Hello! I am Katherine Hoos.
My whole life I’ve been creative. As a child my mom recorded my answers to questions like “what subjects do you like in school?” “Who are your closest friends?” My answers to these questions changed year to year but one question I consistently answered the same. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Ever since kindergarten I’ve answered “An Artist”
When it came time to go to High School, I auditioned for and got into Canterbury High School in Ottawa. Canterbury is unique in the city because it focuses very strongly on the arts. I was a visual artist. We did rotations trying out various mediums. Photography quickly became my favorite. I would spend hours in the dark room developing from film.
Eventually I moved to digital photography. Learning to manipulate photos using Photoshop and Lightroom opened up a brand new world for me. I was able to create images that until then were trapped in my imagination.
Through my career I’ve focused on Portraiture. I love engaging with my clients to capture genuine expressions.
