MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

I'm Katie a 20-something coffee & carb obsessed senior and lifestyle photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin.  Photography was never a career I had in mind, it was much more of a fun, creative outlet that kept me busy and creative and paid my bill in during college. Little did I know that this hobby and side hustle would turn into a real business and my full time job. My photography story began after graduating high school when I photographed my first class of high school seniors. I hustled in between classes and internships and had many late nights of editing until I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2019. I now run my photography business full time and it is the hardest yet most fulfilling job I’ve ever had. As a self taught photographer I am always feeling inspired to learn from others and continue to grow for myself and for my clients. I can’t wait to meet you!

I'm so glad you're here!

Meet
Katie!

Photographs are quite literally a moment captured in time. Years and years to come, these pictures often hold so much more meaning than ever expected and will be held by generations to come.  I never realized how valuable a photograph could be until I lost my dad to cancer when I was just 13. The ability to look back on these photos and  let memories trickle into my mind, fills mine and my family's hearts. Who knew that physical printed photos could bring someone so much comfort. As a professional photographer now, my goal with every client I work with is to capture authentic, genuine moments, so that for years to come through life's up's and down's they can reflect on their photos and feel joy.

Photography is so much more than just a pretty photos. I truly embrace capturing my clients  exactly as they are, their everyday beauty and authentic personalities. I always encourage my clients to be present and embrace the moments we have while taking photos. Capturing intimate joyous moments are the rawest and most memorable moments. A nice family photo with everyone looking at the camera is always great, but the photos with the kids laughing and making funny faces, is life's reality, and captures exactly who they are! Time flies by, so there is no time to waste. So take the photo, get in the photo and print your photos.

MY WHY


“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”

While most of the time I feel like I am constantly behind the camera, there is a lot more to me than just being a photographer! During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my sweet boyfriend of 9 years, Lucas. I love traveling, buying all the fresh flowers and cheese curds at the farmers market and attending Badger football games!

When I'm not working you can find me at my favorite restaurants with my friends or on my couch with a glass of wine, perfecting a delicious cheese board.
