The May Family {Tennessee Family Photographer}

I recently met with the May family at Sarah Benson Park in Thompson's Station, TN for a fun family and pet photography session! Below you'll see Angel, Anthony, their daughter Bella, and their two adorable pups: Presley and Maya.

Presley is a 13-year-old Havanese who often showed a lot of dominance as a puppy. Since he acted like the King, they named him Presley! He's definitely a lap dog (it's his happy place) who loves his momma.

Their favorite thing about Presley is his calm, nurturing demeanor. He is like a therapy dog and has been a real comfort through tragedies in life. Angel was at a dog training class with her shelter dog when she met Presley’s breeder. She fell in love with the breed because of their sweet disposition and her mom bought Presley before she passed from ovarian cancer. She knew he’d be there to love Angel when she was gone.

Maya is an Australian Shepherd puppy who got her name based on her actions and looks by Bella. She was also Bella's 8-year-old birthday gift and now they are the best of friends! They both love to play outside together, and Maya is a smart, yet hilarious dog the family loves to pieces. Everyone who meets her falls immediately in love with Maya. 

Bella spent 4 months researching dog breeds online and from TV shows to find the perfect dog for her. The Aussie has the playfulness, intellect and look she wanted. Bella is now 9 and is going into 4th grade this year. She’s an outdoorsy girl who loves all animals (especially dogs!) and has played soccer for several years. She wants to be a K9 trainer in the air force when she grows up, which I just love!

Maranda, Adam & Reba {Nashville Pet Photographer}

Today you'll get a chance to see some familiar faces: Maranda, Adam & Reba! We met up at Ellington Agricultural Center for a springtime pets and their people mini session. 

It's always so fun to work with them! If you haven't seen my previous posts from their sessions, head on over to our 2016 session at Harlinsdale Farm and Downtown Franklin.

Reba is also an adorable 9-year old red-head named after the famous Reba McEntire, which I just love! Most everyone has guessed she's a pit/daschund mix, which is a pretty interesting pairing ;)

Maranda says she is "literally the best dog" - easygoing, doesn't bark 99.9% of the time, and gets along with all people and other dogs. I've also witnessed first-hand her kangaroo skills; she can jump so high! Reba is also full of snuggles, loves to sleep in and is the best embodiment of unconditional love, ever.

Reba is a rescue from a no-kill shelter in Western TN, through a Petsmart adoption day in Nashville several years ago. She's super lucky to have such a wonderful forever home!

The Renfro Family {Nashville Family Photographer}

On the blog this week is the Renfro family! Meet Alex, Tiffany, their baby Finn, and their two fur babies Copper and Lady Bird (also known as Birdie!). 

Finn just turned 15 weeks and has the most beautiful blue eyes! He is such a sweet, adorable baby!

Copper is a 5-year-old beagle/basset hound mix. They named him after the hound dog in The Fox and the Hound, which was always a dream of Tiffany's to have a hound dog named Copper. They rescued him from A Safe Place for Animals in Gallatin, TN. Copper loves to fetch, rip up toys, and snuggle. Their favorite things about Copper are how kind he is to his sister Birdie, how he grumbles and snores like an old man, and how he is never shy about giving kisses to anyone.

Birdie is a pit/lab mix who will turn 4 years old this year! She was originally a foster from Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, but the foster was a failure -- they just had to keep her in the family! She is hard to describe on paper because so much of her personality is quiet and soulful; you just have to be around her to know her. She is as tough as nails and had quite a rough start in life, but is now doing really well with her forever family! Birdie’s favorite things are blankets to snuggle under, checking on her human baby brother and giving him kisses on the ear and head, giving kisses to Copper, and snuggling as long as you don’t acknowledge it (or you’ll spook her!).

These photos were part of my May Mini Sessions, and if you're interested, there are still a few dates left open! :) Reach out to me to sign up, and be sure to bring your own furry family members along!
