First - Book Your Session
Your first step is to contact us, we'll then be in touch to discuss how to fit your session around the needs and personality of your Pooch. We do offer a complementary consultation, either in studio, via email or by phone - whichever is easier for you - so we can go over how everything will work and how we can best tailor a session that works for everyone.
Next - Session Time!
Yay! Exciting! This is the fun part! Making sure your session is fun and stress free is super important to us. If you're relaxed, and we're relaxed then your pooch will be relaxed too - and a relaxed pooch takes WAAAAY better photos. It also helps to really capture your Canine Companion's character when they aren't feeling any stress. All you've gotta do is turn up and enjoy the process!
We'll tailor make your session with your pooch in mind - from background choices to props used to poses and even down to the treats we provide! We make sure this is a great time for your pooch while working hard to provide the best images for you.
Worried your Canine Companion wont behave themselves? Never fear! We regularly work with rescue dogs and have learnt some tricks to capture even the most character filled pooch! (and the naughty ones are always make it waaaay more fun haha)
After That - Your Private Image Reveal And Ordering Session
We'll book a date (usually 2 weeks after your session) for you to come in to the Hairy Dog Studio for your image reveal where you'll get to see the very best images from your session (and enjoy a sneaky sweet treat). This is where we'll help you choose the artwork or packages that suit you best.
And Then - Your Artwork Has Arrived!
Is what we'll tell you. Within 4 weeks of your private reveal session, you'll get to see it all in person for the first time. We LOVE this part! It's always so fun to show you all your amazing goodies. Why does it take so long for your goodies to arrive? We source our artwork and prints from only the TOP professional print labs both here in NZ and overseas, to ensure you receive the VERY best heirloom quality items that will last a lifetime (and longer!). No more unedited images on a usb stick stuck in a drawer somewhere for you! Only the best will do.
