I met Katie through Twitter several years ago, we were both going to a SoCal Photog Shootout and through the wonders of hashtags we connected. ;] We hung out that afternoon, I was definitely terrified of spending the day with other photographers… and was likely really clingy, but we became friends anyway and not too long after that when Katie tweeted about needing new headshots I was like, “Pick me!! Pick me!!!!”
I’m not really sure why Katie stayed friends with me after those first two photographic encounters because let me tell you, the photos from both are absolutely *awful*, but she kept me around and was one of the handful of “photographer friends” I had who became real life friends.
A couple of weeks ago Katie asked if I would take new headshots for her as she relaunches her business under the brand new name: Katie Jane Creative and I’m so excited to share what we came up with, with you today.
P.S. In case you don’t remember, Katie took MY new headshots a few months back.
We wanted to make the images personal to Katie and where she is in life right now, so we started the session at her church, ROCKHARBOR Costa Mesa.
Then, we made our way over to The LAB, we were pretty sure photography wasn’t allowed but it was a Monday and no one was there… so it worked pretty well in our favor I’d say.
There were too many cute Katie’s I couldn’t just pick one.And I have to say, I’m in love with this whole session because in the 5ish years I’ve known Katie this is the happiest I have seen her. She has always been bubbly and exuberant but happiness and laughter just spills out of her now, I love seeing my friends truly happy.
The LAB is just too cool, no wonder it’s where the hipsters go.
After seeing a security guard we made our way across the street to grab coffee at Milk & Honey, one of the most adorable coffee shops I have ever been to!
These are some of my favorite pictures ever. A cute girl, her Bible, and coffee in a Boston mug? Perfection.
And I’ll end with succulents… because I love them. And, Katie, I love you too!! Thank you for asking me to capture these moments for you!! ♥
