I'm Kate, a lifestyle photographer with ten years experience in natural light and studio photography. Capturing unforgettable moments with Families, Newborns, Maternity, Engagement, Seniors (and more) is truly one of the greatest joys in my life.
My style of photography is a little bit of a blend. I enjoy capturing the more traditional portraits, but the authentic moments that tell the story of your family are what truly have my heart. Genuine emotions, stunning backdrops and lots of laughter and fun are all incorporated into your session leaving you with beautiful images to decorate your home and treasure for generations.
Upon booking a session with me, you can count on two things:
Communication and Attention to detail.
I will be with you every step of the way to make sure that we not only make the most out of the time that we have together, but to ensure that I capture your top priority photos in the session.
All Sessions include unlimited, edited, high resolution images with full print/display release.
All sessions require a $50 non-refundable retainer to reserve your date and time. I understand things change and I will work my best to accommodate any changes.
I offer the option to bundle together sessions to save you money if you are wanting multiple sessions in the future. A discount of $50 will be applied off of your total session cost if you book two or more sessions together in advance. An example of this would be to combine Maternity + Fresh 48 or Newborn Sessions. The more you combine, the more you save!
I will travel *free* anywhere within 30 miles of Franklin, Indiana 46131. I will happily travel anywhere outside of the 30 miles, however, a small mileage fee will be added to the overall cost of the session.
*****I will be offering "Petite Mini" sessions a few times throughout the year. These sessions are 15 minutes in length and are at a location of my choosing. Examples of these sessions include: Sunflower field, Fall, Pumpkin patch and Christmas tree farm sessions. These sessions are $150 with a $50 non-refundable retainer fee to reserve your time. The Petite Mini sessions tend to book up very quickly, so if you are on the fence about booking one, I would do so before they are gone for that season. Petite Mini sessions include unlimited, edited, high resolution image with full print/display release. Also, please note that I will be advertising these sessions through social media as well, so don't forget to book before the dates fill up!
I am a proud mother of two and wife to my sweetie, Tom. I attended Herron School of Art and Design, where I fell in love with every aspect of the process of creating beautiful works of art, especially if it involves watercolor painting and photography. While in college, I worked in studio photography. My favorite part of that journey were the connections that I made over the years with so many families. How cool is it to capture the essence of a 2 day old newborn baby, watch them grow into playful toddlers, silly little boys and girls, and then independent young adults. It was heartwarming. The families that trusted me with capturing these once in a lifetime moments turned into friends, many of whom I still have relationships with today. I can’t wait to develop more relationships like that in the future, as it it an honor and priviledge to capture the moments that you will look back on and cherish for the rest of your lives.

"Kate is so patient with children, which is an absolute must when posing for family photos. My husband and I have a 17 month old who kept darting off during our session, yet Kate managed to get some of the absolute best pictures of him. We are obsessed with our images. We can't recommend Kate enough!"
-Kristin Graves (Graves Family - Family Lifestyle Session)
