As a mother of 3 small children, I know how fast children grow.  As mothers, our days are often filled with loud noises, mess, and chaos that comes in this season of mothering. But within each day, there are quiet and simple moments that are the moments that I hold so dear to my heart. You know the moments, when your heart feels like will explode with love. Whether it is the daydreams of meeting your baby for the first time or that intoxicating smell of a newborn's head. Perhaps it is rocking your baby to sleep or the entire family snuggled up together in a fit of laughter. The moments you beg time to freeze so they can last forever.




Welcome! I'm Kate, the face behind Quiet Side Photography. I am a natural light photographer of motherhood & family, serving Loudoun County and throughout Northern Virginia and the DC Metro area.

I am passionate about creating beautiful images of your family to be cherished for generations to come. Like yourself, family means everything to me. Children grow so fast, and we never get this time back with them. These moments with our family are precious and irreplaceable. The portraits I create are much more than the annual holiday card or a post on social media. Instead, my portraits document the true love, beauty and connection of your family while preserving this ever-fleeting season of life.



These are your memories. A beautiful portrait can freeze time and preserve this moment for you to always look back on. Your babies will only be this small for a very short time. They will never fit in your arms this way again. Capture it. Children will grow in a blink of an eye, how do you want them to remember this time? A photograph is a tangible reminder of how fiercely they were loved. I can't stop time for you, but I can help you capture these beautiful fleeting moments.
I look forward capturing the quiet side of parenting for you.
