What do you get when you combine a beautiful home on the beach in Humarock, the perfect lighting and seven gorgeous cats? You get the photographic dream.
Bonnie and Steve won an auction at Scituate Animal Shelter for a photo shoot with me and we got together the weekend before last. When I arrived, I knew it was going to be a special experience. They live so close to the ocean that their front walkway is lightly covered in sand blown in from the main beach, making me want to remove my shoes and stand barefoot, eyes closed, face towards the sky. Floor to ceiling windows with a view of the ocean graced almost every room in the house allowing for the most dreamy light I could ever hope for. It reflected off of the walls in such a way that it made many of the images look as if I were shooting in heaven itself.
With hearts as grand as their expansive view, Bonnie and Steve have given a home to seven very lucky cats. Adopted, found as strays, taken in due to health reasons and ferals coaxed indoors, Opie, Andy, Carrie, Lily, Pee Wee, Smokey and Orange Kitty will never have to worry, fight or scrounge again.
It’s always a pleasure to meet people like Bonnie and Steve, who give without expecting anything in return. Thank you both so much for all you’ve done to make the lives of your clan trouble free and for all you do to help those around you. I hope that you enjoy your images as much as I enjoyed taking them.
