Pet and Resident Photo-Shoot

This special event that involves both residents and their pets! The event will show resident pet-lovers you care and create a bonding opportunity among the community pets (and owners!)


Photography Arrangements

You'll need an experienced pet photographer who knows how to capture pets beautifully. We also suggest making it an outdoor, morning, event as the natural lighting will make the photos naturally artistic. (Outdoors will also make it easier to clean up!)


Use Props

Using props can take the photo-shoot fun to another level. It will make the photo-shoot more fun and lively. Props can include items like hats, bow-ties, glasses, sunshades, or hankies. Ask your photographer what types of things might be best to keep on hand.

***TIP*** Depending on what time of year you plan this event, you may also want to add other holiday-themed or seasonal props as well!


Ask the Residents to Come with Dressed-Up Pets

For some added fun, ask the residents to come up with dressed up pets. Or even to dress like their pets!

***BONUS*** This could also be made into a competition for best-dressed pets. You can arrange a few small prizes for the winners. For example, gift certificates, toys, or new collars for dogs and cats.


Make Them Pose!

Photo shoots are most amusing when you pose, and almost every animal loves to ham for the camera. Each pet has their own quirks, so ask the residents to bring out their pets’ comical sides as they pose for photographs together. These light and carefree moments are the most memorable.

Treats and Snacks

To make the event comfortable and cheerful, offer snacks for the residents as well as their pets.

Treats for the animals is a must, as are some water dishes for thirsty animals. Make separate sections for dogs, cats, and birds. Add treats for everyone to munch on while they wait for their turn to get their photos taken.

For residents, refreshments can include items like coffee, sandwiches, and cookies. 


Pet of the Day Award

One last suggestion is to give out a “Pet of the Day” award. This could be awarded to the best-behaved, good-looking, or well-dressed pet - whatever criteria you choose to go with!


After the session, get everyone's contact details. Remind residents to pick up their photos from the office in two weeks (or however long the photographer needs to process the photos).
