Hey! I'm Katie

I'm an easy going, low pressure, story telling photographer.

I capture what life looks like with a happy family and busy kids! My images are natural, relaxed, and filled with light and joy. These elements inspire me the most when working with memory making families. No awkwardness.

As a mom I know what it feels like to watch my kids grow up way too fast. And I also know that most people are disappointed when the picture on their phone just “doesn’t do it justice.”

and That’s my why - to capture what matters most to you in a beautiful and emotive way. 

I've always been drawn to photography and print design. I love creating custom albums for my clients and seeing the work we create together in print. I started my photography business about 7 years ago and I thoroughly enjoy everyone I get to meet and work with.

Capturing relationships & personalities

My process of family pictures is simple and straight forward. I’ll help you with wardrobe styling before the session, and print design and display after the session. And you can trust me to handle crazy kids and (sometimes) cranky dads at the shoot!

The photos will only mean something to you if you have a good experience at the session. That’s why I direct you the entire time and bring the fun, so you can relax and soak up your amazing family.
