"My mom passed away the day before my session that I had booked with Cate months ago. I decided to keep my session as my mom always wanted me to do a boudoir. I brought my bestie/hype woman, got my hair and makeup done, and spent 3 hours feeling amazing about myself. I've always had a lot of body confidence even before losing 120 lbs, but this day took it to new levels. This was a gift to me for the weight loss, a gift to hubby, and to honor my mamma. Cate and her glam squad made me feel so comfortable. I felt like a total badass and I know my mamma was looking down so proud of me for embracing my body for all it's done for me."

"Every woman must do a boudoir in their lifetime as it is a life-changing moment."

"When Cate asked me if I’d be interested in doing a boudoir shoot with her I was nervous. Immediate thoughts were I just turned 40, should I be doing this? Then I thought... What would I say to my daughter if she had the opportunity to do something like this? I would tell her to go for it! Quiet those little voices and go for it! Push out of your comfort zone & do something for yourself!! 

My comfort level went up like crazy after seeing my hair and makeup! My lips were still shaking when I smiled in the first couple of photos, but she cranked up the tunes and made me laugh and soon we were having a blast. I left feeling really good about having a surprise for my husband, telling my daughter that I did it, and most importantly about myself! I truly believe every woman should do this for themselves!!

"Cate sent me inspo ideas and I felt better knowing that we could create a session that felt like me."

 "I have to say, I love these more than I thought I would because you can see my birthmark, on my left buttcheek, but I LOVE that!! I love that no matter what, this is the real me, and I feel GORGEOUS and light-bearing in these!

You have no idea how much I needed this session. Just to remind me that I am capable, beautiful, womanly, not just a mom and a teacher and a ball of stress. I’m truly in tears, I feel like Cate saw the me that I want others to see, that I try to portray. She captured that, and that is one of the many reasons why I truly admire her."

"Cate is amazing she is so talented and her work is gorgeous. This is the second set of photos she has done for me! I highly recommend Cate she makes you feel like you have known her forever so when you are working with her it’s easy. Trust me you will love her as soon as you meet her."
