My Story

My name is Catherine, people call me Cat. I live in Bellevue, Iowa with my husband and our favorite tiny people - Alex, Blake, & Cole. Family time is everything, and my camera is omnipresent. Although I try my best never to utter the words, "Say cheese!" I have been known to suggest, "Why don't you come play over here... the light is so pretty."

Outdoor weddings, handwritten vows, a bright bouquet of wildflowers, teary-eyed embraces, & soft light that makes a bride's eyes sparkle -- these are things that inspire me. 

On a wedding-free Saturday you can still find me behind the camera -- maybe laying on my belly in the backyard, intensely capturing my son's chubby little fingers gripping his favorite color sidewalk chalk.

I'm a homebody by nature, but there's little a venti Starbucks & a long stroll through Target can't cure. I'm a newly minted mini van Mom, & weekend adventures involve my camera riding shotgun in my brightly colored bag + three adorable little faces, intensely watching Minions... again.

I believe that everyday life is worth documenting, and the little stuff really is the big stuff. I celebrate half-birthdays & happily save theme park wristbands & crumpled up ticket stubs. Everyone has stories, and I'd love to help you tell yours.

I believe in focused storytelling, delighting in the details Let's tell your story
Things I Love memory keeping
handwritten cards
saving every movie ticket stub
lazy sunday mornings

my coffee is never decaf,
and my target runs are never quick.
