I have a handful of friends who don’t have children, either because they aren’t ready to have them or are unable to have them. For these friends, they take comfort and enjoyment in the love they have for their dogs and the love they receive from them. They are the friends (and let’s face it, really anyone who has a dog) who take lots of photos with their canine companions. These pictures pop up in my social media newsfeed all the time. They are, in a sense, family photos – no different from a proud parent taking pictures of and with their children.
Photographer Elisha Minnette came up with the idea for a lighthearted photo shoot with Matt Kay and Abby Lee while on the way home from picking up the couple’s new puppy, Humphrey, BuzzFeed reports.
“Abby and I have the craziest sense of humor and we feed off of each other with ideas,” Minnette told BuzzFeed. “The shoot was hilarious. Everything went so smoothly. The pup was enjoying every second of it, and all the treats he was getting! We did this shoot just for a little bit of humor between ourselves, as well as for those that share the same sense of humor as us.”
The photos are definitely reminiscent of newborn photo shoots and are just as cute.
Taking photos like these with your dog is a great idea and it’s not the first time we’ve seen it. Newborn photo shoots with puppies may turn into a thing. Would you do it? Take a photo with your dog as if he or she were a child and post it on the Dog Fancy Facebook page.
