Portrait Party Behind The Scenes

As I mentioned in this cupcake post, we recently had to get our portrait taken for a project.  The project is focused on our stuffed animals, “The Family”.  I will make a post about it soon! Here’s how the final turned out.  This is one of our better portraits we have had taken because it’s very Pamela +Matthew with fun, cats, our stuffed family.  Thanks to the photographer Claire for putting this fairy tale setting together.

One of the first things we got asked about is the cat up front.  Everyone wants to know if it’s real.  Of course it is! It’s Xanadu Pluto, our crazy Siamese.  The thing you have to know about Xanadu is she’s a model and loves the spotlight.  In the hour we sat for this portrait, Xanadu basically didn’t move (except once she came back to lick some of the icing off the cupcake).  She lives for attention.

I had to stretch my legs a few times because I can’t bend like I used to.  Xanadu looked over but didn’t move her body.

Yes, this floor is very comfortable.  It will do. WP_20130203_081
No, I think those markers need to be moved.

Xanadu liked the Care Bear crown.

This octopus is not part of our stuffed family but he was a nice gentleman on set.

These guys are part of our family.  They are the Grandpas and they are eating pizza and talking on the telephone here.

Then the shoot was over and the party was thrown into suitcases.
