Hello! I'm Katherine.
I am a published and award winning photographer in Eastern North Carolina. I grew up in California and went to college for the 'creative' side of Computer Science- digital photography, modeling, texturing, animation. I also studied Fine Art- film photography, drawing, art history.
My first foray into photography as a possible career was high school (2001) and 35mm film techniques and darkroom. I bought my first digital camera and took my first photo computer class in 2005, and bought my first DSLR in 2009, a Cannon Rebel XT. In 2014 I acquired my second Cannon, a Rebel T1i. Along the way I bought all my equipment with the money I made from photographing anything I could get my lens on. I started Katherine's Kreations L.L.C. in April of 2014. I acquired my 3rd camera, a Canon T6i in 2017 along with various lenses- 300mm and a macro, for longer and shorter distances, effectively giving me (and my clients!) more creative options, and my first camera is officially retired.
I graduated from CSU Chico in 2007 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Computer Science- Applied Computer Graphics with a Production Option, and an Art Studio Minor. I also hold an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts from Sierra College (2004).
My passion is happiness. I love smiles, being present at people's most wonderful moments, and capturing them forever. I have a terrible memory, so I know exactly how powerful a photo can be. It is an honor to be asked to share important moments in someone's life. I love creating a fun environment, we'll be friends when I'm done! I'll give you any and all tips I know to make sure you look great. I make sure you are happy, so that you recommend me to your friends!
"You're like a Ninja!"
I strive to catch all the best moments during weddings and events as well as make creative photos. I'm quick, I have been told I am "everywhere", that I have great timing and eye for the shot. One of my favorite parts of photography is post-production. Photoshop. I believe there is an artistry in looking at a photo and seeing the possibilities. I will use all the skills and tools I have in my arsenal to turn a great photo into a creative piece you will cherish.
