The story of a photographer

I'm a Cincinnati-girl born and raised, and based in Charleston, South Carolina. I began my photography journey at the New York Institute of Photography and Click Photo School, and have recently been recognized as a Click Pro Elite member. I'm so inspired by many photographer friends, and love constantly learning and growing.

I love new adventures, lattes and my people. I love the smell of fresh cut grass and summer rain, and I think it's amazing how details like a certain smell or song can take you right back to a moment in time. Kind of like pictures! Most of all, I love my family and friends big. As an Enneagram 7 and an ENFP, I love the opportunity to meet new people, and you guys - my clients, are the reason I absolutely love what I do.

My passion lies in capturing real emotion and connection through my pictures. I want my pictures to give you that timeless sense of nostalgia. That feeling of living in the good ol' days. Since becoming a mom myself, I have really loved preserving memories for other families. I know how big the small things are when it comes to our little people. I love capturing those sweet in-between moments like holding onto mom's hair, giving eskimo kisses, playful interactions, or snuggling up together. The stuff that matters. The stuff you will want to look back on and remember.

Photography just all around makes my heart happy. And I absolutely love the happiness it brings to my clients. Thank you for letting me be part of capturing your family's story.

“I cannot say enough amazing things about Katie. She is such a great photographer and person. Katie is full of ideas when it comes time for the photo shoot and always involves you in the process. She truly knows how to capture the small moments with your family. And can even make an overcast rainy day turn out beautiful. She creates lifetime memories with her photography. I will always go to Katie for photos of my family!”
