An Introduction | Kate Montaner | Portrait & Lifestyle Photography | Northern Virginia & Washington, D.C.

Why hello! There have been a few new likes to the page recently so I thought I would introduce myself and tell you a little bit about my business. I have always loved taking photos, but didn't become truly serious about it (read: obsessed) until my first daughter was born.  I was devoted to capturing all of her first moments, expressions, and milestones (and some of the photos from that period are so precious to me as that little baby girl is now a rising 2nd grader!)  Along came another daughter and I continued to practice and learn everything I could about photography.  I realized this is something I wanted to devote time to and share with others, hence Kate Montaner Photography was born.  

I love being able to help families capture that elusive photo they can't get where everyone is not only looking their very best, but where you can really feel personalities shine through the image.  I photograph all stages of life: from newborn to engagement, head shots, glamour, maternity, family and seniors (High School Seniors, that is- but I do love photographing grandparents!).  

My favorite part about my job is meeting new people. I am so fortunate to have some awesome clients that have become friends.  So many of my clients are just like me:  that is, pretty anxious about getting in front of the camera because she is nervous about not looking her best.  The thing is, if you trust me I can get you looking your best- and let your heart radiate through your eyes right into my lens.  All you have to do is take that step. 

Are you ready?  

Contact me today to talk about planning a session! For a limited time I am offering Summer Mini sessions which are a great value and a great way to try professional photography if you weren't convinced yet.

Oh, and here is a little throw back photo of when I was a young newlywed living in Paris with my French husband.  See how I'm sort of squinting because the sun is blinding me?  Well, I didn't take the photo! (haha)  That being said, I am so glad to have this photo because it reminds me of a time in my life when I was (super!) young and living an amazing adventure in Paris. That is what photos are about.  Capturing a moment.  And while you're doing it, why not make it beautiful?  

That's where I come in to help  :)
