Hi, I’m Cathy and I really do believe “A picture is worth a thousand words”

Looking through photos can bring a flood of memories and emotions. It can transport you back to a place, remind you of the warmth and even the smells, reinforce that memory of the twinkle in your grandpa’s eyes, the look of love as you said your “I do’s”, or the overwhelming joy at the birth of a child.

That’s what I love most about photography. Capturing beautiful images for people to enjoy and share with their friends and loved ones for years to come. Photos that will make you laugh, cry, and say “remember when…”

Besides photography, I love exploring near my home in Northern Michigan – hiking, biking, and paddle boarding the crystal clear lakes. Some other favorite pastimes are yoga, long talks over morning coffee, a good book, writing and travel.
