My name is Katie, and I love to put a smile on people’s faces by photographing them with their loved ones.

I’m wife to Tom, and mum to three-year-old Sienna and baby boy Joey. I’m originally from Poole in Dorset, but now live in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, after a five-year adventure in Melbourne, Australia.

It was in Melbourne that I fell in love with portrait photography and founded Katie Lister Photography. After ten years in the corporate world, photography provided me with a creative outlet and the satisfying feeling that my work had a positive impact on the lives of others. Seeing a parent shed a (happy) tear when viewing my photographs of their family evoked such a strong reaction in me – one that I hadn’t experienced in my office job.

Since the birth of my first child, I’ve taken the plunge and packed up my calculator to carry my camera full-time. I’m excited about continuing my photographic journey, and about the families I can meet in the process.

My photography style is very relaxed. I like to have fun with the children and families that I’m photographing – I find it puts everyone at ease and helps me capture genuine and candid images.

My photography sessions take place on weekends, either in your home or on location. I offer print-ready digital images to my clients, as well as bespoke framing and prints.

When I’m not behind my camera, you'll find me at the park with my children, in the kitchen baking delicious treats (with at least one small helper by my side!), or at the theatre enjoying a musical.
