This session cost her $ 175 Canadian ($ 123 American).

The photos became very popular and they wanted to know who made them.

“We did the session in January, on windy noon. The weather was stormy, but the sun came out just in time. I hung out with Kazmir and its owners at a local park, where I knew there would be some lovely quiet places that we could use. Kazmir is used to going out and wearing a harness on a leash. We wanted him to feel safe and comfortable for his true personality to emerge. So I photoshopped the strap and harness, so no one would know I was wearing it. ”

The session took place in a park in the area

Sarah said the cat was “a wonderful model with a charming personality” who loved to explore.

Basically, I followed him wherever he wanted to go like he was his paparazzi. We would guide him in the direction we wanted him to go and then I would go ahead and duck down to take the photos as he got closer. I live on Vancouver Island and almost all of my pet photos are in the wild, so I never lack for good sites or backgrounds. ”

According to the photographer, it was very easy to portray Kazmir

“The park we went to has a lovely area with mossy rocks to sit on, and across the street is the beach. We decided to use both locations to have more variety. I love to simplify it and be as close as possible to the level of the subject. I want them to be calm and happy. ”

In the park, there were great places to take photos

So Sarah spent a lot of time crawling or lying on the grass taking pictures of the cat. “It seems to me that cats pose naturally, we let him find places to sit in the area with the best light and then he portrayed him from various angles, approaching me. This usually lasts a few seconds until they tire and move. Luckily I am fast, and a few seconds is all I need. ”

Sarah crawled across the floor to take the best pictures of the cat

“It is difficult for the cat to look at the camera, so we use toys, noises and their owners bring goodies. Shaking the candy bag is not to be underestimated. ”

The user said she loved paying for the photoshoot

Sarah loves her job. He started using his camera when he adopted his dog Walter 11 years ago and has not stopped since then.

“At first it was a hobby, but 2 years ago I was able to dedicate myself to it full time. My muses are my dogs Walter and Rupert, that’s why the business bears their names (Wally & Roops). ”

“From puppies that don’t stop to stoic elders, from cats that go from everything to llamas or chickens, they are all incredible and I love capturing their personality. Also the interaction with their owners, we all love animals, so we spent the sessions sharing stories and laughing. ”
