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.


Exhibition | The School of the Art Institute of Chicago | Artbash


Every April, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago hosts their annual exhibition called Artbash. The work displayed is all from freshman artists at the school, and is their first introduction to submitting a project proposal, submitting their work, and being vulnerable with strangers. My project proposal did not go through because sometimes I have trouble verbally expressing my ideas (thanks, homeschooling). However, they always have an open call where you can leave your work and let it speak for itself, and if the judges like it enough they will keep it for the show. Guess which one I got. :) Thanks to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago for including me in Artbash. It was so amazing to get to see all of my classmates work and I had such a good time at the opening. :D

This was the only photo I got because of first art show nerves and awkwardness, but it was undeniably a great experience and I had such a fun time!
