Window light, A Boy & A Cat

Here is my little darling - in fact, not so little anymore - with our fluffy Persian cat, Zara


He & Zara love to have a cuddle on the cozy armchair by the window. In fact, this is the perfect place for "at home" portraits. In winter through summer, the light in this room is just GORGEOUS. In winter it is crisp and chill and has a pure edge. In summer, I can capture the softer tones in a black & white & golden tones in color child portrait


This little series was very casual so he is still wearing his slogan T shirt. Sometimes there isn't time to worry about wardrobe. What matters most is the genuine moment of connection. The warmth of a cuddle with his cat.


This boy has always loved cats, ever since he was little. He would chase them down the street when we lived in Abu Dhabi and the strays would come out of curiosity to our door. He has had a lot of experience taking care of street cats and kittens. We rescued our cat Zara from a vets. She was in a cage about to be carted off to a cat shelter, and we nabbed her from Hello!


She was very shy at first when we took her home to Abu Dhabi, but after a while she ventured out of hiding between the books in the book shelves.


When we moved to Dublin all our pets came with us of course (Miss Tiddlywinks the av=bu Dhabi stray kitten, Zara our Persian & Pebbles our Pomeranian)


Child portraits with pets is a wonderful way to relax & engage children in a child portrait session. Children with their pets can result in wonderfully classic child portraits, as well as more lifestyle portraits with all the family.
