I have been shooting for as long as I could remember. Growing up if I wasn’t working for kitty food I was working for film.
So I could take pictures of my cats.
Nana was allergic to cats, but I adopted any cats that came my way, converting an old play house to a kitty shelter.
Those where my passions as a kid, photography and kittens.
I now have a few more passions, my kids, Joff and ducks for instance.
( I also love sports but that is a whole nother post!)
Nowadays photography is a passion of pretty much everyone on the planet. With little exception most photo (biz) blogs I read start with one simple and over used line;
“I started photography because I wanted to take better pictures of my kids”.
Well I started taking pictures so I could take pictures of my kittens.
I have worked hard at improving my photography so I could take better pictures of my precious fur-babies.
The plus side is I am able to take pictures of my kids. I don’t have to take them to Walmart. Or Sears. Or the new photog down the block.
Although I have thought about it occasionally as taking pics of my kids can sometimes be a bit of a headache (Christmas portraits anyone?)
I just wanted to clarify.
I have six kids.
But I also have three adorable fur-baby models.
I’m just saying…….
