Everyone loves to show off their pet and the special bond they have with them. Sometimes people will bring their pet along to the professional family or business photo shoot. Some will even specifically request glamor shots with their beloved pets. Unfortunately, these pictures don’t always turn out as planned.
We know, we know. We bet you’re just shocked to hear that! So we have compiled some of the more entertaining, awkward or just straight up disastrous glamor shots of pets and their just as awkward owners. Trust us when we say these pictures really highlight the special bond between owner and pet. Enjoy!
12. Scheming Black Cat
We weren’t kidding when we said these pictures can be awkward. This glamor shot looks like something taken for a bad horror or alien movie. The black cat looks like he is definitely scheming something. Maybe he is trying to plot his escape from the photo shoot and find a new human?
11. Teddy Bear Or Dog?
Now this is a great example of how a perfectly cute family photo turned out awkward. It’s the moment when you realize it’s not the kid’s teddy bear, but the family dog dressed up. To be fair though, this is definitely one of the better photos out of our compilation. Which should make you cringe for what’s coming next!
10. Family Of Sloths
Now they say that pets often look like their owners, and we’re going to let you decide if that’s the case here… Or maybe they just wanted to have matching hair for the glamor shot? Either way, this picture is amazing. Honestly, how did they get the sloth to wave?
9. Prize Winning Rooster?
It’s true that people actually show chickens at local fairs, and can win prizes for various categories. We promise we aren’t making this up! So part of us is hoping that this is his prize-winning rooster and not just a random one he found to take this awkward glamor shot with.
8. Intergalactic Cat
Intergalactic, planetary, planetary, intergalactic. Anyone else just burst out into the Beastie Boys song? No? Well, we’re kind of sorry that it’s now stuck in your head. This cat really does not seem to be a fan of the space theme or maybe it’s because of being forced into this awful family photo! Do you have any photos that reach this level of awkward?
7. Glamorous Cat
Ugly sweater? Check. Evil looking cat? Check. Ultimate awkward glamor shot? Double check! This glamor shot has taken these awkward photos to a whole new level! This guy looks like he’s about to win an award for being able to catch and force his cat to do glamor shots. Anyone else wondering how long it took that cat to escape?
6. Glamorous Dogs
The photo as a whole isn’t as bad as the crazy cat lady photo (it’s coming up!), but these ladies might be well on their way to becoming crazy dog ladies! Overall, maybe this wasn’t the best idea for their glam photo. Would you bring your pup to a glamor photo shoot?
5. Bowie & His Cat
OMG is that David Bowie? Yes it is! You’re welcome. We really hope this made a magazine cover. A lot of people say pets take after their owners and we have to agree with that here. Look at how purrrfectly his cat is posing! Don’t ever change a thing, you two!
4. Moon Gazing
That cat’s face, though! Seriously, someone please save this poor terrified cat from the moon, or the guy awkwardly holding him. We can’t handle this picture! Is that actually a backdrop? Most likely, and not the point here. If this picture doesn’t bring a smile to your face we don’t know what will!
3. Cat Whisperer
This lady must be a true cat whisperer! She was able to get all six of her adorable cats to sit still for this amazing glamor shot. Just look at those eyes! Now we can understand that if you had this many cats or more (we aren’t judging) you would also want to capture their cute fluffiness. Please just make sure you wear something a little less awkward…
2. Professional Cat
A good professional picture can really help you promote yourself and your business. Whether you’re in real estate or a lawyer, this type of picture gets taken a lot. There is just one thing that seems to be throwing the whole professional aspect right out of the window though. Ah, yes, the cat! How awkward is that? Cute cuddly cats just don’t send the same message.
1. A Great Catch
We understand wanting to get a glamor shot with your cat or dog, but a fish? This is just too much! Plus this lady looks like she’s getting a little too friendly with that fish… Or maybe she’s trying to be a serious mermaid. Either way, we’re not too sure where she would send this head shot or what sort of work she would get from it!
We hope you enjoyed our compilation of highly-entertaining, amazingly awkward, and straight up disastrous glamor shots! Please think of these photos when you plan your next family or professional glamor shots, your future self will thank you.
