Or not. My name is Kaat. But I guess there's a reason why Nintendo didn't pick my name for world's most famous carpenter. In English my name pronounced as 'cat' (meow), but with an extra long a. My parents didn't really think that one through, did they?

"If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera. ”
- LEWIS HINE
Since graduating from the 'Narafi' School of Arts in 2014, I've been trying to find a way to merge my passion for the great outdoors with my career as a dedicated photographer. I quickly realized that those two things didn't have to exist independently, so for the past couple of years I've been wandering from New-Zealand to Cuba and from Chile all the way to Sri Lanka to create unique stories that capture a personal journey - including laughs and tears, friends and family, and moments most people didn't realize were happening.
The Girl Behind The Camera
Currently, I'm working as a full-time photographer shooting all kinds of events, going from weddings and family sessions to product launches and shop openings. I pinch myself on a daily basis because I honestly feel very lucky to get to meet, work and become friends with so many amazing people whilst creating visual stories and calling it work. I mean, seriously... I'm not quite sure how I got so stinking lucky, but I am extremely thankful to get these opportunities.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL PREVIEW I TOTALLY GET THAT YOU'RE NOT ABLE TO PICK YOUR FAVORITES I'M FALLING IN LOVE WITH MYSELF!!!
