Vaako the Bengal got *super* playful with some catnip spray, and I love the eye contact on his upside-cat!
Pet Project Rescue (PPR) is our September Rescue of the Month, and this year we decided to team up on an awesome fundraising calendar! Maia had the idea of photographing cute guys with adoptable kittens – but in a slightly more tasteful way than the standard “shirtless firemen with puppies” calendar. These are just 12 regular, Minneapolis fellas, with great style and a penchant for kittens.
It was SUCH a fun project (I mean, what’s better than playing with kittens all day, right?) and it turned out really great! There’s a bunch of ways you can get your Felines & Fellas 2017 Calendar, for just $14.99 (shipping is available)
Pick it up in person (this weekend!)

With the sale of each calendar, PPR will provide lifesaving care and spay and neuter services to hundreds of street cats in the Twin Cities through our Trap-Neuter-Return program, as well as fund our national and international spay/neuter clinics. Since we started our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program we have spayed/neutered over 650 street cats and found forever homes for hundreds of street kittens. PPR’s spay & neuter programs end the cycle of suffering by preventing future generations from being born into the hardships of street life, while also reducing the number of dogs & cats entering our shelter system. Together, with spay and neuter, we will end the plight of street animals from MN to Mexico!
Here’s some of my favorite shots from the project, and many of these are featured in the calendar as well:
When My Modern Met featured a story about my Joy Sessions, I had no idea it would lead to a “viral” spread all over the world.
I was even more excited when the founders of My Modern Met asked me if they could feature Joy Sessions in their new book, For Love: 25 Heartwarming Celebrations of Humanity.
It’s a gorgeous book, and I’m honored to be considered alongside the enormous talent featured inside.
