‘THE ART OF PET PORTRAITS'
Creature Companions|February 2021
Hi! I’m Eshita Prasanna, a photographer by profession and a pet photographer out of passion and love for animals! Pet photography, I believe, is more of an art than a profession. I started Tailshots in 2013 to create, capture, and preserve memories of pets and their loved ones!

Here’s my perspective about the Art of Pet Photography:

LIFESPAN & MEMORY

Taking photos is about creating memories. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to go back in time to cherish those beautiful moments? Our little furry ones have a short life span, so it is important to frame the precious time that we share with them.

PET & OWNER

Each image is a story, and each image has so much to communicate! Pets also emote like us though they cannot communicate verbally. The quality time spent by the owner with their pet speaks out in the pictures. I try to capture the candid, playful, and lovely moments between the pet and the owner. Even if they’re not present in every frame, the pet owner is around during the shoot, which not only ensures that the pet cooperates for the shoot, but it also brings out the love and bond between them in the portrait.

CAPTURING THE UNIQUENESS OF EACH PET

The body language of a pet says a lot about their personality. Each mannerism of theirs, like the way they sit, the way they lie down, the way they yawn, the way they look up at their pet parent or the way they chase their tail and settle down is a factor of the photograph. Each pet has his/her own unique characteristics and all these speak through the picture. Their different expressions and various head tilts make the photos extra special. It is important to get to know the interesting little details about pets from pet parents like the pet’s favorite spot, loved toy, cozy corner, and funny habits, thereby making the photograph memorable for them.
