Life is full of special moments. My passion is to capture them.
I'm Kat - a Michigan native that's been in love with photography for most of her life. A bit about me...I sing in my car every day. Mexican and Chinese are my go to's. I love thrifting and crafting. I'm a huge animal lover. I'm a part of cool Facebook groups like Dogspotting and This Cat is Chonky. I have a wonderful husband, Spenser, and we enjoy road tripping & camping together. We recently had our sweet baby girl, Josie Renee, in October of 2022. I'm also a dog mom to a spunky 3 yr old Rottie named Ruby. Shameless plug, Ruby's IG is @RubyDooRottie.
Getting creative and thinking outside of the box is my jam. I want the images that I deliver to bring joy to your heart and make you smile.
I enjoy getting to know my clients so that we can have fun & laugh together. When you're comfortable your expressions will be genuine and the photos won't look forced. My past clients can attest, I will do absolutely anything for the perfect shot! I'll lay on the ground, hop up on stools, and crawl around to capture the best angles!
I love LOVE, so naturally I adore engagement sessions. I give silly prompts so you don't feel too posed. My approach is go with the flow and have fun with it. I aim to make my couples feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
Maternity and newborn portraits have a sweet spot in my heart too. I fell in love with this style of portraits when I was a social worker at a shelter for expectant mothers. I was blessed to get a lot of experience because of my amazing clients that trusted me to document their pregnancies and capture their babies first moments. The little hands, small feet, the first smiles, and feedings.. I can't help but to smile so big behind the camera for it all!
Senior portraits are also one of the most fun parts of my job! For someone that lives to be creative, I just love all the outfits, accessories, and locations! My senior clients can truly expect an unforgettable experience with me, one that really is about much more than just a few snaps for your yearbook. To me, it's important that we showcase your personality. I get it.. I was a senior once too! You want to feel confident and have images that stand out. That's what I'm here for! Consider me your personal hype girl. Your ideas, whatever they may be, are important to me. Whether it's a bigger than life prop or being photographed in your favorite place, let's make that happen!
Ultimately, I aim to build a long lasting relationship with my clients so that we can work together for all the big milestones that lie ahead. Once you become a client, I am there through every step of the process. From choosing locations and outfits, to helping you decide which images to print, where it'll go in your home, and how big! I love it all.
If you want a custom portrait experience that you'll never forget, you've come to the right place!
