Coozie Howell {Nashville Dog Photographer}

Sweet Coozie recently had a mini session with me at Smith Park, one of my very favorite locations. Coozies full name is Coozie on the Spur, and she is a 2 year old Black Labrador Retriever.

Here are some fun facts about Coozie, from her pup parent, Therese:

How did you come up with the name for your pup?

We own a house on the Tennessee River, and the community is known as Peter's Landing. Our first Retriever was Bella of Peter's Landing, so we tried to come up with a name related to the river. I wanted to call her Tenn Lizzie, and she responded to the ZZZ sound in her name. But my husband came up with Coozie, since we use coozies at the river. The road our house is on is known as the Spur, so she became Coozie on the Spur!

What do your dog love most / like least?

Coozie loves food, treats, toys, and her family, and I think that is the order in which she loves them! She absolutely hates squirrels, and people walking by "her" property!

What's your favorite thing about her?

We love that Coozie is a "chill" lab - she's calm, and sometimes a little shy. And we like that she is smaller than most labs; she is fun-sized!

What do you love most about the breed?

Labrador Retrievers love people, dogs, food, and life! The breed is loyal, loving, and smart.

Hope you enjoy a few of my favorites of this sweet girl!

The Holland Family {Nashville Cat Photographer}

I’m so excited to have some sweet kitties on the blog today!

Meet the Holland family: Adam, Andrea, Aidan, Austin and their cats KitKat and Kisses.

Even though they aren’t sisters, both girls are about one and a half years old and were adopted together. Kisses is a domestic medium hair tabby and KitKat is a domestic short hair calico.

Andrea told me the boys named them. “Aidan chose KitKat before we went to pick her up, and Austin chose Kisses after we got home that afternoon. Their names fit their personalities well! Kisses is very affectionate. KitKat is Miss Independent and constantly getting into mischief. Kisses takes on the Momma role and is more timid. She can definitely be a “scaredy cat” at times.

They love to chase the little balls from the boys’ Nerf guns because they can easily fit in their mouths and bounce high. They also love to chase the laser pointer. They love laying outside on our screened porch. They love to pounce on each other and can get pretty rough. It’s hilarious to watch them, and they constantly keep us entertained!

We rescued them on December 1, 2017, from the Nashville Cat Rescue at Pet Supermarket in Cool Springs.”

Aidan is 13. He plays drums and is in a rock band called Donut Creme. He’s in 7th grade at Woodland Middle.

Austin is 10. He loves karate and is currently an orange belt. He has his green belt and will get his purple belt in April! He’s in 4th grade at Crockett Elementary.

Thanks for looking!

The Tucker Family Fall Mini Session {Nashville Pet Photographer}

The Tucker Family have been my clients for many years, and I truly appreciate them coming back to me for their yearly furry family updates. This year we went to Smith Park in Brentwood and got some fun fall photos with their amazing pack! Click here to see their extended family session with their pets from a couple years ago. Each year they take a photo with a photo - starting with an image from their wedding!

Here is all the info about their three lovable pups:

Nana is five year old husky/great pyrenees/pittie mix adopted from Rutherford County PAWS. Her original name at the shelter was Nanook, but they shortened it to Nana which fit her old grandma "get off my lawn" personality! Her favorite things are walks, belly rubs and bossing everyone around. Although she can be a protector of her people, she can also be totally silly. 

Briley is their 6 year old treeing walker coonhound mix, whom they also found at Rutherford County PAWS. Katie said, "Her name at the shelter was Peanut . . . which had to go." So they took a few days to think about a new name, and they thought Briley sounded the sweetest for such a sweet dog. He's a big fan of riding in the car, chewing bulky sticks and taking up all the space in the bed. 

Last, but definitely not least, is Josi (Yo-C)! He's a 3 year old Aussie/Pittie/cocker spaniel mix who was dumped in a local park. Katie says she was in the right place at the right time to find him, and now he's a big part of the family! She named him after the Nashville Predators defenseman, Roman Josi. Josi isn't a fan of peanut butter, but he does love playing with toys, being in everyone's personal space, and going on walks. Their favorite thing about him is his goofy personality -- and of course those freckles!

Hope you enjoy a few of my favorites!
