Submission from Houston, Photographer
Currently residing in Texas, Katie is a photographer as well as a children’s art teacher. She attended school in Oakland and couldn’t decide what to do after graduation, so she worked and lived on a horse ranch. Katie also studied for two summers in Mexico and fell in love with the culture. Her snapshots of Houston reveal an instinctive feel for capturing everyday moments bathed in natural light.
