Fort Collins Baby Photographer {Abigail’s First Birthday!}

Your baby’s first birthday is such a huge milestone! Not just for them but for you too! Becoming a parent is such a huge event! Your life is turned upside down and your every moment is spent nurturing this little person and watching them grow. Celebrating those monumental changes is so important! I was so excited to work with Kristin, Brian and baby Abigail to document their family at such a special time! Abigail was so sweet and full of personality and you could just see the love and pride in her parent’s faces!

I loved the big pink balloon they brought to their session and Abigail’s sweet little skirt that showed off those chubby little pre-walker legs! She is a little yoga lover and did a downward dog for us too!

After some traditional portraits, we set her up with her very first cake! She wasn’t so sure about it and didn’t love getting dirty! I love how each baby is different when it comes to cake smash sessions! For Abigail, we ended up hiding some mum mums in the cake to get her to did in haha!

Loveland Newborn Pictures {Little Sister Hallie}

I just loved having Hallie and her big sister (and mom 😉 ) in my Loveland studio for their newborn pictures! Courtlyn was so smitten with her new baby sister and very excited to take on the role of sibling! She’s at such a great age to help out her mom and give Hallie lots of snuggles!! 

Hallie loved being snuggled up and slept like a dream for much of her session! I love this little yawn we caught on camera!

Hallie’s dad played football in college and her mom was excited to surprise him with these photos of the girls with his Cornhuskers gear!

While Hallie was taking a snack break, Courtlyn took center stage. I love giving big siblings a little extra attention at our sessions. They’re right in the middle of a big life change and it’s important to show them they’re still special too!  In the new studio, there’s even a great play area to keep older brothers and sisters entertained when it’s time for baby’s pictures solo.

Loveland Maternity Pictures {Waiting on Baby A}

Loveland Maternity Pictures {Waiting on Baby A}

When Erin contacted me she knew she wanted newborn pictures of her little man but she was on the fence about maternity pictures. I totally understand how intimidating it is to be in front of the camera, but I am so glad we went for it! Soon after we started Erin and Jose were totally at ease being photographed. We laughed and joked and got to know each other, and before they knew it, we were all done! 

Baby A will adore these photos of his mom and dad as he grows. My kids love to  see  “pictures of me in your belly!”. And how special is it as an adult, to see photos of your parents before you were born? 

Expecting your own little bundle? Let’s make sure your they’ve got images to cherish for years to come. Email be at kate@dearkatestudios.com or through the contact for below to learn more!

Loveland Newborn Photography Studio {Little Brother Maxwell}

Loveland Newborn Photography Studio {Little Brother Maxwell}

This sweet family were the winners of my annual giveaway this summer. I was so excited to finally meet them all, especially brand new baby Maxwell! This little newborn won the lottery when it comes to fun, loving families. Big brother Jackson was quite taken with his little brother and did an excellent job snuggling him! I always start with sibling and family images right at the beginning of a session when kiddos are at their best! Once Jackson was done with his job, he spent the morning playing in the new kids area in my Loveland studio. 

We laughed at Maxwell’s many serious little expressions throughout his session. Mom and Dad said he’s always serious! And loves to hold his little hands together over his chest with his little furrowed brow.

He did give us this adorable little smirk while daddy was holding him too!

Is a new little person joining your family? I’d love to capture this special time for you! Working with newborns is one of my very favorite things ever! Email me at kate@dearkatestudios.com for more details!

Loveland Baby Photographer {3 Month Pictures- Jack}

Loveland Baby Photographer {3 Month Pictures- Jack}

I was so excited to baby Jack back in the studio for his 3 month pictures! One of my favorite parts of my job is watching families grow and really getting to know them. I love following my clients on Facebook and Instagram to see part of their little ones every day life, but seeing them back in front of my camera to capture those professional images makes my heart happy! Three months is such a fun age to capture! Babies are full of smiles and really starting to master head control during tummy time!

 Jack is the third child in his family so his mama has some fun traditions already established for her children. Big brother and sister wore the same cloth diaper in their pictures and each kiddo had a similar blanket. I loved incorporating these things into Jack’s three month old photos!!

Grow With Me Baby Plans are a great way to capture all of those milestones throughout baby’s first year as they grow and change! Contact me at kate@dearkatestudios.com or through the contact form above for details! 

Fall Family Mini Session in Fort Collins

Fall Family Mini Session in Fort Collins

I met this sweet family of 3 early one morning down near the Poudre river just north of Old Town Fort Collins. For September, it was a really chilly morning! There was a little bit of frost on the ground and the air was super crisp! We had a great time hanging out down by the water and skipping rocks. I love making family sessions fun! We capture these perfect Christmas card pictures but also those sweet candid moments you don’t want to forget!
