Katie Kothmayer | Portraits

A couple weeks ago, I took a few portraits for our sweet friend, Katie. It was somewhat spontaneous, so we ended up taking a few inside my house and most of them outside in my front yard. Also, I came down with some kind of stomach bug right in the middle of it - but Katie was a good sport the entire time and even helped hold the babies for me (she's an amazing babysitter and Micah just loves her!) I am excited to share with you some of the portraits from our fun time together. DSC_0226 _SnapseedDSC_0045 _SnapseedDSC_0062 _Snapseed

Katie is currently going to school for nursing at College of Central Florida (or CF, as we lovingly refer to it) here in Ocala where she and I grew up. We actually have a little history together, although we didn't know it at the time. Her dad was my AP History teacher in high school. One day after class he asked me if I would be interested in babysitting his kids. Since I have a late birthday (May) I was only 15 at the time and not driving yet, so it was going to be difficult for me to get to his house. Unfortunately, I was never able to meet Katie back then. But as God would have it... 10 years later, she ended up becoming MY kids babysitter!

Katie's smile is one of my favorite things about her. And her LAUGH. If you could just hear it. It's the best.
