Hi welcome to Forever Treasures Photography I’m Cat the founder (the only person that calls me Catherine has been my mum when she told me off as a teen!). Here’s a throwback pic of me and my 3 year old walking, talking inspiration Isla, whose pictures you will see pop up from time to time.
A bit more about me (I do have more interesting facts than the below..which I may tell you about if I meet you! Lol)
I LOVE chocolate and could eat Lindor all day everyday!
I’ve turned into a ‘mum that runs’ overnight and I completed my 1st half marathon a couple of years ago in just over 2 hours and raised over £650 for charity. Maybe London Marathon next!! (erm not quite sure about that! haha)
I’m really into mindset and motivational speakers/books, reiki etc. Reading Tony Robbins definitely gave me the confidence set up my business. I have a new found love for Gabby Bernstein too.
Little snippet of how I became a photographer
Before becoming a professional photographer I went to University twice and ended up with a Masters. I had a career for 10 years but my heart just wasn’t in the job and I constantly felt ‘burnt out’. During my maternity leave unforeseen events occurred that made me think ‘life is too short’ to be unhappy so I enrolled at Newborn Photography School. I am one of 60 people in the country to have qualified from this. I learnt all of the vital elements; the most important being how to pose babies in a safe way. I believe that training is essential when working with your precious little people.
I have also had the amazing opportunity of being trained in Dubai by one of the world’s leading Newborn and Maternity Photographers Ana Brandt and also Sujata Setia in natural light photography.
We have had lots of 5 star feedback from our clients; who have said that they have felt relaxed in our shoots and that I am extremely patient with their babies and children. (see my client review section). We are fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS check.
We love what we do and there is nothing better than a family being so thankful after they see the images. I feel honoured to have been able to capture so many beautiful moments that people are proud to display on their walls and share with their friends and family. Each of our photoshoots are unique and bespoke to cater to your individual taste. Our style is very friendly, relaxed, informal and fun. We offer variety of outfits and props that are free of charge.
We can’t wait to hear from you! 🙂
