If you are planning to join in the fun and have some photos taken with your pet, read my simple tips to get you looking your best!


Darker clothing helps to blend the bodies with the background so that the faces are the most important part of the photograph. Dark colours also tend to slenderise.


BUT.... be aware of hair! If your pet tends to shed a lot, black may not be the best option for your photo.

Tone down bright colours Bright colours attract attention away from the face and may be reflective. Avoid wearing red, bright pink, bright green etc.


When choosing lighter colours, stick to pastels. Pale yellow and pale blue work well, especially with jeans or khaki pants. 

Light clothing can look beautifully fresh. If you are worried about not appearing slender then it is safer to avoid white. White can look beautifully simple and fresh. White shirts and/or blouses under a dark jacket are perfect.

Logos and bold patterns

Avoid logos, bold prints and heavy patterns. They can be distracting, I want to focus on your faces!

Long-sleeved shirts and long pants are highly recommended. When arms and legs are exposed to the camera there will be more flesh in the photograph in those areas than on the face, itself. This can be a distraction.

Glasses May be worn.

Hair Take some time to give your hairstyle some love for your session. Consider how you might wear your hair to a nice dinner or party. Not too formal, but still feels a little fancier than every day.

Makeup If you are not a makeup wearer, consider a tinted moisturiser, mascara/eyeliner and some tinted lip balm. This will give you a feminine look without you feeling like you have a painted face. If you love your makeup, go to town. You know how you look best!

False Eyelashes Please avoid if possible as they "hood" your eyes making it difficult to get a beautiful, sparkly catchlight in your eyes
