Outdoor Family Photos

Northern Colorado outdoor family pictures focused on capturing connection, relationships, and the little things that make parenthood so beautiful.

You crave beautiful photos for your walls and to share with friends and family but the standard smile and pose doesn’t quite do it for you. Your family is full of life and love and you want your photos to reflect that for the generations to come. Me too! For that reason, I create a fun and relaxed environment where your true personalities and relationships shine. Together we will create portraits of your family that you can be proud of and we will have fun doing it!

People are their most beautiful when they are laughing, crying, dancing, playing, telling the truth, and being chased in a fun way.

Kate did an amazing job, we just love her style! We had to ordered the largest package because we couldn’t decide which photos we liked best! But aside from all that, her gallery site is beautiful and easy to use, she is timely on turn around time, and the final edits were easy to download. So professional and organized! All around, I can’t recommend her enough!

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!

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.forever!
