Howdy Ho! It’s Katie here.
Since May of 2017 I have been traveling the Western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico. I am currently residing in Tucson, Arizona so that I may explore this beloved desert landscape and spend time with those I love in life. My favorite parts of Tucson are tucked away in the saguaros and rigid mountains - I have spent most of my time hiking and camping in the Catalina Mountains. I enjoy painting, but I don’t do it quite as much. A decade ago, I realized how much more I could do with the camera and taking portraits was easier than painting them.
Moon Valley Creative is a collective of photography and jewelry making, as well as collaborating with other artists. Blog posts to come will feature poems from artists alongside photographic works. My goal through Moon Valley Creative is to build deeper relationships with whomever it is that I am working with so that you will experience confidence and beauty through the photographs we create.
I believe life is meant to be lived in joy, in community with one another- outdoing each other in love and friendship. Life is supposed to be fun and lived with others. Work is important but be sure not to let it overcome your life. Take time to live, to rest, to enjoy it with those around you. And when you find yourself in a place in life that you want to look back on and remember one day, that’s when I come to document life for you. My approach is very easy going, low stress, very natural. I want to provide photographs that showcase your unique life, love and zest. I will incorporate some posing into natural movements. Art is a collaborative process, so I want to really take the time to get to know you before the shoot, so by the time we are shooting together we are in our comfort zones. It takes time to create art and get to know one another, so the process won’t be rushed.
