    Kati was a Blast to work with! She arrived early & captured our personal touches at the venue. She has a great eye with lighting (especially the sunlight) & framing a pose in a natural way. She has a bubbly, magnetic personality & got along with Everyone! We even made her stop working to join us on the dance floor. I highly recommend her for any photography job. She produces quality pictures. Her relaxed personality, great eye for catching the rare moments, and ability to fit in wherever needed, made for an enjoyable and stress free event

    She was absolutely perfect! I'm a photographer myself, so probably not the easiest bride to work with. She made sure everything was photographed and edited to my standards!

    Awesome job, quality work, professional but fun, circumstantially flexible!!!
    We threw my daughter a surprise Sweet 16 party that was a huge success due to Katti's help! I was very impressed with the photos she took at not only the mini session, to the photo booth, to the outdoor night auto pics after. When asked if she could help facilitate getting my daughter to the party venue under a different pretense she did not hesitate and pulled off the surprise successfully! I will definitely be using her again!!!

    The best photos I've ever seen of us!
    I reached out to Katti about shooting some casual family photos at my sister-in-law's farm the day after Christmas. Not only was Katti fairly priced, her portfolio showed an assortment of beautiful work that felt like a good fit for our laid-back family. Leading up to the shoot, Katti was easy to reach and prompt with replies to my questions. When it came time for the shoot, Katti was on-time, prepared, and totally warm and professional. She was exceedingly patient with my rambunctious tweens—and equally patient with my older mother-in-law & father-in-law. After the shoot, Katti took pains to stay in touch, keeping me posted on the processing of our images. A few weeks later, I received the photos and I must say...they are absolutely gorgeous! Katti is an artist, pure and simple. Her expert eye for the interplay of color, light, texture, and scale made for photos that actually brought me and my husband to tears when we first saw them. Thank you Katti, for a fabulous shoot and for capturing the special bonds and playful joy of our family. The gift of your artistry means more to us than we can express.

    Great experience -- I'll hire her again!
    Katti was awesome! From quote to finished product, she was very open with her communication and accessable, which was nice because she traveled to our house the day after Christmas...Already alot of craziness on our end. I explained what we were looking for - large family photos with smaller family unit photos including 2 toddlers and 4 dogs, and she explained that she had done that kind of thing before and some of her techniques. She was great with the dogs and phenomenal with the kids (got them to smile for the family photos and candid shots too). Overall, a great experience. Next time our family needs photos, I'm calling her again for sure!

    Katti is the BEST!! Except no substitutes! :-)
    Loved Katti! She was fantastic! We are so happy with our photos. People comment on how awesome they are all the time and we tell them to call Kidtee Hello Photography. We will be calling on Katti, again, when we are ready to do our next set of photos.

    Simply the Best
    She was phenomenal! She drove to an unfamiliar location to deal with our group of 18. We had planned four different shots, but she was so efficient that we ended getting almost five times the shots we wanted, not including the candids and funny shots in between. She even suggested shots we hadn't considered that turned out phenomenally! She's hilarious and very easy going. It made the day so easy and stress-free! I highly recommend Katti because she was so helpful not only on the day, but was very flexible and accommodating with planning the date and time. Seriously, stop considering it and hire her.

    Professional, pleasant a joy to work with !
    Kidtee Photography was phenomal. The bride and I (matron of Honor) booked Kidtee and I'm so very glad that we did. The team was professional, easy to be around, and made all wedding attendees feel at ease. They REALLY out in a lot of work to ensure that the best shots were taken, and were SUPER patient with children who were a little handful to work with. I would definitely book again, thank you so much for helping to make my best friends wedding day run so incredibly smooth!

  • Heidi K. Mar 23, 2016
    Katti Foster is not only a amazing photographer, she is a good friend! She took all the pictures of our wedding reception. The pictures were so unique, I still get comments on them. Katti managed to capture all of us being ourselves. They are more gorgeous then I thought they could be. My husband always wanted Katti to shoot our wedding or our reception. I saw a lot of her work being from Dayton too, and it is edgy and beautiful. I wanted her to take our pictures too!
  • Robert M. Mar 4, 2016

    Katti took our engagement photos, and it was a joy working with her! It was a beautiful August day, and Katti knew how to use that to her advantage. Katti's experience and professionalism is obvious and her sweet and kind nature put us at ease. Our pictures are perfect, and our smiles genuine. We will definitely be using her for future sessions!

