Blog photo composition secrets

Ever wonder how I get all of the great photos I post here and on Instagram? This comic pretty much sums it up:

The truth behind all of my photos... Kind of. ;)

Lucky for me, my cats are lazy and photogenic, my camera and I are friends and understand one another, and I’ve enjoyed composing and taking photos for many years.

Shortly after I saw this comic, I stumbled across this post on Instagram. The only thing missing here is a glass of wine! I think Jack and I totally nailed it!

Happy 10th Birthday, Maddie!

I’m a bit of a crazy cat lady and my oldest, Madison, is celebrating a very special birthday tomorrow: DOUBLE DIGITS!

My sweet Maddie will be 10 tomorrow! She hates fireworks, so she kind of detests her birthday, but I’ll try to make it up to her with a long weekend of quality time and some really good treats!

As I did with Jack last year, here is Maddie’s photo show:

Happy birthday Jack!

I’m a pretty crazy cat lady and have tried to keep it under control on this blog… until now.

My little boy cat turned SIX today! He’s got a wild and crazy birthday planned: something fancy for breakfast and dinner, a day of relaxing on the couch, a few trips up and down the stairs and some quality time harassing Madison (his big sister cat), and lots and lots of snuggles with me.

Enjoy this trip down memory lane as I celebrate Jack’s sixth birthday and reminisce on the days when my little fluff ball first came into my life.

I love you, Jackson Cat Coppersmith Szerwo!

Jack the kitten

He started out looking a little devilish. Hence his name: Jack.
After the neighborhood terror at my parent’s house.
