Kathy has shot my daughter twice and each time she captured some amazing headshots. She has a knack of making the model feel so at ease, and telling them how to make minor adjustments in their pose that make a huge difference in how the shot turns out. What a joy to work with her!

Kathy, Is a phenomenal photographer. I often refer clients to her for both pageant headshots as well as acting. She takes time with each Client and never rushes. Her work is top notch and with many photogenic winners in various systems that is testament to her work as well as her knowledge of each system. Her personal touch that she gives to each customer is top notch and what she is known for! Love Kathy!

Kathy is an amazing photographer. She has done several photo shoots with my daughter and each shoot we have THE hardest time picking out which pictures to use because there are so many amazing photos. They are not only stunning but age appropriate. I highly recommend having your pictures done by Kathy if you have the opportunity to do so.

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.
