Say it with pictures.

Brand photography that builds lasting relationships with your ‘match-made in Heaven’ clients.

Picture having an image-bank full of consistently gorgeous on-brand photos you can pull from anytime you need for your website, social media, press-releases, and more! Saving you time, money, stress, and worry.

A huge selection of images that represent you and your business, that share who you are, including the feelings and values of your brand, attracting your ‘match-made-in-Heaven’ clients.


They say, ‘A picture is worth 1000 words.’ So: Say it With Pictures.

I’m Kate Mahaits, story-telling Brand Photographer and modern Marketing Helper.

I help fierce small business owners make lasting connections with ‘match-made in Heaven’ clients.

My favourite thing I’ve heard said about me came from a little girl I used to babysit, “Kate, you make being a dork look cool.” I melted.

My kiddo regularly confirms that’s still true for me (even though he leaves out the ‘cool’ part, I know it’s there).

Any day started with my treasured ‘me-time’ of morning coffee and reading will generally be a great day. I’m that easy-going.

Wanna get me going on random things I’m passionate about? Just bring up old-school baseball, movies, and Dolly Parton.

Sharing is Caring

2% of Okanagan Business Photography’s pre-tax income is donated.

Four times per year, Water First will receive 1% and the other 1% will be donated to various Okanagan based non-profits. I’m totally open to suggestions, so if there’s a non-profit close to your heart, please let me know.

The reason I have chosen Water First to be the primary beneficiary of OBP donations is because I love how they’ve filled such an important gap in our country. We share similar values, the first one being: Everyone has a right to safe, clean water.

Warmly, Kate Mahaits
