Hello! My name is Cath I live with my two kids , my great husband and our dog Baxter. We live in a little house on a hill on a few acres on the edge of a little town called Bellingen.
I have always been interested in photography, of all my hobbies and interests and obsessions of various kinds I have always returned to photography. In the last few years I have realised it is what I always wanted to do.
I have spent the last 15 years working as a Social Worker/ Counsellor with children, young people and adults who have experienced trauma in their lives. These skills have served me well with my photography, in that I am able to make people feel at ease really quickly. I also have a successful small business on Etsy, and in the past I have mentored other sellers and taught workshops about selling on Etsy too.
But back to photography! I love photographing messy houses! I love to capture the yelling and laughing, the grubby hands and messy faces, the dancing and dressing up. I love sneaking up and watching them play through the almost closed door. I love watching families play at the beach and snapping them laughing with each other- not always looking at the camera and often not even aware of it. I love to capture the every day moments of sloppy kisses and hugs and little moments that are so quickly forgotten. I will not ask you to pose in uncomfortable or un-natural ways- but if you have ideas I'm happy to do them - family pyramid anyone!? Nor will I tell you what to wear- you can wear all the patterns and all the colours! I love photographing community events and family gatherings.
