Planning your Pets Birthday Party!

Updated: Jun 14, 2022

I read this quote recently,

" The amazing thing about having a dog is even though neither of you speak the same language, you develop this deep connection that you will never share with a human" (author unknown)

How true is that quote? I know with my own dogs we have a relationship that others would not understand. Each one is special in their own way.

This chocolate (gray, white) Goldendoodle (Ziggy) has had my whole heart his whole life. He turned twelve (12) years old in March. He is now 12 years and 3 months old. I am counting every day.

We have always celebrated their birthdays. My husband usually cooks hamburgers for them or some kind of meat. Its their special day. They don't know why, but they know they are special.

Being a pet photographer, of course I take photos every year. Sometimes, it is just with my cell phone and other times we go to the studio.

Planning a pet birthday photo session or a cake smash. Here are a few steps:

  • Plan where you want to photograph. In studio, your back yard, at a park or in your kitchen.

  • Are you going to have pet friends and humans at your doggy birthday party? I suggest if you are having pet friends & their humans to have the party in your backyard OR in your home. Familiar surroundings and less distractions.

  • In studio - decide on the backdrop or backdrop color. In studio (aka: cake smash) is only for one dog.
