About CJ Wilkes Photography

Capturing Your Dance In The Rain is such a thrill and joy to me. Being able to look back on those special times through beautiful artistic imagery makes it a worthwhile challenge.
Learning to Dance in the Rain has been very easy for me. I am drawn to Water & Life! The exciting part for me is to teach you to enjoy your moment in the dance as I capture it from behind my camera.
Looking forward to Capturing Your Dance In The Rain

More Kitty Cats! Part B

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

This is part B of images of our cats.

We will start out with Pepper once again.  She happens to belong to my Nathanya:

Then her brother Midnight who belongs to Miriam and is such a goofy little kitty LOL:

Here is Charcoal doing what he does best – being Garfield!

And then our sweet Dusty:

We are grateful to Nathan’s co worker who parted with our 5 kitties so that our 5 children could love playing with them too.  I know only 4 are shown here.  QT is in the previous blog making 5.  Hope you enjoyed as much as my children did!

Cats and Kids part A

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

In our home we have 5 children.  My dear husband felt that was not enough and picked up 5 cats.  Now each child has their own cat.  The people we got them from have wondered how they are doing so this and the next blog are dedicated to them.  My children and their beautiful cats!


Here we have Nathanya and her kitten Pepper.  Each child named their own cat.  It is funny to see Nathanya with Pepper because they are both the smallest and skinniest.  Both so quiet and precious!

Next we have Dusty!  She is one of our first cats.  She is a great hunter and loves being near but not part of things.  She belongs to Edmond, but I take over until he is a bit more responsible.  I might just get him another cat and keep her for myself.



Charcoal came to us at the same time as Dusty.  He belongs to Jared!  He is so funny – we often call him Garfield.  He eats at our home then goes to neighbor homes and eats there too.  He is heavy as bricks but as sweet as a marshmallow puff!

More of Midnight will be coming in part B – but for now here he is.  Midnight belongs to my Miriam.  She used to have a Twighlight for a guinea pig.  She loves the dark cats.  We all are surprised at how passive and kind Midnight is.  He has his fun streak but he really loves to just be loved.  Edmond often will be found holding Midnight or any other cat he can get his hands on.

And last but not least is QT who belongs to Samuel.  He is our feistiest cat!  This cat loves to swat and growl at our kids but will come back to them and snuggle too.  He and Samuel are the perfect match.  Samuel does not mind being swat at and loves to play around with QT.


We have more action ones that I am sure you will all love, but this is the start.  Hope you enjoyed our babies :)

3 T’s

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Here are Tatum, Teresa, and Triton.  Teresa had another dog who died a little back and she told me one thing she regrets is not having a picture of him to remember.  We decided that it was important that she get pictures of her boys Tatum and Triton.  It was so fun.  The boys had not gone to the beach before.  They did a fantastic job.  They were curious and looked around, but when it came time to sit or be somewhat still they did fabulous.  We also spent some time in the woods which was a fun experience as well.  I was in awe by these big boys of Teresa’s and am thankful for the time with them all.  Had so much fun with my 3 T’s :)

He kept yawning – was he trying to tell me something ;)  It was so cute!




Families come in all sizes and shapes, species too.  This family had a chance to capture this moment in time forever.  It was my pleasure to be a part of it.  Thank you Tatum, Triton, and Teresa!
