There’s something about Tosha

I know you’ve probably already seen her in our pictures here and there, but right now I want to properly introduce a member of the family – our cat Tosha.

Tosha is an experimental cat, meaning that every time we need to experiment with the new equipment we get, Tosha becomes our subject. It doesn’t happen that often nowadays, but I guess a long time ago when Mike was just getting into photography (and I wasn’t around yet) Tosha underwent quite a lot. The result of it is that she just cannot stand being photographed! In preparation for every photo shoot we take out all the cameras to check them, change lenses, put the new batteries in. Tosha can sit and watch us, but the second we point a camera towards her she turns away making it impossible to photograph her. How does she even know that I’m trying to focus on her? It’s still a mystery to me.

That’s why I’m so proud of this shot: it was the first sunny day after the rains and Tosha came up to the balcony to bask in the sun. I think she was just too lazy to turn away from me :)


As a side note, we had beautiful and fun maternity photo shoot yesterday in San Francisco and we’ll be posting pictures from it in just a couple of days!
