My name is Katie and I'm a photographer based in Dallas, Texas.
I started my photography business when I was 12 years old. Though I had always loved taking photos, I never thought I could turn my passion into a business...especially at the point in my life where making sure I'd completed my pre-algebra homework was supposed to be my top priority.
So, I was terrified. I was scared of what people would think of my "little photo business". And it took a while to establish a school/business/life balance, stop doubting my abilities, and grow out of my shell. But my go-getter side worked countless hours answering emails, learning how to edit, blogging, bookkeeping, and website-updating...until eventually, I did.
As a young photographer, my approach to business differs from others'. I didn't start my business to make a living...and to this day, I don't see it as "work" at all. I started my business because I love photography. I love that what I do gives me the opportunity to constantly meet new people and step out of my comfort zone. I love preserving authentic moments and telling meaningful stories through imagery.
And through my journey of running a business rooted in love, I've also discovered a passion for educating young creative entrepreneurs. Sharing my story and my knowledge was never an aspect I thought I'd incorporate in my business...but I've come to realize the importance of community and education in the creative industry. I wouldn't be here now if I hadn't been inspired and empowered by the young entrepreneurs who came before me and shared their stories. So, if you're a photographer or creative, I'm here to do the same for you.
Whether you are a bride in the midst of wedding planning, a creative wanting to elevate your brand through imagery, a senior in high school, or a young business-owner who seeks to learn about their craft, you've come to the perfect place.
