“I first went to Katie for a shoot when I was about 14 to start some modelling. When I first got there I was a little nervous, but Katie did such a great job of telling me what to expect, and given game pointers on what to do! She was so helpful! I stopped modelling for a bit because school got in the way, but when I started up again she was just as helpful as before! Doing the shoots with Katie gave me more opportunities such as, I have been in three or four magazine spreads with photos that she has taken for me. Her hair and make-up skills are impeccable! She always does it beautifully! She gave me loads of direction on things that I could do during my shoot, but also let me think of me own things and worked with them. I would recommend Katie to anybody! She is respectful, and really cares about her work, and clients! I would tell anybody that getting my photos done at Katiuska Idrovo Photography is one of or the best photo shoot experiences I have ever had!”
“My boyfriend booked me a boudoir photo shoot with Katie for my birthday. I was pretty nervous about the whole thing because my self-confidence isn’t especially high, but I had nothing to worry about. Katie put me at my ease right away with her warm and friendly demeanour. Prior to the photo shoot she did my hair and make-up (which looked amazing, by the way). We chatted the whole time and she really made me feel comfortable. During the shoot, I was pretty shy to begin with, but Katie was so patient with me. With her guidance and encouragement she drew me out of my shell, and it didn’t take long before I had forgotten my shyness and was having a fantastic time. I came away from the experience feeling more confident and beautiful than I had in a while. Before I had even selected which photos to order, I recommended Katie to several of my friends, and after receiving my pictures I would do so even more strongly! Katie really knows her work and is excellent at every aspect of it, from the pre-shoot prep to the photography to the digital enhancements. Not to mention that she is a lovely person to work with! I will definitely be going back for a second shoot sometime!”
“She came highly recommended and was a delight to work with. Very professional and knows her stuff. End results were phenomenal”
“As an up and coming plus size model, Katie was the first professional photographer to shoot me. Still not believing in myself and thinking that I did not have any potential, Katie guided me and I can honestly say, captured me in a different light that I have never seen. From hair and makeup, her guidance, her professionalism. Her passion in photography and love for her work exuding in your finished protect. I strongly recommend her! It’s almost a year that o mer Katie for the first time; she’s my go to person for my photography needs, professionally and personally. Thank you for all that you have done for me! And for the many women that have been referred to you!”
“I am a curvy model who has just started in the industry, shooting with Katiuska was such an amazing experience. It was my first boudoir shoot & I was nervous about it, she made me feel so comfortable & gave great direction! I was most impressed with the fact that she is a one woman show. She did hair, makeup & she shot all photos herself. She took the time to get to know me & it made the final edits absolutely amazing. To this date, the photos I shot with her have been my absolute favourite. There is no doubt that I will be shooting with her again! Thanks Katiuska!”
“Me and my little family just recently shot a cake smash and Maternity photo shoot with Katie. We are so pleased with the results. She brought my vision to life and exceeded my expectations. She made us feel so comfortable in our own skin and made us look 10 years younger with her finished product. We highly recommend her for all your photography needs. Two thumbs up. Xoxo”

“I’m Caterina Moda, a plus size model based in Toronto. I hired Katie because I saw her previous work with other models and I was immediately attracted to her work. During the shoot she was extremely sweet and comfortable to work with. Her hair and makeup skills were excellent! I love that she offers that as an extension of her photography. I was very pleased with the final product and I have received positive feedback from everyone that saw the photos. I would definitely recommend her to everyone!”
“I work in Sales & Marketing and I required a headshot for LinkedIn as well as for various uses within the company I work at. I’ve hired Katie twice in the last year and she has always delivered photos beyond my expectations. She has a great eye to help select the right wardrobe and does a beautiful job with makeup! Katie has a wonderful way of putting people at ease and encouraging movement and poses that are complimentary to you specifically. I’ve received countless compliments on the pictures she has taken. It is such a pleasure to know Katie – she is a true professional. I am looking forward to working with her next for our family photos!”
“I was so nervous about my session but Katie makes you feel comfortable. I was so insecure about everything and how the pictures would turn out, but thanks to Katie, I had NOTHING to worry about! I looked FANTASTIC! I couldn’t believe the lovely lady in the pictures was me!
The photo session itself was such a blast, the studio was incredible, the photos are breathtaking and Katie created an experience that made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. I am still in awe at how amazing she made me look and feel; the pictures turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined or hoped.
I just wanted to say, once again, thank you for such an amazing experience. I still can’t believe how unbelievable the photos turned out and how much fun my photography session was. Your made me feel beautiful, confident and capable of doing anything. I created a gift for my boyfriend that will most definitely put me in the running for “model of the year.” I am so anxious to see the look on my sweetheart face when I give him my photos where I look “smoking hot” as he said.
