Welcome to the blog, sort of like a digital garden where dreams are planted and grow wild! My name is Quianna and my family calls me “Qui” like key! I’m a traveling photographer based in Scottsdale and the Bay Area.
I love adventures and creating memories even more than I love photographing them—and I LOVE taking photos! In addition to capturing weddings, family milestones, and the best memories I also offer business tools, motivation and inspiration to help creatives turn their passions into their profession. We only get this one life, why not live our days doing what we love?
Photographer Files: 5 Tips for Posing with Your Pups | Quianna Marie Photography
Anxious to photograph your fur babies for a family portrait or engagement session, but stressed out about the thought of having to pose with them? No worries! These helpful tips will ensure a stress free and fun session with your pups!
5 Tips for Posing with Your Pups
Leashes. Don’t forget to grab these and consider a nice solid leather brown or black leash for photos. Those hot pink or star wars themed leashes are the best, but not always for photos.
Pack their favorites! Balls, toys and treats… something to get their attention.
Plan to arrive to your photo location 20 minutes earlier than scheduled. This allows your pups to run around, sniff and acclimate to all of the new smells and excitement!
Don’t forget water! They will be thirsty and often endure a long car ride.
Most importantly bring a friend/mom/sister to tag along! We will start portraits without your pups so you can get comfortable and crush the nerves before we throw the rambunctious fur babies into the mix! I’m a dog lover, but it’s incredibly helpful to have another helping hand not only to take the dogs for a walk while we shoot without them, but also to hold the treats behind my back! Works like a charm every time!
Please remember that my job as your photographer is to capture the love and happiness between your whole family! As long as we have fun and catch some natural candids I can guarantee you’ll love your photos!
