  • Hello…

    and welcome to Life by Catherine! I am a natural light photographer based in Kitchener, Ontario. I have created this blog to showcase my work and allow you to follow me on my photographic journey.
    First, a little bit about ME. I am a mom to two beautiful daughters, a handsome Golden Retriever and a very mischievous kitty. You will get to meet all 4 of my babies throughout this blog.
    I also LOVE...reading.baking.movies.being outside.parks.salmon.grey's gossip.anything walks.travelling.1664 Blanc.
    Did I mention beautiful light and capturing your family, as is?
    Thanks for stopping by

Turning One, Miss A – Kitchener Children’s lifestyle photographer

Between blogging my current sessions, I’m also going to blog some sessions from last year I haven’t posted yet!  Every year, time gets away from me, maybe this will be the year I stay on-top of my blogging!   was so excited to meet Miss A for her first birthday, one is such a fun age!  Especially when they get to try a little bit of cake too!  She showed me her toys, and her beautiful room, and we got to play outside with some bubbles!  Here are a few of my faves, and don’t forget to leave some love in the comments!

Katie + Ned, Expecting – Kitchener maternity photographer

The last four month have been absolutely crazy.  CRAZY.  I have so much to share, I don’t even know where to begin!  If my current schedule is any indication, 2016 will be the year of sweet babies.  First up is Katie and Ned.  What a wonderful couple, and mama-to-be is just glowing!  She is also a holistic nutritionist specializing in prenatal nutrition, so if you are interested in her info, please let me know and I can pass it on!

We have been so lucky with weather this year, the temperatures have been mild enough for lots of outdoor sessions with snow!  I love winter shoots, they are so unique and beautiful.  Here are a few of my favourite images from Katie and Ned’s maternity session.  Don’t forget to leave them some love in the comments!

Pam - Congratulations! Beautiful photos! Looking forward to seeing your next photo shoot with your little one!

Trudy + Matt, expecting – Kitchener maternity photographer

As most of my clients know, I love getting to meet new people!  I always leave feeling like I just made new friends.  And this couple also happens to be neighbours, how cool is that?  One day our little ones will probably be playing at the park together.  I loved meeting Trudy and Matt, and as I am now editing their adorable newborn session, I thought I better pay some attention to my neglected blog and post their maternity session!  This session was shot at the park where Matt grew up, and in his parents’ front yard!  Here are a few of my faves, leave them some love in the comments!

Kitchener Pregnancy Announcement – Kitchener maternity photographer

I was so excited to do this pregnancy announcement mini session!  I don’t get a chance to do these very often and they are always so much fun!  Hollie and Birdie showed up with a box full of props, including that awesome bike!  We met at Victoria Park on a beautiful morning, even a swan joined us in couple of pictures.  This session was done in full secrecy, and now that they have made their announcement to family and friends I can share a few of my favourite images from our session!  Don’t forget to leave them some love in the comments!!

Terri + Jeff, Expecting – Cambridge Maternity Photographer

It has been a crazy summer so far in my household, but I am carving out some time this morning to update my blog before I hit the pool!  I am so excited to share this session!  The cherry blossoms were blooming, the mom-to-be was glowing (and seriously could not have looked more gorgeous) and dad couldn’t stop smiling!  Three of my favourite things!  Three years ago I shot their engagement session in the cherry blossoms, so we decided to head back to the same spot for this occasion.  I love getting to document their journey from engaged couple to expecting parents.  These are such joyous times and there is so much love.  Terri and Jeff are such an easy couple to photograph, it was so hard to pick just a few favourites, but here they are.  Please leave them lots of love in the comments!
