Kaitlyn and Alex | Downtown South Bend Engagement Session

When I first met with Kaitlyn and Alex at the Chicory Cafe, I knew right away I wanted to photograph their wedding. A May wedding at the new River House Bed and Breakfast at The Morris Estate. An intimate affair for their closest family and friends to celebrate their marriage! And Bed and Breakfast weddings will always have such a special place in my heart, because Miles and I were married at a bed and breakfast, and all our families stayed the weekend with us there. It was perfect and I know that Kaitlyn and Alex’s wedding in just 3 short weeks will be too.


We had so much fun in the warm weather. We talked about their final wedding plans and the excitement was written all over their faces. They beamed as they talked about their day, knowing it was just a month away. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding, I know it is going to be full of so many laughs, so much love, and maybe a few happy tears!

welcome home baby monroe | cat alkire photography | lifestyle newborn session

I am beyond excited to share this newborn session with sweet baby Monroe and her lovely parents. I met Becca and Matt way back in 2013 when I photographed their wedding. Since then, I’ve photographed a lot of family weddings and have stayed in contact with them. And when she found out she was pregnant I was beyond thrilled for them! And when she asked me to take photos in their home with their newest addition, I couldn’t wait!


It is so great getting to capture forever moments for clients that have become friends and share in their joys. And their labor and delivery story is one that definitely humbles you and reminds you of just how precious each day we have on this Earth is. And also how scary childbirth can be. They spent 15 days in the hospital and long story short, they were SO SO happy to be home and settled in with their girl. I am so happy for them and Roe is so loved by so many! And that nursery, GOALS. Straight out of a West Elm catalog.


Welcome home, sweet Monroe!
