I'm Kate. It's my job to freeze moments for moms and dads so you can look back and see your child, so you can be taken back to that fleeting time and remember their little expressions and personality. It's my job to capture the connection between families so that your child can look at your images later on and see just how loved they are.
I still find myself looking back at my son's newborn pictures from three years ago. It was such a whirlwind of a time with long days and not enough sleep but yet he's grown up before I know it. I cherish those images now because I can take the time to remember how little he was and see every detail of his sweet face. He still has the same smile, just a little bigger now.
I've been voted one of the best newborn photographers in Lincoln for the last 6 years. Newborns are my speciality and where my heart is. When you arrive for your session, you'll see my studio reflects that. I have an endless collection of props, swaddles, headbands, hats and custom accessories. The poses and wraps I do are all in reaction to the cues your little one gives me. The safety of your baby is number one, I am trained in newborn safety and will always be sure your baby is happy and calm before going into a pose.
I first came to Lincoln for college (UNL) and before I switched my major to photography I studied fashion design. I still love to create custom pieces for my studio and knit and sew in my freetime! I love handwritten notes, thoughtful gifts and going the extra mile to brighten someone's day. I tend to spoil my clients!
I also offer maternity, first year, and family photography. My family photography style is candid and full of genuine moments, snuggles and laughs. I will give your family light prompts to capture your connection. Expect to laugh, play, and love on your little ones!
Outside of photography, I love traveling, camping, and being with my family. I married my high school sweetheart, Dustin, in 2011. We grew up in a small town in central Nebraska and moved to Lincoln for college. We had our son Wyatt in March 2019 and he has brought us so much joy! Wyatt has taken my appreciation of photography to a whole new level. Kids grow too fast and I can now relate just how precious freezing these moments are.
