Pet Photography and our approach to capturing your pet’s personality

Photographing a pet is a wonderful experience for everyone- it is especially something I love doing.  Pets have a unique personality which is evident through their eyes. We approach Pet Photography in the same way we photograph headshots.

Our focus point is on their eyes.  Everything comes through the eyes, and this becomes the big draw.  We can and do photograph the animals running and jumping or playing with their owners. But the end result is you get a picture that is too common or generic.  Each animal is so unique in their personality that the only way to get this image to come through is through the eyes.

The other reason is that we want these pictures on the wall- we want them printed big.  The effect would be totally different if you had a 16×20 print of your dog jumping or running. For a truly awesome bada bing moment- the prints should be of the face and eyes.

The drama and personality are infinitely more powerful as a print when it is a headshot. Photographing pets with a professional photographer is an opportunity to immortalize the unique bond between you and your furry friend.

Preparing Your Pet for the Shoot- Photographing Pets

Start by grooming your pet to ensure they look their best on camera. Brush their fur, trim their nails, and clean their eyes to enhance their appearance in photographs.

 Preparing your pet ensures they are ready to shine during the photoshoot.

Choosing the Right Location

Select a location that is familiar and comfortable for your pet, such as a favorite park or your own backyard. Consider the lighting conditions and background scenery to create captivating photographs that highlight your pet’s personality.

The right location sets the stage for memorable pet portraits.

Pet Photography- Interacting Naturally with Your Pet

Engage in activities that bring out your pet’s personality and capture candid moments of joy and playfulness. Whether it’s tossing a ball, going for a walk, or simply cuddling on the couch, natural interactions result in genuine and heartwarming photographs. Pet Photography should capture the natural look of your pet. 

Natural interactions create authentic and emotional pet portraits.

By following these tips and collaborating with a professional photographer, you’ll create timeless photographs that celebrate the love and companionship you share with your pet. Together, you’ll embark on a memorable photoshoot experience that captures the essence of your pet’s unique personality and the special bond you share.
