 Children’s photographer Kat Foley knows all about the benefits of on-location portraiture, but she also knows it’s nice to have an alternative once in a while.

When planning in-home newborn portrait sessions — one of the most popular aspects of her business — she has found that many new moms and dads spend so much time cleaning and worrying about how their house looks that they can’t really enjoy the experience.

But worry no more: Foley is bringing her unique style of children’s portraiture to a brand new studio in downtown Saline.

“I still offer the children's natural outdoor experience that I have been known for, but now I have a great space to welcome clients for their newborn shoots,” Foley said.

New parents don’t need to worry about pricing, either. Foley offers newborn por-trait sessions for free for babies younger than 10 days old. “I love newborn photos and the honor of documenting a new life is the greatest honor of all,” she said. “[So] I am beyond thrilled to do that for new parents.”

And after being in business for 10 years and dreaming of opening a studio one day, Foley is beaming about the new space. “My dreams have certainly come true,” she said. "My life is good because it is filled with wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell, and I'm just the lucky one that gets to photograph it.”

Kat Foley's studio had its grand opening on May 20, and is located at 131 E. Michigan Avenue, Suite A. For more information, visit
