Hi, my name is Kate. Recently, I became a mom. Woo hoo, right? With this fantastic new development in my life, came a drastic realization that getting my family out the door, looking their best, fed, not needing a nap, in a good mood and ON TIME was realistically impossible unless you are one of those incredible super moms that I admire from a distance and not-so-secretly envy with every fibre of my being.
With this realization, came the awareness that getting photos taken was something that stressed me out, not something I looked forward to. So when it came time for me to look like someone I would want people to see on social media, I look exhausted and drained. Every woman on the planet knows what I am talking about. Even if you don't have kids, you know what I am talking about. Those insecurities about everything from our toe nail colour to the length of our eyelashes.
That's why I want to take your pictures. That's why I am a photographer. I'm the mom who knows exactly what it takes to get out the door on time, looking like you weren't just hit with the mack truck that is your toddler. Or like you didn't just have to plan your significant other's entire wardrobe for the day. Don't lie, guys, you know you make your women do that.
I want you to want to get your photos taken, and I want you to feel like they are something to treasure when we're done. Not because you look like someone you aren't, but because you look like the hero you are. The confident, beautiful, amazing person you are. Let's have fun. Let's let the kids get dirty, messy and run around screaming, and let me try and get that perfect photo, and even if it isn't perfect, at least it's a picture of the kids doing what they do best. Being kids. Let's get that candid photo of you and you fiance/husband/wife/partner laughing so hard your sides are splitting, because that's why you decided they were for you.
I work anywhere from Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Oakville and Burlington. If you live in Mississauga, give me a call and we can talk about me coming to you too. I look forward to meeting anyone and everyone who want to finally ENJOY getting their photos taken. I specialize in maternity, engagement, and family photography.
