My daughter and I recently did a photo shoot with Panos. We highly recommend her. Faye and I were super comfortable and enjoyed our time with Katie. I love the photos that came out of the process and my mother was brought to tears when she saw them. More...

Katie was simply awesome! She insisted on a Skype call to get to know us and discuss her process, gave us tips ahead of time for our baby. During the shoot she was super professional and just great with our 2 week old daughter. She really did a great job working with us ( new parents) our daughter and all the while focusing on getting great pictures.She got some great pictures that we will treasure forever. More...

Nicest photographer you will ever meet. Had new born photos taken and I was amazed at how patient she was and what she was able to accomplish with such a fussy baby. Photos came out looking fab and couldn’t be happier to have these photos to cherish forever. If you want a professional photographer with the sweetest personality for your littles ones...she is it!

We came across Panos through a Groupon and thought we'd give it a try as newborns are only new for so long. I was a little hesitant as I wasn't completely convinced that the photos would be worth the money. I was definitely wrong on that front. Katie was incredibly professional as our daughter was super fussy on the first day. We were there for about 4 hours with a baby that refused to cooperate and Katie was nothing but calm and collected. She was only able to take a couple of photos because the baby refused to cooperate but Katie pulled out a bunch of tricks that she knew to try to calm her down. She worked pretty tirelessly to get the photos that day. Even so, the kid only allowed us to take about two or three poses. Katie worked with us to find another day that we could come back and finish the shoot. She definitely didn't have to accommodate us as she had taken enough pictures for the groupon. The second shoot went much better and she was able to take wonderful photos of our baby. She worked though a massive blowout and was incredibly professional throughout the entire shoot. Our photos look amazing and we ended up getting a lot more than we anticipated because they all look so good! If you're looking for newborn photos, you should absolutely go with Panos. More...

My 12 year old son recently sat for a session with Katie and I was so very pleased with the results! I had been following her social media for awhile because I was considering her for my daughter’s baby pictures so I was familiar with her work. All of the planning from beginning to end was personable and professional. She and her staff were really accommodating to his personality and stayed in excellent communication with me about what to expect before, during and prior to the shoot. She never made him do any poses he was not contactable with which made for a wide array of proofs to choose from. I recommend her without reservation. More...

We had won a child couture portrait giveaway via Instagram. Prior to the photo session, we had an over the phone consultation with Katie as she asked to learn more about my daughter and her personality and  went over wardrobe ideas. Meeting Katie in person was so pleasant. She was very sweet and patient with explaining the whole photo session process and showing my daughter how she can pose to achieve great photos. I Love how Katie was so attentive and and never made us feel rushed. My daughter had a great experience. More...

