Kat is fantastic to work with - very understanding, professional, and extremely talented. We had family photos at sunset and she beautifully captured our children, especially as they were getting tired and cranky :) Thank you, Kat, for your time and the photos. They are very special to us and we cherish your work and your efforts. Thank you for everything!

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE KAT! She is so professional and very talented. I hired her for a gender reveal and she took the most beautiful pictures I could’ve asked for! I had a request early on to hide some lawn chairs that were in the background of a few photos and she hid them so well that I even forgot I had requested that until she asked. I promise you will NOT regret hiring her! I ALWAYS recommend her to anyone that is looking for a photographer. She will always be my go-to girl!

Kat - I can not thank you enough for capturing such a special day in our lives! Not only did you capture beautiful portraits but also candid photos that I would have missed. Thank you so much and I will forever cherish these photos❤️ If you are wondering if you should book kat, she literally makes your big day stress free, is always responsive, and just overall a great photographer. I promise you will not regret it.

Kat has done 4 sessions for us, newborn, 1 year, and two family sessions and each time was able to provide us with beautiful photos! It’s not easy getting two toddlers to smile at the same time and she always manages to get multiple perfect pictures. Cannot recommend her enough!

I found Kat when looking for fall sessions. She was responsive and able to find a date that worked for both of us! Kat captured our family perfectly and we cannot wait to share our pictures on our Christmas card! We are looking forward to many more sessions with her over the years to come!

I highly recommend Kat! She is talented, professional, and fun to work with. We used her for the first time this year for our family/sons birthday photos and our photos were great. I can say with the utmost of certainly we will be using her again in the future photos!!

Kataryna did an amazing job with our family photos! She was so incredibly friendly, professional and easy to work with! She handled our active toddler so well and was able to capture exactly what we were looking for!

Kat definitely knows how to catch a beautiful moment on a photo! We are so happy with the photos she did for our daughters senior pictures. She’s so friendly and easy to work with. Thank you again Kat!

Kat is AMAZING! She is fun to work with and has a wonderful talent! I had previews the next day and the final album a week later! I will absolutely be calling her for any future phot needs!

I found Kat while scouring all of facebook for affordable Chicagoland area photographers. My husband and I didn't want to spend a ton of money on our wedding, and I must've spent hours searching for potential photographers. Clicked around Kat's website and fell in love with her photography style!
From our first conversation via instagram, I felt like we hit it off. I had messaged a few other photographers as well. Everyone was sweet, but I really was drawn to Kat. One of the best decisions we made for the wedding was to hire her! She responded to every question and message in a very timely manner, and boy did I have a ton, LOL!
The day of, Kat and her second shooter, Arleigh, were everything I hoped for and more! Kat is super personable and it really felt like I was having a friend take our wedding photos. She made us feel really comfortable throughout the entire night. We initially planned for our ceremony and portrait photos to be outdoors, but it rained for most of the day. Kat had a clear umbrella for us to use for some outdoor photos, and so many ideas for taking photos indoors. When there was a break in the rain, Kat and Arleigh snuck off my husband and I into the venue's backyard for some photos so we didn't totally miss out on those!
So sorry for the long review, but long story short, hire Kat!! She sent us a few previews the day after our wedding and we absolutely loved them. We can't wait to see the rest! If we are blessed with a child in the near future, we would love to hire Kat again to take our family photos!

We worked with Kat three times and each time she has been fantastic. Our first session our two year old was not interested in having her picture taken but you’d never know from our gallery! Kat listened to what we wanted for our family/maternity session, worked with our hectic schedule, and the photos were beautifully done. Lastly, she photographed a newborn session for us and was so patient and adaptable with our baby. She is very professional, kind, personable, and accommodating. I will use her for our photos again!
