Tips on photographing people and their pets

Sep 26, 2018

Aris Affairs Photography is your professional family photographer in Prescott making art out of life.Pets are members of the family! So when we think of a family photo, we don’t want to leave out our four-legged family members. Aris Affairs Photography, your family photographer in Prescott, offers tips on photographing people and their pets.

Yes, our pets are family members, but they just seem to refuse to sit still for a photo session. They turn into a blur on camera. Here are some tips on getting great pictures of people with their pets:

  • The photographer should know the pet. When taking a portrait of you with your pet, knowing your subject goes a long way.
  • What might make the pet sit still? 
  • How can you get the pet to look into the camera?
  • What unique personality traits might you be able to capture on camera?
     
  • Would you like to capture a mischievous moment or a more obedient image of the pet? 

If you are having a professional photographer take a portrait of your pet, talk with the photographer ahead of time to convey an understanding of the pet’s temperament and plan accordingly.

Use treats and toys. The trickiest most difficult part of animal photography may be that pets don’t understand posing instructions like other subject matter. Tasty treats and a few favorite toys can go a long way in getting pets to remain still or look in a certain direction. Even untrained pets will often turn their heads towards the smell of that special treat! And, realize that pets do not need to be perfectly still for a professional photographer to capture great photos!

Shoot from their eye level, not your own.

Pet portraits are all about the eyes. Usually, planning the shoot to get down on the animal’s eye level will create more personal pet pictures.  This will bring out the unique personality of your pet and draw out a more intimate perspective. If you shoot from your own eye level, the pet will look smaller and it will be harder to get your pet’s eyes into the shot.

Aris Affairs Photography, your family photographer in Prescott, can help you capture great photographs of people and their pets. To schedule a photo shoot with your pet, book an appointment today by calling us at 928-642-4049.
