Hi, I’m Kate Taylor. My lifelong passion for art and design developed into Polar Square Designs while I was studying for my BA in Fine Art at the University of Rhode Island. I started out just drawing pet portraits, but soon delved into the world of photography after developing a love for the camera and watching my Mum build her award-winning photography business in Massachusetts.
I split my business three ways between graphic design, web design and photography. I am never bored and enjoy every new project I get to work on. My favourite project is one that involves all three types of work: for instance, a client who is starting a new business and needs a logo, a website, and photographs of their products or retail location for the site.
I live in beautiful Rhode Island with my husband, two daughters, and our two dogs. I offer photography services to New England and New York and am also available for travel.
I am an active member of the Professional Photographers of America and am continuously working to better my skills through their continuing education opportunities.
I am also affiliated with Magic Hour, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that matches professional photographers with those that have fought or are still fighting cancer. The photo sessions are 100% free, and include the digital files as well as a set of professionally printed 5×7’s in a timeless custom box. I think this is a great opportunity to meet some courageous people and give back to the community.
Additionally, I volunteer my design services for the Rhode Island Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RISPCA) for their yearly Marvin Fund fundraiser event at Goddard Park each May. To date, they have raised thousands of dollars from selling t-shirts with my exclusive designs on them. The funds go toward supporting pet owners in the community who are struggling to provide their animals with the vet care and food they need.
I feel very honoured to have the pleasure of working with these awesome organizations!
