In celebration of National Dog Day today, check out these stunning pooch portraits from Massachusetts photographer Amanda Jones.
For her book, “Dog Years: Faithful Friends, Then And Now,” Jones juxtaposes portraits she took of younger dogs next to her portraits of their older selves to show the personality and beauty they’ve developed over the years.
The inspiration for her photo series came from her own dog, Lily, a long-haired dachshund she’s had for 16 years.
Jones writes in the introduction to her book:
“In that time my husband and I moved across the country and back. We bought a house, had a baby, and through it all dear Lily was there with us—passing the time, being by our sides, joining us in our adventures of life. A dog’s life is a span that marks so much in our lives.”
