I am beguiled by WONDER and long to stay in a precious moment a little longer.
I capture ART MY OWN HEART NEEDS when I spy through my looking glass, the camera lens. The camera allows me to become more attentive to the beauty right in front of me. I have fallen in love with story telling and THE ART OF PHOTOGRPAHY.
My heart is connected to the everyday beautiful, especially the delicious chapters in my children's lives. Weaved in my time as a mother is where my journey to becoming a photographer began. I wanted to pick up a camera to press pause on my children's lives. I never set out to become a photographer however the impulse to choose the camera was strong and intrinsic and I leapt in whole heartedly.
The unscripted joy, heart anchored memories, moments in between moments, big belly laughs, oh... the golden afternoon light, wild blooms, the little details, the emotive sensations, the gift of life and families, motherhood is what I notice and where I want to be. Following and sitting in these loves of mine allowed my photography to naturally bloom. I am self taught and have mentored with some beautiful photographers the past couple of years to create Kate Weier Photography that is led from the HEART. 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, bought a van and we travelled and lived all over Australia. Craig was born and 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 their mother. We slowly fix and renovate an old cottage we live in today. I help behind the scenes with my husbands building business. I am a bit of a free spirit, a sensitive soul. 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 my children 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. Climbing, fire making, stick, rock and feather collecting is a love of my boys and gathering wild flower posies and baking is a love of my daughters.
