Family photography with your pet – 4 Items to Bring to Help Incorporate your Pet(s) in your Family Photos
Your pet is part of the family. I have many requests to incorporate pets in the family photos. This is absolutely fine. We love furry friends and are always pleased to add them into our sessions! Here are some things you should remember to bring to ensure everything goes smoothly during your family photos with you pets:
- A leash. This will help you keep your pet nearby and it will also be easier to place them where we need them in the family photos. If you have a thinner leash this is best to bring as they are easier to hide or edit out if necessary.
- A friend. Having someone come with you specifically to take care of your pet is ideal. This means you won’t be stressing about what they are doing when you are trying to have family photos without them.
- Treats are great bribery for your animal. It will help keep your pet still and focused on the camera.
- A favorite toy. The noisier the better. This is also a great tool to help keep your pet’s attention on me. We can also use it for a fun game and get some fun interaction shots.
