For many of us, the holidays are a time for creating great memories with our loved ones — sometimes in the form of tacky Christmas portraits. We also all know that “loved ones” isn’t exclusive to humans. Our animal companions are no less members of our family than our human friends and relatives and they’re absolutely worthy of their own holiday photo ops. That’s exactly what photographer Oszkar Daniel Gati decided to do. Check out the best of the best of his holiday portraits of pooches decked out in their Christmas best!
“Is that Santa I hear?!”
“Hello! Santa Paws is here!”
We wish we were the human in this portrait.
Fluffy pups, with their eyes all glow!
This one is perfect for the family Christmas card.
We’d see a Christmas play put on by these puppies any day of the year.
“What am I up to? Oh, you know, just hangin’ out.”
This pup’s got some intense holiday cheer goin’ on.
According to the photographer, all of the dogs gladly cooperated with having their portraits taken for Christmas and we think that’s a big part of why these photos are so gorgeous. If you want to take a festive portrait of your four-legged friend, but they don’t seem to enjoy being gussied up for the holidays, scratch the idea and show your companion some holiday spirit with a present instead.
