Hey, I'm Katie!
I'm so glad you're here! I promise you, you're in the right place!
I've been behind the camera since the black and white film and darkroom days (that's over 20 years!), and in business since 2018. I'm a Collingwood resident and a Toronto expat. If I don't have a camera in my hand, you'll likely find me hiking in the Bruce Trail with my hubby and our three kiddos (8 and under).
I bring a wealth of technical knowledge and artistic intuition to my work from a fine arts education. But beyond all that, as a mother of three and a qualified newborn photographer, I offer the utmost care and safety to my youngest clients! (Yes, I'm fully vaccinated!) I work out of a dedicated home studio in Collingwood and I offer on-location services for families in Collingwood, The Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Meaford, Stayner, Wasaga Beach, and other areas of Simcoe County and Grey County.
I am your resident baby whisperer, toddler wrangler, and memory catcher, and I love what I do! I am constantly honoured and humbled to be asked by my clients to preserve the excitement and joy of their milestones, and I cannot wait to hear from you and learn about yours!

I honestly don’t have words to describe my incredible experience in every aspect working with Katie. When I first reached out to her about scheduling a newborn photo session in the midst of the Covid pandemic I had a lot of uncertainty whether I wanted to even take the risk with a newborn. Katie was great and outlined all the precautions she was taking in studio to ensure our safety. She was so gentle when handling our newborn always making sure the first priority was the baby and that she was warm and comfortable. I was so thrilled with the finished product that I even purchased more images than I initially bought with my package. I highly recommend Katie to everyone she is a very personable, caring and trustworthy individual. You will not be disappointed!
"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND KATIE TO EVERYONE!"
Our experience with Katie was beyond fabulous. Katie was so good at making us feel comfortable, and suggesting poses. The whole session went smoothly. Pretty amazing considering I have a husband and 4 year old son that aren’t fans of getting their picture taken, and a feisty 6 year old. Katie is a true professional from start to finish. From settling on a date/time, switching it because of weather, picture day, to proofs, to selecting photos, and editing, she has made sure every detail was taken care of.
Working with Katie was an absolute pleasure. She was so thoughtful in her approach and conducted the photo shoot in an organized and professional manner. I was blown away when I received the photos. The images are absolutely gorgeous, and I have cherished being able to look back at them. The photos truly captured such a milestone moment in our lives. All care and caution were taken to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed. I will definitely be a return customer, and highly recommend her services! I cannot thank her enough for capturing such a special time in my life!
"I cannot thank her enough!"
We have had such amazing sessions with Katie! She did my son's newborn pictures as well as his first birthday cake smash and I couldn't be more happy with them. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. We arrived at his cake smash shoot to see a beautiful background set up according to the theme we chose. She is very accommodating, generous, and edited the photos very quickly. I can't wait to document more milestones with this amazing photographer. Never been happier with a photo session!! Can't say enough great things about her!

Katie is so creative and had some amazing ideas for staging for our newborn shoot. She really went the extra mile to welcome our daughter to her home studio (and us as well) while she had frequent communication before hand to plan out ideas. She even had a welcome sign set up with our daughter's name along with coffee for us. I loved how our shoot was a mix of both of our ideas put to her expertise. We will continue to use Katie for our family photo needs.

The amazingly talented Katie Lintern of did our family photo shoot on our 15th wedding anniversary. I left the shoot thinking "That felt good, we will see what she captured" and was completely blown away when these arrived the other day. Katie, you have captured our family so well, too well perhaps, as we don't usually look this magical!
"I was completely blown away!"
This is the best time to reach out! I only take on a limited number of clients each month so I can balance my business with my family life (that's me and my crew right there). I often book up a month or two out, so make sure to fill out the form below if you're contemplating a session over the next few months. I'm SO excited to connect with you!
