Hi! I’m Kate, and I am a photojournalist in Chicago. I specialize in music, weddings, and events, but I would love to expand my portfolio to other realms of photography. I am a freelance photographer for The Chicago Sun-Times and a full-time photographer and writer for Substream Magazine and Third Coast Review.


I am also a proud member of The Photo Ladies. We are not just a group of women photographers-we're a catalyst for change in a male-dominated industry. What started as a small but badass group of photographers in 2015 has now become a collective of over 200 members.

Awards, honors and recognition

I was one of seven women nationwide selected for an photography exhibit in 2018 at The Annex in Chicago. I was able to showcase my music photography alongside some of the most talented and inspiring women in the industry.

A fun fact about me

I've shot over 500 concerts and festivals!
