Have you heard that saying before? Me too. But, I didn't really get the phrase until I went to my friend Errika's house this past Sunday to try to photograph her daughter Sydney (21 months), her neighbor Alyssa (23 months) and her god-daugther Madison (3 years) all at once. There, the phrase came to life like never before. In another post, I'll show you some of the sweet individual photos I caught. But, here I'll showcase a few photo montages that must be viewed as a set to be fully appreciated. And, to really give you a definition of what cat herding is all about.
The first set of shots we tried were in Errika's living room in front of the fireplace. Watch the action - or the lack of the action stopping - or the fact that no one shot shows all three sweetly smiling and facing forward. They are sweet and special in their own way, but, well - just look:
Sydney, Alyssa, Madison
After trying indoors, we headed out in front of the house. Here's another good set of action:
Alyssa, Madison, Sydney
And, finally, this great montage:
Alyssa, Sydney, Madison
Herding cats has to be very similar. But, they're cute, yes?
