    Self Portraits

    Thanks to PT, I've realized that after 17 years, I have no pics of me with Tubby. I mean none, nada, zip! So the other day I tried - tried being the operative word here. I gave the camera to Terry and held Tubby. This is the result.


    It's certainly not the best of pics because it looks like I'm holding on to Tubby for dear life, strangling him almost, but I guess it'll have to do for starters. Terry took about 3 or 4, and this is actually the best one, and has been touched up even. So I guess Tubby and I have got some photo sessions to attend in the future. Then once I'm done with Tubby, we'll have to see what we can do with Peanut.

    So do any of you have portraits of you with your sweeties? Ok, so not just portraits, but pics of you and the kitties. I know it's hard because I'm always the one taking the pic, and the self-timer thingy isn't too conducive to cat portraits.

    I think it is a great picture!!!! I have none of me and my cats. And I don't think any would look that good, but I should have some!!! Maybe you will be my inspiration!!!

    I don't really have many of me and Shiloh at all. And I have none with me and Skylar I'm scared of cameras!!

    I will work on setting up the cam on a timer though so I can take one of me and the cats.... after I take a shower and wash my hair that is!

    Awww c'mon Aly, it wouldn't be you if you didn't have puppy drool or spit up on you!

    And I know what you mean Logan. Someone posted a thread a while back that made me realize I have no pics of me and T & P and this is when I finally got around to doing something about it.....only took at least 6 months to a year if I remember right...

    That's a great picture of you and Tubby!

    For our Christmas card last year, we took a picture with David, me, Noah, Noel and Basie...it was a huge ordeal! We had to bribe them with turkey and treats just to come to us so we could grab them for one of about thirty pictures.
    ...RIP, our sweet Gini...

    Debbie, that's a great pic of both you and Tubby. I do have two professional pictures of me and both Storm and Pepper and one of me holding Storm. I also have some non-professional non-digital pics of me with Sunny, Storm, and Pepper. AmberLee took these when she came over for her first visit. I also prefer to be behind the camera taking pictures so that I'm not in them.

    Here's a fairly old picture of me holding both Storm and Pepper. Storm was around 2 and Pepper was 1 at the time. Seconds after the picture was taken, Storm leapt from my arms. You can tell that neither one of them are very happy in this pic.

    That's a wonderful picture Tracey! They both look bright eyed and bushy tailed, and it's cool that storm is standing. I never thought of having it professionally done....have to give that some thought....

    Great pictureS!

    Oh I love these pictures!! I think this is a great idea for a thread. I am going to be daring and post one of me with Andy here. I was trying to get him to pose for a picture a couple of months ago. With Andy you have a window of opportunity that lasts about one minute for a posed picture. This was taken right past that one minute deadline! LOL!


    Here is a candid shot that my husband took of Trevor and me. It looks like I am wearing a furry orange hat! Hope your computers still work after you view this.

    Tracey! It's a great picture of you too, love your hair!! Storm and Pepper do look a bit incecure about the situation, but so very sweet.

    Oh I love this thread. I hate if someone is taking pictures of me but when there is a kitty I always look much more relaxed -I have noticed that with all of you too.

    A kitty in the picture makes us more beautiful



    There is no way to take a picture in which I hold one of my boys. Filou Superwriggler always wriggles himself on my shoulder
