We were thrilled to be able to have our puppies participate in a photo shoot at Hallmark Cards. They wanted to do a “dog family in bed together” shoot so they needed a litter of puppies along with the mom and dad. Kylie and Salvy had 3 puppies on Nov 29th. Now at 7 weeks old they’re all over the place but it was a lot of fun and they took hundreds of pictures. Thanks to Photoshop they should be able to put a final product together. We hope to hear from them in a few months regarding the final product!
They worked with each dog/puppy individually as to minimize distraction. Kylie was amazing! She was motivated by the treats and was very chill, they got lots of good shots of her. Salvy on the other hand was a bit of a pill! He isn’t one to sit still for long but with patience and a few breaks between attempts they got some pics of him. The puppies were great! They were so funny and entertained everyone. They were intrigued by the sound of the camera which they kept hearing from overhead! The stage ladies were amazing at getting their attention. They used a feather on the end of a stick to get them to look in certain directions, I’m going to steal that trick for my own photo session with the pups!
While they were taking pics of Salvy and Kylie the assistants took the puppies out to a long hallway to play in hopes of wearing them out before their pictures. Reesie Rey wanted to be held the entire time, not surprisingly, and there was no shortage of people to oblige her. Phasma played and played and pulled the potty pad around lol! Kylo played but enjoyed some snuggles too. They were pretty popular.
I was impressed with their set up and preparation for the puppies! They had a puppy play pen set up so they had a carpeted area to lay on and potty pads to pee on so everyone stayed nice and clean for the pictures.
We should know in a couple months what capacity the photos will be used in. They could be cards, stationary, stickers, whatever! We can’t wait to see the final product! Look for a cute little bed with doodles in it coming to a card store near you!
