Ava and I love to go to local parks and farms in the area to have some adventures in the fresh air and sunshine. We also love a good Target run and trip to Chick-fil-a in nearby East Louisville.

Documenting my own memories has led to a passion to tell other family's stories. From your pregnancy, to your newborn baby's tiny toes, to your toddler's sweet giggles, to your teenager's senior year of high school, let me journey with your family through life and tell your stories through my lens. Please reach out so we can chat about your vision for your session.

Your newborn & family Photographer

Hi, I'm Katie

am so excited you're here! I'm a maternity, newborn, family, and senior photographer residing in Shelbyville, KY with my daughter Ava and husband Brent.






say hello

When I had my daughter I picked up my first professional camera and with much study and practice this passion blossomed into a desire to create beautiful images for other families as well as mine.

One thing I always regretted was not having many photos of my maternal grandmother who passed when I was only 4 years old. She did not like to be photographed so there are very few photos of her. That has stirred my passion to make sure myself and all mamas get out from behind the camera and get in the photos! Your children will be so glad to have those memories some day!

've always loved photos, as a child I always had a camera to document life's moments.


A Look into my

My daughter Ava is a spunky almost 5 year old and my husband Brent is a corn, soybean, and cattle farmer. We enjoy spending time on our land in Shelbyville, Kentucky and also going on adventures near and far. The beach is a particularly happy place for us! As an only child myself, I am very close to my parents, and they're the best Mam-maw and Pap-paw to Ava!

"Katie is amazing! She has done two photoshoots for my family and has been able to capture beautiful photos of my 3 young kids (no small feat). She is responsive to requests, polite, professional, and warm."


"Do not hesitate to book with Katie! We've shopped around for many years to find the perfect family photographer and I am so happy I found Katie! She goes above and beyond to get the best photos, wrangles my crazy toddlers (and dog) and the product she delivers is more than I could have imagined! We've had 3 friends/family book with her because they've loved our pictures so much. Do yourself a favor and book your session now!"


"We absolutely loved our pictures and Katie made our experience great! She was also very accommodating as when we needed to change around dates due to weather or other issues! I would definitely recommend her!!"
