Katie

Katie is fourteen going on twenty-one. I’m blown away when I edit photos of her. I don’t remember looking anything like this at fourteen. She has inherited a great sense of style from her mom {and grandmother}! Don’t let the pictures fool you, though! Underneath all of that beauty is a typical, goofy, athletic, smart fourteen year old girl.

I met Katie when she was nine. How time flies! Katie is my fiance’s (Adrian) niece, so I will soon have the pleasure of calling her ‘family’. Unfortunately, she and her family live seven hours away in Kansas so I only get to see them a couple of times a year. Fortunately, when I DO get to see her she is more than willing to model for me!

Adrian bought this Cheongsam dress while he was overseas in the military. I’ve been wanting to use it in a shoot forever so I was very happy when Katie agreed to try it on. I asked her if it was something she would wear on a normal day or special occasion and she said a fairly quick, ‘No’. They are beautiful, but definitely not made for comfort!

I took Katie, her mom and her brother to a couple of different locations over two separate days. The first day was at a hiking location that Adrian and I had just found last week. It’s called The White River Valley Trail and it’s near the Table Rock Lake Dam. Beautiful spot!

The next day I took them to my favorite little secret spot on Table Rock Lake. It’s a wooded cove that is perfect for a campfire, swinging off a rope swing into the lake…and photos. I also did a product shoot in this location for an Alpaca clothing company last fall.
