I'm the third of four girls (sorry Dad!), lover of all things FUNKY (mainly music, definitely not smells), passionate cheerleader of my husband, family, friends and communities and I like to channel my 5-year-old-self when choosing clothing (think dungarees and polka dots).
Documentaries are my only obsession (my love for Frida Kahlo and confetti are close seconds...and music...ok I have a few!) My hair is all kinds of curly (but I do love to pretend I'm Avril Lavigne every now and then). I can't dance but my feet don't care and I can't not sing along to the radio (who's with me?!).
My dream is to live on a farm with my friends and family. We'd eat together, create together and host mini music festivals! I'd have a gaggle of geese to follow me around, wooly jumpers to keep me warm and the kettle would always be on. We'd help raise each other's children and swap carrots for cucumbers.
Wide open spaces.
Coffee flavoured everything.
Old photo albums at your parents house with photos missing (sorry Mum!)
I'm not great at small talk but love to dig deep about the meaty things instead. I re-read my favourite books and listen to songs on repeat. I would take fairy lights as my luxury item to my desert island.
ABOUT MY WORK
I started this journey about seven or eight years ago when faced with the threat of a debilitating life-long illness. Photography dragged me out of bed and out of the dark cloud time and time again. It forced me to overcome my fears and showed me that there was still so much beauty to be found in the world, but especially in the faces of those around me. It somehow dug out and grabbed on to what fight and passion I had left and made it bloom and grow, along with the rest of me.
Whizzing forward to today I am constantly and eagerly learning more, finding I need less, trusting the years that have gone before me and enjoying where my camera takes me more and more. I am fully in the Canon camp but love to bring my polaroid to shoots and I love experimenting with filming too.
I strive to be authentic, trustworthy and fun - and to empower people to find beauty in their own image. This part of my life exists to capture raw emotion, to express creativity and most of all to celebrate life through photography.
Please feel free to contact me using the form below with no obligations - I’d love to hear from you (what would your luxury item be?!).
"Kate is an amazing photographer who we were lucky enough to have for our wedding and a shoot of our 21 month old twins. Kate captured our wedding day perfectly. The pictures are just beautiful and it showed how much time and care she had put into them. The pictures of our twins are gorgeous, she put the children at ease and was warm and friendly throughout. Kate has such a creative talent and has the ability to capture a person perfectly." -Mrs S
