Pet Portrait Photo Guidelines
Take your pet's picture with the advice below in mind! Don't worry if you can't follow these instructions to the letter. As soon as an order or picture is received, we have a staff checking it for accuracy. We'll let you know if your picture doesn't fit our standards and work with you to find one that does!
• Close-up photographs are the most effective!
• When photographing your pet, make sure you are standing at eye level with them.
• Take a picture in natural light without using a flash.
• Make sure there is no blur in your pet's image by attempting to get it to sit or remain motionless.
• Long floppy ears should not be out of frame in the shot.
• To ensure that we accurately capture your pet's colors, avoid filtered photographs.
• Ensure that the whole face and neck are visible and not obscured by shadows.
• Please keep in mind that collars, leashes, ribbons, caps, and other adorable clothes will not be included in your final photo.
• Pet's face at eye-level
• Great lighting
• Entire face and neck can be seen
• Pet laying down
• Neck is not visible

Unsure whether your photographs will work?
Send us an email with your photograph (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll let you know. We often produce portraits of pets that have passed away, so we recognize that it is not always feasible to adhere to all of the requirements outlined above.
We can still make it work in many circumstances.
