Katie is available for shoots in Los Angeles, Anaheim, Ventura, and Santa Barbara as well as 2 hour minimum bookings in Orange County
I was born and raised in Southern California and can't imagine living anywhere else. I enjoy taking images that are candid and photojournalistic in nature. I strive to capture emotion and the true spirit of my subjects. I have a Masters degree in Education, and I am a former 2nd and 3rd grade teacher. I love being around children and helping them grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
- One of my favourite pastimes is decorating. Making a space cozy and beautiful is right up my alley.
- I can't live without almond butter! It's just so crunchy and delicious.
- My friends tell me I'm brave and adventurous. I taught abroad at an elementary school in Vietnam for a year and was able to travel throughout Asia during that time. It was my very first job out of college!
Favourite Place to Shoot in LA
I love to shoot on 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica - close to restaurants, shopping, and the beach!
