Hi. I'm Katie.
I have been taking photos professionally since 2016. In addition to photography, I spent 10 years working in the construction industry, which I believe in many ways shaped the kind of photographer I wanted to become - someone who remains in awe of the magnitude and culmination of what people can do. I see a structure and think to myself: "people built this", and it never ceases to amaze me. I believe perspective is everything, and my curiosity for life has made me fearless of trying just about anything in an effort to gain it. What I enjoy photographing is texture and honesty, regardless of the medium. I like to take what's real and make the ordinary look extraordinary. How a shot is framed can transform the way a person views the world, and if you're lucky, how they feel about it as well.
When I'm not wearing my photographer "hat", I am a wife, mom, gardener, golfer, copywriter, jazz vocalist, avid pressure-washer, and french-bulldog lover. I love the stage, and I love getting my boots dirty. I have a Bachelors's in Music Composition from Central Washington University, I always tip at least 20%, and I am in the business of people taking care of people. I am the most organized, efficient, high-strung, and notwithstanding (but most importantly) laid-back creative you will ever meet. I genuinely get along with pretty much everyone and have never met a four-letter word I didn't like.
