Kind words

Who doesn’t like to hear kind words? It always makes my day that my work has made someone happy!


Kathy you are truly an amazing and professional artist, brimming with patience and kindness – a perfect combination when working with the teenagers and fur babies all in one photo session. You have given our family the gift of irreplaceable memories of childhoods, surrounded by the love of our gorgeous animals.  Truly thank you!

Our experience with Kathy has been absolutely fantastic. Her attention to detail and engaging approach resulted in a collection that is very meaningful to us. It is normally so hard to capture those special moments with Jukey and Kathy has done just that, producing a truly beautiful collection. The photos have captured Jukey’s unique personality and our connection with him so well. These images fill us with joy every time we look at them. It was also particularly wonderful to work with someone who, like us, has a deep love and appreciation for animals.

KMP_Davies_F_2016-04-11_Low- Res-124Kath is amazing! She has such a big, warm heart and developed a bond with our crazy Gordie immediately. She took her time and captured him in his natural surroundings, being the goof that he is. She took far more shots than I required and looked like she was just shooting that camera because she loved what she does. And I think that is why she will always capture the essence of her subject…because she believes in her work and loves it. I would highly recommend her.

KMP_Colls_K_2016-03-20_Low-Res-1My photo shoot with Kathy was such a wonderfully fun experience for my dogs and me. Kathy made us all feel very relaxed and comfortable and she was so very patient with my naughty spaniels!  Nothing was posed or staged and the photos are such an honest and beautiful portrayal of the loving bond I have with my dogs. I couldn’t be happier with my documentary style images and have no hesitation in recommending Kathy to all who wish to capture that special bond with their furry or feathered friends.

Buddy-3On the day you arrived to do the shoot, you were so wonderful with our little man “Buddy”. As he is a rescue doggie, we are not too sure how he may take to some people. But you were so warm, caring and loving towards our lil guy. You were very patient as we tried to get some shots, and Bud would run off to bark at the neighbour and then come back.

We then received our photos to which we were blown away with. Your absolute attention to detail has been over whelming. The way you presented your photos and the little extra gifts with the photos; really stand out from any other photography work we have ever had done. We are going to hang our precious pictures very proudly on our wall.

You have made our precious “Buddy” look like a movie star. We would recommend you to anyone wishing to get any works done of their beloved pets. We wish you all the best for your future and look forward to having some more family photos with our pets in the future.

Tina_Mark_ZaraThank you so much for dropping off the photo book and canvas today.  They are beautiful works of art and yes, more tears were shed!  We are so happy to have our Zara around us again and we will have her paw prints on our hearts forever.

Pippa_2I just wanted to say thank you to you Kathy for making our shoot such a wonderful experience. You were professional, yet personable and made sure you took on my ideas and likes. Thank you for being so flexible with weather and our 15 month old daughter. You went with it when she wandered off and we got some fantastic shots because of it. Your passion for what you do is evident in the pictures you take. We’re so happy with the final product and will treasure these photos in our home for many years to come.
