A Cozy Pet Photoshoot

Hello, friends!

I recently got to housesit again, and you know what that means – cute pet pictures and pretty nature photography! This time I also experimented with some cozy indoor photography and alllll the golden hour light. Enjoy the warmth of these photos in a cold season! Especially if you’re a cat person, read on. 😉

Hunter the cat loved to sit in this bar stool chair thingy day after day and soak up the sun.

Ooh I love the dramatic lighting in this one. Cat’s eyes are so pretty, aren’t they?

Observing his kingdom.

Are you a cat person or a dog person? I’m honestly not a super big animal person in general, but I definitely prefer cats to dogs. They’re generally much calmer.

Hunter’s a sweet cat, although most of the time he was only cuddly and affectionate when he wanted me to give him food. :’D

A noble black and white portrait.

So cozy. I love the “cat loaf” pose when they tuck their paws underneath them. 🙂

Shadow also spent a lot of the day sleeping. I tried to capture the glowy light coming through the red curtains, but this is as close as I got. You can see the reflection (and a toy mouse) on the coffee table, though.

More light photography – it looks like the kids made these lovely suncatchers from colored glue. So pretty and fun!

It never gets old taking simple pictures of dead weeds with a wide-open 50mm lens at golden hour.

Ooh I love this one! I found a charming little twig nest in this bush – and later a tiny cup nest on the ground too.

One of my favorites. Ah, I absolutely love the lighting and softly blurred background in this photo.

Hunter went exploring outside until he found a stack of mattresses to rest on.

A series of photos of Hunter again surveying his domain. He has his eyes on you, folks. Nothing shall escape his notice.

Might be my favorite photo of Hunter in this post. It’s so clear and warm and pretty despite the slightly unusual background.

We’ll end with some indoor photography from when I couldn’t resist capturing the beautiful sunlight patterns on the wall one evening.

Do boys live in this house? Hint: this picture. 😉

I will never get over the beauty of sunlight on walls and floors. ❤

Here’s a last peaceful shot for today (ft. a Spiderman mask). So warm and golden.

Ah. *happy sigh* That’s it for this week! I enjoyed putting this post together as it’s awfully gray and rainy outside right now. I hope it brought a little bit of light into your day as well! ❤

Which photo(s) did you like best? Are you a cat or a dog person?

Thanks so much for reading, my friends, and have a lovely day!

  1. I would say I am definitely a dog person 🙂 Such great photos! I love the second one the most because of your use of the shadows and the natural light to make such a cool contrast for each side of the cat’s face! Well done!!!

  2. I’m not a cat person at all. I really don’t like cats. I’m also not a dog person but I prefer dogs to cats. Nevertheless, these photos are amazing – as always🌻.
    The sun catchers are really pretty. Especially the flowers🌼.
    I love the soft blurriness too😍!
    Those three pictures of hunter are just chefs kiss👌🏼. He looks so good.
    I do think that boys Iive in the house. But it could also be girls who are spiderman fans🤔.
    Once again, these are amazing🌼🌻

    1. Yeah, I feel like people hate cats more often than dogs, and I can see why.
      I know, I love the suncatchers!
      Hehe thank you! He’s a model kitty. 😛
      Good guess – and honestly, you’re probably right on both, I dunno. XD Both boys and girls live there.
      Thank you so much, Sabrina! I’m glad you liked the pictures!

  3. I’ve always been owned by cats. Although I like all animals. I like that cats don’t need to take a dump outside or beg for a walk. Although unlike a dog cats can be major assholes. They are your frenemy whereas the dog is your best friend.

    1. Yes, I agree – cats are much lower maintenance than dogs. Mhm, cats definitely can have annoying personalities though. Every once in a while you find one with the sunny personality of a dog and the easy care of the rest of their kind – those are winners!

  4. I love these photos (especially when they’re loafs); they’re both so cute! I’m generally not a pet person (mostly from trauma from childhood), but there are a select few of friends’ pets that I’ll allow to climb over me or utilize me like a chair.

  5. Ahh, so pretty! It’s been rainy today, so these definitely brightened my day. As for me, I’m definitely a cat person. I’m very selective in which kinds of dogs I like, but I love all kinds of cats. And KITTENS!!!
