A photographer’s aww-inducing series of photos shows just how universally cute puppies are at six weeks old.

UK-based J Nichole Smith, who has been a professional pet photographer for ten years, snapped portraits of 25 breeds of puppies for her book Puppyhood, with the aim of showing how different – and adorable – each dog can be at the same age.

Unsurprisingly, the Seattle native told MyModernMet that the project, which took 30 days to complete, ‘may have been the single best assignment I’ve ever had!’

Ms Smith, who recently opened a pet photography studio in London called Little & Large, explained that she used oversize 13 by 11-inch pages in the book so that each portrait is true-to-size.

‘All the puppies in the book were photographed at six weeks of age,’ she said.

‘This stipulation allowed us to use life-size images of each pup, we wanted all of the puppies to be the same age. This way, the drastic differences in size from breed to breed would be emphasized.’

Indeed, a photo of a trio of multicolored Pomeranian puppies shows just how small and fluffy they are at that age.