Anyways, thank you so much for such a fun and wonderful experience; I am looking forward to a next shoot in a few months….”
I work in a hospital, where I wear no makeup and unflattering scrubs daily. I got the idea to do a boudoir photo shoot as a gift for my boyfriend for our upcoming anniversary. After reviewing several different photographers I was drawn to Katie and the work she’s done. I really love how Katie strives to make all women of all shapes and sizes feel beautiful. I had never done any kind of photo shoot before and was definitely very nervous, but Katie made me feel so comfortable in a professional environment. Katie was such a joy to work with, and I will continue to recommend her to family, and friends! When I got my pictures I just about fell off of my chair. THEY WERE AMAZING!!”

“My name is Sarah, and I work in the legal field and model part time. This was my first ever boudoir photo shoot and I had a blast! Katie is super welcoming, friendly and I felt incredible comfortable with her the moment I met her. I love the photos and have received many compliments as well as bookings since sharing them. I loved working with Katie, from getting hair and makeup, being in front of the camera and discussing finishing touches. Katie is accommodating and is truly a master at her craft. I recommend Katie to anyone! Whether you want to wow your significant other with a boudoir shoot, update your portfolio with some new head shots or make memories – Katiuska Idrovo Photography is the way to go!”

“When I first met Katie I immediately felt her passion for her job. Katie made me feel instantly comfortable and took the time to get to know me which was quiet different from other photo shoots I have been on. With the different looks and locations I never felt so confident, amazing and beautiful like I did at this shoot. I would recommend Katie to anyone in the industry that wants to stand out from the crowd and be noticed. Katie is an amazing photographer that takes the time with you to make amazing photo’s.”
“Recently, my daughter Shannon, did her first photo shoot with Katie. The photo shoot provided us with both headshots and full body shots with different looks and locations. My daughter has had other photo shoots in the past but this one with Katie was different then the rest. Katie took the time to get to know my daughter when she was doing her hair and make-up. Katie’s gentle and kind demeanor made a big difference to my daughter because it made her feel comfortable and more relaxed by the time they started shooting the pictures. Every look was different but still age appropriate-demonstrating how multi-talented Katie is as a make-up artists, hair stylist and a photographer. The pictures in my opinion, turned out overwhelmingly BREATHTAKING! Once the pictures were completed my daughter instantly got more auditions, call backs and booked two music videos within a month of getting the head shots done.”

“I am a lady that has gone through a cancer journey and I am trying to get more or less or closer to what I was before. After working for many years in the Airline Industry and being a trade specialist in different foreign Trade Institutions & Trade Commissions within different countries, I feel as though I now have to do something different with myself and for myself. I have previously done some modeling work for the magazine “LIVES Affected by Cancer” while participating in the ‘Look Good Feel Better; program who help Women with Cancer. During my photo shoot with Katie, she made me feel very comfortable and most of all she had CHARISMA. I learned a few tips on make up, posture, fashion, and she was kind enough to answer any question I had in a proper manner. My photos turn out BEAUTIFUL and I have been receiving a few audition calls after my new headshots. Katie made me feel very relaxed, beautiful, I felt like a star and very secure of myself,
OBVIOUSLY I would recommend her! I have to say that it was one of the most beautiful experiences I had after my cancer treatments and surgeries. I would say my headshot is the best ever! After chemotherapy and radiation treatments my hair is not the same as before and the hairstyle Ms. Idrovo created made me felt as an entirely new person!”
“Entering the industry of looking good has never been easy. When I decided to take the first steps as a serious actor I was way out of my element. A kid from middle-of-nowhere Alberta heading to Toronto to meet casting directors from around the world was quite the scary undertaking. Luckily I found myself in good hands. Not only is Katie’s photography top-notch and professional in all aspects (just check it out yourself, the proof is in the pudding!) but Katie has been one of the best people to work with. Very nice with a great sense of humour she makes the environment perfect for relaxing and letting the subject focus on having their best shine through in the photography. No fake smiles or painful poses, she encourages you to be yourself and effectively be as close to in the room as possible when others view your images, she had me doing handstands for mine! Since working with Katie I’ve seen success from lead roles in local theatrical productions to working on “Hell on Wheels” and getting my first speaking roles in independent features! She also was key in getting me my agent and meeting so many people who were willing to consider me for roles after seeing my photos. I owe her so much thanks for helping me in the crucial area of support for an actor in getting my face out into the world. I’m glad for the times we spent both in the studio and having good conversations outside. Katie is so friendly and committed and I hope she can help many many others like myself see their true beauty come to life through the lens.”
