I'M KATE

I'm a professional photographer of 15 years, makeup artist, curling iron badass, single mom to my favorite 10 yr old redheaded boy, encourager to women and seeker of beauty and joy in all things. I believe I exist to love God and love people and although I'm human and fail sometimes, my mission is to bring light to everyone I meet. 

 

My goal in life is to help empower women who struggle with self esteem and self worth. I want women to know that they have so much to offer this world. We are all beautifully and wonderfully made and each of us has a unique purpose. I used to be really lost, self defeated and believed I had nothing to offer in life. I felt no self worth but through hope & the healing power of Jesus my life has been changed radically. It's been a wild journey!  

Besides photography and makeup artistry I am a singer, worshipper and have taken up running and working out and converting my SUV into a camper to go on adventures in. 

 

I'm a Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter Nerd and grew up playing video games with my 3 brothers. I'm a self proclaimed glam nerd I guess you could say. Although nerdy I would spend hours reading magazines, studying makeup and fashion and cutting out all the pages in the magazines to make collages when I was a teenager. I loved the clothes, the posing and all the photos that seemed like they would transport you to another time and place. I never lost that love and in my 20's I started my career doing what I loved by taking photos. I'm now 37 and I'm so glad I never stopped. I truly love my job and getting to make my clients look and feel fantastic.
