We needed a photographer on very short notice. Kymberley responded quickly, even though it was very late at night. I described our project to her and we made an appointment. In the first few sentences of her response, she alleviated my anxiety by about half. The next day, I sent an email explaining that I was nervous, as I had never had anyone photograph my home before. I had tried very hard to prepare for the session, but still felt badly because my home is not bright and shiny or full of upgrades. Kymberley was reassuring and helped me with a few suggestions. By the time she arrived I was in tears, and she offered to reschedule, but suggested a walk-through. Within minutes, she had lifted my spirits and followed with a wonderful photography session that captured what I believe is the rich essence of my home. The pictures were wonderful, but there was one that I wanted to use that had an object in it that I forgot to move out of view. She was edited the photo quickly so that we could use it. I truly appreciated her professional manner along with her compassionate presence. Her photos sparkled with life and beauty. We are very pleased.May 12, 2017Verified
As a Santa and Mrs. Claus team, "Mrs. C" and I were in desperate need of a photographer to provide photos of our wee clientele's visits for a Christmas Tree farm that had hired us on short notice. Ms. Chiorando responded to our desperate plea for photo services, and, with very little fore-notice, she was able to transport her equipment to the barn which had been set-up for our Santa site. Believe me, cold weather, high winds whipping through the barn and a floor of hay were but a few of the issues with which she had to deal. Despite the impediments, Kym solved issues that can only be alluded to in this report. She proved to be imaginative, creative, and professionally adept in working with children, some of whom did not initially wish to cooperate. Her "formal" photos were most certainly far superior to the typical "plop, pop, snap, and punt" of the routine mall photographers and her candid photographs captured many truly captivating expressions on the children's faces. Additionally, and unsolicited by us, she spent additional time after the visit to enhance the photos for the parents, posting them on line so that each family could download only their own children's beautiful photos. We hired Kym for two additional events and would have hired her for others, had she not already been contracted to work for other events. We strongly recommend retaining Kym Chiorando as your photographer for what ever event you may require a photographer. Well, that is with the exception of late November through December. Just saying. Thank you Kym, Santa and Mrs. CJan 25, 2017
