Willow

Everyone, meet Willow. Willow, this is everyone!

Before the parents and child were ready for my family shoot last week, I couldn’t resist snapping a few frames of their adorable cat, Willow. While I’m not really a cat person (I’m ridiculously allergic to them), this shot almost has me converted. Those bright eyes and cute little nose are just irresistable!

It seems lately like I’ve been a little schizophrenic with my posting…HDR urbex, to child portraits…architecture, to pet photography. This is all part of me trying to expand my photographic horizons. Trying new things is extremely valuable, and I really love sharing all these different types of photos with you guys…hope you’re enjoying the ride as much as I am 🙂

Heath, another great shot! She looks so serious though. 🙂

I despise cats, but this is a good shot of one 🙂

Right on, I am emailing this one to my wife! We are both big cat fans.

Nailed the focus dude, great shot

Wonderful! You were able to capture her expression of ‘tolerating the human’ while you were shooting this! I’m enjoying your diverse captures of late.
ps – I KNEW it was going to be furry adorableness.
pps – pfffft to Mike’s comment about cats. 😉

Love the shallow DOF. Great shot, Heath!

Very cool! Cats are adorable, just a pain in the rear! Nice DoF in this shot, Heath!

Wow, cute overload. What a great capture!

We love cats, they run our house! GREAT capture here Heath, I love the composition and the facial expression you grabbed in Willow here! What a beautiful cat, and a gorgeous photo. I’d say you are brilliant at whatever you tackle, photographically, my friend!

I think it’s cool that you are “all over the place” a year ago I was just a landscape photographer, now I like urban and still life too!!!!

Awesome shot!

Purrr-fect shot of our little girl Heath!

Scott Frederick - February 16, 2011 - 11:12 am

Willow is cute. Great sharp focus on the eyes!

Chris DeAngelis - February 16, 2011 - 11:18 am

Willow’s eyes are awesome and I’m not just saying that as an optometrist… 😉 Great shot!

Tim Gibson - February 16, 2011 - 11:54 am

Keep up the change, makes each post unexpected. Cats always look up to no good!

Mark Blundell - February 16, 2011 - 2:59 pm

Thats awesome – great focus and light and Willow looks SO cute. I know cats can be a bit hard to shoot – I’ve tried with Viveca’s Jasper – he just won’t sit still!

Heath-

Baxter, Bailey, Bliss & Murphy, who allow me and the family to share the house send their regards to Willow, they think she is an attractive babe…

Do continue diversifying and sharing it with us.

Scott Wood - February 16, 2011 - 6:27 pm

Love those eyes.

Bob Lussier - February 16, 2011 - 8:32 pm

This image capture the feline personality perfectly. It exudes the cat’s “I don’t need you. I’ll call you when I want you” attitude. 🙂

Love it.
