A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden

Get your pet photographed this year with Santa
Some of us are living without children and some of us have grown up children. Then there are others who firmly believe that their pets ARE indeed their children! Although I have grown up children and grandchildren, my two dogs ARE like my children, and to this end, why not get a photo of your pets this year with Santa?
There are several suburbs and shopping centres where you can do this and I have listed some as follows:
1. WESTFIELD WHITFORDS CITY
Here you can get your group photo of any of your pets (within reason!) on the 4th to 13th December from 6 pm to 9 pm.
There are conditions and they must be strictly adhered to and they include:
a. You need to wait at the designated centre entrance, outside of the centre, and before your booking time. b. When it is your booked time, a staff member will meet you at the location and go inside the centre with you. c. All pets must be on a lead or in a cage. d. Owner is responsible for their pet/s at all times.
e. Owner must bring "doggie bags" to clean up after their pet if required, and these filled bags must not be placed inside the centre. f. Management will attempt to keep to your booking time, however, if you do have to wait, your patience is appreciated. g. Please contact the centre directly if you have any queries.
As they specialise in all things animal, these photos are sure to be excellent - they know the way to a dog's heart! All the photos will then be uploaded to this site, so you can get extra copies at no additional cost.
The photographer will be JF Photography and Jack has been doing these photos for several years now and will get you the best shot of your pet! Photos will be taken on 26th November, 3rd, 10th, and 17th December, 2017 from 9 am to 2 pm. Cost is $10, and you do not need to book.
3. WESTFIELD, INNALOO
At Westfield Innaloo you can get your pet photos with Santa on the 26th November and the 3rd December, 2017, from 4 pm to 5 pm. The conditions at this shopping centre are the same as 1. above and includes one more:
Photography is only available to domestic dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
So please, do not bring your snakes, ducks, mice, goats, horses or llamas!
4. FLINDERS SQUARE, YOKINE
This is where I may be taking my babies this Christmas, however, I am not quite sure yet as my blind dog is not very photogenic as his eyes turn out "freaky"! The days you can have these photos taken are 2nd and 3rd December, from 11 am to 4 pm, and it is outside City Farmers.
Photo packages here start at $15 and bookings are essential - contact Centre Management on 9275 0430 to make a booking, or go to this site.
5. DOGS REFUGE HOME, SHENTON PARK
Santa Paws photos will be taken by Alex Cearns of Houndstooth Studio at the Dogs Refuge of WA and this is indeed a worthy charity, being our largest dog refuge home in Perth. Here, they will email you your digital image and you can use this for whatever you want - even make a greeting card out of it!
Cost of this is $35 and you do not need to make a booking, just come along on the day. Included in this price are refreshments and Christmas shopping is available. All proceeds will help to care for the many dogs they house here. This will take place on 2nd December, 2017 from 9.30 am to 2.00 pm
6. WESTFIELD CAROUSEL
This is another Westfield Shopping Centre that this year, will cater to taking photos with your pets and Santa. The dates for this are 26th November and 3rd and 4th December, 2017 between 3 pm and 5 pm (Mondays from 2 pm to 5 pm).
