Kate Bogot Photography bio picture
  • Hi there!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!  My name is Kate Bogot. I am a mom to three fabulous kids who happens to be a natural light photographer in the Chicagoland area.  I specialize in newborns, babies, children, families and high school seniors.

    My blog is where you will find lots of photos of my kiddos as well as photos from recent sessions and the latest news from Kate Bogot Photography.

    I would love to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment!

    Please be respectful of copyright laws and do not copy or download any images without Kate's permission. Thanks so much!

I am definitely NOT a winter person….these images make me long for warm, sunny days.  At least the groundhog did NOT see his shadow today so only 4 more weeks until spring right????  😉

    Ross - What amazing photos! She sure has grown. You certainly have a special talent when it comes to portraits!

Back in August we had a Harry Potter party for Miss Izzy.  Unfortunately my photos didn’t turn out too great due to the fact that I was hosting the party.  🙂  The kiddos had fun decorating their own magic wands, creating new potions, making their own crystal balls and eating lots of fun treats.  Overall I think Miss Izzy had a very magical birthday!

A big thank you to Events By Kate for helping me with the fun sweet table and potions details for the party!

    general electric servis istanbul - Very great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to mention that I have really loved
    surfing around your blog posts.

A few weeks ago the kiddos had a lemonade stand to raise money for the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue & Adoption.  Although our little pug Millie came from a breeder,we love pugs and wanted to help such a great organization.  The lemonade stand was a success and the kiddos had a great time!  🙂
