Del Mar Cat Photography: Kiva the Ragdoll

I absolutely love meeting pets & owners that are deeply connected to each another, and this Del Mar cat photography session was no exception! Kiva is a 17-year-old ragdoll cat who lives with her mom, Amie, in their gorgeous Del Mar home, and it was clear to see how close they are. (I would post a photo of the two of them together, but I know humans typically like to see & approve their photos before they go on the internet, haha!) Kiva happens to be, well, slightly past her prime physically – she is 17! – so we went about the session slowly and at her pace. We also gave her frequent breaks in her “happy place”, the garden! She was incredibly cooperative and let us play with her all afternoon long… all three of us had a great time! And plus, I even got to meet a few of Kiva’s feline siblings; she has several younger brothers and sisters but their mom wanted Kiva to be the center of attention for our session, since they’ve been together the longest. So without further ado, let me introduce you to this very special kitty!

 Kiva’s backyard was a dream come true to photograph! So many flowers and so much greenery… I love the attention to detail that I always see in my Del Mar clients’ homes! I suppose it’s reason #824 why I love Del Mar photo sessions

And in standard feline fashion, she informed us (in a not-so-subtle way) when she was done with our shenanigans.

Amie, thank you for a fabulous afternoon! I can’t wait to see you again soon & show you the rest of our photos! :)
