As many of you are probably aware, I recently held a contest to give away a pet photography session to a deserving pet. Here’s the winner–Tucker! I do the majority of my sessions in clients’ homes, but Tucker’s family made the trek all the way from Two Harbors, Minnesota for his session in Minneapolis!
Here is Tucker’s contest entry, in case you didn’t see it:
“Hi! My name is Tucker and I am a white Boxer. For the first part of my life I was stuck in a bad situation and an unsafe house, but one day I got lucky and my real forever family came along and took me home with them. I am four years old and loving life! My favorite thing to do is go to the lake cabin and run! I might have some bad habits, like counter surfing, but heck who can resist a tasty sandwich just waiting to be eaten inches from their nose? Definitely not me. Luckily my family loves me and all my flaws 🙂 Unfortunately last Thanksgiving my family found out that I have cancer. The outlook is not good. What my family would like best is a great picture to keep with them when my time comes and I would very much like to give that to them! Just look at my smiling face and try to tell me no ;)”
Interesting fact: Tucker was actually entered into the contest by his “cousin” (his owners’ niece) who is a volunteer for Ruff Start Rescue!
Can you tell he’s loved? 🙂
Modeling is very hard work–I make sure to take plenty of time for water and play breaks.
Tucker was full of great facial expressions (but he spent most of the time smiling).
These last two images were suggested by Tucker’s mom–I think one of these would look amazing as a canvas above a sofa or fireplace!
Thank you so much Tucker and family for driving to Minneapolis for your session! It was such a delight to meet everyone and I hope you love your images as much as I do!
