I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week than with these stunning images by Minneapolis-based pet photographer Karin Newstrom. If these photos don’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will!

Karin’s impressive portfolio is a blend of on-location and studio sessions with pets of all shapes and sizes (there are even a few horses and cats in the mix). Oh, and a donkey! I’m a fan of her location work especially, particularly because I know how tricky lighting can be in those situations. Do you have a preference for studio or location portraits?
