senior year. 

“She has a quiet, easy demeanor that puts the subject at ease.”

“Great senior photo experience! Kat recently did my son's high school senior photos. He isn't one that loves getting his pictures taken, but Kat was great at giving him direction and we are so happy with the results! Kat is easy to work with and is great at communicating with the client. She has a quiet, easy demeanor that puts the subject at ease. We can't wait to work with her again. Highly recommend!"
-Blythe W. 

"Kat is absolutely amazing! I don't like my picture taken & I am not photogenic. She made me feel so comfortable that I actually had a blast doing the shoot. She had an incredible eye for the right angles, lighting, setting. I could go on & on. I am beyond happy with my photos and will be ordering some canvas prints. I highly recommend Kat!”
-Ondrea A.
