cats don’t care

Maybe it’s because I turned into a crazy cat lady when I adopted Rupert and Javier, but 2014 has been the awesomest (yes, awesomest) year of your pets in your portraits. Today’s post is dedicated to the cats. Because cats don’t care and for some reason, therapy has yet to reveal, the more they don’t care, the more I love them. It seems highly appropriate with Thanksgiving just two days away, to express my gratitude for the most ungrateful house pet of all. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving, friends. Stay Grateful.

mommy-son-swim Our session was essentially over, so today a shout out to the naked mom who let me continue shooting even though I had already wrapped it up. An extra loud shout for her permission to share it with you. I cried a little when I opened this one. Real tears, not even lying.

I’ve been sitting on these photos trying to think of something catchy and creative to say about twins and their older sister just off to college. I love to write. I love to take pictures. I hate writing about my pictures. It’s feeling forced to write all the time that holds me back from posting my work as often. I hate superfluous hearts and flowers kinds of commentary because truthfully, there is way too much commentary in the world. I trust you are perfectly capable to decide for yourself what I think about these beautifuls.

There was a series of the 3 of them together and it was tough deciding which one to post. For sure I love this one the best, but the other you can see here on Instagram right before I shipped their package out.

It’s quite a crazy feeling to photograph a baby girl (middle image) one day and then get a call that she got herself a new baby sister right before starting kindergarten! How does time move by at this clip? I don’t get it. I’m trying to be mindful of the moments as much as I can. Have a beautiful week!
