“HEY MOM, why aren't
you in these?”

There's a question that will get the mom guilt flowing. All those years of lovingly documenting your children and you're nowhere to be found!

Oh mama, do I hear you loud and clear!
That's why I designed Photography by Kat

Moms

I got your back lady!

Selfies? Lets be honest, how many more of those do I really want on my phone. 

I asked around to a bunch of friends who were also moms if they noticed the same thing, and they all said "OMG YES! It’s just so frustrating!"

So I decided to design Photography by Kat to help moms get back in front of the camera with their families.

Between all the appointments, mealtimes, bedtimes and just all around scheduling you’ve probably given up on being in any photos with your kids doing all those everyday things you want to remember.

While on maternity leave with my son, Noah, I noticed that I was always the one taking the pictures of great memories or diving for my phone while my kid did something cute, new or just plain awesome, all the while hoping that he was still doing that thing by the time I could grab a shot. 

I also tried bargaining with my husband: “take a picture so I’m in some too!”

 Sessions Starting From $500

 I want to help you document whatever stage your family is at right now, doing the things your tribe loves.

I built Photography by Kat to be the only documentary family photography studio in the Greater Toronto Area that offers full-service photographic sessions, from pre-session style and imagery consultations through to post-session art installation, for moms who are tired of being left out of the frame and need a little more heirloom quality artwork in an era of selfies, cellphones and snapchat.

As a mom I get why memory preservation is important and I aim to give moms... and dads... a visual voice in their children's lives.

I shoot to tell the story of your family for future preservation; for history's sake. 

get your sleep!

Amazing. If you read no further, at least you've read that. Our experience with Kat was simply amazing. She was flexible with locations, patient with the main man (who spent at least the first 5 minutes staring at the camera), and she went with the flow. And the pictures, the pictures, wow. We love that they were so natural and beautiful. No staged selfies, no fake smiles. Just genuine family fun. She caught so many amazing moments and expressions, and we are so happy to have this amazing photo journey of our evening routine at home. Thanks so much for capturing our lives!

i LOVE MAIL.
