I am so excited to introduce you to our Fall intern, Katie! She has been anxiously awaiting her internship to begin all year since we offered her the job back in February and we have been excited to have here with us! Because Katie has been assisting us at wedding since the Spring, she fit right into our team in the studio so seamlessly. And let me tell you this girl knows how to get things done!! She is so productive and such a hard worker. She joyfully accepts every task we give her with a servant’s heart and jumps right in. Typically we have our interns join us in the studio for two full days, but because of Katie’s work schedule we get to have her for a couple of hours every morning, which has been such a delight! I’m so excited for you to get to know her today!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and where you are in life right now.
My name is Katie and I am 21 years old! I am the daughter of two loving parents, and the baby sister of an awesome older brother. I am currently working part time in marketing for a local business, I nanny part time for two perfect little boys, and I run my own photography business as well! While I love all of these things, the dream is to one day be able to take on my photography business as my full time job.
Where are you from?
I grew up in Wake Forest, North Carolina
What attracted you to apply for this internship?
I have always heard of Nancy Ray Photography and how highly people have spoken of her and her team’s work. Although their evident love for the Lord is what ultimately drew me to apply for this position. Surrounding myself with others that have the same passions as me has always been extremely important.
What do you love about photography?
I love that you could take 100 pictures of the same thing yet they could all look different. The creativity in this field is endless which is pretty encouraging if you ask me!
What are you passionate about?
This might sound odd but I am passionate about people. I love nothing more than creating meaningful and genuine relationships with people I get to meet! Being a photographer has given me so many awesome opportunities to be able to pour into the lives of my clients and for that I am so grateful!
What are some small things that make your day better?
If you ask any of my friends, they would tell you to give me an iced coffee and a dog. Call me basic but those two things can instantly turn my day around!!
What’s the last adventure you went on?
This summer me and three friends spent a week exploring and adventuring the Cayman Islands!
What is your favorite book?
Truthfully I don’t remember the last time I read a book all the way through…I’m not much of a reader! I don’t have the attention span for it…
What is your favorite food?
Anything Italian, pasta all day everyday!
What is something that no one else knows about you?
A lot of people don’t know that I played basketball in college.
What is your favorite thing to do on a beautiful day?
I love love love the ocean. So I would say taking a day trip down to the beach!
What are you excited about in the next 12 months?
Seeing where my photography business takes me! I have so much to learn and I know the amazing opportunity to do this internship will give me so much amazing insight to further my knowledge about running a business!
Coffee or Tea?
Coffee every time.
Are you a morning person or night owl?
Definitely a night owl, I am 10x more productive that time of day!
What are you grateful for right now?
Hands down my family and closest friends. They have consistently been so loving and supportive towards me and I don’t know where I would be without them.
