A Chat with Kate Cox Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Kate specializes in natural settings and lighting–occasionally substitute lighting–with no restricting styles or filters to give you the most flattering images. She takes a mixture of posed, formal, and candid shots for cards, digital uses, and framing that come in high resolution, ready to print or upload.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started portrait photography seven years ago with the encouragement of my father who always picked mine and my siblings’ best features to accentuate. That is what I love doing with people! I want to accentuate your beauty and capture every day moments to preserve and enjoy for years!
What do you love most about your job?
I love when my clients come back to me months or years after their session, raving about photos from a year ago when their children were still little, or hearing from grandparents who received my pictures as a Christmas gift and cried with joy over them! I love making people smile or even cry with happiness!
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best was from a mother of toddlers who was so worried about getting them to behave, it was becoming a daunting task to get them out for portraits. We took extra time to let the kids have fun and run and ended up with the best candid shots. She had tears of joy that it was not as hectic as expected.
