Wordless Wednesday – When Your Photo Shoot Takes An Unexpected Turn

An Unexpected Surprise

I didn’t plan to include Magellan in this photo – but sometimes, the day brings unexpected surprises your way!

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

When Your Photo Shoot Takes An Unexpected Turn

When you live with pets, life is an adventure. Your days never quite go as expected. I have found this to be particularly true whenever I am working on projects that involve creating something special and photographing them for my blog.

When I’m on a photo shoot, I always try to take the most professional shots possible – but sometimes, you have to roll with the punches, especially when you live with a particularly curious cat who always wants to be where the action is!

This is particularly true whenever I have a new recipe to create and share!

Recently I had the pleasure of reviewing fellow blogger Nuccia Ardagna’s wonderful cookbook, Going Against The Grain Italian Style – A Gluten-Free Life Guide And Recipe Book for Staying Healthy and Eating Amazingly. The recipes looked amazing and my husband and I could not resist making the Homemade Soft Amaretti (Almond) Cookies!

Magellan The Cookie Inspector

Every single cookie on this rack passed our self-appointed Quality Assurance Inspector’s thorough examination!

Of course, Magellan – who has never whiffed anything like the aroma of almond extract – was captivated by our cookies! He just knew we were baking something special for him! He absolutely refused to leave the kitchen table while the cookies were cooling off and insisted in being in the feature shots. He stood guard over the cookies the entire time and made sure that no one swiped a cookie while he was on watch (although – truth be told – that was the least of our worries!)

So – what do I do when a situation like this arises? I make the most of it! I have fun. I take the “professional” shots. I take the impromptu photos. And – at the end of the day – I do my best to merge the two and create a unique story that only I can share!

    I love how it looks like he’s posing! I often have similar visitors to my photo-shoots, but they seem to always be turned in the most un-flattering directions!

    I am SO behind on my commenting. Trying to catch up and stop being so forgetful (like forgetting to post Cat Thursday three times in the past month. doh!).

    Magellan just added so much fun to your pics and post. He needs to be a spokescat, I think. 😉

    Yummy looking cookies too!
