Portland Photographer of People and Places

As an artist, my brain works in a VERY different way than most. While someone else might have a photographic memory, or be brilliant at counting, or have an incredible sense of direction (I get lost trying to go around the block), I can close my eyes and see color combination, style, pattern, best lighting, or the perfect angle to shape someone’s face.

I am a Portland photographer, born and raised, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with people and the arts — a dynamite combo for a professional photographer. And I may be a bit of a people pleaser, which makes me work extra hard to get the shots that will blow you away.

Quick facts: I have seven siblings that I am insanely close to. My Dad is a retired architect and most of my siblings and their families work with art, design or architecture. My parents have been married for over 50 years. I am completely obsessed with my kids! Like, beyond obsessed. And every day, I fall more in love with my husband. I also LOVE new socks! Traveling. Genuine laughter. Witty people. I hate the sound of a heart monitor and love the sound of my kids giggling. I wonder what would happen if I heard them giggling over a heart monitor. Solve that one! I get excited over a good binge watch and cry easily at any movie that involves a sports team and a dad and son mending a troubled relationship.

I started Kitta Bodmer Photography in 2004 because my Dad could not stop talking about what a great job I had done documenting our own family vacation to China.

Hire me! We will have a blast, and you will crave more!
