I love waking up in the morning to discover everything covered in fresh white snow. The trees are white and fuzzy, everything looks shiny and new and the air is crisp and clean.

Reminds me so much of Mother Russia!

I’ve been wishing for snow since before Christmas and finally the snow gods answered my prayers.

Right away I knew what I wanted to do… get some sexy pictures in the snow. =)

I had few ideas in mind.

This one I’ve been waiting for a while to do. It was inspired by the Black Dahlia and Kristina pulled it off beautifully.

Another great thing I got to try out is the Fog Machine my husband got me for Christmas this year.

Yes, I asked Santa for studio props and equipment… what else would I need?

During the day when the sun came out and started slowly melting all the ice, we took some shots under the tree. The frozen drops were falling all over LauraJean, but she kept her composure.

With her I wanted to portray an Ice Princess with frizzy hair and ice blue eyes.

For LauraJean’s other look I took her to the front porch. Her outfit reminded me of a flapper girls of the 20′s and I wanted her to hold one of my beautiful Pixie Bob cats. The moment the cats saw the snow though they were not cooperating at all. So we had to do without =).

Later that evening it started snowing again and Jennifer came out to help me with another idea I had. I wanted to see if I can get a great shot in the dark with snow flakes dancing around the model. By the time we were ready to shoot the snow stopped, but we were not ready to give up. These are the shots we got late in the evening, with freezing temperature.

Jenn is a superstar!

This crazy girl sat in the snow and rubbed it all over herself. I get cold every time I look at these pictures, but it was totally worth it! 

At the end I want to say thank you to the girls that battled icy roads to come and shoot with me. All three froze in the snow just to help me bring some ideas to life.

Girls, you are the greatest!

    Night Before Catmas

    Written on December 24, 2011 Categories: Events and Travel, Whidbey Island

    Twas the night before Catmas
    When all through the house
    Not an animal was stirring,
    Not even the mouse.

    The kitties were snuggled
    And tucked in their beds,
    While visions of cat goodies
    Danced in their heads.

    Their stockings were hung
    By the cat bowls with care,
    In hope that Father Catmas
    Soon would be there.

    Out on the rooftop
    Arose such a hissing,
    I knew Father Catmas
    Was having trouble parking.

    I jumped to the window
    And clawed through the curtain.
    “Here he is!”, I purred
    “It is him, I’m certain.”

    What to my deep eyes
    Should appear,
    But Father Catmas himself
    In his Cat-sled gear.

    He purred and he purred,
    But through the kitty door he went,
    Then stopped and smelled the air
    As he picked up a scent.

    He went about his work
    With never a sigh,
    Filling the stockings
    With catnip piled high.

    He waved at me
    With his mighty paw.
    Although I was hiding,
    ‘Twas my little nose he saw.

    Out the kitty door he went
    In oh such a rush,
    Jumped on his cat-sled
    And yelled out, “MUSH!”

    The Pixie Bob cat team
    Were raring to go.
    They hated ‘stand stay’,
    Especially in the snow.

    I could hear him hissing
    As he disappeared that night,

    “Merry Catmas to all!

    and to all a good night!”


    From our Oni Family to Yours!

    Hope you have the best Catmas ever filled with love and happiness!
