the girl behind the camera
Call me Katie
Cause referring to me as KM4 makes me sound like a robot or an app. And addressing me as Katharine Mary the fourth sounds a little too formal for someone who tumbles around with a camera and plays ring-around-the-rosie with kids for a living.
When I went to study abroad in college, I knew my iPhone camera wouldn’t cut it, so I bought my first real camera – after that you couldn’t catch me anywhere without it! I wanted to remember the details of every solo-trip, family gathering, and friend hangout. When a friend asked me to take photos of their little family, I was smitten. Capturing my own life was one thing, but there was something infinitely rewarding about capturing someone else’s.
My family are the most important people in my life, and for a while I lived quite a distance away from them - and this was really hard. Living away from them showed me just how important it is to be connected with my family and to document the precious details of our time together.
Now I’m… for lack of better words…living my best life! I get to do something crazy wonderful for a living and hang out with the cutest families on earth, documenting their memoirs. When I'm not romping around with a camera, you can find me scoping out dogs at the local parks, enjoying a good read, or discussing the pros and cons of every type of French cheese.

You know those few things that really just define you as a person? You know, like your greatest hits? Mine are below. And while I wish I could say I was the kind of girl whose greatest hits include the trendiest new clothes, an immaculate self-care routine, and vegetables, that's just not me. You win some, you lose some, you know?
