Just because he is the most amazing cat ever, and loves his picture taken.

Very nice. Cute cat. It seems he's used to you pointing the camera at him by now. :photo:

I love that wood texture in the background of the first image.

Cute kiddy. Our Golden Girl (Lizzy) would love to meet her. ;-)

Gorgeous! He looks very regal in the chair.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Love them both. I'm a Cat Person, though my subject is less photogenic and less cooperative. Lionel is a charmer.

The first photo is just a darned good image, whether you had a cat or a human in that chair - good background, good prop, good lighting. The second is intriguing because it looks like he's focused on those floating orbs of light just above his head.

Nice set. I won't get tired of seeing Lionel.

It appears Lionel could be an asset to your studio as an ice breaker and easing tension for some of your clients....

He is just like my daughter and now comes clear up to the camera if he sees me getting it setup for a picture. I'm always saying "woah, step back!" lol
It is hard to believe that is a backdrop that is 5' by 5'. Little did I know small backdrops are horrible at extending, but I've improved those capabilities along the way.

He had a sister at his previous owner, she was very skidish. I've yet to have him around any other cats since, only the fluffy dog. But he could always use a friend!

In his mind, he is royalty. King of the house, even. To be honest, when I captured this picture I was totally shocked and impressed that he posed and it worked.

He is a Bengal, beautiful green eyes, soft velvety fur. I wish there was a way for people to pet him from pictures :D

Thank you, he is a charmer and he knows people just love him. When I setup for a small studio session, I cannot keep him out/off of my backdrops. He thinks he has to try and squeeze UNDER the floor backdrop. Yes, the one I've taped to the actual floor. :wall: I still love him tho.

The first photo I had setup for when my daughter was a newborn. When I turned around he was there and pretty looking so why not! His picture even turned out better than what I had planned for my daughter. I am not a newborn photographer for a reason. The second is Christmas lights :)

He is an asset as long as he stays off of the setup.
But he welcomes clients and they instantly open up. I've never really thought of him as an icebreaker before but that is a good point !
