Katie is fantastic! Her photos are beautiful and they captured the day better than I could have hoped. Our guests even commented on how much they enjoyed her. To have a photographer who adds humor and joy to the celebration was a unique gift.

We've had several different opportunities to use Lampshade studio, from sports team pictures to dance shots to business shots for our organization's board of directors. They have ALL been exceptional, professional quality - and to top it off, Katie's personality makes the whole thing a lot of fun!

Ms. Roberts is an outstanding photographer to work for. The sitting is always fun and she can make anyone smile.

If there is one thing I am don't like, it's getting my picture taken. It is one of the most uncomfortable things there is. However at Lampshade studio, Katie helps you feel comfortable, and she turns getting your picture taken into a fun time. She also makes the best Senior/Wedding announcements! Getting your picture taken at lampshade is always a great experience and they always get the shot you are looking for!

We take our annual children's pictures with Katie. She is talented at setting a scene they will be comfortable being themselves in, and usles her fun personality to get their true expressions captured on film.
