What my Clients say...

"She made me look good!"
 
                J.E., Oakville

"Like most older folks, I don't like having my picture taken as I always look better in my mind than in real life.  However, Catherine made me look good!  There is no pressure infront of her camera and the photos look natural.  She has an amazing eye that sees and corrects everything infront of her lens.  The attitude is fun and relaxed and you know you're in good hands."

"Catherine's photographs received rave
reviews from our Clients. "

"When we decided to make changes to the waiting room of our Veterinary Clinic, a Client suggested we add photos with the names of the staff.  We engaged Catherine who immediately suggested our pets should accompany us in the photos. The pictures were amazing and the connection with our pets obvious; turning our waiting room  into a warm and receptive environment. And the photos communicated that we too were pet owners and not just cold professionals. Catherine even mounted and arranged the photos.The comments from Clients were overwhelmingly awesome.  Diagnosis: spectacular!"

"Catherine took some wonderful photos of our dog Gracie, with my two daughters, in our backyard one Autumn day a few years ago.  She was referred to me for her photography skills but also her dog training abiliity.  She took the time to learn about my fearful dog and gain her trust before the photo session. As a result, Gracie was relaxed and playful and Catherine captured her image in an authentic and artistic way. The photos - a Christmas gift for my husband - are treasured by us all and receive compliments regularly revealing the dog we know and love."

"You captured moments our family

will treasure forever!"

H.R. Nova Scotia

Thank you for creating amazing photos of my daughter's recent wedding: before, during and after the ceremony.  You have captured moments that our family will treasure forever!  I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is a joy to work with."

"As a new puppy owner I wanted to remember the playful, mischievous personality of my new companion and Catherine captured just that. She took time to ask questions about what I wanted and was creative, patient and determined to get them. Catherine's extensive knowledge of dog training and dog behaviour was an added bonus. The photos she took were beautiful and surpassed my expectations.Catherine was very professional but fun and relaxed to work with. Communication was excellent and the end result (prints, calendars, cards) is something I will treasure. If you are looking for a pet photographer, Catherine Shand is the person you want!"
