I love doing pet portraits for people. Animals have just as much personality as people do; it’s fun to capture what makes the pet special to the owner. My friend Christine had recently brought these two furballs home and wanted to capture the memory. I love cats because, even though they are solitary, there always seems to be some sort of secret society of cats.

When dogs get together, they tend to horse around after establishing the pecking order; when cats get together, there may be some friction, but they all tend to stare at you, as if passing some sort of judgment.
