Katie Mathews Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my Blog!

    I am so happy you have found my photography blog! My name is Katie Mathews and I am a custom photographer in Wilmington, NC. I specialize in photographing baby bumps and newborns. I also spend a lot of my time photographing families and kids of all ages. I love to meet new people, and most of the time, my clients become friends! At my sessions, we don't say cheese and we don't use fake backgrounds. We have fun and while that's happening, I capture true emotions and expressions!

    Here you will find updates about my business, contests, specials and sneak peeks from photo sessions. In addition, I let you know what's going on in my crazy life. I am married with a son, two dogs and a cat. I also have an adorable niece and two nephews who make appearances on my blog frequently. I update fairly regularly, so you can subscribe via the button on the header or check back often. I absolutely love to receive feedback, so let me know what you think by leaving me a comment or sending me a message via the contact page.

    I hope to hear from you soon! Now sit back, relax and enjoy the view!

Wilmington, NC Newborn Photographer / 2013 Newborns

Happy New Year!! Hope everyone had a nice Christmas too. I can’t believe it’s 2014 – where has the time gone? I guess as you get older time really does go by quicker!  I’ve been meaning to get back to blogging for umm like 2 years? Acck….what a slacker right? haha  I admit it’s easier to just post a couple pics from each session on facebook but I do miss blogging. So gosh darn it I’m going to give it another shot…. let’s see how it goes:) 

First up I wanted to share a collage of the majority of our newborns from 2013. We were so blessed and fortunate to photograph 91 newborns!!! My goal was 96 so I’m pretty stinkin happy with the results. We absolutely loved working with each and every family and loved loving on those babies. I hope 2014 is as fruitful!!

As a thank you, I’m doing a little giveaway on my facebook page for a $200 gift certificate. Go here to read the details: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152113844364462&set=a.425994224461.218221.30055694461&type=1&theater

And here are the beautiful babies!!


2013 Black Friday/Cyber Monday Canvas Sale

Here it is..the 2013 Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale and I’ve decided to go ahead and start it early (today!).  I haven’t done a canvas sale since last year at this time and don’t plan to again for some time.  I have slashed the prices because I love my canvases and want all of my clients to get one (or 10)! So between now and the end of the day Monday, shoot me an email with your canvas orders and I’ll get them processed and delivered in time for Christmas. Makes the perfect gift – grandparents love them!! There is no limit on the quantity you can order and shipping is included in the price!


Wilmington Child and Family Photographer / Fall Mini Sessions 2013

This year I will only be offering 10 appointments and I’ve changed things up a bit from previous years. I’m really excited about it and hope you will be too!

Date: Saturday, October 12, 2013 (Rain date: Sunday, October 13, 2013)

Time/Location:  Morning sessions will be held at the Arboretum
Evening sessions will be held at a still to be determined outdoor location. My vision is to have a field/open area with lots of grass and trees. I will bring a vintage quilt to do some family shots sitting, playing with each other etc. Families will also have the opportunity to use our 1955 Cobalt Blue Chevy pick-up truck as a prop (sit on it, lean on it, have it in the background, etc)  All of these sessions will take place when the light is soft and the sun is coming through the trees! Gorgeous!

Session Includes: 20 minute photography session
10-12 high resolution images, fully edited and presented on a custom cd. You will receive a photo release that allows you to print the images in whatever quantity and size you’d like. (Cds will be mailed to you within 2-4 weeks of the mini session)

Investment: $400

To book: Email kmpminis@gmail.com with your 1st and 2nd choice for your time slot. Appointments will be scheduled in the order they are received.  My assistant Catherine will be managing all of the bookings. You will receive an email within 24 hours notifying you of your time slot and you will also receive an invoice. Half of the fee is due at booking ($200); the remaining is due 30 days prior (on September 12th). Your session is not considered booked until we receive the deposit.

UPDATE:  We only have 5 spots remaining 8:00, 9:00, & 9:20 at the Arboretum; 6:00 and 6:20 at the gorgeous outdoor location!

Other than newborns and 1 year/”Oh Baby,” these are the only sessions I will be doing for the rest of 2013.

Thank you so much!

Wilmington Children’s Photographer / 2013 Spring Mini Sessions

Here it is..what you’ve all been waiting for.. Spring Mini Session info!  Due to the high volume of newborns we are photographing, I will be doing limited “big kid” and family sessions this year. However I will be offering quarterly mini sessions…. so here’s your chance if you need some updated photos! I asked the other day on facebook if you all wanted indoor or outdoor sessions – it was pretty split down the middle so I decided to offer both! Email me to book your mini (katie@katiemathewsphotography.com)
