Feb 10, 2020 | By: AP Senior Portraits
Getting your pet’s attention is key. Just as you may jump up and down to get your toddler to laugh or smile there are things we can do to get your pet’s attention. Calling their name or making a noise so they look in the direction of the camera often does the trick. It can also be helpful to bring a friend or family member who knows your pet and isn’t going to be part of the session. An extra set of hands can be invaluable in helping to get your pet’s attention and it’s helpful to have someone to keep an eye on your pet if you want pictures with just your human family. In fact, very often, it’s a good idea to start with pictures that include the pet and then have the pet leave. Finally, don’t be afraid to resort to bribery! Let’s face it, who isn’t motivated by a treat? Furry family members are no exception. Make sure to bring plenty of treats to bribe, I mean help them focus.
