Pet Christmas Cards

The holidays are a great time to send season’s greetings with a personal touch to your friends and family. Instead of settling for generic cards, choose to customize your Christmas cards with family portraits featuring your pet. Gather everyone —including your furry friends! — together for a cozy portrait in front of the fireplace, decorating the tree with personalized Christmas ornaments, or lifting the littlest one to slip tree toppers into place. Your friends and family will love a personalized Christmas card featuring your cats, dogs, and other household pets. From animals wearing Santa hats to photos of your little ones cuddling with their favorite four-legged friend, a pet Christmas card is a fun way to add the ho-ho-ho to your holidays!

Taking Pet Photos for Your Custom Christmas Card 

Taking portraits of a dog or cat requires a gentle touch – and often at least one helpful friend. Getting great candid pictures of pets is usually easy; most pet owners have smartphones or other tablet devices that take great pictures in seconds. However, the photos that look best on pet Christmas cards are usually taken with a high-resolution camera with excellent lighting. These extra touches separate snapshots from portraits. For even better results, consider working with a professional pet photographer. Whether you choose to hire a photographer or to work with a friend, these are a few tips that you should keep in mind when trying to capture a great picture of cats of dogs for pet Christmas cards: 

  • Choose a time of day when your pet will be relaxed.
  • Have a few small treats handy to encourage cooperation.
  • Do not drag animals into an unfamiliar setting or into awkward positions; they look happiest and most natural when they are relaxing in familiar environments.
  • Consider photographic montages instead of group photos. Getting multiple animals to hold still and pose can be all but impossible. Pose animals individually and then combine the images into a single photo using editing software.
