Hello Jade and Oak readers! I’m super excited to get to hang out with you all today! My name is Madison and I blog over at The Wetherills Say I Do, a faith based lifestyle blog where I post everything from recipes to blogging tips!
We’ve had our sweet pup for over a year now. Before we adopted her, I used to joke about how many photos I would take of our kids someday and how they’d probably hate me for it. Well, now that we’ve had Azi for over a year, I can definitely say that was an understatement. In a year’s time, I’ve taken over 1000 photos of our dog. I guess that makes me a crazy dog lady?
I’ve learned a few things, 1000 photos later and I’d love to share some tips on getting great pictures of your pet.
When you’re trying to take semi-staged photos of your pets, you’ll want to plan ahead. There will always be those funny moments where you just snap a picture on your phone, but for times when you want great photos of your pet, make sure you plan ahead for a time and place. Even if it’s just in your house, setting aside a time will be a great stress reliever.
Have someone help
Tire them out
If you have a puppy, you will most definitely want to get your pup tired out before trying to make him or her sit still! Even an older dog will listen and focus better when they are already tired from playing or walking in the neighborhood.
Have treats handy!
Find the best lighting
