On a more personal note, I am a desert dwelling mama to THREE little ones 5 and under and wife to my high-school sweetheart, Mark. We got married as crazy teenagers and our wedding looked MUCH different than the ones I shoot: Courthouse, dress from a prom boutique, my mom made our cake from a $2 Betty Crocker mix and my photos came from a disposable camera and a Nikon Coolpix. But you know what? I LOVE them and my passion for photography is rooted deeply from that day.
When I'm not wrangling my wild kids, you can find me roaming the aisles of Target or outside hiking, fishing, & snowboarding. I have seen all seasons of 'The Office' 8 times and I make a mean margarita. Orcas are my favorite animal and my ennegram is 6w7.
I want to get to know all my clients on a more personal level; hear your stories and capture the realness of you and your relationships. My number one goal is to make you feel comfortable + beautiful in front of my lense and give you photos that don't look like anyone elses.
Hey, I'm Kate! Professional third wheel and MVP at your wedding! I enjoy long walks with my couples + my Canon in the gorgeous PNW landscapes and editing in my home for hours to Led Zeppelin.
