modern portraits for

happy families

Welcome! I'm Katie Rain, a portrait photographer specializing in newborn and family photography. I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but often travel to Los Angeles and New York City for photoshoots as well. I have a special talent for making my photoshoots stress-free and "way easier than expected." You will love the experience, but more importantly, you will love the photos.

Hey, I'm Katie

a.k.a your toddler's new bff!

I have proudly photographed more than 1,000 families in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2012. I take pride in being a business owner, while also being a partner to my husband and mama to my three kiddos.


If you are looking for a trusted photographer to take natural, beautiful photos of your family that you will love, then I'm the artist for you. I can't wait to meet you and your crew!

"Katie is a tremendously gifted artist. Her talent behind the camera is only surpassed by her disarming approachability that makes shooting with her a joyful experience for everyone. So grateful to be able to enjoy her photos for years to come!"
