What is a Yellow Lab pet photo shoot?

I'm a pet photographer, but I photograph people WITH their dogs (or cats!). I bring a trusted professional hair and makeup artist with me to the photoshoot so that you look and feel absolutely gorgeous when you share the spotlight with your pup.

Hair and makeup is for one, but the whole family is welcome. Hair and makeup for more than one person is available on request.

There is no extra charge for more than one dog. Sometimes cats are part of the shoot, or the whole photo shoot too.

Booking fee

Booking fee is $200 and covers your 2-3 hour photoshoot and hair and make up for one. Mention this blogpost when you book, and I'll add in $200 print credit to use at your reveal.

Where I'm based

I will travel to your home that is within 25 km of the Auckland CBD. I bring my gear, lights, backdrop stand, makeup artist and everything else necessary for the shoot. If you don't live within 25 km of Auckland CBD or you'd prefer to come to me, I have a homestudio in Hobsonville Point. 


Two parts to the photo shoot:

1. Studio type shots with different backgrounds and outfit changes

My photography style is fashion inspired and I'll guide you into different poses to show your best beautiful sides. It's my job to make you look good.

2. Outdoor lifestyle type photographs

Once the 'studio' type photos are out the way, you change into something a little more comfortable and we go for a walk close by or simply around the neighbourhood to get more casual less posed, yet stylish, portraits of your amazing friendship and bond. These photos usually work best at a place that has a special meaning for you and your pet, like the beach, your favourite park or even shopping in Queen street. We have no limits and pushing the boundaries is sometimes advised. The beauty of it is that I have some amazing places of my own, if you can't think of any, and we chat about what location will make you and your pup shine. 


Photo reveal

In two weeks time, we meet up again where you will see your images for the first time. The best 20 photographs will be printed and matted and you will choose which of your images you want to buy or have enlarged. I offer framed prints, mounted prints, collections and folio boxes. My images start at $150 each. You buy only the images you love.

There is absolutely no obligation to buy and there is no minimum spend.
It is entirely up to you. You decide when you see the photos.

I accept credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and if necessary we can work out a payment plan. The photographs that are not lucky enough to be purchased, are kept safe for a year if you change your mind and would like to purchase more. 

If the package that you choose includes an enlargement or artmount to hang on the wall, it takes 2 to 3 weeks to have it made.


The flower wreaths

I custom design each photo shoot, so no two are alike. When we start chatting about your photo session, I ask your favorite color or the colors you love for your lounge. For every shoot, I make a new flower wreath for each dog. There is magic in these wreaths that come alive when I paint them with my lights, you will love them.
