Tips for Including Your Dog in Your Family Photos
Your furry companions are already a part of your family, so it only makes sense to feature them in as many of your family photos as possible. Whether it’s a Family portrait, a Children or a Newborn session, dogs really bring something extra special to the shot.
It can, however, be slightly trickier to get your dogs to cooperate long enough for you to get a few good shots, so here are a few tips that will definitely help for future photo sessions:
- Tire them out. A tired dog makes for the best photo subject as he won’t be wiggling around and wanting to play. Have some fun with your furry friend an hour before your shoot so that he’ll be more willing to sit still for the camera.
- There’s no perfect shot. While you may see some perfect photos of families and their pets online, those shots are rare. It’s important to embrace imperfection when it comes to taking photos with your pets and to rather enjoy the candid moments that will take place during the shoot.
- Use your time wisely. When it comes to taking pictures of your dogs at home, you never quite know what’s going to happen so if you get a period of calm, use it to take some photos as their next burst of energy might be just around the corner.
Some of your best memories are made with your four-legged friends so take every chance you can get to include them in your family photos.
