Hello! My name is Emma Dain. I am 19 years old living in Halifax, N.S. Canada. I have traveled around the Maritimes taking pictures of people and their horses. As the child of a wildlife photographer and mom vet, I have a love for animals but especially horses.
As a child, I always enjoyed seeing and petting horses that my family and I would come across. At age 8, my mom got me my first riding lesson and I was hooked. For a few years I rode lesson horses and took basic lessons. I began leasing my first horse at age 12.
A dream came true when I was 14 and my parents bought me my first horse, August. August is my heart horse and she will be with me forever, she has taught me so much in the saddle but also on the ground! Together we do hunter jumper and natural horsemanship.
August has also been a great model for me and has been my practice dummy for many things, including new cameras, lenses, black backgrounds, and many more.
“An incredible photographer and so awesome to work with. Emma is so talented!”
“Emma's photos are phenomenal. She doesn't just take pictures, she captures those special moments between horse and rider. I always tell myself I'm not going to spend money but I can't help myself when she shows me the photos. Absolutely recommend Emma to take pictures of you and your special fur baby!”
“My daughter Izzy is new to leasing and has never had professional pictures done before. Emma was so amazing and helped my daughter pose just right. All those who know my daughter know that she is not a fan of having her picture taken. Well Emma, you made it so much fun, you captured my daughter's smile perfectly. Thank you so much, we give you 10/10 stars, and recommend you to anyone.”
“I enjoyed every minute of my session with Emma. She is eager, friendly, and most of all passionate about her work!! Emma has a great eye for capturing the connection between horse and rider and makes you feel completely at ease in front of the camera. I absolutely recommend her work and can’t wait to watch her grow throughout the Maritimes!”
