"Enjoys long, romantic walks through the vineyard." Just kidding- but not really. 

I've always loved making things "pretty". By age 7, you could find me digging into my mom's makeup stash and rearranging our family room, again. From Cosmetologist to Retail Merchandiser, my career path has always been that of a creative. Now that I'm working that 9-5 office grind, Mae & Co is my creative outlet for all things pretty yet practical. I truly hope you find inspiration to live your simply beautiful life here. 

My husband and I  grew up near and now live in Rochester, MN with our rescue dogs. For a smaller city, there sure is a lot to do- and interesting people to meet. One of my favorite past times is sitting down for a drink with a stranger who soon becomes a friend. No one's path is linear, and everyone's story is worth sharing. In the area? I'd love to connect and hear yours! 




Hi, my name is Katie! I was born in Rochester, MN and currently reside in Kasson, a small community 12 miles west of Rochester. I began free-lance photography in 2013 while working alongside a friend capturing weddings and senior and family portraits. I have a passion for bringing to life my clients visions while creating memories in present day, and for years to come. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with Mae & Co to share their vision and multifaceted passion with creativity and design. I’m excited for this new venture and look forward to my future endeavors in the photography industry.
