"I met Kathy and I felt like I'd known her forever. She has a way of making you feel comfortable."

“Kathy immediately put me at ease, we review my outfits and Kristi with Wink started my hair and make up.  With music playing, we laughed and had so much fun!  This day was one of the best days of my life!  I learned modeling is HARD work but it was so fun to be a model for a day.  It was an experience of a lifetime.  Kathy is professional, kind and sees you.  She has a way of capturing who you are in that moment.  I love so many of my photos and it was hard to choose just 20.  I recently picked up my album. I look at it and I am in awe. I HIGHLY recommend Kathy Howard.  I can’t say enough or express in words what this experience meant to me.”

“I think you were inspired to use that word, “Warrior”. You have such a gift for elevating someone’s confidence. I really needed that! Thank you for a day that I will cherish, and not just for the photos that I can’t wait to see, but for the feeling that I will carry with me forever, too!”

"Kathy does an amazing job making you feel at ease."

“She walks you through the whole process, from wardrobe, to hair and makeup, to posing, and she makes it incredibly fun. I was really nervous as someone who does not like having her picture taken, but I’m so glad I had Kathy behind the camera. I now have beautiful pictures that my children will always cherish.”
