TESTIMONIALS – Squamish Photographer Reviews

“I feel so blessed to have had Katia present to document the birth of my first child, Fisher Niska on May 3, 2016. I was induced with oxytocin and cervadil and underwent a long and arduous labour. Katia was there every step of the way but never interfered with the doctors and nurses. She was like a fly on the wall!! I was overjoyed with the birth announcement she put together. The photos she chose for it were perfect and it will remain a cherished keepsake for my husband, myself and my friends and family. Not only did Katia take beautiful photos, she supported me through tough moments in the labour, brought water and offered words of kind encouragement when I was struggling. Her presence was invaluable and I would recommend her to anyone who is planning to have a birth photographer present for the welcoming of their child into the world. Thank you so much, Katia. Words cannot describe how grateful Brian and I are to have had you witness and document one of the most important events of our lives.”

“I recommend Katia to everyone who is giving birth naturally or by C-Section. I asked Katia to capture the first time I held my baby girl after I was wheeled into the maternity ward. This was soon after I woke from the anesthetic from my C-Section. Katia arrived very respectively and continued to be a great mixture of support and took just the most perfect, un-intrusive photos of me, my family and my newborn that I will forever cherish. I send my photography clients to her because birth photography is a different art form and she has the passion and gift for it. It’s also a great thing to invest in because you have professional photos to send right away for a birth announcement. Everyone appreciates this as compared to a blurry, too dark photo taken with someone’s cell phone! Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a reference.”

“Thank goodness for Katia! Originally I thought I was going to take pictures of the labour and birth, but my partner suggested we have Katia photograph this amazing event. Am I ever grateful! It freed me up to be at my partner’s side for the labour and the eventual birth of our daughter. If I were taking photos I would not have been as present and in the moment of this incredible day. The photos Katia took are beautiful and will be forever a part of our daughter’s birth story. Thank you so much Katia!

“I didn’t initially think of having a birth photographer at our labour. However, I am so grateful I did. Katia was so professional and blended in so well, I didn’t even notice her snapping away. The photos she took are absolutely stunning. They have given me a perspective on my labour and birth that I wouldn’t otherwise have. They will forever be part of Jacoba’s birth story, and, every year when I tell her about her birth, she will have photos to see as well – photos that capture her coming into the world and our initial hours together.”

“We have had the pleasure of working with Katia for our birth photography and family portrait sessions. Not only does she have a great eye for details, but she also is extremely professional and seamless. For the birth, she met us at the hospital and stayed for about 17 hours, capturing every precious moment. She was respectful of the medical staff and worked closely with us to understand our needs and desires. Katia brings this level of attention to all of her work, and the high quality pictures that you get with the packages that she provides is the best value we have ever encountered. We will be working with Katia for many years to come!

She went to all lengths to capture every wedding moment even with a groom who hates having his photo taken. Recommending her to everyone!”
