Charlie is adorably affectionate example of the male species. He’s cute, endearing and very charming when he wants to be. Sometimes he can be a bit shy, at other times he’s surprisingly forward. He can be very open but he can also be hard to read. We ended up spending an entire memorable day getting to know one another and a new friendship was formed.
Charlie, in case you’re all wondering, is a beautiful specimen of Golden Retriever, and a big important part of Idy and Lawrence’s family.
Idy and Lawrence approached us to shoot a set of portraits on one very rare sunny day in January. An already married couple, Idy and Lawrence wanted to include Charlie in their family portraits. Spending time with Charlie made me see dogs in a new light and at times, it really felt as though he understand exactly what I was saying.
I don’t know if Charlie will ever sit down and look at these portraits but I am pretty certain that after the long day of the shoot, we both slept like babies the next day!
