My grandparents had a willow tree. It sat at the corner of the yard near the driveway and there was a stone bench underneath it. My earliest memories are of sitting on that bench, the branches of that tree hanging down. It was a magical place filled with love and laughter. I wish I had photos of those summer afternoons spent under that tree.
The name is Katie, I love St. Louis, my favorite color is green and I've never met a cookie that I haven't loved. When I'm not behind the camera, I can usually be found at home with my handsome husband, our son, two oversized dogs, and two crazy kittens. We just added chickens and ducks to the mix! I love baking, exploring, kitchen dance parties, and counting stars. I enjoy playing my music too loud while I edit, gardening, and sunshine.
I could tell you that I've been a photographer for well over fifteen years now. I could tell you how much I love my cameras. I could mention all of the famous people I've photographed over the years, or any number of things related to why you ended up here on my site. You already know those things. Instead, I'm going to tell you that I can write my name with either hand, I can remember hundreds of song lyrics but not what I had for dinner last night, and I love waking up before the sun.
Being a photographer is as much about forming a personal connection as it is the technical side of things. Every soul has a light, every heart has a story. Let me tell yours.
