Let me go ahead and start off saying that if you want a way longer session than usual and a gazillion photos of your pets, invite me into your home for a session! My original timeline went straight out the window as soon as I got to Sara and Mike's home in Sewickley and found out that "taking a few photos with the cats" turned into "Rachel is going to take 10,000 photos of the cats because Rachel is obsessed with cats!" But let's be real, if you had the chance to play with 10 cats, 2 dogs, 2 birds, and a mouse, you would be in fur-baby heaven, too! I had a blast!
These adorable felines were so nice and playful that I snapped away and took some super adorable engagement pictures with cats! After getting them to pose with Sara's gorgeous engagement ring (which wasn't the easiest, but birds definitely like it), we took Ellie and BJ (the canines) outdoors to get some quick photos of them in the backyard before we walked down the road to a boat dock to catch the sunset over the Ohio River.
Sara and Mike are absolutely adorable together and so natural. I didn't have to pose them and their love for one another is very visible in this collection of photographs. I cannot wait for their wedding in October (and their pups are even going to make an appearance)!!! Thank you Sara and Mike for inviting me into your home and letting me spend so much time with your animals!
