Have a pet? Surely your pet has a spot in your holiday cards. In my case, for the past 12 years, my holiday cards were simply my dog Sugar. Many of my family and friends look forward to receiving Sugar’s Holiday Pet Cards.
I am not a professional photographer but I’ve managed to take good holiday pet cards of Sugar. Here are some helpful tips that I’ve shared on a previous post.
5 Tips of Taking Holiday Pet Photos
1) Select a Simple Holiday Theme.
2) Prepare and PLAN for the right time. It’s not a good idea to schedule a photo shoot when your pet is sleepy, tired and/or hungry, A relaxed and well fed pet is the best time.
3) Keep the background simple. Keep in mind that main subject is your pet.
4) Pay attention to the lighting. Natural light is the best, which means an outdoor photo shoot is ideal.
5) Make it FUN and enjoy the time you spend with your pet.
Hire A Photographer For Your Holiday Pet Cards
Another easy option, which I’m considering this year, is to Hire A Photographer.
WHY? Hiring a professional photographer can take your ideas and turn them into photographs that you will want to see more than just on a holiday card. Also as an added bonus, you and your family can be part of the photo shoot.
I’ve hired a photographer before and it was not easy. There are tons of photographers out there. Finding the one that suits your ideas for a family and pet photo can be frustrating. Photographer Central offers a solution and eases the requirement for hiring a professional photographer.
