Ridge Meadows Pet Photographer
We work in short increments to keep your pet interested. We think of your pet as a toddler, and you'll have a good idea of how long we can keep its attention span. By taking breaks and only shooting a couple of photos at a time, we have a happier, more engaged pet for the photo shoot.
If we have another person nearby, it might be easier if they use the toy to play with the pet while we capture pictures.
Tug-of-war toys work great for dogs, and string-type toys work well for cats, as we can entice them to come over. Any toy that keeps the family pet mostly in the same place should be fine.
Balls don't work as well, unless someone is throwing a ball in your direction. Otherwise, the animal will be running away from us.
Your pets are the cutest, and of course you want photos of them to post online or just have around the house! However, whether they stay still or bounce around, pets are a tricky subject for photography. You have to work with the pet to get them to look at the camera, and you have to be quick when you're taking photos!
