Hello! I'm Katherine!
I am a recent graduate of the University of Montana with degrees in Management Information Systems and Marketing.
I am a born and raised Montanan, turned Coloradan, then back again.
I am currently located in Missoula, MT.
Believe it or not, I got into photography when I was about four years old! I asked Santa for a camera for Christmas, and he gave me a lovely Barbie disposable camera. That being said, I am actually a model turned photographer! My passion for photography really started on the other side of the lens, watching photographers and mentors create, and being lucky enough for them to share their experiences and methods.
I am passionate about photography and love creating lasting memories for others. I especially love working with young women, especially. The most rewarding part of photography for me is hearing others say how confident and beautiful my photos make them feel. I love to bring out the beauty in others, especially for those who don't always see it.
I firmly believe that photography is about more than just getting a good picture. I believe that photography is about capturing the emotions of the moment and creating something that is unique, beautiful, and honest.
If you're looking for serious, hard core editing where you are unrecognizable,
I might not be the best match for you. We're all about authenticity and integrity here!
Outside of photography, I enjoy spending time with my eight-year-old rescue mutt, Zeus (more about him below), book binding, and reading romantasy novels and fanfics (#Dramione for Life). I also love jamming out on my guitar and singing very loudly!
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
As a bit of a social introvert, I know how awkward reaching out can feel, but I promise I don't bite. Creating a safe, comfortable relationship is very important to me! It helps us create the best experience possible together.
I look forward to creating with you!
What Do You Use To Edit?
I mostly use Lightroom, though I am branching out to Photoshop.
Do You Shoot
In A Studio?
I can, (if you don't mind my garage), but I prefer to shoot on-location! I feel like it brings more personality to the moment & I'm all about natural light!
Do You Use?
I use the Canon 5D Mark IV
and the Canon 5D Mark III
What Lenses Do You Shoot With?
My favorites are the Canon 24-70mm 2.8, Canon 70-200mm 2.8, and the Sigma 35mm 1.4.

My Bucket List
I really want to see the world. I absolutely love experiencing different cultures and seeing everything the world has to offer.
So far I have been lucky enough to go to Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bali, England, Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, and Portugal.
My top 5 on my Bucket List are Australia, Scotland, Japan, Switzerland, & Egypt, though I plan to get as many countries as possible checked off my list.
If you asked me to, I would switch careers and happily argue that I am a professional eater in a heartbeat!
Food gives me life. Literally. I mean, water, too. But mostly food.
It is my life's mission to eat as many foods as possible.
Starting with every cheese ever... I love cheese.
My current favorite way to eat cheese is my famous Huckleberry, Truffle, and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
In case I didn't mention that I. love travel, I do, and being outdoors goes hand in hand with that!
When time allows, catch me adventuring around Montana in my Chevy Colorado, Shadowmere - yes, I named my truck after a horse from my favorite video game. If you know, you know. Nothing beats a night in the rooftop tent with a good campfire, and even better friends.
One of my favorite things about living in Missoula is how close we are to so many hotsprings! Goldbug, Quinns, Fairmont... even Nimrod on a warm day.
I'll tell you my favorite hot springs locations, if you tell me yours!
I know, my millennial is showing. Buuuut... this is my fur baby, Zeus, and he is my world.
We met in the Spring of 2015. "Dale" was found on the side of the road in
New Mexico in a box at a young age. A former coworker, Cameron, mentioned that he was fostering two puppies that he thought I might be interested in.
I went over to meet these puppies, and when I saw Dale, it was love at first sight!
After a small name change, Zeus came straight home with me, and we've been best friends ever since.
His favorite snuggle buddy is his bear, he loves scritches behind his left ear, and his favorite way to lay is on his back with his paws covering his face!
Special Tricks include the following:
Command: Sit, Zeus' Reaction: Rolls Over
Command: Lay Down, Zeus' Reaction: Rolls Over
Command: Roll Over, Zeus' Reaction: Rolls Over
In case you can't tell, he is very passionate about rolling over, and I fully believe is supporting his passions, so yes, he will get a treat for effort, always.
