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!

The Brinkman Family {Nashville Family Photographer}

These week I pulled this sweet group out of the archives! Meet the Brinkman family: Tim, Ann, Alex, Nikki, Ty and their super adorable pup Presley. 

They are all big Alabama football fans, especially since that's where Ann went to college. A love of sports now runs in the family!

At the time of the session, Alex is a junior and loves to cheer at Brentwood Academy, and is a big fan of Starbucks. :) Nikki is a 7th grader who also attends Brentwood Academy and is even on the dance team there! Their brother, Ty, is a 2rd grader at Crockett. He loves playing football, basketball and baseball whenever he can!

And last, but definitely not least, is Presley. He's a 10-year-old cockapoo named after Elvis himself! Although not nearly as famous, he does have a fun, curly hairdo that makes him very lovable. :)

Shenanigoats Yoga at The Old School Farm {Nashville Pet Photographer}

I can't believe it's been almost a year since I first photographed a goat yoga class for Shenanigoats Yoga! They've had a lot of interest in their first year and are growing like crazy, so happy birthday, Shananigoats!

This time, I photographed one of their classes at a great wedding venue only ten minutes from Nashville called The Old School Farm. Not only do they have an amazing farm-to-table restaurant that serves seasonal items they grow themselves, they also just built a barn event space that is perfect for weddings -especially since great food is already available on-site! They support local farmers while encouraging sustainable and bio-dynamic agriculture, and do a lot to give back to others in the area. 

 If you didn't already know, goats can be extremely fun in a yoga class. They'll bounce, jump, climb onto your back and of course provide tons of laughs along the way. Just keep in mind that it's 80% goats and 20% yoga when you arrive! Take a look at the photos from last year's goat yoga class, or visit the Shenanigoats website to sign up for an upcoming class! I promise you won't regret it.
