“While beautiful lighting and composition are the foundation of all photographs, it is expression and emotion that give them life. With the technical aspects second nature, I am free to engage with people on a deeply personal level, put them at ease in front of the camera, and draw out natural expressions. This defines my work.”
“The smile is the expression of nuance. There are more subtle emotional shadings possible with a smile than with any other expression.”
– Gary Faigin

“Kathryn has the innate ability to capture the core personality attributes of her subjects, which is rare among photographers I have worked with in the past. She has a tremendous amount of patience, and an artistic savvy that stands out among professionals in her field.” Read More
