I am an animal advocate and pet photographer in Los Angeles who uses photography to help animals get adopted.

For this series, I photographed black cats against a black background to emphasize their beauty and showcase their personalities.

Black cats have the lowest adoption rates and the highest euthanasia rates, in part because they typically don’t photograph well. I wanted to show that it is possible to get beautiful pictures of black cats. I hope my photos inspire people to adopt black cats and to volunteer for their local shelter.

The cats featured below are from West Los Angeles Animal Services and Milo’s Sanctuary.
