Hey, Hi, Hello!
So glad you're here!
I am a twenty something based in Lincoln, Nebraska. My favorite things are snuggling up in a giant purple blanket my mom bought me, going to local restaurants with my close friends, singing too loudly and dancing really badly to bops from the early 2000’s, eating waaayyyy too much pizza, falling off of treadmills, and most importantly my amazing job. I often wonder how I got lucky enough to do what I do. Like seriously, I celebrate people’s biggest days with them, constantly get to make new clients into new friends, and eat A LOT of wedding cake… it doesn’t get any better! When I’m not behind the camera I’m most likely binge watching vampire diaries, sipping on some hot tea, waiting for my pizza to arrive, and snuggling my roommates Pomeranian (follow me on insta and snap chat @katelynannrowan to see Kiki in all his glory). Otherwise I am searching for my next adventure in whatever form it may come.
What I’m all about
I’m going to get real here for a second… ready?
My work has been called “messy” a few times. At first I was really offended and thought that it in some way meant my work wasn’t good, but then it hit me… my work really IS messy AND I LOVE THAT! Why? Because life is messy. Life is wind blown hair, laughing so hard you cry, eskimo kisses while still wrapped in your sheets, late night taco bell runs, your grandmother pinching your cheeks, and your dad crying the first time he sees you on your big day. Life isn’t prom date poses. Life is messy and beautiful just the same. This is what I aim to capture every time I pick up my camera. Check out my blog posts to see for yourself!
How I make magic happen
The first step in creating images that truly represent who you are right now in this stage of life depends on getting to know each other. I want to be your friend, not just another vendor. I want to know what makes you who you are and what makes your relationship special on a deeper level.
Why I do what I do
If money wasn’t a thing and no one truly needed to work, I would still do what I do. This isn’t just a job to me it is truly a passion. Why, you may ask? BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT. I don’t want your children and grandchildren to look at your pictures and say, “oh she was so pretty” or “her dress was nice”. I want them to look at your pictures and say, “wow they were so in love”, “they were so goofy together!”, “That is the kind of relationship I want for myself”. I want your photos to be a brief snippet of what and who you are.
“I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list”
My passion for travel and exploring started early on in my life. My grandpa built a cabin at the Calamus Reservoir and we visited every summer. I spent my time running through the sand dunes, swimming in the lake, making forts in the trees, and realizing my love of all things adventure.
I am willing, able, and yearning to travel and love that my job gives me the opportunity to do just that! Want to have a session in another part of Nebraska? Lets go! Want to head out to the west coast? I’m ready! Want to bring me to wherever you may be? Give me an hour to pack, grab a coffee, blast my roadtrip playlist, and I’ll be on my way.
