Katherine Magpie Photo

let's make
something wonderful,


I'm so glad you found me!

Hi! I’m Katherine Anderson, but you can call me Katherine Magpie. In addition to being an award-winning graphic and web designer, I’m a photographer based in Colorado Springs, CO. I love wandering the streets downtown, looking for new and unique perspectives to photograph.

I’m an animal lover, and my favorite subject is my fur-nephew, Tank. He’s always more than happy to model for Auntie, and while he doesn’t take direction very well, he also doesn’t give me any sass!

I believe every body is beautiful, and can’t wait to get YOU in front of my lens. Let’s hit up a bar or bookstore, a park or arcade, and shoot something wonderful. Want to walk around Manitou, or find a quiet place in Poor Richard’s? I’m your girl!

From boudoir to dudeoir, engagements, couples sessions, and everything in between, I’m itching to create memories that last a lifetime. I’ll be your biggest hype person, crack a few jokes and take photos you’ll love for a long time. 

Let’s make something wonderful, together.

Updates and Specials


As your favorite local photographer with a bad glass habit, I’m offering spooky sessions from now, Sept. 1st until Oct. 15th. Let’s make some spooky, all-together ooky, Halloween magic. From silly spooky to sexy spooky and everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) in between, if you’ve got a concept, I’ve got a camera!

Now Searching for: Perfect Strangers

Starting in September 2022, I will be offering monthly Stranger Sessions! Popular on social media, a Stranger Session is essentially a blind date with fantastic photos. We’ll meet in one of Colorado Springs most fantastic, intimate studios for a 2 hour session where we’ll make photographic magic.

In order to be considered for this Stranger Session, you MUST be comfortable with intimate poses, kissing, and other displays of affection during the session. While this session is ideally for extroverts, introverts and wallflowers may apply, too!

About Katherine

photographer, people-person, diet coke junkie

The thing I love most about photography is making people feel beautiful about themselves. I believe every body is a good body, regardless of size, shape, color, or creed. If you can sit, stand, or lay down in front of my lens, I’ll work to create lasting memories for you.


Summer 2019

Since 2019, I’ve been working hard to hone my photography skills. From humble beginnings, taking porch portraits with a 35mm on my first Nikon D3100, to capturing life’s little moments with a D7100 and a hulking 24-70mm lens, I have grown by leaps and bounds over the last 3 years.

I love shooting portraits and couples sessions. Look deep into my portfolio to see my most recent couples sessions, engagements, and wedding shoots.

Looking for the spicier fare? Dive even deeper for some styled boudoir shots.

Want a cuteness overload? There may even be a family session hiding in the archives… My portfolio is ever-growing, and constantly changing – You never know what you’ll find!

Just a Taste....
