Pucker up! Commercial photographer Chris Sembrot captures pet owners expressing their affection for their dogs in the form of a big, sloppy kiss. Inspired by his own unconditional love for his dog Sadie, Sembrot brought in various people and their furry companions to his studio, asking that they interact with their pet as they normally would. The result is a series of portraits that are unashamedly messy and full of warmth. Though some might find it disgusting, Sembrot sees something genuine.

“But what I see is the same crazy sweet love that happens when parents let their toddlers stick their hands in their mouths. It’s not sexy, it’s not inappropriate, it’s just love. And there’s nothing healthier than love.”

    I love dogs and live with 3 but kissing a dog with your mouth open -on purpose- is gross! Yuck!
