The Fair Family {Nashville Dog Photographer}

I met the Fair family recently for a fun portrait session with their pups! Meet Deb, Rob, their son Ian, Deb's mom Ayako, and their three rescue dogs: Bonnie Hunt, Lily James and Chloe Stella McCartney!

I loved how Deb came up with some cute celebrity names since she grew up in Los Angeles, and the dogs themselves were super sweet. All three are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, each one with their own unique personality. Deb and Rob first fell in love with the breed's gentle, sweet nature and big puppy dog eyes on a family reunion trip on the coast of Washington. One of their relatives had one and they were instantly smitten!

Bonnie is 14 and was adopted from Lucky Star Cavalier Rescue. She is a total Daddy's girl -- absolutely adores Rob! She also prances and dances when she knows there is a meal to be had, and can be a bit of a food diva. 

Lily and Chloe were both adopted from The Cavalier Rescue. Lily is 6 years old and is the hunter of the family, always gifting everyone with surprises. She'll even run alongside Deb for short distances! And Chloe is only 2 years old, but a total spitfire when guarding the house (think: mighty but tiny with a large attitude!). And although she's the smallest of the three, her snore is "like that of a 100-pound dog" according to Deb!

And not only does Deb have a love for her own furry family members at home, but she's a big part of the PEDIGREE Foundation, a non-profit that supports shelters and rescues with grant funding to get more dogs adopted. She says she's really proud of the work she does to raise awareness of dog adoptions through their grants program! 

Enjoy my favorite previews from their family session!

Henley & Charley {Nashville Pet Photographer}

On the blog this week are two sweet little girls, Henley and Charley, and their two pups! I absolutely loved meeting their adorable King Charles Cavalier Spaniels, named Brave and Sunshine Susie.

Brave is four years old. Henley came up with the name from the movie, after the Disney princess Merida. Sunshine Susie is only two years old, and Charley came up with the name because she thought it sounded "happy"! Most of the time, though, she refers to her as Baby Sun. How cute is that?!

Both Brave and Sunshine Susie love hugs and long naps on the laps of their girls. Their least favorite? When Henley decides to give them a bath. The family loves that they make wonderful companions and are so happy-go-lucky, especially with kids -- and I'm not surprised. Just look at how sweet they are!

Enjoy a few of my favorites below!

The Paulk Family {Nashville Dog Photographer}

On the blog this week is the Paulk family! I had so much fun capturing portraits of Nicole, her mom Irmgard, and their three pups (Chloe, Lexi Kate, and Coco) this summer at my home in Nashville. 

Chloe is an 11-year-old cocker spaniel who has youthful happiness, limitless energy and some adorable paws! She has two true loves: any and all kinds of food, and her toy bunny. She also thinks baths are utterly pointless. Not only did Nicole name her Chloe after wanting a quintessential French name, she also added a middle name of Noël, since she was brought to her new home in the month of December. 

Lexi Kate is a four-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and loves being in your lap the most.  She dislikes the rain and completely refuses to go out in it. What Nicole loves most about Lexi Kate is her resilience, soft fur and laugh. Although the name 'Lexi' was given to her by her rescue heroes from the Cavalier Rescue of Alabama on her freedom day, Nicole added the second name of Kate in honor of her first Cavalier, Katie.

And little Coco is 13 years old and a poochon who was found wandering the streets one day and now has a forever home! They named her Coco because of her hot-chocolate colored fur. She loves naps and toys, and is absolutely terrified of thunderstorms. Nicole says she loves her powder puff tail, the way she runs, and the way she listens to you when you talk to her. 

The day of our session was also a special time to celebrate with photos, since it was Irmgard's birthday! I hope you enjoy these favorites from their mini session with me!
