If this were an April Fools joke, it would be the more elaborate joke of all time! But it’s not a joke, it’s very much for real. After five years as Katie Dessin Photography, after five years of blue being my identity, after five years of logos creatively representing my service in Oregon, I have allowed myself to release from that and find a new way to grow.
I've been told so many times by people close to me that my identity is equal parts photographer and actress, although this may come as a surprise to some. But it doesn't really stop there, does it? I'm a creator. I make a living off of photography. I fill my heart's desires with acting. I write because it makes me happy. I talk about skincare because it's important to me. I design because it's challenging and I like a challenge. I am not just one thing. To put myself and my business in a box was a disservice to my many passions and honestly my personality!
In January I was challenged to do something unorthodox with my business. What can be more radical than scrapping my title? I am Katie. This is me. I am multi-passionate. I want to share my acting journey with you. I want to proudly tell you how I stopped biting my nails. I want to show off photos of my clients. I want to write movie reviews! This is who I am. And if we only get one life on Earth, I want to do my work the way I feel called to.
Welcome to my new home. I'm so glad you're here.
