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 - Outside Sessions

If you are a photographer, you more than likely shoot outside. If it isn't a wedding, you will find me shooting outside during sunset. It is where I thrive. Please, give me all of the yummy, golden light! So, today I want to share with you three quilts that are currently listed in the shop (as of 4/24/17), that I would take with me to my sunset session today (if I had a session today)! 

First up, we have this patchwork quilt. I prefer patchwork quilts because of the different colors scattered throughout. Most of the time, we aren't 100% sure what outfit our clients will show up wearing. Quilts full of different colors insure it *should* match whatever color combo they arrive in.

Second, I always bring a quilt that is full of blues! After shooting for many years, I have found that blue quilts tend to match more outfits than other colors. So, this quilt is absolutely perfect. Another plus to this quilt? It is thin and light weight. Sometimes, during a session, we have to walk a lot and carry all of our gear. This quilt is easy to fold and carry!

Checkered Quilt - $90

Third, I would also bring along this flower garden quilt. I love the deeper, neutral tones throughout. It would definitely go with most outfit choices!
