About

Well before the birth of my own two children began my passion for photography. I was a child myself when I started to capture images using my parents Nikon 35mm camera.

I studied and majored in photography at Loyola University of Chicago and in 1999 I officially started my photography business in the Cleveland area. Even though I’ve had many opportunities to work on other projects I choose to only photograph newborns, babies, children and families.

Hello, I’m Katherine!

Credentials & Experience

european adventure

In college, I spent 6 amazing months studying in Italy and got to travel all over Europe! 

fav food

My favorite food is an Italian beef sandwich from the world famous Portillo’s in Chicago.

white water rafting anyone?

After I graduated from college I spent the summer in Crested Butte, Colorado and took photos of people white water rafting! I also figured out that I didn’t want to be an adventure photographer!

cleaning is my therapy

Whenever I’m stressed I like to clean to take my mind off of things and as a bonus I have a very clean house and studio!

We strive to keep things simple but customize the session to you and your family.

Inquire and Book

Everything begins with a little conversation. Let’s connect and discuss exactly what you envision for your session and what you want to take home as far as keepsakes. I want to hear all about your family and plan all the details for your dream session. We will then be able to provide information and options to celebrate whatever milestone you are wanting to commemorate. We’ll finalize your date and I’ll send you an invoice for the session fee and contract.

step two

For maternity and newborn sessions we will have a curated wardrobe available for all our mamas. This saves time and hassle of finding something to wear! If doing a studio newborn session, we will also decide the color scheme of the wraps and backdrops we use. Don't worry, we are here to answer all the questions to put your mind at ease and create a stress-free environment and experience. If we’re doing an outdoor session we will discuss locations that work specifically for your family and plan a meeting spot.
