“Love is a four-legged word”

“Love is a four-legged word”

I recently had the privilege of capturing the love shared between a beautiful family and a much loved family member, Bailey, a Bernese mountain dog.  Bailey has been at the heart of their family since he was a pup and loved each and everyone of them unconditionally.

Lucy, Bailey’s Mum, contacted me to take some shots of Bailey with the family.  Bailey was getting on in years and we wanted to capture the special bond between Bailey and the family, in particular the children.   Although not everyone was happy having to share, Bailey!

“Every boy should have two things: a dog, and a mother willing to let him have one.”


A little time on his own with Bailey and the bond between boy and his dog was all that mattered.

Bailey was such a gentle giant and didn’t mind the limelight or getting all his gorgeous features on camera.

Bailey passed away not long after the shoot, he will be missed greatly. It gave this shoot greater meaning for me as I have felt privileged to be able to capture a snapshot of the beautiful memories and the love shared between Bailey and his family.
