My Background As a Lifestyle newborn + Family Photographer

My experience

Katie did an amazing job capturing our family during our newborn session! She was more than willing to help style our spaces and was a pro at including our beloved dog! We couldn’t be happier with the many photos she delivered in our gallery and will treasure having this season captured forever.

Katie was such a great photographer to work with! I hired her for a simple headshot for business style photos and she was very thorough in making sure my photos came out perfect! The session went smooth and quick and we had some good laughs along the way. The photos were stunning!! Will definitely be coming to her again.
