Maternity Photos Edmonton | Maternity Session with Pets

If you’re looking for Maternity Photos in Edmonton, check out this beautiful in-studio session with their sweet dog Lily.

If you’ve wondered whether you can include your fur baby in your maternity photos, the answer is yes! After all, your dog is part of the family too!

However, there are a few things you should consider before your session to help it run smoothly.

Bring along a helper

It’s not a good idea to come alone with your pup to your session. Bring along your partner or if they aren’t available, have someone with you to help look after your pup so that you can also have some solo photos captured.

Have some treats and water handy

I give this advice for parents bringing in their little ones and the same goes for pets. We want them to be happy and comfortable. So bringing along some of their favorite treats for good behavior as well as water to keep them hydrated, will help your session run smoothly.

Consider a Leash

You know your pup better than anyone. If they are a runner or are super curious, you may want to have them on a leash especially for outdoor photos. If that is the case, you will want to have a leash or harness that will compliment the outfits you are wearing. For instance, in these photos, we wouldn’t want Lily in a bright colored leash or it would really stand out.

Including your pets can be challenging but it’s very similar to bringing your toddler along to the session. They are curious, excited and love to be around their parents. If you come prepared, your session will be absolutely beautiful.

In this session, Lily was so sweet and curious. She wanted to explore but also listened very well. When she wasn’t in the photo, she was right beside me watching her mom and dad.
