"Cindy has photographed for Encore Stage & Studio for five seasons and she continues to blow us away with her photography and perspective. She captures the most subtle, yet beautiful moments both onstage and backstage. These moments become so impactful for our print and digital materials to share the story of how theatre inspires young people. "
Not only are her photos amazing, Cindy is such a delight to work with! Her easy-going and personable approach makes the experience natural and fun for our children and staff. We are so grateful for Cindy for capturing "theatre by kids, for kids!"
I asked Cindy to photograph our family of five at the only home our kids had known before our cross-country move. The pictures literally took my breath away when I saw them.
From silliness to orneriness she got us all. Almost every picture feels like Cindy was hiding behind a tree and just so happened to catch my girls climbing it, or my husband tickling our youngest. When it was over even the reluctant teenager said it was fun. -VL
Cindy brings a peace and calm with her to the job - she just kind of disappears into the backdrop of the hospital room and quietly extracts with her camera lens those first moments you never want to forget. She made the whole process so comfortable and natural, with her own experience as a mother providing an added sense of nurturing to her craft. She engaged so sweetly with our older daughters while somehow sneaking adorable shots of their responses and reactions to their little brother's waking up to the world.
On top of talent behind the camera, a hospital photographer's ability to blend into their surroundings, interact with staff, navigate around medical equipment, respect the process going on, and keep everyone at ease is crucial -- Cindy nails this balance with true professionalism and grace. -AL
Cindy traveled to my tiny New York apartment to take photos of my aging cat, Milkface.
Her gentle approach really captured Milkface's sweet personality and miraculously, no hint of claustrophobia from my cramped apartment.
After Milkface's passing, Cindy worked with me to design the picture's unique framing style and the result was simply fantastic. Quality far beyond what I could have done on my own.
Speaking from experience: Cindy Kane is the family member you didn’t know you had until she arrived at your hospital room door during one of the most significant, earth shattering, and vulnerable times of your life. The warmth and empathy Cindy naturally radiates makes you feel like longtime childhood friends. She knows exactly what to say, when to say it, and moves throughout the hospital room with a gentle ease and a tender purpose. She treats her subject as if it were a loved one of her own--with the utmost compassion and respect. -KC
