I'm Kate.

I’m a Brisbane-based photographer and filmmaker. My great passions are women's portraiture, candid family photography, and creative fine art. I've photographed for the Australian Breastfeeding Project and I've had my images published in the Made Beautiful By Scars book series.

Making you feel happy and relaxed while you're being photographed is my first priority, whether on location or in my home studio. Delivering stunning, timeless images is one of my great joys.

I see beauty in everything, in everyone, and I love the opportunity to capture that beauty in a way that is honest, emotive, beautiful, fun and spontaneous.


Here are some kind things people have said about me and my art:

OMG!!!!!!!! KATE!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! Thank you so very much you gorgeous, talented woman!! My art piece is way beyond what I expected. I was thrilled with the photo you sent me but it's a whole other level on the canvas. Seriously...I'm all teary! Thrilled to bits!!

D. Burke, Pullenvale.

Thank you so much for today!! I wasn't sure about having a maternity shoot at all, but I am so so happy that I did one! You made me feel so beautiful so thank you so much!!!!

S. Vonharten, Bellbird Park.

Kate,  you have no idea how unbelievably happy those photos have made us. We are literally speechless!! Thank you so so so much from the bottom of our hearts. We are so lucky to know you!!!!

T. Scholes, Currumbin Waters.

I just have to thank you again for the photos of our wedding; you managed to capture the whole day. I have not stopped looking at them. Thank you, you did an amazing job!

V. Kennedy, Currumbin.

A huge thank you to the talented Kate Cornfoot for your beautiful photos. Your pictures are exceptional and make us swoon!

R. Scholes, Currumbin.

Kate Cornfoot is a brilliant photographer. Approachable, easy to work with, shoots beautifully with natural lighting, has the ability to capture lovely moments of people, children and animals (even when they're misbehaving). And she's efficient at getting final shots through. We would recommend Kate in a heartbeat.

J. Xing, Greenslopes.

Received the best present ever in the mail this afternoon!! Just went through your photos and they are amazing!!  I'm so happy, can't thank you enough, Kate!

T. Pike, Currumbin Waters

Kate was a pleasure to work with and so wonderful with the children which made the experience really relaxing. We are very happy with our photos and look forward to doing this again soon with Kate as it was a lovely experience.

K. Wilesmith, Paddington.

Kate has such a great eye and amazing ability with young kids. With just a few guiding words she was able to perfectly capture us as a family and even get a smile out of our 6-month old. I can't recommend her highly enough.

A. Tegg, Maleny.

We have been lucky enough to have Kate do pics for our little family on a few occasions and I love the way she captures the true essence of a moment. Natural cheekiness of the children and the looks in our eyes while we watch them! We have some beautiful photos of the final days of my pregnancy with baby number 2 and I only wish I knew how wonderful the birth was going to go and had the confidence to have had Kate photograph the whole experience... I highly recommend Kate as a gentle and kind photographer who will be more like a friend coming into your home to capture natural family or friendship moments.

S. Wilesmith, Taringa.
