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!

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 […]

What to Wear for Studio Portraits {Downtown Loveland Family Photography}

After years of avoiding glitter mini sessions (OMG THE MESS!), I jumped in with both feet last year and had the best time! The mess is totally even worse than I thought it would be but 100% worth the joy on the faces of the kids in front of my camera! Oh, and their mamas […]

Glitter Mini Sessions 2020

All of those memes floating around about the 74th day of January could not feel truer. But at the same time, I’m so grateful it was a long month! January is always a time of renewal and refreshment for me. Fall is to photographers what April is to tax pros! I absolutely love all of […]

Sleep Solutions for Children {Interview with Northern Colorado Pediatric Sleep Specialist}

That first birthday session is totally about celebrating a baby’s growth over their first year, but it’s also about celebrating surviving all those sleepless nights, and the growth you go through as a parent! I was so happy that mom wanted to hop in a few photos to mark that change too. The new studio […]

Happy First Birthday! {Loveland Photography Studio}

  These girls walked into the studio bursting with personality! I love seeing the similarities between these two sisters and also their differences. The girls had a blast scooping up glitter and tossing it around as I photographed them each separately and together. Each girl got her time in the spotlight in front of the […]

Roxy and Alice {A Glitter Session For Sisters!}

  The time has come for GlitterĀ Mini Sessions!! What kiddo wouldn’t love playing with glitter?? I have loved seeing these types of images shared from photographer’s all over the country and wanted to do them for a long time! I’ve finally gotten over my fear of the giant mess they create and can’t wait to […]

Glitter Mini Sessions – Northern Colorado Children’s Photographer

Not to mention also dressing yourself and looking photo ready! The stress ends there with my sessions though! Once you show up, […]
