Remember my post on the awesome Laurie Victor Kay? Refresh your memory here... I obviously have a crush on her. One of my favorite things about Laurie is her adorable relationship with her husband, Charles Kay Jr. Their story is a remarkable one and told in their own words, with a bit of whimsy... here.
To give you an idea of how endearing they are, I must include a family photo. Check this bad boy out...
And this one... have you ever in all your life seen a cuter face than that little tux wearing boy? And the little princess is absolutely the most precious!
See more of their amazing family photos here.

So, just as Laurie is an exceptional artist as well as a professional and talented photographer, Charles is the same, except different. Obviously, they are a team as far as Laurie and Charles Photographs goes, and each contributes their talents to make the whole. Having your portrait done by this dynamic duo is a special treat and there are no regrets involved. Recording your family visually and permanently is important, enjoyable and when using this charismatic couple, it can be an art project. Trust me when I tell you they are quite capable of producing an artistic addition to any home with stunning images of family. See examples of portraits on their website here. (The French Tangerine family portrait featured here)

Charles is a celebrated photographer and has quite a repertoire of models including none other than Tiger Woods... See for yourself!

Recently, the duo shot Michael Imperioli from the Sopranos for the 1800 Tequila ads... 

Charles is a celebrated artist. I am in love with his series, Paris Still Lifes. Charles and Laurie are no strangers to Paris. The Parisian landscape has been a continuous inspiration to the pair. Through their artwork, their brilliant interpretation of this lovely city is realized. 

Here are a few examples from the Paris Still Lifes series... serene and peaceful.
Le Grand Palais
Passage Arque
Les Chaises en Bois
Musee D'Orsay
Anarchy, another amazing artistic accomplishment, energizes the viewer, speeds up the pulse... totally hip and cool and a great representation of Charles' vibrant and electric personality. 
Union Jack

Buckingham Palace
I'm pretty sure Charles and Laurie think I'm obsessed with them. I'm not going to lie. I am obsessed with them. We're talking the cutest and most talented couple in town, seriously.  Oh man I want to do their inspired home!


Their fine art pieces are housed in public and private collections all over the world. With an abundance of awards, celebrity clients aplenty, and exotic travel a constant pull... I know what you're thinking... glamour central, right? They may appear that way to the untrained eye, but when you know them, you know that despite their unmatched sense of style and sophistication, they are wonderfully regular. They adore their children and each other. They work hard and volunteer. They are fun-loving and deep thinkers. It's truly a pleasure calling them my friends.

If you are in the mood to be inspired and entertained, for a few minutes or a few hours, you can visit their website here, or you can visit Charles' website here. Plan on being filled up full with fabulousness.
