HI! I'm Katrina
I love small dinner parties where everyone feels like family, yummy chopped salads (Starland Cafe has the best!), rain on a tin roof with my favorite book, bingeing period dramas or Food Network. I’ll always invest in travel or antique furniture over handbags, and won’t think twice about splurging on a great hotel room. Never turn down a piece of FunFetti, its like a party in every bite and a long drive with Whitney Houston will always cure a bad day.

THE KBP STORY
IT STARTED WITH A MELT DOWN And it wasn’t my daughter’s…
After years of struggling with infertility due to my rare uterine condition, I was overjoyed to hear those sweet words:
YOU’RE PREGNANT! 😱
*cue the ugly tears*
In sheer disbelief, I cried non-stop for two days. They say to keep big news to yourself for a while, but my excitement was to much – I spilled the beans to everyone.
Bursting with joy, I, a self-proclaimed planner (or maybe an over-planner, if that’s even a thing), immediately dove into researching all things pregnancy and baby. Little did I know, my journey into motherhood would teach me
Lesson #1: Nothing goes as planned.
And Oh boy...
The reality check hit HARD
Once she arrived, I quickly learned sleep deprivation was my new best friend. Home at last, just days before our scheduled newborn pictures, the dress I had carefully chosen decided to play hard to get.
Picture day arrived, and let’s just say, I underestimated the chaos. An emotional wreck, overwhelmed at being a new mom, I found myself sitting in the photography studio shedding tears. Ah, the wonders of hormones!
Then, I single-handedly made a decision I regret to this
day…I sat out of her pictures.
It was in that heartbreaking moment I realized moms, whether first-timers like me or seasoned pros, all grapple with the challenges of adjusting to our new or modified roles.
Surely, there had to be a better way to capture these memories without feeling like a total mess.
What if there was a studio where a mom could just show up, and a dedicated team would take care of everything? Imagine multiple dress options, a skilled team of hair and makeup artists, and a photographer who truly understood the journey.
This is where Katrina Barrow Photography was born.
