ABOUT CATHY

My name is Cathy Cooper.

I am a devoted Christ follower, and a firm believer that everything I am is with the help from our Lord and Savior. I am a wife and mother of two beautiful children, ages 6 and 3.  

My photography journey started when I was young.  I always wanted to take pictures and be in pictures.  It didn't matter what the subject was, I just wanted to photograph it.  When I graduated college, I kept my love for photography as just a hobby.  I began a career as a paralegal where I remained for 12 years.  In 2015, my wonderful husband gave me the gift of my first DSLR camera.  That is where my story began.  I started practicing by just taking pictures of my children and family.  But my heart desired more.  I wanted to learn more and be more.  God put the fire in my heart, and I just kept growing.  

You will see that I enjoy photographing maternity, newborn, children, family and senior type sessions.  I love each type differently, but  my passion is in maternity photography.  I am inspired by the emotion I feel from an expecting mom (and dad) and the joy they bring to the session.  I want my photography to exude that emotion from each image. 

Apart from photography I like to play puzzles with my children, go on boat rides with my family, and volunteer in my church Sunday school.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about me.  I would love to talk to you about the type of session you are envisioning.  Feel free to contact me at 352-229-6650 or via email at alluringgracephotography@gmail.com about booking your session.  I look forward to hearing from you.
