Kate, we love you so much. Thank you for all of these gorgeous pictures. You really know how to capture the essence of your subjects and you helped K with her confidence so much these last few years. Beyond grateful...❤️
Let me start off by saying “THANK YOU KATE”….The confidence that came through in Sami’s pictures just warms my heart. Every shot that was taken —Sami’s smile just kept getting bigger which told me she was having fun. Kate, God has truly BLESSED you with a larger than life talent. The way you are able to pick just the right background, just the right lighting, and just the right pose…..it’s incredible. You are a true “gifted” artist. I knew Sami’s senior photo shoot was going to be nice but it turned out better than we could have ever imagined.
Sami and I had so much fun getting to know YOU and spending time with you. Thank you for capturing these memories that will FOREVER be etched in our lives.

I have had the pleasure of traveling with Kate and having her photograph me. It was my first professional photo shoot and she made me feel comfortable and beautiful! She has such a passion for her work and it shows! The photos were amazing and all my friends were in awe. Thank you, Kate!
I have used a few photographers for family pictures etc. throughout the years, but I have never found one as good as Kate. She has taken my two daughters senior pictures, plus a few other family pictures. I could not be more impressed with her. She is an amazing photographer and lady!
I have a teenage boy that hates having pictures taken. Kate Mitchem was so fantastic at getting amazing pictures and getting my son into the photo shoot. She is passionate about making her pictures a piece of art work. I wanted buy all her photos they are so amazing.
When you sit down to select your favorite pictures with Kate. She takes her time with you and helps you pick the best pictures so that you have a piece of art not just a photo. If you check out her website you will see what amazing photos she takes.
Kate went above and beyond a photographer she makes you feel comfortable. If looking for memorable photos definitely contact Kate Mitchem photography.
Kate Mitchem is our family’s go-to photographer. We would hire no one else. Her talent and ability to see through her lens what goes beyond the picture, but the true spirit of the individual is amazing.
Kate is AMAZING! She took pictures of my daughter a year ago and we were amazed!! Watching how excited she gets during each and every shoot is fabulous. She’s not just a photographer she’s an amazing artist. One of the things I love about Kate is she takes so much time to get to know her clients!
Enjoying the shoot , and then experiencing the amazing personalized presentation of your photos is something. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience .
She has done my sons senior photos and we are getting ready to do my daughters. All you have to do is look at her albums online to know that she is the best photographer! Her picture seriously could grace the pages of the magazine . . .
A Kate Mitchem photo shoot is something that we feel blessed to have experienced. . . The pictures speak for themselves
We set up a Sisters' Dance photo shoot with Kate to work with our girls and I cannot even to begin to express how transformative this experience has been for our family. Kate is professional with remarkable talent and an undeniable eye for showcasing beauty, but Kate also became a friend to us throughout the process. Kate pays attention to every last detail of her shoot and she has a warm and gentle way of getting to know her subjects, allowing them to open themselves up to her and to trust her. She captures the most exquisite, captivating, and touching moments. This is why we all become drawn to Kate's work. It touches us all and it makes us take notice. My Katie and Rachel have been in awe from the moment they started with Kate (they fell in love with her) and their confidence and self-esteem has only grown from this shoot. Both girls have said that this was one of the most wonderful experiences that they have EVER had. I wish I could put into words the look on their faces when they saw their images for the first time.
We are all so incredibly happy with the gift of these pictures that we will cherish forever and we absolutely cannot wait to work with you again, Kate. You are amazing! ❤️
"By far the best photos and the most professional and creative photographer that we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Thank you so much Kate!"
“Kate not only captured the very best moments of our daughter’s wedding, she went the extra mile in planning the perfect shoot and composition for Katie and Matt’s special day. Being a photographer myself, I appreciated how thoughtful and professional Kate was throughout the entire process. Her photographic skills are only surpassed by her customer relations skills. Thanks to Kate, we now have incredible pictures that bring back to life the wonderful memories of our daughter and son-in-law’s special day.”

I am forever grateful to Kate for doing much more than taking my daughter's senior pictures. Girls needs to feel pretty. We know our daughters are beautiful but our opinion doesn't count :). Kate worked with my daughter to bring out her personal beauty and uniqueness. She carefully selected settings and poses that would be a good fit. My daughter felt beautiful and special. After seeing some of her pictures her face lit up. She thanked me for taking her to have these pictures taken and she especially thanked me for finding Kate. I highly recommend every parent take their daughter to Kate for professional pictures. By the way, don't wait for senior year. Every year is precious and they change so quickly. The sooner a girl can connect her inner beauty with her outer beauty the sooner she can tackle her world with a sense of confidence and personal empowerment.
Moms, this goes for us as well. When was the last time you had a professional picture taken? Want to feel beautiful...give Kate a call. She will help. By the way, it's okay to embrace our beauty (both inner and outer)

From Kari (Nikki's Mother): "Absolutely love the pictures! Thanks so much! Nikki loved them! She's never done a photo shoot before so she is still on Cloud 9, and she loved the location and poses. Thanks for making today so fun and so easy for us! Loved everything, every little thing, every little detail about today!! I really loved and appreciated ALL the little details you paid careful attention to. I couldn't have imagined a better experience. So easy on our part, and you did the rest!!" (What they didn't realize is what a joy it was for me, to photograph Nikki and how natural she was in front of the camera).
I found Kate through a friend of a friend and as soon as I saw her work I knew I wanted to use her to photograph my newborn son. Kate immediately made me feel comfortable before I even met her. She responded promptly to any questions I had and always made me feel important. As a first time mom, I had no idea what it would be like to have a newborn and keep him happy and comfortable during a photo shoot. Kate was extremely patient and even though my son woke up a couple times, she managed take several beautiful pictures. I'm so happy I chose her to capture those priceless moments. I loved them so much I had her do a second shoot for Mother's Day which turned out amazing as well. I can't recommend Kate Mitchem enough!
"Kate was an amazing wedding photographer! She was very accommodating, and provided guidance every step of the way. We ended up with beautiful shots that take tremendous talent to capture. Kate managed to summarize the entire event without ever disrupting or stopping the action. We ended up with hundreds of pictures, all of them worthy to framed, and an amazing album to remember the day. I would use Kate again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend her to anyone planning a special event."
"Kate is an incredibly talented photographer. I've hired her to photograph both my wedding and family pictures but what I received back were more than just pictures; they were love, life, movement, and emotion all frozen in a blink of an eye. I look forward to her continuing to capture these life moments for many years to come!"
We really enjoyed our Family/Senior portrait session with Kate! She's down to earth and very professional. She had us laughing and feeling at ease the whole time. Our photos turned out wonderfully. I have gone on to highly recommend her to many, who have had an equally pleasant experience. You sense her genuine love of photography as well! We look forward to our next photo opportunity with her.
We have been fortunate enough to have Kate do two photo shoots for our family. Our "love" affair started with my daughters Senior portraits. Kate spoke with us at length to really get to know Megan and then suggested a location that was perfect. Once we set the date and time we felt comfortable that we had made the right choice. The day came, Kate was wonderful! Immediately she calmed Megans fears and went to work. Within minutes I felt like she was one of my best friends who loved my daughter. Megan loved her and we had a fun time capturing the special event. The pictures are not only beautiful but they capture her inner and outer beauty.
