5 Tips for Pet Photography Sessions at Garden of The Gods | Colorado Springs

Pet photography is a great way to capture your furry loved ones in a moment in time. Photos are furrrrr-ever, and, when taken with a fitting environment, can showcase your fur baby’s personality! Here are 5 tips for your next pet photography session.


  1. Trim their nails and/or fur. Nothing is worse than looking back at photos and wishing you remembered to bring them to the groomers ahead of time!

  2. Wipe their eyes. If your dog is prone to runny eyes, be sure to wipe their face before the shoot for a tip-top appearance!

  3. Bring their favorite toy and/or treats. If you’re bringing treats, I recommend training treats! They’re quick for your pooch to eat and you can give more throughout the session. Bringing a rope or ball can create some great action shots of playing tug or chasing the ball.

  4. Be ready to get in the photo frame. Pets wouldn’t be pets without their people! Prepare to be in the photos with your pet, such as holding them, petting them, or playing with them.

  5. Prop it up! Bows/bow ties, coats, jumpers, and bandanas can spruce up the shot. Don’t worry- the pet doesn’t have to wear accessories the entire time, but they can provide some funny and interesting pictures! Time will be allotted for a healthy mix of prop and non-prop portraits.
