When I was asked to photograph Dotty, her owner wanted me to just spend some time with her first, and get to know her. I was delighted because this meant hanging out by the pool, bonding with this sweet little kitty. She was very independent, and had a hard time tolerating the camera. Her age made photographing a little difficult, she was very fragile, and I could tell she would get tired and needed space. However, I could not be mad; this gave me a little time to take a nap in the sun! Did I mention Dotty's owner is a stylist; therefore, Dotty got a nice new haircut for her photo shoot. She really is so cute.
