So grateful to be featured in the New Milford Spectrum this past weekend. Deborah Rose is such a talented writer and such a kind person. We met over building mugs at the Village Center for the Arts in Downtown New Milford. It was such a pleasure to spend the evening with her and Sharon Kaufman, the Executive Director, Pottery Studio Director, and Summer Camp Creation Full Day Camp Head Teacher. Sharon Kaufman hosted an incredible hand building pottery class for adults, I would absolutely recommend their classes to all who are looking for a creative night out.

Katharine “Kat” Manning has opened Hello Studio on Bank Street in New Milford, where she offers photo sessions, social media marketing content and website design.
There’s a new studio in town.
Katharine “Kat” Manning has opened Hello Studio at 45 Bank St. in New Milford.

“I love everything about the photography process,” said Manning. “I love coming up with the ideas for photo shoots, what to capture, making sure everything someone thought of is captured.
“The most fulfilling thing is to see people so happy with the images.”
Manning’s studio not only offers photo sessions for individuals and events but also provides social media marketing content and website design.
“Businesses can have peace of mind knowing that I can come in and create content that’s on point with their branding,” Manning said.
She said many businesses handle their own social media content but find it can be “overwhelming” and “draining.”
She will meet with businesses to “learn the product and create quality products to show their brand.”
“The images will embrace the audience and be interactive,” Manning said, of her contributions to social media marketing campaigns. “I’ll give clients an arsenal of images.”
Jeff Schmidt, one of the owners of At the Corner in Litchfield, praised Manning for her professionalism, flexibility and enthusiasm.
“It’s nice to see someone so young and passionate who mirrors our passion (for what we do),” said Schmidt.
Manning is taking photographs and creating videos and blogs for the restaurant and may even do print work down the road.
“We have a great partnership,” Schmidt said. “She is totally willing to help us redo the website to make it more current, and to streamline things........"
