Breanna and Justin brought baby Harper into the studio at just 13 days old but we had been planning her session for months! I love when parents contact me in the 2nd trimester so I can be prepared with special sets just for their baby 🙂 Breanna let me know that family photos were very important to them. I’m so thrilled with the results here! You can just feel the pride and love in mom and dad’s arms as they hold their brand new baby girl <3
Justin warned me when he walked in that he was not a fan of being photographed! No worries though! I work so quickly to get these images and make it as painless as possible, when his job was done he was so excited!
I love those sweet gorgeous eyes! Little miss Harper fell asleep right after I took that shot on the right though and did amazing for the rest of her session! That pose is a go to for a sleepy baby who can’t quite pass out. All of those layers wrapped on them make them feel so secure!
Breanna found these adorable little cowboy boots when she was still pregnant with her baby girl. I love how this set up reflects their family and what they love to do! It’s so fun to do one setup like this for a session <3
Of course we did a quick change so there was also a setup to match her nursery <3

Jack came into my Loveland studio with his sweet mama when he was just a few days old! It was a nice break for mom who left 18 month old big sister at home with grandma! The studio is so peaceful and calm during newborn photography sessions! When you arrive, you get to take a little break while I care for baby and get them into a nice sleepy state for posing. How adorable is the sweet slumbering baby Jack? And how gorgeous is his mama?!
I found this vintage hershey’s chocolate tin in a local antique store and I just love how these images turned out with it! The little teddy bear is from Jelly Cats. These are my favorite little loveys! My youngest kiddo has a couple of puppies from this brand and they are perfect for tucking under a toddlers arm. They’ve become one of my favorite gifts to give my nieces and nephews!
Do you have a go to gift for the babies in your life? I’d love to hear all about it! We have a new nephew joining the family in August again!
Baby Ryker and his big brother came to my Loveland studio on Valentine’s day! It was a perfect day for a newborn session so full of love. We started the session with some family images and then snuck in some pictures of big brother solo while baby was eating. Big brother headed to preschool after that and I got to work posing the little mister <3
Look how tender that little kiss on baby’s forehead is! I love the expression on mom and dad’s faces. There is nothing like seeing your child become a sibling. Watching your children grow up together and turn into best friends is just the best. Seeing your kids love on each other makes you feel like you must be doing something right!
So glad we could sneak in some solo pictures of Mister Hudson to celebrate his 3rd birthday too! It’s so important to give a little extra attention to big brother to let him know he’s not being replaced in any way!

I could have snuggled little Adrian all day! He was so sweet and calm and just beautiful! He slept great for his newborn pictures and was so fun to pose! I loved getting to know his parent’s during their maternity session a few weeks earlier and then seeing them after his birth as a family of 3! It’s such an honor to document this very short time is a family’s life. Everything changes very quickly when you add a new baby to the mix!
If you are expecting a new little family member, I’d love to work with you. I’m currently booking for summer and fall due dates. Most clients contact me in their second trimester to ensure a space on my calendar.
Judson slept like a rock star for his newborn pictures at my Loveland photography studio! I loved snuggling this tiny little boy while his mom and dad got to take a little rest on my studio sofa. Of course not until after their first family portrait. Can’t you just feel the love radiating off them? The love you feel for your partner when you welcome a new baby is something so special! I really got to know Caroline and Ignacio during their maternity session and it was so fun to watch them become parents for the first time. Here are a few words from Caroline about the experience:

I feel so blessed to have held and snuggled each and every one of these sweet little newborn babies in their first days of life. I absolutely love my job as a newborn photographer in Northern Colorado and love working with new moms and dads as they settle into parenthood or adjust to life with a second child in their homes and in their hearts. The stage of life where we get to experience pregnancy, birth and babies is so short! My youngest is now 2.5 and our family is complete, but my love for that period of life is still so strong and I am passionate about serving other moms in the thick of it. It’s a complete joy and honor to be trusted to care for you infant and capture those precious memories of this fleeting time for you. Thank you for putting your babies in my arms <3
There is something sort of magical about looking back at a years worth of work and experiences and seeing the growth and the change. It was a big year for Dear Kate Studios. I was lucky enough to photograph babies from Loveland, Fort Collins, Westminster, Eaton, Greeley, Wellington and more. I got to watch babies grow from one milestone session to the next and through their parent’s instagram and facebook accounts. I welcomed 2 new neices and new nephew into the studio. Celebrated first birthdays, family reunions and documented families as they grew. Dear Kate Studios physically grew too! In October, I moved from my 200sq ft studio space to 1000 sq ft! I love being able to welcome families in to play and get comfortable while I work with their baby. I’ve got snacks, coffee, a changing table and everything you could need for your newborn session! If you haven’t been in yet, I can’t wait for you to see it!! I’m still putting the finishing touches on decor but will write a blog post with lots of pictures once it’s ready! With the new studio I am so happy to be able to offer you more and I can’t wait to share all of the things I’ve been working on for 2017. But first, I’m so happy to share with you some of my favorite newborn pictures from 2016. Thank you again!!

I'm my happiest when the warm sun is on my face, my children are growing and playing and learning, and I'm sitting back with my camera in hand photographing all of the little nuances of their personalities and relationships with each other. You'll see that throughout this website in both the words and pictures. I'm so happy you're here and I'd love to get to know you! Find me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/dearkatestudios and let's chat!
