Welcome to Timeline Photos. A few years back I started peeking around my archives in search of some of the first photographs I had taken. Here records my quest into better understanding my long term love of camera and experiencing the world with it in hand. All photos appear in chronological order hopefully revealing an evolution of how I see and what moves me to speak with light.

This beautiful white fence sat along the driveway of the old Ford farm.  Once the property was purchased for development, the fencing was completely taken down.  I knew that was going to happen when I pulled into the drive for this shot.  It rarely snows by us, so this is definitely a keeper.

Bob Thibodeaux's Acorns of Hope - My first published images

Louisiana Homes & Gardens published 3 of my photos in their article about Bob Thibodeaux's Acorns of Hope. I don't have access to the acorn photo they used, but the one below is similar. It's exciting to see "Photographed by Irene Kato" in the magazine.

I was fortunate to attend, with my husband,  Juliens Auctions "Icons of Music II" at the Hard Rock Cafe in NYC. It was a successful night for Music Rising, and we really appreciated our time with fellow New Orleans supporters. :)

Thank you Music Rising! http://musicrising.org.  //
