Meet the Artist | Metro Detroit Family Photographer
I’m Kateri. I’m 28 years old. I’ve been married to my husband Alex for 5 years, together for almost 10. We have one ADORABLE little girl, Zoey, who’s 4 and just started preschool! I’ve been a work at home mom since she was born, and I love it! We live in a small town in Metro Detroit, Michigan. Couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, Michigan is my home!
Fun facts about me:
I believe in Jesus. I love to laugh and dance. I take my coffee black. Love an occasional Starbucks Frap. Spaghetti is my favorite food, though Mexican food is a very close second. I could live on buttered noodles! I just love food. Recent discovery: I can cook! I occasionally enjoy a glass of wine at the end of a long day. Pinot Grigio is my fav. Dark chocolate makes my mouth water. Indie Rock music is my all time favorite genre. Favorite band is Weezer. My Indie Christmas station on Pandora is played starting the day after Thanksgiving. The Beatles, Elvis, & Michael Jackson= LOVE. I have the entirety of The Little Rascals movie memorized. We’ve watched Frozen a bajillion times. Tweety is my favorite cartoon character. I’m a 90’s kid. Full force.
I graduated from Wayne State University with a BFA in Drawing & Painting, after almost 8 long years of studying! Why do you have a photo business if you majored in drawing & painting, you ask? Photography and art, in general, have ALWAYS been a BIG part of my life. I have always had a love of photography. I fell in love with drawing while in high school. Painting while in college. It wasn’t until my final year at WSU that I decided to start a business in photography. It’s not always easy, but I’ve learned a lot and work hard to produce the very best I can!
Natural light is best, but I do use studio lights and flash when necessary. K.I.S.S. keep.it.simple.stupid. is my motto. Simple backdrops, and subtle editing is my style. I don’t, and won’t, over photoshop you or your babies. Although I’m fully capable, it’s just not my style. Swapping heads, erasing acne and fixing backgrounds are a completely different story. Special request? Just ask. I love lifestyle photography. Capturing life as it happens. I will pose you a certain way to enhance your best features. As well as give you direction on where your hands/feet need to be.
Everyone is unique. Every family is different. Bring your personality. I’ll bring my camera.
