TOPIC: Hi from the Seattle area

Hi from the Seattle area 8 years 6 months ago #1

hi! My name is Katie......I live in the Seattle area and do mainly weddings and lifestyle portraits. I have 3 kids and my husband is in the Navy. Let's see, what else can I say? (I secretly hate introducing myself).........

I've had my business for almost 3 years now. I travel internationally for jobs. Last year was Mexico, this year is Africa, the UK, Hawaii.......

I love warm places and I love to shoot.

OH! and recently I switched brands. I just sold all my Canon gear and went Nikon. If my lenses would ever get here I could start in again :)

You forgot to mention that you've been invited to speak at Photography conventions in Las Vegas and London! :)

Welcome Katie, I've heard about you from Alissa.
I took a look at you website and you do great work.
I hope you'll consider sharing some of your experiences of the ups and downs of being a pro photographer, Im sure we could all learn a lot from you.

I knew that you didn't mention it on purpose, so I had to do it for you! :)

I could've used your services at my wedding in Las Vegas last October. We didn't have a photographer at all, we just depended on the guests' P&S cameras. The results are about as disappointing as can be. Sure, the scenery looks nice enough, but there wasn't a single shot of just me and my wife. I had to clone out people from pictures just to get a portrait of the two of us.

Last time I posted a profile pic, I had to buy a new monitor. :lol:

Anyway, you'll see pictures of me around, for some reason, Mr Pink seems to have a fetish for taking pictures of me. :)

Since I am a photon, a mere particle of light, it's very hard to get a picture of me. I tend to be a part of every picture (except the ones where someone forgot to take off the lens cap). Fortunately, someone from the future :alien: was able to take a portrait of me and a couple of friends, and that's what I use for my picture

Wait... you mean you're so ugly, your picture broke your monitor? I thought that only happened in cartoons...
