I'm a storyteller- and as a storyteller, I want to document your life in the realest of moments. Every single day can be a struggle, from 2AM feedings, to negotiating with your toddler, to working that nine-to-five. In between those moments, there are beautiful bursts of happiness between you and your kids. I want to document that love and let it shine in the most intimate way. Up close and personal, with a lot of guidance and direction along the way. I will make the experience fun and easy... I promise!


Katie Rain Photography

Hi, I'm Katie and I'm a natural light photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have deep connections with all the families I photograph, and strive to create incredible stories through light and perspective.

I specialize in Lifestyle Newborn, Family, and Maternity Portraits, with a small touch of Commercial Photography on a limited, exclusive basis. I'm so happy to have this life and I can't wait to share this journey with you!

Ready to make photo magic?

Kind Words

Katie Rain is a really phenomenal photographer and an incredibly kind person. She takes absolutely gorgeous photos- both of our very photogenic son and his not-so-photogenic parents.

“Everyone who visits our home asks who took these amazing photos."

Katie brings a mama's expertise, a photographer's eye, and an artist's heart all wrapped up in one! She is a dream to work with and such a joy to be around. My kids love her, and we love how much she loves our kids, too.
