About Me

Hi!  My name is Katie Maurer— technically Kaitlin Mackenzie Maurer.  I’m so glad you’re here!


Photographing family life is my passion.  Whether it’s rambunctious toddlers, sweet sleepy newborns, shy preschoolers, too-cool-for-this teens, grumpy dads, self-conscious moms, big families with a billion cousins, first or fifteenth time parents— I love it all!

I’m a firm believer that photo sessions should be fun.  This allows natural expressions to show and personalities to shine.  No fake smiles, saying cheese, or sitting on a stool with neatly folded hands in my sessions.  I want to create a space where everyone feels free to be themselves.  My goal is to guide, direct, joke, cajole, play games, and prompt my clients into scenarios that will encourage natural smiles and authentic interaction between each member of the family.  I have over twelve years of experience working with all sorts of different kids and families, both with and without a camera in hand.  I love what I do and so do my clients!  You don't need to take my word for it though.  

My clients have lots to say about me and the work I do.


All of my clients receive some consultation prior to booking any kind of session.  (It’s up to you if you’d prefer over the phone or via email.)  It’s my way of getting to know you a little better and making sure I can answer any questions you may have in advance.  This helps me learn how to give you the best possible results from the time you spend in front of my camera.


After booking, you'll receive a gorgeous illustrated digital session guide I’ve written and designed to help you know what to wear, how to prepare, and make a plan to get the best possible results from your photo session with me.  I am also happy to provide as much styling help as my clients want.



Please feel free to contact me if you have additional questions. I’d love to hear from you!
