Capturing Motherhood and The Moments it Creates

Hi, I'm Katie, but you can call me Kate.
I've been married to my husband Eric for over 10 years and we have 4 amazing children together. The military has been our life for the last 12 years, so you can imagine the places we have lived along the way. We're currently calling Oahu, Hawaii home.
It was also through the military that I met my best friend that introduced me to photography. I have been photographing people since 2016, and have since found my love for the journey of motherhood and capturing the moments it creates. There is no greater joy I have experienced than through my life as a mother, and it would be my absolute pleasure to capture you in yours, too. 



"My family and I were ecstatic to shoot with Kate. It had been something we were waiting to do when we had the perfect location, photographer and outfits. Everything had to feel and look right. And Kate did all that for us. From helping with locations to helping me pick which outfits were best, she went above and beyond to make sure I got what I envisioned.. Our photoshoot was effortless and she made it so easy and fun. I would book with her a 100 times over." 

"I have had a few sessions done here on island but Kate is hands down my favorite photographer here! She is kind and easy to work with, amazing to the kids, and she listens to what you like and don't like! Her style is absolutely amazing. I can't wait to work with her again in the future."

"When we moved to Oahu we instantly knew we NEEDED to capture this amazing season of our lives. A sweet, active one year old and the opportunity to live in such an awe inspiring place. I wanted a photographer that would "get us" and capture our family's easy going nature - white highlighting the beautiful nature that surrounds us. Kate was a dream. She was calm, happy, go-with-the-flow and her images captured this sweet season of life in the most heart filled light."

"We had maternity and family photos with our new baby done with Kate, and I have never loved pictures more. The tones and quality were everything that I could have dreamed of. I still can'r stop looking at them 3-4 months later! We will definitely be using Kate as our family photographer as long as we are both on this island! I'm forever grateful for her perfectly capturing the beauty that is this season of our lives."

"Our session with Kate was nothing short of perfect. Before our session, she was very quick and responsive to any questions I had. The day of our session felt effortless. She was so patient and kind with our toddler which made us feel so much more relaxed. Once we received our gallery I was absolutely speechless. Kate beautifully captured our family and the little moments you share while being together. I am beyond grateful for the gorgeous memories she was able to capture and will cherish them forever. Her work is absolutely stunning and we cannot wait to book another session!"

My greatest undoing, my brightest adventure -
all five senses sparking the music - sweeter than ever before.
The sun- a fragrance like dandelion.
The stars- like fire.
The sand- like clouds,
and the wine- like sweet solace.
Eyes walking asleep, and my mind: a slow song with an unexpected crescendo.
Nothing can prepare one for such a time as this. Let yourself undo Mumma, the sooner the sweeter -

-Tess Guinery
