  • The best way to describe Katie, her work ethic, and her professionalism is fabulous! We can't figure our how she did it but Katie was able to take every picture instantly at the right time to capture the most precious and exciting moments of the photo shoot.

  • She is incredibly professional, prompt and creative. We were lucky to have her on campus to share her talent with our dance company. Photographing dance is not an easy task, but each time Katie has done a wonderful job!

  • When I was ready to start my new business and needed a logo designed, I was looking for something different, inspired as well as original. I needed a design that was going to stand out and grab attention right away. I called Katie at keatoncreative and after I explained what it was that I was looking for, she designed two powerful logos for my new business that have excellent detail and color and genuine just like I was looking for.

    Having a choice with two logos was a plus. Both of them have worked well with all of my marketing pieces and have grabbed attention. I would highly recommend keatoncreative for a company’s logo design and am looking forward to having Katie do more design work for me in the future.

  • The best way to describe Katie, her work ethic, and her professionalism is fabulous!

    Prior to working with Katie we had been to numerous photographers that labeled themselves as professional for which we concluded were not. Per neighborly discussions with Katie, we were informed that she was a photographer and we quickly decided that we would like to hire her to take pictures of our daughter. Instantly our daughter and Katie hit it off. This was due to Katie's ability to make our daughter feel very comfortable and her ability to get her to laugh so we could capture her amazing smile and personality. The experience did not feel like a formal photo shoot as it was very relaxed thus allowing our daughter to act like the crazy and exciting kid she is.

    We can't figure our how she did it but Katie was able to take every picture instantly at the right time to capture the most precious and exciting moments of the photo shoot. We have subsequently had Katie take pictures of our newborn son and as you may suspect they also came out fabulous. The only difficult thing about working with Katie is trying to decide which photos to hang up in the house; this is very difficult as they are all fabulous in there own way! Again, Katie's work ethic, professionalism, and ability to capture the right moments can be described in one word; fabulous!

  • I have had the great pleasure of working with Katie for the past year. The project is my website for my profession. I plan on living out of the country for half of the year starting this November. I tell you this, to point out the difficulty in the fact Katie and I were in uncharted territory. I know of no one who has done what I want to do, in the way I want to do it.

    Katie has been amazing with her people skills and computer knowledge always positive and solution oriented. There were many revisions and total restarts in areas of the website, yet Katie was always ready and shared the passion of not settling for less than the best. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

  • Katie worked with our dance company at Alma College to help us create calendars, and update our students head shots. Katie is incredibly easy to work with, and has an eye for performers. Our calendars are wonderful, and it's a joy to see what new ideas she has each year. She is incredibly professional, prompt and creative. We were lucky to have her on campus to share her talent with our dance company. Photographing dance is not an easy task, but each time Katie has done a wonderful job!

  • On August 3, 2013 Katie Keaton was our photographer for our wedding. Katie did a wonderful job. We had her take photos inside at the church as well as outside for photos after. She was very creative and always maintained professionalism. She did everything we asked and more. Would definitely work with her again.
