Pet Photography Video

Putting yourself out there isn’t easy. I think it comes easily to other people, but I always hesitate. I guess I’ve gotten pretty good at talking myself out of making my business personal – or at least it’s something I constantly have to remind myself to do.

So the idea of really putting myself out there, talking about myself and this business I love so much – let’s just say it wasn’t an easy thing for me to wrap my head around! But I look back and think about all the people to whom I’ve ever said “I’m a pet photographer” and their questions follow: “Pet photography? What is that? How does that work? How do you take pictures of dogs?” The puzzled looks on their faces always go away after a few minutes of explanation, but I realized that an introductory video would answer those questions for anyone who cared to know, all at once, and better than I could answer them just with words.

So a few days ago I released this bad boy: my promo video. It still makes me incredibly nervous to know that it’s out there; I feel like I’ve bared a small part of my heart and it’s open to judgement by anyone, anywhere. But at the same time, I know it’ll give people that’ve never heard of pet photography a great idea of what actually happens during a session. And that was the goal all along.

There’s one more thing you should know about this video: it was made by my husband! I think it’s incredible that he has next-to-no videography experience, but this looks like something I should have paid a LOT of money for! He worked incredibly hard on it, for weeks, and all on our old laptop that constantly gave him issues. The fact that something like this is the result boggles my mind.

This video can always be found on my Facebook page and the homepage of my website. I really hope it answers lots of questions for people who’ve never known what pet photography is – and that it shows how much FUN we have!
