Is your pet ready to pose with Santa?

We’re kicking off the festive season in the cutest way with special Santa photography sessions for pets and their humans to enjoy together. It’s only fair that furbabies get to share their Christmas wishlist with Santa too, and what better way to warm hearts than with greeting cards starring both two- and four-legged members of the family?

Our ever-popular Santa Paws photography sessions will run Saturday to Wednesday evenings from 24 November through 19 December and are open to dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs. Festive pet apparel is encouraged, with accessories such as reindeer antler headbands and Christmassy collars readily available at the likes of Petbarn, Target and The Reject Shop.

Photo packages range from $21 to $49 and feature various print sizes, greeting cards, gift tags, bookmarks, calendars and fridge magnets. Every photography session also comes with a free goody bag of The Secret Life of Pets merchandise worth more than $50.

So how do you make sure you get the paw-fect portrait? Aside from making sure your furry friend is nicely groomed, keeping your tone calm when issuing voice commands and having a few treats handy will help them feel comfortable in front of the camera.

While the changes in routine associated with the festive season can be stressful for humans and pets alike, taking some time out to create the ultimate keepsake is guaranteed to make you and those around you smile and to set the tone for a very merry Christmas.

Skip the queue and reserve your Santa Paws session now.
