Katie Newburn was born and raised in the Napa Valley; the perfect environment to nurture her early passion for food and photography. At sixteen she became involved in the local restaurant scene, from there increasingly engaged with chefs, artisanal and slow food businesses, local sustainable farms, and wine makers.

As her passions increased, so too did her desire to use photography as a medium to capture the love shared at the dining table, to give back and support the local and sustainable food movement, and to offer her own unique perspective.

Katie invites the viewer to sit next to her and taste what she tastes; to experience what she experiences. Her photographs reflect the stories of her subjects, beyond that her desire to celebrate each individual person, intimate moment and the emotions they give.
