Hi! I am Katie Schneider. As a busy mom of 2 young kids, I understand that it can be hard to find time to schedule newborn or family portraits and that you worry about the process being stressful and overwhelming, maybe you also worry about your kids sitting and smiling for the camera. Don't worry! I will make the process as easy and as stress-free as possible.
I will take care of everything from start to finish. You will leave your session and portrait experience with beautiful images on your walls and in your hands. These tangible memories will become part of your treasured family heirlooms that you will, one day, pass on to your children.
Hiring a photographer to capture a specific time in your family history can be daunting. My expertise, reputation and attention to great service will take the stress and uncertainty out of that decision. The decision to hire a high quality photographer has to be made one time. Seeing your beautiful photographs in your home will be a joy every day.
I cannot wait to meet you and become a part of your family history!

Don’t just take my word for it! Here are some words from my clients:
"My favorite part was watching Katie work with our newborn. She was so gentle and caring and did a phenomenal job making sure he was as content as possible. She has a very easy going way and calming personality." -Liz W.
"Katie's ability to work with our newborn was my favorite part of the photo session. She was comfortable working with our newborn son, positioning him with care and ensuring he was comfortable before taking the photos." -Alison W.
"It's always stressful having pictures taken when toddlers are involved! Katie was so calm and reassuring with the toddlers being crazy. It made me feel like it didn't bother her one bit! And, we ended up with a few family photos with our newborn baby." -Nicole P.
"My biggest concern was trying a new photographer and just nervous about how things would turn out having a 1 year old. Everything went great and Katie was extremely patient with our son! Use Katie, she's awesome and great with families!" -Julie B.
"I loved working with Katie for my Maternity Photos! As someone who is larger, I'm a little self-conscious about how I look and I loved that Katie took the time to help me look amazing! She provided excellent direction and the photos are proof!" - Anna H.
"Katie was great during our maternity session! She made me feel beautiful and at ease, explaining along the way why certain poses may feel awkward but will look great in the finished product. I'm looking forward to following up my maternity session with a newborn session with Katie!" - Nicole P.
