Including Pets in Newborn Photos

One of the many benefits of doing a newborn session at home is being able to include your pets in the photos. I love when clients include their pet in their session… Your fur babies were your first babies so it’s always special to include them!

Here’s a look at a few recent sessions where the family’s pet was included in the session.

A family photo where everyone (including the dog!) is looking at the camera is always a win!

This pup was just hanging out in the room watching for most of the session and finally decided she wanted to be included in a couple of pictures.

When there are TWO dogs things can get a little crazy!

I’ve found that most of my clients are dog people, but every now and then I have clients that have cats!

  1. I love when families bring their dogs, too! I love the one you shared with both dogs looking at their newest sibling: so sweet. Great work as always!

  2. I love including pets in newborn sessions. They are such a special part of the family, often the first babies and these pictures are such wonderful memories!
