Oh hey, mama.

You’ve created the family you used to dream about, and you love every messy, snuggle-filled, fleeting second of it.

Now? You need a girl, camera in hand, to come alongside ya to capture and document those moments, so you can tell your family’s story for generations to come.

My name is Kate, and I’m an energetic family photographer based in Boston. Since 2008, serving mamas like you has been right up my alley! I help my clients press pause on the endless BUSY, and make moments that matter.

I’m here to give you more than a new Facebook profile picture (although you’ll be proud of that, too!). I’m here to show you the significance of all of your diaper changing, chauffeuring, and lunch-packing. I’m here to show you that as a mom, you matter to your kids. I’m here to show you the beauty that’s inherent in motherhood when you’re too tired to see it on your own. I’m here to give you happy family memories that will help make the tough days a little sweeter.

I’m proud to say that I was voted “Best Children’s Photographer” in the 2016 Boston A-List, have received 4 awards from the National Association of Professional Child Photographers, and have been published by Yahoo! The achievement that means the most to me? Building lifelong relationships with my clients as their families grow and change.

Born and raised in Texas, I now call myself a Bostonian, having survived five frosty winters! When I’m not behind my camera, I perform as a conservatory-trained flutist with several orchestras, and I love browsing the aisles of Target for colorful things I probably don’t need.

I believe life is better in color. I believe that my clients deserve an experience as memorable as their images. I believe great photography should make you smile, cry, or do both at the same time. I believe that mamas should always jump in the picture — not just for themselves, but for their children.

my shooting style

One time I asked my clients to sum up my style of photography, and I think they nailed it: colorful, warm, candid, in motion, bathed in sunshine.

I seek out genuine moments that evoke FEELING. Whether that’s your newborn daughter’s hand brushing up against your cheek, or your 3-year-old son tackling his dad, I’ll be ready with the world’s faster shutter finger.

I also know that the best moments sometimes need a little encouraging, so I’ll help you get into place, then turn your focus to each other. Think tickling, jumping, snuggling…these active words allow you to be present, love your family, and truly see one another.
