Are you wondering whether hiring a pet photographer is a worthwhile investment? Often potential clients’ first thought is: “what? A photo shoot with my pet? That’s a thing?!” Clients also worry that visitors will think they are silly for having framed portraits of their fur baby. They may be unaware of the many reasons to invest in a pet photography session.
To answer your questions: YES it IS worth the investment and NO, It is not silly! You’ll go from being on the fence to racing to book your pet photography session!
Here are nine reasons to invest in a pet photography session.
1. Your pets’ gifts deserve to be celebrated.
Your fur baby has given you so many gifts throughout your time together. A portrait session is a great way to honor these gifts as a way to celebrate the love between your fur baby and your family members.
2. Pets are important members of your family.
Pets are important. Many people have portraits of prominent family members on display in their home. Your pet is part of your family; portraits should be also be displayed.
3. You are creating a legacy.
Our pet’s time on Earth is limited. Therefore, a portrait session is a perfect way to share your pets’ gifts with future generations. Every time you walk past the photo you will feel a rush of the positive feelings and love that you shared with your fur baby.
4. You will learn more about your pet.
Another reason to invest in a pet portrait session is that you will see your pet in a new light. So many of my clients are nervous that their pets won’t pose or look at the camera. After viewing the images they are often pleasantly surprised that their pet is a natural-born cover model and they never knew it!
5. You value custom artwork displayed in your home.
You value custom artwork displayed in your home. Too often digital files get lost in a sea of files on your hard drive! Clients love letting me do the heavy lifting of printing products. They just sit back and their artwork is hand-delivered without them having to lift a finger! Learn more about the artwork offered by Paws Fur Joy Photography HERE.
6. You are capturing a unique moment in your personal history.
There is nothing quite like a portrait session to perfectly capture a special moment in your relationship with your fur baby. This is especially true if you have more than one photo shoot throughout your fur baby’s life!
7. It’s Fun!
Having a portrait session with your dog is a fun bonding experience! Don’t you just love how dogs are fully in the present moment? They don’t worry about posing just right, if their hair it out of place, or if they look awkward. You’ll love how well your portraits convey the fun spirit of the session!
8. Pet photographers can ensure your fur baby has a great experience!
Investing in a photographer who specializes only in pets will ensure that your fur baby has a fun, comfortable, and safe experience! Photographers specializing in weddings, portraits, and family photography may not have as much experience with the techniques to fully capture your fur baby’s personality.
9. A pet portrait session can benefit your pet-related business!
If you have a pet-related business you would definitely benefit from hiring a pet photographer who can showcase your products and services. Here is a great resource explaining the benefit of lifestyle photography vs. product photography for businesses. Check it out HERE.
