"Thank you all so much for taking the time to give your feedback about my children's portrait photography. It's a privilege to be invited into your home to capture "A Day In The Life" telling the story of your family in pictures."
"Kate made me feel comfortable & relaxed for my pregnancy photography, being at home also helped as some of the photos were of me naked so it helped me feel at ease.
I was very excited to see my photos so quickly, they’re absolutely brilliant. The photos were all above & beyond what I expected which made it very hard to decide which ones I wanted.
I would highly recommend Kate if you’re looking for some lovely bump photos and natural baby photos."
Nikki – "Bump and Baby" pregnancy photography in Farncombe, Surrey GU7
"The final results of our baby photo shoot exceeded our expectations. We are delighted with our photographs. We love all of them and have struggled to choose - We love the photos of our daughter asleep in her cot as they are so natural and beautiful. We are very happy with our family shots too. Kate did a great job."
Alison & Andrew - Baby photography in Redhill, Surrey RH1
"Thanks Kate, I'm impressed, really pleased with them. I was a bit nervous but I’m glad I was brave enough to do it in the end because I know I would have regretted it if I didn’t have any professional pregnancy photos done. Mum says you're a very talented photographer and wants to order some too."
Charlotte - SHOOT 1: "Bump and Baby" pregnancy photography in Godstone, Surrey RH9
"I love them all! How do I decide? There's so many that I like. Thank you so much. I'm so excited and can't wait until our next baby photo shoot with you when he's 6 months old."
Charlotte - SHOOT 2: Newborn photography in Godstone, Surrey RH9
"This is definitely our best baby photo shoot yet. They’re gorgeous! In my favourite photo the detail in his eyes are so sharp and you can clearly see his first tooth. The one in his cot with his toys looks like it could be a baby magazine cover! Thankyou thankyou Kate!"
Charlotte - SHOOT 3: Baby photography in Godstone, Surrey RH9 (at 6 months old)
"Brilliant Kate, you've done it again! What a precious set of photos to mark the different stages of our son's development over his first year."
Charlotte - SHOOT 4: Baby photography in Godstone, Surrey RH9 (at 1 year old)
"I was keen to have some lasting portraits of my 21 year old son. He was a reluctant subject but Kate met him at the reccie visit the day before and on the shoot day she chatted and struck up a rapport to make him feel at ease. The result is a range of wonderful natural images of Stephen looking very relaxed, not at all stiff or posed.
We are delighted with the results, even Stephen is pleased. I booked Kate on the strength of a glowing recommendation. It was a pleasure to meet her and I would use her again on future family occasions."
Ruth – Portrait photography in Westerham, Kent TN16
"Thank you so much for these photos and for your excellent work! Wow, really impressed! We had quite a fun time but some difficulty in deciding ones to choose, because they are all sooooooo good! Grenville has such a spirit of excellence and he wants the photos mainly for his website, to include a variety of poses which would open up into other links. Thank you so much for your help Kate."
Laura – Head shot photography in Crowhurst, Surrey RH7 (for a composer)
"Kate, thank you so much for the safe arrival of the photos. I've had great fun putting most of them into frames already. They have turned out well, it was so difficult to decide which ones to have printed, but on the whole I'm sure I have made the right decisions.
Thank you very much. There will be no way I can ever forget the occasion now!!!, not that I really want to remember which Birthday it was!
Best Wishes, and Good Luck in all that you do."
Elisabeth - Family photography in Blindley Heath, Lingfield, Surrey RH7
"Thank you Kate, I’m thrilled! You really are a very talented children's photographer and made it so much fun for them at the same time. The framed photos look stunning and it makes me smile every time I see them. Will and already have been referring you to all my friends."
Catherine - Children's photography in Sevenoaks, Kent TN13
"I found my head shot photography shoot to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience thanks to Kate's relaxed yet extremely enthusiastic and professional approach to her work. I certainly got my money's worth - both in terms of Kate's time and of the photos themselves, which are excellent."
Robbie - Head Shot photography in Reigate, Surrey RH2 (for an author)
"Wow! Thanks Kate. Oh they are so lovely! I'm SO glad we did it. He looks so cute in some of them and he's changed so much already between 5 days old and now at 4 weeks. Still cute but more alert and aware. Thank you!"
