Experience is Everything

Experience is everything.  The neat thing about delivering a remarkable client experience is that it can be the foundation of a strong brand.  Making personal contact and going the extra mile is something that makes a difference in the client experience.  We are in an age where people have a lot of choice on where they shop and spend their money.  If you provide a great client experience, it keeps the client happy and he/she will come back and refer you to others.  It really is an interconnected process.  Without the client, what do we have?

I really enjoy paper cards and design.  I always look forward to making our holiday cards and I really enjoyed creating our wedding invitations.  I recently created thank you cards for my clients.  I created return address labels, seals, and custom stamps so that everything coordinates highlighting my brand, shown below.

I believe the client experience should be seamless for the client.  After all, like myself, the ideal client, wants to make sure that they are working with someone whom he/she trusts and has confidence in.  I know when I am hiring and working with someone, it is extremely  important that I feel that I can build a rapport and working relationship with the person I am going to hire, which is just as important, if not more important, than the services rendered.  Thus, my goal for each client is to create and implement a personalized, fun, and seamless experience that exceeds the client’s expectations and makes each and every client feel like royalty.

Baltimore County Photography Commission: Jax

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing Jax, a rescue pit bull, who is approximately four-years-old!  It is interesting how I met Jax’s mom, Jen.  Jen is a big proponent of dog rescue and dog fostering, and she found one of my images on Pintrest, and contacted me via e-mail to book a commission.  The image Jen found happened to be of a photograph I had taken last year of “Lady” who was living at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS).  Lady who was later renamed “Josie” was sent to the Jasmine’s House, Inc., a pit bull rescue organization, for placement in foster care.  Jen and her husband fostered Josie who was recently adopted and placed in a furever home!

Even more interesting and coincidental, Jen and her husband are fostering “Princess Tulip” currently known as “Amelia” who I photographed a few weeks ago at (BARCS) for my long term dog project with BARCS.  I was able to say “hello” to Amelia during our photo shoot.

Jen and her husband rescued and adopted Jax when he was approximately two-years-old from the Baltimore County Animal Control (BCAC) in August of 2011.  They happened to go to BCAC on a day where Jax was available for adoption at the BCAC .  After meeting Jax, they decided on the spot to adopt him and Jax has been a part of the family ever since!

Jen, a woman after my own heart, writes a blog about her adventures in dog fostering, which is narrated by Jax!  You can follow Jen’s blog here!  Additionally, here is a blog post about Jax’s one-year anniversary with his furever family!

Jax met me at the front door quite excited for his photo shoot!  We had gorgeous weather this past weekend, and Jax was a pleasure to photograph.  Jax is full of energy, but he was willing to sit still for some treats!  By the time I left, Jax was giving me tons of kisses — a very lovable pup!

Thank you for inviting me to photograph and document your precious, beloved, and handsome Mr. Jax!

Some highlights from our photography session are shown below.  If you are interested in commissions, please find further information here!

Happy Friday!

I am a freelance fine art photographer based in the Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C. area. I grew up in the Midwest and I was first introduced to photography in high school, and I completed several photography courses during college. Law school brought me to the East Coast, where I met my wonderful husband, Doug. Together, we adopted our beloved Biscuit, a rescue Shetland Sheepdog, shown above and throughout this blog.

Biscuit was the inspiration for establishing Katherine Carver Photography. Biscuit awakened a desire to carry my camera everywhere – creating images that preserve fleeting moments that chronicle Biscuit’s story forever.

I am the happiest behind my camera creating photographs of animals that reveal their individual spirits; recording another realm that would otherwise remain unseen.

My goal is to record the unique personalities and signature physical attributes of the animals that I photograph. I believe those who hire me are actively searching for an alternative fine art documentary approach to capture the heart and soul of their cherished furry family member(s).

I am an ardent advocate of animal rescue and adoption, and I donate my photography services to my local animal shelter.
