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!
