GET TO KNOW THE GIRL BEHIND THE LENSE
Hi! My name is Katelyn, but please, call me Kate! I am a graphic designer, wedding photographer, and day dreamer. Most days you will find me writing calligraphy, making homemade soaps, or getting lost in music. Art supplies, beta fish, pizza, and adventure fill my heart with smiles, and I love serving the world by sharing love, living well, making art, and capturing life's most precious moments.

The final product of your photo session is the creation of beautiful portraits to display in your home and to enjoy for years to come.
The best way to display portraits is to complement the images and the style of your decor. With lifestyle photography, groupings of portraits in a series make sense to tell your story rather than one single, posed image.
Here are a few snapshots from our own studio inspiration guide. Our full Inspiration Guide presents a number of customizable gallery ideas to show off your unique art.
With decorative square beading applied to a simple contemporary shape and finished with an antique patina, Bella finds a balance between a traditional ornamental frame and a more severe modern one. This is a very versatile frame, perfect where a touch of glamour is required.
Woodworks provides the warmth of a natural wood frame in a simple, clean but still a bit “edgy” sharp-beveled profile. Light, medium, or dark stains without gloss give the poplar-wood moulding a natural, unvarnished look.
The original "Seamless Frame": rather than being made from cut and joined lengths of pre-finished moulding, one panel of MDF is laser-cut into a frame without mitered corner joints. Wood moulding is attached to the back, creating the space for backing and up to 5/16" of artwork. The frame is painted after assembly to create a clean, unelaborated frame--a modern classic.
GRAB & GO COLLECTIONS
The Grab & Go Collections are the fastest and easiest way to get all of the beautiful artwork we crafted up onto your walls without even breaking a sweat. Grab & Go Collections can be crafted with any of the frames, in any color you see above.
Your grab and go collection will be waiting at the studio for you to take it home, and give it a home. They each come with printed images and are installed, clean and ready to hang.
Classic and clean, Collection 1 frames one square and two vertical images in a simple showpiece arrangement.
Deck your walls and desk with this 6 piece arrangement, which gives four vertical wall images equal treatment, and adds two smaller images for a tabletop centerpiece.
Make a bold statement with this 6 piece collection, which alternates horizontal and square images in a modern configuration.
Add to this asymmetric and modular 8 piece arrangement with your future session images for a dynamic, contemporary display.
