Kind Words

She gave us the most beautiful memories of the best days of our lives !

To describe Katie in two words, she's THE BEST. She created the most gorgeous setting for our engagement when my fiance reached out to her in a pinch. She gave us the most beautiful memories of the best days of our lives to date. Our joy couldn't have been captured more perfectly from the minute we walked up to the picnic to the moment we popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate. She also made the trip into Chicago, scouted locations, and directed the most amazing engagement shoot for us. Not only is every penny spent well worth it, but Katie is the most fun to work with. She's kind, warm, and so funny. 20/10 recommend working with Katie.

Katie was an absolute pleasure! 

Katie was an absolute pleasure! We showed up stressed out, with a super cranky and unwilling 4 year old on our hands, and Katie just smiled through it all. She encouraged all of us to just enjoy and do the best we could. Katie captured a number of amazing shots in just 20 minutes and we are so happy!

Katie is as kind as she is talented. 

Highly recommend! Katie is as kind as she is talented. She truly cares about the people she's photographing. The day of our family photo shoot ended up being a windy and chilly day at the lake. Katie was so flexible. She offered to either reschedule or continue through the weather (she's a mom too and knows the effort it takes to get small children ready to go anywhere). We decided to do it that day because my 2 and 4 year old were in good spirits. They were just happy to be at the beach! Katie got the most precious photos of my kids just being themselves. These are moments we will cherish forever. We are so thankful, and look forward to future family photo shoots with her!

Katie was magic when it came to taking pictures 

Katie was magic when it came to taking pictures of my 2 and 4 year olds. They listened and followed all of her directions (no easy feat) and now we have the more gorgeous photos that our family will forever treasure. She was very kind from the start and we all felt very comfortable in front of the camera thanks to her. She also was a huge help with preparing outfits and props for the photos. I would have had no idea what to do without her guidance.

Getting photos done with Katie is an investment that you certainly will not regret.

My kids were captured beautifully with amazing candid & posed shots.

Such a great experience! My kids were captured beautifully with amazing candid & posed shots. They had fun too. :) Loved the variety of framing & styles to choose from. The creative talent of the photographer truly shines through and I now have photos of my children that are pieces of art! Definitely recommended.
