I am Kate, the hands and heart behind the camera. You may be reading this because you resonate with my style and love for visual storytelling. Pausing sincere emotions in a photograph as they unfold to create images with soul and wonder is a passion of mine. The camera lens for me is a looking glass, a vessel to share what I see and I love to see you, nature and the everyday beautiful things within it. I want you to exist in photos and place your trust in me to capture you beautifully. The things I long for in my clients are what I have learned and are learning to honour most in myself. I love to tell the story, your story as it unfolds and let the image hold onto what is important. I find such a joy in creating and walking alongside you. I am a lover of words however sometimes words cant describe how much you loved your children or that unscripted moment oozing beauty and joy, the warmth and love you are and that you share.... I am there to capture it.
My photography started a couple of years ago when I was becoming more attentive to the beauty right in front of me. I wanted to create art my own heart needed after loosing someone dear to me. Photographing my children became a daily ritual. From there I taught myself and mentored with some amazing women to turn my love of photography into a creative business that fills my soul. I have been so humbled that I am on a journey of photography and creating.
I am based in Toowoomba with my 4 children and husband Craig. Craig and I have established our building business CDW Building where his passion for details and older homes supports our family. I have worked in early childhood and dabbled in other jobs but I a very lucky and chose to stay home and raise our children whilst working at home in the office to support our business.
Me, well I am a bit of a free spirit with a tender heart. I lean towards simplicity, bare feet and natural light is a love of mine. Home is an old cottage in town that we are slowly making ours. Some walls you will find have pen or paint etched into them from the little ones. We bake, we play, we make a mess. I lean into holistic and slow living, filling a vase with hand picked flowers, long dresses, weekends are for wandering, creating and long drives are loves of mine. I love slow afternoons and listening to chapters of others fills my heart. I was born and raised in Atherton in Far North Queensland and call Toowoomba home.... for now. I have dreams of wandering again one day with the family.
