Kathy Pothier Photography | About

Hello! Thank you for taking a minute to learn a little bit about me. My name is Kathy and I am passionate about lots of things.  Like the Gorge.  I LOVE it here!  I felt so moved by this area, in fact, that I introduced my husband to it and together we moved our entire family here (3 boys, 2 cats, and a hedgehog) all the way from New England. The stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and the Gorge specifically, just makes me smile and appreciate life.  Every. Single. Day.  


I am also passionate about photography.  I have been a professional photographer for just under 10 years now.  That feels like both a l-o-n-g time AND the blink of an eye.  I have a background in both fashion and lifestyle photography which comes through in my work.  I treat each job as an individual project.  I adapt where needed and enjoy laughing with you throughout the process.  Once we are through I want us both to feel like we "nailed it".


For weddings I want you to be able to look back at your images and feel the warmth and love surrounding you on your big day.  I capture the little details along with the little moments that make up the big day.  


For small businesses I aim to capture who you are, and what you do, in a way that showcases your services to clients.  


For families my goal is to have fun.  I do not want kids, or adults, to stand there with a cheesy smile.  That does not look good on anyone.  I create a space where you engage with me and and each other in an authentic way.  Actually laughing.  That showcases your personality & beauty.  


I invite you to look through my website and decide if my style is the the right fit for you.
