Emily and Lloyd are cat people, and I was told that there would be three cats present at June’s newborn shoot, but that I would likely see only one as the others are skittish. HOWEVER, I appear to be like a calm Cat Pied Piper of Durham, as when I arrive, I became flocked with cats (and with Bongo, in particular, the black and white tuxedo cat who I swear is a distant relative of my own cat Buckles). Anyway, there were three cats, all of whom were fluffy and all of whom I petted with great joy in between photographing the lovely miss June, newborn extraordinaire. Note her incredible tomato hat (knitted by her mom). June is crazy cute (takes after her parents who are just wonderful!), and she is one of the most peaceful babies I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. She only half-cried kind of vaguely once at the very end of her session. The rest of the time she was super chill, sometimes awake, sometimes asleep. I attribute her success to the fluffy presence of the cats somehow… always watching over her, guarding her… gently dusting her, everyone else, and all they see with cat hair. A truly fluffily adorable household.
