Hi, I'm Katie - the girl behind Posie Photography!
I have been a photographer for 12 years now, qualifying in 2008. Originally from the UK, where I dabbled in various styles of photography, working and learning under different companies, before I fell in love with portraiture.
Why do I love taking portraits? I love creating that smile, that moment, that little cuddle! For those that have had a portrait by me, I'm sure they'll agree that I make them feel positively relaxed, and if they're not, I make them feel so awkward that they can't help it but laugh - and there's my shot!
My experience grew with baby & family portraiture in England, with two major companies, before travelling to Australia to further my career. Within weeks of being there, I landed my first Studio Manager role in Perth, Western Australia. I was then sponsored as a Studio Manager for one of Australia's Largest Child Portrait Companies, which took me almost all over the country! It was such an amazing experience.
Why Ireland? I met my fiancé and followed him over to County Limerick! In July 2015, I set up my first home studio - Posie Photography! It has since flourished, and in 2018 I opened my commercial premises in Newcastle West.
During this time I have completed several Newborn Posing & Safety courses, both online and in person, and I am a proud member of the International Newborn Photographers Association.
I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story!
