    Kay was wonderful to work with and delivered excellent pictures. We had 4 generations and 2 dogs. Kay drove up the mountain to a spot convenient for us. She came well-prepared with toys to interest the baby and was able to get all of us well-positioned and smiling. We did love the slide show and pictures. We very much appreciated that Kay was very responsive. When the pictures were ready, she uploaded them all to dropbox for us with no delay. We love having all the high res images. Thanks Kay! -loved the pictures-very responsive -- when pictures were ready, uploaded them quickly for us

    Purchased a session as a gift. The family has not had their pictures taken yet so I cannot fairly rate Kay's work however she has been very accommodating and informative. I chose her based on her price, portfolio and our conversations.

    Our experience with Kay was outstanding. She is an absolute professional. She has a calm, easy-going nature...and aims to please. She is flexible regarding location, prop ideas and all logistics. And to top it off, she is an absolute artist with the camera. Our photos turned out amazing. She captured so many great shots of our family that my biggest dilemma was how to narrow our selection. She was quick in delivering the finished product...and even took extra steps to ensure our access to extra copies. In short, we found our family photographer. It's Kay! Do not hesitate to turn to Kay for all your photography needs! We cannot say enough about our experience! Nothing but positive!!

    Kay was assigned the task of photographing 4 high energy children, 2 of which were infants. Scheduling the sitting was extremely easy. She worked well with the kids, exhibiting extreme patience. The photos were beautiful and the personalities of the kids all came shining thru. I would definitely use her again.

    Kay was a great choice for our newborn photos with our twins. She was very laid back and understanding about me taking time to nurse, and was so patient when trying to get both babies asleep and posed at the same time ;). Kay even took time to photograph our 4 year old by himself, which made him feel very special. She spent all morning with us, and had our photos ready in just over a week. Great experience, and great price!

    Thanks so much Melissa - your family was a delight to work with! I'm looking forward to the 3 months shoot also!

    Kay is a great photographer. She photographed our wedding and has done several photo shoots with our twins. She always captures wonderful moments and we are always so happy with the end result. The only problem is picking which photos to print! There are always so many great ones to choose from!

    Kay has been photographing my 2 grand daughters since the oldest was 6 months old. The most recent photo shoot was a birthday shoot (they turned 4 and 1 in December). The "cake smash" photos were incredible. Kay has the amazing ability to capture children at just the right moment. Besides baby photography, I have seen many examples of her work..... Weddings and mountain scenery. She is a true artist with her camera!

    Kay has photographed both of my daughters in her home studio, outside, and in my home many times and I couldn't be more pleased. She has found the sweet nature of my youngest when she was a few days old and as she grew and turned 1 recently. She also rose to the challenge of capturing the beauty of my 4 year old through the years. This included posed pictures, pictures on stairs, in every room of the house, outside, in the air and of course, on the trampoline. We recently did a Cake Smash photoshoot for the girls birthdays. The girls had so much fun and the pictures are AMAZING, as usual. I highly recommend using Kay.

    Kay has been photographing our daughter since the age of 6 months. Katie is now 6 years old. I can't say too many good things about Kay! Not only do we love her but our little girl does too. We have had many a session with Kay and so are always looking for something new and fresh to add to our collection. Kay never disappoints- especially because we are so open to ideas- she has plenty! And for the times we had our own specific ideas in mind- she was more than willing to accommodate our requests. We have been so thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her and look forward to many more sessions! A+++++
