Don’t think your dog will ever look at the camera?
I completely understand there are “unique” situations where my back of noise makers will do absolutely nothing to grab your dog’s attention! With a little bit of patience and some super smelly dog treats, I’ve got you covered!
Two of of the dogs I photographed for my recent book, Tails of the North Shore, were deaf. Louis is deaf and Quinn is deaf, blind and epileptic. We did Louis’ photo session at a beautiful scenic farm. Mom and dad brought super smelly treats, and that was our “go to” for Louis! Another way to grab his attention was movement. I would have his mom or dad do a little “jaunt” behind me top capture his attention. Isn’t he perfect? I love his dapper looking bowtie!
Meet stunning Quinn! We decided to keep Quinn safe by doing her photo session indoors. We highlighted a lovely boutique store in North Reading, MA, called Brissonte. (be sure to check it out for gifts – amazing!) Here we coud let Quinn wander on a short leash – she’s super attached to mom. This was all about patience and letting Quinn “do her thing”. Even though Quinn isn’t looking directly at the camera, we can tell she is engaged with her mom, which tells her story. Can you tell mom has her favorite treats?!
Whether your dog is hearing or sight impaired, obsessed with chasing chipmunks, or simply “stubborn” (lol!), I promise you we will be able capture beautiful images with a few tips, tricks and strategies! Are you ready to book your pet photo experience?
