In-Home Cat Photography in Del Mar, CA

I was thrilled when Kiva’s mom invited me back to Del Mar for another in-home cat photography session! Do you remember Kiva’s blog post from a few weeks ago? She’s an absolutely gorgeous 17-year-old ragdoll kitty, and while photo sessions are not what she considers the ideal way to spend her time, she posed like a champ in her happy place (the garden), and even inside for some “studio” images! That’s right, I brought & set up my studio equipment – backdrop, lights, and everything – in Kiva’s home, so she wouldn’t have to travel down to San Diego to the studio. For special cases, like 17-year-old cats, I’m happy to create an entirely in-home experience, because that’s the best way to keep pets like Kiva comfortable. A pet’s comfort & happiness is paramount during their photo session, and Kiva’s session was a great example of making that happen, even with studio images!


Kiva was happy to pose for us – as long as she wanted to be in the spot we placed her in! She’s definitely a “my way or the highway” kind of cat… and in fact, she reminds me of the quote from Henry Ford: “Any customer can have a car painted any color he wants, so long as it is black.” Haha!

She never minds spending time in her happy place – and this scene might look familiar if you saw her last blog post! But this time, We decided a few roses would complement Kiva’s pretty fur, so we styled the flowers around her!

This is Pixie, one of Kiva’s siblings, testing out the in-home studio backdrop! She couldn’t stop playing, in fact – if she wasn’t stretched out on the backdrop playing with a toy, she was batting the corners of the backdrop, seeing how it tasted, or running around on it! Nonstop playfulness; it was too cute!

Amie, thanks again for another fabulous session! I can’t wait to show you the new set of images of Kiva & her siblings! :)
