Why professional puppy pictures are important
Puppies are undeniably adorable and their pictures have the potential to go viral on social media.
But did you know that professional puppy pictures are actually very important?
For one thing, they can help new puppy parents bond with their furry friend. A professional photographer can capture all of the cute little details that make your pup unique, which the new parent can look back on and cherish for years to come.
The value of a good photographer
A good dog photographer is worth their weight in gold. We capture the innocence and playfulness of puppies which makes for some of the most heartwarming photographs.
A pup’s short life span means that puppyhood is over before we know it, so having a good photographer to document this precious time is invaluable and something the new parents will value when they purchase their forever puppy from you.
Not only does a professional dog photographer take amazing photos, but a good photographer will also be patient and gentle with your furry friend. They understand that puppies can be shy or scared and will work to make them feel comfortable so they can get the best possible shots.
If you’re looking for someone to capture your puppy’s personality in photos, who has a safe environment for the puppies to run around in, and who has plenty of experience capturing litters then get in contact with us today.
Tips for working with a professional photographer
It can be difficult to get a good photo of your pup without the help of a professional photographer. Here are some tips to make sure you get the best possible photos.
First, make sure you choose a photographer who specialises in dogs. They will know how to capture your pup’s personality and get them to cooperate for the camera.
Second, be prepared to spend some time working with the photographer, which is normally 3 to 4 hours. Your photographer will have to work at the pace of the puppies who spend most of their day sleeping.
Finally, have fun! The best photos are usually taken when everyone is enjoying themselves. So, relax and let the photographer do their job, you’ll end up with beautiful memories for your new pup parents and of course for your adverts that will go viral.
How to prepare your puppies for a photo shoot
When it comes to preparing your litter of puppies for a photo shoot, there are a few things you’ll need to do in order to make sure they’re ready.
First, you’ll want to get them used to being handled by different people. This means letting friends and family members pet them and hold them so that they’re comfortable with being touched by strangers.
Make sure mum is able to travel and is fit and strong as the pups will be more comfortable with her around. It is also great to get a photo of the pups with their mum, often new parents will want to see this picture.
Bring plenty of wipes and bags as there will be a lot of puppy mess to clear up. We will cover the floor with newspaper but trust me when I say there is a lot of mess to deal with.
Ensure your photographer has sanitised the studio before you arrive to ensure the pups do not pick up any unwanted bugs that could make them ill.
How many weeks old should a puppy be for their first photography shoot?
You’ve taken the time to breed and raise a litter of puppies and now you want to find them all good homes. You also want to make sure you get the best possible price for each puppy, and professional photographs are a great way to do that.
But what makes a good photo for a for-sale advert? And how can you make sure your puppies look their best?
A dog’s puppyhood is a special time, full of growth and discovery. And while every pup is different, professional photographers generally agree that 6 weeks is the ideal age to get your new litter photographed.
At 4 weeks old, pups are still very young so their full nature and expressions haven’t fully developed. Their eyesight, hearing and smell are still developing, but they are able to start experiencing the world around them. A professional photographer can help capture these special moments but our recommendation is still to have your litter photographed at 6 weeks.
Puppies typically spend the first four to six weeks of their lives with their mother and litter mates. During this time, they learn how to play and become much more vocal. They also begin to develop a sense of individuality.
At this age, puppies are still small enough to be cute and cuddly, but they’re also old enough to be relatively calm and cooperative (most of the time!). Plus, they’re not yet fully grown, so you can capture those adorable baby features that will change so quickly in the coming months.
If you’ve been thinking about having your puppy professionally photographed, 6 weeks is the perfect time to do it. Contact us today to book a session – you and your new pup parents will treasure these memories for years to come!
