Cat lover and photographer Lucy Schultz has been fostering kittens and volunteering at the local shelter for most of her life, but she has never had one to call her own since she was a little girl. Until recently. Lucy and her partner for three years, Steven, became financially stable, so they decided to bring a new life to their family. After spending months in search of “the one,” they have settled for a 5-month-old orange and white male at SoulDog Rescue in Colorado. When they brought the little furball home, they were so happy, they decided to organize a photo shoot. It wasn’t, however, a pet-owner shoot you’d expect!
The couple really got into it. Eventually, Lucy and Steven went through every beat of the traditional birthing photoshoot, going as far as “breastfeeding.” They even wrote a text that’s only appropriate: “On 1/10/18 we welcome our first baby kitten, a neutered male DLH,” Lucy commented the images. “He is 22″ long and weighed 6 pounds 7 oz. He is already eating solid food. Name to be announced. We are so in love.”
