Your business is your heart and soul

and you need a brAND THAT REFLECTS THE CARE, PASSION, and hard work you put into it. 

As small business owners, we know you can have the best product or service in the world, but if your clients don't connect with you or your brand, they'll never get to experience your extraordinary talents. 

I can fix that.

-Stand out from others in your market
-Connect with your ideal client
-Make a lasting impression
-Create trust between you and your audience
-Look like the best version of yourself

Great branding photography will help you...

it's time to stand out, connect, and make a lasting impression.

You'll End up with

-Personalized, high quality, and beautiful visuals for your website, marketing emails, and social content
-More time! Plan this shoot once and use the content all throughout the year. 

I'll make it feel like a breeze. 

Of course, the shoot is my favorite part of the process of working together, but I also love learning about your business and taking the time to creatively collaborate so I can create photos that are the most genuine reflection of who you are and what you value. 

I'm so ready to work with you. 

1. Words for Creative Direction
We'll choose guiding words for how you want your photos to feel and look. For example, do you want to be seen as bold and powerful, or gentle and approachable? Do you want your brand to be timeless and elegant or on-trend and cutting edge?
2. Location Planning & Wardrobe Styling
We will plan your different outfits together and if you do not have a physical location for your business, I am happy to coordinate a studio rental. 
3. Scope of Your Project
We will work together to create a shot list for your session, this ensures we will have time to capture all the services, portraits, people, and details that are most important to you! 

there are 3 components to every project. 

nervous about being in front of the camera?

If I had a dollar for every time someone started their session with, "no offense, I just hate this" and ended it with,  "that was so much easier than I expected", well I would have many dollars. You don't have to know exactly how to pose or what to do. I am a great director and am more than willing to tell you exactly what to do. You'll end up looking like the best version of yourself and your business will shine.

I'll let you in on a little secret...very few people actually like having their photos taken.

It’s important to let go of expectations and trust me. 

This is a collaboration! You know your business and its strengths and I know how to get the photos you want.

are you wondering...

I have 3 different options for you depending on what your business needs. Get in touch with me to find out if the CEO, Small Business, or Personal Branding session is the right fit for you. 
Each option includes at least 1 hour of photography and a gallery of images.

what my clients are saying

"Kate did such an amazing job capturing photos of my small business up in Bellingham. She was so great at really showcasing the feel of my spa. We had so much fun laughing and working together. She gave me great direction, was very easy to work with, and had wonderful communication leading up to our shoot. 10/10 would recommend her for an small business photography, wedding photography , headshots or anything you need captured!"

My fiancé and I worked with Kate for our engagement pictures and couldn’t be happier. We were both hesitant to do engagement pictures but Kate made it so easy. Communication and setting up a time and location were a breeze. She suggested we pick locations that were meaningful to us. We went with two of our favorite spots in our neighborhood (Ballard locks and the Farmers’s Market) with the hopes of capturing some of the gorgeous fall colors and all the water in the area. Kate heard us and delivered!

I’ve taken a dozen 16 year olds to the Alps AND brought all of them home. I’ve navigated the Madrid, Paris, London, Barcelona, and Rome subway systems with teenagers in tow. 

I’ve caught a bride when she fainted on her wedding day. I worked my way through Tokyo, alone, without a phone and no Japanese skills to speak of. I’m a problem solving maverick.

If this sounds like your cup of tea (or brand of vodka), you and i should definitely talk. 

overall, I specialize in chaos management.
