Audra Mitchell is bar none one of the most talented cat photographers in the country. Obviously, I am not the only one to think this as her photos have graced several cat magazine covers. So, living in Georgia, I knew I wanted her to photograph my cats. First of all, my furbabies are adorable; and second of all, her studio was a short drive away. It seemed to be a no-brainer for me. She had an incredible amount of patience when working with my kitties, and she was at complete ease doing it with her "kitty wrangling" ways. She really did a remarkable job on their photos; they were absolutely gorgeous. I positively love the use of props and different backgrounds. I don't know how she does it, but she really makes those furry faces picture perfect. After having seen her talents with cats, several families and I had her shoot prom photos for our children. She had to work with 18 teens in less than two hours! Talk about a task, right? She did a phenomenal job with the group, and the photos are amazing. I loved my daughter's photos, they are just so cute! She truly looks like a princess. Thank you so much Audra for these precious memories. If you are in the Metro Atlanta area, and you are looking for a good family photographer, don't hesitate, you will be more than happy with the quality of her work, professionalism, and she is super TIMELY with returning photos!

Audra Mitchell did a wonderfuljob taking photo my odd eye white Persian. MiMi did not want open her eyes and Audra worked very hard until she was able to capture the real beauty of my OEW Persian. I chose Audrra because another exhibitor showed me the photos Audra had taken of her boy. This boy too was very difficute to capture his beauty. The photo was breath taking. Had I not seen her photos I probably would have not had MiMi's photo taken. I think her prices are very fair. I would use Audra again. She is very professional, but very friendly and funny. I got my photos allot faster than any other photographer I have used in the past.

Audra is totally professional in every way. She is calm and soothing and gets the best photos. She took photos of our solid black female Maine Coon, RW, SGC MTNest Moonshadow of MaineVu that were so outstanding that she is on her 2012 calendar for the month of December! Then she took photos of our brown classic kitten RW, Woodpile Muddy Waters of MaineVu (aka: Mo) that are amazing! I highly recommend Adura and would love to use her services again!

MY 2 CENTS WORTH on Audra Mitchell Photography has very poor business practices. Very expensive for the value received. Only received 2 of each cat taken in lo resolution cropped photos by email. Extra high cost for prints or CD, Audra Mitchell Photography took the photos of my cats and put on a calendar for sale. One of my cats is on the front cover, yes Audra Mitchell Photography has the copyright, but at least could have let me know that this was done, instead I found out from someone that received an email from Audra, stating that she had done a calendar of the breed and their cat's photos were on the calendar. This is very poor customer service.

This customer has been lying and slandering me ever since I refused to give in to her demand for free prints with her purchase. Her allegations that my products are expensive is absurd. I offer the cheapest photo packages of any cat photographer out there ($45 and included 2 digital images). The customer was informed before, during and after the session about what exactly she would receive and agreed and signed my contract and photo release. I invested extra time and patience in the photo session since she was a "special needs" person and gave her some spectacular images to choose from. The images I took of her cats were some of my highest quality photography, and I use them in my Facebook photography page portfolio and used them in my cat breed calendars. I have received outstanding reviews on the photos of this clients cats. After she chose her images for me to edit (having chose more than the package allowed), I told her she would have to purchase the additional images not included in the photo contract. At that point, she began insulting the quality of the photos, saying they were poor, and she wasn't happy with them anyway. She then proceeded to extort me to send her my ultra high quality fine art prints of her photo choices for free or else she would continue to lie about my services to all of the regional cat show managers. She said the $45 per cat, per session, she paid for an average of at least 30 minute photography session and 1 hour photo finishing time was over priced, which is absurd. It is a known fact I am the most reasonably priced professional cat photographer in the nation. In an attempt to make her happy with her purchase, I gave her 2 extra free digital images of her cats and asked her to stop with her lies. She continues to harass me to this day. My clients sign a photo release with each session, stating that Audra Mitchell has the full copyright to each and every photo taken, unless the client wishes to purchase same. I used several of the photos taken of her cats in my breed calendars, because they were such spectacular quality. She feels I was "extorting her" and should have given her compensation for using the photos for commercial purposes. Obviously false. I have done everything I could to make this client happy from spending extra time in the photo sessions, handling special editing requests that took a lot of extra time to accommodate, to giving her free images. This review is not in character with the rest of my reviews and have asked that it be removed by Kudzu, due to the false allegations and slander attempt by this emotionally unstable client.
Audra, with the help of her wonderful husband, caught the magic of my beautiful Siberian kitten in wonderful, beautiful photographs that I will love and treasure forever! I would recommend her to anyone and actually went out of state to have her be my photographer!

I had 2 cats that needed photos. I was waiting till Audra Mitchell was going to be at a cat show to photograph them. She has great ideas and puts her special touches to each picture. Her pictures of my Maine Coons were absolutly breath taking. I will use her again and reccommend her to everyone. I cant forget to add her patience with my cats. I just cant say enough good thing about her.

I used Audra for my first show cat photos. I was hooked from the day I got the proofs! I can't say enough about how professional she, she has more patience with animals than you can imagine. She works on lighting, setting for cats like no other. I liked her work so much I had her do a private session at my home and some of my pet clients even used her and loved her!!! If you want someone who is GREAT I would highly recommend Audra. I am already to set up another session. I can't wait. Thanks Audra for doing such a great job! So glad I found you!

Audra is an innately gifted photographer. Audra was able to capture the true essence of my personality in the photos that she took and we met for the first time on the day of the shoot. Audra has an ease about her that makes it easy to relax in front of the lens. I was so impressed with the proofs that Audra sent that I had a hard time selecting just one favorite. I've just recently begun using my new professional business photo and I've already received many compliments! I would highly recommend Audra to anyone looking for a Photographer. Audra was simply a pleasure to work with.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the portraits Audra took of my cat, Nelson. He was less than cooperative during the photo shoot, as he has a heart condition & didn't feel well, but Audra was very patient and understanding and we ended up with several absolutely gorgeous portraits that I will cherish long after he is gone. I can't thank her enough. Highly recommend!

I waited a year for Audra to come to one of the cat shows I was showing at...and it was worth the wait! I absolutely LOVE the photos she took of my 3 girls. I had not ever been able to get good pictures of two of my girls, but Audra really brought out their personalities. And my kitties had so much fun!!!

My family had not taken any "family" photos in quite sometime. We decided to use Audra Mitchell Photography which was the best choice we could have ever made. She was VERY professional and personable. The pictures came out AWESOME! I placed my order to purchase the photos and included in that order was a large 13x24. As I walked through the office corridor of the SunTrust Building carrying the pictures, several people, many I did not know, stopped to compliment me on the photos. It was truly amazing! I could not believe how many people actually stopped me to ask me about the pictures! I recently attended a family function at which time I distributed some of the photos and I could not believe how our family "drooled" over the pictures! I had to give out more than I expected and I will have to order more! Audra is the best and I will always use her services and I HIGHLY recommend her!

Audra did a wonderful job with our engagement photographs. They were so beautiful we ended up using one of them for our Save-the-Date cards. Honestly, it was hard to chose which photo we liked best. She is extremely professional and very quick with product turn-around. I couldn't have asked for anything better! Great work; I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again!

Audra is an amazing photographer who captures the essence of true beauty! She is a joy to work with and will make you feel comfortable in any setting. Audra did a wonderful calendar for me. The layout was impeccable and the pictures were captivating. I do highly recommend her services, whether it is photography for fun, glamour, modeling, pagentry, or a special event. She is AMAZING!
