Session at golden hour
I swear, the little guys that bring the most energy to the shoot and keep me on my toes the most, make for some of the best shots.
We're going to follow your kid's lead to capture ALL the shots. Everyone smiling at the camera, interacting and having fun, and all the candid in-between moments.
These moments are flying by just as fast, even when your kids are well past the baby and toddler stage.
Make it a priority to do keep documenting your love and laughter as personalities and relationships evolve.
Laughter, tears-we're gonna capture it all
As a fellow Mama counting down the minutes til bedtime on the reg, I get it. That annoying quote that makes you want to scream and cry all at the same time - "The days are long, but the years are short." Yeah, it's true. Your little people are turning into not so little people with each passing day. And so often those days are so exhausting, it's impossible to savor and appreciate these moments that make up our lives as they are happening.
We're going to make some magic during your family session. I'm going to show you what I see when I look at your family. Because looking through my lens, I only see real raw love, the rockstar parents that you are, and your littles that will never look at you quite the same way again. I'll get you that classic shot with everyone smiling at the camera. But most importantly, I'm going to document the fun you have as a family, your connection, and all those little unseen moments. I'm going to curate all those images and then package them up to present to you in all their glory. Now you get to appreciate those moments for a lifetime. Put 'em on the wall-you're going to need those reminders on the hardest of days.
YOU'RE GOING TO MISS THESE DAYS....
Let's keep this whole thing easy, yeah?
Fill out the short contact form on my website and send it on over. I make it a goal to get back to you in one business day.
We'll schedule a brief phone call to spend a few moments getting to know each other better. I find this phone call make things all the more comfortable the day of the shoot.
I'll walk you through my process, which is purposely streamlined to be as simple as possible. I'll answer any questions or concerns. And of course, we'll get into the nitty gritty details of pricing.
1. Say Hello
You're ready to move forward-let's do this thing!
After our initial phone call, I email a Pricing Guide that includes the proposal to make things official. Review the guide, sign the contract, and pay the nonrefundable Session Fee. It's easy peasy-all online with just a few clicks.
Your session is now secured on my calendar!
2. Sign on the dotted line
Next up after completing this proposal, I'm going to send you my oh so helpful Session Prep Guide. It's made to take all the guesswork out of this process. The guide answers FAQ's and tells you what to do to prepare. Don't worry, you don't have to do much. It also gives some helpful advice on picking out what to wear-one of the most stressful parts of any photo session. I've been there, I get it!
Now to REALLY take the wardrobe selection process up a notch, all client's have access to a Personalized Styling Service. Fill out a brief questionnaire about who you are dressing, your style, and your preferred color palettes and get specific coordinated outfit suggestions (with links to actual items!) for each member of your family. Not wanting to buy new clothes? Use the suggestions as inspiration to shop your closet. BOOM.
The day has come! We meet at the agreed upon location-usually your home or a fabulous outdoor spot.
We've already chatted on the phone, so we kinda feel like good friends already.
I'll come prepared with plenty of prompts and shot ideas that will be oh so flattering. If you've got kiddos participating in the session, I have all sorts of tricks up my sleeve to make it fun and engaging for them and to capture your family's raw love and connection.
You get to just relax and enjoy yourself. No stressing about your kiddos-I've seen it all. Your job is to just keep smiling and love on your family.
4. let's shoot!
2-3 weeks after the session, I'll send over a your fully edited gallery slideshow for you to "ohh and ahhh" over. Prepare for some emotional moments!!
Now that you've fallen in love with your images, you have 24 hours to decide which Collection to purchase. Don't stress though-you're just choosing the Collection level immediately. You have 1 month to select the individual images you'll keep forever as part of that Collection and deciding how you'll spend your print credit. Remember-all Collections come with a certain number of digital images and a particular $ amount print credit.
Now get that artwork up on your walls and that album on your coffee table to enjoy! We're not going to let your investment languish unseen in the digital void!

We'll talk full pricing details on our brief introductory phone call. Just after the call I'll send over my Pricing Guide. I won't leave you hanging right now though!
Working with Kate was fun, easy, and resulted in family photos that we will cherish forever! She couldn’t have made the shoot more comfortable, giving us friendly instruction on a few formal poses and encouraging our family to be ourselves. The kids had a blast and I could not believe all of the great shots Kate managed to capture considering all of the running and goofing around our 2 and 4 year olds were doing! I was amazed by her efficiency; her knowledge of light and location allowed us to shoot in several locations in a short window of time. The result was a group of beautiful, candid, and high quality photos that captured the warmth and glow of our family’s togetherness. Kate is a joy to work with and we look forward to more family photo shoots with her in the future!

Oh my gosh, I am absolutely speechless. These photos are INCREDIBLE and Kate has such a gift- an eye for detail and lighting and emotion. I sincerely cannot thank her enough for capturing this emotional transition. I will be over here in tears looking through these stunning images.

Kate has an incredible talent, not only in the quality of her photography, but it starts from the beginning with her kind demeanor, helpful prep guidance, and putting you at ease as soon as you meet her. She made us feel comfortable from the start and we enjoyed the entire experience while having fun as a family. She is patient, full of suggestions and ideas, understands all kinds of lighting and worked her magic with lifestyle photography. We were familiar with her work and yet she always amazes us with the variety and quality of her work providing us with an extensive gallery that it makes it hard to choose favorites when we love them all! Thank you, Kate, for sharing your talent with us!
