I can't wait to be friends! Let's get into it, yes?!

I'm here for real love, real smiles, real memories, the real-realness. I'm a creative soul looking to make art with you. Art for those soul-affirming moments you want to bottle up and remember forever. Art for whatever season of life that you’re in.

I'm here to help you feel like we've been friends for ages; I'm your ultimate hype girl, your favorite third wheel, and unafraid to do anything it takes to get that perfect shot.

I've been told that working with me is like being wrapped up in a warm blanket, and that the most memorable part is how I made my clients feel. So not only are you going to have beautiful photos you'll cherish forever, you'll walk away feeling great.

As your candid photographer, I'm here to document your magic, encapsulate your energy, and tell your beautifully unique story.

A little about me

HI, I'M KATHLEEN… 

When I first took photography in high school, I fell in love with every step of the process. The tactile energy of the darkroom, the detailed work of finding the right frame, the slow and steady art of getting the right exposure and contrast all spoke to me in such a deep way. I carried this love into college, where I would spend hours in the darkroom at Mason Gross School of the Arts. Photography gave me an energy like nothing else I’d ever done before. I would wake up and fall asleep thinking about creating art, finding new ways to manipulate light, and finding my own style.

My philosophy is simple. You are magic. My photos are simply a reflection of your love's power.

Art for the season Of Life That you're in

I'm inspired by fierce love. By those who are unafraid to let their quirky flag fly, who embrace the blurry, grainy and bespoke nature of film. I'm inspired by the magic, the energy, the soft, quiet moments in between it all. It's all about letting go of the facade and embracing the realness.

My goal is to create art with you – something you can look back on and feel, not just see. It's so important to me that our time together enhances the way you relive these moments when you look back on them for years to come.

Love film wedding photography? Perfect, me too! I have a film camera collection and would love to give you all the nostalgia. Love crisp, clean shots? Cool, so do I! Let's get your ideal candids with clean lines. See? I got you.

My style is warm, candid, ethereal, and I always invite the light to join the party.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” —Paul Caponigrovery

When I'm not photographing, you can find me exploring the woods, foraging for mushrooms, tending to my flock of chickens, chasing my two daughters around, and cozying up to my muppet-looking dog, Atticus.

If you're into indie music, collecting vinyl, the quiet after snowfall, all things Halloween, or David Lynch, we are going to be fast friends. My heart is happiest when I'm in the forest, eating kimchi with crispy rice, going through old photographs, and especially when having my first cup of coffee.

I love people; I truly find my energy in the connections and friendships I form, which is why I love what I do so much. I promise, when we work together, we're going to leave the day feeling like friends. Most importantly, I'm going to make sure I catch every magical detail of your day.

you can always find me in the forest

Having been a bride myself, and having shot so many weddings, I take great care to make sure everything runs smoothly on your day. I was a teacher for eleven years, so organizing, delegating, and keeping things on a schedule all come naturally to me.

I'm part artist, part hype woman, and part therapist. I'm here to keep you calm, cool, and collected while making sure your authentic wedding photography captures the best moments and details. So much of this comes from getting to know my clients first and foremost. My overall approach is organic; to know when to go candid, when to pose, and when to get the bride a drink.

I realize that you aren't used to being in front of the lens, so I'm here to make sure you're comfortable so you can focus on what actually matters: making those memories and living in the moment.

Rain, hail or shine, i won’t miss a beat.

Our session with Kathleen was nothing short of amazing! She truly captures everything you could want & more. Our entire session was filled with laughter, and we had the best time. It's as if we've known Kathleen for years, there's no awkward silence or small talk. She was able to break my boyfriend out of his shell and gave us the most beautiful photos! I truly just stare at our album in disbelief. I can't wait to book our next session!