  • Jill L. Feb 6, 2013
    Kidtee is such an enthusiastic and personable photographer. She values her subjects as people, and prefers them to become good friends, which sets her apart from other businessminded folk. This woman knows everyone! I could go on an on about her images, but I'll just let her portfolio speak for itself!
  • Charlie S. Feb 6, 2013

  • Kat L. Feb 6, 2013
    Kidtee is in a league of her own. Every shoot is a new experience, and her work stands alone. She's friendly and hilarious, an absolute joy to work with. She has an eye and talent for editing that makes every image stellar. She's a pro and anyone would be lucky to work with talent like hers. It's rare.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I generally price by the hour but it really depends on the gig. Some smaller events i will give a set price. But its pretty straight forward and I open to ask any questions regarding the price I quote.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I want to know exactly what you are looking for before you get in front of the camera. If you have no clue that's okay too. My goal is create images you love, that process start with getting to know who you are and what you like and dislike. I want to make sure I offer a price and package that fits your needs, so you have everything you want and in your budget.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I think the most important thing for photography is to really stay current because its such a digital world now. Though I did go to school off and on for photography since I was real young. I think with anything creative when you are passionate you will seek out how to completely hone your craft and your really never stop learning. I seem to learn a new way of doing something constantly. and after 15 years of continuously learning and growing as an artist and a professional I think I have found my "style". Though I will always be pushing to find new ways to make photography relevant in an Iphone/instagram world.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I used to only want to do fashion and beauty work but honestly it become a bit draining at times. It had no real meaning behind it. Their is something so special about creating images that a family will cherish. Memories that will never fade or go away. I love to add an editorial fashion flair to everything I do when appropriate still. But mainly I just love to make people feel good about themselves, loved, and to have something they will cherish.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All kinds, seriously though like from people who live in mansions to those that are homeless. I work with such a variety of people who have different beliefs than me and I love it. I love experience the way different cultures do life. Its on of my favorite non-photography related things about doing what I do. Is meeting people from all walks of life and peering into their world for a short time.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I really enjoy every session I do, I am very blessed to have such amazing clients. Again I really enjoy people and making them happy. I have to say though I got a chance to take some family photos of someone I used to work with whose mother had cancer. I just remember feeling so honored that they allowed me to create those memories for them. The father/husband tried to pay us but I couldn't take money from them. I truly felt like being able to create those memories was payment enough. When I found out she passed I wept like a baby, because I knew a little of what she meant to that family and community. She had such a sweet fire about her and was such a fighter. Anyway I still look back at those images and feel thankful that she got to see them before passing.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Price your options! Do not just go off of price alone but look at the Quality! My Images will be with you after you are gone. Your Children will cherish them as well your grandchildren and theirs. Weddings are special and so should be your photographs of the big day. If you are to be married for many years to come, break it down and you will only be spending pennies each day you are married. With me you get what you pay for regardless of what I am shooting. Quality images that will last forever! If you go to someone who is willing to shoot for less, don't be surprised if the results are boring, blurry, or unedited. Also be prepared to meet a photographer. Know you budget and what you are willing to spend and they will work within it. Know your "End Result", the must have images and how much or little editing you want. Maybe even have examples. Express what you like and don't like. The more information you give us the better a job we can do.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Wedding photography should really compliment the couple and should be able to tell a story. I love being part of your story and and sharing it with you. Its important to find out what you are paying for many wedding photographer do not include printing rights in their packages even if its a $4,000 package. They want to sell the prints later and only offer low resolution images for sharing. I however, always offer you the opportunity to have both options. You can purchase prints from me or any printing company you choose. I prefer to be completely transparent and give you an easy to understand contract to sign along with payment plan options. Another thing to think about is "you get what you pay for." If you go for the cheapest photographer you can find you "might" find not too amazing results. But, when you invest into someone who has experience and knows their craft then you will have images that not only you will cherish but for generations to come. This is not a hobby for me, it is my full time job not all photographers can say that so also ask that question. I am also someone who loves people and I try to give back in anyway I can including giving my services for a reduced rate for those on a fixed income or just have the need. I think when we bring giving into our business God will always stay present and that to me means more than any amount of money.
