Working with Kathy is such a joy. Her laidback way of interacting put my kids at ease, allowing her to get some beautiful images. She has a fantastic eye and is skilled with working behind her camera as well as working with the humans in front of it!

Mrs. Azar takes the best action shots! She always knows exactly when to click that button to capture the moment perfectly.

If you want a photographer to capture not only the beauty of the subject but their love and soul, Kathy is your girl. She goes out of her way to make everyone comfortable and relaxed even if the subject isn’t a picture taking fan. My youngest daughter’s senior photos were breathtaking and showed all sides of her personality. Kathy’s artistic eye is one of the best.
Kathy is a joy! With her upbeat personality and spontaneity, she is able to capture the perfect photos!

Kathy Azar has been creating memories for my family for almost a decade. Initially she worked with my two children (9th grade daughter & 4th grade son) on individual and group portraits. They are still some of my favorite pictures of my children to this day because Kathy captured expressions that epitomized who my kids were at that time. She put them both at ease while being very professional in her camera work and setting selections. Our session was held on Kathy’s property in fall.
When it came time for my daughter’s senior portraits we both wanted to work with Kathy. She listened to my daughter and made suggestions for location, hair, wardrobe and accessories that turned out beyond my and my daughter’s greatest expectations. This session was held at Willowbrook Farm in Malvern in fall.
Finally, we have worked most recently on individual and family portraits with Kathy at The Foundry in Phoenixville in summer. I was so happy with them they both hang in my home and were distributed in Christmas cards that year.
We will be booking again for my son’s senior portrait in the future!
Kathy Azar is an incredibly talented photographer. She has shot sports photos for my sons for the past 3 years.
Kathy has an uncanny knack for knowing exactly where to aim her camera during any sport she is shooting. She has captured moments for our family that we will be able to cherish for the rest of our lives.
Kathy is professional, creative, super easy to work with, and extremely detail oriented!
Her image quality is excellent – any products I have ever gotten from her (portraits, blankets, posters, etc.) have all been amazing!
Kathy knows her craft extraordinarily well and it shows in all of her work. Aside from having the “eye” she is outstanding to work with and is just plain awesome at both working with anyone as well as getting the right shots. Wouldn’t think of using anyone else!!

“Wow! Kathy knows her stuff, and she knows it well! She has taken the best pictures of me that I have ever seen! She made me feel comfortable and got me to laugh, getting the best smile out of me possible.”
- Michael Pellock
We've had Kathy take our family photos several times now. She is so much fun and so easy to work with! She is amazingly patient with adults, children, and pets alike! We didn't make it easy by bringing along our two rambunctious dogs, but Kathy was amazing. She captured so many wonderful memories for us. You will not regret asking Kathy to capture your memories!
- Kristi Hall
“We first crossed paths with Kathy when our sons were lucky enough to be on the same baseball team in elementary school. It did not take long for us to realize we had a talented photographer in our midst. It’s been almost a decade now and Kathy has been taking our family photos ever since! We feel so blessed to have met such a gifted and passionate photographer like Kathy. Not only does she capture people at their best, but she has a knack for making both you and your entire family feel at ease. Her passion, friendliness, creativity and flexibility create such a relaxed environment that you might even forget you were being photographed! She works tirelessly to create meaningful moments and portraits and her work has always brought us great joy. We treasure all the family portraits Kathy has created for us over the years and our kids have especially loved the sports action photos and unique mementos that grace their walls and make us all smile. Now that our son is (gulp) a high school senior, we wouldn’t think of having anyone else take his senior portrait. We highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking for portraits that families will treasure for life!”
Kathy was great to work with for our family photos! I was impressed with her from start to finish- she was professional yet personable and completely flexible. I highly recommend her!!

It is a wonderful experience working with Katherine Azar Photography for our high school football team. From our extensive preseason planning, to the very creative player portrait session, & expert game day shooting, Katherine is a true professional. We received hundreds of high quality action shots from each game, capturing all aspects. With a quick turn around, the boys & coaches are pumped to view game photos. It's truly an experience that all parents truly appreciate.

We’ve been lucky enough to have Kathy Azar capture some pretty special moments for our kids. From Prom, Sports, and Senior Friend shots Kathy was there with a smile on her face and energy that is second to none! Kathy’s sports pictures are amazing! She gets much more than just the picture! She captures the emotion and intensity of the moment. I had two daughters playing in the same game and I mentioned to Kathy to try and get a pic of them together. She got a great action shot of them both going for the ball and it turned out incredible. I am so grateful to have pictures of my kids that will always bring back such great memories. The Senior Friend photo shoot was so fun for our girls and their group of friends, they still talk about the shoot like it was a party! She was able to handle different personalities and styles seamlessly. Kathy is patient, talented and creative!

“Having my senior photos done by Ms. Kathy Azar was a great experience! She was extremely fun and capable of capturing authentic moments, putting me at ease in front of the camera. Her creativity and positive energy helped produce some of the best pictures I’ve ever had!”
Kathy is an incredible photographer. She has photographed both of my kids at West Chester East HS for their sports teams. Her work is exceptional. But, more importantly, she is a great person. You can see her passion every Friday night under the lights of a football game capturing the perfect catch, throw or tackle. Whether it’s 90°, raining or freezing cold, she’s there because she “loves these kids”.
- Ryan Griffin
We discovered Kathrine Azar Photography through our son's football team....she took some amazing team photos. With two of our kids now in college, and our time together more and more limited, it was so important for us to capture family moments. So, when we were considering a professional photographer, I immediately thought of Kathy. Kathy is simply incredible to work with - from the initial outreach, to coordinating the shoot location, to selecting our final images, Kathy makes the entire process easy and enjoyable. We simply could not have had a better experience, and I couldn't offer a stronger recommendation. Our family photo shoot has now become an annual holiday event, and Kathy's creativity, vision, and pure talent has delivered some outstanding images which we will treasure forever!

