Furry friends meet photo booths in this quirky photography book that captures all the cute canine action when the leashes come off and the dogs are the star of the show.

If dogs could take selfies, it might look something like Tails from the Booth. For this adorable collection of photographs, Lynn Terry draws on more than twenty years of professional photography experience to capture the most endearing moments between canine companions: A couple of pitbulls grinning widely at the camera. Two saggy-faced bulldogs bumping jowls. A Pomeranian, an English bulldog, and a Boston terrier dog-piling (of course) on top of each other. These pictures show the countless ways dogs will ham it up in front of a camera, and that more dogs in a photo booth = even more fun!

With all the charm of Underwater Dogs and Shake, Tails from the Booth will make you laugh out loud at all the awkward and endearing ways dogs make friends with each other.

Purple Mini Review

Do you need a pick-me-up from a bad day?  Tails from the Booth is the perfect way to cheer you up.

 

One look at this book’s cover and I couldn’t help from smiling. Tails from the Booth has over 100 photos of dogs making funny faces and striking silly poses. The photos are taken in a photo booth background which adds a fun setting for the dogs. A photo booth brings to mind fun times with friends, squeezing close together and making funny faces. But who would have thought a group of dogs would have the same great time. These dogs are absolutely adorable and author Lynn Terry clearly captured their personalities. There are photos of dogs sitting still, licking each other, and playing with each other. I can’t decide which my favorite photo is.

Included with the photos is the author’s brief story. As a professional photographer Lynn Terry has always had a love for everything vintage. So when she decided to take photos of dogs for a local pit bull rescue group she used old curtains reminiscent of old photo booth drapes. The results of the photo shoots were better than she expected and everyone she shared it with loved them. Because of this great experience she experimented with different backdrops and dogs. But the project was put aside until the death of her beloved dog DeeDee. She regretted not taking any pictures with DeeDee so she started the photo booth series to photograph owners with their dogs. The owners loved the photos Lynn Terry took. Once her photos were shared online the news spread around the world and we are now enjoying Lynn Terry’s work.

 

As an animal lover and a dog owner I love the photos she captured. You can see the intelligence, emotion and playfulness from all of these dogs. This is a collection I will share with all my family and friends.
