"I wish I could give Kate Moore Photographics more than 5 stars. She took my daughter's senior pictures, and they were gorgeous. I did my homework, and Kate was more reasonable than every other high quality photographer in KC. She's easy to work with, and we were beyond thrilled with the pictures. Kate Moore Photographics gets my enthusiastic endorsement!" -Sammye

"Kate is a fun and professional photographer - she allows everyone to at ease when working with her. I think that her style and personality brings out the best out of everyone, and it really shows in her photos. I give Kate 5 blue stars and extra twinkle." -Binh
"I loved working with Kate for our family portraits outdoors. We had issues due to the weather and had to reschedule quite a few times, but she worked with my schedule. She was very professional and worked great with my children. I highly recommend Kate!" -Kendra
Nowadays, photographers charge you a fee for your portrait session that seems cheap, say $100, but then in order to get digital files or prints of your photos, you have at least a $500+ minimum order requirement. A lot of photographers call this additional pricing "a la carte," meaning you don't actually get your photos after paying the sitting fee. This confusing pricing can take advantage of clients, and frankly, doesn't seem fair. If you pay for a session, you should get what you paid for: beautiful photographs! Here, you pay one flat rate for everything: your session, your editing and all digital files. My goal is to make your session transparent and easy so we can get to the fun part - authentically capturing you at your best with absolutely no need for filters.
In the era of Instagram and smartphones, photography is now in the hands of everyone, which is amazing. The technology, craft, and editing process of digital photography continues to go beyond what we thought was possible the year before. However, filters are a very trendy thing, just like your aunt Linda's 80's wedding dress with all of the puffy sleeves. If you check out your favorite blogger, you might find that they edit out most of the color from their photos and increase the orange and yellow saturation to give a rustic, Instagram-filter-y feel. It can look really warm, clean and trendy in that square Instagram crop. I believe there is a time and place for these kind of filters, and that's on your phone, not your professional photographs. Filters shouldn't be a part of an investment you make to remember your family for decades to come. I've got a hunch that we will look back at these filtered photos in twenty years and wish we had a version that wasn't so heavily edited. My goal is to always use natural lighting to show you and your loved ones at their best and capture their personality just as they are today.
PHOTOS TO CHERISH & AN EXPERIENCE TO REMEMBER
The best part of taking photos with me? You just have to show up, and I do the rest! We will get to know each other, probably make some bathroom jokes to get those genuine, non-forced smiles and candid giggles, and have a blast doing it. Sometimes, the best photos from a session are the ones that show the real deal: your silly, amazing, sassy, candid, and unpredictable family! I always make sure we take time to prioritize those amazing shots that aren't so posed, but are of you... just being you.
