Christmas Cat Outtakes

Anyone who has ever tried to get a ‘good’ picture of their pet knows the struggle involved. You end up with a flip-book’s worth of head bobble photos, a few grumpy ‘tush first’ pics, and about fifty more before you get the one. And if we’re being honest, more often than not, the ‘one’ is just the ‘one that doesn’t look angry’. This year we decided to produce our Christmas cards in-house, with the cover and inside photos being our friendly famous ghosts of Aquassure. These spirits of Christmas Present put on more than a good fight for a couple different photo shoots, all in an attempt to get the right pictures. Here are a few of our favourite outtakes, illustrating our creative process. Merry Christmas!

The Christmas costume theme didn’t really work out. Emma isn’t a big sweater fan and Miro has the attention span of a peanut, plus the stubborn attitude of an ox. Once he knows you want him to look somewhere, forget about it. Because the friendly elf costume with matching hat wasn’t quite working, we put Miro in his regular sweater (he’s a chilly boy) and attempted a festive photo shoot elsewhere!

Besides the sassy grin, everything started out great.

An artistic nod to the consumerism and overindulgence of Christmas today. Also: he stuffed too many cat treats in his mouth at once, and started to choke on them.

Don’t worry, he’s just fine. For those curious, yes he regularly wears his little green sweater. Miro’s never been voluminous in the fur department and even now that he’s got a full coat he does need a little extra help in the winter, or he shivers. The photo shoot produced a couple good pictures and a healthy myriad of shots that we feel illustrate exactly what it’s like to photograph a cat! Merry Christmas everyone, and a Happy New Year!
