about me!

I am Catherine… a mother, a wife, a devout friend, a lover of life & people, a loyal advocate of good works, a light seeker, a sun searcher, a film-loving book nerd, a road-trippin’ fool, and a dog lover.  I have worked as a photographer for the past 19 years from Seattle to New York and almost everywhere in between, and have been a bona-fide business owner for the last 9 years.  I am a lone photographer, but I work closely with my husband Michael, who is my partner in every way possible and the design genius & level-headed support behind everything I do… and I often shoot alongside our daughter Madeline, who is a photographer in training and can meter a film shot like nobody’s business.

Together we are CALIMA.  weddings… portraits… lifelong memories.
