love notes + testimonials

"AHHH! Oh my goodness. I LOVE THEM. Thank you SO much Katie. You truly are awesome at what you do.

Seriously, you have no idea how much anxiety I was feeling because I have gained a ton of weight in the last couple of years — (gah!). I actually thought about cancelling and losing our deposit. But the truth is though that looking at these photos it doesn’t even matter because you truly captured our family during a really special vacation in a city we love. The girls are growing up so fast that who knows how many more trips like this we will have, and now we have these as the perfect way to remember this time.

And the photos of the girls! I have so many pictures of them, but there is such a different filter when their mom is behind the camera. You totally nailed how they are with each other. The locations you chose were perfect too. I’m so glad I put complete trust in you!

Thank you thank you!!

Family Portraits in Paris

"Hi Katie, 

Absolutely awesome... We're so impressed and we completely love these shots. We make a habit of getting professional photos done pretty often, and we both agree that these are the best we've ever had. You did such a good job with the kids and the joy you captured is a testament to that. They're beautifully lit, tastefully edited, and will be absolutely treasured. 

Now we have to make some tough decisions about what prints go where!

Thanks again for working with us. We're so happy with the results!

Three Generational Family Portraits in Paris

"Hi Katie,

The albums are so gorgeous! Everyone at Emerson's graduation party was raving over how beautiful they are.  The albums are very impressive. I am so glad that we configured the images into 2 books.

I am elated that we had you take our pictures in Paris, it is a memory that I will cherish forever, and now we have wonderful albums to help us commemorate those moments.

Thank you so much!

Maternity Portrait session in Paris

Katie, what can I say...having a photo shoot with you was just amazing, you have this amazing capacity to give life to photography. Not only because the results are just beautiful, touching, and vibrating....But also because the photo shoot itself was truly an incredible experience...full of love, joy, and fun, and that's exactly what you bring to the field.
At the end of the day, that is what matters, what the artist can express in their work, in your case, you bring all that, not only to your creations, but to the ones who have the chance to work with you. And besides, you make us look good!!!
Thanks again, I can stop smiling and falling in love every time I see the pictures...
 
 
Best!

Couples portrait session in Paris

Katie,

I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for all your patience and help during our photo shoot.  You did such an amazing job with our pictures!!!  You were such a pleasure to work with, Carlos couldn't have picked a better person to share and capture our special day with other than you!  I am obsessed with our pictures and can't wait to show them off.

I also wanted to let you know that after working with you and seeing your website, you've inspired me to push myself a little more towards doing what I really like which is photography and even if it only means that I'm picking this up as a hobby right now, I one day hope to have half the talent you have and happily say "Truth be told I'm one of those crazy people who really loves their job..." :)

Thanks again for everything, you rock!
