Hi! I'm Katy Daixon Wimer.
The dorky sap
I’m a southern Wisconsin photographer, storyteller, soul dweller, and poet dedicated to telling your story and reconnecting you to yourself.
I adore rice, my journal, and my cats. I'm in love with Love and deep conversation, eating really tasty food, and taking naps with my husband (who is awesome, and also, often my second shooter).
When I'm not shooting your portraits, you can catch me stretching out on my yoga mat, doing oracle card readings for insight and guidance, or taking an abundance of nature photos on Instagram. You'll usually hear me talk about food, self-care, and feelings. My favorite part of the day are those magic morning hours before the world wakes up where I get to reflect and breathe.
Capturing/telling your stories and guiding you toward a deeper connection with yourself light me up. This is where the healing happens. Let's get your best self out into the world.
The What, How, & Why
What you can expect from my:
Photography: Naturalness. Quirkiness. Ease.
I've been photographing life since I received a hand-me-down camera in fifth grade, and I realized that there is something incredibly delicious about holding moments and expressions still for an eternity.
Storytelling Projects: Expression of who you are, where you are. Your creative expression. Grace.
Storytelling and writing is how I express myself and make sense of my world...has been since I was three and told stories about purple Santas, giraffes at grocery stores, and elephants walking downtown. Then, I went deeper into writing about my journey through life when I was gifted a journal in third grade.
It wasn't until I did The Body Project that I realized I loved telling your stories and photographing you at a moment on your journey.
Poetry: It’s raw. It’s full of gut-punches. It lingers.
Poetry and me are like PB&J. I'm obsessed with providing a snippet of life in as little words as possible so it leaves you reflecting.
