Sparkles' Kitten Photo Shoot | Fallbrook Photographer

June 03, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This week we added a new member to our family, 5 week old Calico kitten, Sparkles (a typical name when you have your 5 year old daughter name the kitten, lol)! We found her online from a lady who fosters kittens. Sparkles' story was a unique one! A lady had left her house and a poor kitten fell off of the roof! The lady went up and a mama cat had just given birth to a litter of 5 kittens up there but was nowhere to be found. Night was coming and was getting cold so they brought the kittens down afraid they wouldn't make it thru a cold night. Umbilical cords were still attached to the 1 day old kittens. The kitten that fell sadly didn't make it and another kitten from the litter passed the next day. So there were 3, 2 girls and 1 boy. They were given to a woman who has fostered kittens before. She started bottle feeding them from day 2 and nursed them to health as they grew. We were so fortunate to find Sparkles as she was the last one to be adopted. Her brother and sister had found homes the day before. 

She is such a sweet, loving kitten who LOVES to fall asleep in your arms or on your chest. She's getting more and more playful every day and just learning to jump (only about 6" high right now). She's adjusted so well here and Scarlett is absolutely in love with her baby! She refers to herself as "mommy" when talking to Sparkles, hehe! 

Naturally, as a newborn photographer, I wanted to bring her into the studio for her "newborn" session. I had so many ideas but Sparkles was a pretty TOUGH baby client. She did not want to stand or be next to the flowers, did NOT want to look at me or the camera at all (except once) and took a very long time to get her to sleep, haha! So a lot of my ideas went out the window and she is SO tiny that baskets and wraps pretty much engulfed her. But after quite a bit of time, we did manage to get a couple of set-ups. And I LOVE the ones with her and her "mommy", Scarlett. So here is our sweet Sparkles...
