Kate McLean Photography, LLC is proudly based out of Orlando, Florida. Kate is a 9th generation native Floridian with a long line of family members in Florida’s citrus industry. She grew up helping to grow a large organic garden and climbing orange trees in her Grandparent’s back yard in the small town of Sebring, Florida. Her photography style is heavily influenced by her native Floridian status contrasted with her love of adventurous world travel.
A self-proclaimed super fan of SNL and all things comedy, Kate’s personality is that of a closet improv comic. Always looking for a laugh or good bit has become a love that is second only to photography. Growing up the youngest of 3 – with two older brothers – lead to a permanent tomboy streak and “annoying little sister” syndrome. Kate likes to spend time at the local library and read books by comedic writers including Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, George Carlin and anything else she can get her hands on.
Kate finds inspiration in perusing photographs in the pages of National Geographic, Time, Humans of New York, and the Wall street Journal. Her favorite photography books are Q & A by Zach Arias, and It’s What I Do by Lyndsay Addario. Kate has experience as an international travel photographer and photographing destination weddings. She has had the opportunity to photograph in Israel, London, Germany, Monaco, France, Austria, Ireland, Holland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and in all four corners of the United States of America but she maintains that the best practice of photography is the intimate capture of a family in their happiest moments– no matter the location.
