“Kat's photos are like visual poetry. She shoots from the heart and in so doing, she captures beauty. My experience working with Kat has been easy, effortless and fun. She is beyond committed when it comes to the preparation process, she directs beautifully and edits her work exceptionally naturally. In addition to her professionalism, Kat has a kindness that is rare which makes working with her a very special experience. I highly recommend her as a photographer, I can guarantee you she will surpass your expectations and deliver you exactly what you need.” - Emma L
We have a 30 minute chat online where we get to know each other. I ask you questions that will help me to get to know you better. This will allow me to find out what your intentions are behind doing the shoot, as well as what you are hoping to get out of it.
I give you advice on the next steps forward as well as some homework for you to do so that we are on the same page as to exactly what you are looking to get out of your photoshoot. Should you need it I am able to guide and advise you on what to wear for your photoshoot.
Your session starts with being pampered by one of our hair and make up artists. The number of looks and set options as well as whether a make up artist is included in your photoshoot will depend on the package chosen and the themes that we discuss in your clarity session.
Outfit styling is to be arranged by you, the client. We have a small client closet that we are in the process of starting up which you can use to add to your looks. We are available and happy to give you advice on styling ideas as well as what looks good on different body types in the lead up to the shoot. This will be covered in your clarity session.
We have some wardrobe additions on set including things like blankets, fabrics and faux fur items for you to make use of if you so choose.
For legacy portrait sessions we will have a consultation call in the lead-up to your shoot, once the deposit has been paid, to discuss location/s (if applicable) and refine outfit ideas.
Retouching and Image Reveal
I take the time to pre-select only the best of your images which are edited and uploaded for you to choose from. It is up to you which images are to be in your final selection.
Each package includes a certain amount of images. If you love your final images so much that you want more images than was included in your chosen package, pricing will be shared with you before your reveal so that you are confident in your final selection.
Digital products (digital images without prints) turnaround time can be up to 2 weeks from the date of your shoot.
A rush job of 3-4 days can be done by doing post production on the images in overtime. Rush edits cost an additional R2 500.00.
If you would like prints, most notably a photo book, please allow 4-5 weeks for design of the photo book as well as printing by our supplier.
Overall, if you are interested in prints the best timing to book your photoshoot is at least 6 weeks before the deadline date to make sure that there is enough time for the shoot, post production printing & delivery of your products to the studio.
Let's Talk Deposits & Payment Plans
As the experience is a part of the shoot most of our rates, include a HMUA (hair and make up artist). The full rate is alongside each package listed below.
HMUA is not included in the Raw Package.
We ask a deposit to secure your booking. This is needed to secure your date. The deposit amount will be discussed in your clarity session. If you would like to pay the fee in full up front we appreciate it.
There is also a payment plan option. Let me know if you would you like to hear more about this option in your clarity session.

Empowerment can be as sexy (or not) as you want it to be. We offer self-love and personal branding photo sessions, as well as boudoir photoshoots. The below images are examples of some of the empowerment portrait sessions that we have done for some Queens along the way.
