Let me start by saying that, after seeing photos she had done for friends of mine, I loved the style and talent of Katie's photography so much that I extended a trip to California (from New York!) just to have her photograph my daughter. It was absolutely a worthwhile choice! Katie's way with children - and really, with all people - is so warm and loving and personable that she is somehow able to draw out and capture emotion in her photographs. In a field often saturated with people who can simply take a good shot and edit it well (which she can also do!), Katie is the rare mix of talent, skill, and a true artistic eye. She captures more than just a moment of time at the right angle; Katie is actually able to photograph love. The session we had with my daughter was phenomenally warm yet professional, and the photos Katie delivered exceeded my expectations. I can not recommend Katie of Claire Alyse Photography strongly enough. - Lisa

A lot of planning goes into these family photo shots. Nap schedules, snack timing- not to mention the location, styling of clothes and possible props. But on the day of Katie has an astonishing way of erasing all the angst and making it fun and easy. Twice now Katie has photographed my family and totally blown me away with gorgeous and stylish photos. She has a special way of capturing 'OUR' moment- and every mother knows how precious those are. - Kathi

I have worked with Katie and Claire Alyse Photography for 4 years now. She does all the candid photography for my clothing line Beane and Company. Katie is absolutely amazing!. She has such a natural ability to capture the kids at their best. Which is not always easy. We usually have 4 or more kids involved in a shoot, and it always feels like such chaos to me...but with all the chaos she manages to capture the precious moments that none of the rest of us see! I never worry about whether the pictures are going to be good...they are always exactly what I wanted and more! Katie and Claire Alyse Photography is highly recommended. - Jenna

I honestly can't say enough positive things about Katie and Claire Alyse Photography. She's photographed my daughter twice now, and I'm still in awe over the pictures. Her style & vision are so beyond beautiful, and she just has a natural way of making you feel at ease and getting my daughter to actually cooperate & have fun!! She made the session so fun, my daughter didn't want her to stop. Katie's a beautiful person inside & out and it's clearly reflected through her work. - Jen

The first time we watched our slideshow, we cried... They say pictures speak a thousand words, and your photographs definitely resonate with that saying. Words cannot even begin to express how grateful we are for you, your time, and your amazing talent in capturing our little Eva's "birth story" on Thanksgiving Day!! Your documentation of our little miracle is something that we'll treasure forever. thank you... so much... xoxo - Kristine

The only thing better than Katie herself, is her photography. I had 3 extremely uncooperative children and you would never know from the photos. She has an eye for lighting, an ease about her that makes you smile that real smile and she's fantastic with kids. I highly recommend Katie and will be using Claire Alyse Photography to update my family photos every year. - Amy

Katie, working with you was a wonderful experience for our family of four.  Our 1 year old daughter was a bit cranky on our beach outing but you still managed to have patience with us.  I love the shots you took of our 10 year old son.  We've received so many compliments on the photo we have of the kids holding hands.  Thank you so much for these memories you gave us, we will cherish them always. - Veronica

After 4 years of "studio" pictures of my daughter I was really looking for something different. I wanted pictures that would capture my daughter the way she is at home spunky and full of life. Not posed with props in front of a curtain. Little did I know that when I had Katie photograph my daughter I was going to get so much in return. She really captured her personality. I watched in awe as my daughter blossomed in front of the camera. She had so much fun and Katie was a true professional. Her photos brought tears to my eyes and I will cherish them forever. - Stephany

It was such a pleasure to meet Katie and have her photograph our new daughter, Dylan Noelle.  As brand new parents, Katie made it SO EASY for us, coming to our house when Dylan was just one week old. Katie was so incredibly patient, letting baby Dylan go about her morning as she needed to, all while capturing the most beautiful photos.  It was a wonderful experience, and we LOVED receiving the printed photos.  Getting that package in the mail was probably the best part - everything was exquisitely wrapped up like a gift!  Thanks so much again, these photos are truly a gift to cherish for a lifetime!  - Jack & Suzy

Katie has the unique gift of capturing a child's joy, curiosity and exuberance in a photograph.  Her playful and patient interactions with our son during our shoot can only come from a genuine love for what she does.  Katie was a delight to work with... and I think it's apparent that her artistic talent speaks for itself.  -Meegan

We used Katie from Claire Alyse Photography for our engagement photos.  My husband and I didn't want to be too 'posed' for the photos and Katie did a great job making the pictures seem very natural.  She did such a fabulous job.  She is also super nice and really easy to work with! - Margaret

As a family with a toddler, preschooler, two teenagers, and a dog, getting an amazing group photo is a challenge. Katie exceeded our expectations, providing us with a lovely collection of photographs that really capture our family's ebullience. She was professional, talented, and a lot of fun! Our four-year old keeps asking, "When can we go take pictures with Katie again?" Thanks Katie! - Lisa and Asher
