It's easy to live life "zoomed in." We get busy living the details and forget to zoom out and see the larger picture. The daily grind can sometimes feel monotonous or exhausting or ordinary. But when we stop, take a breath, and look at what we are building, it can be truly magical.

Photos of these daily moments, the seemingly ordinary, can remind you that you’re getting it right. All the work you put into loving on your family is worth it. I have found that images can redeem the hard moments, showing you so much love, truth, and that you’re thriving together.

"Through Kate’s camera lens she captures the essence of a person. She spent a great deal of time hiking to just the right place with my 3 young children (and puppy) to ensure they were comfortable and captured in just the right photograph. Her artistic eye for detail gives her the ability to see color and natural light with astounding clarity. Her delightful portraits are only matched by her calm laid-back personality. She is so sweet and awesome to work with. She is an amazing professional I look forward to working with in the future." -Lisa

I include video in all of your sessions. These moments in time are irreplaceable, even a lazy Saturday morning (like the video above) will bring you to your knees in a few years as your kids grow and change.

I have been awarded the title of best portrait photographer in Colorado Springs by Expertise for six years in a row and am always so honored to get to photograph families from all over Colorado Springs and those who travel to the area.
