I believe that a picture can say so much more than say cheese.
Your day-to-day life isn't boring; it's a beautiful story just waiting to be told and remembered.
Your house is not too messy, your kids are not too energetic, you don't need to change to remember this moment.
Let’s work together to document, honor and preserve your everyday.
After all, it’s the sum of all of your “ordinary” days that make your life extraordinary.
Hi, I'm Catherine!
I love taking photos, but making connections with families and telling their stories is what really floats my boat.
Who you are, what you love, what makes you laugh or brings tears to your eyes--
These are the things you will see in the photos we make together.
I want to create art that you’ll want to hang on your wall, with images that paint a beautifully realistic portrait of who you are right now, photos that you’ll want to print in an album to thumb through over and over again.
Let’s work together to create a remembrance of who you really are and embark on a journey to tell a modern and heartfelt, honest and empathetic story of your life.
Maybe you want to remember a quiet Saturday morning at home.
Perhaps your nightly dinner, bath, bedtime routine is something you never want to forget.
No matter the specifics, your daily lived experiences are rich and poignant stories waiting to be told.
Let's tell those stories together.
"Catherine has such a gentle and unobtrusive way about her that I have finally been able to relax and allow myself to be seen and photographed in the way that I have always longed for."
"When I saw our photo proofs for the first time, I cried. Catherine so perfectly captured the profound joy our whole family was feeling. It was as if she had done the impossible, frozen time. The photographs she took that day did that for our family."
