Tips For Getting A Great Holiday Photo With Your Pet

Here are a few tips to get a great photo with your pet!

  • Help your pet relax- Before the photo session begins give your pet lots of attention, let them play with a favorite toy or give them a treat.
  • Get their attention- Try to get their attention by making an interesting sound (a squeaky toy often works well) but resist calling your pet's name, or they may come running to you.
  • Don’t use a flash- Use the manual settings on your camera to adjust lighting or choose to take the photos outside in the natural daylight or your pet could wind up with glaring eyes.
  • As an alternative to taking the photo yourself, many rescues and charities offer Photos with Santa at a reasonable cost.  This gives you a great photo and helps save the life of a needy pet.
