DSLR Tips: Pet Portrait Photography

We all love our pets. We all tend to love our pets unconditionally and beyond reason. And they love us back unconditionally. They bring us joy, they amuse and entertain us, they comfort us and are always there for us. We play with them, ply them with toys, and photograph them incessantly. We enjoy looking at the photos we snap of our pets almost as much as we enjoy looking at them.

A lovely way to honor and commemorate our pet is to have an artist create a custom portrait of them. We all have dozens of photos of our furry friends that we have taken over time, and any one of them can be transformed by an artist into a unique and very personal work of art to hang in our home. That shot you have always liked so much of Duke in mid air catching his favorite frisbee; the photo of Tiger, deep in kitten mischief, that you managed to capture in spite of her speed;  these priceless moments all make for wonderful art portraits.

A pet portrait is something special. It is a work of art. It portrays a pet with a depth and uniqueness that can surpass what a photograph shows. A work of pet portraiture is a fun thing to give to oneself, but it becomes an excellent gift idea to surprise someone else with.  If you are searching for that super special gift to give someone, the gift that they would never be expecting, the gift that they will cherish forever – this is it. A portrait immortalizing their beloved pet is a surefire winner.

For a special occasion, for a gift giving occasion, or for no reason other than that we love them beyond reason, think about having a work of portrait art created that captures your pet’s personality and proudly displays it for all to see and enjoy. After all, they are family.
