In 2016, she made her directorial debut with All We Had, a drama that tells the story of a teenage mum looking for a fresh start with her daughter. Katie – a mum to 12-year-old Suri - spoke about motherhood, saying: "I think the universal theme of that love you have for your daughter and that love you have for your mother is so powerful. And I think that is very relatable wherever you fit in economically. And definitely being a daughter and being a mother, I understand that love and that bond. And I think it's something that should be highlighted and celebrated in film."
