Photo Sessions

We aren't very good at photo sessions so most of our photos are candid so whatever photos Mommy can get, that's all she's going to get. We don't pose and certainly don't cooperate when she thinks she sees a good photo opportunity. An example can be seen here, she thought we were cute (of course) so wanted a picture but a well timed movement messed up the picture...
She tried again and we were both holding still and looking in the same direction, just not the right direction...
Again, we're looking in the same direction but really not the right direction...
and once our big sisfur Sadie gets involved, all good photo opportunities are over.
No matter what the photos look like though, we know we're still cute!

How do your photo sessions go?

Well our photo sessions depend on wevver we're in the mood or not! Tee hee!

Grampy said...

Poor Sadie just wanted to get into the photo shoot.

ha ha ha! Our photo sessions are very much the same. . . only without the woofie!

Manny & Spunky Doodle said...

Our photo sessions usually go well. We like our picture taken most of the time. If we are on the move, Karen uses the sports mode on her digital camera to get the action.

Daisy said...

My Mommeh just takes lots and lots of photos to get a good one. Oh and she holds up treats for me (or a toy for Harley) to try to get us to focus on the camera. Sometimes it works!

The Creek Cats said...

We think the photos look great! Dixie Dog usually runs in front of our photo sessions.

Catherine said...

My photo sessions go about the same ~ though you would think it would be easier when I only have one fur ball to take pictures of! Banjo seems to know just when to move ~ just as I click my camera! Oh well. :)

Simba said...

I never really cooperate and it's just one of me, so you have a much greater challenge when you try to photograph 2 cats together. Your pictures here show a good story!

The Monkeys said...

We like to do the same thing! Deli is a master at moving at the last moment so the photo is blurry or all we see is her tail leaving the frame!

You girls are so cute, that even the messed up ones are adorable!

Alterity Button Jewelry said...

Oh, you know you are too cute...no matter how the photo turns out!

Mishkat said...

We think the photos are great! Ours usually look like the third photo down - we like to turn away from the camera as soon as mom pushes the button.

Roses and Lilacs said...

My cats are always very cooperative but the dog is a different story. She hates to have a camera pointed at her.

It's definitely a challenge to photograph cats - and even more of a challenge to get two in the same photo. I like to use a clicker pen or something to get their attention. It goes in my left hand while the camera is in my right hand. Click it over your head and hopefully they will both look in the same direction! You have to be quick with the camera!

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos! Our photo sessions are pretty much the same, I never look at the camera unless something is in Moms hand fur me (like cheese!) Scampi is always trying to get in the shot!
Happy Monday!

OMG, did you have to remind me? I have been trying to replace a photo of my daughter and I just cannot get her to cooperate! I mean, aren't 3 year olds supposed to hold still for 5 minutes while Momma keeps clicking with the camera?

And the girls are always cute, no matter what!

Grace said...

I think those photos are just fine...

memoriesforlifescrapbooks said...

I think most of my photos of Harley are blurry...he can't be still for a second!

Sparkle said...

I love posing! Almost as must as I love to STOP posing as soon as my human gets her camera! But it's all good - it keeps her on her toes.

Marg said...

WE think all those pictures are good. We are also very hard to get good pictures. The minute mom pushes the button on the camera, we walk away. But we think those are really cute pictures of Isabelle and Angel. Love the one of them looking different directions. Have a great week.

The OP Pack said...

Ha Rooo - much the same as yours. Phantom does not like the camera AT ALL and will do everything to look saway. TD seems to be learning from him. And little Ciara doesn't do too badly but she just moves so fast it is hard to get a clear pic.

But as you say, no matter what, you all looks so adorable all the time.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

We goats show our displeasure by showing our behinds.....

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Just about like that ;-)

Mom often says something about thank dog fur digital...

Great job woo three!

PeeEssWoo: Hi Sadie!

Ann said...

Duke's photo sessions are pretty much about the same as yours. I have to take a LOT of pictures just to get one good one. I think you 2 did very well, at least you both looked in the same direction

Stacy Hurt said...

It is imperative that our biped understand just WHO is in control here. We don't DO photo sessions, we are gorgeous always and have no need for photographic evidence to that fact.

That said, that woman has managed on a few occasions after basically DRUGGING us with much nip has been able to procure a couple shots of us sleeping. But we remind her we know EXACTLY what she's doing by keeping one eye slightly cracked. That way when she might move in for an extreme close up we can move instantly and blow the whole thing!

Good on ya for being such good sports. Our woman get's peeved when we show our displeasure by widdling in her favorite shoes, or anywhere else we damn well please!

Serves her right!

Love,
Ms. Stella O'Houligan

The Island Cats said...

Our photo shoots are a lot like yours...one of us will look good, but the other will blink or look away or something. Mom gets pretty frustrated, but she manages to work with whatever we give her...

PurrPrints said...

my kitties never cooperate either - whenever they are doing something cute and i snag the camera they immediately stop and come to investigate what I'm doing.

The Army of Four said...

Ha roo roo roo! Great work, girls! I VERY seldom cooperate for photos - it's against my nature. Sometimes Mom tricks me with tasty treats, though. Terribly unfair, but not a bad payoff!
Tail wags,

Oh I like the one with Sadie!

Lily said...

Ladies, I've missed you and Mommy! And yes, you are always cute/adorable ... you know you have many fans, I can tell!

Au and Target said...

It's an eternal struggle where Au and Target get to torture us! You look really cute in these pics, though. All posed and pretty.

Lin said...

Well, being that you got both cats within 20 feet of each other with no hissing and spitting, I'd say that was a successful shoot! Well done, Mommeh. :)

Cinnamon-Girl said...

Our photo sessions go much the same way! But you're right - you're all still cute! Love, Moon

TiLT said...

yup - good thing they are cute regardless of direction :)

storybeader said...

those were so cute! Even Sadie got in the act!

Ji said...
