"For every kind soul you meet with a beautiful story to tell, may you know that you are worthy of being seen that way as well"
I am Kate, the hands and heart behind the camera.
Pausing sincere emotions in a photograph as they unfold fills my heart. Creating images with soul, grace, beauty, wonder... is a passion of mine. The camera lens for me is a looking glass, a vessel to share what I see and to pause the everyday beautiful things within it.
I want you to exist in photos and place your trust in me to capture you beautifully as your story unfolds. I want to encapsulate warmth, love and sincerity in our photographs together, allowing the image to hold onto what is important. I find such a joy in creating and walking alongside you.
My photography started a couple of years ago when I found myself photographing my four children daily. I was becoming more attentive to the beauty right in front of me and I wanted to create art my own heart needed. I am self taught and mentored with some amazing women to turn my love of photography into a creative business that fills my soul.
I am a mother to my 4 children and married to a beautiful creative man, Craig. Together we are slowly creating and fixing an old cottage we live in. I am a bit of a free spirit and lean towards simplicity and slow paced living, bare feet, dresses, and natural light is a love of mine. I love being a mother. Afternoon walks, picking and planting flowers, 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. After travelling Australia for some time with my husband was such a joy and I have dreams of wandering again one day with the family.
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built, or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way, so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.” - Ray Bradbury
