I'm a photographer based in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, specializing in bright, timeless photos with a stress-free experience. It doesn't have to feel awkward in front of the camera. You'll have more fun than you think!

When not behind the camera I can be found with my golden retriever (aka my location scouting assistant), adventuring around Montana or scrolling Pinterest for decor and recipe inspiration.

I'm Katherine

Hey there! 

creating an experience

I first started taking pictures when I was in the first grade and haven't looked back since. Little did I know I would be starting a photography business while in college getting my marketing degree.

It's important to me that the seniors, couples, and personal brands working with me have a great experience! I don't just want my clients feel like they're just booking a session, showing up, and getting photos.

I help my clients prepare for photos and chat with them through the planning process. This includes suggesting locations in the Missoula/Bitterroot Valley area, giving tips for the choosing outfits, a plan of what to bring, and guiding them through flattering posing at their photoshoots.

You deserve to look and feel your best in photos, and stress-free a experience makes all the difference!
