Meet Kathryn



Hello, my name is Kathryn Bessette, obviously. I am a Mother and Wife first and foremost; and the artist behind the lens at Kathryn Bessette Photography.

My love affair with photography bloomed when I began documenting my growing family after the birth of our first son over five years ago. I wanted to capture his life unfolding…the milestones, the laughter, the joy, the connections, the everyday. Those fleeting things that are important to me as a mother, are also the things that are important to me to capture for you as your photographer. Because of this I love including all those little details into each newborn session. Capturing all their little unique features and being sure your baby is always the focus of each shot. Same goes for families, always seeking to capture the moments, personality, and connections of your family. My own children will always be my muse.
I have spent the last three (+) years learning as much as I can about photography. I have taken classes, workshops and mentoring both in-person and online with some of the best photographers in the industry. I am always striving to reach farther, and will always be investing in myself and my art. I am obsessed with finding light; I am a light chaser. You can take that literal or figuratively. I love warm sun-soaked evenings, sun flairs, and using light in different ways. You will always see it infused in my sessions.

I work to provide authentic, emotive, joyful and timeless heirlooms…Images for you to cherish & will stand the test of time. Images that will honestly help tell your family’s story. Doing so requires several hours before, during, and after each session. Balancing this, with being a Stay-at-home Mom to my three young children, can be a tricky act. Because I want both my family and clients so receive the very best of me, I only book up to six sessions per month. I would love for your family or newborn to be one of them!

That’s enough about me. Now, contact me and tell me a little about you!

♥ Kathryn
