An Australian couple, fed up with being asked when they’d finally have children, decided to take some of the sting out of the question.
No Baby, No Problem
Australian photographer, Elisha Minnette joined her married friend, Abby and Matt when they went to pick out a new puppy.
On the ride over, Abby and Matt complained about how annoyed, and irritated, they are at being constantly asked when they’d have children.
Their parents were on the hunt for grandkids.
Since the couple has no plans to have a baby, the did the next best thing – the adopted a puppy.
The couple teamed up with Minnette to create a potshot that would mock the ubiquitous “newborn” or “baby” photo shoot.
They posed with their puppy in most of the classic poses.
Tips For Having Great Photo Shoots With Your Dog
If you’d like to have a “baby” photo shoot with your dog, or you just want to get some great, high-quality professional pictures, there are a few ways to get the best pictures out of your dog.
Walk Them First – walking helps drain excess energy. A tired dog will sit much more calmly for pictures than a high-energy, wired dog
Take Candid Shots of Them Playing – Some dogs are freaked out by cameras. If you are doing a professional shoot, the photographer will have a big camera with an extended sense. This obscures the person’s face, which makes some dogs uneasy.
Having some non-posed pictures taken while your pup is playing is a great way to help the feel comfortable with the idea of a camera.
Hire A Pro That Loves Dogs
Working with children and families is different than working with dogs. Finding a professional photographer that loves dogs, and is patient and gentle with them will make for a much more pleasurable shoot for you and your dog.
Pose With Them – Even if it’s just for a few photos, posing with your dog will make them feel much more comfortable.
