My mom’s father was a photographer. He died before I was born, but I have several of his photographs framed and hanging on my walls. So I guess you could say “it’s in my genes”. I’ve always loved photography, but began my “official” journey to this career, and this business about six years ago. In early 2015, I finished my Bachelor’s degree in photography, with a minor in print media. Not that a degree is necessary when you own your business, but gosh did it feel nice to see all my hard work pay off!
In the past several years I’ve learned that I have a particular gift that is instrumental to my business. Somehow I’m able to quickly see a person’s true being. Their soul, their energy, their zest for life and love for their family and friends. It’s really cool to feel like I know someone so well only shortly after meeting them for the first time. But the best part is being able to photograph the beauty that I see in them.
So that’s a brief introduction about where I am on my journey called life. I recognized my talents, spent time educating myself about photography, business and design, started my business and now I’m busy capturing my view of the world and the beautiful souls in it. (and teaching others how to, also!) Now I am developing my artistic skills and expanding into commissioned artwork as well!
I’d like to be your personal photographer.
Let’s talk about it.

“What an amazing job by Katy!! Our 2.5 month old little girl had her first photo session and the moments that Katy was able to capture are amazing! So incredibly talented and extremely helpful, patient and just incredible to work with through the entire process! We can’t express how happy we are with our experience and are so excited to hang these beautiful pictures in our home!” - Brittany O.
“Katy came in and seemed like an old friend. She was so down to earth but you can tell this is her life’s passion. She is punctual, her work is amazing, and she’s absolutely meticulous about all the little details. Can’t recommend her enough!“ - Maddie V.
“Katy was an exceptional photographer to work with!! Her pictures captured my daughters’ true light that comes from within. Her photos are not staged, they are more “in the moment”. That is what sets her apart from all others!! I cannot sing her praises enough.” - Corrine C.
“Katy is amazing! She has done all of our photos since the birth of our son. I would highly recommend her! She knows how to engage our special needs son, even when he doesn’t want to participate in photos.” - Kim B.
