Nashville Photographer – Wednesdays with Laura

Happy July! Is anyone getting ready for summer vacation? We’ve got some great dog-friendly travel resources and tips for traveling with kids to share with you. And, to prepare you for vacation time, here is one of Adrian’s photos from a trip to Pensacola Beach, Florida last summer.


Dog Friendly has answers to all dog-travel questions ranging from pet-friendly beaches to restaurants to campgrounds. The website even offers dog city guides and lists places along interstate highways that are dog-friendly. I would definitely check this out before hitting the road with your pup!

If you are looking for a luxury hotel, visit Pet-Friendly Accommodations Worldwide (PAW). This is a website that lists a “curated collection of luxury (3 stars or higher) pet-friendly hotels.”  PAW also reviews hotels and provides updates on special offers at hotels worldwide.

For those of you whose vacation destinations require flying, Pet Airways is an airline that “flys pets in the main cabin, NOT in cargo!”  Don’t worry, the pet owners don’t fly in the cargo either. This is the first airline exclusively for pets, with dedicated pet attendants who care for your pet the entire flight. The flight cities are limited at the moment, but check back as the company grows. And, if you want to learn more about regular airline pet-travel policies, Trips for Pets has a list of phone numbers to call.

Also, Nashville Paw Magazine has a fantastic article on traveling with dogs. Be sure to pick up a copy!

Although there is not a Kid Airways (just kidding!), we found some websites that suggest cities, hotels, activities, restaurants, and more that are great for kids! Best Kid Friendly Travel offers tips from packing to destinations and has guest posts about specific cities. Travel for Kids is an international trip-planning website that features practical tips, best-bet hotels for families, and book recommendations for destinations all over the world. Definitely worth checking out these sites before your next big adventure!

Also, every Friday in July Adrian is going to share photos from her adventure in Guadalajara, Mexico…be sure to check back on Friday to see some amazing photos!

Have a great day!

Why Photography is Important – Nashville, TN Dog Photographer

I had the greatest honor of photographing this sweet, sweet dog family last week. Kristen is one of the kindest, strongest individuals you will ever meet. From our very first phone conversation, I knew we would click well. To give you a back story, five years ago she tragically lost her husband in a single car accident one mile from their home. She was left with her son Will, Labrador Dewey and Golden Retriever Trace. In spite of that great loss, they have made a wonderful life together and the deep bond that her and Will share is so ever evident. Trace and Dewey are fully integrated in their lives and it’s simply beautiful. About a week and a half ago, Kristen received news that Trace has cancer behind his right eye and it is too far along and in too rough of a place to perform surgery. As a result, Trace has only been given a few months to live. That is when Kristen called with interest in dog photography, and I’m so glad she did. This was probably one of the hardest dog sessions for me, but the photograph below makes it so incredibly worth it. I hope it is always a reminder to Will as he grows up how much his pups were loved and how much they loved him. Trace has the quietest spirit and the sweetest soul. He has lived a short nine years and I hope these last few months are some of the best for him. Be strong, sweet boy.

Trace, Kristen, Dewey and Will. (And if you’re like me, maybe the photograph will help take away the tears and replace them with laughter.)

Oh goodness, good thing you warned about the tissues. What a perfect picture to keep as a memory of such a beautiful pup! And much love to you, Adrian, for being there for the family even though I’m sure it was hard on your animal-adoring self as well!

mary crow - June 30, 2009 - 4:30 pm

Beautiful Adrian!!

Kathy McGee - June 30, 2009 - 5:07 pm

What a fabulous shot of one of my favorite families! Beautiful!!

Mindy - June 30, 2009 - 6:20 pm

Darn you! yep, tissues needed, but great post :)

Mary Chancellor - June 30, 2009 - 8:02 pm

I’m Kristen’s sister-in-law and Will’s aunt AND adore what you have captured of this very special family! The pics will be such a treasure!! Can’t wait to see all of them!

A favorite of Benny – Nashville, TN Dog Photographer

We have been busy bees this past month, but we still made time for the dog park this weekend. I’m so glad we did. Not only does it wear Benny out, but I always have a fun time as well. I love all of the shadows and yummy light in this portrait. Hope your week is off to a refreshing start!

What great light…I LOVE doggie shadows!

Music City Muttfest – Nashville, TN Dog Photographer

Meet Trace the farm dog. He lives a life that I believe the majority of dogs would be quite jealous of. Numerous acres of land to roam and chase down wildlife, a barn to nap in and this great tree to seek shade under. His puppy-like face immediately stole my heart.

Also, mark your calendars for this Sunday for the first Music City Muttfest to be held at Loew’s Vanderbilt Hotel symphony ballroom. It will be indoors (to avoid the horrid Tennessee humidity), highlight 45 dog friendly local businesses, and feature K-9’s in Flight (something I’m super excited to see!:)). It will be held from 2-5 and is a perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon with your family members and friends – especially the furry ones. Be sure to drop by and see us!
