Pet Portraits are Unique Mother’s Day Gifts

Pet portraits make great gifts no matter what the occasion.  Mother’s Day is coming up and if you know someone who adores their pet, this might be the perfect gift!

I recently did 3 pet / family photo sessions that were gifts of some sort.  One was a Christmas gift, one was an anniversary present, and one was a “present” for the whole family in the name of a baby announcement!

Anniversary Present:

This shoot was for my cousin who wanted to surprise her husband with photos of their puppy dogs: Olivia (left) and Ollie (right).  We shot these in their home in Durham while Mark was away for work.  She printed them on metal, which looks fantastic on the wall.  They are now expecting their first child, so I’m sure that these photos will go into a growing archive of family photos!

Baby Announcement:

This shoot is for a couple who are expecting their first child.  Brianna is my chiropractor and we are in the same networking group.  I had to keep this a secret for a full month while we planned this shoot, which was somewhat nerve-wracking!  I managed to keep from accidentally spilling the beans and Brianna was able to share her special news on Facebook in style!

Christmas Present:

Around Christmas time, I got a call from a lady who found my pet portfolio on google.  She was interested in purchasing a gift certificate for her sister, who adores her little Bijon, Darcy.  I had SO much fun with this shoot because Sarah (my client) had so much energy and so many props.  We shot in my home studio in Apex and I barely had to give her any direction because she came up with cute ideas on her own!  She brought her sweet mom along and she was a great helper as well as a great subject.
