My view

Welcome to 'Bird's Eye View'!

When I was 18 my father handed me a Nikon and told me to get in the car. We drove through sleepy little Iowa towns and down winding gravel roads. He started me on what will be a life long journey of seeing the world through the lens of my camera.

To me photography is an art. The art of capturing a moment or a natural expression is what I love to do. I will give you direction and then find your personality within that pose.

What I see through my lens is no different than what you see every day - the only difference is I have the ability to stop time and provide you with those memories.

Contact me at katie (dot) reints (at) gmail (dot) com to inquire about a session.

...or find me on facebook!

Thank you

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.


It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.


It is the Soldier, not the poet

Who has given us freedom of speech.



It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer

Who has given us freedom to protest.



It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.


It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.




It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

-Charles Michael Province, U.S. Army

Picture of the day: Water balloon fight




Project 365, failed

Well... it seems that I have not been able to keep up with my project 365. The addition of a full time job and summer activities have overcome me.

So-- I am going to mirror a friend and call my posts, 'Picture of the day.'

That way, maybe my photos will morph into a Project 52 or something....

Project 365: Day 128 Fun in the Sun


This is the cheesy grin I get when I 'ask' them to smile....
