literally. With the elevation of 8,000 feet, I was slightly out of breath
exploring the scenic trails and bridges but in the end, the loss of breath
came from the mountainous views and vibrant fall colors. This is truly an experience worth having.

Wedding Bells! https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2017/10/wedding-bells

2017 has been an amazing year filled with so many weddings of friends and
families! Always a guest and never a photographer, I have enjoyed watching
the professionals work their magic while demonstrating their strategic Ninja
stealth skills. I never thought I would have the opportunity to be
involved in a wedding from the photography side but was blessed with the
opportunity to do so for the sweetest bride and her new hubby! On the day
of, my anxiety turned into full blown excitement which took over and
resulted in hundreds and hundreds of photos taken of this beautiful day.
Every emotion a wedding can naturally bring out was seen, felt, and captured
on so many levels. The bride was gorgeous in her champagne colored silk and
lace gown and the groom as handsome as could be in his grey suit. The entire
bridal party was so much fun to photograph and nothing short of
entertaining. It was an amazing experience to be a fly on the wall with the
ability to see such sweet shared moments and listen to family stories.
Between the first looks to the first dance, holding back tears for anyone
was almost impossible. It is clear the love two people share can engulf
anyone and everyone it surrounds. These two amazing individuals brought
together by fate have the most incredible road ahead of them and I am so
thankful to have captured some of their most precious and intimate moments. 

Cheers to the Bride and Groom!

Bishops Castle https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2017/10/bishops-castle

One of the most amazing things about living in Colorado is getting to
experience such beautiful places like Bishops Castle. If you have never
heard of Bishops Castle, it is by far one of the most extraordinary places I
have ever seen. Built by one individual, this castle is incredibly
detailed and a very ideal for that perfect princess photoshoot. The castle
itself gives off a very dark and mysterious appearance especially in the
beginning of fall when the weather has turned and the leaves have fallen.
While a somewhat dark place to be, we had a blast shooting in the castle
walkways and corridors. This little princess looked amazing and felt right
at home exploring and dreaming.

Twinning and Big Brother Love https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2017/8/twinning-and-big-brother-love

While kids can be challenging to photograph in general, one thing I have discovered slightly a bit more challenging is photographing TWINS! After about an hour of incredible smiles, giggles, and sassy poses, I may have slightly panicked when I opened up over a thousand photos of what looked to be the same girl! Luckily, during our photoshoot, their bright personalities stood out and I was able to soak up subtle differences through their photos. I have never seen a bond quit like these two little girls have and it was almost as if they had a little something extra special than what other siblings do. Their older brother was also stellar to work with and nailed his shoot! He was one of the sweetest young men I have met and although more reserved, showed so much personality through his photos which came out incredible! Narrowing down his images was nearly impossible because almost every single one was worth sharing!

I had so much fun with this family and the entertainment alone was priceless!

Diva Darling https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2017/7/diva-darling

She, my friends is the most "fabulous" little girl ever! Not only did she pose in ever way imaginable but she dubbed her mom my assistant and food currier! This child worked it like no other and it was one hilarious day with the comments coming out of her! She is such a doll and her mom, another great friend and I had laughing fits over this little lady and her views of life. I may or may not have bribed her with cake pops but in the end I think she would have done the shoot regardless considering she was the queen of the day!

Boy or Girl?! https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2017/6/boy-or-girl

While I don't normally travel for photoshoots, there was NO WAY I would miss the opportunity to photograph one of my best friends and her surprise baby GIRL! She waited until the end to find out with her hubby whether the world would be blessed with Baby boy V or Baby girl V. Needless to say as soon as I found out I cried and giggled nonstop! I was even more excited to find out baby girl had the most beautiful red hair and amazing completion. As soon as I could, I flew myself out to Indiana and found myself so in love with this little girl and her family. My bestie was glowing with uncontrollable joy which made this one emotional photoshoot for everyone. Baby girl did an incredible job and was so relaxed which made for some very sweet memories. <3

Delivery Day! https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2017/3/newborn-feet-are-the-best

I had the most amazing opportunity to photograph a beautiful mommy and her newborn daughter about 15 minutes after she made her entrance into the world! First off, childbirth is one incredible thing and the fact that a woman's body is capable of growing a human being is beyond amazing. This mother is an incredible woman and friend of mine and I feel so honored to be a part of her amazing day. She gave birth to a beautiful little girl and the moments I was able to capture for them even made me cry! Photographing a brand new life is the most humbling experience and I am so thankful to have been part of this glorious day.

Suits and Sand https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2016/2/suits-and-sand


Theres so much to be said about a fathers love for his sons and the connection they have. This shoot was my first "official" photography shoot I was asked to do and while hesitant, I was excited to say yes! I was so nervous and hoping for the best but these three did amazing and the love shown through their images is extraordinary. In the end, everyone was soaked and covered in sand but whats a shoot without some fun?!

Why "Katching MoMents"? https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2015/9/why-katching-moments


I started exploring the world of photography in 2010 when my daughter was born. It all began with a simple Nikon starter kit and basic lens which changed my entire outlook on photos. Every picture I took of her made me fall more in love with photography. As the years progressed, so did my camera, lens, and style of work. While I have dabbled in various types of photography styles, my passion really resonates with photographing the littles. Catching a child's expression, seeing their eyes shine bright and joining in on their infectious giggles are only a few of the reasons why I love what I do. 

My hobby truly turned obsession when my son was born two years after my daughter and I haven't looked back. Everyday I continue to learn as much as possible to ensure I have the ability to capture those moments we value the most.

Katching MoMents was established in 2014 when my two children inspired me to really get involved with photography. The name is sentimental to me because it represents a few pieces of my life, my children, my family name, and the purpose in which I do this for.

Its all really simple, by doing what we love, we find joy in every moment.

Rough and Tough https://www.katchingmomentsphotography.com/blog/2014/9/rough-and-tough

As a mother, I can tell you one of the first thoughts when you go into labor is just hoping everything goes perfect without any issues arising. Sometimes, unfortunately, deliveries don't always go as planned. Starting as a planned home water birth and ending with an emergency C-Section, Baby A arrived into this world a healthy BIG boy, but did have a few complications that put him in the NICU for a few days. His beautiful mom and dad held on strong knowing they would have to wait a little longer to hold their precious baby boy. The support and love they showed each other through the most trying time of their lives was undeniably the reason they were able to pull together and be there for their son. Even through the tears, labor pain, and not being able to hold her little love as quick as she wanted, this mom was an incredible rock and pushed through the most emotional moments. Both mom and baby are doing perfect!