I came across Panos Productions Photography while I was searching the web for a photographer for a newborn photography session the week of my expected delivery date. I had not considered getting my newborn photographed until the very end of my 3rd trimester and I knew it was pretty late to start the search for a photographer. I started noticing that most photographers were asking expecting moms to schedule in the 2nd trimester just to be safe.  Fortunately, as I searched online for some local photographers, I came across Panos Photography and a link to their website. I loved all the pictures on their portfolio and liked even more that there was a lot of information about Katie (the photographer), as well as information about her credentials, policies and frequently asked questions. It was especially nice to see that Katie has experience working with children and takes working with newborns very seriously. She has newborn photography safety training and has the recommended vaccinations to work with newborns. Being a first-time parent, I think this is something that is definitely important, especially since the photographer will be handling your baby within the first few days since birth. Sooo...being that I liked everything that I saw online, I decided to contact Panos Productions Photography. I called and left a voicemail with my information and let them know that my actual due date was right around the corner (less than a week away). I wasn't sure if they would be able to accommodate me but it was definitely something I wanted to mention. I promptly received a text response from Katie acknowledging that she received my message and would be returning my call later in the day. When she called back she did let me know that they would definitely be able to work with me. She advised me that her studio manager, Simone, would be sending me additional information about their newborn studio session and once I signed an agreement, they would wait for me to notify them via email or text of my baby's birth in order to schedule the session.  Simone took care of sending all the info about studio policies, agreement and invoice. The whole process was extremely easy. Simone was prompt in responding whenever I sent anything via email, which I definitely appreciated.It turned out my baby was born over a week after my actual due date. I was able to notify Simone via email of my baby's arrival and she was able to schedule me for a photography session when my baby was nine days old. The morning of the session we drove to Katie's home studio. She was very pleasant and greeted us in her driveway. The studio setup was great and she had several props and wraps ready to go. She was able to soothe, wrap and put our baby back to sleep within a couple minutes of our arrival and was ready to begin photographing. She was able to create several cute shots of him. It was great watching her set up the shots and pose our baby. My husband and I could not stop smiling the whole time we were there. Since we only booked a newborn mini session, we were only there for a little over an hour. Overall, I am very pleased with the images we received of our baby boy. I would definitely recommend Panos Productions Photography to anyone looking for a newborn photographer. Both Katie and Simone are extremely professional and were a pleasure to work with. I definitely look forward to bringing our son back for another session in the future. Thank you, Katie and Simone!-Susana G. (and baby Julian) More...

We are so pleased to have found Katie! We called and few places for a newborn photoshoot and Katie was the first person to reach out right away! Within a day we had our consultation over the phone and had our session booked. Her studio has every setup imaginable, not to mention the cutest hair accessories for baby girls! Katie was wonderful and so patient with our little one. She paid attention to every detail and the pictures turned out amazing! She was great at guiding us on how to pose for our family photos- making us feel very comfortable. Super responsive to our texts/emails and quick turn around time with pictures. We will be recommending to all our friends and family. More...

Everything is done with a lot of care, from handling our newborn, to creating the perfect shot, and to communicating exactly what we could expect. Highly recommended. More...

So happy we found Katie! My husband and I were so impressed by her. Newborn photography is not easy and she went above and beyond to try and get the best photos of our baby. She used to be a special ed teacher and you can tell because she has never ending well of patience! She took her time to calm and swaddle our baby for each outfit change/pose. She used a lot of soothing techniques that my husband and I started using ourselves! She is a true baby whisperer! That combined with her expertise in knowing what poses look good gave us some really incredible and adorable photos. My husband and I are super happy with how they turned out and we will cherish them forever. If you’re still trying to decide which photographer to choose, look no further! Katie will get you the best possible photos! And you’ll probably go home with some really great advice too! Katie recommended to us the Miracle Blanket for swaddling at night. We bought it that same day and have since bought a second one. It has been a lifesaver! So thank you Katie for the great recommendation and the most beautiful photos of our baby boy! More...

I Did my maternity photos at Panos Productions Photography with Katie and I was extremely pleased. Being the procrastinator that I tend to be I was grateful Katie had an opening to squeeze me in as soon as she did. The images were great! We were so happy with our maternity photos we returned and had our babies first newborn pictures done. Katie was extremely gentle with our little girl. Even tho our baby had a mind of her own and didn't want to sleep for her session. Katie was very patient while working with our little wiggle worm. It's very noticeable that Katie loves what she does. She even gave us new parents some pointers that we have used. We Just received the newborn images and We are very happy. We definitely will be recommending her to our friends and family. If you are interested in taking maternity or newborn photos look no further Panos Productions Photography is the place!! More...

