Hi, I'm Catherine Davis- photographer, mother, wife, outdoor enthusiast, cancer survivor & bicycling junkie.
A professional photographer for more than 20 years, I specialize in location lighting with an editorial twist and work with families and businesses to create images that tell their story.
For personal photography, what has kept me passionate for family portraits all of these years is the ability to create images that families treasure. Our lives run at such a hectic pace that it is important to hit the pause button to savor the moment. I realize that getting your family together, cleaned up and dressed for photos can be stressful, so the first part of every session for me is to set the mood-- we might start lively and playful or relaxed and serene. The end goal is the same- to capture a combination of posed portraits and candids with those moments of connection, contemplation or emotion. Authenticity. The photography doesn't end on session day. After I edit the session, we review the proofs together, in person or online meeting, using specialty software to pick favorites and make a plan so that you can be confident and excited about your order.
In commercial photography, the satisfaction of helping companies visually communicate to their clients and making the experience of the dreaded headshot a positive one brought me back to commercial work two years ago. Companies need photographs for many reasons. Sometimes, the turnaround is just as important as creativity. Other times it is the ability to work in a challenging location. Universally, companies want a photographer who understands the scope of the project and can deliver the images on budget and on time.
