The team at Cats Like Us came to me with the idea to do a take on the “awkward family photo” for their holiday postcard. We did a shoot in my studio with the shop owners Julie Ann and Andrew and their sales associate Meagan but since the store is called Cats Like Us, the cats had to be involved too! I had photographed them before and they did not enjoy the experience. So to make things easier on them I came over to Julie Ann and Andrew’s house to photograph their cats as they lounged around their home. Since all we needed were good shots of their cute faces, this approach worked well!
