  In the photo with me are Franchesca's three daughters:  Clementina, Cuties and Halos.    All three pretty girls are very young but have achieved Grand Champion status.   Their show careers are just starting to blossom.  

Barcroft licenses their photos and videos to other news organizations.   From the internet, there is one big spread from the UK Daily Mail site.   Daily Mail has also done a spread last year on my English Angora.

Barcroft TV Video on Betty and Her English Angora, Part 1

(Photo from Barcroft website)
On October 23, 2015, Barcroft USA did a full-day photo and video shoot of Betty and her English Angora at Betty's home in Morgan Hill, CA.  The completed project of the photos and the video are now posted on

In the article and the video, the location is listed as San Jose, CA.   Morgan Hill is a suburb of San Jose of which is the 3rd largest city in CA.

Betty is sharing some of the background photos of the shoot.  The following is part 1, the outdoor shoot.

The able photographer/videographer is Josh Freund, a young and coming professional.  He graduated from Northwestern University in Illinois with a degree in communications.    The white English Angora in the photos is Chu's Jonny.

I first set up a double pen in our backyard for the bunnies.

Josh got into the pen to photograph the bunnies.

Bunnies are curious about Josh.

I joined in with the bunnies.   The bigger "bunny" in front of me is mama Franchesca and the rest are all her babies.

The bunnies are having a good time running around while Josh takes photos of them.

These are the three sisters: Clementina, Cuties, and Halos.    They are Franchesca's older daughters that have been active in shows.

Josh is taking a close-up of Clementina.

On the table is Jonny.

This is a sit down interview with a long list of questions that I have to answer; the answers are edited into the video in various situations.
