Mastering the
Light & Airy Style

Shooting and editing
for professional photographers

I've heard your frustrations.

Lack of consistency, blown out skin tones, hazy images, green color casts, focus struggles, capturing genuine emotions, posing, finding locations, outfit and client prep struggles. 

THIS COURSE ADDRESSES IT ALL, every single nitty gritty detail of how I shoot and edit my images and solutions to the common struggles of light and airy photographers.

"I’ve always admired Katie’s photography style but couldn’t even get close to it on my own. After watching her course, I have every single step from client styling, to locations and lighting, to editing, to finally make my dream photos happen!"


About the course

This 3.5 hour in depth video course walks through all the ins and outs of how I shoot and edit to achieve my light and airy photography style.

The course is broken down into five sections including preparing clients for their session, what I’m looking for in my locations, posing and capturing authentic emotions, the technical side of shooting, culling and editing.

This course is a cumulation of my bachelors of fine art photography degree and twelve years worth of professional experience developing my photography style, all condensed down in to a 3.5 hour master course which includes instructional teaching, on location demos throughout the seasons, and a private membership group for like-minded community, Q&As, and additional resources.

Insider's Club Membership

"I cannot sing the praises of Katie's courses enough! I have purchased everything Katie offers and have had ZERO regrets about each and every investment!"


"I have so much more confidence behind the lens."

Prior to Katie's course, my pictures looked like everyone else's. I had a vision, but no matter the amount of research, I wasn't able to achieve exactly what I was envisioning.

After the course, I am so much closer to my vision. Now my work stands out from other photographers in the area and I've booked my entire calendar at prices I never thought people would dare pay. I have so much more confidence behind the lens; each session is better than the last!
