I am Kate, a little (and I mean little, 5 ft 1 to be exact) individual from Bursledon, Hampshire with a big heart and a glass half full outlook on everything in life. I am a small business owner, running my newborn, baby & family photography business across the Hampshire area. I absolutely love what I do, seeing the emotion & joy on my clients faces when they see their portraits, is why I love my being a family photographer.
As soon as I graduated with my Photography degree in 2012, I started running my business and opened a tiny studio in Portsmouth (my home town). My business has evolved over the years and I now work from home, with photography sessions taking place on location or in clients homes. With newborn photography, my clients much prefer the comfort of their own home for their session & families love having shoots outdoors where children and toddlers are much more at ease, having fun playing in a park/forest or at the beach!
The Covid-19 situation has put my business through struggles, mainly financially, not being able to conduct any photography sessions during this time and in the near future. The new climate that we face is uncertain and will come with a lot of changes and rules no doubt, that will affect my business.
Being a small business owner, self-taught in areas of self-employment and business, now is a really important time for me to undertake some credible business training to help me secure the future of my photography business & gain the knowledge I will need to stay in business in a post-covid world.
I wish I didn't have to, but I do need to ask for your help to fund this training, so I can continue helping families record memories they can keep & treasure forever. I'm sure you will agree with me that family & memories are so important, now more than ever before. To thank you for your amazing generosity and support I will reward you with one of the following highly discounted photography packages or novelty gifts depending on the amount donated, along with a personal thank you card from me.
Donate £5 - email me a photo & I will post you a personal photo keyring (any UK address)

Photography sessions will all take place in 2021, within 25 miles of Bursledon will have travel included. I am happy to do shoots further away, but there will be a small fee to pay depending on the distance, towards fuel!
These can be provided as a gift voucher (not containing price paid) if giving as a gift to somebody.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my business during this time. If you are able to donate, no matter how small, I hope you enjoy the service I provide for you & know that this small person is doing a big happy dance when you do!
