Subject’s Name: “Cookie” a.k.a. “Number One.”
Genre: Kitten Portraiture.
Specific Difficulties with Genre: You Place – They Move. No Reasoning with a Kitten!
Age: About 4 Weeks Old.

You MUST HAVE Patience to create good Cat & Kitten Portraiture – Ahhhhh Patience:  They were here a minute ago.

“Cookie stay here…
Cookie stay here…
Cookie stay, no not there, come back here…
Cookie look here…NO, don’t move…
OK, let’s try that one more time…
Cookie, where are you going?  Can’t you see I’m trying to take your picture?
I think this is it Cookie, this is it…NO, don’t chew on the camera strap!
SOCRATES!  Don’t bother Cookie!
Don’t you lunatics know this is a serious situation?!?
Who spilled the water?
It’s not lunch time!
Do you mind turning back to actually face the camera – if it’s not too much to ask?”

And that’s just the first 5-minutes of the session.  Things seem to get more chaotic after that.
