I love photographing cats. Cats are independent, silly, playful, stubborn and curious. Unlike dogs, they almost never do what you want them to, unless they are hoping for something yummy or looking for a head boop. But photos of cats take my breath away. They are such elegant animals. Their eyes are stunning and they have a way of looking into a camera lens that makes my photographers heart smile. So when Zoe’s parents asked me to photograph her, I was over the moon.
Zoe is a 15 year old Maine Coon mix who looks and acts like a kitten. We had so much fun with her shoot. Of course, I brought a ton of backdrops and props to use for photographing her and she decided to have none of that. Zoe decided to hold court from her favorite spot on a console table in the living room of her home. Fortunately, her owners are in the process of redecorating and the wall behind her was painted a beautiful soft gray and didn’t have anything on it. So we adjusted our plan of attack and went with Zoe’s choice. I think it turned out beautifully. It helps that she was a natural in front of the camera! Zoe for the win.
If you have a cat you would like to have photographs of please contact me!
