How to Prep for a Photo Session with Your Pet

For many people, pets are furry members of the family. It comes as no surprise that they want to include their pets in their photos. Including your pets in your photo session does require a little extra preparation but it is certainly doable.

Below are a few tips to prepare you for your photo session with your pet

To make this work, you will need to get your pet to sit still and behave. Pets can get very excited when new people are around so let your pet become acquainted with your photographer beforehand. Bring treats and toys that your pet enjoys so that you have something to use to grab their attention if necessary.

Keep a leash or harness ready, just in case. Even though your pet might be well trained, it never hurts to be prepared. You may also want to arrange your poses so you can hold onto your pet securely without it looking like you are hanging on for dear life. Your photographer will help you with this.

If you know that your photo session is going to take some time, give your pets the chance to take breaks, walk around and drink water. You won’t be able to force a pet to sit still if they are thirsty or agitated.

As a pet owner you probably know how perceptive your animals are to energy and emotions, so it’s important that you are relaxed when you get to your pet photo session. If you really want to keep your pets relaxed too, try and arrange your photo session in a place where your pet will feel most comfortable such as your garden or a park.

For the best results, try and work with a photographer that has previously worked with animals. This will help make the process of photographing your pets even more enjoyable.

Fall Pet Portraits at Mann's Best Friend Pet Store

Each year I am privileged to be able to set up a studio inside the super pet store in Moore, Oklahoma, "Mann's Best Friend". Lisa Jensen is very generous with her time and space. 

We usually attend Barktoberfest where the pets come in dressed in their costumes ready for portraits. This is a blast and just hilarious. This year I wasn't able to be there for that event, but I did get to create an event called "Fall Paws 2016". This was just as fun! Vanessa Wells from Vanessa Wells Images and my sweet daughter Savannah was there to help out. Savannah was using my iPhone on a Gimbal to record most of the video in the video above. Vanessa is always a HUGE help with editing and printing the photos. We print 5x7 photos on-site and put in nice sleeves with my business card.

We look forward to December where we will be photographing more, or some of the same, fluffies in their favorite Christmas attire.
