I feel sorry for anyone who either works in a portrait studio this time of year or has undertaken pet photography for the Christmas season. I thought it would be a cute and fun activity to get our cat, Mruczka, all dolled up and ready for Christmas, this being her first one. Bad idea. From the get-go she hated it. Even when we bribed her with treats.
She now attacks the Santa hat whenever she sees it and is pensive about receiving treats or when we put her on the couch (where the first photo shoot took place). Eventually she fell asleep and we got the hat on her head. But then her eyes were closed! And I had to shoot on a high ISO with a small point & shoot (she also now does not like my D-SLR because of the first shoot).
