Do you have a photo of yourself that you really love? If you are a business owner, do you have a photo of yourself or your team on your “about us” page?

If the answer to either of those questions is no, let’s change that!

“I have worked with Katie for years and when it came to updating my headshots, working with her was a no-brainer. Her studio is set up to accommodate for any professional setting and allows you to incorporate your personality into the pictures. I honestly could not be more happy with my photos to the point that I had a hard time choosing which one to use and have ended up using different pictures across my professional settings.”

Hi, I’m Katie!

I am an artist & designer at heart and love working creatively with my clients to give them a fun and memorable photography experience. I’ve been working as a full-time photographer for over 15 years. In 2019, I opened a portrait studio after exclusively working on-location for the first part of my career.

My photography style is bright, fun, and timeless.

On a personal note, I love taking care of my 50ish houseplants, maintaining my tropical fish aquariums, and working in my garden in the summer.  I’m also a huge fan of staying in, playing cards with my neighbors, or getting thai food takeout. I enjoy both pilates classes and a good homemade pizza – life is all about balance and enjoying the little things!

I share my home with my husband & kitty Trixie and have enjoyed embracing a minimalist lifestyle that allows me to slow down and enjoy life!

“It always amazes me how Katie can find just the right pose or just the right location to make the picture pop. I have never been disappointed! When it came to my son’s graduation pictures, she was very professional but was also open to making it fun. With her help, my son’s personality was able to shine through.”
