About Kathryn Jolly
Hello, My name is Kathryn Jolly and I would love to have the opportunity to photograph you and your children.
I am located in the Hills District of Sydney, Castle Hill, and I have a well equipped home based studio.
I am mad about portraits. Seriously obsessed. lol!
I love seeing my artwork that I created for you and your family hanging on your walls for everyone to love. I want to capture images that will be displayed in your home, or in treasured albums. Accessible, visible and printed by the very best printers in the industry, to make them timeless and lasting. Yes, we live in a digital age and clients love to view their images on a computer and share on social media, and for that reason all artwork comes with corresponding digital files. I have thousands of photos of my own children sitting on hard drives but the portraits that I enjoy every day are the ones that are printed and hanging on the walls of my home. Nothing quite measures up to a professionally printed portrait, and this is exactly what clients say when they view images in my studio. Come to my studio and you can see the amazing variety of printed media available and how awesome it looks.
I love colour and texture, but also dreamy black and whites and simple, understated looks. It is up to you to choose the look that you love, colour or more subdued tones. My studio is bursting with backdrops and props for creative parents who want a styled session. If classic understated look is what you are after, then my portrait skills can accommodate as well.
I love welcoming clients to my home, and love my job. Everyday brings something new and often funny, and definitely challenging. I do have blue knees from crawling around on the floor all day long, getting down to the level of my youngest clients. I also spend many sleepless nights editing sessions. So yes, if you Facebook message me in the middle of the night I often will answer!
I can't wait to meet you!
How long have you been a photographer?
Professionally, I have been shooting portraits for about 12 years.
How do I book you?
You can send me a message straight from this site, or email email@example.com or go to my Facebook page and use messenger www.facebook.com/kathrynjollyphotography
How far in advance do I book?
At this time 2 months in advance is best. I will always endeavour to find you a suitable appointment but I do get pretty busy. Book your newborn session as early as you can, these get pretty booked out quite in advance as I block days off for newborns.
Can I meet you?
Absolutely. I have an office in my home at Castle Hill and see all my clients there. I am happy to make your appointment late in the evening, after work if required. I am very flexible. Since social media is at everyones fingertips these days, I chat to a lot of my clients via Facebook Messenger and email as well.
Do you retouch your images?
Yes, all images are retouched. It is a labour of love to retouch images and make them into works of art. It takes time.
