This lovely couple is expecting their first baby this August and they are going to be the best parents! Whitney and I discovered that we played softball against each other in grade school and we had many other connections as well, that is what is so fun about Memphis… its the smallest big city in the world.

Mike was obsessed with the chickens and they liked him too as you can see they wanted to follow us around during our session. I even showed them how we feed them and pepper our Rooster gave them a few pecks on the hand. After our session we stayed a chatted for a while like we were old friends, and I am so excited to meet baby girl very soon!

Y’all enjoy a little look into this Tennessee maternity session!

Oh man, Oh man! I am pumped to share this wedding with you guys and I am also pumped to post to the blog more often and share my work! It is NO secret that I LOVE the beach and I LOVE my job so when the two combine it is seriously the BEST! I had the privilege of capturing the proposal, the engagement and a few more sessions with these folks before the actual wedding day so we were more than comfortable with each other, not to mention I have known this beautiful lady since she was in 1st of 2nd grade.

So Ashley (Bailey to those that really know her) had been one of my younger sister’s best friends since elementary school and I remember them running around the house together all the time. I also remember them getting quite upset with me on Friday nights during football season when it was cool to be fashionably late, but they wanted to get there early to play on the hill and well I was their ride so I would make them wait in the good ole’ Bronco til I was ready to leave… boy did it make them mad. Luckily she forgave me and asked me to photograph her wedding!!!

Patrick came along several years after the Harding days and he sure did make Ashley one happy girl. I remember him thoughtfully planning the proposal and asking my big pregnant self to hide in the bushes and capture it all.  I am so happy to know these two and the world needs to know how sweet and appreciative these folks are! I can’t tell you how many “happies” they gave me throughout the whole process.

Ok I am going to stop rambling so you can enjoy this beautiful beach wedding! Bailey and Patrick it was an honor and I’m so thankful you choose me to photograph your special day!

So I blogged a family session… What? This is something I really wish I did more of because they are a HUGE part of my SMALL business and I love me some fun family sessions. A few things about my family sessions, we get a few “traditional” smile photos out of the way and then we are done with that and we run and play and hug and laugh and play and run and sweat! If you are looking for a lot of everyone looking at the camera and smiling, I am not your girl. I worked with over 60 families in 2017 for family sessions and we are right on track for the same in 2018. My fall schedule is already jam packed but I will be taking a few more families for this fall with booking starting in July. I truly hate turning people away so make sure to get on the books asap. It is crazy to be thinking about Christmas photos in June, but its not!

I hope you guys enjoy a little snippet of what a family session with Katie Norrid Photography looks like and I hope to be showing you many more!

I never promised to be the BEST at blogging (quickly), but I am trying to get to all my weddings and throw in a few extra sessions for you as well.

It has almost been a year since these amazing people said “I Do.” During their engagement and over this past year I have grow to love them even more.  Courtney and Tyler are that once in a lifetime couple! Courtney is the most fun, happy, beautiful, kind, energetic gal I’ve ever met! She was so gracious and thankful to everyone on her wedding day and you could just tell how much everyone LOVES her! Tyler is the same way and they way he adores Courtney is something special!

I was pregnant at this wedding, but didn’t know it yet and when Courtney found out she was one of the first to text me with Congrats.  I knew Courtney and Tyler were going to be great parents one day from the way they loved their little people in the wedding and when I saw Courtney and Tyler at Rachel(super awesome bridesmaid turned bride) and Logan’s wedding that summer Courtney told me a little secret!!! To say I was excited is an understatement! We will be celebrating Baby Aldridge this coming weekend, as well as taking Courtney and Tyler’s maternity pictures!

This was another BettsMade production, and it was perfect! Her hair and makeup were done by my FAVORITE Jena Bruback and Courtney looked amazing! They said “I DO” at Courtney’s family church in Olive Branch, MS and then headed downtown to party the night away.  Party they did, C&T lit up the dance floor all night long, chugged champagne, and stuffed cupcakes in their faces! It was such a fun wedding to document!  Thank you Courtney and Tyler for allowing me to be a small part of your BIG day. I’m excited to see you soon and even more excited to see you become parents next month!
