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!

We cannot give Kathy Whitakker enough stars!! Amazing, award winning, photos from relaxed & fun shoots, EVERY TIME!! We can always count on Kathy to work with top notch hair & makeup artists! We happily travel 3 hours for a shoot with Kathy! On our way to shoot with her this past year, we had the misfortune of being in a car accident. Because we were so late to the shoot, Kathy could have easily cancelled us, but instead, shot with us as soon as we could get there. She even went an hour out of her way, after the shoot, to take us to get a rental car for our trip back home! Kathy Whitakker always be our first choice for headshots!!!

Having worked with many photographers I can say that Kathy truly is the best at what she does. Her work with studio and natural light is out of this world. She makes her photos pop, and award winning because she also is charismatic, uplifting and treats everyone like a star. It’s very important I believe to bolster and really guide your client to success. She goes above and beyond with the most heart. There’s a winning she’s a staple photographer and I hope you have as much fun as I did.

Kathy is the BEST photographer I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail is amazing. I have been involved in pageants for over 50 years and have never found anyone who takes the quality of photos as she does. She has the ability to bring out the best in everyone she photographs. My daughter and I both had several sessions with Kathy love every minute of our sessions. It is an art to be able get the best angle, light, pose, etc with each person. I can't say enough about her professionalism and quality, and the bonus she makes sure you are at ease and have the best day of your life!! I could go on and on, but check her out for yourself and I promise you will have the best experience and photos of your life. Don't wait Book today!!

I have only had the opportunity to work with Kathy and her amazing team of hair and makeup artists the past 3 years and I have been very pleased. She has photographed my 18yr old and my 7yr old flawlessly. Kathy goes to great lengths and is not afraid to get "down and dirty" to ensure the perfect photo is taken. Her studio is cozy yet professional with a welcoming vibe - a must for Moms like me with little ones. Kathy is very personable, easy to reach, and is everything you'll ever want or need in a photographer to create that perfect photo. Another plus is that her booking process is easy! Quick and efficient! So take a trip to Austin, Texas or find her in a city near you, I promise you won't be disappointed!
