My name is Katie. I’m a wife and a mama. And I’m usually seen with a camera in my hand. My husband, Brandon, is my best friend and partner in life. We have three kiddos – Oscar, Charlotte (Charlie), and Ben. We love to spend our weekends snuggling, watching movies, and laughing. (We laugh loudly and often.) In the summer of 2017, we relocated from Indianapolis, IN to Rockville, MD and have met some great people along the way.
A bit about me: I love coffee and wine. And there’s a good chance I’m currently drinking one or the other, binge-watching Friends for the millionth time, and editing photos. I prefer the cool, crisp autumn days when it’s overcast, windy, and that beautiful blue-grey color fills the sky. Cozy sweaters and yoga pants are my jam. Brunch is the best meal of the day (because it’s just breakfast, later). My family is my crazy, messy, very loud world – and I wouldn’t change a thing.
About my work: I strive to capture life as it happens. A session with me is not the typical everyone-smile-at-the-camera session. It’s about you and your family being together. It’s about seeing your baby stretch and yawn, and curl her tiny fingers around yours. It’s about catching that gleam in your son’s eye while he plays with his favorite toy train. It’s about seeing your 3-yr old daughter twirl in her favorite dress and mismatched tights (because she can choose her own outfits now). It’s about noticing how your partner is the only one who makes you smile your best smile. But most importantly, it’s about capturing your togetherness – how you laugh, and snuggle, and wrestle, and make each other happy even when you’re exhausted, crazy-busy, and likely wearing a shirt that has some sort of mess on it. I get it. I’m a hot mess, myself.
