I’m Katherine

As a mom of 3 boys that grow too fast, I know how important it is to document the moments when they’re little. It’s so important to me to be the one that takes care of everything for you, from providing the wardrobe to getting those precious memories framed and on your wall to remind you that the days may be long, but the years are far too short.

Frequently Asked Questions

My style is simple and timeless, with a focus on the details you want to remember forever and the unique connection between your family.

Most sessions take place at my full-service studio in South Austin. I occasionally travel to clients’ homes for newborn sessions upon request.

I have found that newborn sessions are the most successful around 2 weeks of age, when you’ve had time to figure out feedings and your body has had time to heal. However, I have extensive experience with newborns up to 6 weeks of age. I recommend scheduling your newborn session while you’re still pregnant to make ensure I have room in my schedule.

Maternity sessions are best done between 28-32 weeks of pregnancy, after your bump has popped but before the discomfort of the third trimester kicks in. Sessions should be scheduled in advance to ensure availability.

I have more answers! Send me an email and we’ll chat.
