The Watkins Family {Nashville Pet Photography}

The Watkins are on the blog this week with their new, very adorable puppy, Jack!

Jack is a 10 month old Piebald soft-wire dachshund. I love how human his eyes look & his general amazing fluffiness!

Paige said she and her husband David agreed on the name Jack after several days of debating human names for puppies. I love human names for pups too.

Jack loves playing catch, hiking, and the dog park.  He does not like being left alone.

They love his curiosity and outgoing personality.  He makes friends easily anywhere he goes and makes us smile everyday. They also love that dachshund have large personalities in small bodies.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from this fall mini session!

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!

The Watkins Family {Nashville Pet Photographer}

Today's blog will celebrate the life of another furry friend, Joey. This adorable little pup passed away a few months ago, but I wanted to share some of my favorites from this last photo session with him and his family. 

Joey was a 12-year-old dachshund, and was adopted by his parents when they were in college. They came up with the name Joey because he liked to hop, just like a baby kangaroo (how cute!). 

He loved being around people and being the center of attention. Although he was a small dog, he had a big personality: always alert, turning his head to the side when you talk to him, and hated being left out of activities. Dachshunds are courageous, curious, and confident, and he was a great example of all of these wonderful traits.
