Shout Out | Kathryn Johnson Photography


This is a special session, one that no one wants to shoot. These beautiful photos document the loss of a child. This couple experienced an ectopic pregnancy and these photos were taken instead of their planned maternity session. In memory of their baby, they planted a flower garden. The flowers in these photos are from that same garden. Kathryn did an excellent job capturing the sorrow and life through the photos. 

As photographers, we are here to capture people's lives. And not all of our days are full of happy smiles. Our lives are full of loss, and I am thankful that Kathryn captured these real, hard moments. 

This quilt of Kathryn's that graces these photos is one of my favorites. It is a beautiful quilt that is full of pastels. Scroll to the end to learn more about Kathryn and to show her some love in the comments!

Meet the Photographer: 


Kathryn is a natural light photographer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As a new photographer, Kathryn is currently shooting a little bit of everything, from newborn and fresh 48 sessions, to family portraits and lifestyle sessions. She got her first DSLR last November, and her only wish is that she had started sooner! Her favorite subject is her 19 month old daughter, Norah, and that will soon grow to include a baby boy in January. When not behind the lens or the computer, Kathryn works part time at her church, and is the president of a non-profit for families who have experienced pregnancy losses, called Hannah’s Hope.

Monday's Faves | On a Budget


Besides adding some extra color or texture to you photo sessions, quilts are also necessary and practical. So many times I have arrived to a session and the ground is semi damp or there is mud. Your client doesn't want to sit down and get their nice clothes dirty. And we all know we love sitting down shots! So, yay for pretty quilts. 

I tend to choose quilts with lots of colors, lots of blues, and lots of neutrals. I went through my stash and chose three quilts (I always take at least three quilts with me on a session) that I would personally take with me. These are three quilts currently listed (as of noon 8/28).

Nine Patch Quilt - $55

I always grab quilts full of blue fabrics. They tend to match client's clothes best during a session. This is full of blue and other neutrals!

Crazy Quilt - $55

This quilt is full of different colors. There are a lot of blue fabrics and other neutrals. This would match more outfit choices.

I love this quilt for photo sessions! It is also full of blue (my fave). Besides the main sections of blue, the other blocks are full of different colors. There are a few stains.
