hello & welcome

My name is Katie. I am a lifestyle and documentary photographer serving the Philadelphia area and I would love to photograph your family. Yes, I love when the light is just right, the leaves are painted with fall, and the colors of my subject’s eyes complements the green in the trees. But to me, what makes a picture prettiest is the true beauty of the moment. I want to hear your kids giggle and see their eyes light up with joy. What I aim to capture is the ordinary and extraordinary day-to-day beauty in your family, whether the backdrop is cloudy or the living room is messy. I can’t wait to get to know you and those you love, just as you are.
