For those of you who are visiting to see new pictures, here are some recent ones from my favorite model as of late.   For those of you who are visiting to check out new pictures that don’t involve my kids, I’ll have something for you next week 😉

Hope you’re all staying warm!

Julianne He is so adorable, congrats again hope your family is well!

happy valentine’s day

As an homage to Ralph Wiggum, I looked for shirts for Kai and Aaliyah that said “I choo choo choose you” ~but had no luck.  This was the best I could do instead 😉

Hope you all have a sweet Valentine’s Day full of hugs and kisses from whoever you love!

Heather K Where did you get the Beatles shirt? I sing that song to Asher every night!

Kat Heather it’s from Old Navy surprisingly! They’ve got a “Kids vintage T” section lately and I’ve picked up a few great ones.

happy birthday cheryl!

pssst… Did you hear? 30 is the new 20!  Not that we know anyone that’s turning 30 or anything…  really, we don’t.  Nope, no one’s turning 30 around here…

OK, so Cheryl is– and I will be in a couple months!  sigh.  Despite the fact that we still feel and act like the same two teenagers that bonded 16 years ago, the calendar doesn’t lie 😉   Life is GREAT though and I’m pretty sure her hubby and baby boy Dax are going to spoil her rotten today! (hint hint, nudge nudge) I won’t be there in Vancouver today to celebrate this milestone with her but we’re packing up the family for a visit next weekend (yay!!) no doubt we’ll be sharing belated birthday cake and good times will be had by all.   Until then, I just wanted to publicly declare my love for my best friend, my business partner and my sister from another mister~  Happy Birthday Cheryl!!!

That’s us at the ripe ol’ age of 15 on a beach in Portland.  Is it just me, or do we look not a day over 11? ha!

Cheers to another fab year,

shannon You guys look exactly the same – gorgeous!

Happy 30th Cheryl! Didn’t I tell you it wouldn’t feel any different? 🙂

good news! we want more

This is Lehla.  I asked her if she thinks we should accept 2 more wedding bookings for 2010.  She said yes.

So good news~  despite the fact that we were all booked up for weddings, we’re going to open up 2 more dates *UPDATE: they’re all booked now! sorry:( )for some lucky couples that are going to get the Katch Treatment for their weddings!  As we mention all the time, we’re only able to take on a very limited number of weddings a year due to our crazy family/personal schedules.  We wish we could do tons of weddings because we LOVE them but alas, we just can’t.  However, with that being said, much like my inability to turn down a good shoe sale or to stop at only one piece of cake, I’ve decided that I just want more!   More beautiful gowns!  More over-the-top romance!  More fabulousness!

Plus, Lehla told me to 🙂

So if you’re a couple that’s inquired previously and was turned away due to us being “all booked up for 2010”, or if you’re just now deliberating booking Katch Studios to shoot your wedding–  act fast!  We can’t wait to make some photo magic happen on your wedding day!  *If you were turned away because we’re already booked on your specific date, apologies– that hasn’t changed 🙁

Anita Yay for more weddings… oh and could Lehlas hair be anymore perfect?! I am super jealous.

katch featured in blush magazine

So what’s cooler than getting to photograph a painfully fabulous couple that’s got style to spare?  –having their wedding featured in a fabulous wedding magazine!!  Back in October we shot Dana and Jeremy‘s beautifully chic wedding at Edmonton’s Fairmont Hotel MacDonald and what resulted was some of our favorite and most beautiful wedding shots to date (it helps when your subjects can’t take a bad picture even if they tried!) It seems we weren’t the only ones that took notice, as their wedding was chosen to be featured in Blush Magazine‘s January 2010 issue.  We couldn’t be more thrilled to have been a part of their special day and are admittedly giddy with excitement to see our work published!  Yes they officially popped our magazine cherry 😉

To check out the full feature go out and pick up your copy of Blush Magazine today!  For more info on where to get one click on THIS LINK.   To view the online issue now just click on THIS LINK.

Now I’m gonna go and celebrate with a nice big bowl of ice cream   🙂

Cherie CONGRATS! You have touched so many people’s lives with your talent & it was only a matter of time before the rest of the world got to witness such love from behind the camera. There is more publicity to come!
