ADORABLE images show pooches surrounded by the stunning flowers of summertime.

Breeds like Border Collies, Australian shepherds, and Dalmatians could be seen posing artistically for their portraits captured in the fields of Slovakia.

These dog portraits were taken by a professional pet photographer, Veronika Shandor, from Bratislava, Slovakia.

An award-winning photographer, Veronika especially loves snapping the cutest pictures of dogs for her clients.

“I enjoy capturing the true nature of dogs, especially when my photo brings a smile to the dog owner’s face,” she said.

“I love it when dogs are natural and enjoy the photo shoot.

“While taking photos, I ensure that the dog model enjoys the process and doesn’t even realise that he/she is being photographed.

“Sometimes, it takes longer to capture the perfect shot, while other times, the photo shoot is completed in just a few minutes.

“I have two of my own dogs, a blue merle and a red merle border collie, who are my partners in crime and wonderful models.

“In April, I won a prestigious award in the international FEP awards, placing first in the domesticated animal category.”
