Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hello there! My name is Katherine and as a creative, social and outdoorsy person I decided photography is a perfect career for me. I started taking photos back in 2012 with my first iPhone & fell in love with photography. Bought my first pro camera 2 years after that & now since 2021 I have turned my hobby from a hobby to a career. I love adventure photography or anything that takes me outside. I travel, hike & explore for fun & always carry my camera. Sunsets & sunrise are my favorite times of the day to photograph but can do whatever time works best for the client. I focus on family photography, maternity photography, engagements, weddings, & events. I serve Riverside County, San Bernardino County, Orange County, San diego County & LA county but can travel anywhere in Southern California (or further even out of state). Studio sessions can be in my studio in Perris, CA or any studio for rent in Riverside or Los Angeles area. I take what I do as an art, finding ways to be creative, get different angles & really focus on editing. My edits remove unwanted background distractions, smooth skin, and remove blemishes. I am professional, available every day of the week, quick to respond to your needs & will return your photos within 2 weeks. Please book at least 2 weeks in advance for best availability.

Working with Katherine was amazing! She was so kind and accommodating. Very responsive and made me feel comfortable when I am normally scared of having my picture taken. The photos turned out wonderful and I would definitely work with her again in the future.

Katherine’s photos are absolutely stunning. She has a great eye for photo composition, and her friendly and warm demeanor creates for a good ambiance to feel comfortable in front of the camera. We will definitely be hiring her again!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Sessions start at $185-$300 from 30 minutes to 2 hour sessions, events usually $300 for 2 hours $575 4 hours, $850 for 6 hours or $1,075 for 8 hours. I charge a travel fee after 30 miles from 92570. PLEASE check out my prices for events/parties/weddings before messaging me. ( I may be out of your budget and if you message me to find that out I spend money from the lead message you sent.) I DO NOT OFFER DISCOUNTS my services are worth the cost & I do not devalue my self or my time.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I ask what the photo session is for, tell you my package options, we choose a date that works for both of us, I give you my prefer times for that date & session type, you send me inspiration pictures, then we finalize the booking with a deposit & I book you through my website. You will receive a confirmation email with the details & updates on payments. We can do all of this through text, call or email I am very flexible. Full balance needs to be paid before session starts. Pictures are then delivered within 2 weeks after the session through an online gallery. Galleries for events have a return time of 3 weeks or more depending on how many hours the event was.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Been using my camera since 2014 on adventures, travel, and family outings. I am very confident with my composition, lighting, & posing others. Learned a lot on Youtube, instagram and just hands on learning. I have some styled shoots to gain knowledge from other photographers aligned for this summer.
