Chicago fine art portrait photographer that empowers, inspires, and educates women through photography.


Hey There! I'm Katharine.

Welcome to my blog! I'm a fine art portrait photographer based in Chicago specializing in Seniors & Couples. In my spare time, I wander in the woods, create new ways to empower local Chicago women, and travel with my boyfriend Nick.


Featured | Interview with Golden Boy Press


I was lucky enough to be interviewed over on Golden Boy Press about my work, my feelings on color and how they perform in photography, what I think about making people uncomfortable (hint: that's the goal), and if it's difficult to be vulnerable in front of the camera. I also go into detail about how I began photography, and my newest series on the ideas of virginity as a construct and purity as an ideal. I've never had such an in depth interview and it was an exciting new experience that I'm so excited to share with you all!
