portrait session details


I love to creatively use light, location, and connection to create storytelling images of people and families. My sessions are fun, quick, and flow easily.


First we get the "must have" shots, smiling and looking at the camera. And then I encourage kids to explore and play. I direct parents and siblings in little games, I say goofy things, and pull out all those natural giggles and interactions. No awkward posing or forced smiles.


SEE IT AS A NIGHT OUT WITH YOUR FAMILY, AND THEN RELAX AND HAVE FUN.


In home sessions take place in the comfort of your own home where you can relax, kick off your shoes, and have a snack if you want. I find that most of my clients love capturing their home and a slice of what daily life looks like at this time in their lives.


All newborn sessions are in home, and include images of just the baby, baby and family, the nursery, and other sweet little details.

Special events, personal projects, celebrations, day in the life... There's so much to capture! If you have something else in mind, I'd love to here about it.

“We've hired Katie three times now for family pictures and we keep going back. She is a very talented photographer!

With five young kids the sessions are crazy through my mothering eyes but she is constantly reassuring me that they'll turn out and they ALWAYS have! I don't know how she does it but I'm always impressed!

Katie is very easy to work with, communicative, patient, and kind.”
