    "To me, Katrina is such a warm, bubbly, fun and honest person and this radiates through her work. The characteristically warm tones throughout her stream are matched by just as well composed images. I always look forward to the fun and positive things from you Katrina! Plus, you are a Canadian and Canadians rock :)"

    "I'm in love with Katrina's stream! It's filled with so much life! Such vibrant and refreshing tones and a real heartwarmer. Her photos are warm and welcoming which is exactly what I love about them. They keep me hooked. Her portraits are also the best. They show true emotions and are very genuine. Her photos are not only edited beautifully but are beautiful in their own right. :)"

    "Visual Magic! That's the best way to describe Katrina's stream. I never know what to expect, but when I see she has posted for the day I find myself always impressed with her, and her photo's.
    Her locations are charming, and she is graced by an abundance of models; though she need not have them she can work her magic on a blades of grass.
    I have come to enjoy my interactions with this young Lady, and her lovely personality. This young women is someone you truly need to come to know."

    "Katrina's photos are nothing short of amazing. Her creativity and processing are just so fun, fresh, and unique. I just adore her style. The best thing is she doesn't realize how good she is, she's very modest.....which is a fantastic trait to have. I look forward to her stream everyday and she is an inspiration to me. XOXOXO"

    "I always look forward to checking out what new and inspired shots have found their way onto Katrina's photostream. Her intuition serves her well as she seeks out beautiful things to photograph; her natural creative eye is something to admire; and her quick growth into her newfound love of photography will hopefully grow even more as she continues to shoot and learn from others. When I think of Katrina's style, I think of soft light and vintage-like tones, which is so beautiful and timeless. You all better hope Katrina doesn't go anywhere anytime soon because you can learn a lot from her."

    "Wow, what to say... Katrina such an awesomely talented photographer. She's down with the bokeh, the naturey shots, the sunflares, the pretty shoes and the romantic skirts. In short - everything that's really important in life and photography :) Everytime I visit her stream I'm inspired and get ideas for things I want to try out for myself :)

    She's also a really sweet and encouraging gal, I'm so glad I have her for a flickr-friend!

    "Katrina's stream never ceases to amaze me! She's always finding these amazing original concepts that I (or anyone else for that matter) wouldn't have every thought of, and just executes them perfectly. Her style is just so uniquely her, and it works amazingly with every one of her photos.

    Her skill in finding subjects is exquisite, and as of late I've been extremely impressed by her conceptual portrait photography. On top of it all, even, she has a great sense of humour and never ceases to leave inspiring comments.

    Her talent is endless, and, on top of all that, she's from BC- go figure. ;)"

    "I count myself as rather lucky to have stumbled across Katrina's photostream a few months ago.

    She's got a fantastic quirky sense of humour, spots photo opportunities that others simply wouldn't see, takes fantastic and sometimes wonderfully random photos (flying pink umbrellas anyone?), and best of all... is an absolutely lovely person.

    I won't dwell on the fact that she thought I was a girl at first (I do have quite good legs I guess), and I won't mention that every time she uploads another photo I think to myself "How on earth does she make it look so easy?"

    One of my favourite Flickr streams and easily one my favourite Flickr friends.

    She really does need a shark costume to go with that pink umbrella though..."

    "Oh, Katrina, Katrina.
    Writing a testimonial for her has been somewhat overdue, seeing as I was inspired and awestruck from the moment I first experienced her stream.

    Her ideas are fresh and fun, she never ceases to amaze me with what she's thought up next. I constantly look forward to seeing her new photos.
    Oh, yes, and she's consistent! I can always, always count on loving her work.

    And {as if that's not enough} she's ever-faithful to leave sweet, thoughtful, and positively heart-warming comments for me.

    I am blessed indeed, possessing the privilege of knowing this girl!"
