Riley, Lara & George {Nashville Dog Photographer}

On the blog this week is another family and pet photography session at the Ellington Agricultural Center, this time with Lara, George and their super sweet pup Riley! 

Riley is a German Shorthaired Pointer, and almost ten years old! He's still got a ton of energy, and loves outdoor adventures both big and small: parks, the woods, a walk around the neighborhood. George and Riley even get up almost every morning for the last 8.5 years to go for a run, and they both love the time they spend together before the sun comes up. 

And apparently Riley really hates any beeping sounds! They had to turn the beep function off of many home appliances so that he wouldn't run outside!

Lara and George adopted him from a family living outside of Memphis. The family and their neighbors each had a German Shorthaired Pointer, and they created a litter of pups! Lara and George were on their way back home to Nashville from a family visit in Texas when they picked him up. 

When I asked what they love most about him, Lara said, "Riley is such a content and silly dog, and up for any type of activity or cuddling session. We've come to find out that these qualities are typical of the breed. One of the unique things is that we get stopped constantly on the street by people who want to compliment him, ask about the breed or tell us a story about a GSP that they have owned/own."

I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photographs from this session!

Mia & Nolan {Southeast Missouri Portrait Photographer}

Sometimes I really can't believe how fast time flies by! I recently had the opportunity to take portraits for Mia and Nolan on my family's farm in Missouri. Her mom and I went through school together and were roommates in college, and now Mia is officially a teenager!

I've photographed her for forever, and it's so hard to believe how grown up she is now. She even brought her dog Nolan along for a few adorable photos with him!

Nolan is 17 years old and is a toy poodle. His favorite thing to do these days is napping with his humans. I  had so much fun capturing the two of them together.  Mia even toughed it out by dipping her feet in the freezing creek water!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their photo session!

Brett & Amanda {Nashville Engagement Photographer}

On the blog this week is Brett & Amanda's engagement session, which was so much fun to photograph! 

Brett is actually my cousin, and Amanda is his high school sweetheart. They're very much in love, and one of the cutest couples I know. It's always so nice to see your family members go through such an exciting moment in their lives!

We took these photos at a family farm in Southeast Missouri, and the lighting was just perfect! And although they don't have any furry family members yet, Amanda did say during out session that she does want a golden retriever someday (and I can't wait! :)
