Why Dogs?

Some things just fill your heart without even trying. Dogs are family - as simple as that.  I know you'll know what I mean if you're lucky enough to have a dog in your life (and I'm guessing you do...unless you just love looking at dog pictures? If so, I can't say I blame you...dogs ARE pretty awesome, and a page full of gorgeous pups is just one click away!)

I hope you are one of the lucky ones though. I hope you know what’s it’s like to have been chosen by an awesome pup.

I hope you are reading this now while your little bundle of fur is pawing at your leg, wondering what could be more important than giving her your undivided attention. That's Skye (the dog behind the Dog with a Bow.) Do you know how much slower it is to write an “about me page” while one hand is being pawed at with impatience and insistence? Skye does, and she couldn't care less.

I remember a time in my past when I was SO much more productive with my time...and then I adopted a dog! Now my clothes are covered in hair, my favourite chair is no longer my chair, and I'm woken up every morning by Skye jumping on my head the second the sun breaks through the window. 

And I wouldn't have it any other way!  I can’t imagine life without a dog. I’m sure you can’t either. So I want to capture their unique and quirky personalities. 

The ones that make you smile every single day!

And I mean a little! Your session is all about your dog. I'm just the guy making weird noises to get that oh-so-awesome head tilt! 

Here's the super quick breakdown though - my name is Paul. I got my first dog when I was a baby; a gorgeous (and more than a little energetic!) springer spaniel.

We were inseparable. My mom tells a story of trying to tell me off for something I did at 3 years old (I probably took an ice cream from the freezer without asking or something), and my loyal, protective puppy, just sat between me and my mom, letting out a soft warning growl whenever she tried to raise her voice. My mom gave up and my springer got a lot of treats that day.

The Session

Enough about me though. Your dog is the true star, and their session will be all about them. To learn about our sessions simply click the button below!
