Welcome to Kiva House! Our white adobe-style property is located in Pasadena but will transport you to the Desert Southwest or the hills of Ibiza, Spain. It is set on a hillside with the San Gabriel mountains as the backdrop and 180 degree views of the city and mountainside. DRESSING ROOM: Located next to the pool is a separate indoor space that can be used for wardrobe, hair/makeup, and to store equipment etc. There is a full bathroom for your use as well as a tall table, chairs, and wardrobe rack. OUTDOOR SPACE: The outdoor space around the property provides many different areas, views, and angles to shoot from, with varying light throughout the day. The smooth rounded stucco walls throughout the property create a neutral backdrop for portraits. You will find many types of mature tropical and desert plants throughout. Traditional iron doors and Spanish tile roof windows create interest and mood perfect for desert chic vibes, southwestern and boho styles, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, travel, swimwear, nude, wedding photo shoots, and more. HEATED POOL: The pool is white plaster which gives a light blue color traditional of desert homes and European villas. There are 3 steps on either end of the pool. It is 34 ft long x 11 ft wide, 3 ft deep on either side and 6 ft deep in the center. It can be heated for an additional fee at checkout. LIGHTING: The pool and courtyard area get full sun all day. The sun rises behind the mountain on the backside of the property. The property is west-facing with gorgeous sunsets that reflect a beautiful golden glow on the white exterior. PRIVATE & QUIET: The property is secluded and quiet. There are no overlooking neighbors and is set far from any busy roads. WEATHER: We realize that weather can sometimes be unfavorable. If you would like to reschedule your shoot date, please reach out within 24 hours. EVENT TYPES: Available for outdoor photoshoots. When booking, please include details of project and social media.
