You deserve photos that make you feel

and proud

 I have been working as a full-time photographer for over 8 years. I have lived on the west coast my entire life, I now call Southern Oregon my forever home. I have spent hours of my time learning the ways of newborn and maternity photography, from posing safely to having endless amounts of patience and gentle calm energy when handling your tiny baby. I absolutely love my job! I am so thrilled to be working as a Maternity, Newborn, and Family photographer in Southern Oregon!

Katie was amazing! She was so responsive when trying to book and very easy to work with! She was able to get me in on short notice which I really appreciated because my lack of planning was in no way her fault and yet she still made it work! My newborn was a little older than standard for a newborn shoot so she was a bit more awake and alert. Katie is the baby whisperer and was able to calm her down and get her to sleep multiple times, all while posing her and switching up outfits. To say I was impressed is an understatement. I would highly highly recommend her to anyone looking for newborn photos! Her studio is beautiful and the amount of colors and accessories she has is unbelievable! 10000% worth the investment

  Katie has taken my maternity pictures and just took my sons newborn pictures! She is a wizard both in the studio and out on location. She has extreme attention to detail and watching her during the newborn session has left me in awe of her persistence and quick and gentle hands her sets are beautiful, classy and elegant, 10/10 would hire her again!

   Katie is absolutely amazing!! I am so glad she was recommended to us, I was super stressed out because my son came a little earlier than expected & we didn’t have a photographer lined up but Katie was able to fit us in within a few days of his birth! Newborn shoots take a lot of love and patience and magic and Katie has all of those!! We had our older 2 sons with us and she was so patient with them as well!! I would recommend Katie over and over again!!!

 Katie did such a wonderful job with our maternity and newborn pictures. During the maternity pictures she made my husband and I feel so comfortable and helped us to pose and get perfect angles. For the newborn photo shoot, she worked so well with our little girl to help her stay calm, asleep and just look adorable! Katie has so much patience and is so sweet, we will for sure be going back to her in the future for family pictures we highly recommend her for anyone who needs pictures, especially newborn, she went above and beyond to capture our sweet little girl!

Katie is such a good photographer! Our pictures turned out beautiful. My baby did not want to sleep but she was so patient and made us feel comfortable. I will be coming back and recommend her to everybody!

I won a photography session during one of Katie’s giveaways, I ended up using it for my maternity photos. She had me come to her studio to try on dresses, she was so nice and easy to talk to, she made me feel like we had already known each other. When we did my maternity photos with my husband and three children, she was so good with them and made them feel comfortable, and my photos were amazing! I liked her style so much that I had her take photos this summer of my four children and they turned out really wonderful, even though my two year old was not in the mood for having his pictures taken I most definitely recommend Katie Anne Photography for all of your photography needs!

I have been more than happy and pleased with the outcome for all three photoshoots! I most definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful photographer!

My family and I had the best time doing our family/maternity shoot with Katie. She is amazing and made us feel so comfortable. My kids are a little rowdy and crazy but she captured them being themselves and it was the best experience. We cannot wait to welcome our 3rd baby and do a newborn shoot with her. Highly recommend for anyone looking for pictures you will not be disappointed!

I can't recommend Katie enough! I was so in love with the maternity photos she took for us that I knew without a doubt she was who I wanted to take my daughters Newborn photos. She is charismatic, kind, and understanding which put my anxiety at ease. If you are looking for an excellent family photographer definitely go with Katie Elder!
