P E R S P E C T I V E . “I wonder what the world looks like from the bottom step of the back porch?” . “Do you think baby mosquitos have cute faces?” . “Were some dinosaurs sparkly?” . “Probably a ladybug would want to live in a tiny house I made for her, right?” . “I wonder if hamsters like cheetos?” . One of the things I am drawn most to in family photography is play. The thing that children do when they can do ANYTHING they choose. What games do they invent and worlds will they create? What burning questions are they curious to know about unicorns and salamanders? . I long for all of us to have more photographs of kids being kids. Of adults lost in play. Photographs that show our lives unguarded, rich with honesty, messy and full of love. Those are the things I am looking for when I document a day in the life of a family. My desire here in this space is to shift the perspective on what is desirable in the photography we invest in. Do we want only to have memories of our lives where everyone is in matching outfits, forcibly smiling in the same direction, standing in a field we have never been to in our entire lives? I hope not. Do we want our children to think the only thing we value is when they are clean, dressed, pressed, and obedient? I hope not. I so look forward to continuing to share more work in this vein. Perhaps it may even remind us “grown ups” to find a fresh perspective and get lost in play every now and again. Have you heard any fun questions or statements from a kid lately?? . . . . . #dayinthelife #documentaryfamilyphotography #documentaryfamilyphotographer #kathrynkruegerphotography #childhood #childhoodunplugged #familylife #familypictures #childhoodeveryday #documentyourdays

🎉 Wow! Hi everyone! Some of you (most of you 😉, haha!) are new to my feed & it seems a fresh introduction & few ramblings are in order. If we haven't met, introduce yourself below so we can connect in this online ocean. I'm Kathryn Krueger, owner of @KathrynKruegerPhotography & the dreamboat of a dachshund that is Punkin. Waco, TX has been my home for the last 17 years (I mean whoa) but Chicago, IL is my hometown. And pretty soon I hope to be in Ghent, Belgium most of the year. Yes, I know @joannagaines + @chipgaines & yes, they are even more wonderful in real life. In fact, I live in one of their darling homes & it is simply the best. (Everyone asks, so let's just get that out of the way). . The above image I *may have* spammed you w/ already as it truly was the first "perfect hair day" of my whole life. I REALLY DID wake up like that. I'm no astrologist but at a bare minimum Jupiter + Mars aligned with the 2nd star from the right & some sort of Neverland-Harry-Potter-Wizardy struck & this was the fabulous result. I wouldn't say I felt 100% like Bey, but at least as good as one of her back up dancers. I counted how many selfies it took to get this shot (seize the day and capture that magic, am I right?!) & obviously it took 42 shots. Of course I was laughing by myself in my studio on a Saturday morning in front of a white wall. No shame. Knowing who you are and what you are made for is the journey we are all on. Thus far I can tell you that living, observing, & telling stories is everything I am about. In my business this manifests primarily through photographs (which you can check out more of on my site-link in profile). At my studio, we believe in the deep beauty & connectedness all people possess & showing through photos who they love & who loves them. This feed is dedicated to my professional work, with a few personal tidbits sprinkled around. You can follow my personal account @kathrynkrueger . I'll keep food pics to a minimum (doesn't apply to insta-stories, sorry folks!), ensure thoughtful content, & include only *the best* cliche inspirational quotes. Thanks for getting to know me a bit! xo

Holiday sessions are open, booking now, and coming up FAST! The steam from my coffee mug is warming me from the inside out and a goofy smile is on my face as I look at so many of your familiar, beloved faces. I absolutely adore this time of year! Obviously because the 90-degree days are at least mostly gone, but also because my favorite annual studio event, The Holiday Session Sale, is close at hand. This means I get to see so many of you, live and in person. See how your families have grown, meet your new babies, finally have that long awaited convo with your first babies who are now talking up a storm, and generally take in all the growth the year has brought. I would love to have you join me, catch up, and make some incredible photographs of this time in your lives. All the details and booking link in profile. xoxo . . . . . . @kathrynkruegerphotography #holidaysessionswaco #familyportraitswaco #holidayfamilypictures #wacoisawonderland #wacophotography #wacofamilyphotography #holidayminisessionstexas #wacotown #kathrynkruegerphotography

These two. My stars. After I met them I was certain my next life goal was to become Persian. Alas, even at the end of summer I remain as overtly Irish as ever. But a girl can dream. . Stop by the blog to see the full set of images. Avoid the post at all cost if you are adverse to sexy, stylish, playful romance. . Spoiler: there are white dresses and this amazing blue jacket and this isn't even the wedding yet 🙇🏻‍♀️ (the wedding with its royal blue tux and Grecian crown on the way soooon. 😍) . Happy Friday everyone! . . . @kathrynkruegerphotography #kathrynkruegerphotography #bestdallasengagementpictures #bestdallasphotographer #texasphotographer #dallasengagement #persianwedding #persianweddingphotographer

When I first meet @YvesSchepers he was wearing a yellow plastic jumpsuit covered in black stripes and throwing himself through a bounce castle covered in velcro. He was the biggest kid at the party. Even since that first meeting my heart knew it was written for Yves to be a dad. . Nathalie and I met for the first time this past spring in Antwerp when she was already 6 months pregnant. Her warmth and kindness made so comfortable in a country not my own. She endured having her hair "styled" by two under-10s with the patience only a mother could have. 😂 . This summer I had the honor of taking a few maternity photos for these two gems just 3 days before their little girl's arrival. It was a quiet night full of delicate light and deep forests. Today I will travel to their home to meet this little lady for the first time. How sweet it has been to witness this journey for their family and celebrate it with them. Congrats Yves and Nathalie! . #maternityphotos #charlottelewis #kathrynkruegerphotography #gentphotographer #gentbelgium #maternityportraits @kathrynkruegerphotography @kathrynkrueger
