German Shepherds – Dog Photographer Nashville, TN

You may recognize this great dog family from a session last fall. I’m back to share more favorites from my time with them. Max and Princess are both so well behaved –  and loved might I add! German Shepherds have such strong features and I always enjoy watching them. They seem to be intently tuned to the world ready to respond at a moment’s notice. These two were no exception. T and J, I had the best time with you – thank you for entrusting me with your memories.

A couple of my favorites of these four!

Virginia Carter - February 2, 2010 - 9:16 pm

The Harneys rock! What beautilful dogs and the photography is great.

Wanda Carvell - February 2, 2010 - 9:29 pm

What brilliant photos! To be able to catch both dogs and humans looking lovely is a real talent. Thanks for showing them to us.

Deniece Ferguson - February 3, 2010 - 5:54 am

Princess and Max are the most
photogenic neighbors! Oh, Tracye and Jim ain’t bad looking either. Thanks for sharing.

Apregont - February 3, 2010 - 7:44 am

An obedient dog makes me want to stand up and pledge allegiance to the flag. Brings tears to my eyes.

Emily - February 3, 2010 - 8:34 am

Cuuuuute images! I just LOVE the pup’s silhouette in the last one.

Connie Gentry - February 3, 2010 - 9:16 am

Love the pictures of german shepherd, the detail and settings are amazing.

Connie Banker - February 3, 2010 - 2:36 pm

Enjoyed the Harneys blog. Photos were awesome. To get two dogs to stay still and not move at the same time is quiet a task. I think you did a wonderful job. The photos of the dogs and Jamie and Tracey in the background was spectular. I guess my favorite one was the silhoutte.

Amy - February 3, 2010 - 2:59 pm

What great pictures!! Love the one of Max and Princess on the front porch.

Alisa Peters - February 3, 2010 - 3:07 pm

Snowy Day – Golden Retriever Dog Photographer

Last week, we posted a dog photo call on the blog for a shoot I’ve been wanting to execute. Thanks to those who responded! I went with a previous wedding client that I knew would kill this shoot. Jeff and Sarah are head over heels for each other and they have a beautiful Golden Retriever, Lady Blue. I first met Lady when I met Jeff and Sarah for their wedding consultation. I knew we would along great since she accompanied them! Anyway, they agreed to this shoot and I’m absolutely ecstatic with the results. We had an absolute blast playing in the snow. They were all three such troopers. As you can imagine, it was quite cold and it was an early Saturday morning which also happened to be Sarah’s birthday, but Lady LOVED the snow and kept all of us going. Here are a few favorites … Are they seriously not the cutest dog family you’ve seen?

Meet Lady, a 3.5 year old Golden Retriever.

BPA-free Dog Products

Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reversed its position on bisphenol-A (or BPA), an additive used in plastic products that it originally declared safe in 2008. Environmental and health activists have been fighting to ban the use of BPA for years, especially in children’s products. Many manufacturers have discontinued the use of BPA in their products (remember the Nalgene scare?) and the government announced that it will allocate $30 million to research BPA in humans and animals over the next two years. Check out this New York Times article for more info.

In the meantime, I would highly recommend purchasing products without BPA, including the toys for your dogs and cats. In my research, I found products that are toxic-free and fully recyclable. West Paw Design, located in Montana, makes eco-friendly products ranging from chew toys to recycled doggie sweaters to organic cotton dog beds. All chew toys are made of Zogoflex, a toxic-free and durable material made in the US. The company welcomes questions because they want you (and your dog) to feel confident about the safety of their products.

Another great product from West Paw Design are ReKnitz sweaters which are made from reclaimed cotton fibers. Reusing these fibers reduces waste because manufacturing cotton uses a lot of energy and chemicals. Find out more and view additional patterns here.

ReKnitz Dog Sweaters, West Paw Design

Chewber is another company that makes a BPA-free product called the Chewber. It is a rubber frisbee-esque toy that can also serve as a water bowl. There are three styles: Mini-Chew, All-in-One, and Tug N’ Toss and all are made from non-toxic rubber and pigments.

I’m sure there are several other companies making BPA-free products – if you’ve got any to share, please let us know!

Adopt these Sweethearts! – Nashville Dog Photographer

Meet Roxy and Oliver! They are both about 2 years old and are looking for their new homes! I photographed them this past weekend and they are two incredible bundles of love. Both are extremely good natured and love being around other dogs. So playful! They’re medium-sized dogs weighing in around 20-30 pounds. Roxy has completed her dog training and Oliver is heading to his 3-week training this week. They are both spayed/neutered, vaccinated and have seen the vet. If you or a friend are looking for a good-natured dog, give these pups a home. Email us if you’re interested and we’ll put you in touch with their fosters. Thanks to Kelly Tipler for pulling these guys off the streets and caring for them!

On the left is Roxy (Terrier mix) and all of her striking features. Meet Oliver (Basenji/Beagle mix) on the right – love his white chest.

I fell in love with Oliver’s crinkly forehead – thought you might too 😉

OMG cuuuuuuuuuute!

Kelly Tipler - January 31, 2010 - 5:28 pm

Oliver headed to training Saturday morning and will be ready to come back – hopefully to his forever home in 2-3 weeks. He is so cool! We’ve been watching sweet Roxy girl romp in the snow. A couple of awesome pups if I do say so myself.

Kelly Tipler - February 3, 2010 - 5:21 pm

I just got a report from Joe, the trainer. Oliver is doing great with his command training so far! I’ll post any new info I have as he goes along the next couple of weeks. He is a smart cookie and is obviously cute. His new family will have an opportunity to meet with the trainer (already paid for) and get the tips and tricks to keep up Oliver’s training. Three cheers for Oliver!
