Hi, I'm Katie Richard.

(Or the Mountain Mermaid)

I feel extremely blessed to live in the mystical Blue Ridge mountains with my beautiful family. A few of my favorite things: my brilliant kiddos, cold plunges, mountain drives, snorkeling, Costa Rica, rainbows (duh!), secret spots at the river, dancing into the night at concerts, belly laughs with friends & foraging for mushrooms.

If you're up for an adventure, I'm your girl - I LOVE to explore with clients to create next-level imagery in the natural world. Creating connection, finding that perfect light, and sharing beauty with others has been the driving force in my photography. I love the intimate experience of a portrait session and allowing my clients the chance to see themselves from a new perspective, in their infinite and unique beauty. Let's document your journey....the messy, the goddess, the "as I am", the new love, the old love, and everything in between. Want to see if we are a good fit, let's connect....Cheers!



“Katie was simply amazing! We took our engagement pictures with her, she made us feel relaxed and it was a really fun experience and, of course, the photos were perfect. Katie and her husband Aaron took our wedding photos, I only have the sneak preview back and I am in love with the pictures already. They both have such an eye for the perfect photo.”
