Hilarious Instagram Portraits of Adorable Dogs "Sitting" in Mugs

Emily McCracken (@muttadventures) loves photographing her three rescued dogs: Gertie the bull terrier, Boston the Dane mix and George the mutt. So naturally, when she first saw this #babymugging idea started by Instagrammer Ilana Wiles (@mommyshorts), she instantly knew that she needed to photograph her puppies in exactly the same way. McCracken said, “The pictures were hilarious and adorable, so naturally I put George (my ‘fur-kid’) inside a mug.” Thus, the "muttmuggin" series was established and has since developed into quite the popular trend.

The project is simply a play on perspective and there is no Photoshop required to get that one perfect photo. Photographers just need to get their pup to sit still for a moment and then hold a mug out between the camera and the dog. McCracken suggests having three things on hand: a full bag of smelly treats, a nice squeaky toy, and a tennis ball (or two) to get the attention of your main subject. The trending hashtag has resulted in a fun collection of ridiculously cute faces staring up at their owners as they unknowingly pose for the whimsical portraits.
