Black Locust | Testimonials



just wanted to thank you again for creating such lovely photos of me....It actually made me look at myself differently and has given me more confidence and motivation than I have had in years. Thanks for helping me see the beauty that I have in me still....I like to joke and say "See what great lighting and makeup can do for me?" And my good friend said "NO! THAT IS YOU! They just did a wonderful job of capturing your image." - Michelle 


I knew from the beginning that it would be a challenge to feel comfortable in front of the camera. But Black Locust showed me that I am beautiful and that my photos would reflect that beauty.  It was a life changing experience. You will be so happy with the way you feel, the way you look, the photos and the products. You'll have amazing photos to give your loved ones but more importantly, you'll have photos for yourself. I look at my photos everyday and they remind me that I am that woman in the photos. - Emily
LeaLea I will never forget my experience with Catherine, her assistants and the entire session that left me incredibly happy and feeling loved. I felt so comfortable in my skin, so beautiful with who I truly am and my worthiness as a person. It's more than a photo session, it's an opening of doors that have stayed closed for too long. Thank you Catherine for the magical-self-love-and-awareness-photo-session that I will always hold close to my heart-and thank you for all the empowerment and work you do for others out there waiting for a way to open up. - Lea
This experience allowed me to see myself in a different light…figuratively and literally. The women at Black Locust are incredibly skilled and creative. I believe every woman owes themselves the experience of feeling beautiful. - Brooke 
Black Locust was WONDERFUL! I had such a wonderful time with the photo shoot. Everyone was extremely professional and strived to make me feel comfortable. Highly recommended team and I look forward to utilizing them in the future. - Heather 
My photos are incredible. They're simple, timeless, and elegant, exactly what I wanted. Every girl is beautiful in their own unique way, and I feel like you captured what makes me unique. This is my favorite photo. When I saw it, I saw my mother (and for those that know my mom, she is an Audrey Hepburn kind of beauty), and that nearly made me cry. Every girl should have a photo they love and are proud of. - Ashley 


Catherine's work never ceases to amaze me. She is absolutely the best photographer I've ever worked with. Black Locust was even more than I could've asked for. Catherine exceeded all expectations, everything from start to finish was extremely professional, yet warm, inviting and comfortable. Exquisite, sophisticated, beautiful, she captured the essence of what I was wanting. - Natalie
