As a mom of two recently graduated highschoolers, I know it feels like yesterday that your baby was graduating kindergarten and now they’re getting ready to walk across that stage & grab their high school diploma..WHAT? HOW!?
And if you’re anything like me you are sitting there thinking..."where did the time go?" You blinked and now your baby is an amazing young adult about to leave the nest and spread their wings.
As parents, we are thinking about the amazing moments your senior is experiencing this year. And let’s get real..we may feel a little sadness because we know they are about to branch out on their own. I felt it too! And know this, if you need a momma who can understand - let’s me for coffee we can cry together!
And because I understand what you are feeling, , I promise to capture your senior with both you and your senior in mind. You both deserve an unforgettable experience that you can both love and enjoy together!

Kat is so talented! She was so amazing to work with and took her time to ensure we had so many different options to choose from. She even helped us with all the details...wardrobe planning, choosing jewelry, make up tips, etc. She made my daughter feel at ease right from the start. I highly recommend!
Best experience ever! Very friendly, made my daughter relax and have some fun. I appreciated her quick turn around time - very hard working to ensure all deadlines are met. Thank you!
Katrina has completely revolutionized my experience of senior pictures! Her kind and up beat personality is absolutely intoxicating ... and attention to detail ... simply amazing. She captured my daughter's personality and inner beauty in every pic. These portraits will be a cherished memento for years to come. (I have found the angel to document our family’s journey - as often as possible!)
We used Kat for my daughter’s senior photo shoot and it truly was an amazing experience. Kat is caring, understanding, flexible, professional, and a wonderful photographer (of course), and truly just a lovely person. Kat made my daughter feel important and special with every encounter. Kat took time and showed genuine personal care to ensure we were happy during the entire time. On the photography side of things, every one of her shots were amazing, we had the hardest time choosing our favorites. Would not hesitate to work with Kat again and welcome sharing our wonderful experience.
Katrina made my senior photo shoot the best! She had so many awesome ideas and locations for my pictures. They all turned out perfectly and was the highlight of my 2020 senior year. Fun personality and loved the way she edited the photos.
Katrina is our 'official' family photographer. She has done an amazing job with both of our daughters to capture the true essence of who they are for their senior photo shoots. The same was true when we had a family photo shoot at our house. Again, Katrina captured the essence of who we are as a family to help us preserve this time in our lives.
My family has relied on Katrina to capture our family's special moments for the last 10 years. Katrina captures all 6 of us as we truly are and that is such a gift! Katrina is professional and really makes an effort to know her subjects so she can bring out the best in the photos! We are so blessed to have her in our lives!