Sarah – Newborn photography in Reigate, Surrey RH2
"We had been thinking for some time of having some professional photos taken of our newborn son, and by chance came across some work on display by KLK Photography at Heaven Nutfield. Immediately, I wanted to talk to Kate about creating some similar work for my family. I especially liked the natural style that she has, which really comes through in her photos. We wanted to avoid stiff, formal portraits and capture relaxed, personal and happy representations of our family. We were not disappointed. Kate produced fabulous pictures and was very thorough, personable and professional. We shall definitely use her again and would recommend her wholeheartedly."
Caroline & Tony – Baby photography in Reigate, Surrey RH2
"Great relaxed atmosphere with children. Excellent quality photos – Kate really cares about the result!"
Paul & Christy - Family portrait photography in Richmond upon Thames, Surrey TW9
"Thanks so much Kate for your patience, professionalism, great humour and sense of fun during our recent shoot. The boys were delighted with the photos, so funny hearing their comments when looking at the contact sheets - they clearly had a great day and remember it well! The photos are great, really capturing their personalities. I hope to use you again in the future."
Becky & Ed – Family photography in Teddington, Middlesex TW11
"Kate’s approach was unobtrusive resulting in some delightfully relaxed shots of family and friends enjoying our garden party on a very special occasion."
Rose & Alec - Special Event party photography in Nutfield, Surrey RH1
"Kate came to our house to take photo's of our newborn with her big sister (a temperamental 2yr old) and was brilliant with both kids and with us! I was disappointed as it was raining that day and I was doubtful Kate would get any shots that would be any good but I was blown away at the variety of lovely photo's that she produced, almost effortlessly it seemed. Very natural and relaxed, professional and fun. The ones of the girls together are favourites especially the one where our eldest is looking directly at you and there's so much going on behind her eyes. She looks calm, serene, yet thoughtful and pensive. Also the lovely shots of her smiling which are so hard to capture as she usually does the classic toddler grimace. Each photo tells a story and captures the essence of what we see in the girls everyday. I have no hesitation on recommending Kate, she's lovely and the photo's speak for themselves."
Nickie & Rob – Family photography & baby photography in Dorking, Surrey RH4
"We are really delighted with our beautiful photos. Thankyou so much Kate for all your hard work!"
Megan & Andrew - Family photography in Chipstead, Surrey CR5
"My maternity photoshoot at home was a lovely experience, taking the time to capture those special moments before the birth of my baby girl. Kate was very professional and even when I was flagging she pushed gently to get me a selection of shots I would be happy with. I love the results! Thanks Kate."
Dara - "Bump To Baby" pregnancy photography in Mayfair, London W1J
"Our family photo shoot for Mark’s birthday was exactly what we wanted; informal and formal shots of the extended family. We are so pleased with the results. Not an easy task to marshal so many people for the posed shots and taking flattering informal shots of everyone from Granny to a newborn baby!
Well done and thanks, Kate."
Donna & Mark – Special Event birthday party photography in Godstone, Surrey RH9
"Kate's friendly, professional service began from my initial enquiry and continued throughout the entire process.
Kate arrived early and spent the morning with us, taking photos in our garden and out on a local walk. She quickly gained the children’s trust and was able to take a wonderful array of pictures, with them looking relaxed and happy – just what we wanted! She managed to create a portfolio of both individual and group shots that reflected everyone perfectly. Her calm disposition and infinite patience ensured that the shoot ran smoothly and with the minimum of chaos from the children.
The quality of Kate’s final photos was just as impressive. I would have no hesitation in recommending her highly to anyone looking to capture a series of really special family photos.
Kate, many thanks again for our beautiful collection of photos celebrating our family as we are now."
Sarah & Cormac - Family photography & children's photography in Oxted, Surrey RH8
"A big part of what I do is helping people get over the fears in their life, so it was with some professional annoyance that I found I was terrified at the idea of having my photograph taken. Anyway, I bit the bullet and was very happy with both the session and the end result ordering seven of Kates head shot photos, for me to be happy with that many of the pictures is a real testament to Kates skill and not only as a photographer."
