Pet photography is a great way to get gorgeous family photographs that everyone will love. It is a perfect way to get everyone to relax while you are getting photographs taken, with zero fake smiles! When you bring along your pets, you will even notice that reluctant teenagers are more willing to get their portraits taken if their favourite pet is with them. I am going to take a quick look at how you can get gorgeous family photographs with pets to create the best memories for you and your family for years to come!
You Can Bring Any Pet
When it comes to getting photographs with your pets, many people assume you can only get photographs with dogs. However, I love taking photographs of all different types of pets. I had one client who brought his pet rats with him to the shoot and I was able to get some simply stunning photos of him with the rats. It was quite fun carrying around the rat cage and taking these gorgeous photos. In fact, my client called me a few years later and said that he appreciated the photographs because both of his pet rats passed away. The photographs were a great way to remember them. Having your favourite pet, no matter what it is, is a great way to have the best, most relaxed photograph session while creating wonderful, long-lasting memories.
Photograph Cats in Your Own Home
Cats are some of the hardest pets to photograph. Unless they are well trained, you can’t take them out to a park or the beach. Instead, I always suggest getting gorgeous family photographs with you cats at your home. I can capture some stunning and fun images while you are able to relax in the comfort of your own home. However, if your cat is well trained, I will gladly take photographs of them wherever you’d like to go.
Let Your Dogs Run and Play Before the Photographs
Of course, dogs are the easiest and most popular pets to have in your family photographs. I always suggest that young, energetic dogs should have time to run around and play before the session. This will help to keep the session stress-free. A great way to do this is to get to the location a bit before the session starts to let your dog run and play. This will help you get gorgeous family photographs because your dog will be more willing to sit still for a photograph and not want to chase and play with everything it sees.
