This past Saturday, Bark & Gold Photography had the honor of taking on the hugely popular pet photos with Santa event at Petagogy’s Shadyside location. Petagogy, an independently-owned local pet supply store that includes a second location in Greensburg, hosts what is one of–if not the the best–pet photos with Santa events in the city. It was photographed for many years by the wonderful Jenny Karlsson of Jenny Karlsson Photography; however, her own business has grown so much that she was unable to participate this year. When one of Petagogy’s owners, Heather, approached me to step into Jenny’s role, of course I jumped at the opportunity!
More than 185 dogs, cats, ferrets, and even pot-bellied pigs came out for this annual event. Each pet parent received a complimentary, low-resolution digital image of their pet(s) and had the opportunity to view and purchase a variety of holiday-themed products, including holiday cards and ornaments to magnets and gift prints available in-store during the event and through the online store.
A few pups were a little uncertain of Santa. No problem; we simply made them the star of the show in order to get their holiday portraits! (Sorry, Santa!)
Many customers–both two- and four-legged–came decked out in their most festive holiday wear! I’m sure these will make for some hilarious and adorable Christmas cards.
