The Experience

Kait Marie Photography is a full service boutique photography studio. This means that I am here for you all the way through the entire process: choosing what to wear, where to do your session, all the way through ordering at your Reveal & Ordering Appointment, and delivery of your high quality wall art. I don’t just focus on capturing memories for you, but creating moments that you can pass on from generation to generation. My mission is to create a wonderful experience for you and your family, to provide you with top quality service and a luxury end product.

I love to work on-location as I believe this brings out the most unique parts of you. Your session will either take place in your home or outdoors as I am a natural light only photographer. We will spend some time at the beginning of the session getting comfortable, especially if there are little ones involved. I’ve been known to dance around and sing to make your munchkins feel comfortable, and let’s face it, even an adult likes it when another adult acts silly and makes a fool of herself.

I shoot a combination of posed and candid shots. Those candid shots are great for pulling out the personality in your family, everything from smiling right at the camera to tickling each other to playing chase in the yard. I wouldn’t consider myself a “posed” photographer, rather giving direction, throwing you in a pose and letting you settle into what’s really comfortable. Through the images I capture, my goal is to bring out the connection and love that you share for each other.Kait Marie Photography San Diego Wedding and Family Photographer

Your session will run about an hour (more for newborn). Sometimes it can be intimidating for a client to be in front of the camera, but my goal is to make you totally comfortable and have a relaxed experience. This should be a stress free experience for everyone involved. And don’t worry if your kids aren’t smiling on command. Let them do their thing and let me capture them. That’s what I’m great at!

Once the memories are captured, then the magic happens. It’s my turn to bring your story to life. Then comes the actual best part! Your Reveal & Ordering Session usually scheduled about two weeks after your shoot date. I’ll spend time selecting and hand-editing your images and creating a beautiful slide show for you to view. Then I’ll help you choose wall art, image boxes, albums and prints to fit your needs. Planning your order can be a little daunting, but that’s why the Reveal Night is so special. I’ll guide you every step of the way as to which custom art collections will fit best in your home and where. I want the art on your wall to bring you and your family happiness, so I want to help you get exactly what you’re envisioning. And if you’re not exactly sure what you want, that’s okay too. I’m here to help guide you and design things just for you.

Having family memories hanging on your walls is priceless and I can’t wait to help you make that a reality in your home.
