Welcome, friend! I'm Kate. I married my high school sweetheart over 10 years ago and we have three curious and imaginative kids. You'll find motherhood stories and ideas here, along with gorgeous photos and videos!

I sat down with Heather Griffith-Harris of Young People’s Learning Center to chat child development, discipline, and education. This chat was such an eye-opener for me and gave me some new ways to talk to my children! We discussed what to do in the midst of a tantrum and how to handle disputes between siblings […]

Young People’s Learning Center {Interview with Heather Griffith-Harris}

I so often see families in front of my camera in the newborn to toddler stage for family photos. In those days, your kids are changing so quickly and you can see the growth in the day by day. Those yearly photos seem to fall off for a lot of families once everyone is in […]

Fort Collins Family Photos {The Smiths}

During these freezing cold days, I’m so grateful for my nice cozy studio located in downtown Loveland. Taking pictures outside this time of year is just not in the cards for me. I’m a lot like a small child when I get cold; it’s all I can focus on and there is no fun to […]

A long January and brand new year

She’s a local multi-passionate entrepreneur with a focus on better health through mindfulness, exercise, and skincare. Did you know mindfulness and yoga are good for children of all ages too? We chatted about the benefits of […]

Family Balance Yoga and Better Beauty with Robin {Local Specialist Interview}

When I first met Miss Taylor as newborn, she was such a tiny peanut!! It was so fun to see her growth at 4 months old and document this tummy time stage. She was full of smiles and curiousity! Big sister Aly helped get Taylor smiling too <3 I love seeing the changing and growing […]
