Photographing Mika, Scarlett and Peach.. three of the most loved cats in Adelaide

Sophie had one special request for her photoshoot.. that I captured the super special bond between Kate (who absolutely hates the camera) and her soulmate Mika, their cat.. and perhaps could we try to get a photograph of the five of them together! She didn’t know if either would be possible, especially given they were bringing their cats the the studio, and unfamiliar environment!

We allowed the girls to wander around the studio for ten minutes or so until they relaxed a bit.. and then we watched to see what helped calm them (and Kate too!), and photographed all the unfolding and their personalities shining through (especially grumpy Peach!)

This is the result..

The beginning

This photograph of Flee and I was taken by my boss at Danae Studio back in 2012 while he was helping me improve my pet photography skills. Not long after I was building my portfolio and by November I had decided to road trip with my camera and so Bitsa Bernard (then Kirstie M) was formed.

Although I have created my own style over the years, I still implement the techniques that I learned that afternoon so this photograph will always be one of the most special images I have as it represents the beginning of my pet photography career.

Images in the above slideshow of Shane, Flee and I were taken by Bitsa Bernard Photographer, Dani.
