Is the idea of taking your own newborn photos like picturing yourself on an episode of Nailed It: Photography Edition? It doesn't have to be that way! And in fact, it shouldn't. You can absolutely take beautiful photos of your new baby and growing family with an iPhone or mobile phone! These photos are part of your legacy and I'm here to help.
As a mom of two little ones myself (5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter), I know EXACTLY how important it is to capture these moments. I've been there and I'm ready to guide you along the way!
Welcome to Newborn Photo Camp for Parents.
Ready to rock your newborn photos?
It can be so overwhelming to try and take your own photos
Here you are
going to state the challenges and frustrations
What light works best for the hospital? What works best for when you're at home? How do I know what to do with my camera or phone to take great photos?
What circumstances might prevent you from having a photographer for your newborn photos? If your labor moves quickly, will there be anyone to take great pictures?
What kind of props do you need? How do you take photos of everyone together without a photographer? How do you know how to pose everyone?
How do you keep your baby safe during a session where you're taking the photos and participating in them?
There are so many unknowns!
"I highly recommend this course as it will guide you through all the steps to get that perfect hospital picture! We had some great plans to get a photo shoot with our newest born but pandemic hit so Kathleen was great at putting together this class so that we could capture our newborns photo at the hospital! Do yourself a favor, or that of a loved one that is expecting, and order the class today!"
After photographing dozens and dozens of families, I knew that I wanted to make an accessible way for every family to capture these moments with their new little ones. As a mom, I know just how quickly babies grow (they really don't keep). This course is a culmination of my years as a photographer and a mom who strives to freeze time and make memories!
and the best part is that i'm sharing all of my secrets with you to help you create the best photographs!
I have put together the best, most complete course for parents to take their own newborn photos both at the hospital and at home. You'll learn everything you need to take beautiful photos on your own and at your own pace! There is SO much to unpack, so let's dive on in!
We start this module going through all of the camera knowledge that you'll need to take your photos! And from there, I guide you through EVERYTHING you need to know about setting up for your Hospital and Home photos. It's this base of information that we build off of in the following modules!
Are you wondering how to get good family shots with no photographer? Do you want to know my best posing secrets to help your home session run smoothly? This module is PACKED with every nugget of info you need to get straight to photographing your little one!

Once you take your photos, you want to make sure that they are exactly what you had imagined they would be.

Photography isn't just about the kind of camera you own. It's about the heart and soul you put behind each frame.
"Think Katie's work is just for women? Think again. I'm a man (obviously), and my business tripled, too!"
So let's get you started!
My background is in Education - I actually taught middle schoolers and high schoolers back in the day! And through my years of experience as a teacher and a photographer and as a mom, I'm able to give you a one-of-a-kind experience to guide you as you hone your skills to take your photos with confidence!
You're more creative than you think you are. But if you're anything like me, you need help to take your skills to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what works.
You're in the right place.
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
I'm Kathleen, your teacher, friend, and cheerleader.
Once upon a time, I was a classroom teacher. But after moving from Chicago to California, I switched gears and turned my love of photography into a business! Now I'm combining the two and loving every second of it!
I remember when my first baby was born...
I wanted to capture everything. Somehow I was going to freeze time. Because I had heard that the days are long but the years are short. And as much as I wanted everyone to be wrong about that, they were absolutely right.
Five years later, I'm still trying to freeze time. I'm still trying to memorize my son's (and now my daughter's as well) features. And as much as I wrote and try to take mental pictures, there is nothing - and I repeat, nothing - like having physical photographs of these moments. Of these tiny features. Of their smiles. These photos are more than moments - they're my memories.
There's nothing like a new baby's tiny features
