I'm Kate

And i'm here to spoil you!


I am an elementary educator turned "Mama" turned photog! Having taught school for several years before becoming a photographer, I have lots of fun tricks up my sleeve to make your shoot a success! Since officially starting my business in 2020, I have narrowed down my photography interests and have found a huge love for documenting families. I know how crazy, wild, and beautiful life can feel with little ones. For me, getting to freeze time so you can soak your loved ones in again and again feels like the ultimate privilege. During a session with me, you can expect it to be fun, light hearted, and go with the flow. I understand that sometimes life just happens and I am here to take the pressure off! I can't wait to help you tell the story of your family while preserving your love for a lifetime. Consider me a new friend along for your journey.


HOW IT ALL BEGAN...

When I was in high school, I went on the trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica. Bringing along my point-and-shoot camera I documented two weeks worth of unparalleled adventure. Upon arriving home and printing my pictures, I was beyond disappointed in the quality, pixilation, and dullness of what had been the ultimate adventure. It was in this moment that I realized my memories deserved better. I deserved to be able to capture my moments with the same vibrancy, beauty, and emotions I felt while living them. The next weekend I went out and spent the remaining money I had saved for this trip on my first "fancy camera". I never looked back.


In college, I took photos for families as a hobby. Years later, while staying at home with our two amazing boys, I made the choice to put teaching on the back burner and I decided to turn my hobby into a licensed business- something that was all my own! Since then I have taken photos for clients all over the country. Being a military family allows us to travel often, live in some surprising yet incredible places, and follow paths we didn't originally set out to go down. I wouldn't have it any other way!
