I would highly recommend Katie Refling Photography. I chose to have a photo shoot with Katie after seeing her portfolio. I appreciated that there were women of all shapes and sizes, and every one of them looked beautiful. Katie has the ability to bring out beauty in her subjects in a very tasteful manner.
I decided to do a set of photos because I wanted an objective view of myself after having lost a lot of weight. I also wanted a record of what I looked like at 55, so that I would be able to see that middle age was not so bad.
The photo shoot itself was a great experience. Katie helped me pick out some outfits from the many that I brought with me. My hair and make up were done by a very patient professional, who left before any pictures were taken. I was a bit nervous, but that was quickly relieved by Katie’s professional approach. She directed me through every shot, and it felt like the most natural thing to be doing. I have always thought that I was not “photogenic,” but I have changed that opinion now that I have seen the pictures.
Once the session was done, I was sent proof sheets of the many shots that Katie took. There were so many great shots, it was fun, but a challenge to narrow down my choices for the final output. Katie then adjusted the photos for shadows and colour depth and removed some of the little flaws in my skin. I appreciated that Katie left my wrinkles in! After all, at 55, you’d expect to see wrinkles! I am very happy with the results!
I think this experience was good for my self confidence and self image, and I intend to do this again when I am 60! Thanks Katie!
