Kathleen Mortland (also goes by Katie!) is a photographer located in Saint Louis specializing in newborns, families and weddings.
After working in the modeling industry for six years, she found herself with a desire to get behind the camera. It wasn't until the birth of her sweet niece, Lily, in 2013 that she discovered her real passion in photography is capturing the love of beginnings, whether that be a brand new baby or the start of a beautiful marriage. She truly enjoys getting to know each and every family and couple she works with and capturing such a special time in their lives.
When she is not behind the camera, Kathleen can be found traveling or spending time with her family and friends. In 2016 she completed her PhD in biology at Washington University in Saint Louis where she worked with fruit flies (yes, fruit flies!). She and her husband, Josh, welcomed their own little bundle of joy in 2016, Ella Grace, and are head over heels for her!
