No matter where you're at in life, whether you just had your first baby  or your babies are all grown up, you deserve to have your family captured in a bigger way than with a phone.

I love to create photos that remind my families of their love and their story, despite the craziness of our hectic everyday lives. Sometimes life gets messy, and it's nice to get a little dressed up and just focus on YOU and the connection with your family.

So let's pick out a date and a favorite location, and we'll create a bunch of images that will fill up the frames on your walls for years to come.

Newborns and Portraits

Feel free to email me at katie@katielouisephotography.com or use the contact form through the website to let me know what kind of session you'd like and when you are thinking about booking your session. I always respond within 24-48 hours.

Prep for Your Shoot

Once we decide on a date, we'll move forward with finding the perfect spot. Outside sessions are always booked 2 hours before sunset for the prettiest lighting. If you need a studio session for something like a cake smash, any time of day works between 9am and 4pm to accommodate your little one's napping schedule. Newborn sessions always take place at the studio or the client's home and begin in the morning.

the Big Day

The day of your session, you'll pay the sitting fee for your particular session. If booking a newborn session, a deposit is required in advance to save a date on the calendar, and no other payment will be due the day of the session. The sitting fee and deposit are separate fees from the collection you will choose once you pick your favorite images.

Get ready to have fun! Pictures shouldn't be a chore, and I try to make the session super easy while being efficient so we don't wear out the littles. I also try to go with the flow. If your little just isn't feeling it, we'll concentrate on candids, and having you interact with each other as if I'm not there. We'll get cute pictures no matter what!


the day has arrived and it's time to get those amazing photos you've been dreaming of!

Gallery Delivery

Light edits are delivered through an online gallery 1-2 days after your session. You'll create a favorites list based off which collection you decide to go with.  

There are multiple collections that offer digital images alone or including products like folio boxes or fine art albums. You'll be given the pricing guide for your particular session when you book so you have time to think about what you would like.

Once you make your final choice and pay for your collection, you'll receive your gallery within 5-7 days.

I know you are dying to see those photos, and it'll be worth the wait!

Print Ordering

There's a huge difference between looking at pictures on your phone and holding them in your hands.

Each gallery gives you access to an online store where you can order prints and wall art, but many collections include products like my favorite- the linen folio box. Sometimes it's hard to know what you might like or how big you'll need something to be. I always offer a free meeting where I can help you with this, so you're not figuring it out alone! I also offer beautiful linen folio boxes that come with a few collections, as well as fine art albums, that will are awesome to have as keepsakes.

I got you, mama!

Family Session

The sitting fee is due at the time of the session. But newborn sessions require a deposit to be paid in advance. This fee covers the time and experience of the photographer, as well as use of studio, travel to location, use of props and gear.

This is a separate fee from any of the collections, and it does not include digital images, prints or products.

Maternity sessions should be scheduled for the end of the second trimester, beginning of your third. You want to be showing, but also feeling great. If it's your first pregnancy, and you haven't started to show by then, we can wait a little further into your third trimester.

You'll want to book your newborn session during this time, as well. This ensures a date on the calendar is reserved, whether you end up being on time, early or late. It also gives us plenty of prep time to talk about your session!

The only mini session offered year round is the CAKE SMASH MINI. 

All other minis are random and only happen a few times a year, but you can definitely count on them during fall and around the holidays. Leave your email to stay up to date with all specials or follow me on Facebook for promotions.

At this time, all sessions include a print release. This means you can download the images from your chosen collection and print them wherever you'd like!

Your gallery also offers print and product ordering as a convenience and for great quality.
