We will cherish her work forever!"

"Cathy just did an amazing job capturing my daughters little 5th Birthday celebration. Her unobtrusive way of moving around and snapping friends and family in the moment has created some really beautiful memories for us to treasure and look back on. We even have natural, un-posed photos of family members that usually find photo taking uncomfortable. I would absolutely recommend her for birth and family photography as she makes you feel so safe and comfortable with her gentle presence."

—Nicola

"My best friend, Georgia, and I were 3 months apart in our first pregnancies and had the pleasure of Cathy photographing us together. When we met Cathy she was so warm and welcoming to us and had a lovely presence about her that made us feel so comfortable even in the Hamilton gardens with people walking by as we were photographed. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a photographer!"

Her calm demeanor and soft voice made me feel comfortable to include her during this personal time. Her professionalism shined bright during the most sacred moments.
