Celebrating 10 years of sought-after experience and masterful imagery, enriched and inspired by YOU.

A decade later, trends and technology have come and gone, but I still have a camera 

in my hands and I love it more than ever. I'm often asked what I love most about being a photographer and honestly, it's meeting legends like you. Really though! You're out there finding the loves of your life and discovering what it means to be the best versions of yourselves and I get to document the story of it all. Your lives have so enriched mine and ten years later it's an adventure I never grow tired of.

I married Captain Awesome McHandsome Pants 7 years ago and he's just the best. I hope you get to meet him.

ABOUT

I think marrying Christopher was one of the best experiences of my life. He's the Superman to my Lois Lane and best co-adventurer I could have ever prayed for.

I believe that life is staggering and that sadly, we're just used to it. The smell of rain, the turning color of leaves, even our own love stories... we somehow stop feeling the magnitude of it all. I wish there was a way to capture these feelings, freeze them in time so I could replay it again and again when I forget. 

I suppose that's the thrill of photography--capturing the transient. Whether your love is the strong silent kind that shows itself in knowing eyes and tender embraces, or if your love is the loud laughter and infectious kind that can barely contain the joy and excitement you feel... I want to be there. With my camera. Taking snapshots so that time will forever be frozen still.

I believe the best moments are sparked outside expectation, when we let ourselves get swept up in the story that's happening right now, all around us. We can't always plan for these moments--they happen fast... sometimes as fast as the click of a shutter. And they almost always happen when we're not looking around at what everyone else is doing.

This life you're living is the stuff of legends. Be here. Live your adventure. I'll be there too... with my camera ready.

About Kate

I think digital photos are important, so I deliver them every time.

However....

I BELIEVE that our photos deserve a life that breathes and FEELS like FOREVER in your hands. I believe they deserve a home unaffected by ever-changing technology and broken devices.

I believe it's a RESPONSIBILITY of mine to deliver a set of images that will stand the test of time so you can continue telling your story long after "swipe right" is a thing.

I want you to have them as soon as possibly can. You can expect your photos 2-4 weeks after the shoot, but often they show up sooner.

WE AREN'T SURE WHERE TO TAKE OUR PORTRAITS. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS? My favorite places to shoot are those with character. I often shoot in wilderness parks, the beach, and old-timey urban areas. But above all, the best place for a portrait shoot is one that fits your personal style.... and the outfits you're wearing. Fancy ball gowns don't quite fit with a picnic park....

“Kate has such a unique, yet classic style in her work. She is smart and incredibly talented in the way she takes pictures, and her style is never corny. Her style also is conducive for executing many different types of shots: the classic close up, artistic ideas, and fun poses. Some portrait photographers only give a limited number of shots, but Kate edits and gives you a ton 

of them--such a great value! The pictures 

Kate has taken of me are some of my favorite pictures of myself. The quality and style can't be matched...she is simply the best!”

“Kate was a Godsend for our Holiday Family shoot. Being a Graphic Designer by trade, I've worked with my share of photographers. Kate's work was a breath of fresh air among the commercial styles of photographers today. She not only possess that special eye for compositions, her pictures really seem to capture the essence of her subjects. In our case, how goofy and silly of a family we are. She made the kids feel comfortable and more like their normal selves throughout our shoot. They definitely had a lot of fun. Nathan especially enjoyed the leaf throwing session. She was a delight to work with and obviously has a special gift. I highly recommend this talented photographer.”

"We LOVED working with Kate! She did a family photoshoot of my husband and I and our baby girl. She made our family laugh and feel good, and just have a lot of fun while doing the photo shoot. The photos were a piece of artwork. We got tons of compliments on them and will have them forever."
