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!

Summer is my absolute favorite season and I am not ready to let it go just yet! This sweet family of three met me in the foothills just north of Fort Collins one evening in August to play. Can you believe how gorgeous this location is? It’s literally 5 minutes from Fort Collins proper! This […]

Fort Collins Foothills Glowy Family Photos

Do you hear it? I hear it too. That little voice telling me all of the reasons I don’t need to book our family for photos. “The kids haven’t really grown or changed that much since our session last summer. And I need to lose weight. And our schedule is so busy when will we […]

Why you should quiet that little voice inside your head and book your family photos

What is better than spending a gorgeous sunny evening with The Pilkington family (who obviously love each other)? Absolutely nothing! This family is so sweet, and their little boy is growing up so fast! I did Gauge’s maternity and newborn photographs. It’s hard to believe he’s two years old now! One of the absolute joys […]

The Pilkington Family | Dear Kate Studios Family Photographer

Your baby’s first birthday is such a huge milestone! Not just for them but for you too! Becoming a parent is such a huge event! Your life is turned upside down and your every moment is spent nurturing this little person and watching them grow. Celebrating those monumental changes is so important! I was so […]

Fort Collins Baby Photographer {Abigail’s First Birthday!}

I just loved having Hallie and her big sister (and mom 😉 ) in my Loveland studio for their newborn pictures! Courtlyn was so smitten with her new baby sister and very excited to take on the role of sibling! She’s at such a great age to help out her mom and give Hallie lots […]

Loveland Newborn Pictures {Little Sister Hallie}

When Erin contacted me she knew she wanted newborn pictures of her little man but she was on the fence about maternity pictures. I totally understand how intimidating it is to be in front of the camera, but I am so glad we went for it! Soon after we started Erin and Jose were totally […]

Loveland Maternity Pictures {Waiting on Baby A}

This sweet family were the winners of my annual giveaway this summer. I was so excited to finally meet them all, especially brand new baby Maxwell! This little newborn won the lottery when it comes to fun, loving families. Big brother Jackson was quite taken with his little brother and did an excellent job snuggling […]

Loveland Newborn Photography Studio {Little Brother Maxwell}

I was so excited to baby Jack back in the studio for his 3 month pictures! One of my favorite parts of my job is watching families grow and really getting to know them. I love following my clients on Facebook and Instagram to see part of their little ones every day life, but seeing […]

Loveland Baby Photographer {3 Month Pictures- Jack}

I met this sweet family of 3 early one morning down near the Poudre river just north of Old Town Fort Collins. For September, it was a really chilly morning! There was a little bit of frost on the ground and the air was super crisp! We had a great time hanging out down by […]

Fall Family Mini Session in Fort Collins

Year after year I watch these babies grow and it never ceases to amaze me how fast they change! This was Lucy’s 5th and Calvin’s 4th time in front of my camera! For family photos this year they were totally comfortable just being themselves. They hunted grasshoppers, took turns snuggling mom and dad, dipped their […]
