If you are planning on bringing a pet to your session, I am all for it! Since my sessions are all shot outside, it gives us a great opportunity to include them. They are a part of your family too! I love furry friends and am always pleased to add them into your sessions! Sometimes they can get hyper or jumpy, but we can make it work. Here are some things you should remember to bring to ensure everything goes smoothly:
- A leash. This will help you keep your pet near to you and where you want him or her for photos. (They aren’t just for dogs, you know. I've seen cats with leashes too!)
- A friend. Having someone come with you specifically to take care of your pet is ideal, but not a requirement. This will help so that your pet is not running around all over the place or alone in the car, should you wish to take some photos without them.
- Treats. Treats are great bribery for your animal. It will help keep your pet still and focused on the camera. It's so funny how bribery works with dogs/cats and kids.
- A favorite toy. The noisier the better. This is also a great tool to help keep your pet’s attention on me. We can also use it for a fun game and get some fun interaction shots.
