Shenanigoats Yoga {Nashville Pet Photographer}

If you've ever considered trying yoga and haven't found the right opportunity yet, this week's blog is for you!

I had an absolute blast taking photos for a goat yoga class last weekend at Shenanigoats Yoga! And no, the class isn't for teaching yoga to goats, but it does involve doing yoga while hanging out with the sweetest goat babies you've ever seen. 

Although everyone loved them all, Mac, a 12-day-old goat, was the biggest star of the class. Goats are extremely fun animals to be around. They bounce, jump, eat leaves and they made the yogis in the class happy (and more than a little distracted in the best way). 

Shenanigoats originally started with Shenanigoat Landscaping, a goat grazing lawn service right here in Nashville. After becoming interested in the possibilities of combining a yoga class with their friendly baby goats, they decided to give it a try. And I'm so glad they did!

**And the week after I photographed the class I was able to attend and had my own experience with baby goats on my back in downward dog & plank. Let me just tell you, it's the best way to do yoga!

The Prudoff Family {Nashville Dog Photographer}

Today we're doing a blast from the past and pulling this session from the archives!

Meet the Prudoff family: Kristen and her two daughters, Emma and Alexa. I had so much fun taking some photographs with the girls and their adorable pup Stewie at their home in the Governor's Club

I adore these photos because you can tell just how much these girls love Stewie, as well as their sweet kitty! Take a look at a few of my favorites that I still love to look back on even a few years later.

The Kemp Family {Nashville Dog & Portrait Photographer}

On the blog this week is the Kemp family! Kayla and Eric run Winks and Whiskers, a local company that makes great apparel dog owners would love to wear. The best part? They donate 10% of every sale to a dog-focused charity!

I met up with these two and their adorable dog, Sadie, who is an 8-year-old mix of Rottie/Chow and who knows what else! We strolled around downtown Franklin, Tennessee -- which has the cutest little Main Street EVER and some of my favorite spots to photograph pets and their humans.

Sadie is the kind of dog that mirrors your activity level; when they hike, she hikes, and when they relax, she does too! Sadie also loves braided bones from Three Dog Bakery and is not a fan of drones -- she'll bark and chase after them every time!

Kayla and Eric adopted Sadie when she was 5 years old from a local shelter called Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center in Columbus, Ohio. They feel very lucky and blessed to be her parents, since a lot of events had to align for them to meet and adopt her when they did. 

Kayla also adds that she loves mutts because "they are beautiful and most are in need of our help." She hopes that through education and awareness, we can bring more mutts to forever homes. 

Want to see some of the fun pet parent apparel they make? Check out a recent session I did with Winks and Whiskers to show off their latest t-shirts! And if you love Sadie's adorable ombre pink leash, head on over to Harbor Hound's Etsy shop!

I hope you enjoy these adorable pictures from our pets and their people session!
