We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Ira + Shanna |Married

  • A Countryside Anniversary Session

Can you believe that I photographed these two on their wedding day almost exactly TEN YEARS AGO?! This August, Shanna and Ira will have been married for ten years and I will be celebrating a DECADE of running Katelyn James Photography. It’s crazy to think about! I don’t know about you, but I think we need to throw one big KJP Birthday Party!!!! It was several months ago when Shanna asked me who she could book for an anniversary shoot and after realizing that it had been TEN years since their wedding, I gladly told her to come to our property and that I would take their portraits for free!

Everly’s 12th Month

I never would have imagined that this past February would have turned out the way that it did. We were busy ordering Evy’s First Birthday decor the first week of the month and then on February 12th, our world fell apart after our 20 week ultrasound showed that Evy’s baby brother has a very slim chance of survival. However, there has never been a season of Evy’s life where I have been more GRATEFUL for her. I love her with everything that I am but when you find out that you’re going to lose a baby, it makes you cling to the baby waiting at home for you in a very new and special way.
