Hi, I'm Kate.

Growing up, I was an Air Force brat and so we moved around a lot.  From a very young age, I had a knack for making friends quickly and adapting to different situations.  When I was a young adult, I had the opportunity to travel quite a bit.  In college, I spent a year studying at la Sorbonne in Paris, France.  I ended up meeting the love of my life (cheese-ball, sorry!) there and we spent five glorious years living in Paris after we were married.  My time in city of light and love taught me how to make connections in a variety of situations.  I learned how to be patient with people, and to listen to their stories. I even learned how to convey my personality in a different language! 

This is exactly what I love about meeting new photography clients.  I'm  a very outgoing and warm person and love talking and laughing with others.  You shouldn't be surprised if I am being a goofball during our session because that is what I'm most comfortable doing, and I'm quite used to it having two young daughters who have inherited my silly bone.  During your session, I want you to truly enjoy yourself and leave in a better mood than when you arrived. I want you to trust me when I tell you that this is my job and you should not stress.  I absolutely know how to make you look your best, and i have a few tricks up my sleeve to make kids relax and give authentic smiles.  I want you to know that my priority is for your portrait session to be relaxed, fun and beautiful.

Most importantly, I want to help you tell your family's story. It would be my absolute privilege to provide you with photographs and family heirlooms that you will cherish for a lifetime.

What I really love in a portrait session is seeing how family members interact with each other. I can't wait to freeze time and capture those portraits for you!


If you feel a connection with the images you see on my website then chances are I am the photographer for you.

I can’t wait to meet you!
