Weddings!

Last year I started getting back into photography starting in April with a friends wedding. She called in a friend favor because her photographer backed out on her a month before the wedding. Talk about stressful! So I agreed and thus began the year of weddings. I was also asked to second shoot with my very very very good friend Angie (Angie English Photography). We have a BLAST shooting! It makes weddings even more fun! Here are a bunch of my favorite shots from 2012.

If this sounds at all interesting to you, please email katy.kdphotos@gmail.com. Tell me about yourself! I am looking for one boy and one girl from each school. It's first come, first served so act fast! :)


In honor of the supposed snow storm....

Back in January it snowed...a lot. I've always wanted to do a snow shoot. They always look so dreamy, and fun. Plus I super love the snow. But only in December and January.

You hear that weather? I'm done with the cold. Bring on summer please!

Anyway...I expressed my desire to do a senior shoot in the snow and Madison was the first person to respond. I've known Madison for a couple years now, she's the oldest of 6 (YES. 6) amazing kids. I seriously want to sit down with her parents and pick their brains. Every single kid is always so well behaved and courteous and friendly. For real...they're great kids.

I didn't really have any ideas on where I wanted to do the snow shoot...but Madison did; and I'm so glad she picked!! This place WAS AWESOME. I'm taking their family photos there in the spring/summer and I can't wait to see what it looks like green and lush!

P.s. Madison showed up in red denim and a gray polka dot sweater. Yup, girl after my own heart.

Hostetter Family

I literally grew up with Scott. I have known him my entire life (or as long as I can remember). He isn't technically family. Not in the biological sense anyway, but he (and the rest of the Hostetters) are just as much my family as my actual family. We refer to each other as cousins in fact. Because that's how it has always felt! Scott went on SO many family trips with us as kids too. I have also known Kim, his wife, for a long time too. In fact, I remember when they started dating and Kim and Scott took me and my brother out for ice cream. The whole family has been through a lot in the past few years. More than this family deserves, but they're strong and they're close and I love them!


Kim asked me back in December if I would take some breast feeding type of photos with her and their baby girl Avery. I had never done anything like that before (and hadn't really heard much about it)...so I googled (And she googled) ideas. Now, I can't show you the entire shoot...way too personal. I did catch some great shots of them hanging around the house. It basically turned into a lifestyle shoot. Lifestyle shoots are my JAM. I mean seriously...it's like paparazzi but not scary. You hang out, do what you normally do, and I just take your picture. :) We had so much fun laughing and goofing off. The breast feeding photos turned out simply beautiful, so I definitely encourage you to think about getting them done if you're on your last baby, or even if you aren't. :)
