We can all agree that all pet photos are great. We’re up for looking through pet albums at any time!
Still, some pictures stand out because they do a better job of capturing the pet’s personality than others. This article will help pet parents accomplish exactly that just in time for Halloween and costume season.
Let’s work on bringing out your pet dog’s best side for photography so that your personal album becomes even more spectacular!
Get Your Pet to Focus on the Camera
A pet’s personality can shine through in the way they look at you. Some pets have steely gazes reminiscent of supermodels while others have goofy looks that never fail to draw laughs. You cannot go wrong with capturing either one of those looks.
In order to capture that unique expression, you need your pet to focus squarely on the camera. Shutterstock recommends taping a treat to your camera or using a toy to draw your pet’s undivided attention.
Keep Your Pet Engaged by Providing Treats
Pets can get distracted pretty quickly. If you’re aiming to fill your memory card with hundreds of pet pictures, you’ll need to get your model to actively engage in the photo shoot.
You can encourage your pet to participate in the proceedings by offering some treats. Whenever you start to see your pet getting bored, approach him/her with a treat and some belly rubs. They’ll be sure to perk up and you can get right back to taking those beautiful pictures.
“Some pets respond better to a squeaky toy, funny noises, or their favorite ball or toy. If one doesn’t work, keep trying until you find one that works!” Julie Austin, Evening Magazine’s Best Pet Photographer
Take Photos from Every Angle
If this is the first time you’re having your pet take part in a photo shoot, you probably don’t know which angle works best for him/her. Don’t stress out about that.
All you have to do is take pictures of your pet from different angles. You’re sure to end up with terrific photos by switching things up that way! Plus, your photo album will look more interesting if it features that kind of variety.

You know all about your pet’s wonderful personality because you spend a lot of time with him/her. Show everyone else what they’re missing by capturing your pet’s good side with your photography skills!
On the other hand, sometimes trying to corral your pet for a photo can be stressful. If you want a professional to capture those special memories, contact Julie Austin. She will capture your pet’s wild, wonderful, playful, and even sometimes crazy, unconditional love.
