Jo booked a dog photography photoshoot with me to treat herself for her birthday. She had her hair and makeup done beautifully before she stepped into the spotlight to join Betsy Boo, her adorable labraspoodle, in front of the camera, so she looked perfect to head out for special celebrations that evening. It was such a fun, happy and relaxed photoshoot, I love how it turned out.

We shot at her home in Grey Lynn in Auckland and once we got all the studio type portraits of her and Betsy and Betsy’s individual pet portraits, we went for a walk close by. There is usually 2 parts to a pet photoshoot with Yellow Lab. The second part of their photoshoot, were shot at Auckland Domain. Her husband couldn’t be there for the photo session, so I’m glad he met us at the Domain so we could make a family portrait for them. 10 minutes later Mike was on his way again and Jo, Betsy Boo and I carried on making beautiful photographs of their special bond and friendship under the cherry blossom trees in Auckland.

Here is what Jo said of her and her dog’s photoshoot with Yellow Lab dog photography:

If you are thinking of getting photos done with your dog please please please use Salome. She is amazing and the photos are stunning. The whole process was so much fun and having my hair and makeup done made it such a treat. This has been a fantastic experience and I got beautiful photos at the end of it. I cannot thank Salome enough. Book her now... you won’t be disappointed... I promise!

The artmount of Betsy as wall art turned out so well too.
