Meet Katie


Let's Get Together!

I'd love to chat with you! Please send me a message using this form and I'll be in touch ASAP. Thanks!

Hi there! I'm Katie, affectionately known as the "Her" behind Her Side Project. What initially began as a "side project" at the start of my career has since blossomed into a full-time endeavor. I am truly grateful to have cultivated a reputation over the last 15 years as an acclaimed luxury heirloom and lifestyle portrait photographer, proudly based in San Antonio, Texas.


When I'm not capturing memories for families across the country, I'm making memories of my own with my husband and our daughter (age 6), son (age 2), and forever puppy dog (age 10, but she's 7 pounds so she'll obviously always be a baby in my eyes).

If you're considering me as your photographer, THANK YOU! I'd be honored to work together. First things first, I want to share three important things.

1. I have a knack for making people feel comfortable.

Throughout my journey, I've mastered the art of helping any subject feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. With unwavering patience, precise direction, and a sprinkle of self-deprecating humor when the occasion arises, I've witnessed even the most reserved participants gradually open up. Once that trust is established, the rest effortlessly falls into place.


"I want my clients to have fun and feel confident in front of the camera."

2. You're going to have fun and like the results. 

As a friendly people-person, I've dedicated over 15 years to working with folks of all ages and backgrounds. Are you shy? I'll gently bring you out of your shell. Is your toddler fast? I am faster. ;) I get the shot and always deliver frame-worthy, flattering photographs.

"I always deliver frame-worthy, flattering photographs."

3. Memories matter.
I firmly believe that every moment, beyond just milestones or special occasions, is worth the precious investment in professional photography. 
A child bursting into genuine laughter, a gentle hand brushing across a baby's cheek, and the simple joy of being together—are all examples of tender, unscripted moments that form the intricate chapters of your life story. Make no mistake; this narrative deserves thorough and thoughtful documentation.

"Your life story deserves thorough and thoughtful documentation."

I can't wait to meet you.
