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!

Harry Wilson {Nashville Dog Photographer}

Harry is a 13 year old mix of who knows just what exactly…..(mini schnauzer, terrier, Chinese crested…and the list could go on).

This handsome guy got his name from a book from the 50’s called Harry the Dirty Dog. It is about a mischievous little fella who gets into lots of trouble. A very fitting name for this pup.

He loves his hedgehog toy, sleeping in the bed with his people, and bird poop. He is not a fan of barbershop quartet singing, tuna, the mobile groomer, or his dad’s rancor star wars toy.

His mom, Kate, says that she loves the little twinkle in his eye most of all.

Harry was adopted from the Wilson County Animal Shelter. He actually crawled right into Kate’s purse as a tiny puppy... so of course she had to take him home.

When I asked Kate what she loved about all his mixed breeds she said: ‘Everything! I love ALL of them. Ha! I love his crazy hair (Chinese crested) to his sharp intelligence (terrier). He communicates. He has a sense of humor and he actually tries to tempt me with his toys. Right as I am about to grab his hedgehog he rips it away and runs down the hall. He definitely has a little devilish side (mini-schnauzer).’

Enjoy a few of my favorites from his session!

Rutherford County PAWS {Nashville Pet Photographer}

One part of my job I love doing on a regular basis is taking photographs of current dogs and cats available for adoption!

Rutherford County PAWS is a wonderful local pet adoption center based in Murfreesboro, TN. From one week to the next, there is rarely an animal there for too long, which means that I'm always getting the chance to meet new furry faces (and also means that the ones I already met have found forever homes!). The staff there really care about the sweet pups and cats that stay there until they are adopted. PAWS also works closely with other rescue organizations in the area, so very often animals will go out to rescues and foster homes. 

Here are some of the sweet pets I've had a chance to photograph lately, and although they may not be available any longer for adopting, you can visit the adoption page on the PAWS website to see which ones are still available or which newcomers have arrived! 

Thank you Rutherford County PAWS for all you do for these sweet animals!

PAWS adoptable dogs in Nashville

This is Hazel, who's my current favorite and has been at the shelter for a little while now. She's an absolute sweetheart, and I loved her photo session. Hazel is an 8 year old labrador/retriever mix, and she may be getting passed over because of her age, but she's a happy dog that won't chew up your house!

This is Lucy! She's a 6-year-old Maine Coon Mix and is very regal.

Meet Meika, a 1-year-old spayed American Bulldog Mix. Her previous owner surrendered her as they didn't have enough time for her but didn't want to neglect her, so we hope she finds a better home soon!

And lastly, here's a success story! These last two images are Great Pyreneese mixes that were SO scared the day I was there, the gal who works with them had to carry them outside to do photos (and they are not small). They were surrendered by their owners and had been outside dogs, and the shelter just wasn't comfortable for them. I was concerned about them and later asked her what happened and found out they were adopted together by a sweet family with older kids and a German Shepard puppy. Apparently, when they saw the kids and the puppy they just came alive, and it was a perfect match!
