Katie Royce Zolezzi is a native Oregonian, and was raised in the tiny town of Elkton. She loves living in a state so rich with life and beauty.

Katie is passionate about photography, and remembers feeling a strong draw to it even as a child. She is especially intrigued with nature.  Her photographs are diverse, but common themes include beauty and serenity. She enjoys uncovering details that might otherwise be missed, and finds it especially exciting to discover beauty in unexpected things.

For Katie, capturing photographs is meditative and inspiring. It allows her to slow down and enjoy the amazing beauty that surrounds us. This art form reinforces to her the connection that we all share. She hopes that others find inspiration, and feel that connection as well, when viewing her photographs. 

Katie enjoys wonderful support and encouragement from her family. With the help of her husband, she is able to pursue her passion. Her children’s energy and love of life help her to continue seeing the world with new eyes. She, her husband, and their two young children reside in Cottage Grove, Oregon.
