These utterly charming pictures taken by Stasha Becker illustrates a sweet tale of friendship between her four-year-old son Julian and the family's Newfoundland dog Max. In the collection of photographs, Julian is seen engrossed in several childhood activities like hiding in a fort, going for a walk on the beach and reading a book on LEGO ideas, whilst his canine companion stays by his side at all times.
The contrast between this small boy and this larger-than-life Newfoundland dog with his furry black coat is part of what makes these pictures so loveable. Julian's mom, who is also the photographer, says that their home on an island just above Seattle is "one big playground and there are adventures galore." It certainly looks like Julian and Max are having the time of their lives in these charming portraits.
