I focused on Abby Gail, my other cat, most of the time as she is trained to sit and stay (for delicious treats). Gracie surprised me by coming in, sitting, staring at my camera for a minute or two and then left. She was briefly a purrfect model. I’m so pleased to get a wonderful shot of her.
Purrsonal notes: She’s our special needs tripod. She’s approximately 10-1/2 years old. In addition to missing a leg, she suffers from seasonal and food allergies. Overall, she’s a content and happy cat.
Sidenote: I was going to get a portrait of my husband and me; but, I ran out of time as this weekend is my birthday (13th). I will still pursue a portrait of us as it’s been over five years since we got a decent portrait of us together and I’d like one for Christmas.
Here’s the runner-up (alternate):
