Our pets are part of our family, so of course, we would include them in our family photos and holiday cards. Getting them to take a good photo can be difficult though, so we wanted to help you out with a few tips.
1. Minimize distractions. Our pets can have the attention span of a millennial, so it’s
important to find a space to take photos in which there are as few distractions as
possible—especially for our camera-shy pets. That way, if the photographer needs to
find a way to get your pet to look at the camera, it will also be able to do so without other
distractions getting in the way.
2. Cute outfits. Dressing up for photos can be one of the most fun parts of family photos.
Coordinate outfits for the whole family, including your fur babies, or get them a cute
holiday appropriate costume.
3. Treats. Always have treats on hand to reward good behavior.
4. Attention grabber. In addition to treats, it’s a good idea to have a good attention
grabber, like a squeaking toy to which your pet responds.
5. Have patience. If you’re trying to get a particular shot, but your pet is not cooperating,
move on to the next shot and then come back to it. When you do get the shot, remember
to give your pet a treat to reward her/his good behavior.
6. Make it a mini party. If you turn it into a fun event, your pets will enjoy it too and you
can catch some fun candid shots. This will help kick up the festive nature and add a nice
7. Short and sweet. To avoid irritating your pets with long photo sessions, try to keep
holiday photo sessions short and sweet. This will ensure a more natural and fun pose
from your pet as well.
Holiday photos should be as fun and festive for you as it is for your loved ones to receive the photos. Try these tips out for your holiday photo shoot!
