Including Pets in Newborn Photos at Home

Your fur babies are often your first babies. 

I get asked often if pets can be included in newborn photos and the answer if always yes.  During our booking process, we talk about your pet’s age, personality and how comfortable they are around the new baby.  

If the introduction between your newborn and your animal has gone smoothly and you feel confident including them in our session, we can bring them into the photographs in a variety of ways.  Comfy couch time, playing in the backyard or even a sit and pose portrait would be the perfect way to get all your babies photographed together 

Below is one recent example of an at home newborn session in Bucks County, where the young puppy wanted to jump, lick and play with Mom and Dad.  Here is another family who wanted to included their two golden retrievers into their newborn photos at home.
