Layla, Louie and the lovely lady

13 12 2010

I photographed my friend Karen and her Ragdoll cats, Layla (left) and Louie this afternoon. Last year I photographed her with Layla for her Christmas card. (Learn more about Layla in my post here.) Karen adopted Louie earlier this year.

Many of you may be familiar with the saying, “herding cats.” Well, getting these two furballs to sit still and actually look at the camera (and not punch each other out) was like….well…herding cats! We got the best photos when Karen sequestered them on her bed (see how color coordinated everything is—her bedroom walls are painted the softest spa blue—looks like a portrait background, doesn’t it?). And in this photo, one might actually think the two cats love each other. One would be so very wrong. We’re both happy with the results and the cats are no worse for the wear…especially after we plied them with treats.

Why, I think those are beautiful cats. Very photogenic, yes? You had better make a calendar before someone else snatches them up! Oh and tell that “lovely” lady her hair is almost the same color as mine! I’m sure she’s very pleased and grateful for the great job you did!

How adorably beautiful!!! I want to touch the screen and squeeze them all as they look sooooo soft and cuddly.
