Lisa, your boys are the cutest things EVER! I might steal one if I don’t get a boy next!

 
Angela Timms

Do you only photograph beautiful people as a rule, or can you make everyone look this amazing?!

 ( Oct 16th, 2010 2:15 am)
Niina 

Amazing photos!

 ( Oct 15th, 2010 6:07 pm)
Lisa 

I am lucky to have these three amazing guys in my life! I love every single photo! The only negative to your work is finding a spot for each one in my house…I’m working on it though! Katie, anytime you want to trade kids for a day…we can…I would love to do girly things for a day!

These little boys are ADORABLE!!! I thought my son was the cutest baby ever but holy cow, to die for. She must be the world’s happiest mommy to have two little boys that beautiful. I want another one now, geez.

Katie! Hi! I’m loving your new blog!! I saw the canvas pictures you had printed and was wondering what the sizes were that you had in your baby’s room? I was trying to figure out the best way to hang mine and I loved how you did it.

 ( Oct 13th, 2010 6:35 am)
Corin Jones 

I ran across your blog via a shop on etsy (sorry I can’t remember which one!! I visit MANY over there). Anyway, I had to comment and say I am an instant admirer of you work! Absolutely stunning!

Hi Katie, I lOVE……. your work, it’s all beautiful. Everyday I come and check out what’s new, it’s so much fun watching your blog. I hope to be as amazing as you and your husband one day. I love all your props too. Would you happen to know what pepperlu’s email address is. I live in Toronto and I see they may not ship to where I live. I’d like to send them a message but I need a Mac account for my computer, but I rather just use my free hotmail account. Would you mind sending me the address?

Thanks You

Lyla Rose is 7 months old!

Well I took these pictures when she was 6 months, but haven’t posted them. She is growing up so fast, I can’t even stand it!
She has seriously been the best baby EVER! We sure love having her in our family.
Also thanks everyone for your help on the family picture. Jason is blowing some up for us, can’t wait to show you!

 
Katie Hatch 

Oh my goodness, she is a little doll baby! We were in the middle of a move and I haven’t checked your blog in awhile, she sure has grown up!

Wow, aside from loving these, I am in love with that little strapless frilly pink thing she’s wearing in the second to the last! Would you share where in the world you found that? My daughter is almost 9 months, and I’d love to shoot her in this. The other thing that’s making me smile here is your daughter’s name. After having 3 boys, I was so excited to be able to name a baby girl. And my absolute favorite name we came up with was “Lyla”, my choice, and the middle name “Rose” my husband’s choice. I just came across your site last week, didn’t know there was a wee one with that exact name! It’s beautiful! But my alternate favorite was Kiera Rose, and my husband preferred that one. But how funny, and they are probably about the same age!

 ( Oct 13th, 2010 5:18 pm)

AWWW, Lyla, she is too dang cute!

Hey,
I have links for my favorite headbands on my link section. I do have a lot of headbands here in the studio that people use:)
I hope someday you can come get pictures!

 ( Oct 21st, 2010 4:13 am)
Jenn 

Now I’m sure at one point you already posted this, but I never had a little girl to give them to. I now need to know where you find all of these wonderful head bands you feature in many of your photos. Also I’m just a little curious, do many of your clients have these bows or do you barrow some form your girls when inspired? P.S. As I’m sure you already know you are an absolutely gifted photographer… its to bad I cant afford you :) Keep it up I love your blog!

Our family pictures

Well Monica was so fast at getting us our pictures! Someday we will be that fast:)
I need help deciding which picture to blow up. What do you think?!?

 
katie 

HI Miranda,
Just try and go with the color scheme of your house or the room you will be hanging the portrait in. I chose fall colors with texture. Adding belts, necklaces and hair pieces adds a lot to the photograph.
You will do great!

 ( Aug 19th, 2011 10:39 pm)
Miranda 

I’ve been drooling over these photos since you posted them last year. So inspirational! My daughter will be one in September and we are getting family pictures done…any tips on shopping for them? It will be me, my husband, and baby girl. You always seem to style everyone and make your photos that much more gorgeous! Love your work!

 ( Aug 19th, 2011 1:39 am)
angela 

I love #3 because of the incredible vineyard background, and the family looks beautiful! But its a toss up because #4 is incredible light! Wow, hard to decide for you…they are all amazing…just finding your blog now, love your photography! From another busy mom photographer vintage lover with 3 precious girls!

