HIGHLY recommend Kate! We had so much fun during our session! She captured us so naturally and perfectly in our photos! She had great pose set up ideas and location suggestions, but it really all felt so natural/comfortable. We are obsessed with our photos and will absolutely book with Kate again next time!

Your Photos Should feel likE You!

What makes you feel comfortable & beautiful? What games or silly sayings get your kids laughing? What colors do you love to style your home and yourself with? What locations hold special meaning to your family? What do you want captured so that when your babies look back at these photos years from now, will remind them of all the ways they were loved so hard by you?

Overly posed photos are a waste of my time and your money! I shoot for candid moments of affection, sweet hand holds, snuggles, kisses, tickles, and love. These are the moments that last a lifetime. Sure, I will get a few of everyone looking at the camera, but you looking at each other tells your story SO much better. LOVE. OUT. LOUD. (and let me snap a few cute photos while you're at it).

A family lifestyle session oozing with love, for your viewing pleasure.
