Have you ever heard the theory that dogs resemble their owners in personality and some physical attributes too? I’ve been told many times it is not a coincidence that I have two Golden Retrievers. I do my best to maintain my blonde hair, and if you’ve ever met me in real life, I am so giddy to see you that my entire body wiggles with excitement and my smile is from nose to ears just because I’m with you. I am content just being talked to and if you tell me you have a treat for me (i.e. Starbucks) I’ll basically stay and sit for as long as you ask me to. Like my Golden Retrievers, I am easily distracted by shiny, sparkly things relatable to squirrels and tennis balls. Some might also say that my happy-go-lucky, sunshine and rainbows spirit superseeds deep-rooted intelligence. I’m not a Poodle! The characteristics of me are Golden Retriever through and through.
With that in mind, how uniquely creative must the dogs that have owners in the field of music or other arts be?
I’m here to tell the story of dogs and their artist owners. Tell the story of what happens in the day-to-day real life of living with a musician. What little quirks really are happening from the “dog’s’” perspective? What things does the pup actually feel about his People and similarities and characteristics that are “bred” into the owners and pups alike?
What about the dogs that “choose us” – the rescue dogs that needed to be just loved on. Do we seek out a specific dog breed because we know it will fit our personality and lifestyle as a creative? I’m coming to you as a photographer to capture the essence of your pup in your world from the dog’s perspective and yours as a creative.
My purpose of sharing these stories with you is to create content for the musicians and creatives who are in need of ways to share their world from their homes.
