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!

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

Handsome newborn baby Tobias.  His family is calling him Toby for short.  : )  Tobias (Τοβίας) is a Greek version of the Hebrew biblical name “Toviyah” (טוביה), meaning “The goodness of God.”  He certainly is a testament to the goodness of God!

BABY F | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND WILSONVILLE OREGON NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Would you simply like a few really nice photos of your brand new baby?  Don’t need a bunch of set-ups and don’t have the time to invest in a full newborn session?  I offer a newborn mini session that would fit your needs perfectly!  Below is a recent example of one such session.  Two neutral set-ups with a few wraps and a bonnet to add variety to her gallery.  Her parent’s loved it!

THOMAS | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND WILSONVILLE OREGON NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

All Through the Night

Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee,

All through the night;

Guardian angels God will send thee,

All through the night;

Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,

Hill and vale in slumber steeping,

I my loving vigil keeping,

All through the night.

- Sir Harold Boulton -

 

This baby brother was such a great sleeper for his newborn session here at my Salem, Oregon photography studio.  His siblings were so sweet with him, too.  A big congratulations to this beautiful family on the arrival of Thomas!!

SUBATHRA | SALEM, PORTLAND, LAKE OSWEGO AND WILSONVILLE OREGON MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

Boy, we have had a mild winter here in the PNW!  I’m not complaining though!  My 4 year old might be…I think she has finally given up on asking, “When is it going to snow?!” and has moved on to getting through spring so it can be SUMMER!  A girl after my own heart.

I met Subathra and her husband on one of these mild winter days at George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego to take her maternity photos.  Excitingly enough, their sweet baby girl has just arrived earthside(!!) and I will be photographing her newborn session this week.  So stay tuned.
