when my best friend asked me shoot this Matilda jane quilt I was beyond excited.  I really wanted to keep it for myself!   Check out to see how she made it.


Thanks so much! Yes it is much needed:)

This quilt is to die for. How many pieces of MJ did you need to fill it up. Did you use any extra fabrics for fillers?

I’m happy to hear that you are taking a bit of a break. I too am a mother of 4 and a photographer and there are times when I really start to resent photography because it takes me away from my family. I think you are wise to take a little break, you won’t regret it. Enjoy your much needed time off!

I hardly post to my blog anymore but I had to post these cuties since I gave these to them a few weeks ago and she still hasn’t been able to see them since her computer doesn’t have a CD drive.

Lyla’s mermaid party

I can’t believe Lyla is 3 already! Seems like she was just born. This little girl has been such a fun crazy addition to our family, she has so much personality, I don’t know what we would do without her.  She is obsessed with swimming and princesses so we decided to do a swimming mermaid party. There aren’t many options for swimming in March here in Utah so we decided to do it at the rec center so it isn’t the prettiest room but at least there is a great indoor pool the kids were able to do the birthday party first then go swimming after.  Got most of my ideas through pinterest, I will try to post all the links possible for everything.


The layout for lyla’s invites and the circle cutouts for the party favors and dinner menu are from

Had them printed with the scalloped edge from

lunch boxes, cups, gumbal favors and wands are from

cake and cake pops are from 

Lyla’s headband aslo the party favor hair clips with the seashells and Lyla’s necklace and bracelet

mermaid cookies from

necklace party favors from

mini glass favor jars


You are seriously amazing!!! Cutest party ever!!

 ( May 24th, 2013 8:23 pm)

Absolutely adorable!! The mermaid cookies are to die for and that cake… WOW!!

 ( Apr 22nd, 2013 10:30 pm)

Just wanted to update everyone.  Most of  you have heard we are taking a break from taking pictures for a bit starting July 1st.  Currently wer are all booked until then.  You are welcome to leave an email and put on a cancelation list if you would like.  It has been such an honnor to work with so many of you and will miss seeing you and your sweet children.  Right now I just have to focus on being a mom and taking care of these four kiddos.  When Max is a little older I’ll be starting up again.  Hope everyone understands.  If you want to keep in touch you can always find me on instagram. My user name is peekaboophotos, I would love to hear from you.

It’s so refreshing to see someone as successful and talented as you taking a break to focus on family – props to you for making that decision! I can only imagine how busy it must be at your house. You are a great mom, and it shows through your sweet kids. I still look back nearly every day to see if you’ve posted new pictures though – I LOVE your work! This shoot is no different; perfection as always :)

 ( Feb 18th, 2013 11:11 pm)

Katie you are amazing! I am already on your cancelation list. Is it bad I’m praying for someone to cancel? LOL Where did you get your girls dresses?? They are darling!

 ( Feb 18th, 2013 6:07 pm)

Kate – You have been an inspiration and I have enjoyed seeing all of your amazing pictures!!

 ( Feb 18th, 2013 3:27 am)

You are so amazing. I totally applaud your decision to put your business on hold. I just made the same decision back in December. It was really hard but the best decision I ever made.

Christmas 2012

We had a great Christmas this year. I hope everyone did!  I’m really going to miss these expressions when my kids are all grown up.


Thanks Shawna, I’m working on it:) xo

where you get that rug in that living room ,orange one? i just love it…

 ( Jan 23rd, 2013 9:16 pm)

Ann- Haha, I think it was the 50mm 1.4. I don’t love my kitchen, it is dark cabinets If i had to do it again I would do white, I guess that is why I don’t have many pictures of it.

 ( Jan 21st, 2013 6:24 am)

Thanks Armina!

 ( Jan 21st, 2013 6:22 am)

Yes I sure do! We should email them:)

I think I got the stockings at Sundance a long time ago, but I can’t really remember. Sorry.

 ( Jan 21st, 2013 6:19 am)

Beautiful everything! Your kids are so cute.

Lacy Power 

Those are the cuttest stockings I have ever seen! Where did you get them, I am a stocking fanatic, I have bought some every year in hopes of finding the perfect ones and still havent yet!

 ( Jan 9th, 2013 5:23 pm)

The look on your baby girls face is adorable! She looks amazed at what Santa has brought her! So sweet! All of your kids are beautiful Kate!

 ( Jan 8th, 2013 7:06 pm)

Priceless, precious photos! I love the reaction shots – I got too few of my own kids this year. Sort of random – but don’t you wish that PBK ballerina stocking came with blonde hair as well?! My daughter has the same color hair as your oldest and also has that stocking! :)
