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!

Harley & Courtney {Nashville Family Photographer}

On the blog this week is Harley & Courtney! Harley is 3 month old fox red Labrador retriever and is super adorable and very sweet!

Courtney says she was very undecided about his name at first and had several that she liked. Ultimately her mom started saying the name Harley and it eventually just stuck. Now she thinks it really suits him! He has a tough side but is also a very sweet and playful pup.

Currently, Harley's favorite thing to do is chew. He chews everything from shoes and furniture to walls and cabinets. His least favorite thing is leaving the dog park after playing with other dogs.

Courtney’s favorite thing about Harley is how excited he gets to see her in the mornings and when I come home from work. She says, “He's a funny little pup and he brightens my day everyday.” Her favorite thing about the breed is the energy, how loving they are, and how much they love water. Specifically with Harley, she fell in love with the color of his coat. “I like how unique it is!” 

Enjoy some favorites from their mini session!

Stacey, Armando & Seve {Nashville Dog Photographer}

On the blog this week is an adorable family session with Stacey and Armando and their sweet black lab, Seve! I had so much fun taking their portraits at their new home in a beautiful new neighborhood where every street has a farm animal name! 

Seve is a little over 3 years old and has quite a unique story! One of Stacey's friends worked at Murphy Road Animal Hospital and when a puppy came into the clinic with swimmers syndrome (a difficult scenario that often requires lots of physical therapy to overcome), a woman who overheard the situation asked that they call her before deciding to put the dog down. Long story short, she rescued him and with the help of her friends and a physical therapist, he was able to retrain his muscles and become healthy. When she could no longer keep him, Stacey and Armando brought him home and he's been there ever since!

Seve is named after the famous Spanish golfer.  Seve (the golfer) was known for being a fighter, too, so it fit with the puppy's saucy personality and his backstory very well!

Seve absolutely loves food and playing chase, although he isn't much a fan of kids or flea medicine time. Stacey's favorite thing about him is how much he enjoys going with her on car rides and she loves that black labs are smart, loyal and easy to train.

I'm sure you'll fall in love with his charming smile! Just take a look at some of my favorites below!
