Hi! I'm Kate Higgins.
Mum of two (Jess & Lucas)
Hiker (slowly ticking all of the local trails off my list).
Music lover (how many live shows can a girl see in one year?)
And of course ... a professional photographer! I am an accredited member of the AIPP - Australian Institute of Professional Photographers - and have been photographing portraits and events for over six years! Babies, families, maternity clients, children, products, you name it.
I've got to admit it ... I do love photographing weddings! In fact, I've spent much of my life working in the weddings industry, with my family owning and running a busy reception venue in the Scenic Rim for over 10 years! Born and raised in South East Queensland, I just love photographing in our beautiful area! From the rainforests of Tamborine Mountain where I spent my childhood, to the beaches of the Gold Coast, the city lights of Brisbane where I currently live and beyond!
Product and business branding photography is also a passion of mine! I've been photographing products for various businesses for over 5 years and love producing content for social media, websites and print materials.
I can't wait to meet all of the fabulous clients that we'll be photographing this year but there's more than just one pretty face in this operation ...
So may I introduce to you, my wonderful friend and super talented photographer, Carol Souza ...
Hello I’m Carol Souza!
I am originally from Brazil and left my home country ten years ago, setting up home now in beautiful Brisbane. I was lucky enough to spend most of my twenties travelling around the world and have now spent the last four years running my own photography business here in gorgeous South East Queensland.
I adore newborn and children’s photography (it’s how I get my daily fix of that gorgeous baby smell) but there is something just a little bit magical about wedding photography isn’t there! I have always loved weddings! When I left university I worked for many years as a wedding planner before moving into photography. I had the privilege of working with amazing wedding photographers in Brazil, Auckland, Perth and now here in Brisbane.
I love anything nature and animal related. If they are both at the same time, well that’s even better as I can bring my dog Larry along! Life so far has been an amazing adventure and I can’t wait to see where our wedding photography business will take us this year! When I’m not working with Kate on her amazing business ideas, I am busy photographing babies and families from my Carina Heights studio. It’s so special when my wedding clients return to me in the following years for other portraits as their family evolves so be sure to pop me an email when the time comes.
But for now, let’s get the (wedding) party started! Hope to see you soon!
(You would think that two professional photographers would have a photo of themselves on their ABOUT US page wouldn't you?! It's coming soon we promise!!)
