A few weeks ago, while exhibiting at a local pet event, I had a young woman come up to my table and exclaim, “This is great! I’ve always wanted to do this for my dog, but I thought people would think that’s weird. Is that weird?” I answered that I wasn’t sure what part of having photos of the ones we love is weird. And then I saw the light bulb go off.
Maybe I’m biased, (after all, I do have a large wall grouping of our dog Hunter hanging in our dining room), but when I hear clients tell me things like, “I’ve tolerated countless pictures of friends with their fancy newborn and kid photo shoots and have wanted to do this with my pups for a while now,” I know that booking a professional photography session for your dog isn’t all that crazy. (And even if it was, do you really care?)
We book sessions for our families, children, and newborns solely for the joy of capturing those special moments that go by so quickly. The time with our four-legged family members is no different. Just as your little ones won’t stay little forever, either will your puppy. Dogs are very much an important part of your family, and family in any form should be celebrated.
If you would like to book a Bark & Gold Photography session for your pet, click here or give me a call at 724-913-BARK (2275). For more information on Bark & Gold Photography sessions, visit “Your Session” in the menu.
