I traveled up to Edmonds the other day to help my friend Heather bake cupcakes. Well, it was more like me snacking on yummy goodies and watching her make them.

While I was there, she introduced me to her cats, one of which loved having his picture taken. No need to tell me twice! I took a break from cupcake sampling, grabbed my camera and photographed Hamish, a handsome little guy with the bluest eyes I've ever seen.

Doesn't he look like he should be on a cover of Cat Fancy? ;)

Not only is he a good looking cat, he's also handy in the kitchen. He was watching Heather closely to make sure all of the cupcakes were meeting his high standards.

Here's a sneak peek of a beautiful cupcake masterpiece, baked and designed by Heather:

I'll post more yummy creations soon...

family time!

Check out the adorable family I had the pleasure of photographing over the weekend:

I photograph a lot of families with young kids, so it was a fun change to work with adult kids! It was great that they were up for a bunch of fun shots and didn't mind walking around to different areas during the session. At one point we were down at the neighborhood park, trying to get a shot with Charlotte (the family pup), but she was pretty distracted. You should have seen me behind the camera...I was jumping up and down, clapping to get her to look at the camera. I think the rest of the family was laughing at me in this picture!

Thanks again Kneifel family! I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Bella did not like being in my studio, but I managed to get a couple shots before she scampered away. I love her gorgeous green eyes!

I did some Photoshop experimentation and ended up with this fun design.
I'm thinking they would make fun note cards for pet owners.
Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in!
