Elina and her Sphynx cat / Los Angeles Portrait and Fashion Photographer

When I was back in Texas earlier this month, I did a photo session with Elina and her sphynx cat named Louie. Elina is strikingly beautiful and I love cats (and dogs, and hedgehogs, elephants, horses, any animals really) so when I found out she had a hairless cat – I knew the photo session would be full of style! (Elina also has a hairless dog, but he wasn’t as cooperative).

After looking at the outfits options together, we opted for a black, white, and red color scheme. Her nails were painted red, she had red accessories, red jacket, red purse, bright red lipstick, and just when I thought our style game was on point, Elina pulled out a perfectly matched red and black sweater for Louie.

I turned a couple of the photos into black and white. I think monochrome adds a certain storytelling element to photos that color photos don’t. There’s no color that can distract the viewer or point out certain aspects of the photograph. Black and white has to have dimension, shadows, a good contrast of black and whites, and a good story.

The black and white photo below has to be my favorite.
