Hello! My name is Kate Kirkby and I live in Pill, just outside Bristol, UK with my husband and our two sons. Photography has always been a passion of mine and I feel extremely lucky to have a job that I truly love and I believe that this shows in my work.
I want you to love your family portraits as much as I love creating them. It is not just about the final images -care and attention is taken at every stage. From our first interaction through to delivery of your final products, I will ensure that the whole experience is relaxed and enjoyable one for everyone involved.
I was given my first camera at the age of seven and one of my earliest memories is looking at my Grandad’s camera collection and being fascinated by all the twiddly little knobs and buttons.
I also followed in my Grandad’s footsteps by studying engineering at university but after having my first son the thought of going back to an office job did not appeal, and photography beckoned.
I have now been working as a professional photographer for over 10 years and I’ve never looked back. I am continually developing my skill through workshops and training courses.
I feel eternally grateful that I have a job that I love and I hope that this shows in the images that I create for my clients.
I can’t wait to meet you!
