This fun collaboration with writer / conservation photographer and friend Jaymi Heimbuch was a source of a lot of laughter and joy to say the least. Jaymi wanted to celebrate her dog Niner in a big way for his birthday, alongside our own Willow and Corbin who love him dearly, and work on a themed project together. Inspired by Winnie the Pooh’s 100 Acre Wood, she gathered all the materials and goods for the big birthday bash. We set out to scout the perfect location and time at one of our favorite haunts and proceeded to let the dogs just enjoy a good party, pupcakes and all. These images are co-owned by The Labs and Jaymi and can be licensed for use. Curious how we pulled it all together? Make sure to visit the Lab Notes for Part 1 and Part 2 documenting the experience.
