I have fallen in love with story telling whilst creating art my own heart needed. My hearts desire is to create heart centered portraits.
I gently approach each session with sensitivity, warmth, curiosity and creativity.
The camera is a looking glass, a vessel that allows me to become more attentive to the beauty in front of me.
My photography began a few years ago when weaved in my time as a mother I miscarried a little girl and I believe this is where my love for photography really began to bloom. I had always loved photos but never drawn or seek out to take them however I was so drawn to the everyday beautiful especially the delicious chapters in my children's lives. The unscripted joy, the real authentic moments, the afternoon light that would pour into my window or kiss my children's face, the colours and the details I noticed in the beautiful blooms made me want to create and capture art my own heart needed. And without realising it I was slowly beginning to learn THE ART OF PHOTOGRPAHY.
I am self taught and have mentored with some beautiful photographers to create this creative, HEART LED business, Kate Weier Photography. Home for me, is being married to a beautiful soul and creative himself, Craig. We fell in love at first sight, a story I love to tell my children. When we decided to get married it happened within weeks and travelled and lived all over Australia in the back of a van. Craig was born in grew up in Papua New Guinea and myself in Atherton, FNQ. For the moment we call Toowoomba home and is where we have planted our feet. Together we raise our 4 beautiful children, Bridie, Balun, Narah and Ryah. Loving their hearts and holding their hands is the most important thing in my world, I love being a mother. We slowly fix and renovate an old cottage we live in today. I help behind the scenes with my husbands building business, CDW Building. I am a bit of a free spirit, a sensitive soul, a big feeler. I lean towards simplicity and slow paced living, bare feet and slow walks. I love to wear long dresses, gardening and natural light is a love of mine. I have chosen to stay home with them as they grow. I have dabbled in different professions and was an early education teacher before having my own children. We get messy and creative at home, love long drives and wandering. Finding a little water hole to swim in is a love of ours. Growing flowers and gardening is my new found love. Fire making, stick and feather collecting is a must for the kids, they are always gathering little treasures and know that if they see a feather to collect it and add it to my jar on my desk. .
