Fast Friends


Their friendship was just meant to be.

One is 9 years old and the other is 84 (in dog years).

Maddie did not own a dog — and our dog Charlie was more than willing to be her “fill-in” pet. Maddie has been stopping by the studio to see Charlie, to do tricks with her, or just to give her a belly rub.

So, it seemed natural to get these two behind the camera — together.

Maddie had some great ideas for poses with Charlie. We not only took pictures of the two together but also some of Maddie by herself. And when I asked her which pictures were her favorites, she simply replied, “The ones with Charlie!”

Maddie says she wants to be a photographer when she grows up. She is very curious about what happens after you take the pictures. So, she will be back in the studio this summer to learn Photoshop and Lightroom techniques.


Charlie isn’t the only one who has gained a new friend.
