about ME

My name is Kat, and I am a portrait photographer in the Washington, DC Metro area. My work includes editorial, environmental, and wedding portraiture. I also have an interest in conceptual portraiture, exploring constructed realities and whimsical themes through an adult lens. I am inspired by fairy tales, retro fashion, and my own overactive imagination.

My goal for any shoot is to create a portrait that is memorable and reflects back to you an aspect of your personality. I try to bring lightness and joy to any situation, and as a result my clients frequently comment on the fun they had shooting with me. One client mentioned many of her wedding guests appreciated "the photographer that greeted them with a big warm smile."

I attended the Master of Photography program at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and photographed for many years in California before relocating to Frederick, MD, where I currently reside. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Notre Dame.
