Photography has given me the ability to freeze moments in time with the click of a button; self-taught from my teenage years, I am able to capture memories that are never to be repeated again. Whether it’s a pollen-collecting bee, a newborn’s first smile, or an ice formation in a waterfall, my photographs enable me to share what I’ve experienced. From the tallest mountain peak to the complexities of the smallest ecosystems, my passion allows me to invite the world to experience all of the wonder and beauty Colorado has to offer. My photography is “as is,” untouched and straight from the camera. I want people to look at my art and have it take their breath away; I want them to feel as though they are experiencing it firsthand, as though they are standing in Colorado. I want people to remember the beauty we have here by looking at one of my photos and feel it touch their very soul.
Born in August of 1957, and raised in the Denver area, I am a Colorado native and have lived in this state my entire life. Now residing in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, I am a freelance photographer and the owner of KatagramStudios, a small, one person photography studio.
My children and my husband have played such a huge part in my success. They have always believed in me and pushed me into believing in myself, even when I felt uncertain; they have showered me with praise and love and encouragement. They are my personal cheering section and are the heart and soul of KatagramStudios. My family and the love we have for one another is my inspiration, my drive to continue doing what I enjoy.
My camera goes with me everywhere I go as I never know when the “perfect shot” may present itself, so I am always prepare.
