New England wedding 
+ FAMILY photography

Behind the Lens


A lifelong New Englander. Lover of historical places, creating artful photo treasures, iced lattes and my fur kids!

❀ fur momma + animal foster
❀ lover of light + flea markets
❀ museum wanderer
❀ sipper of iced lattes + margs

From love stories just beginning to expanding families and all the life celebrations between -- I am so grateful to use my art + skills to honor the love, joy and connection in my client's lives through photographs.

I want folks to feel relaxed, excited and enjoy the overall photo experience to the fullest when working with me! I'm passionate about creating sessions with my clients that reflect their journey, joys, special places or activities. I've photographed engagements in breweries for beer lovers, maternity sessions where couples shared their wedding vows, backyard family sessions with the pups, newborn sessions of little ones in beloved heirlooms -- oh, I could go on for days! There is nothing I love more than making beautiful images that truly speak to your individual story and love!

I'm kate!

about the artist

I have two dogs, nine cats and typically have a fur foster of some sort! My answer is always a resounding YES if you want to include your fur kiddos in your session or wedding!

my fur kids

The smell of lilacs, forests filled with moss + ferns, floating on the water, first + last light of each day, thunderstorms & Maine's fall foliage colors.

Slow days, embroidery, being lakeside and renovating my 1798 home in the hills of western Maine



Gifford's ice cream, Grey's Anatomy + Harry Potter, fresh flowers and yard sales

Saint-Chapelle in Paris, the Boboli Gardens in Florence and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

I'm an organized creative with a zest for beauty! This job allows me to use all my skills and most importantly, connect me with the incredible clients and fellow vendors I work with.

my favorite things:

about you

Does this sound like you?
let's connect!

My clients want to have the time of their lives with the ones they love the most - and leave the art to me! 

Are you looking for a photographer who will make you feel like a rockstar in front of the camera, even if you believe you're hella awkward or nervous?

Are you looking for a photographer that will go all in on your day? The kind that will stand on a stonewall, jump on a boat or lay in the snow if it means we nail an epic shot?

Are you looking for a photographer that is warm, artistic, experienced and will love meeting and working with your crew?


Join along for more of my latest work, photo journeys, travels, fur kids and other surprises that inspire me daily!
