‘Tis the season for dressing your little ones in their Christmas finest and going to see and get a picture with Santa, and that includes your fur-babies too! Pet photos with the jolly man in red are becoming more and more popular- and there are a lot of places where you can take your pet to get their pic taken with Santa in Edmonton!
Edmonton Humane Society
My sister and I have always taken Gucci to the Edmonton Humane Society for her annual picture with Santa. The tradition started because my friend Allison from Teagan Photography volunteered as a photographer with the Edmonton Humane Society. Allison took pictures of Gucci when she was 7 weeks old so we she kind of became Gucci’s official photographer … haha!
