5 Tips to Take Perfect Pet Photos for Christmas

As the holiday season approaches, there are going to be many moments where you'll want to take pictures with your pet. Of course, if you've ever tried to take a staged photo of your pet you've probably realized that it can be a bit challenging. Here at The PetCot Company, there's nothing we love more than photos of your favorite furry friend, so we've got a few tips to help make them easier to capture.

Keep Distractions to a Minimum

To get the best photos of your furry friend, you'll want to keep distractions from being, well, distracting. Find a place to take photos where you pet won't have to work extremely hard on concentrating. Places like the park, around busy roads or events will take away from their focus, making it harder to achieve the photos you want and add stress to the activity.

Try Lifestyle Photos

While a nice posed photo is great every once in a while, try some lifestyle shots, too! Show off your furry friends personality, and the way they interact with you, your children or other pets. It will bring a smile to your face when you look back at the photos and see your pet romping through the leaves!

Watch the Lighting

You'll want to beware of using flash when taking your pets photos. Have you ever used it and noticed they get the green eyed "demon" look? This is caused by the flash, and can be eliminated when you just use the right lighting. Try taking them outside or posing them by a window to help get natural light and show off those pretty eyes!

Grab Their Attention - Appropriately

With many pets, if you call their name to get their attention, they end up bounding towards you - which isn't convenient when you have them posed for their photo. Try using a toy that squeaks or clapping your hands to get their attention without making it sound like you want them to "come."

Keep it Short and Sweet

Finally, keep it short and don't wear your furry friend out too much. It's hard enough for humans to sit still for a photo for long periods of time, much less your pet. Don't forget to be patient, as well. While your pet loves to please you, they don't always know exactly what you want. When they aren't cooperating they could just be feeding off of your anxiety to make everything work. Try getting in the photos, rolling around with your pet, and realize that they will be perfect no matter what.

Christmas Time!

While you're making plans for Christmas cards, don't forget to start planning your pet's Christmas wish list! We're sure if you asked them, a raised pet bed would be at the top of the list!
