Press + Accolades



Kate did my maternity photos, and they came out amazing!!! She made our daughter who's not even 2 years old very comfortable, and she looks totally herself in all the images. Kate helped me feel very relaxed and beautiful, the session was very fun. I will treasure these photos!

Kat O

Working with Kate was easy, the pictures were so natural and we were looking at them in a few days. So many to choose from and once we ordered them, we received them in no time at all. The quality of the actual photographs is superb as well.

Elizabeth V

Kate is amazing!! We hired her for my daughters senior pictures and she exceeded our expectations! She is professional, kind, so easy to work with and her work is flawless! If she’s busy, we promise, she is worth the wait!!

My images are natural, crisp, vibrant, and they tell stories. I don’t pose my subjects heavily; I prefer to use prompts to get real emotions and reactions out of them, and those are the moments I click the shutter button. This works really well for people who tend to feel awkward in front of the camera, because it’s almost like I am not even there most of the time. They are just happy, feeling loved and included and surrounded by family and friends, and I’m there as a side note photographing all of these good vibes.

About Me

My lifelong passion for art, photography, and design developed into Polar Square Designs almost 20 years ago and I am positive that this is the best job ever.
