We took an inordinate amount of doggie portraits this year… so here they all are

For an interior design magazine, Image Interiors & Living dedicate quite a few of their pages to adorable dogs. Here are the pooches they photographed in 2019.

The Image Interiors & Living traipse all over the country to capture beautiful homes and talk to the people that live in it. But they all fight over who gets to go to the houses that have a resident dog. They might even keep a running tally of how many dogs crept into each issue (the highest was the September/October 2019 issue: 15 doggos).

In fact, they photographed so many this year, that they decided to round some of them up here. So here they are in no particular order (because every member of the team had a different favourite)…
