Thank you for making your way here. There to the right, (or below on your cell) is my new, growing family. Ciarán, Haulie and myself at Stow Lake, Father’s day 2019. Haulie (short for Michéal) was born Feb16th, and is the most fun little girl on the planet. She just started eating solids this week and is full of hilarious chat. I have always seen the importance of capturing memories (+printing them) coming from a huge family, but now that Haulie has come along, I find myself even more in love with creating special images for people to have forever.
I am originally from County Kildare, Ireland but moved to the states about 15 years ago. I specialize in lifestyle, family, newborn photography. I really feel so lucky, and very grateful to get to do what I do for a living. I love nothing more than making kids laugh for the camera, It makes me beyond happy to be able to get shy little ones to act goofy with me. I will them hold the camera and even take a couple of shots before we start. Urban, street shoots are my newest obsession - as you will see from my Instagram. I love bright, bold colors in my images but there is also nothing more magical than a family shoot in the woods amongst the trees.
I have an AA in photography, another in marketing and a BA in communications. I have 6 sisters, 1 brother and 9 nieces and nephews. I have an open (ish) calendar for the rest of the year with shoots scheduled here and there- I would love to include you so shoot me a message or give me a call and I look forward to working with you.

"Katie is amazing to work with and I'm thrilled with her work. I will cherish the gorgeous photos of my 2 little boys forever and I can't wait to book her again for another family shoot. She quickly and calmly captured stunning images even though my 2 week old was crying and 2 year old was acting like a 2 year old!! She is truly gifted. I'm new to SF and THRILLED that I have found my new go-to photographer."

"Katie is absolutely the best! She made our shoot so much fun and was so patient with our 1 year old. She has such a creative eye and great suggestions for locations. Logistically, she was very easy to work with- fast at responding and was even flexible on the day of the shoot to accommodate the unpredictable weather/fog. The final pictures were absolutely beautiful! Could not have asked for a better experience; thanks again Katie!"
