About Me

Hi, I’m Katie and I’m a Cape Town based photographer who specialises in wedding, engagement, family, newborn and maternity photography.

 

I have always loved taking photos and when I bought my first digital SLR, you could find me with it almost all the time. I attended a close friend’s wedding in 2007, and couldn’t resist taking photographs of all the beautiful details they had so carefully planned. I fell in love with being able to preserve all the memories from such a momentous day, and I set out to learn and practice as much as I could from then onwards. That wedding changed my career goals, and my life – I met my husband that night!

 

The need to have a camera in my hand all the time increased when my son was born in June 2012, and he has now taken ownership of that first digital SLR. I am looking forward to seeing him join the company when he’s a little older.

 

While most of my time is dedicated to photographing special moments in the lives of others; when I do get free time I spend it making special moments of my own with my precious little boy, my family and friends. On very rare occasions you can find me taking snippets of time for myself on a trail run, on the squash court, at the gym or curled up reading a book or watching a movie or series.

 

I am inspired by love ~ Love between a husband and wife, mother and child, best friends, families and even beloved pets.

 

Feel free to look around for more information, or to find out more about the gear I use.

Blake’s newborn shoot

Posted by | June 22 | No Comments on Blake’s newborn shoot

Little Blake joined me for his newborn session early in the morning.  He was awake the entire session, but was still very well behaved.  His mom and dad decorated his room with a nautical theme, and their maternity session was shot in Kalk Bay to match.   I loved working with you all!

Waterkloof proposal – Ryno and Sam

Posted by | June 21 | No Comments on Waterkloof proposal – Ryno and Sam

I was booked to photograph Ryno’s proposal to Sam through the Perfect Proposal.  These are some of my favourite shoots, but I am always a little nervous beforehand.  Will they see me? Will she say yes?   The day that Ryno had planned to propose to Sam was one of the windiest Cape Town afternoons […]

Casual Business Headshots – Amy

Amy from Photography to Remember contacted me about a family photoshoot as well as some headshots for her website.  We decided to do both shoots on Noordhoek Beach at sunrise, and the early wake up was definitely worth it.   Amy lights up around children, and particularly her little boy, Levi, so it made my […]

Ballet amongst the Roses – a styled shoot

Posted by | June 16 | 1 Comment on Ballet amongst the Roses – a styled shoot

One night, at around 22h00, I had this idea. A friend of mine told me she would be in Cape Town for a few weeks, and she’s a dancer.  I’ve photographed her before, and always said that if I had the chance, I’d organise another shoot with her.  I knew that this was the perfect […]

Noordhoek Family Portraits at Sunrise

Posted by | June 16 | 1 Comment on Noordhoek Family Portraits at Sunrise

I truly love capturing precious family moments.  Your family, my family, or someone else, it really doesn’t matter.  But when a fellow photographer (and friend) contacts me to photograph her family, and she jumps on the idea of the beach at sunrise, my heart seriously skips a few beats.   Amy, thank you for getting […]

Forest Maternity Portraits

Posted by | June 16 | No Comments on Forest Maternity Portraits

Roland and Alison approached me to photograph their little family of three before they welcomed baby number two.  We took a short walk from their home to a nearby forest, and took some portraits of them together.  Pregnancy is such a special time for the whole family, and the mommys-to-be always glow during their portrait […]
