Photo Book of Your Pet

Dedicate a Whole Photo Book to Your Pet Using Their Best Photos

The dog may be man’s best friend, but cats, rabbits, and other furry critters are also more than just house pets, they’re a part of the family. They enrich our day-to-day life and make us laugh with their peculiarities and provide us with wonderful memories.

By using our tips, you can devote an entire photo book to your four-legged friend filled with wonderful memories and the best snapshots following them from their first days in their new home to how they look now.

Growing Up - Organise Your Pet’s Photos Chronologically or According to Theme

Baby animals are especially cute and always take adorable photos - but, just as with human babies, they grow up way too fast. Organise your favourite life moments or important milestones of your pet chronologically from baby to adult so you can again and again look back fondly at dear moments spent with them. From their first time exploring their new home to their favourite snuggle corner, with every page in the photo book you can display your pet growing up from a baby to becoming an integral part of the family.

Another possibility is to organise the photo book according to theme. You could group the photos together, for instance, thematically such as the last family holiday, a surprise encounter in the forest, or perhaps the first mouse they caught and use your favourite photos from these events.

Tip: A cool idea could be to show photos that compare your pet as a baby and as an adult while striking the same pose in both photos. Get creative and use some humorous photos such as a small pup sitting in a doggy bed much too big for them and then finally growing into it or a cat that just can’t seem to fit into your house slipper anymore.

Your Pet’s Story Told from Their Perspective

You can add short comments or quotes to the photo book pages to add a bit more life to the pictures. To do this, you can either use the text fields provided by your selected layout or by clicking on “Design” in the menu to add a speech bubble.

Your four-legged companion is in the spotlight in your pet photo book. Tell their story from their perspective. Write some comments in the first-person to add to the photos you’ve chosen as if your pet was writing them. This way you can let your pet present their experiences and memories directly to the viewer.

Tip: To really accentuate your pet’s perspective, you can use photos shot at your pet’s eye-level and place them amongst other cherished photos of your pet.

Pet Personality

Thematically organise your pet photo book according to your pet’s innumerable peculiarities and really showcase their one-of-a-kind personality. What are some of the characteristics that make your pet who they are? An out-of-the-ordinary sleeping place, their typical begging face, and their favourite toy are just a couple of examples of how you can really show off your pet’s character. Some habits they keep only when they’re young and others they’ll keep doing their whole lives.

Most pets have cute and peculiar mannerisms - capture them in a photo book

Make it a point to look for photos that show your pet striking one of their typical poses: perhaps them emptying the rubbish bin when they’re bored, their expression right before being fed, playing around in the garden, or even them resting in their favourite spot so they can keep an eye on things in the house. Whether your furry friend is a dog, cat, rodent, or some exotic animal - every kind of animal is capable of winning their owner’s hearts with their little peculiarities and whimsical habits. The photos of your pet will be sure to bring a smile to your face each and every time you look at them.

When choosing which pictures to use for your pet photo book, you should make sure they have as high a resolution possible to ensure your photos don’t appear blurry once printed in the photo book. Our design software will automatically mark photos that have an optimal resolution with a green checkmark and photos that are less suitable in yellow or red. In order to create an overall harmonious design, you should also pay attention to the colour composition and quality of the photos. You can also make last-minutes changes and improvements to your photos by using the photo editing tools available in the ifolor Designer.
