've been a Birmingham portrait photographer (including maternity, newborn, motherhood, and family portraits) for over seven years. I have photographed family memories all over the southeast (from Birmingham, Florence, Huntsville, Auburn, and Tuscaloosa in Alabama to Nashville and Memphis in Tennessee).
Hi, I'm kate!
I pour my heart into everything I do. I am a wife, dog mom, photographer, beauty business owner, and friend. And I absolutely love serving others through my creative skills! I live in Hoover with my husband, Caleb, and two pups, but I'm willing to travel anywhere to capture your memories.
My photos are full of life and contrast mixed with a little bit of mood. I love making art out of the everyday, and I like sessions that are a little less-posed and a lot more genuine. I've learned a thing or two after capturing hundreds of clients as a Birmingham portrait photographer. I will be your guide through the entire session, your calming presence, and your comedic relief in the midst of chaos. I've learned to let the session happen, not to force anything, and am a pro at capturing amazing images when it feels a mess. And I am well-versed in working with the natural lighting in clients' homes.
All that to say, you're in the right place. I'm happy you're here and can't wait to hear from you!
with 7+ years' experience
eauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I enjoy nothing more than showing my clients the beauty in every moment.
My approach to your moments
I want you to remember it all - the simple, the extravagant, and everything in-between. And I want you to feel comfortable and to have a great time making these memories.
Look, I get it - being in front of a camera can be intimidating and feel awkward. I will be your guide and calming force during the session. Just follow my lead and you will get amazing images full of emotion. We will play games, and maybe even sing and dance. I will crack jokes, and might even play a song talking about these fleeting moments that will get you teary-eyed.
My goal is to allow you to see yourself and your family in the beautiful light you deserve. Trust me, you're in the right place.
y Birmingham portrait photography business started with family photo sessions, and I naturally fell into newborn photography as those families grew. I love capturing
the first moments of parenthood. Every session is unique because every story and home is uniquely yours. Being a newborn photographer naturally led to capturing the entire journey of motherhood and story of your family's life. From the pregnancy announcement to maternity photos to newborn and beyond, I've captured hundreds of clients.
I'm so excited you're here! Reach out to me today, and tell me more about you. and your family. I'd love to capture the beauty in your life.
Kate took my family newborn pictures when my youngest was born. I also had a 2-year-old at the time, which you can imagine made it much more complicated. Kate never got frustrated with the chaos and never made me feel rushed when the photoshoot took longer than expected due to nursing breaks, diaper changes, and the nature of a "terrible twos" toddler. The pictures that Kate took were incredible. She captured all of our personalities perfectly and I will treasure these pictures forever. In addition to the amazing photos, Kate is an absolute JOY to be around, and you will feel so loved the entire time.
"Kate is an absolute JOY to be around"
We’ve had multiple photography sessions with Kate and they’ve all been fabulous! Each time we have so much fun with her and each other getting the photos taken and then receiving the final photos is even more fun!! She has a sweet soul and a deeply caring heart that she clearly pours into all her of work. Her editing style is also very beautiful. I can’t wait to hire her again!

Kate was amazing! She was laid back and patient taking pictures of our family (newborn and toddler). The shots were exactly what I wanted and I could not believe how she got so many pictures that looked perfect when there was a toddler tantrum happening. She perfectly captured what season our family is in right now.
