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 use both natural light and studio lights to create beautiful portraits.
I specialise in colourful cake smashes and child photography. After shooting everything from families on location to weddings etc..I picked the type of photography I really love, kids in studio, and I am concentrating on that. I love the closeness to my subject when shooting in studio. Being able to sit on the floor together and just play and build trust, and have fun. And lets not forget lots of baby cuddling.
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.
I am a mum of two awesome teenage girls and a wife to a stressed out executive husband. We compliment each other, my arty constitution to his business like manner, lol!
We have a King Charles Cavalier dog with issues, and a large rose garden.
When I have a chance to take a break from the studio (which is not very often), I travel to far away places that I see on Instagram all year long, and dream of seeing them for real. Thank goodness for Instagram!
I love welcoming clients to my home, and love my job. Everyday brings something new and often funny, and definitely challenging.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or got 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.
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.
