Legacy Sessions

A fun and relaxed dog photography session in a location that best suits your Senior

Our Legacy Sessions are specially tailored with the needs of your Senior or Terminally Ill friend in mind. This is a session you will treasure, long after your furry friend has left this world. We understand the needs of your Senior or Terminally Ill pooch, having been through it ourselves so we go out of our way to make this session a fun and relaxing time for you both, where you get the opportunity to make some precious memories of your time together as we capture them on camera so you'll have those memories for a lifetime.

Every Hairy Dog Photography session is tailored to your Canine companion's needs and personality. Being in the mighty Waikato means there are a huge number of amazing locations we can choose from - including your place, should your furry friend not be up to leaving home - or we can keep it simple and easy with a session at the Hairy Dog Studio.

We go at the pace of your pooch - no drama, no stress and nothing that would make them uncomfortable. Just a nice time for you and your pooch to spend together making memories. In this session we not only capture images of your pooch, but that beautiful bond you both share. Because our Seniors and unwell friends often struggle with long sessions, there is no set length for these sessions, we end the session when your pooch has had enough. 

No stress, no posing just capturing fantastic images that you'll treasure forever.

Show of your Furry Best Mate With Premium Artwork

Here at Hairy Dog Photography, we believe that you should have the very best artwork to show off your Furry Friend. Not only does our range of wall art, albums and folio boxes look great, but they are all heirloom products, meaning only the very best inks and papers are used to create your artwork. Our albums and folio boxes are hand made from the finest materials to ensure your memories will last for generations.

You'll get to see our range of beautiful artwork and choose what fits your home when you come in to the Hairy Dog Studio, two weeks after your session for your Private Reveal Session. This is where you'll get to enjoy a sweet treat and a drink and see all the very best images from your session. We will go through all the images and artwork with you to help you choose the best artwork to show off your Canine Companion's photographs.

How It All Works

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 Senior. We do offer a complementary consultation, either in studio, by 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!

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 and 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.
