Kind Words





Awe! You are simply amazing! Love these! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will treasure these forever.  (Bridgette Pike 8/17/21)







Our family has known Kathy and her family for many years, but this is the first time we have had the opportunity to have her do our family photos. Our children surprised us with a photo shoot for our 40th Anniversary when they all were home. Kathy did an exceptional job from start to finish, we all love the photographs she took. She was extremely patient with the grandchildren from 6 months to 5 years and worked tirelessly to get just the right shots of everyone. We highly recommend her to anyone, you will not be disappointed. She is very professional and never gives up on getting the perfect shot and getting the pictures to us in record time. Thanks so much Kathy for capturing our family so well. (Valerie Bishop, 8/16/21) 






We recently went to our 6th session with Kathleen. She never ceases to amaze me with her work and how fast she gets your photos back to you! We just got my little girls 1st birthday photoshoot back and I am speechless, completely in awe! If you are looking for an amazing, friendly, affordable photographer, Kathleen Chapman Photography is who you’re looking for! (Kelly Thayer, 5/13/19)

Thanks to Kathleen Chapman Photography for the adorable Christmas photos. Kathy captured wonderful photos our two little kiddos, which I will say it is not an easy task, that we will have forever. So many memories shared and saved!!! I would highly recommend her!!! (Anna Barnard, 1/22/19)
Kathy really pays attention to the details of lighting, making sure all hair and positioning are just right and makes the whole experience stress free! Thank you for such beautiful headshots of my daughter for her dance competition.  (Donna Riley, 3/5/19)
Kathy was so sweet and kind with our entire family but especially with our three young girls! She was very patient with our youngest (16 months) as it was a cold day outside by letting us warm her in our van for a few minutes at a time to keep her in a good mood!  My husband and I can’t express enough how much we love all of our photos! Kathy had them back to us to view and purchase in just a few days!  We can not wait to work with Kathy again!! (Danielle Hallada, 11/13/18) 
Kathy did a wonderful job with our newborn’s pictures! She is such a charismatic and genuine person and through her work these characteristics are shown throughout! She has such a natural and relaxed feeling in the photos and that feeling is present during the photo shoot! She makes sure all family members are important also and included! It was a great experience and would highly recommend Kathy to do any photos! We are absolutely in love with all of the photos! (Kimberly Brockway, 10/29/18)
I had Mommy and Me photos done by Kathy last weekend and received them this week in awe. I absolutely love them, she took my wants and suggestions and worked with me on everything I was looking for. Will definitely be getting future photos done by her.  (Jennifer Sorensen, 10/6/18)
Kathy is an amazing photographer we loved every photo she took for our newborn session! She made us feel comfortable and spent alot of time with us getting the perfect pictures! I would rate her 100 stars and recommend her to everyone! Thank-you Kathy! (Kayla Rinker, 9/24/18)
When I had photos done with my two young sons, Kathy was so easy to work with. From the time we set up the appointment, to the actual day of, and her quick turn around of our photos, her patience with us was impeccable. It made what could have been a frazzled session much calmer. The pictures turned out amazing and when we travel back to NY, we will be setting up another session! Thank you so much!                           (Natasha Coles, 9/6/18)
Thank you so much for a beautiful session! We weren’t sure if we were going to get the photo shoot in because of the rain but Kathy was amazing and we made it happen when the rain stopped. This is a gorgeous location and Kathy was wonderful!  (Erica Soper, 8/19/18)
When you book a session with Kathy you will feel so comfortable and welcome and your little ones will love her. My daughter didn’t want her session to end! I will be coming back to Kathy time and time again to capture precious moments of my daughter.           (Alicia Love, 9/5/18)
Kathy is a very talented photographer. I'm so in love with my photos that I can't wait to go back! She is very creative and also welcomes any ideas that you may have for the type of picture you're looking for. I definitely recommend her 100%!
(Kat Sauve, 9/6/18)
I have been extremely pleased with the quality of Kathy's work! She is a talented photographer who is flexible and easy to work with. Both times she photographed my family, Kathy made sure to get every shot we hoped for and we couldn't have been happier with the results.  (Keena Herne, 8/29/18)

Such an enjoyable experience - and the most beautiful pictures! Will be booking again! (Shirley Wagner - 1/12/18)

I can not say enough about Kathy! She is amazing! We have had 3 photo shoots with her just this year and each time I am impressed! Her and her husband welcome us warmly into her home/studio. She has a very cute setup and is very talented! We had a cake smashing session today for our almost one year old. Kathy was very patient and took the time to get the perfect shots! I am very excited to see the end results! I would highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!!! (Cassie Dowdle - 12/29/17)

Kathleen was absolutely amazing with my little boy who doesn’t smile for the camera! She was a pleasure to work with and gets your photos back to you very quickly! I highly recommend her work! (Kelly Thayer - 1/16/18)

Kathleen was amazing!! We had a mini session and she was perfect for our family!! We run a very busy schedule so the mini was exactly what we needed and wanted!! We were early for our session and she took us right in and stuck to the time frame which was great for us!! She took lots of pictures and was very patient with our two children. We had photos back literally the next day and are very pleased with the quality and editing of our family portraits!!! We highly recommend her and will be having more photos done by her in the future!!! Thank you again!! (Lisa Warner - 12/10/17)




Kathy is absolutely wonderful! She is so kind and nurturing with children; my daughter took to her instantly and felt so comfortable with her in the studio. Kathy cares about her clients and you feel like a part of her family. I am incredibly happy with the photos that she took and look forward to her capturing more in the future!                                  (Alicia Love - 11/16/17)




Kathy does an amazing job! Highly recommend for anyone!! I am one happy customer and plan on using her for all our photography needs in the future!                                    (Cassie Dowdle - 11/8/17)  



Kathleen has done two photo shoots for me—one was a mommy and me shoot with my daughters that I actually won through a Facebook contest and the other with my extended family as an anniversary gift for my parents this summer. She did such a great job the first time around that there was no question I wanted her to do the shoot for my whole family. Kathleen was very flexible with times and locations and even scouted a few out that I suggested to get some extra ideas on a photo shoot location! We ended up at Madrid Park down by the water. It was a beautiful night, the weather cooperated perfectly and with 14 people in the shoot total (mostly kids from 7 months-11) Kathleen (with the help of her daughter) had so much patience to get through all the shots! Thanks for being funny and flexible! Thanks again!!  (Stacie Lee -  10/9/17)
