"A dream you dream together is reality."
I'm Katie, but some people call me Kate.
How it started…
After I graduated with a degree in psychology I worked at a detox clinic, and spent a lot of my free time creating art with my camera. This creative time was my outlet; it gave me time to decompress and help process my daily interactions. I thought my calling was to become a certified counselor, but as time went on I longed for something more. I soon made the connection that I can use my talent to help bring happiness into many peoples’ lives. Fast forward six years and here I am, connecting with people through the art of photography, and helping people appreciate what life has given them thus far while documenting some of life’s greatest milestones.
The quirky side…
I’m an INFJ through and through. I get a lot of joy from helping and connecting with people.
An intimate dinner party with friends and family and getting lost in deep, meaningful conversation is my love language. Family and close friends mean everything to me, and I'm blessed to have the people I do in my life.
I have a moo-cat named Thaddeus. I take him for leisurely walks on a leash, and for some odd reason the neighbors look the other direction and try not to make eye contact.
I'm sarcastic but always in a lighthearted way.
Traveling makes my heart happy; especially when I'm accompanied by my other half, Mike. We both hope to someday explore Iceland’s beautiful countryside.
I’m indecisive when it comes to choosing between wine and a good craft beer, but if you offer me gin, well, gin takes the cake (Hendrick's all the way!).
If I could eat one thing every day it would be nachos with extra jalapenos. I have a mild addiction to spicy food.
The photographer side…
I thrive on personally connecting with clients and photographing something new, especially when challenged by unique architecture or natural landscapes. I enjoy anything from a small, backyard wedding where a couple is surrounded by their closest family members and friends, to a more modern city wedding with an upbeat vibe. From breathtaking landscapes to vast city skylines I’m inspired by it all.
Creating something that’s beautiful and a true representation of you is what I strive to do, and this is why my art reaches beyond awkward poses and forced smiles. If you're a person who is drawn to photographs that portray natural interactions, intimate moments, and genuine smiles, and who will allow yourself to be vulnerable and show me who you are, then I know we'll be a splendid match.