 ( Oct 24th, 2010 2:29 pm)

I love #3. .. there is just something so eyecatching about you leaning into your family. . . I too, would choose one with the vineyards behind you! I jumped over to Monica’s site. . . she had a few more posted. I loved the one of you and Dan.. . full body. So fun!

Korie Nordstrom 

Katie, I’m from Ca & now in Va and I so miss the beautiful wineries! I say to pick no. 3, you don’t want to miss out showing that beautiful winery in the background!

 ( Oct 4th, 2010 12:40 pm)
Monica Martin 

So glad everyone loves ‘em! It wasn’t hard capturing gorgeous photos of a gorgeous family! I love them all too :)

#3 is my vote. So perfect. Any you choose will be darling

 ( Oct 4th, 2010 3:16 am)
Christie Lewis 

Love them all! I have this skirt… Great taste!!! I would go with number 3 also. That scenery is too beautiful not to see in the background.

Thanks Katelyn. Got it at Anthropologie

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 8:51 pm)

LOVE them! My FAV family shot is the one where the whole chair shows with wine country in the background. So PERFECT.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 4:38 pm)
Jynna 

Stunning family, location, photography, etc. My vote is for #3 as well! I was also wondering where you purchased your bib necklace?

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 3:23 pm)
pamela 

I think we all love your outfit choices. I actually could not get them out of my head today; the colors selected are super creative! Are there any details you will share regarding them? Especially those gorgeous boots! We live on an island- it is better incredible weather, but cool outfits likes these make me miss the crisp weather. Is that really what the area looks like in the background where you live? Excellent work and I agree pick them all and alternate them from time to time.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 1:18 pm)
Jennifer O. (aka. Romeo and Mae) 

WOW, you have a beautiful family! And you DO NOT look like you just had a baby! My vote is for either #2 or #4. :)

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 12:32 pm)
Becky 

Love the first one. And I love how different your little girls look from each other.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 2:39 am)
Melissa 

WOW! These are amazing! Your family is BEAUTIFUL! My vote is for #3.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 1:32 am)
Jeanine 

The third one is the best!

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 12:55 am)
Shea 

#3 is my favorite. Love your skirt!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 7:48 pm)
Lorena Mora 

How horrible they are all beautiful and perfect! Is there really only one you can pick? I would have such a hard time picking, oh what if you make them all big and then rotate them. Put one up for a while then another one. I would hate to have to make the decision, your little one’s photograph so perfectly. At least when my kids get photographed one or the other isn’t always paying attention so usually only a handful of both of them looking at the same time come out so it makes my decision easier, LOL. I usually have to order a few of one and a few of the other and if I’m lucky 1 photo of the both. Maybe once they are older they will cooperate better. Oh I wish you had posted some of the Disney ones, I LOVE DISNEY, big fan and luckily we live in California so we are lucky to go often thanks to passes.

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 6:55 pm)
Michelle 

I love the 3rd one, you can see all of you good and the background is stunning. It’s amazing!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 6:14 pm)

Thanks everyone for your help! I’m leaning towards #3 or #5. This location is actually in CA, I wish it was in Utah!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 5:31 pm)

My vote is number 2 or 3. These pictures are truly a family treasure!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 5:25 pm)
Misty Brandow 

First off your family is ADORABLE! The outfit that you chose are amazing! I would never have thought to put something like this together and yet it looks SO SO SO amazing! I love it!! I also love the white and cream dresses that your girls are wearing in the beach pictures. SO cute!

My favorite family pictures are the first one and the third one. I LOVE the background in the third one best. It looks painted in. It is so perfect.

Good luck! Whatever you choose is going to be amazing! =)

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 4:35 pm)

Gorgeous! your family is beautiful! i really like the first and second one, kinda leaning toward the second, but you can’t go wrong with any of them they are all amazing!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 3:52 pm)
Tiffany Page 

Katie,
These are fabulous! I love #3 because of the contrast of all the rich colors. You can’t go wrong with any of them though! Oh, and I NEED your boots :)

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 3:39 pm)
Shannon 

I LOVE THESE!!! i would probably blow up every one of them and display them in my house! ha Seriously love these, could your family be any more beautiful? Great background, and love the one of the girls dancing.

I like the 3rd one down – y’all are super sharp, the colors are super vibrant and the background is just GORGEOUS (matching your gorgeous family)!! So, that’s my pick! Or the first one…but definitely out of those two!
