Joy comes to us in the ordinary moments.

- Brené Brown

I’m Kate, a childhood and family photographer...

Artful Wonder is how I describe the art of delighting in everyday beauty and capturing it forever.

Without props, without pretense, even without leaving your home, together we can capture your family. In a every tender gesture, iconic goofy face, or family tradition there are moments worth holding on to. 

I am passionate about working with families who are delighted by everyday magic and believe that extraordinary lives are built in ordinary moments.

Mini Sessions – 30 minutes or Less

Because my passion is for recording memories and milestones, I want my pricing to remain as flexible as possible for my families. If it’s a first hair-cut, homecoming, prom, a surprise engagement, getting a first pet – any opportunity for family memory recording that doesn’t fall within the scale of a standard session – this is the price-point for you.

Standard Sessions

Forget everything you think you know about photo sessions. Sessions are encouraged to be personalized with special locations (e.g. home, grandma’s house, the park) or activities that are important to you (e.g. Birthday’s, baking cookies, picking pumpkins.)  Let’s work together to capture beautiful memories perfect for sharing on your walls as well as in your heirloom albums.

Birth Photography

Capturing those precious moments leading up to and including the delivery of your little bundle of joy. I will spend time with the newborn and family following birth in the manner of a Fresh 48 Session in order to capture some of your very first family portraits.

* Due to the spontaneous nature of childbirth, only 2 births per month may be scheduled to reduce scheduling conflicts. Reserve your spot now!

She really knows how to capture those special moment, as simple as kissing your husband to be or walking and playing with your daughter. She gets to know you and what you want from your special moments. AND she is so patient. My daughter just turned 1 and she takes the time to get those smiles. She is so good at what she does. If anybody wants pics of their special moments I would recommend her 100 times 😉 Megan H.

Kate was fantastic and took a huge weight off my shoulders. Knowing that she was working diligently to capture everything, I was able to relax and enjoy the moment. The images I received were PERFECT. They’re still some of my favorite pictures to this day… I highly recommend Kate for any event or milestone that you want to remember and cherish for years to come.

Unsure of where to start?

Let’s chat about your family and how I can help you to preserve those precious moments you care about the most. Questioning the candid session approach? These sessions are made for the sentimental – the ones who want to look back fondly through the family photos. If that’s you, you have nothing to fear.

Defining Moments

Photographs are everywhere. Almost everyone carries a camera in their pocket these days, but we rarely slow down to think about why we want pictures all the time. Given the convenience of the cell phone, we often will snap pictures without even thinking about why -...
