Every shoot with Kathy (and team) is incredible. Not only is she an incredible photographer with an equally talented group of makeup artists, but she is an amazing person and makes every shoot feel like a party. I always have a hard time picking just one or two photos afterwards because they are all so stunning.

I have used Kathy for many of my clients. She is a phenomenal photographer that knows not only her industry but the industry that she is shooting for whether it’s modeling, pageants, or actors. She takes time to get to know her clients and cares about their best interest beyond the photoshoot. Behind the camera Kathy is a master at her craft. My clients have been thrilled with their results and many have won most photogenic because of working with Kathy!!! Love Kathy and her work!

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!
