THE doggy Christmas party of the year has been and it was SO incredibly good! There were so many happy hounds with their families it was actually a little ‘mental’. Everyone was so well behaved and the waggy tails and happy smiles crowded into Pocket Bar and Kitchen was possibly the best ever Dog and Grog yet. All of these people came together to fundraise for The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation.

Thank you Vet Care Grey Lynn  for putting on such an incredible party and bringing the doggy community together in such a great way. I’m chuffed to have been a special guest together with Healthy Pet FoodsAuckland Canine Massage and Pupcakes.

These are my favourite photographs taken in my photobooth. For more of an idea of what went down and behind the scenes, see Vet Care Grey Lynn‘s Facebook post.

See more photos in my Facebook album - if you had your doggy photographed yesterday, I’m emailing the highres files soon.


Watch the video to get a good idea of the happiness.

Behind the scenes


  • Catching up with so many doggos and families who I know and have photographed before

  • There were SIX Leonbergers. Two of who I know and love (Lexi and Skylah’s photo shoot). I even got a new profile picture with Lexi :-D

  • Chewie the Malamute was there too. He’s SO big. He’s so beautiful and have such a nice nature

  • All the dogs who dressed up for Christmas photos

  • Meeting new doggy friends

  • Having so many dog lovers and their smiling faces together!

  • I'm truly so grateful that I get to live in a world where my heart is overflowing with joy because of what I do. Thank you for being part of it!

If you are curious about a full Yellow Lab experience and the type of dog photography I offer in Auckland, read more here or email and I'll send you my info magazine that shows you exactly what to expect. Your dog is the star of the photoshoot, but you're photographed with him/her to document your incredible bond. Hair and makeup is included.

It is a pamper experience my clients love.

Have an amazing and happy week!
