When you buy a kitten from us, I send pictures every 2 weeks to the new families. I always do this on weekends and that has a specific reason; my husband is home and I need his help with taking pictures.
Unless you are a cat person, and you take pictures of baby kittens on a regular basis, you have no idea what kind of herculean task this is.
Newborns don't sit still, and not only do they not sit still, they actively turn their faces away from the light and scoot into the opposite direction of where you want them. So when they are newborns, my husband holds them and if we're lucky their heads will hold still enough for a split second to take a few pictures.
When they are about 3-4 weeks they hit the "running" phase. This means they are too big to be held, but the second you put them down they come running towards you because their attention span does not allow them to focus on a toy yet. This makes it almost impossible to take good pictures, so usually I revert to movies and tell people that what they see, is the reason I can't take good pictures of their kittens.
When they are about 6 weeks, things get easier and that's when you start to see the really good and cute pictures, because they can focus on a toy long enough to sit still for good pictures.
To you it may seem I snap these pictures real quick with my phone, while in reality my husband and I spend hours wrangling these kittens so I can send you what you want to see.
When the pictures are done, the other big task starts, which is editing. That usually takes even more time than taking the pictures itself. I have to crop, resize and often lighten up pictures so you get high quality photos of your little one, and then I have to email them out to everyone telling them how their kitten is doing and post on social media and update the website.
This picture taking process takes an entire day, especially if we have quite a few kittens. Because it takes an entire day and my husband and I both work during the week, we provide pictures once every 2 weeks.
