Who deserves a spot up on your wall or on your nightstand more than your furry best friend? A professional photoshoot is a perfect way to honor your sweet pet and capture their cute personality forever. Just picture how adorable these eight photo ideas would look in a scrapbook or in a frame on your desk at work!
1. Favorite Toy
Bring your pet’s favorite toy along to the photoshoot. Use it to capture their attention and get them to look at the camera, then get a few shots of them posing and playing with it!
2. Head Tilt
There’s just nothing cuter than a head tilt portrait. Ask your photographer to try and capture this adorable pose. You know your pet best, so if there’s a word, phrase, or sound that usually gets your pet’s attention, let your photographer know!
3. Snuggled up in their favorite spot
Get a shot of your cat or dog at their absolute coziest. If you’re shooting on location at your house, get a few photos of your pet relaxed on the couch or sprawled out in the sun. If you shoot somewhere else, bring their bed along!
4. Playing Fetch with your Pet
Get a few action shots of your puppy at play. Bring along a tennis ball for some candid shots of your dog running after it and bringing it back.
5. Nose Lick
Get a candid shot of your dog licking his face. Hint: a little dab of peanut butter works great for this!
6. Have your Pet all dressed up
What’s cuter than your pet? How about your pet wearing an adorable outfit? Dress your furry friend up in a sweater, bow-tie, or even a tutu for some irresistibly precious photos. Bonus points if you wear something that matches!
7. Pet Photo with the whole fam
Family portraits wouldn’t be complete without including the smaller, furrier members of the family. Solo shots of your pet are great, but candid shots of your family interacting with the family pet are even sweeter.
8. Paw Prints
Get an artistic shot of your dog or cat’s unique paw prints. Ask your photographer to get a detail shot of its paws or to capture the prints it leaves behind in the dirt.
Your pet is the one who will always be there for you, who loves you unconditionally, who will never let you down. Show off your love and appreciation for them by capturing and displaying their cute personalities in these fun, memorable ways.
