Pets are often considered to be a part of the family, so it only makes sense that you are including pets in your family photos. Here are a few reasons why you should consider bringing your furry friends to your next family photoshoot:
Pets bring Joy & Personality to the Photos
Your pet is a unique and beloved member of your family. Including your pets in your family photos allows them to add their own special flair to the session. Including your family pet in the photoshoot can be a fun experience for your children. Having your pet present can help to create a more relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Your children can play with and interact with your pet, which can help to take the focus off of the camera and allow for some fun candid shots and showcase the special relationship your children have with your pet.
Pets are part of your Family
Pets are such a special and important part of our lives. Including your pets in your family photos not only allows them to be part of the memories you’re capturing, but it also helps to tell the full story of your family. Your pet has likely been by your side through all sorts of milestones and memories, the big life events to the everyday moments. They have been a constant presence in your life, providing love, support, and companionship. Including your pet in your family photos is a way to honour and celebrate the bond that you share with them.
Memories of the family Pet
Including your family pet in your family photos is a great way to create lasting memories of your furry friend. As your pet grows over the years, it can be bittersweet to look back on photos and see how much they’ve grown and changed. By including your pets in your family photos, you’ll have a visual record of their place in your family. These photographs can be especially meaningful if your pet is no longer with you, as they can help to preserve the memories of the joy and love that they brought to your family. Here is another article I wrote that expands on this point and the importance of documenting your family.
Booking a Session that includes your Pet
When booking a family photoshoot with your pet let me know that you will be bringing your fur-baby. It might also be helpful to bring some treats or a favourite squeaky toy that I can use to draw attention and capture some playful, candid shots. It is also a good idea to make sure that your pet is well-fed and has had an opportunity to relieve themselves before the photoshoot, as this can help to prevent any accidents or distractions during the session. By taking a few simple precautions you can help ensure that your family photoshoot with your pet goes smoothly and yields beautiful, memorable images.
