Testimonials: I had a fantastic time with Katie yesterday at my one-to-one training session for photoshop composites and techniques. Katie was so welcoming and friendly - I asked so many questions and all were answered in a down-to-earth, easy to understand way that even I could grasp straight away! THANK YOU so much Katie for a wonderful insight into composite photography, I left feeling very inspired. I would totally recommend Katie's training to any photographer xx

Katie is an amazing photographer, she made my son feel so comfortable and he loved it. The photos are so good and my son will treasure them forever as he is with various dinosaurs. I would recommend Katie to anyone x

Absolutely brilliant experience... had a great time & learnt loads. Highly recommend this course. Katie is fantastic at what she does & is a really, really lovely lady. Her knowledge is second to none. Thank you again xx

Katie is a really lovely kind lady, she welcomed us in to her home & put our 3 girls at ease straight away. Our middle daughter doesn't usually like having her photo taken & isn't usually so relaxed & happy to take part. Katie put her at ease straight away & made the photo shoot fun!! We absolutely Love our photo's. Katie is amazing at what she does & we highly recommend her for all your family photo needs!! We love our magical Christmas shot of our 3 girls having a ride with Santa on his sleigh. Katie's photographs are of a very high quality. Thank you Katie for making the whole experience of the photo shoot so relaxed & fun, resulting in fabulous photo's. Xx

Katie has proven to have time and time again amazing perception and vision for a piece of artwork. She is such a kind person and friendly yet also professional! I've loved her ideas and style of work and she always manages to sprinkle something unexpected in whatever you ask <3 Absolutely amazing and would recommend again and again, you will never be disappointed or let down!!!

Katie is an Amazing talented Lady and I just Loved having photoshoots with her .We had two sessions with Katie for me and my son and every time she produced beautiful pictures.

The pictures are just stunning and wonderful memory to cherish forever and of top of that great quality. Absolutely professional and unique photographer. Thank you for a wonderful experience and Beautiful pictures!! We Love You <3 <3
Highly recommended indeed !!!

Thank you Katie for an amazing day yesterday. Thank you for being so generous with your knowledge and resources and for being so patient with us! I would highly recommend training with this very talented lady, you won’t regret it!

What an amazing experience we had - the shots taken of the girls were fabulous and it was so difficult choosing our favourite backgrounds. Katie & Denny were brilliant in getting the expressions and poses needed and worked brilliantly with the kids. Once we saw the poses with the backgrounds we were blown away - they were simply breath taking, some brought tears of joy to my eyes and others made me laugh out loud. Can’t wait to frame them and display them and also share them with family. Kids grow so fast - not sure how many magical Christmas’ we have left with the girls still believing so this seemed a great idea to capture some Christmas magic!!

Why I like the SWPP: Community and monthly contests and ability to progress

Tagline: Creating art, creating memories

Future plans: Start focusing on Photoshop mentoring, tutorials and videos and to do more weddings.
