From one "Cat Person" to another
It takes one cat person to know another. My three cats have brought lots of joy and laughter to my life. Chances are, if you are reading this, you know exactly what I mean! Every cat is unique and special in their own way.
Similar to you, I've experienced all the remarks about cats being "aloof", "unsociable" and "unaffectionate" creatures. Most of these comments come from people who have never personally experienced the love and affection that is built on trust from a relationship with a cat.
Cat Photography is a passion of mine because it is fun and extremely rewarding. Through my photos, I get to show them to be the amazing creatures that they are.
Why get me to capture photos of your cat?
My specialty is in Cat Photography because I am a fellow "cat person". Cat people aren't weird or strange, we are just different in the sense that we appreciate the intricate behaviour of cats more than others.
Having completed courses on cat behaviour and building up a niche for cat photography in Sydney, trust me when I say that you need someone who truly understands your cat and appreciates your relationship with them to take your cat's photos.
Cats do what they want when they want. They rarely pose for photos and when they have had enough, it can be difficult convincing them otherwise. Getting beautiful cat portraits is all about building trust and a relationship with the cat you are photographing. It involves lots of patience, huge respect for the cat and their owners and a keen understanding of cat behaviour.
This is where I happily come in...
"The best part about cat photography is once you earn their trust, capturing amazing photos of them comes easy. After they begin to see you as non-threatening, that is when they reveal to their amazing world through their eyes. I love learning about my client's cats and taking the time to build their trust."

"We loved the photoshoot most of all. It was really fun! Wayne was very relaxed as the whole experience was very chilled. The photos just captured his personality in time and his love to be outside."
From Katherine & Chris - Wayne Franklin's Mum & Dad
"At our first session, everything was just so relaxed. Keefe listened to what I was hoping for and then took the time to get to know Caesar. The Photoshoot consisted of Caesar just doing his own thing and was not posed/stressful at all! The second session was even better as Caesar warmed up further."
From Kate - Caesar's Mum
"Keefe understands how cats behave and was patient and understanding while Eubie took her time sniffing around and doing cat things as they do."
From Yuki - Eubie's Mum
"My biggest achievement from any cat photoshoot comes when they begin to feel comfortable and safe with me. Their personalities come through and I get the privilege of capturing the relationship they share with their humans and their love for each other."
From Keefe - Cat Photographer in Sydney
"We absolutely loved the photoshoot with Keefe! I think that Snuggles thoroughly enjoyed it too. It was very relaxed and felt like just any other Saturday afternoon at our home. We were all very comfortable and had lots of fun!"
From Eloise and Hugo - Snuggles' human brother & sister
Not from Sydney but still want Portraits of your cat?
No problem! Since cat families are special to us, we aim to eventually travel around Australia (and the rest of the world) to help cat lovers take beautiful portraits of their cats.
We share a special passion for cats everywhere and would love to meet you and your feline furkid wherever they feel most comfortable. Whether you're based in Brisbane or Noosa in Queensland, Melbourne, Adelaide, or even Canada, do feel free to let us know that you're interested here.
Before we can organise dates to come down for our cat photoshoot, we'd need to confirm at least 5 cat family bookings in your area! Group sign-ups are encouraged!
