meet me!

Hi!  I am Katherine, the photographer behind all these images and I am so glad you found my website!  

I live in Omaha, Nebraska with my amazing family.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are celebrating our ten year anniversary this year!  We have four wonderful children that I am blessed to be able to stay home with during the day.  I love the beach, all things chocolate, being crafty, and coffee (at any time of day). 
I grew up in a family of artists and was constantly surrounded by creativity.  My love of photography began at a young age (I don't remember a time when I didn't have some form of camera) and in high school I discovered my dad’s 35mm film camera.  Shortly after, I was gifted with a pentax of my own and with the help of my dad, books, and MANY rolls of film, I taught myself manual photography and found my passion for the art form. In 2008, I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I began katherine mcpherson photography when our family moved to Nebraska in 2016.

I bring a lifestyle approach to my worked based on the images I would want to hang on the walls of my own home.  I want to see my kids as they are, not in a stiff pose that they are going to fight.  Your time with me should be fun and not a chore.  A lifestyle, or even documentary session, allows me to do just that for you - capture the joy, interactions, and true personalities of your family in this season of life.   
As a mother, I understand the importance of capturing the milestones, the little moments, and the memories...the time goes by so fast!  I love capturing the emotions, feelings, and details in the still frames that will be cherished for years to come. I am honored to create these images and would be humbled to be chosen to photograph your family.  Let's meet for coffee and plan your session!
