SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Treetopia, the place to find the latest trends in chic, colorful, high-quality Christmas trees, will sponsor a lively Canine Photo Booth offering free pooch photos with their trees at five of Best Friends Animal Society's Strut Your Mutt events nationwide. Best Friends® Strut Your Mutt® is a series of 5K charity dog walks that brings communities together to raise money and save the lives of homeless pets. Fundraisers choose where their support goes: to Best Friends Animal Society or a favorite participating local animal welfare organization. Treetopia has donated $20,000 to Best Friends and welcomes walkers to join their team.
Treetopia's photo booth will be overflowing with fun pet costumes and props and decorated with an array of brightly colored Christmas trees–the perfect backdrop for Halloween and Christmas portraits. Dog lovers can unleash their pets' personal style, show their true colors and collar Instagramable classics and charming holiday cards. Guests who post their photos and tag @treetopia will be rewarded with a colorful Treetopia doggie bandana.
Taking great pet photos is an art that is easy to learn. Treetopia offers the following five barking great tips:
- Help your pup get used to the camera by letting him sniff it and enjoy a few treats while exploring it to associate the camera with positive experiences.
- Take pictures at your dog's level by crouching down or lying on the floor to create personal and up-close portraits.
- Don't use the flash as it can startle your pooch and abruptly end the photo shoot.
- Get in close to get the details – sometimes the most charming parts of your pup are her tail, ears or paws.
- Select a background that contrasts with the color of your dog and her costume so she'll 'pop' out of the photo.
"We're thrilled to be working with an organization like Treetopia," said Eric Rayvid, director of public relations, Best Friends Animal Society. "Achieving our mission for no more homeless pets is only possible with the help and support of our corporate partners."