Oliver – Headshot photography in Guildford, Surrey GU2 (for an NLP life coach)
"Kate is very professional and will endeavour to get the perfect shot for you. This is the second time Kate has taken pictures of our family at home and we have been delighted with the photographs. She is very patient when dealing with young children and babies and has some good ideas for creative and memorable shots."
Lucy and Edward – Baby photography in Chelsea, London SW3
"My family loved having their pictures and portraits taken by Kate. She made everyone very relaxed and she came up with some great ideas that we would never have thought of. She also achieved the previously impossible task of making our 2-year old son completely confident in front of the camera, resulting in some lovely images. The biggest compliment that I can pay is that when our second child is born, we will be asking Kate to come back and take some more pictures."
Jason and Emma – Family photography in South Godstone, Surrey RH9
"I have used Kate Kershaw on two occasions, once for actor publicity shots of my 12 year old son and once for family portraits on canvases. Kate was well-organised and professional while managing to make the photo shoots fun. The end results are fantastic and have been much complimented. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone looking for portrait photography."
Michelann & Richard – Family photography & Head Shot photography in Outwood, Surrey RH1 (for an actor)
"Kate Kershaw took photographs of my two children at our local playground at Master Park in Oxted. I was thrilled with these natural looking photos – a collection of black & white and colour which are now on display around the house. Kate was fantastic during the shoot – striking a good balance of professionalism whilst keeping the photo shoot relaxed, fun and interesting for the children whose patience can run out without warning. As a family we had a great morning out. The photos really captured the girl's personalities whilst they were playing. I would recommend Kate to any of my friends - she has real attention to detail and her work reflects this!"
Sally-Anne & Stuart – Children's photography in Oxted, Surrey RH8
"We were delighted with the photos and thought Kate did an excellent job working with 2 small children who did not always want to do what we wanted! The photos were of a very high standard and we would definitely use Kate again."
Katie & Rob – Children's photography in Reigate, Surrey RH2
"We thoroughly enjoyed our family photo shoot with Kate. She gave us lots of ideas for locations & poses as well as practical advice about clothing & colours. She put the children at their ease very quickly and was also most flexible about taking on board our many requests & suggestions. The results were great and made wonderful Christmas presents for the rest of the family."
Liz & Keith – Family photography & children's photography in Godstone, Surrey RH9
"Thanks so much Kate. The birthday party photos really capture the fun of the day and the animated expressions on all the children's faces. The photos of each child were lovely to send inside the thank you cards."
Catherine & Simon – Special Event birthday party photography in Weybridge, Surrey KT13
"Wow! The photos are amazing! Can't choose, I love them all! Thank you so much. They'll make perfect family Christmas presents. Such a personal way of celebrating a very special time for us."
Lisa & Robbie – Children's photography in Oxted, Surrey RH9
"Just received your photos, they're fab. Thank you; it was a lovely birthday present for Nick."
Bianca & Nick – Children's photography in Salcombe, Devon TQ7
"Really happy with the photos Kate took of our family, she is very friendly, professional and open to suggestions and put the whole family at ease, we enjoyed the session and were really pleased with the outcome. Will and have already recommended Kate to others."
Jo & Peter - Family photography in Bletchingley near Redhill, Surrey RH1
"We had commissioned a family portrait of 12 for a 50th wedding anniversary present which was not an easy task. Kate visited us beforehand to make sure she got to know us and where we were having the shoot which made it all much easier on the day. We all thoroughly enjoyed the shoot, were really happy with the photos and the prompt service we received from Kate. The result was two very happy grandparents."
Paul & Kate – Family photography in Reigate, Surrey RH2
"We are delighted with the friendly, professional, personal service Kate offers. Having photo's taken at home creates a wonderfully relaxed and flexible setting where pets and the unexpected can be catered for!"
Shona & Tony - Family portrait photography in Surrey
"We were delighted with the photos KLK Photography took at our Summer Ball, Kate really captured the essence and feel of the evening."
FROTH committee, Hawthorns School – Special Event party photography in Bletchingley, Surrey RH1
"Thanks for capturing such professional looking photos of the kids. I've got a few of them up on the wall at home and I still love looking at them to remember the boys exactly as they were at that age."
