The Experience!
  • “Working with Kollene and Mattias was a wonderful experience from start to finish. It is inspiring to meet people who not only do their work with talent and precision, but also with JOY.”

    Allison Silver Schwartz
  • “Working with Kollene & Mattias was so enjoyable. We couldn’t be happier with the service and the final product we received from them. Our pictures are so beautiful. We look forward to working with them in the future for all of our photography needs.”

    Tricia and Ryan Frenz
  • “It was mid-January, and the thought of taking senior pictures didn’t even occur to me until I saw the beautiful pictures my fellow classmates had taken with Blonde Cow Photography. Kollene and Mattias were gracious enough to squeeze me in despite their tight schedules and still managed to offer me an incredibly customized and comfortable experience. I wanted my senior pictures to have a sort of colonial feel to remind me of my hometown. Having heard my ideas during our first consultation, Kollene immediately came up with several venues for us to shoot. Her attention to details as well as professional eye for aesthetics made the final product beyond everything that I could have imagined it to be. Needless to say, I was absolutely satisfied. Mattias followed up with my printing orders, and he was very helpful in suggesting what products and packages would best suit my needs. To any one who seeks a personalized, memorable, and aesthetic photo session, Blonde Cow is your choice”

    Michelle
  • “I was referred to Blonde Cow by a friend. We were both getting senior pictures taken; In fact, many students from my school went to blonde cow. I still felt my experience was very personalized, and that they took the time to know who I was and what I wanted out of this experience. Going in, I had expressed my concerns with the pictures because I have braces so I was a little uncomfortable with my smile. Shortly within the photoshoot, I was comfortable and smiling with teeth.”

    Tatiana
  • “We are so pleased with the pictures, and the personal attention to every decision we made in choosing the best pictures for our books and wall pictures. We also thought that both Kollene & Mattias were so kind and made us feel so comfortable at every visit. We definitely will use them again”

    Don & Millie
  • “We have had a wonderful experience with Kollene and Mattias. We purchased the maternity to 1 year old photo package, and really got to know them with our 4 sessions. They are professional and stress free. What makes them exceptional is that they truly care about the kids, and trouble shoot to make even my diva toddler happy. Kollene invited my toddler on a special ice cream date before our recent photo shoot. Then they were best friends, and the photo shoot was perfect. I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. I’m pretty sure Kollene deserves a Nobel peace prize. We couldn’t be happier, and our pictures are priceless.”

    Jean Ly
  • “Dear Kollene & Mattias, Thank you both so very much for taking such beautiful photos of me and my whole family! It was all so easy because of all the special attention you pay to every detail. You’re also so sweet it helps us to feel comfortable! – Love, Ayla”

    The Westheimer’s
  • “My daughter had her senior photos done by Blonde Cow Photography. The entire experience was amazing! We had such a great time on the shoot. Kollene is so sweet and laid-back, it was as if we were with a good friend. Her husband Mattias helped us with the order and patiently showed us the most amazing photographs. His eye for color and detail complement his wife’s incredible talent. The most difficult part was deciding which of the beautiful photos to purchase. The whole experience was wonderful! The photos are perfect and will be cherished for a lifetime.”

    Betsy
  • “Kollene is a creative genius who knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.  She has the magical ability to rope in a busy toddler and inspire them to smile.  Mattias brings it all to life.  He gets a feel for your style and his ideas and suggestions are amazing.  Their collective work translates to such stunning art.  We can’t feel luckier to have found them to capture our family’s milestones and moments.”

    Lauren
  • “I had decided to skip the senior photos until I saw Kollene’s work.  I knew she could capture the spirit of my son in a way that was both timely and creative. Kollene and Mattias were efficient, relaxed, creative and just so fun to work with!”

    Lee Ann
  • “We are a blended family of 5 who have been together for years. We had no desire to have a big ceremony and decided to surprise our kids with our wedding. They were told we were going to the beach for a family photo shoot. Kollene was AMAZING. I knew the pictures would be stunning because I had studied her work and carefully chose her but she is such an amazing soul. She was so kind and elegant in ways I can’t describe. She felt like a member of the family. Her work is clearly her passion and I can’t thank Blonde Cow Photography enough for making this one of the happiest days of our lives!”

    Becky Mason
  • “We loved working with Kollene and Mattias!! From start to finish they were professional, thorough, accommodating and friendly. The finished products turned out even more beautifully than I anticipated, we will treasure them for many years to come!”
