about

pretty ragdoll kittenWelcome! I am Diana Starr, sole proprietor of Starrlight Photography. As a business, the focus is (pun intended) on pet photography. The majority of work is done at allbreed cat shows which include both purebred cats and mixed-breed household pets, but I do at times photograph dogs and humans (usually with their pets), and I photograph landscapes and architecture for pleasure. My cat photographs have been featured in a number of publications including the covers of well known magazines such as Cat Fancy.

I’ve been a photography enthusiast since getting my first Kodak Instamatic camera as a child, taking photos of the animals on our Iowa farm and on family vacations. Over the years I’ve developed and improved the skills – some inherent and some learned – to capture the beauty and personality of the wonderful creatures I have opportunity to photograph.

Eventually I may have a small studio space in San Diego where I live but currently I only shoot cat shows and in-home shoots, mostly in California and surrounding states. Feel free to inquire about a homeshoot in Southern California, or possibly outside that area (with paid travel expenses).

Please check out the sampling of photos under the “mini gallery” tab, and many more in my main online gallery, listed in the “links” section in upper right column. I don’t post to the blog here often but do update the Facebook page regularly so please check that out also.

Thanks for visiting!