Rachel & Alan – Children's photography in Brighton, West Sussex BN1
"The photos are amazing and I'm so pleased with them. Instead of me always taking our photos and being left out it's great to be included in some beautiful family photos. I'll be sending you another order for both sets of grandparents as soon as they've chosen."
Aly & Paul – Children's photography in Nutfield, Surrey RH1
"Hi Kate, thanks very much for your endless patience - I knew you'd quietly win her round in the end. We are currently refining a list of photo numbers and once we have an idea of quantity we'll let you know! Thanks so much."
Lisa & George – Children's photography & baby photography in Oxted, Surrey RH8
"Kate attended the first anniversary party for our handbag boutique and took photos of our handbags and customers. She then made a large collage of the photos that we hung on a wall in the boutique and it has been on display ever since! Kate was very professional and unobtrusive whilst she was taking the photos, and managed to capture the feel of the evening perfectly."
Sarah – Special Event party photography in Westerham, Kent TN16
"The task was to get a few decent outdoor shots of myself - not an easy job as I absolutely hate being on the "wrong" side of the camera. Kate came exceptionally well prepared, with sketches presenting her ideas for the scene, which helped a lot. We had a look around for a suitable location where the light was right, and Kate didn't mind climbing fences and getting her clothes wet. She even made me feel comfortable in front of the camera! And the resulting photos were delivered quickly and they were exactly what I had in mind. I would recommend Kate at any time!"
Harald – Head shot photography in Nutfield, Surrey RH1 (for a photographer)
"Kate is very easy-going, undemanding and good to work with. She gave us good advice on what to wear for the best results in our situation. The preliminary visit to "suss" out our home for light & venues for the shoot saved time on the day. She also asked what sort of pictures we would like so that she had some ideas before the day. We all enjoyed the relaxed session and were very pleased with the results. (She is also very easy to contact!). Many thanks Kate!"
Paula & Peter - Family photography & baby photography in South Nutfield, Surrey RH1
"I booked KLK Photography for my daughter's birthday party, so that I could spend less time worrying about capturing the moment, and more time enjoying the occasion with my little girl and our friends. Kate asked me prior to the event what I was looking for from the photographs, and on the day itself was punctual, professional, polite and efficient, getting some fantastic shots of my daughter and all of her friends, without getting in the way of the children. She chatted to the children to get them at ease with the camera. She captured precious memories for me and my family and I would happily recommend her to anyone."
Lisa – Special Event children's birthday party photography in Ockley, Surrey RH5
"We had a really great, fun couple of hours during our photo shoot with Kate, with plenty of laughs along the way. She has the knack of making you feel totally at ease and unself-conscious. We were delighted with the results and it would have been really easy to pick far too many! We would be more than happy to recommend Kate's services, she has the mix of relaxed friendliness and professionalism just right."
Helen & Colin – Family portrait photography in Reigate, Surrey RH2
"I wanted to surprise my husband with some professional photographs of our fast growing up children for a special birthday. Kate was brilliant at capturing a portfolio of natural photos of the children over the course of the day. They didn't realise that the fun they were having was translating into such a personal and surprise gift. Kate was a natural herself and was soon seen by the children as a fun friend, not someone who was doing a job - they still talk about the day they played and she took pictures and ask whether she can play again with them soon. My husband was delighted with the framed pictures we chose for him and was amazed when he got to see the portfolio we chose them from - so much so he took the portfolio to his family and now several Aunties/Uncles/Grandparents also have pictures to be proud of. I have no hesitation in recommending Kate as someone who can take pictures capturing that "natural" moment, particularly of children who can't be expected to pose or pretend. I am sure we will be using Kate again as our children continue to grow and have fun!"
Carrie & Tim – Children's photography in Caterham, Surrey CR3
"Kate took some fantastic photos of my children with their friends. She spent time talking to them first as they played in the garden to put them at ease, and then gradually started to photograph them unobtrusively so the resulting pictures were very natural. Kate offers a great service, from the day of the shoot which was brilliant fun, to the pictures which I received quickly afterwards. The only problem I had was choosing which copies I wanted as they were all gorgeous! I will definitely recommend her, and would certainly use her again."
