HOLIDAY DOG PHOTO IDEAS

A few photography hints from our dog photo experts (and even more here):

  • Avoid any surprises. Give your pet some time to get comfortable with the camera, props and holiday costumes before the photo shoot.
  • Get your bribe on. Have lots of treats on deck, squeaky and noisy toysfeathers on strings—whatever it takes to get your dog to look at you and the camera. (Here are some great dog treats.)
  • Let’s Get Crazy! Also be ready to make silly noises that get your dog’s attention.
  • Be Patient. This may take a while as you may have to take approximately a gazillion photos to get the perfect one.
