Skylar Reeves 

Founder / Austin, Texas-Based Star Photographer

Born in Beaumont, Texas, my love affair with photography began at an early age. After modeling for a short time, I found that my true passion was being behind the camera, capturing inspirational images in fashion and portraiture. I attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA, then completed my studies at Atlanta's Portfolio Center. I travel extensively for clients and enjoy shooting fashion, families, and character portraits. Whether shooting children or weddings, I love capturing the real moments, from tears to laughter, with no forced smiles or poses. I absolutely love seeing these moments become precious memories in the form of a lasting image. I am a current member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

Born and raised in a small town in Iowa, I have had the opportunity to live and travel in many areas of the US and Europe!  I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Iowa and have created two small businesses; a women's resource center and a desk top publishing business!  I really enjoy solving problems and love to find creative ways to organize and improve business systems.  I was introduced to Skylar by my daughter during her family photo shoot.  Once I saw our images, I can remember thinking that I had never seen photographs of my family that so clearly captured how much we love each other and how happy we are!  When I heard Skylar was looking for a Studio Manager I couldn't wait to talk with her!  I am honored to be a part of Skylar Reeves Photography and Fame Parties, LLC!  It's going to be so much fun!

Becca Katzmann

Atlanta, Georgia-Based Star Photographer

As I was working on my bio, I requested input from my daughter Piper. I said Piper, what shoud I say in the about me section of the Fame website? She said, Mom, just say you love people! As I thought about her answer, I knew she was right! I love meeting and getting to know people! I love taking pictures! The insight of a four year old is perfect in its simplicity!

On a more serious note … I am a Mom! I have two kiddos that are my little loves! Piper, my wild child, is four and Maddox, my sweet little man, who is 2. I have taken pictures all my life. As a kid I would take my Polaroid everywhere. I have storage containers full of albums from when I was little. It was a hobby until I became a mom, then it became more of an obsession. I started taking pictures of children and babies at my MOMS Club (Moms Offering Moms Support) and Moms Morning Out functions and emailing them to the parents. Then I started getting requests to do family photos. I did them for fun and realized how much I LOVE taking pictures of families, kids, and couples! I went to school for Photography at Portfolio Center, in Atlanta. I'm also a current member of Professional Photographers of America

Carrie Holbo

Washington, D.C.-Based Star Photographer

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago but have called Washington, DC my home for more than ten years now. After studying music and theater in college, I came to DC as an arts management intern at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts — I eventually got my first real job there, and I've been working for arts-related organizations in DC ever since. Photography was always a creative outlet for me, but it's also now a second career. I especially love working with kids — I'm an aunt to three nieces and one nephew (at the current count), and I love capturing all their silly and sweet moments. My shoots are usually more about playing than posing, and I can be a complete goofball — with both adults and kids! It is all so worth it when you can look back at a photo and know that you captured real, natural smiles.

Caitlin Barry

Baton Rouge, Louisiana-Based Star Photographer

After growing up in Texas and Georgia, I landed and fell in love with Louisiana. Although I could live without the sticky humidity that seems to NEVER go away, I do love the people, the culture, the traditions, and lets be honest, the food and drinks! I graduated from the Louisiana State University with my BFA in Photography where I practically lived in the darkroom for several years before turning to the digital side of the photography business. While in school, I had several different jobs, but the job I enjoyed the most was working part time as a daycare teacher. I had so much fun capturing the kids during sweet and silly moments; it was then that I realized that working with kids was my calling!

So here I am in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home of the Tigers and the state I now call home. I am excited to bring Fame Parties to the deep South!

Kimberly’s interest in photography began one special day when,  as a child in the South,  she discovered her father's old Olympus camera. Luckily for Kim, her dad bought her some film, and so began many happy hours spent  photographing cats,  dogs,  birds,  & any human who would let her.  She eventually moved with her family to the great state of Texas and later graduated from Texas Tech University.  Her photo hobby found new meaning when her sister got married in 2005.   After seeing the beautiful images that were captured at the wedding,  Kim’s affection for photography turned into a love affair with documenting special moments in time for people to hold onto forever.  She strives to capture real emotion and love in her images.  Kim specializes in Portrait & Boudoir photography with her own business, and she is overjoyed to bring her love of photography, meeting new people,  and capturing special moments as a member of the amazing Fame Party family.

Paige Baker

Houston, Texas-Based Star Photographer

I am originally from Michigan, I moved to Houston 2 years ago to pursue my passion for children's photography. I am the oldest of 5 kids which made me an instant babysitter and leader. I studied photography at Columbia College Chicago. With my degree I began photographing college sports in Chicago but I decided to move to Houston for warmer weather!

During my shoots I transform into a big kid! I make crazy animal sounds and tell silly jokes rather than asking to you to "smile". I love capturing little ones from behind the lens: the smiles, laughter, joy, and even the tears.