Panos Productions Photography did a FANTASTIC job with our newborn photo session. If you are looking to get newborn photos taken - look no further! Katie is a highly talented photographer. Our goal was to walk out of the session with one amazing photo for a birth announcement and honestly - we had a hard time narrowing it down to our top 10 favorites (there were even more than that). Katie was amazing and let us take our time selecting which images we wanted and did not try to pressure us to buy more - she totally let everything be our decision and what we were comfortable with. The best thing I can say about Katie - besides getting a fantastic end result of the MOST amazing photos ever (which is what everyone hopes for)....the photo shoot itself was so smooth sailing. Katie is a PRO with newborns. The safety and comfort of our son was the top priority for her. Other photographers may try to rush to just get you in and out but Katie understands that newborns work off of their own schedule and never rushed anything. She was so good at comforting our son that my husband and I actually felt like we walked away from the session learning some good soothing techniques just from watching her! I only mention that to show you how skilled she is at interacting with newborns - which is something that was very important to us since Katie is the first person to meet our baby outside of the hospital or our home. We will definitely be recommending her to all of our friends and will be going back for future photo shoots as our son reaches other milestones. We cannot recommend Panos Productions Photography enough. BOOK YOUR NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION HERE NOW! You will be SO glad you did!! More...

To start off talking to Katie over the phone regarding Newborn portraits was an experience it's self she explain a lot of different details over our phone conversation, to where she made feel that she new what she was talking about and also Made me feel that my experience was going to be amazing ! Katie out did her self ! She made the photo sesh so comfy and especially having althe session in the comfort of her own home makes the experience more at Ease it didnt feel rushed she took her time with each baby she she made sure babies are safe ! Comfy! Even to the room temp was at a temp for a newborn ! This has been my very first newborn Potraits I have ever done so I highly recommend Panos Photography to everyone ! I have learned that taking Newborn Portraits it's a major job its self it takes a very skilled person to do the job and Katie has that special skill��! YouTube and google make those newborn pictures look so easy !! Not at all !! Not only this will be my very last set of babies and we have been blessed with Twins and to have memories like this are priceless !!!

AMAZING! How in the world did Katie get a shot of my 6 day old baby on a miniature bed, relaxing?! So adorable! “All I can say is WOW! Katie is amazing. The entire experience with Katie was easy, fun, and dare I say... Relaxing?! I was nervous to take my 6 day old baby for a photo shoot because I had no idea how he would act. I was worried he’d be fussy and crying the whole time and we wouldn't end up with great photos. Katie is a baby whisperer. She took such great care of our baby during the shoot and my husband and I were able to just sit back and relax. We didn't have to do anything! Katie perfectly captured our son. They are the most beautiful newborn photos I've ever seen. It's 100% worth the investment to end up with precious photos like these. I would recommend Katie to anyone and everyone looking for the BEST NEWBORN photographer!!" More...

I called Katie to do a personal branding session. Not only did I need headshots for my realtor license, but I needed updated photos for social media, print ads and more. Katie spent a lot of time helping me determine the image I wanted to show, clothing choices and more. Her session was so much more than a 20 min click click done. I'm so glad I spent the time really thinking about what my pictures should do and planning with Katie. More...

Ok, so I never even thought to have newborn photos done of my son, but a friend gifted me a photoshoot with Katie from Panos Productions, and I have to say. ..I am impressed!! Not only was I surprised at how much effort and patience it takes to pose newborns, but I have to say that Katie is AMAZING at it. She was so sweet and gentle with my son and took the time to get great shots, even though he was about a week 'too old' for newborn shots. She has a variety of wraps, outfits, and props that she uses and even a machines that makes a SHHHHHing noise to calm babies down. Katie is a sweetheart and extremely professional. I am glad to have met her and worked with her. My family will treasure the photos that she took of my son! I can't wait to work with her again. Thanks Katie! More...

I contacted Katie about a month ago to set up what was then styled to be a family portrait. While this is not her typical shoot, Katie was so engaged with making sure that I understood the aspects of the portrait before I got off the phone that I called her again about a week later. This is because she was thoughtful, knowledgeable, interested in my vision, and willing to explain step-by-step the entire process to a non-client. Even when it became clear that we had too many people to fit into the space, she helpfully offered suggestions and pose ideas for a different gallery. Her specialty is in maternity, and I am sure many people find her in Tujunga to do infant portraits, but Katie should be your first choice for capturing generational photos, (as we were to do with my mother, grandmother, and daughters), small groups in a set space, and vision ideas of how to capture the images of your family in a truly lovely and meaningful way.

