The Fritz Family {Nashville Pet Photographer}

Today's post features a handful of my favorite photographs from a portrait session with the Fritz family! Meet Lee, Whitney, and their super adorable 13-month-old Yorkie, named Yoda!

When they adopted Yoda from RARE (Rural Animal Rescue Effort), he already had the name, and they loved it so much they kept it! He loves anything related to food and treats, especially carrot sticks. And unlike other dogs out there, he enjoys looking handsome in his clothes and even cries when we take them off! For the family portrait session, you can even see him wearing a cute red polo shirt below!

Yoda has a big personality in a small package, is very intelligent, and definitely a snuggler. :)

Enjoy the previews!

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. :)

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!
