As I mentioned in my Christmas post, we went to Turku, Finland, in November so that Izaak and Lorelai could earn their International Champion titles. As we did when we’ve gone to shows in Helsinki and Tallinn, we travelled by ferry. And what’s the best thing about ferry travel? The boarding photos!
Okay, so…Rory and Zak are far more photogenic than we are, but to be fair…we have to schlep all the luggage whilst they chill in the stroller!
You may remember last year when I bundled everyone up in the Strollercat stroller and got professional photos taken of everybody. Well, they had another photo shoot last month, so I took everyone back in for another round of photos.
I mainly wanted to get photos of Angel and Alfred, because they don’t go to shows, and we don’t have as many opportunities to have them photographed. Angel actually did really well, considering she doesn’t get out much.
Lorelai, of course, is a natural.
She’s been getting professional photos taken since she was 11 weeks old!
Still, even a seasoned poser can take an slightly awkward photo every once in a while.
Izaak is pretty good at the posing thing, too.
*Sigh* At least, when he isn’t throwing the Singapura Stink-Eye around.
And then there’s Freddy. He is an excellent poser.
Except…when he isn’t. It’s really hit or miss with this silly boy! Still, I would rather have goofy photos of them than no photos at all. It’s funny…the last time we got the photos done, we had just four cats (because Zak hadn’t joined us yet)…and this time, we also had only four cats. SOMEday I hope we’ll be able to a photo of the whole family of five.
Yesterday, I got a Facebook message from Madelene Jonsson, the photographer who took the marvelous photos of Izaak and Lorelai that I posted on Wednesday (and macroed yesterday). She wanted to show me her ad for the next cat show where she’ll be taking photographs. And look who is prominently featured! I am so proud of our little girl! Thank you, Madelene!
So I have been an avid fan and follower of LOLcats since they first appeared on the internet in 2007 (Yeah. Think about that. They’ve been around for 12 years already). I love them. So, when I got the most recent professional photos of Lorelai and Izaak (taken by Madelene Jonsson at the Örebro show in January), I couldn’t help but notice that some of them were infinitely LOLcat-able.
Rory had two photos that fell into two classic meme categories.
But Izaak had the best shots of all. Taking two shots together, it made a classic “I Love to Sing-a” meme, only made stronger by the fact that it stars an actual Singa!
