The Furriest Detail In A Successful Photo Session

Have you ever wondered what accessory would make your engagement photo session, maternity pictures, even your entire wedding all that much more special? Well, look no further because we have your answer right here. Including pets in human photo sessions is a trend that’s growing rapidly, and this may sound crazy… but you need a canine.

A pooch! A mutt! A pupper! Scientifically speaking, you need a doggo. Not just any pooch though, you need the most adorable, lovable, and loyal fluff ball you can find, and to get even more specific, this pooch needs to be your own. We do not by any means condone the theft of doggos…unless it’s for a ride in the car. In that case, we’ll let it slide as long as said doggo is returned safely.

It’s not a surprising thing when the bride and groom-to-be want specific members of their family to be present for certain photo opportunities, as these photos are to be treasured for generations to come. However, looking at our current trends, more and more people are reaching for a much furrier arm, in most cases at least, than their great uncle Richard’s. Now, don’t ask us to back up this claim, as our data analyst is currently on an extended leave of absence until he catches that squirrel we never saw, and honestly, we have no idea how long this could take him to accomplish. It’s been five months already.

Dogs are great in photo sessions for a multitude of reasons. To name a few: their tongues almost always look cuter than our own, they’re really fashionable (wearing only the most current season’s furs), they don’t have any bad angles, and they look at their humans with the entire world in their big saucer eyes. Plus, babies and dogs go together like peanut butter and jelly.Dog snuggles baby for newborn portrait | Pets In Human Photo SessionGetting your dog to pose can be difficult at times, so we advise you to bring plenty of dog biscuits with you (or an entire steak) as bribery to last the extent of the photo session. At From The Hip Photo, we fully understand the trend of including pets in human photo sessions, and we love when our clients want to incorporate their own Fido into their session. Furry friends are part of the family and, we FULLY support it, even if your dog looks A LOT like a cat. Groom holds French Bulldog wearing a bowtie | Pets In Human Photo Session  Engagement photo with dog | Pets In Human Photo Session Wedding Photo with Dachshund | Pets In Human Photo SessionBaby with two dogs | Pets In Human Photo Session
