Fun family photography Loveland Photography studio

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. You totally want those classic photos of everyone smiling and looking at the camera but you also want something deeper and more meaningful to you and your family. Less so, pictures of people, more like pictures that bring back sense memories and feelings. I’ve been there too and it’s why I’ve built Dear Kate Studios to be a different kind of photography studio.
Absolutely LOVED working with Kate for maternity and newborn pictures. Not only were the photos catered to our personalities and wants, they were so well done. It was hard to narrow down which ones we wanted to order! Can't wait to get Kate to take more pictures of our new family soon!

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!

Kate is incredible. She is kind, my kids love her and react well, she captures incredible moments, and I always have the hardest time selecting photos because they are all perfect! Her studio has amazing light too! I love the options to do a studio session or an onsite. I like both options for specific reasons and it's so nice to have both options!

Kate was beyond incredible!! We absolutely loved our sunset foothills family shoot! We were so excited about getting new family pictures with our new little guy who just turned one a week before the shoot. Kate was so amazing with our little guy ... so personable and fun! We have an absolute beautiful portfolio now that we will forever cherish. Thank you, Kate, for capturing forever moments of our family! We can not wait for our next photo shoot!
