When I learned that my friend Katie had never had a proper newborn session I pretty much demanded that I do one for her. I mean, this is her fifth baby AND she’s a professional photographer (a great one at that) and she’s never had a newborn session before. This madness needed to stop.
Katie photographed our vow renewal last year and it was then I learned that she was pregnant with baby Charlie. I don’t know how she does it. Mom to now five kids and running a successful business. I can barely do it with 2. #supermom Katie is just a good person. She second shot for me when she first moved back to California and I always felt like Katie had my back. She anticipated what I needed before I needed it and she really was there to do anything I needed. She put my needs before hers and I can’t say that for many of my other second shooters. We had a lot of fun times together, but my very favorite memory of Katie was the first time she second shot for me. Her dad randomly showed up with her favorite sandwich. It was so sweet and she was so embarrassed!
The pictures that Katie took for us mean the world to me and my family. I hope these memories from their first few days as a family of 5 can begin to repay what she did for us.
