About this pro

How does your service stand out?

As a Photographer every view, angle and pose from the Lenses viewpoint is unique. I like to personalize my images. I also like to deliver new and quirky images. As an experienced Photographer I also realize when the need exist for traditional results.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Meeting people and capturing the true essence of an individual. I also like when people say "I really do not like taking pictures" and in the end they actually enjoy the entire experience and the results.

    Outstanding experience from beginning to end
    Kwana was prompt with her replies and worth every penny. She arrived on time, was prepared with her equipment, quickly took my thoughts on my photo shoot and directed me thru the various poses. All with a smile on her face. I received the re-touched photos the same night and was able to download them from her password protected site. I would absolutely use Kwana again.

    I found Kwana last minute to help out some family members. So I'm kind of just the middle man but my family raved about her and said she was great and very sweet! I am thrilled that I could find her so easily and communication was smooth!

    We hired Kwana last-minute to capture our 'elopement'. Her posted galleries indicated that she would do a good job capturing this type of event. Kwana was extremely prompt and professional in all communication regarding the event, which eased a lot of the stress associated with hiring a photographer. On the day of the event she did a fantastic job of directing some shots which we are very happy with. There was a good variety of candid in-the-moments and pose-type pictures. Overall it was a great experience, and I would recommend her services.

    I am very pleased I made the decision to work with Kwana for our daughter's baptismal. Kwana not only knows photography but is a very pleasant person to work with. She captures all the right moments and is able to manage difficulties that come her way. My family and guests had only good things to say! Keep up the good work!

    Kwana was not only professional, but both she and her crew were a delight to work with. She is currently working on my images, but from the preview she gave me, I expect I should be satisfied. I would recommend her to friends and, if I decide I need headshots again, she'll be top of my list.

    It's a pleasure to have Kwana at my husband's Arlington National Cemetery event. The photos she took were tasteful and truly captured the moment. Kwana's photos went above and beyond what I could have imagine. We were very happy with our photo book as a keepsake. I want to thank her again for her expertise and professionalism.

    The headshot samples that Kwana shot are beautiful. Kwana was on time and well-prepared, and she was very helpful in the planning stage, with respect to makeup, poses, clothing, etc. She really does capture the spirit!

    Kwana is patient, warm and open, exactly what a family photographer should be. My ordinarily shy 3 year-old daughter opened right up to her. Her photos were very well done and captured many lovely moments without overwhelming us with hundreds of "hope I catch a good one" shots.

    Kwana did an amazing job. It was rainy and cold the day of our photos and our pictures look amazing. I would most definitely use her services again and refer to everyone I know. She did an outstanding job.

    #1 tip you read (for headshots) - 'be comfortable with your photographer'...Kwana couldn't have made it easier...a joy to work with...personal attention, pro shots - what more could you ask for? Dan H

    Kwana is delightful to work with. She carefully selects the shots she wants, rather than shooting constantly in hopes of a few good ones. She is also great with kids. My 3 year old daughter is very shy but not only warmed right up to Kwana but was looking for her the whole rest of the afternoon after our shoot. Must be a gift. Oh, and the photos were great. We have about 8 that we love from the set.

    Kwana's photography captures the essence and the spirit of our church ministries. She senses the moment, captures a place in time which defines the heart of each ministry at our church. I love a photographer who tells the story with one or a series of photographs-- so when I see our church's newsletter, I can relive that exact moment!
  • Katina D. Nov 3, 2014
    My experience working with Kwana was pleasant. We took family photos with 3 small children. The photos were not your average stiff family portraits. Kwana is creative and is able to capture natural emotion.
