LOL! That are fantastic pics, jesse's mommy! Too cute!:cloud9: What a good girl to pose so sweetly in her Paddy's Day ensemble.:lovestruck:

Tough March challenge ahead.:D Think Jesse's going to be hard to top for the wearing o' the green..:highfive:

jesse's mommy
March 1st, 2007, 05:15 PM
hehe, I just love my patient little baby. She got lots of cookies for this one. Daddy was present for this photoshoot and all he could say was "I can't believe you, I can't believe you..." :laughing: (Wait until you see what I have planned for her Easter pictures -- it involves bunny ears. :evil: )

So, does no one else have any pictures?

marko
March 1st, 2007, 05:29 PM
Excellent! :thumbs up

But how do I get my cats involved? Hmmm it'll come...

Say anyone have 10,000 green Jelly beans? :shrug:

I've been thinking about it and I really have nothing patty-ish around here... :o Maybe... oooo Maybe I have something... :D

jesse's mommy
March 1st, 2007, 07:42 PM
Each of those pieces she is wearing cost $1 each at Target. They are putting their Easter stuff up now and I'm plotting.

hazelrunpack
March 1st, 2007, 07:45 PM
he he he I'm sure the Pack would love to indulge in a little corned beef and cabbage, but that's about all of the Irish we'll likely ever have around here... and the gaseous result from letting them partake would drive us out of the house! :evil:

They won't don anything green, either...they keep insisting they're English, not Irish setters! If they were Irish, they'd all be redheads...so I guess they're right! :laughing: :shrug: What's a mother to do when the kids just won't cooperate? :D

Too bad about the light......that's an excellent shot of them standing together with their green bandanas. :lovestruck: Nelly takes good pics lying on the bed....take one of her with the bandana around her head. :D

Frenchy

Nelly takes good pics lying on the bed...

You're right ! So Monsieur le chat didn't care.....

Frenchy
March 2nd, 2007, 02:20 PM
And Nelly was wondering why I was bugging her while she was trying to get some rest, I was out of St-Patrick's bandana... at least it's green ! :D

Frenchy

Great pics Marko. I love how the orange fur stands out against the green background (almost the same colour as your goatee:laughing: )

Prin
March 9th, 2007, 12:56 PM
Great pics, Marko! Where do you get the backgrounds? Mine are always stale paint or my duvet.:D

That leprechaun looks so happy to be with your kitties. Zak and Zig are so pretty. :cloud9:

I'm surprised nobody has taken their pets with Guinness or something. :laughing:

TeriM
March 9th, 2007, 01:20 PM
LOL Marko, those are some great pics :thumbs up . How on earth do you get them to cooperate so well? Something special added to that catnip perhaps :D .

cpietra16
March 9th, 2007, 01:27 PM
OMG...Marko, do you have a photo studio in your home. great pictures. And people are right....you do start to look like your pet after awhile...:D very handsom:D :D

marko
March 9th, 2007, 03:39 PM
Thanks for the compliments everyone. Actually we often use very cheap props in these shots. I do have a few 'backgrounds' - but they are all just pieces of material that I purchased from a fabric seller years ago.

But the true secret in getting the cats to co-operate is Hypnosis. I just bore them into submission by talking nonsense to them.

OK OK the real secret....you need 2 people and Carmy (wifey) deserves half the credit for sure. She pets them until they are almost in a coma-like state. THEN she calls me to do all the easy work.

marko

Shamrock
March 9th, 2007, 04:23 PM
Marko, those are just stunning photos! Beautifully done!:highfive:
Zig and Zac are both so gorgeous:lovestruck: Green is their colour for sure!:cloud9:

How I admire your photgraphy skills and you make it sound so easy.:confused:

Must try your hypnosis technique suggestion with my kitties, Marko. I have great success with humans in this area.:D

Left my camera at my daughters.. but getting it this weekend. Will try to get a couple of the crew for the St.Catty's display.:)
