"I have been remembering the day with such joy!"

“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!”

"Visiting Kathy will change how you view yourself, any previous negative experiences with photos or societal expectations."

“The process is so warming and supportive from beginning to end.  There is a deep level of comfort with an ability to feel good in your own skin and with who you are.  Photography is not only about the final images, it’s what you sense, feel and interpret during the experience.  It’s how you walk away knowing you want to return and do it all again.”

"There are no adequate words to describe the beautiful experience Kathy gives to her clients."

“The gift was our time together. The photos were the souvenir. I felt seen! I felt as beautiful on the outside as she made me feel on the inside! Kathy is a gift. She is talented in her craft but her true gift is how she celebrates our divine right to be seen and to be beautiful!”
