Have a puppy that you’re thinking of getting photographed? When is the right time? Well we’ve done puppies pretty early in life—think between 6 and 8 weeks old. They are cute little balls of fur at that age and they love to sleep. We did 9 bloodhound puppies for a breeder—18 pound puppies—and had to work pretty fast because like newborn babies they like to sleep a lot!
Ideally between 2-4 months is great for puppy pictures. You can do earlier and get some cute sleepy shots but to have a puppy “pose” you need a little older. And having some basic commands is very helpful. The couple above wanted a “family” portrait as well as individual shots of their new English Pointer puppy. This is great as I recommend at least at some point in a dogs life to get a great shot ofd family with their pet—whether it’s one person or the whole family. It’s a great way to remember all the great times you had with your furry friend.Read More