I found Panos Productions and Photography on Yelp and they were close to where I lived. I loved the pictures of Katie's work online. I contacted Katie to do my newborns first photos for me. Katie was very professional and explained everything regarding the upcoming photo shoot over the phone so I new what to expect when I arrived. Katie was excellent with my little one and was so good at calming him down. Usually newborn photos are done within the first 10 days of them being born. My little one was just over a month because he was in the hospital longer then expected. We were so worried he would not be still for his photos and would wake up and cry most of the time. Katie was the baby whisper. She was able to keep him calm and asleep for most of the photo shoot and even once he woke up she was able to calm him down and get more shots. Our proofs arrived in a timely manner and they were all beautiful and we had a hard time picking the ones we liked because all the pictures were beautiful. I would definitely use Panos Productions and Photography again for my future photo needs. More...

Panos photography have been our go-to photographer ever since my wife and I have been together. She has done our maternity photoshoot, Christmas cards and our daughter's infant photoshoot, 1st and 2nd birthday photoshoots. They are very nice and accommodating. It takes a lot of patience to take pictures of little kids and we are glad Katie also has the skill to work the lens. They also offer a decent price compared to other photographers. We will always be going to Panos photography for our family pictures. More...

I located Katie on groupon shortly after the birth of my son in August and contacted her, luckily she had an immediate opening for the newborn shoot. The shoot went better as expected as Katie had a way with my son who was 8 days old at the time, she was able to calm him and keep him sleeping almost the entire time and as a result captured a ton of great photos.  She did so well, I contacted her recently for a second shoot of my son which she recommended is done around the time he started sitting up on his own. This was done last Saturday and I was just sent the proofs and again she was able to get a ton of great beautiful shots of my happy gorgeous son. I highly recommend Katie to any new mom or mom to be as she is very good with babies, trained in fact, is very patient and is an excellent photographer with an eye on capturing beautiful shots.

Thank you so much. It was a fantastic job with our newborn photo session. You are a highly professional photographer. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and come back again soon. We are 100% satisfied with the choice of our photographer. Katie was very attentive to our girl. Professionally works not only with the camera, but also with newborn children. Masterfully reassured our girl and we continued shooting. A neat, cozy studio, a pleasant working atmosphere. Definitely recommend it to her studio. Is able to listen to the client, tries to find a compromise. The safety of the child comes first. Do not look at the clock every 10 minutes, put it all in the work without following the time. The photos were ready exactly in 2 weeks, as it was agreed in advance. The maximum repost among friends. Thank you so much, Katie. More...

Panos Productions Photographer came to our house for a pre shoot  meeting to discuss what kind of pictures we wanted. Katherine is friendly , professional and on time . She puts everyone at ease . We decided where and whom to photograph and decided to have photos done a week later. Katherine and assistant showed up time . My family and dogs behaved pretty well . Katherine even had people who normally don't smile for photos or look relaxed doing both . It didn't  take long before we had some good shots and we were done . The pictures even got better with her editing and I really appreciate her softening my eye wrinkles. I will defiantly refer Panos Productions and use them again when I need pictures. Thank You again More...

Q&A

I like making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. It is always a great feeling to get authentic images of new parents, or of kids that you know clients would not likely get on their own. I enjoy the excitement people have about preparing for their session. Creating and styling clients so that images are unique is up there on the list of things I love as well.

Photography is a skill set that takes time to attain. Since it had been a hobby for many years, it made sense to use these skills. This is a second career for me. I am a retired special education teacher.

There is no doubt that I am especially good with babies and kids. It's a true attribute I have. If you are looking to get images with newborns, babies, or kids up to age 17 or so, you probably want to at least interview me.
