Working with Kate was just great! She was so patient and professional, and really has a way with babies! I was worried our little one might be fussy but even when she started to get upset, Kate managed to calm her down easily. (As a new parent, I felt like she did a better job than I could have at the time!) She's a baby whisperer!
You won't regret choosing Kate! She knows what she is doing and she was great to work with in general - flexible, friendly, and accommodating! So glad we trusted her with these special photos. We couldn't be happier!
Kate was amazing! She was incredibly patient with us, experienced, efficient with the time we had together, fun and professional! The process was super easy in terms of selecting our favorites and downloading our final photos, which we received minutes after we let her know we had selected them. She is great to work with and we highly recommend her (she was even able to get our dogs to look at the camera and smile :-D) We are excited to work with her again!
Kate was absolutely amazing. Taking pictures of 6 kids at one time ranging from 18 years old to newborn is a task I almost lose my mind doing at home. Kate was so patient and sweet. The newborn portion was breath taking! She was so patient with posing our son and when he fussed she could calm him. I love the no rush feeling with her because she is willing to take any amount of time needed to get the pictures she envisioning. Then when he pooped everywhere she didn't even blink an eye. Such a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back for another session!!
Kate was just a joy to work with! Very professional and so caring. She has truly found her calling. My wife has been researching photos for our baby for months and I was honestly concerned for the poor person that had to live up to my wife's expectations. Kate met and exceeded all of our needs. Highly recommended!
Our experience working with Kate was amazing! She quickly contacted us back for each correspondence, and really listened to what we wanted to incorporate into the sessions. Kate also had some great ideas which really helped us because we did not know what to expect and what we needed to be prepared for.
We weren't sure how the newborn pictures were going to turn out since this was our first child and this was new territory for us. Our little guy wanted to be awake for most of the session, but Kate just rolled with that and got some amazing pictures! We love that we get to see so much of his personality in those pictures, even though is only 10 days old.
Kate was very professional and always prepared. Before each session she also told us what we needed to do, which we found very helpful. We're so glad we booked her for a full year and hope to continue even after that!
Trusting Kate Florian Photography to capture precious family moments has been the best decision we have made. Kate works efficiently and makes everyone feel comfortable and safe. Our young son is very active and Kate did an amazing job keeping up and capturing all of his best features and personality. She always works hard to provide the best images possible and strives to finish her work quickly but with a creative eye.
I highly recommend Kate Florian Photography to provide you with quality photographic memories that will last a lifetime. I cherish every photograph that she has taken of my family and I look forward to working with her further in the future!
Working with Kate was fantastic! Our first experience with Kate was newborn session with our twins. This alone made me nervous...so many things can happen with two tiny babies. Kate was super friendly, professional, positive and relaxed from the moment we walked in the door, which made the photo shoot go perfectly for the babies as well as mom and dad! She was able to capture so many beautiful photos (including a few fantastic ones with our 5 year old who never cooperates for the camera), I truly was impressed!
Getting the finished CD of all of our photos to view and share with family members. It was so much fun to see all of the photos and how beautifully they turned out. You never know during the session how the final product will look and all of my expectations were exceeded when I looked through the pictures. Even more fun was seeing all of our family members reactions to the pictures, there were even a few happy tears shed!
Kate's personality really lends well to a positive experience photographing children, especially newborns. She was prepared for our photo shoot when we arrived and kept a positive, professional and calm attitude throughout the whole session, which was needed since I wasn't feeling any of those things. She met every single request we had for the day and didn't make us feel rushed when the babies needed fed or a diaper changed. The best part was every single photo turned out beautifully. I honestly can't wait for our next session!
Working with Kate is such a wonderful and positive experience. Her warmth and energy radiates and makes the session fun and relaxed which in turn, leads to amazing pictures. She is also very flexible with her schedule and makes herself readily available which for us like most parents, is cruicial while trying to fit pictures into a busy schedule. With Kate, it is enjoyable and easy to capture the first year of our daughter's life.
Kate's patience, sweet personality, and obvious talent for photographing children are our favorite aspects. It is so fun to watch her work because she will go the extra step to capture the perfect shot.
We have already recommended Kate to several of our friends and would recommend her to everyone. She is professional, flexible, fun, and takes beautiful pictures. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and are so happy we chose her to do our daughters photos. We will definitely continue to use her in the future.
When I was researching newborn photographers and their packages, Kate Florian Photography stood out amongst the rest! I was looking for a professional and talented photographer who was located in Lincoln that was skillful, devoted, and offered first year packages that included a disc of pictures with copyrights after each session – Kate met all of these specific requests. After visiting her website several times and comparing it to other photographers’, Kate’s work and style was exceptional! When I contacted Kate for more information, she replied promptly and answered all of my questions completely.
I especially valued Kate’s scheduling flexibility because the first few days of a newborn’s life can be unpredictable, busy, and stressful – Kate’s understanding and willingness to reschedule as needed was highly appreciated. During our newborn session, Kate was patient as the baby needed comforted, fed, and diaper changes between poses. Throughout poses, I really liked how gentle Kate was with the baby and that she always had the baby’s safety in mind. We’re very pleased with our experience with Kate so far and are looking forward to our future sessions!
We had a wonderful experience working with Kate! Anyone who would take her shoes off, walking around barefoot the rest of the photo session, at the command of a very wiggly two year old in order to promote a fun atmosphere to get fantastic pictures is a breath of fresh air. It can be difficult to find people who have a natural ability in working with toddlers and not getting frustrated. Our son was running all over UNL’s campus the evening we had our pictures taken, but Kate didn’t make him or us feel uncomfortable…and it shows in our pictures!
I have already recommended Kate to my family and friends. She made our family feel at ease and listened to the types of photos we wanted. I didn’t feel like we were “on the clock.” I felt like Kate really cared about getting “the shot” and had fun with us.
Put simply, Kate is the best. We love the photos she took of our newborn, and hope to have her take many more pictures of our family in the future.
