5 Reasons To Have An In-Home Pet Photo Shoot

Updated: Jan 8, 2020



I am sure you've heard the famous saying "Home is where the heart is". When it comes to your day-to-day life you share at home with your family and fur-baby, this couldn't be more true!


Most people might assume pet photography has to take place in a photographer's studio or out and about on location, such as local parks or beaches but there's an emerging trend in pet portraiture, to capture the unique personality of your pet at home and the life you share together there.


Pets are after all members of the family and lifestyle photography suits this perfectly.


Here are our 5 reasons why you should consider booking an in-home lifestyle pet and family photo shoot with Paw & Pose Photography.





1. Your pet is most relaxed at home


It's no secret that most dogs feel more secure and relaxed when in their home surroundings.

For dogs that can get nervous or stressed from being outdoors or the possibility of around other dogs, in home photo shoots are perfect for capturing them at their happiest and most comfortable.


At home shoots are also a wonderful option for when they are small puppies and not allowed outside for walks yet and you can start documenting their life from an early age.

It's also a popular choice for older dogs, who may not be able to walk as far anymore and just prefer to take life a bit slower at home (and who can blame them)?!




2. Home is where your pet's personality can really shine through


Because your dog is probably most relaxed at home, they'll be happy to go about their day as normal with all their adorable little personality traits on show.


Is your a dog a real couch potato? Or how about a snuggle bug? Maybe super playful with their toys? At in-home lifestyle photo shoots capture a true reflection of your pet’s personality, where they feel free to be their sweet or sassy selves!

3. Home reflects yours and your pets inner world.


Your home is an expression of your personality, your life and your joys.


It's where your everyday rituals with your dog and/or family take place. Weekend mornings spent relaxing in bed, your favourite spot on the sofa to snuggle up and watch films together.

Lifestyle pet photo sessions capture all of these small but very important moments and enable you to have photographs to enjoy and cherish for many years to come.




4. Come rain or shine, your shoot will go ahead


A very convenient aspect of in-home pet photo shoots is that they aren’t weather-dependant like outdoor shoots.

You have the choice to stay cosy and comfy at home, and let me the photographer, come to you no matter the weather!






5. Home is where YOU are most comfortable too


Just like our furry friends, us humans are most relaxed and ourselves at home. In-home photo sessions give you the opportunity to interact with your dog just how you would any other day, authentically capturing the special bond you share.

The idea of a photographer coming into your personal space may take a bit of getting used to at first, but you’d be surprised at how naturally everything flows on the day and how much fun it is :)



Home is your happy place, your sacred space, that holds your story. It’s where memories with your best friend are made.
