What with getting married and all the hoopla surrounding it, I took a few weeks off from photographing at the shelter.
I went back last week, and boy was it great to be back.
I love those cats! All of them are so sweet, and even when we're herding them around on the white paper background, they're pretty patient.
This one's Perseus. Check out those blue eyes!
And this is Chico, who loved having his chin scratched.
This love bundle is Ness. Really playful, with gorgeous yellow eyes and a cute little half-tail.
This is Ace, who was very friendly but refused to leave his kennel. He knew what he wanted, and that was to stay put. Plus a warm lap.
I also got the chance to photograph my first parakeets, Harry and Holly. They were certainly a challenge! They flew all around the cage, never perching where I wanted them to.
And then of course there were the kittens, who were heart-meltingly cute.
This is Cosmo, who was a sweetie but a bit shy.
And this is Carolina who completely got into chasing the toys. Black cats, kittens as well, always take the longest to adopt out. I can never quite figure out why, they're so dapper looking.
Ellis was our last kitten, with the cutest little sleepy eyes. He started out a bit shy but then he warmed up. Here he is with Christina, having a little powwow before the shoot.
