Welcome to Stories & Snapshots, a blog that houses book reviews and rants, as well as weekly photography features. I hope that by visiting you will be able to take part in the discussion, or enjoy the imagery!

I’m Katie, the fifteen year-old founder of Stories & Snapshots. I started blogging in the fall of 2015 after I realized it would be the perfect way to combine my love for reading, photography, and the Internet. I got right to work, set up my own little corner of the web, and here I am today!


Reading has always played an enormous role in my life; I read my first book in Kindergarten, and never stopped! Being able to travel to other places without even leaving the couch is pretty amazing if you ask me; plus, I always gain a new way of looking at the world around me. Reading has definitely shaped who I am today, and by creating this blog I wanted to connect with others who have had similar experiences.


I LOVE to take photos, although I’d like to acknowledge that I’m still an amateur photographer! I’ve only been shooting for a few years, ever since my parents surprised me with my very own camera for Christmas. All of my photos are shot with my trusty Canon Rebel t3i, equipped with a 50 – 250 mm lens.


Thank you for visiting my blog, and please feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email! You can contact me here.
