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!

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

EMMA | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND SHERWOOD OREGON NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Emma!  My goodness what fun she was to photograph.  So squishy and sleepy.  Just the way I like them!  : )

Emma is the baby sister to two siblings.  Photographing a newborn with older siblings can be tricky but I think we pulled off a few great ones of all 3 kids!  The one with all their little feet is too cute.  Mom ended up purchasing a large black and white print of that one — good call mama!!

HENRY 1 YEAR | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND SHERWOOD OREGON BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Henry came back to see me for his 1-year photos!  You can see him as a tiny newborn HERE and now he is so big!  Crawling like a champ and so close to walking!  We did part of his session outside at Bush Park and then came inside the studio for a little cake smashing : )  How adorable is his Biscuit doggie cake??  Such a good idea for a 1st birthday theme.  I know my girls have loved the Biscuit books.

Happy First Birthday, Henry!

ORANGE COUNTY WORKSHOP in REVIEW | NEWBORN MENTORING

What an honor it was to teach this workshop!  My friend, Kim, moved from Oregon to Orange County, California, a couple of years ago. She had been telling me I should come down, stay with her and put on a newborn workshop — she could host!  Her home was a gorgeous backdrop for it and the ladies who signed up could not have been sweeter.  We had two newborn girls for our models and talked about all kinds of things from posing, natural lighting technique, camera angles, props, prepping parents, business details and more!

A huge THANK YOU to our vendor sponsors Leah Michele Creations and Freebird Prop Shoppe for providing goodies for attendees.  What a treat!!

CALVIN | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND SHERWOOD OREGON NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

This first photo of Calvin….

Wow.  I just love it.  I love the dreaminess, curves and kissable cheek.  When I look at it, I’m drawn in and am given a close feeling of intimacy with this brand new baby.  I hope his parents feel the same way!  He will grow so fast, but they will always have these photos to remember just how he was when he was a tiny, brand new baby.  I’m also very fond of the sibling and breastfeeding photos from this session!  Scroll down and enjoy.  And don’t miss the belly before and after photo at the very end!!

You’ll be seeing more of Calvin and his lovely family soon too since his mama signed up for the Baby Plan!  Yay!

JACKSON | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND SHERWOOD OREGON BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

I last saw Jackson at the Christmas Jammies mini session event I did this past winter.  He was about 3 months old then. Now he is 7 months old!  What a little smiler!!  Wow! And he’s happy, sweet baby boy to boot.
