hey there,


Thank you for taking a minute to get to know me! I'm Katie and I have been photographing families and babies in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 8 years now. I love connecting with people, so if you have a question about a photo session or you just want to chat, please feel free to send me a note. Information about newborn and family photo sessions can be found below. I hope I get to meet you and your family soon!


What can you expect from a session with me? First of all, you can expect timely emails and great communication from me. I won't leave you hanging! During the session, you can expect me to roll with the mood of the baby and kids. I leave plenty of time for nursing, diaper changes, and snacks. I am a mom so I totally get it!


You can expect the session to be pretty speedy and efficient! I don't like to waste family time and I've got this down to a science now. I will guide you throughout the session so you are never left to feel awkward or uncomfortable.


I genuinely love taking photos and meeting new people, but snuggling the babies is my absolute favorite!

"Katie is incredibly talented and has a gift of capturing people in their true element. Her kind, authentic, sweet personality helps create a calm environment when normally there is stress involved when taking pictures. She made my girls feel so at ease and captured their personalities perfectly within the shoot. She has a great eye for the lighting, location and reads off the energy of the family. The photos came out better then I could have ever hoped for. Our family will be using Katie again and for trays to come! She truly is the best!"


"Katie Rain is a phenomenal photographer. She has been shooting my family for the past three years from maternity to newborn to first year sessions. Katie had the best attitude and can connect with a moody two year old and forty-two year old at the same time. She makes our whole family feel comfortable and draws our natural smiles. She is creative and artistic and the photos always come out amazing! From Baker Beach to Lands End and Sutro Baths she knows how to shoot the natural beauty of the landscape with our family front and center. We are so lucky to have found Katie!"
