Katie Anderson / Sacramento, CA

Hi I’m Katie Anderson, your local Momtography Teacher and Club Leader, and Teentography teacher in Northern California. I live in Elk Grove, California (just south of Sacramento), with my husband, two awesome kiddos and our rescue dog Reavus.  I am an amateur photographer and high school English Teacher. I fell in love with photography more than 20 years ago through my high school photography classes, and have been so excited to rediscover both the technical and emotional aspects of photography now as a mom! 

I love Momtography and Teentography because these programs teach students how to Capture What Matters!  The messy, difficult, hilarious and amazing moments that shape our every day lives.  I was inspired to return to photography as a new mom because I realized that while these days of motherhood are looooooong, the years are short, and at the end of the day, all we will have are our memories, so I love getting to capture those for my family. One of my all time favorite things is working with someone in one of my classes and seeing that moment that everything just Clicks! and their confidence starts to grow!

When I’m not teaching, we love to be active as a family and are often outside enjoying our beautiful California surroundings either at the beach, our local nature preserves and trails, or up in the mountains.  I love to bake and cook, take a ton of pictures, go wine tasting and spend time with family and friends!

My next Teentography and Momtography classes will both be online due to COVID-19.  Check out the dates and details below, and I look forward to getting to help you #CaptureWhatMatters!
