  • Hm.. with that many species, I would just go for everyone wearing SOMETHING that coordinates, like all in red (whether collar or halter or hat or sweater etc) or something. I wouldn't try for everyone having exactly the same accessory. '

    But then again, you sound pretty ambitious, so maybe what *I* would do isn't all that helpful to you! If you really think you can pull it off and it will be worth the effort (hey, I don't know your animals, maybe they're super-cooperative!), then I would say the scarves.

    Good luck and Merry Christmas!

  • I don't think you need any accessories.

  • None of the above - it is going to be so busy already, accessories are just going to turn into eyesores. Leave it as it is.

  • So thanks for actually answering the question FelipesMom!

    Every year we do a card with props and a theme. One year everyone was on a sled, even the dogs! I have plenty of professional portraits of the children and the pets au natural. And no, it won't turn into an eyesore when it is set up properly. I work with commercial photographers who set up scenes like this and profit from it...where do you think I got the idea of the! Yes, the animals all get along, several have been in print ads, commercials and tv shows...they are trained and easy to photograph.
