Being a pet photographer is one of the best parts of my photography business. Not only do I get to meet so many handsome and sweet clients like Buddy, but also their families. I love photographing the special relationships humans form with their animal friends. I might even go as far to say it’s my life’s purpose. Also, I’m a huge proponent of kids having a pet. Not only have studies shown that kids with pets are healthier, but the unconditional love offered by a pet is like nothing else they’ll experience in this life. And, considering we’ve just seemed to cross the finish line with COVID, I think kids need even more love and understanding. Navigating online school and the pressures that come from it can be extremely stressful for kids, and a pet can help them succeed.
When COVID shut our world down, I had a handful of clients scheduled. And now, a year later, I’m just now able to get them all in front of my camera. During the pandemic, I erred on the side of caution. I had so many clients who worried about their photo sessions and I just kept reassuring them that one day we’d be able to capture them. And hopefully, our world would return to normal. But, boy, was I wrong. (About the world being ‘normal’)
I don’t think we’ll ever get back to what we used to consider ‘normal’. Do you?
But I digress, let’s talk more about the best job in the world as a Pet Photographer 🐶 I loved spending time with Buddy, who is a rescue pup living in Flagstaff and Phoenix with his human brother Oliver. While his parents don’t know his breed, I do see a little Rhodesian Ridgeback in his ears, stance and color.
Buddy romped in the Coconino Forest as we snapped photos in between his antics. He’s a funny pup and I just can’t wait to see what this goofy puppy looks like next year.
Thank you for the adventure guys! I can’t wait to see you next year!
I’d love to photograph your family, human and pets! When you’re ready, contact me and I’ll tell you all about our options for a stress free photography session.
