You’ll want to make sure you pick the sweetest pictures to showcase just how special he or she is. Let their personality come through and dictate the story of the book. Here are 16 of our favorite pet photo album ideas to get you started.

1. Meet Our Pet

There is always much excitement when we bring a new pet into our lives, whether it is a cute little hedgehog or an adorable turtle. Capture the moment you bring the new critter home, take photos of him with every single member of the family and include your other pets.

Putting together a cute pet photo album for the newcomer should be a piece of cake. As a special gift, take a few pictures featured in your new photo album to create a personalized notebook featuring the new pet for every human member of the house.

2. Funny Pet Quotes

Some of our pets are so much fun, skipping and hopping their way into our hearts. How about showing off their best moments with special quotes? Try “somebunny loves me” with a shot of your sweet little rabbit enjoying their favorite treat. You can also get a custom made photo cube to keep admiring your precious pet from your desk.

3. Quirky Cat Shenanigans

Cats are playful, loving and mischievous. Plus they get into the cutest kind of trouble. Document your cat’s every mood with a cat photo album that speaks to their unique quirks. Capture them while playing with their favorite wand or while they sleep in everything but their bed.

You can even hold a very special photo session with a personalized pet collar and snuggly custom-made photo blanket.

4. Doggies In Costumes

The pictures of your dog in costumes are priceless. And you probably have accumulated quite the collection throughout the years. Gather them all to create the ultimate dog photo album. Reward your dog for being such a good sport with their favorite treat and a custom-made dog leash.

5. Forever In Our Hearts

The passing of a loving pet is one of the hardest things to deal with for every animal lover, their absence can leave a big void in our hearts. Keep their memory alive by creating a memory book that tells the story of how they came and what they brought into your life — this is something that can be very cathartic in processing this loss.

Aside from the album, create a personalized calendar featuring your favorite pictures so you have something to remember them with each month of the year.

6. Pet Adventures & More

If your house is made up of a wide array of pets, then that means there must be many adventures to showcase — the beach, the mountains or the local park. A pet photo album is ideal for this scenario, each pet can take a page, plus you can highlight what makes each one special.

Pick your top shots and create a hanging canvas print art or mix it up with a collage poster of the humans in the family members to complete the story.
