I specialize in showing you the person everyone loves, the beauty that shines from you. Let me show you how amazing you really are with contemporary portraits that you and your family will treasure for generations.
Cath has spent many years behind the camera as a hobbiest and film enthusiast. She learned her technical expertise on antique cameras, developing and printing her photos in a makeshift darkroom in her kitchen.
Now equally adept in the digital world, Cath turned her hobby into a business in late 2016 and specializes in contemporary portrait photography.
Born in England, Cath now lives in North East Ohio with her husband and a plethora of cats.
Art is a collaboration between the artist and the subject, so before we even book your session, we start with a phone call. During the call, we'll discuss your needs and expectations. It's a chance for you to ask questions and find out if Cath Smith Photography is the right studio for you.
Once you decide to go ahead, we'll start planning the session. Depending on the session you want, we'll either meet in the studio to review products and possibilities or work online, reviewing ideas on a mood board. We'll also discuss the pricing and process and address any questions you have.
All clients have the option of a styling session, free of charge, to plan their wardrobe for the photo session. We can work over text or in person to pick out a wardrobe that will help you look (and feel) incredible.
Clients booking a beauty session will have access to a hair and makeup artist in the studio immediately before the session. All in-studio clients have access to a spacious changing room and make-up area to check and touch up your look before and during the session.
During the session, I'll provide guidance throughout on posing and how to be in front of the camera. I aim to help you feel relaxed and have fun!
About 2 weeks after the photo shoot, you'll come back into the studio to review the proofs from your session so you can select and purchase your favorites.
