Category / Cat Photography

Cat photography is the fine art of capturing your best feline friend in their natural environment. As you likely already know, cats can be a challenge to photograph. Cats are almost always reluctant photography subjects. Since every cat is completely unique, there’s no one-size-fits-all trick to photographing cats. One thing we always try to do is to get the cats somewhat comfortable, first with us, and then with our gear. But even when we do, it’s entirely likely that Art will wind up playing the part of a convenient temporary scratching post. He’s ok with that, though, as long as Lara gets the shot.

Lara Grauer Photography has been photographing cats in and around the Seattle area since 2008. We have photographed many beloved pet cats and cats that have been recently adopted. We have also photographed foster and rescue cats to give them a better shot at finding permanent homes.

    Calendar Models – Cami and Tammy

    This is the last of the cat models. Cami and Tammy are sisters who were – thankfully – adopted together! These two are really sweet together. They cuddle and play just like sisters should. They are definitely indoor cats, but Cami got to take a special trip out the the back yard for this photo…

    Calendar Session – Rajah!

    How can it be late January, and I didn’t post Rajah! This cutie was fun to shoot. Did you get your calendar yet? It’s not too late – and it will still support Pawsitive Alliance! Pawsitive Alliance’s mission is to help end the killing of adoptable dogs and cats in Washington by increasing adoptions, supporting spay and…

    Calendar Model – Hello, Josie!

      Josie is an awesome family cat. She lives with two little girls, and they get along fabulously! She’s happy to let them give her lots of love and affection!     Josie has moved to different houses again and again, but she rolls with the changes, and stays loyal to her tribe.    …

    Calendar Model – Meet Billie Goat

      Billie Goat chose her owners – they didn’t choose her. She was a stray cat in the alley behind their house in Baltimore. One night she was in the back yard of the house, and was offered some food. From there on out, she was hooked.     Billie came around every day to…

    Calendar Session – Cute Cupcake!

      Cupcake is one of those kitties that doesn’t have to do anything to capture you with her beauty. Her fur is perfect, her eyes are beautiful, and her body moves with grace.     Cupcake lives with three young children, so she has learned to tolerate quite a bit of chaos. She has found…

    Calendar Session – This is Chuy

      Chuy is an OUTDOOR cat! In every sense of the word. This cat thrives outside! Chuy’s owner couldn’t guarantee that she would be able to have him in the house when I arrived for our session, but luckily, she was able to confine this hunter to the house before I got there.     When…

    Calendar Session – Meet Pocket!

      Pocket is a sweet little cat with lots of fur. Weighing in at just 6 pounds, she earned her name because she can practically fit in your pocket! When I arrived at her house, she wanted nothing to do with staying inside. Her owner assured me that if we let her out, she wouldn’t…

    Calendar Session – Earl

      Earl picked an incredibly rainy day for his portrait session. Often times for cats, it doesn’t matter. We hang around inside to keep them contained. But for Earl, outside is where it’s at. But lucky for me, Earl will go along with just about anything. So, when I slid under the table to get…

    Calendar Session – Posy the Scaredy Cat

    Posy is a little shy. She wasn’t all that interested in meeting me at first, but everywhere she could truly hide had been closed off, so she didn’t have a lot of choice. She was sort of ok with me being there after a few minutes, but when I approached with my camera, it was all…

    Calendar Session – Rupert

        Rupert is a sweet cat. He’s laid back, and enjoys being pet. He likes to hang out by the window and watch things go by. Rupert has a sister cat named Misha, who was planning to be in the photos, but her shy nature sent her off into hiding when I arrived.    …
