Katie Anderson Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    Take a quick look around, and I think you'll get a pretty good feel for me, Katie Anderson, newborn photographer based in Salem, OR. I adore precious little newborns, pregnant mamas, and everything 'baby.' I love what I do. While there is some sameness to each newborn session, every baby is so special and unique. My hope is to deliver portraits that capture that uniqueness!

    I have a BA in Interior Design from WSU. After working in architectural firms for 3 years, I made my photography hobby a career. I have been photographing professionally for 5 years now.

    When it comes to the rest of my life, I've got my amazing husband of 10 years and am shamelessly obsessed and hopelessly in love with my two little girls, Amity (4 years old) and Verity (2 years old). No doubt you'll see their sweet faces brighten this screen from time to time!

    Thanks for visiting, and I hope you'll be in touch soon!

C FAMILY | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND WILSONVILLE OREGON FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

SEAN + MARISSA | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND WILSONVILLE OREGON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

What a privilege it was to spend the day with Sean and Marissa photographing their gorgeous wedding.  They are seriously such a sweet couple.  So much effort went into making the day special and it shows!  The Long Farm Barn in West Linn, Oregon was the perfect venue for their country chic wedding.  Enjoy  reliving the day through photos!