Being an makeup artist in the tv industry, I have worked with many photographers. Moving upstairs from her studio, I have gotten to work with Kathy on many photo shoots. What makes her different and stand out is that she has a way of making it personal and a fun experience! You want the photographer to capture your spirit in order to “get that shot!”
She is not only professional but a true artist. Trust me when I say that. I am artist with color and faces - she puts the magic on the screen. Like I said, I have worked worldwide with many photographers and she by far supersedes my expectations every time.
- Voula Sioutis
There are no words to describe Kathy's work! She absolutely captured every aspect of our daughter! She made a genuine effort to get to know our daughter and to capture her at her best. Her work is stunning and absolutely, beyond a doubt totally worth the wait! Schedule early my friends!!! I am so glad I have one more child who will graduate and get to experience Kathy's skill and expertise!

West Chester East Football Media/Photography Coordinator
Kathy has been taking sports photographs of our football games and players for the past 5 years. She has evolved into our primary photographer for the team and now does all our action and portrait photography! I have had the pleasure of working with her as the Media/Photography Coordinator on the Booster Board for the West Chester East High School Football team. She has provided us with amazing action shots, banners for our seniors, senior cutouts, large composites of the team as well as the senior class, in addition to individual pictures of players and formal team shots. She dedicates a tremendous amount of time to the players and is able to capture the personality of the boys on the field. She is very easy to work with, has wonderful ideas and endless energy!

When Kayelee's Senior year was quickly approaching I knew that she would be as thrilled as I was to find someone to take her Senior portraits for us. I also knew that whomever we found would need to be as inspired and talented as Kayelee herself and would need to be willing to do what Kayelee had envisioned. Kayelee knew exactly what she wanted and what type of background she wanted. When we spoke with Katherine Azar for the first time we immediately knew she would be the photographer to get the job done. Katherine spoke with Kayelee and it was as if she already knew what Kayelee was thinking. When we walked out of her studio Katherine had not only already found the perfect location to shoot but had immediately gone over ideas of what types of pictures they could do in that location. Her ability to communicate with Kayelee and make Kayelee's vision come true was spot on. The day we had the portraits done was for me a bittersweet moment and Katherine made each minute special. She was very accommodating and patient from beginning to end. She listened to every idea Kayelee had and incorporated her own ideas to come up with a beautiful portrayal of Kayelee's personality. The entire photo session was a breeze and she made it so fun and relaxing. The location Katherine chose was just beautiful. Everything Kayelee was hoping to have from the stone house, open fields and covered bridge were all a part of her session. The ideas she prepared for Kayelee made this the best photo session we have ever had. I was amazed by the amount of photos we had to choose from in the end. She definitely made it hard to narrow down our favorites. I am forever grateful to Katherine for making Kayelee's senior portraits so naturally beautiful and truly special for her. We love so many of them and would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
Kathy Azar is an amazing photographer. We have used her for both our son's senior photos and for school sporting events. She was organized, timely, energetic, open to our ideas but also had many ideas of her own. The images turned out clear and vibrant. We look forward to scheduling a senior session with out next son. We highly recommend Kathy for any of your photography needs.
Kathy Azar's sports photography is the best! In the Spring at the East High School Girls' Lacrosse Senior Night, my daughter and I were in awe of the banners Kathy created to honor the seniors. When it came time for Volleyball's Senior Night this fall, we contacted Kathy to see what magic she could work for us. We were blown away by the results! Working with Kathy was wonderful. She is highly responsive to inquiries and made herself available as we needed her (on short notice I might add). The shots she took of the team in action were amazing. And the end result of the gorgeous (both in content and in quality)senior banners she delivered to us created memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Kathy!! Can't wait to work with you again (Basketball and Softball are on the horizon!!)
Kathy’s ability to capture athletes doing what they love is unparalleled. She can capture stills, action shots, any lighting, any angle. She knows exactly where to be to get that perfect shot and then creates a keepsake with that photo to be cherished forever. No one is better at this craft.
Katherine Azar is my absolute favorite photographer. She has photographed my children many times over the years for both yearly portraits as well as active sporting shoots. In every case, she brought a warm enthusiasm which both amused and relaxed my children and thereby enabled her to capture their true essence! Her pictures are works of art and have become the only gift the grandparents ask for for Christmas. I highly recommended Katherine Azar for any of your photography needs!
Our yearly family portrait session with Kathy Azar is one of our favorite holiday traditions. Each location she chooses tops the location from the year before, and the portraits make for incredible Christmas cards. Her direction makes posing for typically uncooperative teenagers and puppies easy. Her warm personality also creates a comfortable environment that yields beautiful candids. She is patient and always makes sure we are satisfied with the portraits before the session concludes. We couldn’t be happier with Kathy and highly recommend her photography services!
Kathy has a special knack for capturing not only exciting sports photos, but she manages to capture the emotions of the moment as well. She is incredibly dedicated and genuinely enthusiastic about her work. The book I purchased of my son’s high school football years is absolutely incredible. Kathy took the time to group photos in a meaningful way and captured the raw emotions of each moment. He has these memories in print now and will cherish them for a lifetime. Thanks for being awesome, Kathy!!
