More Meows on Blue Mutt!

I was so excited to hear that my friend Blair, and her husband, who have been in the market for a new home – finally ended their long search… because they ended it in MY neighborhood here in Dallas. I couldn’t be more happy to have a great friend so close and as a new neighbor. My excitement reached a new level when she called me to let me know they had adopted a teeny-tiny little kitten. I ran over to snap a few photos of their cat as a housewarming gift and a great blog post!

Meet Honey, the sweetest little kitten in my neighborhood. She was a natural at getting her photo taken, but I did get a good laugh when her Dad asked me if – as a pet photographer – I knew how to talk to animals since she was behaving so well.

Another special fact about Honey (full name Honey-Mustard) is that somewhere out there, maybe not even born yet, she has a brother on the way! Her parents are looking to adopt a sheepdog, who already has a name… Ketchup! I’m sure that Honey-Mustard and Ketchup will be fast friends! Welcome to the neighborhood :)

Murray & Lucy

Every now and then I am lucky enough to get to spend an afternoon with a gorgeous cat or two. And that is exactly what Murray and Lucy are for sure! Talk about a change of pace. Photographing two beautiful cats could not be more different than photographing two dogs. The first thing I always tell my cat clients is “The cat is in charge of this session.” Murray and Lucy were definitely in charge of their own session and it couldn’t have turned out better. They were a bit cautious at first, but with a little patience and some loving coaxing they eventually came out of their shells and showed me their curious personalities :) That is Murray on the left and Lucy on the right!

I just love cat whiskers! Check out Lucy’s long white whiskers :)

Bert-Bert

Bert is one beautiful cat with a great name and a ton of personality. Photographing cats is very different from photographing dogs (as I’m sure you can imagine), and Bert was a great subject.

Here are the “rules” when it comes to photographing cats:

  • The cat is in charge
  • The cat is in charge
  • The cat is in charge

Well, that’s what they need to think at least. You just have to let them “do their own thing” while you follow them around and photograph them being beautiful! It just takes a little patience – a big thanks to Bert’s mom for being so very cool and loving her fur-baby so very much :)

Oliver & Owen

Now, I know I love pugs and I know I love beagles… so when I heard about Oliver & Owen who are puggles I was so excited to meet them. Oliver & Owen are actually brothers – their parents only set out to get one puppy, but when they saw these two they couldn’t choose just one… I don’t blame them! Even though they look alike they have personalities of their own. Owen is on the left and Oliver on the right – they are both full of love, kisses, and tail wags. They also have a sister cat named Chloe, who is the queen of the upstairs. She’s pretty shy but we were able to get a few photos of her as well.Oliver & Owen 01-aOliver & Owen 07Oliver & Owen 06-a

Owen had just learned how to “roll-over” so he was proud to show the whole family his trick!

I would say these two are pretty much inseparable :)

Kitties… and Bunnies Need Love Too

It’s been raining a lot the past few days here in Dallas, a far cry from Blue Mutt’s Afternoon Off. So we’ve been stuck inside – which is okay with me, because it means I get to spend time petting cats and rabbits! I’ve never had a bunny as a pet, but they are so soft I could pet them all day long. And you don’t have to sell me on the cats, I grew up with them and had them as pets up until I met my husband, who by the way is allergic to cats and rabbits 😉 These love bugs are looking for homes as well at the SPCA of Texas.

This beautiful white cat had me giggling the entire morning. I’ve never seen a cat this cross-eyed. Pretty endearing!
