I love to share with you emails and comments that I have received from happy models and parents. As well as taking gorgeous photos I love that I can make the whole experience fun and light hearted.
Good morning Cathy, thank you for taking time out from your family to shoot with Ella on Sunday. What a beautiful surprise to wake this morning and see your gorgeous photos of her but even more the beautiful words you wrote about her. What an amazing mentor you are to these young, up and coming models.
You put her at ease straight away and it shows in the photos. Thank you for the confidence you have in her she really respects and admires your work so your kind uplifting words mean so much to her. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your stunning work Have a great day X Jane Carroll
Hi Cathy. Tiffens Mum (Lyn) here. I would just like to say thank you so much for yesterday's shoot. You put Tiffen at ease straight away and she said she felt so comfortable with you and had a lot of fun.
Looking forward to seeing the results. Thank you again for making her first shoot such an enjoyable one.
Cathy Smith and myself have shot twice together, both times equally amazing! She is so relaxed, supportive and just so much fun to shoot with! Her images are now used on my international modeling profiles in London, Hong Kong and Australia. I can not wait to come back and shoot again! One of my favorites in Brisbane.

I have done two shoots with Cathy and not only did I get photos of amazing, unique quality, I made a close friend and trusted advisor of whom I can ask anything, have fun with and feel comfortable shooting with at anytime.
When shooting with Cathy she has a mother-hen attitude that makes you feel at home and welcome to be yourself while she shoots. She always offers assistance and pointers while also letting you as a model to be creative and try yourself out. I recommend her highly as a photographer and as a friend.
I felt really comfortable and relaxed while I was shooting with Cathy. She made sure I felt comfortable with what we were doing.
The shoot's vibe was fun and layed back which is what I prefer when doing a shoot.
Overall it was a great shoot and I can't wait until we can have another one together! Xx
I have just spent an afternoon with the very capable and talented photographer, Cathy Smith. The plan was to get a few shots of an inexperienced development model, in my daughter. Together with stylist and makeup artist Tyneale Hahn, Cathy made her subject feel completely at ease and in doing so achieved very professional results. Cathy prefers to work in the outdoors and the gorgeous winter sky did not disappoint. The makeup, hair and natural elements made for a very organic shoot. Cathy got the best out of the young model, and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. Her easy going nature and ability to look at things a little differently result in exceptional images.

I had the pleasure to shoot with Cathy for a test shoot. She directed me and made me feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. Through her nice and easy-going personality, I was able to pose confidently.
I received the edited photos within a few days and they were stunning! I can't wait to work with her again in the future. I highly recommend her to anyone from first timers to professionals. Thanks once again Cathy, you are awesome!
