Hi! I’m Katie and I run my own photography business specializing in Lifestyle Photography! Lifestyle can be families, couples, newborns or branding! I used to be a theatre kid! As long as I can remember I’ve been passionate about creating real genuine moments whether it was as an actor or now as a photographer.
Child(ren) and Age(s)? I have one son who is one and a half and he is my whole entire world. Being his Mom is easily the best thing that has ever happened to me!
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
This is a tough one! I think I’m a pretty open book! Maybe people would be surprised to know I’ve only been in business for a year. I’ve spent this past year working so hard to get to where I am now and I’m super proud of it.
How long have you lived in the Town of Babylon? What made you decide to live here?
My husband and I have lived in Babylon for about 5 years! Before we were married our last apartment was here so we always hoped to buy our home here and luckily that happened!!
Favorite local things to do in Babylon?
My family and I love walking through Argyle Park as well as through the village! My husband and I love when Deer Park Ave closes around the holidays and we can walk down the street and soak up all the holiday activities!
Oh man, I love me some Swell Taco! I’m pretty sure I ate their nachos once a week when i was pregnant!
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood??
Oh that’s easy…my Mom. Everything I know about parenthood is from her. I can only hope to be half the Mom she is.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
I am currently working on a project being released in October. I’ve done a bunch of styled shooters recreating famous movie couples that I plan to feature to celebrate Halloween!
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now? (Ps this means like the Houston neighborhood community).
This community has been so completely welcoming and encouraging! I am so lucky that everyone (including fellow photographers!) have been so wonderful!! I love being a part of a welcoming community!
Can you give the community some advice on when they should book shoots?
They should book as far in advance as they possibly can to guarantee they get the date they want!
For maternity the ideal time to shoot is 35 weeks but it can totally be earlier if a mama wants to shoot before she’s too uncomfortable! Newborn session should take place before the cutie is two weeks old. I shoot newborn lifestyle so i come to the home and shoot with the family. There is no intense posing it’s supposed to be a more intimate type of shoot! I tell families to dress comfortably. It is such a special and fleeting time and I want to capture that snapshot of what life felt like at that moment.
What’s the best way to book you?
Anything else you’d like to share?
I’d love to offer $50 off a session to all the Babylon Mamas (doesn’t include mini sessions.)
Mention “Babylon Moms” when booking!
