turning moments into memories that will last forever

From bump to baby-
 if you're looking for the very best in maternity & newborn photography, look no further

say hello!

I am a momma to 4 amazing munchkins and wife to a pretty awesome guy 😉Before we met and the Navy took us to California, I was a firefighter/paramedic. I love exploring new places, music (especially 90s grunge hits) and will never say no to wine or coffee! I am an introverted extrovert, fully dependent on coffee at this point in my life, and believe that if a dessert isn't chocolate, it's not a dessert. 

My clients have always loved their galleries. Each session, I hand pick and coordinate setups and designs that will be unique and timeless. I coordinate my ideas and imagination based off of your preferences, guaranteeing that you love every single aspect of your gallery. More than that, when it comes to your newborn session, my medical background sets me apart. When you hire a newborn photographer, you are trusting that person to handle the most precious thing in your world! With every session, every wrap, every pose, I bring years of experience and knowledge.

The Fun Doesn't Stop There!

My babies!

Cue the mushy stuff! I met Jeremy in Las Vegas when I was living in Tampa, FL and he was stationed in Lemoore, CA. I never believed in love at first sight, until I met this guy. In 48 hours, I just knew. Something just clicked and we both knew that this was it for us! 

From traveling, to lazy days at home, he is my person! We have 3 beautiful daughters together and 1 pretty incredible son. I'm so excited to see where life will take us in the future, but as long as we're together, everything will be awesome.

My Favorite Things

Let me just start by saying that Kat is such an amazing person and if you need a photographer, you would be crazy not to hire her. 

Kat went above and beyond for my maternity shoot, including traveling to a different state! She is extremely professional, yet will make sure you're comfortable and will leave you wanting more when it's over. The passion Kat has for photography just radiates from her, and she definitely knows what she's doing. She constantly was looking for the best shots, even if it meant getting into uncomfortable places herself, and she nailed every single one.

Absolutely amazing. I am so glad I chose for her to do my maternity and newborn photos. Kat made sure we were happy and comfortable with everything she did. She definitely is a great confident boost when feeling so vulnerable during photos with all her compliments.

It was so easy to trust her with our son. She made us feel so comfortable. She was patient and understanding when we had to take a break. We so appreciate the time she takes and the attention to detail she has. 11/10 would recommend!!
