J'aime prendre des photos.

I am passionately devoted to capturing meaningful portraiture + documentary photography. Although I enjoy composing creative explorations from time to time—particularly with self-portraiture—my primary interest in photography has always been to record the spontaneity of every day life as it happens around me. I use my camera as my pen to visually document my life's perennial journal. The memories + the people I share them with is my true inspiration. That is what's important. Without them, life can get pretty bland, don't you agree?

    "It is rare that you come across a photographer on here as diversely talented as Kathy is. Her subjects run the gamut from humorous to tender and heartwarming and everything in between. Her portraits are among the best I've ever seen. She always captures not only the right moment, but the right feeling as well.

    Thanks for being an inspiration, Kathy."