“This was not my first time doing a photo shoot, but it was my first time doing a boudoir shoot with a female photographer which was great. I enjoyed working with a female because it made me feel comfortable and she was great at giving instructions. As a female she knows what looks good & what is flattering so it was awesome to work with her. The photos all turned out great and throughout the shoot she definitely made me feel comfortable and sexy! I am also currently in the process of creating a professional portfolio so I used the photos towards it and have received lots of positive feedback. I would 100% recommend Katie as a photographer in the future to any women who want great boudoir photos. She will make sure you feel comfortable and sexy and the photos will turn out great. If someone asked me about Katie’s photography company I would say that she is amazing to work with and will provide you with excellent service & photos. You will not be disappointed :)”
“This was my sixth (photo) shoot, but my first time shooting with Katie. Katie is wonderful to work with — she is positive, comedic and gives excellent directions for body and facial adjustments for photos. Katie gave me a lot of great advice about posing and the (entertainment) industry. My photos turned out beautiful! I’ve gotten two auditions since the photos were taken. The overall experience was very positive and upbeat. Any body wanting their photos taken would benefit from working with Katie.”
“Katie has done two photo shoots for my daughter, Olivia, in which she provided headshots and full body shots in a variety of poses and looks. Katie not only took the photos, but she also did all the different styles of make up and hair for the shoot. She was punctual, very professional and she put my daughter at ease during the shoot. Her directions were clear and very positive. Olivia has been called to many auditions and has booked a variety of roles as a result of the excellent quality of Katie’s work. I would recommend her without hesitation.” (Olivia has been cast in ‘The Next Step’ dance show which can be seen on the Family Channel)
“I am an Advertising Account Supervisor and this was my first time doing a boudoir photo shoot and I had a blast! Katie made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Having my makeup and hair done also made me feel so glamorous and sexy. Katie is so sweet and gives great direction! All of the feedback and direction was so positive and straightforward. I always felt comfortable and confident that the shots would come out great! During my shoot, I felt like a million bucks! I am in absolute love with my photos. I can’t wait for my husband to open his wedding gift and see them! Such a wonderful memory for down the road I hands down recommend Katie to anyone I know. That Katie has an incredible creative eye and provides stellar customer service and a quality product.”
“I currently am a part-time support worker, as well as a educational facilitator and this was my first time doing a boudoir shoot. I had a great, relaxed, and fun time. Katie was very easy going and flexible to work with, I felt comfortable at all times. She made the environment light with humour — even though I was nervous at first, I felt a burst of confidence during the shoot. I am pleased with the exposure and the detail in the images and I would definitely recommend Katie to anyone. If anyone is looking for brilliant resolution in images, lighting and a relaxed environment, she is the perfect photographer for the job!”
“My name is Ryan Pearson and I’m an Actor/Model. I recently did a photo shoot with Katie Idrovo for my acting portfolio/headshots. This was my second time doing a photo shoot with Katie — she was very helpful and made me feel very comfortable about being myself and being in front of the camera on both occasions. The new photos/headshots turned out great, and since the new photos I’ve been getting a lot more auditions and they have recently helped me land a Print Ad role. I would highly recommend Katie if you are looking into getting a professional photo shoot because she has the skills and the knowledge to make them look amazing for whatever your looking to get done.”
“My name is Jessica McCallum and I work in the Dental Industry as a Dental Assistant. This was my first boudoir photo shoot ever, and I LOVED it!!! Katie’s demeanor was absolutely on par! She not only made it so I was comfortable; she managed to make it a fun time for everyone involved. As fun and comfortable as this experience was, it was also very easy to be professional in Katie’s presence, as she herself is very professional and confident about what she does (and that’s a WONDERFUL feeling)! After an extraordinary experience, I received my photos only to find they were nothing short of AMAZING! How could they not be with such an outstanding and talented team! If anyone asked me about Katiuska Idrovo Photography, I would simply tell them to see for themselves! These pictures show you her talent and ability in this industry — as in most cases, a picture tells a thousand words. PHENOMENAL work Katie and team, I can’t wait to work with you in the near future!
Until then KEEP CALM & BOUDOIR ON!”
“Katie was a photographer at an HRPA event in May 2015. I am impressed with the professional headshot that Katie took of me at that event, and it is this photo that I am currently using on my LinkedIn profile. I recommend Katie’s work as a skilled photographer!”
Jamie Soo, Marberg Staffing
Katie was friendly and accommodating during my brief session with her. She took lots of shots and allowed me to control the session and choose my final poses. The results were great and I’ve had lots of positive comments on my new profile photo. I recommend Katie to anyone needing to update their professional headshots.”
