When Stephanie contacted me to set up a photo session of her 16-year-old cat, Irie, I couldn’t wait to meet him and catch his mug with my camera. Alas, a few days before our scheduled session, Stephanie let me know Irie had suddenly passed away. Despite her sorrow over losing her boy Irie, she wanted to keep our photo session so that I could capture her Himalayan cat, Ghandi. He’s not only a real looker, but a great hugger as well…as you’ll see at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
