Once in a while, you meet someone for the first time but you feel like you’ve known them for years. This was our first impression when meeting Katie for our family shoot in Nantucket in the lobby of our hotel. She has an energy and charisma about her that makes you feel like old friends reconnecting. This helped tremendously when navigating a photoshoot with a 7 month infant, despite the chilly early May weather, our little one had no problem smiling for the camera with Katie’s amazing craft and wonderful talent for working with kids. We originally chose Katie based on her portfolio, but it was her charm and personality that made our shoot so fun and memorable.
We loved that she was a true Nantucket local who knew the island very well, especially as first time visitors ourselves, she made us feel so welcome and at ease. But more importantly, she has great instinct and suggestions. Our shoot was scheduled for Saturday, but when we arrived on Friday morning, she reached out and recommended that we do it that day and she was 100% spot on! The rest of the weekend was windy, cloudy, and overcast. We were able to hit all the spots within the hour with perfect sun and minimal wind, we even went a little over our time, but as a true professional, she made sure we had great shots and great scenery. We’re so grateful for her flexibility and suggestions!
She sent us a few teasers almost immediately, and they were amazing! Just in time for mothers day. And as a new mother herself, I cant imagine how much effort it took to get that done so quickly, so we’re super grateful for her going above and beyond! She is a true super mom! And as she promised, she sent the rest of the photos in 2 weeks which were stunning, not to mention, the envy of all our friends.
I definitely can’t imagine going with anyone else, nor having anywhere near as good of a time as we did; it was the highlight of our visit. And when we return to Nantucket, we’ll definitely be booking Katie again and this time we’ll also be friends just reconnecting! Sorry Katie, you are stuck with us now =) Thank you for capturing these memories!
