Otis, Cowboy, Nugget, & Tucker

I knew this shoot was going to be a lot of fun as soon as I walked up the front steps and saw two giant teddy bears standing in the doorway waiting for me! Otis and Cowboy are gorgeous, fluffier-than-a-cloud Newfoundlands, ages five and two. They are exactly the gentle giants you think they’d be, and are hilarious, adorable, and majestic all at once.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one session, they also have two cat brothers – Nugget, who was found under the crawlspace as a baby, was hand-raised and as a result doesn’t think he’s a cat (or a dog, for that matter) – he thinks he is 100% human! He is unfazed by the dogs and trotted around proudly in his winter sweater. It was so cute I could hardly stand it!

Tucker is the oldest of the crew, the grey tuxedo, a sweet old man who’s more of a loner since he prefers peace and quiet in his golden years.

Rather than trying to explain their personalities to you, I’ll let you get to know them through their photographs!
