Tails From the Booth by Lynn Terry- A Book Review

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 ShakeTails from the Booth will make you laugh out loud at all the awkward and endearing ways dogs make friends with each other.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tails from the Booth by Lynn Terry is a 2015 Gallery Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book as an XOXpert, the official street team of XOXO After Dark.

As an animal lover with two beautiful Cocker Spaniels and three cats, it's a no surprise that I love this book. In fact, all dog lovers are going to want a copy of this book, for your bedside table or coffee table.

This is a hardcover picture book dedicated to dogs as they pose and ham it up for the camera. The author has created a collage of professionally shot vivid color and black and white photographs that mimics the effect of being taken in an old fashioned photo booth, only with dogs.

These pictures are absolutely hilarious! The expressions on the faces of the precious canines kept me entertained for hours. Anytime you need a pick me up, this book will give your spirits a boost.

As a professional photographer for over twenty years, specializing in animal photography, these incredible photos have captured the essence of man ( and woman's) best friend. The idea for this book came from the author's online photos, which was so well received, she decided to put the photos in book, and I am so happy she did.

I found the author's notes on how she manages to get the dogs to pose for the camera very interesting, as well as her insights on the joy of pet ownership.

“When I was trying to complete my thoughts for this book, I asked friends what their dogs meant to them. The best answer I got was,

' We have an old mutt that has very few teeth, bad breath, is scared of his own shadow, and has periodic seizures. I wouldn't trade him for any other dog in the world.'

The photos in the book are printed on glossy, high quality paper, and are the most adorable pictures of dogs of all breeds. This book sits out on my coffee table and never fails to capture the attention of family and friends. This is one of the most imaginative picture books about dogs I have come across in a very long time.

If you love dogs.. (And who doesn't? ) Then you will not want to miss this book. Not only that, this is a perfect gift idea for the pet owner and dog lover on your list, young and old alike. Now, all we need is a companion book, featuring felines! 5 stars!
