Hey there! I’m Kate.
I’m a born and raised New Englander that always needs to be busy doing something. I listen to music way too loud, have a style obsession with backpacks and hats, can't start my morning without espresso and rescued my soul-dog while living out in Colorado.
Before making the full-time leap into Freebird I worked in Advertising, managing everything from day-to-day operations to strumming up new, creative tag-lines and campaign ideas. After three years of doing the double full-time job juggle, I finally made the move into self-employment. Almost two years all-in and life has been something like a dream for me. Sure, working every weekend can be taxing, but for me right now in life--the juice is well worththe squeeze. I get to work with clients and their favorite people on their best days ever-- Does it get sweeter than that?
Thinking back to my first shoot ever, I remember being immediately fixated on playing with the natural light through a lens. Fast-forward almost five years and my love for light has turned into a complete obsession. When I'm behind the camera and I'm chasing good light with a couple or family, I find myself riding this creative high. You'll see! ;)
I currently live, play and work on the North Shore of Massachusetts. Holler at me if you’re ever in Newburyport! I’m always down for an impromptu coffee, cocktail or photo shoot.

Perfect Eye Behind the Lens
Freebird Photography (aka Kate) is extraordinary. Kate shot our engagement/save the date pictures and covered our entire wedding. It is hard for me to find the words to describe her eye behind the lens. Kate is able to find every single perfect angle at the perfect light and at the correct moment. We have wedding photos that we are going to gush over for the rest of our lives. Not only is her work unbelievable, her personality will want you to take her home with you. She is so kind, professional, fun and by the end of the shoot you feel so comfortable, you wish there was more time. There is no one else I would trust to capture the important memories. We are customers for life. Thank you so much Kate. You are phenomenal.Sent on 12/07/2020

Kate is the best!!!!
I knew I wanted Kate to photograph my wedding before I even knew where I wanted to get married! She’s an amazing person, she’s kind and has an eye for detail. She is SO good at this it’s crazy. A day after our wedding she already sent me a few sneak peek photos and I literally couldn’t stop looking at them. If you want photos that you’ll cherish forever and ever... hire Kate!!!Sent on 07/11/2019

We are SO happy that we chose Kate as our photographer. We first met Kate over a year ago when she shot our engagement photos and we instantly knew how amazing she was! My husband and I felt so comfortable and the pictures turned out great. On our big day, Kate was amazing. She worked so well with our families and even helped bustle my wedding dress! I've received many comments from family and friends telling me how friendly and personable Kate was. We received a few sneak peeks the day after our wedding and are eagerly awaiting the rest!Sent on 07/22/2019
