What if being photographed

was actually fun?


If you’re anything like me, you’re watching time speed up and trying to grasp every moment with your children. You know that if you don’t document your baby right this second you’ll blink and he’ll be a teenager. The traditional family photo is important to you but you want something deeper and more true to you. Not just pictures of people, but pictures that bring you back to moment. That feeling of motherhood at this stage that might feel different tomorrow. I’ve been there too and it’s why I’ve built Dear Kate Studios to be a different kind of photography studio.

Dear Kate Studios is located in Loveland, Colorado and serves clients throughout Northern Colorado, including Fort Collins, Windsor, Wellington, Berthoud, Longmont, and Greeley.

"Kate has always captured our family so beautifully and naturally. She is incredible with making kids feel comfortable in front of the camera and makes getting our photos done fun! She's the best!"

How it Works

Session Prep

We’ll start out with a questionnaire so I can get to the root of who you are as a family. I’m here to help you choose wardrobes and locations and make everything super stress free and customized to you!

Let's Play!

You’ll get simple prep instructions to make sure everyone is feeling their best the day of your session. When you show up at our location, be ready to play, run and snuggle. All of the things that make family time the greatest!

Choose Your Favorites

Within just a few days of your session, you’ll receive a gorgeous proofing gallery to choose your favorite images from! I’m here to offer advice on printing but you do receive full resolution digital images with printing rights for every image you purchase.

Hi! I'm Kate! I married my high school sweet heart over 10 years ago and we have three wildly adorable and chaotic kids. We live for summers camping and playing in whatever river, lake or even puddle that's nearby. In the winter you'll find us cozied up watching movies, having dance parties in the kitchen or doing art projects together. This motherhood gig is a huge part of me and I love seeing how different motherhood looks for everyone! Can't wait to learn about you and your family too!
