Kathy truly is the best! I’ve been working with her as a hair and makeup artist for the past few years. Her clients love her, she makes them feel comfortable, and gives them the highest quality of photos to choose from. Kathy even did my photogenic winning headshots last year!

If you are going to Austin, Texas I hope it’s because you are doing a photoshoot with Kathy ? She’s professional in every way! I received proofs almost immediately. If I had to say there was a downside. All I can say that she takes such amazing shots it makes it so hard to choose from the many shots she takes. I received so many compliments on my photos and I tell everyone.. you have to shoot with Kathy!! ? And if you doubt my word... check out her Instagram & Facebook and see for yourself. Better yet... check out my profile pic ?

I've worked with Kathy twice for pageant headshots for my daughter and both times she was phenomenal! She has an uncanny ability for lighting, setting up her shots so that her subject is bathed in flattering natural light that brings out her best qualities. Even beyond her technical photography skills, she knows the norms and expectations of each major pageant system so she can adjust an angle, crop, or lighting to be successful within that system. Thank you for all you do, Kathy!

My Mom and I met Kathy Whitaker and Amanda Cave (HMU) in Phoenix and they were both extremely nice and very talented. My pageant headshots are incredible and we have so many beautiful photos to choose from! We were so thankful to have this amazing opportunity and thankful they traveled here to Phoenix.

Kathy Whittaker is not just another photogher! She is supremely talented and her award winning headshots are worth every penny. On top of that, a photo shoot with Kathy is a fun and memorable experience. She is professional, kind, supportive, encouraging, and makes your time with her relaxing and rewarding. Nothing is more exciting than having Kathy lean over and show you a headshot that is on point! She is knowledgeable regarding pageants, and what it takes for your child to look the best they can. My daughters headshots were fantastic. We will definitely be back for more!
