About Katie


bioheaderKatie Blattel is a photographer in Cape Girardeau, specializing in fun, interactive family sessions, as well as outdoor maternity and high school senior portraits.

A few things about me:

My husband and I recently welcomed our first baby, a little boy, into the world. You’ll likely find his pictures all over my website and studio!

I can’t pick a favorite color. Unless it’s glitter. Okay, glitter is my favorite color.

I absolutely love to travel. I want to see the world!

I love animals. I have two cats and an adorable boxer, but if I could, I’d have a whole farm full of animals.

I have a degree in video production and another in digital photography. The latter I received at Harrington College of Design in Chicago, and my time there was the time of my life…. I truly thought I was destined to be a commercial food photographer! I quickly realized, however, that portraits were calling my name. So I moved back to my hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and set up shop. I quickly found my niche in newborn photography, but I now split my time between babies and high school seniors!

I love photography. It is my passion, my livelihood, my calling. It would make me SO happy to photograph you and your loved ones. It’s very important that you choose a photographer that meets your needs and has the style of photography that you would be proud to display in your home. I take pride in the fact that I am a full service photographer- I want to give you a wonderful experience from a pre-session consultation all the way through to your viewing and ordering appointment. Please contact me and we can decide if we are a good fit for each other!
