•Access to my professional print lab so you get heirloom-quality prints and products that you can pass down for generations.
I know having photos taken can feel like a big investment! I want you to walk away with only the photos you love the most so I’ve set up pricing with collections of digital images.
You pay a session fee of $275 to book your spot and then choose your collections AFTER you see your images! Digital collections start at $400.
Most family package clients spend a final total between $900-1300 for full imagery prints and collections.
Oh hey, I got a little carried away on my soapbox about how fast those newborn days move and didn’t introduce myself!
I’m Kate. I married my high school sweetheart over 10 years ago and we have three curious and imaginative kids. We live for summers camping and playing in whatever river, lake, or even puddle that's nearby. Sun and sand are our jam. In the winter you'll find us cozied up watching movies, having dance parties in the kitchen, or doing art projects together. This motherhood gig is a huge part of me and I love seeing how different motherhood looks for everyone! I can’t wait to learn about you and your family too as we sit and chat while you feed your baby during our session!
What do you say, wanna work together?
When my daughter was born in 2010, I didn't really know a lot about professional photos. I'm so sad that we missed the newborn phase with her. Of course, I have pictures we took ourselves but those first weeks went so quickly and all I have to remember them are a handful of poorly lit images and no photos of the three of us as a family outside of those few snapshots in the hospital.
When my boys were born, we made sure to get those family photos and those images of them at just a few days old. Those photographs are some of my favorites on the walls of my house and my kids love seeing themselves so tiny! I'm so glad I didn't let the guilt of making everything even for each kid hold me back from getting photos for our 2nd and 3rd babies.
