you’re a brand new mom,

so proud and in love with your beautiful creation.

You know that your fuzzy, sleep-deprived brain cannot be relied upon to remember all this - despite that coffee in your other hand.

You want to remember what he looked like, felt like, and smelled like the first time you laid eyes on him. And you just need photographs that capture his essence, announce her, and keep those memories close to your heart!

Oh, you’re in just the right place, mama!

That’s where I come in. 

Portland newborn photographer, extraordinaire!

I’m Katie, and I specialize in newborn photography for those who never want to forget this sweet and fleeting stage. I’m your gal with over ten years of experience ready to create photos of your new baby, so you are sure to remember everything.

Most days you can find me with my hair in a messy bun, running to and fro keeping my four kiddos happy, photographing babies, editing, and wearing all the hats that keep my business running smoothly. Hopefully, with a cold brew (sweetened with cream!) close at hand.

I’m a mama via adoption and remarriage. So all together we’ve got a second grader, two kindergartners, and a preschooler running this roost. I love being a working mom!

I have an insatiable affinity for mid-century modern furniture and I probably love asparagus way more than your average gal.

I also love:
• binge watching stand up comedy on Netflix
• emojis and exclamation points
• Christmas music
• wine tasting through our gorgeous Willamette Valley
• thrifting
• Stumptown coffee

The things I love that remind me I am growing older in years: blankets, bookstores, and my garden.

I have an artistic eye; a penchant and intuition for composition, color, and detail. After working in architectural firms for three years, I made photography my full-time career starting in 2009. I have photographed hundreds of newborn babies over the last 11 years and

"Katie made me feel so comfortable..."

My friend recommended Katie and after looking at her website, I fell in love with the beautiful aesthetic of her work. Her portfolio is filled with natural baby poses - no weird giant flowers or other strange props. Her styling was pretty and soft and filled with the neutral colors that I really loved. 

Katie was easy to work with - clearly very experienced with babies and making parents feel comfortable. It’s been a few months since our shoot, and I look back at these newborn photos often. I know I will always treasure them! I am so happy that I have so many beautiful photos of my sweet baby to cherish for years to come.
