Free of society’s inhibitions, dogs operate with primal indulgence — if something in the garbage smells tasty, they will help themselves to it. Which is why we love them, even as we mop up our kitchen floors after them. Their lack of self-consciousness makes it easier for us to be ourselves around them, knowing that our canine friends will embrace us no matter what.
Award-winning photographer Serenah has always loved dogs, but it wasn’t until four years ago that she turned her lens on our furry friends — and on her own dogs in particular: Rocco, Ralph, and Simon. Inspired by their cleverness and the way her pups make her laugh all the time, Serenah’s pet photography captures the sometimes unintentional humor of dogs in a loving, gentle way. Her images are guaranteed to crack a smile across your face and kindle a flame of contentment in your soul.
Following in the pawsteps of famous dog photographer William Wegman, Serernah first started photographing her pups Rocco and Ralph, who, according to her, “are always up for some fun if cheese is involved.” Her Bulldog, Simon, has is own “look and personality to work with,” and now Serenah pushes her artistic skills by challenging herself with creative ideas.
The result is a portfolio conveying the essence of dogs that is both wild and wildly funny. It almost makes us wonder whether the dogs are actually doing it on purpose just because they love to see us smile.
