A little about me


Where are you based?

I'm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, but I'll travel basically anywhere! Love love love exploring new places! If you're thinking of taking your photoshoot in another state or overseas, please get in touch so we can chat about the finer details.

I don't know how to pose, help!

Not to worry! I'll direct you the whole time. Take a deep breath, relax and just have some fun!

How many photos will I receive?

The average amount I send depends on the package you choose. Please reach out to so we can discuss which package will work best for you!

How will I receive my photos?

Most of my packages will receive an online gallery where you can then download the images. Other options include Dropbox, Google Drive, FileMail, WeTransfer, or whatever works best for you based on what we discuss!

How long will it take to receive my photos?

Most of my set packages will receive sneak peeks within a few days, then the full gallery within 30 days. For custom packages, we will discuss turnaround time. I put a lot of love and care into perfecting each image, which is why it'll take me a little bit more time to deliver your final images. If you'd like your photos sooner, please ask me about the rush fee.

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes, I normally split your payments into two installments. Let me know if you need more and we can work something out!

Can I print my photos?

Of course, I'd love for you to print your favorite photos! You can easily order photo prints through your online gallery.

What if I have to Reschedule My Portrait Session?

Life is complicated and the unexpected is to be expected. If you want to reschedule, the retainer and all fees already paid can be applied towards one new date within four months. If rescheduling again, a rescheduling fee of 30% the package price will be required to reserve a new date within four months. 

I don't want My photos on social media

These are photos of you, so if you are uncomfortable with your photos being shared on my social media platforms, I will respect that. I also have the option for you to choose the images you are comfortable with me sharing and I will stick to those!

If you're looking for a seamless, easy session but still expect great, creative photos - look no further. Katy was super communicative and was easy to get ahold of - and when the day came to shoot, she was clearly an expert; able to direct me in ways I needed to get the best photos. I would highly recommend working with her!




I had an amazing experience shooting my branding photos with Katy! She made me feel comfortable and confident from the beginning and kept me smiling and laughing the whole time! And the photos turned out amazing! I'm seriously so obsessed with the finished products! You will not regret picking Katy for your branding photos, headshots, etc!




The editing, the framing, generally everything was top tier. Really easy going and chill photographer. Even to those new to modeling and posing, she is patient and really does her best to bring out your best angles.




Katy is a very talented photographer. She was able to make the vision that I had for my personal portraits come to life. She put in a lot of time and effort finding a location for our session. During the session she helped me feel comfortable and offered helpful direction, as I’m not someone who often takes photos. The gallery of photos she took were amazing and I am so happy with them. Thank you Katy!




Katy is awesome! She is incredibly sweet and such an amazing photographer. My personal experience was working with her for building my modeling portfolio...She always remembered to hype me up a little bit [and] that the photos were coming out well...felt totally that this was a scenario that we were working together to create amazing images and we both got to be creative together and decide where we should shoot and what posing would look good. So, so highly recommend!!




Katy was incredibly easy to work with and made my first professional portrait session feel very natural. She's very personable, patient, and has an excellent eye for capturing true emotion! Could not recommend her enough.
