Katie Who?

Katie Me! ¬†ūüėČ ¬†Hi!! ¬†So who am I? ¬†I’m sooo many things on any given day it can be hard to nail that down sometimes. ¬† Fun Mom. ¬†Strict Mom. ¬†Artist. ¬†Sister. ¬†Impromptu Nurse for a bazillion different bo-bo’s. ¬†Photographer. ¬†Teacher. Wife. ¬†Best Friend. ¬†But never in the same order. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Best of all I’m someone who loves to really look at the world. ¬†To see the true straight-out amazing beauty in our everyday lives.¬† Because it’s always there – we just have to look.¬† Sometimes our lives are messy, the kids are crazy and we wouldn’t change a thing – so why not capture that crazy fun that is our lives?

The way I see it everyone is beautiful when they are truly themselves. ¬†So I aim to try to catch those moments in my photography by standing back. ¬†Hanging out with you for a moment. ¬†Get a feel for where we are and where you are at the moment. ¬†Then I make sure the light is good, and away we go. ¬†I do not pose. ¬†Seriously. ¬†Don’t panic – deep breath. ¬†ūüėČ ¬†I may ask for some silly things – fake laughter, skipping, snuggling waaaay closer than ever before in public – but for the most part I’m looking for your reaction to my requests. ¬†In those candid moments you find the truthful grace that is you. ¬†ūüôā¬† If your family plays board games, does soccer, has tea parties consider bringing along one of those items and we’ll play a game!

So have a look around. ¬†See what you see. ¬†If you have questions, ask away. ¬†Call. ¬†Email. ¬†Shout super loud. ¬†Whatever works best for you. ¬†Except the shouting. ¬†That’s probably not the best. ¬†ūüėČ
