chedester Photography, you can expect an experience as unique as you. Every one of my sessions is hand tailored to you and your pet so we can make the most of our time together. Will we be spending the day with your heart horse, spending time in all your favorite places around the barn? How about a day exploring the snowy mountains or sunny beach with your pup at your side? The possibilities are endless.



It all begins with planning the session! This is when we'll go over things like location, wardrobe, how you might want to display your images, whether you want Classic or Studio Style images (or both), and everything you love most dearly about your horse or dog!

You'll also receive Welcome Guide which has all the tips I've compiled (both as a photographer and groom) that will help you prepare both you and horse or dog for the session!



The session itself usually runs 1-3 hours, depending on your individual goals.

During the session, you'll have access to the Client Closet- this collection includes my seasonal wreaths for equines, extra leather halters, and "invisible halters" which are specifically designed for removal in Photoshop.

Travel between Portland and Eugene is included in your session fee. I make frequent trips to Eastern Oregon, Washington and California- just reach out to learn more!


Telling their story

A few weeks after the session, you'll receive a private online gallery with all the images.

From there, you can choose the all inclusive collection that fits your needs best, or you can customize your investment via the a la carte menu.

Whether you want a full collection of wall art to celebrate your heart horse, or a leather album with every image of your dog's greatest adventure, we customize the experience to you.

Total Investment

Your portrait session investment comes in two parts. The above experience can be booked for $275, which covers all planning, travel, and the session itself. After the session, once you've had a chance to review the images via your online gallery, you'll be able to choose which collection or keepsakes fit your needs best.

All Inclusive Collections are the complete archival solution and include edited digital files with a print release, a fine art album, and additional print credit. All inclusive collections begin at $1475. A La Carte Keepsakes include individual digital files, wall art, desktop displays, and other gift items. All of your keepsake selections are highly customizable, but most clients choose to invest a total of $950+ to their portrait experience. View keepsake details here.

When you're ready to learn more, I can get you the full Session & Keepsake Guide along with a complimentary consultation. Just reach out below!
