It’s only $20!

You get to work with a professional photographer with a professional setting, lighting, equipment, and staff.

You get a ton of high quality digital prints, as well as access to professional physical copies

You get a coupon to be used on your next visit to Wags to Wiskers (or that day!)

It’s only $20!

So, based on all of that goodness, our team came up with some great, creative inspiration for you to use your professional photos for years to come! Let us know which of these ways to use pet photos is your favorite, or if you have some of your own we’d love to hear what you’re doing with them!

Create Your Own Frame

Go to a local craft store and get a plain wood frame and whatever other media you’d like - our team here at Wags to Wiskers Pet Supplies thought that you could do some cool things with sharpies, a variety of different paints, or even nail polish!

With this idea, you’d be able to decide what your frame says…how about “Friends furever,” or “when I needed a hand, I found your paw,” or for rescues “who rescued who?”

Dog and Paw Imprint

Photo and Pawprint

This will definitely last forever, and is not very expensive to get! Just look for paw imprinting clay, or along those lines. These are often used in pet memorials, but they certainly don’t have to be!

If you have a puppy, it a creative way to use your pet photos would be milestones as they grow up. Getting paw imprints as they grow from 5 pounds, to 25, to 65, or even bigger would be a cute way to show the progression. You might need a bigger shadowbox though 😅

Printed Options

Who says photos only have to go in frames? How about a card that can be sent to friends, family, coworkers, or otherwise? Obviously the content of these cards can be anything you’d like them to be, but here are a few ideas our team at Wags came up with:

  • Life updates and announcements

  • Congratulatory cards

  • Personal business cards

Doggo Through The Years

We’ve had one of our beloved customers let us know that they took the idea of a “through the years” frame and used it for their dog! We thought it was absolutely brilliant and wish we had a photo of the original for you here, but I suppose just showing you this stock photo will be enough to let your brain come up with creative ways to fill up these frames. Regardless, you’d need to take a photo of your pet every year or so, and why not do it at our photoshoot this weekend?

Put it Everywhere!

There are so many ways that you could creatively print your pet photos. We’ve got some ideas that might be out of the box for you:


Coffee mug
Pup socks!
As a pillow
On a blanket
A tshirt

Endless possibilities, all improved by the fact that with a professional camera and high powered lens, the photos you’d get are high quality, high resolution, and gently colored and edited to perfection.

Mother’s Day Gift

Although we are emphasizing that this is a Spring photoshoot and is available for everybody, a professional photo of your dogmom or crazy cat lady would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift that she deserves.

Nothing too crazy this time, just 6 creative ways to use pet photos! We hope to see you at Wags to Wiskers Pet Supplies this weekend for our Spring photoshoot!
