Katie Corley

Howdy Ho! It’s Katie here.

It’s a strange thing having to write about yourself on the internet. I don’t want to come off as inauthentic, so if you also hate getting to know someone via words on a computer screen, please just reach out and say hello- from there we can skype, facetime, chat on the phone, or even meet up and have a warm cup of covfefe.

As a child, I grew up in the woods, day dreaming, exploring, climbing trees, and basically just having fun. As I grew into the teenage years and young adult years, society tries to shape you into something that may not be you. I played the game and once I felt it was time, I left. Mississippi is home and I love her dearly, I love and miss my dear friends and family but staying put in this vast world just seems so detrimental to my soul. So alas, I’m here, living the life I was meant to live. I’m currently traveling the Western half of the States, so even if we aren’t close at the moment, I may be in your area in the future - I will work on keeping that posted on social media, my website, and in my email list. Always down to clown, lets hang out and have fun.

 

 
 

 

 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.

 

T R A D I N G P O S T

Art and photos aren’t always affordable for everyone and I understand that. I am always down to collaborate and work with trades with other lovely humans. Some people do simple one time things or some people like to work long term together. Some people trade gift cards or food and herbs from their farm, basically anything is cool with me, we’re all just people trying to live life so I think it’s cool to make photos available to people in every walk of life. Please do not feel embarrassed to reach out with any proposals, I think it’s cool being able to help each other other.

CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR

  • Vocal Lessons

    I would love to learn how to sing one day. I’m down to work out a longer term contract and work on a continuous photo basis with you - no matter what type of photo needs you have. This could be promo work, headshots, music videos, etc. Lets work something out.

 
 

Investment

Each package is a unique experience designed specifically with you in mind. During the planning period, I will send over a questionnaire to help with planning, as well getting input from you on what you expect from your session. There is no limit on locations or outfits during your session, just keep in mind that the more you bring to wear or the more places we go, that is less time spent shooting.

Don't worry about feeling awkward in front of the camera, most people I work with do not have a lot of experience in front of the camera. I shoot in all natural lighting outdoors and I try to bring a more natural feel to your portraits. We won't do a whole lot of posing, I will direct you into each moment so your photos will have a more natural and documentary type feel.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

540.jpg

Where are you located?

Currently, I am traveling around nomadically in the Western half of the US. If you are unsure of where I am currently or may be in the future, just reach out and check. At the moment, it has proved to be unsafe for me to post a 'travel schedule' online. 

How many photos do I get back?

Each session is unique to the person. I can't give you a set amount because I do not limit you to how many you get back. Lets say one person who books a regular portrait session has 3 outfits, whereas another person has 6 outfits. One person will have spent more time changing clothes than the other person and this can effect how much time was actually spent shooting, therefore effecting how many total photos are returned back. 

What if it rains?

We will reschedule the shoot if it rains. If it is overcast, you have the option to reschedule to a sunnier day without losing your deposit. 

Can I reschedule without losing my deposit? 

Yes! Deposits are non-refundable but you may reschedule it to another date due to bad weather or a family emergency.

How much is the deposit to book a date?

The deposit to book the date is going to be 50% of the total price.
**Deposits are non-refundable & will hold your date - if a deposit is not paid, the date/time can not be held for you.

After the Shoot

How long until I get my photos back?

Portraits: 3-4 weeks
Weddings: 6-7 weeks

Can you put this in black and white but leave one part in color?

No.

Will I have to buy prints? How will I get my photos back after the session?

I will return the photos back digitally to you and you will have full print rights to the images. I use Google Drive to deliver files, it is super easy to download them straight to your computer once I send them over. There is also the option to have your photos back on a USB, just make sure to let me know you are interested in this.
