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!

Just so you know, I have NOT fallen off the face of the earth!! 🙂  It’s just been a crazy, busy summer that my poor blog has been ignored.  I am finally posting images from a session I had a while back with three gorgeous young ladies.  They were so wonderful to photograph.  🙂  Hope your summer is going well!

    esther alvarez - Hola Kate! Hace mucho tiempo que no te escribo. Ya te echaba de menos. Muy bonitas las fotos, como siempre. Un saludo. Esther

So what have we been up to these past hot days of June????  Art camp which the kiddos have LOVED!!!  Thank you Artist at Heart!!! We have had many trips to the local swimming pool, Great America and downtown Chicago and lots of ice cream at the Tastee Freeze. Of course we couldn’t forget to include our pup Millie Mae!  Doesn’t she look thrilled to be sporting her “circus afro”?? 🙂

If you are wondering what that white and yellow object is (in the second row), it’s the beginning stages of the kid’s lemonade stand.  They can’t wait till it’s done!  I have pinterest to thank for that idea.  🙂

Inspiration for doing an instagram photo dump is from the fabulous blog (which is so worth checking out) Enjoying The Small Things….

I’m dying to put together a super fun stand, yours will make me smile for HOURS! Hurry! :):) can’t wait to see you all in a couple weeks. xoxoxoxoxx

    Km - I am anxiously and happily awaiting the OWLS!!!!!! I only got a quickie on IG and I can’t wait to see all the pics!

WOW!!!  I have been such a bad blogger lately…it seems that my crazy life has gotten the better of me and blogging hasn’t been quite a priority.  Of course you can always keep up with me via facebook (I am always up to date there) and for fun you can follow me on instagram…I am katebogo  .   I am going to try to be better about updating my blog…. 😉

Anyway….here is a GORGEOUS young lady that I had the pleasure of photographing recently….

    Chelsey - She’s adorable – & yes, summer always seems to up the ante – hard to find time to do anything when we are always on the go so much with work, life & play! Happy Summer to you & the kids!

    km - these are OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so glad we are instagram together… because otherwise I would never get to “see” you! These photos were worth the wait. :):) totally worth the wait!!

  • June 27, 2012 - 10:00 am

    Ross - Such a beautiful young girl! Your pictures of her are nothing short of stunning as well. Hope that your doing well.

So you would think this week’s theme would be “simple” enough to complete but sadly I just didn’t have the time to get out and shoot my “simple” theme.  I am pulling one from the session I had last week with my favorite girl.  🙂

Be sure to check out Carrie Hyche – Wheatland, WY photographer from Heart of the West for her beautiful take on “Simple”.  🙂

    Km - Come back soon because I am missing you guys sooo much!!!!

For this week’s theme I took my favorite “colorful” muse out to for a photo shoot…  Well I have to say that these are not the most “colorful” but I do love the feel of them and I just adore her “colorful” personality!  Since we had such a good time with this session I will be sharing lots more  in the next few days. 🙂

    http://laanpengenu.info - I have read so many content on the topic of the blogger lovers
    however this post is genuinely a fastidious piece of writing, keep it up.

  • September 10, 2013 - 2:20 pm

    internet bookmakers - Right here is the perfect site for anybody who really wants to understand this topic.

    You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that has been discussed for a long time.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!

What can I say????  The last two weeks I have been a bit of a “slacker” when it comes to the 52 week challenge….I am blaming it on the 50 Shades of Grey books! 😉 Needless to say the photos I took for this week’s challenge did not get edited in time so I am using two from this fall for our theme of “Fruit”…..

** just an F.Y.I….if you decide to read the 50 Shades of Grey series be prepared for some pretty “steamy” reading! LOL! 😉

Now go check out the fabulous Elizabeth McDonough of Elizabeth McDonough Photography from North Carolina for her beautiful take on this weeks challenge!

    how to remove black skin from neck - I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Santiago - – What a great story, and what a gorgeous cmarea. I’m sure you were fine with the cupboard and it is more than likely the cmarea letting light in but it just adds character.The Hipstamatic app is fun but it never competes with this.I hope you’ll shoot more.March 6, 2012 1:38 pm
