Hi, I am Katie of Aura Photography.


I am a professional photographer from Houston, Texas. I am currently based on the Kitsap penisula in Washington state. I am currently booking sessions in Washington, Texas, Arizona, California and Oregon. I have been photographing clients since 2017, although I have been taking pictures my entire life.


Photography has been such a blessing for me in so many ways. It's taught me patiences and allowed me to express the visions I've always had and felt so deeply. I pour my heart and soul in my photos. I want each and every client I have to know that before working with me.


Everything I have I owe to Jesus. I am an artist because HE is an artist.

who am i?


I am a portrait photography based in Houston, Texas. My photography journey quickly took off during 2018 when I met my sweet, husband. He pushed me and has supported me from the beginning when I was nothing and I will forever cherish him for that. My career path has never been something I was completely sure of, until now.

I have a passion for traveling and I desperately want to see the whole world. Even if that is impossible, I will still try. So many people ask me where I want to end up as a photographer, and I always have trouble answering them. I would love to incorporate my love for traveling and scenery into my photography. Although, I haven't portrayed myself as a traveling photographer in the past, now is the time for me to change that.

"Shooting with Katie was such a relaxed and unique experience. Even as a shy person, I was able to open up so she could capture the real me for my branding session. I didn't quite understand the effort to get to know me until I got the images back. She isn't just running a fast moving commercial photography business. She gets to know each and every one of her clients to make the best of their sessions. This is art."

"photography gave me a deeper connection to god"

How my faith has impacted my life

I struggled for a long time to find a way to glorify God in my field of passion. That was until I realized this-
God is the one true original creator. He created the heavens and the earth from scratch. Every mountain, every ocean and every part of this world is a beautiful reminder to us what an incredible artist God is.
I take this as a fantastic reminder that we are made in his image.
We are made to create.

I have never been able to pick just one genre of photography. I think the most important thing to me for each session, is that no matter what genre, each gallery should tell a story. I specialize in creative portraits, couples and engagements and weddings/elopements.
