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 reading this now while your little bundle of fur is pawing at your leg, wondering what on earth could be more important than giving her your undivided attention. That's my Skye (the dog behind the Dog with a Bow.) I can't even write this "about me" page without her demanding constant belly rubs. Do you know how much slower it is to write while one hand is being pawed at impatientily? 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. 

And I wouldn't have it any other way! Because of everything in the World, I think dogs might just give off the most joy and love for the least amount in return. 

I can’t imagine life without a dog so I want to meet as many of them as I can, and capture their unique and quirky personality.

The one that makes you smile every single day!


A LITTLE ABOUT ME

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 pup, just sat between me and my mom, letting out a soft warning growl whenever she tried to raise her voice to tell me off. My mom gave up in the end and I probably shared that ice cream with my springer!

I wouldn't do that now of course...
