I think it is only fair that I share some of my story,

as I learn more about yours.

My passion has always been connecting with people! When I was young, I experienced love and soul, life and loss. My journey inspired me to reach out to others; to form connections and truly care for other people. I am the photographer who is here to be your friend along the way. The one who wants you to feel comfortable enough to text me about the florals you just booked or the dress you just bought! Each of my life chapters has brought me to where I am today. So get ready for a novel as I share a little more about me!

I completed my schooling as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner. This career path provided me the opportunity to connect with many beautiful individuals who have varied abilities. Together we used their strengths to foster growth and independence! It is this experience where I learned the importance of self-worth. You deserve to share your story, proudly and unapologetically. Whether that means sharing your love story, capturing your journey through motherhood or the business you just started; be proud of where you are.

I continued my education, completing a Honours Bachelor in Therapeutic Recreation, while also growing my personal passion of photography. My love for photography began with capturing natural moments of individuals with varied abilities. It continued through capturing candid moments of families and couples. To developing my true love for weddings.

In 2019, I opened my own photography business!

Born to Be Photography was born.

Both career paths gave me the strength of facilitation! What does this mean? It means I am great at helping you through your day. I am very organized to the point it is a super power. Thank goodness, because in 2023 two little boys joined our family! Yes! TWINS. Add another layer of organization to my life. These two brought our family so much joy.

My goal as your photographer is to ensure you are comfortable and to document you as authentic as possible. So let me capture your growth! Let me document the next chapter of your story.

On a side note,

Meet my little family;

the Brittany's and the boys.

Seriously, look no further. Katie is amazing! We booked Katie to do our engagement photos and wedding, best decision ever. I loved how the pictures turned out. She is incredibly talented and extremely detailed oriented to make sure you have the perfect photos. Her fun quirky and professional personality made it easy to take pictures with, and made us very comfortable. I highly recommend Katie, you will know you are in great hands!

I was beyond thrilled with the photos that Katie took of my family during our lavender session. They are so beautiful and just what I had hoped for. I was nervous on how the photo session would go, since getting 3 small kids to all cooperate and pose can be next to impossible, but Katie did amazing. The kids all thought she was super nice and also loved the treasure box reward at the end for doing a good job. I can’t wait to get these photos printed out and up on my wall. Would definitely do another sessio

I can’t thank Katie enough for capturing our wedding day so perfectly - as someone who has never had professional photos done, she made the process so comfortable, fun and easy! We’ve received our sneak peak photos of our special day and I was just blown away with how truly amazing they came out! We can’t wait to see the rest of them! The vision Katie has is absolutely incredible and I could not recommend her services enough!

I would highly recommend Born to Be Photography! Katie is such a sweet heart and always captures such beautiful natural photos. I always know whenever I have photos taken by Katie they are going to turn out perfect!! Thank you so much and looking forward to our next set of photos in the future.

Katie is simply the best. From the moment I inquired about our photoshoot, I felt like I was speaking with a friend I'd known for years. She is so down to earth and made us feel so comfortable during the entire process. She has a way at capturing simple moments and turning them into art. When I received our final gallery I was speechless. She captured us, simply being us. I was beyond inspired after receiving these photographs. I cannot thank her enough for the memories. I cannot wait to work with her again

Katie was wonderful to work with. Not only did her photos come out amazing but she made us feel at ease during the shoot. Even though we only did a mini session (15 minutes) she had so many beautiful photos from that short amount of time. We loved all of them. Thank you Katie for capturing these moments with our new little one.
