Hello! My name is Kate, and I'm here to introduce y'all to my new blog.

I wanted to start off by telling you about myself. I'm a photographer specializing in lifestyle photography. Not sure what that is? Think documentary-type photography. Lots of movement and emotion — not so much of posing and fake smiles. My goal is to document this special time in your life, however that may look. I received my degree in Photojournalism from Mizzou, so a lot of what I learned there has translated to my business. My goal is to photography authentically and truthfully.

I grew up on a farm in the Midwest, so I love to incorporate God's beautiful creation into the photo. That being said, I have a couple of studios set up in my home in Mendon, IL for crazy weather and family sessions with newborns.

Things that I'm obsessed with include my pittie Piper, my mini jungle, slow rural living, coffee, and family and friends. They are often over photographed in my little world, but you know what they say, just look at a photographer's subjects and you will find what she loves most in life.

I'm excited to work with you to photograph your dream shoot! I'm always up for new ideas and trying new setups and locations. Shoot me a message and let's make some magic!
