A little about me: Hi, I’m Katie! I’m a small-town girl from Southeast Nebraska. I was raised on a working farm with horses, cattle, hogs, chickens, field crops, gardens and more. I am the wife of a pilot and officer in the US Marine Corps named Andrew. Together he and I have had the privilege to live in places such as Pensacola, FL, Corpus Christi, TX, and currently San Diego, CA! Our Jack Russell Terriers “Bella” and “Zoe”, and our horses “Flirt, JD, Whizkey, Roxy, & Poppy” travel with us everywhere we go. When we are stationed in another state, I travel back to Nebraska several times throughout the year and offer photo session opportunities during my visits. I’m an avid horsewoman who has been riding and showing quarter horses, paints and ponies since I was a child. Currently, my favorite classes to show in are the ranch horse classes. In addition to photography and horses I also love cooking and baking, gardening, country music, fishing, target shooting, anything artsy or crafty and spending lots of time with my friends and family.
A little about my photography: I have had an interest in photography since I was little bitty taking part in 4-H photography projects and contests with my Kodak Star 110 camera. In those early days I photographed everything from the barn cats to the barn door. As the years have gone by my interest continued to grow and I continue to develop my skills, upgrade my equipment, and further my knowledge.
I have been rewarded by being published in magazines, winning a few photography contests, and gaining interest, business, and support from my family, friends, and new clients. I created a business whose name was inspired by one of my very own horses, Sheza Shootingstar, a beautiful Paint mare who has often been found in front of my lens.
I specialize in portraits (high school seniors, family, children, engagements), military homecomings, equine photography and pet photography. I also enjoy photographing equine related events and an occasional wedding.
Thank you so much for visiting my site and supporting me in my ambitions and work!
