My photography career began when I took a position as a photographer at a local, upscale portrait studio. I gained extensive hands on experience in that job, but found that there was something missing for me creatively in that type of studio environment. I had a passion for a more creative style of portrait photography and wanted to offer a portrait experience that allowed for outdoor shoots, natural sunlight filtering through windows, and room for my clients to move freely and feel comfortable in front of the camera.
In 2009, I made the decision to start my own custom portrait photography business. After over 8 years in business now, I am so thrilled that I made the decision to follow my dream and create Kathryn Deane Photography. I am tremendously blessed to be able to do something I love every day and provide memories for my clients that they will treasure for a lifetime.
To me, Kathryn Deane Photography is all about colorful, modern images that truly reflect the style and personality of each of my clients. I strive to create a relaxed, natural environment that puts everyone at ease and allows the portrait experience to be laid back and fun. I believe that it is particularly important to connect right away with the children I am photographing and I make it my mission to build that rapport as soon as the session begins. As a former elementary school teacher, I have a true love for children and capturing their energy and spirit in my photos is one of the highlights of my job.
My photography specialty is creative portraiture for maternity, newborns, children, families, seniors, commercial/catalog work, and professional head shots. I also offer real estate photography services as well.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your photography questions, needs, and/or ideas. I look forward to having the opportunity to share the gift of photography with you in the near future.
