Some of my favorite photos of my pets are from when I was a child and they were still little, adorable puffballs in the form of kittens. My parents gave my sister and I kittens when we were still in preschool, and during that Christmas, they captured quite a few candid snapshots of us on those disposable cameras that had to be taken to the local film store to be developed.
While I ended up taking quite a few photos of my childhood pets over the years, most of them showcase my favorite furry friends in their adult years as full-grown animals. While it still captured some of my favorite moments (like knocking over a Christmas tree or an ill-fated adventure into a full kitchen sink), none of those photos show the adorable cuteness that baby animals are known for. As new pets are only babies for a short period of their lifespan, if you want to be able to look back on those few bonding months, getting good photos of your new furry friend is important.
While you can always take your own photos, I also offer pet photography in Iowa. I’m in love with animals – especially baby animals – and I’m happy to help you capture the joy and bond that you have with your pets.
Last week, my parents adopted a new puppy – and of course, I couldn’t wait to take my DSLR over to steal some captured moments of puppy life. Enjoy!
