Ok, I’m about to go all Chandler from Friends on your here, but could this photo session by Cuije Photo BE any cuter?

We’ve got a long haired Dachshund Chewbacca, a mini Hans Solo and even an adorable Darth Vader. It’s a trifecta of cuteness! Take that Ewoks.

This has to go down as one of my favourite photo sessions of all time – there’s even a Behind the Scenes video of the shoot (see below).

May the cuteness be with you.

From Rocio:

Once upon a time, in a galaxy not so far away, a furry little dachshund was born, the force was good in him, so they named him Chewbacca.

Celebrating his 12th birthday, the long haired dachshund invited his friends Han Solo and Darth Vader to a picnic at Kashyyyk, his home planet, where every day, a new adventure begins.

You would think that a dachshund and Star Wars don’t mix, but you would be wrong, growing up a Star Wars fan (it her case it was more like a religion) photographer Rocio Preciado knew just what to do when the opportunity to photograph Chewbacca came along, even making up the Han Solo costume from scratch by herself, that is the kind of attention to detail that sets her apart from the rest.

Let’s just wait and see what Chewie has planned for his next birthday!!
