Well hello there! I’m Katie the owner and photographer behind Lemon and Lace Studios . Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I’m so happy your here. So a little bit about me…I’m an outgoing soul that tends to always have a lot going on, I LOVE to be constantly creating. I’m an ICU nurse by love but for a lot of reasons I have found not only my love but my passion outside of the hospital and that is in photography. About 3 years ago I put nursing aside and have since been fully committed to my business and the chase for always trying to capture that *perfect* connection, moment and expression. Photography has allowed me to be creative, always thinking, and express emotions through photographs. On a given day you can find me with a cup of coffee searching etsy sites and pinterest for session inspiration, reading blogs, watching tutorials, hanging with my 3 little kiddos Tommy, Elsie and Mila, who by the way are the pure reason I do what I do everyday.
Three summers ago in 2013 my family and I made the move to Des Moines from around the Omaha area. We then built a home in Adel and have been here for over 2 years. It has been exciting yet scary at the same time with leaving all our family and friends behind in Nebraska. But we have really grown to love it here! I love to collaborate with other photographers and also just to meet new families!
New in 2016 I have brought on a fabulous friend and photographer Holly Olson who will now be my associate photographer for the Omaha area. She has a huge heart, a saint with children and will take great care of you. While I will make it back time to time for sessions, Holly will take on the majority of the Omaha area.
I found that my pure happiness in what I create does not come from the everyday smiling images but I am really trying to always push past that, I want to create art of your children and family, something that is thought provoking and has just raw tender emotion.
The love of my life Scott, who is also the financial advisor for Lemon and Lace Studios, supports every part of my business and I wouldn’t be able to actually call this a business without him. He is the back bone that keeps all of my crazy ideas together, I can hardly keep up with myself and somehow he manages to keep me sane. I’m a big hearted gal, that loves capturing pure emotion, and I couldn’t feel more humbled or blessed to be able to capture such a special time in your life. Welcome to my crazy little life. Now let’s begin creating YOUR story.
