The Daigle Family {Nashville Pet Photographer}

Right before Christmas, we took a little trip to visit our friends, the Daigle family! They used to live in Nashville, and now are back home in Fort Kent, Maine. We had a blast with a mini family and pet session at Rick's parents place!

Meet Rick, Cassie and their son, Keegan -- who has the cutest smile! Not only does he love his puppies, he loves to act like a puppy himself sometimes!

Their adorable pups are Molly, Layla and Hank. Molly is a border collie/Great Pyrenees mix who was adopted from Austin Humane Society. She's also SUPER friendly and definitely loves to be in your personal space, asking for love by putting her paw on you. 

Layla was adopted from Austin Pets Alive and originally had the name Kara. She's also very sweet and the most relaxed and laid back of the three dogs. Hank's original name was Guacamole! Before they adopted them, Cassie and Rick knew they wanted a Layla and a Hank, and I think their newer names fit them well. :) Hank is the protector of the house, but once he warms up to you, also just a love!

All of them love to play with other dogs, and can't get enough rawhide treats. They're all very snuggly and friendly, and have huge personalities that I just loved! Last, but not least, we also took a quick photo of the family with one of the oldest horses on the farm, named Bonnie.

Enjoy some of my favorites!

Jesse & Cody {Nashville Elopement Photographer}

There are so many reasons why I love elopements, especially ones like Jesse and Cody's recent elopement at the Riverwood Mansion! These two lovebirds came from Springfield, MO with a few of their closest friends and family to celebrate their marriage.

The Riverwood Mansion is a beautiful place to say your vows, and Sue with Elope in Nashville created a lovely elopement ceremony inside the mansion for Jesse and Cody.

After taking photos there, we headed into downtown, which was their first time in downtown Nashville! Although they don't have any pups yet, they were certainly checking out every dog we passed in town -- so I won't be surprised if one joins their family in the future! 

They also had a fun Friday the 13th invite and wedding ring case, so it's even more fitting to share it on Halloween! And just wait until you see her gorgeous hair which Cody did herself with the help of a friend!

Thank you, Jesse and Cody, for giving me the opportunity to capture such a special day for you.

The Swarr Kids {Nashville Dog Photographer}

I can't wait to share with you these photos from an adorable mini session with the Swarr kids and their new puppy, Ace!

Meet Hudson (age 9), Caroline (7), Spencer (4), and of course Ace (who is only 16 weeks!). All three kids like to say they came up with the name Ace and often debate about who came up with it first! His full name is Ace Calhoun Swarr and he's a sweet, little Conton de Tulear

I also think it's super cute that each of the Swarr kids have their own opinions and thoughts about Ace & what the best things about him are. Hudson loves how cute, fluffy and nice Ace is with everyone and also thinks Ace loves all of his chew toys. Caroline says that her number one wish of her entire life came true when Ace joined the family this summer and proclaims that Ace loves to be active and isn't a fan of house-breaking training. Spencer, on the other hand, states that his favorite thing is playing with Ace and believes Ace loves to ride in the car more than anything else! 

I hope you love these favorites on the blog this week!
