I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon photographing amazing illustrator Lily Seika Jones and her two lovely cats. It was challenging to light the studio and fake the sunlight coming in. A lot of small trees right outside the window made it hard to place lights. Also... cats won't stop for your photo! It was tricky but a lot of fun to get them in the right spot.
