Catherine Bishop is a Puyallup, WA based professional Newborn Photographer that was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest Region of Washington. Catherine studied photography in high school and College, but after a near devastating car accident occurred in her early 20’s, she decided to ultimately follow a path into working in the Emergency Services.
An unexpected journey off her planned path that led her back to her calling.
During her time in the Emergency Services, Catherine worked on the ambulance and in the Emergency Room. She was always particularly drawn to the babies that passed through her medical care, more than anything else. With a mission to better each life she helped, Catherine always pushed to go beyond the extra mile when a newborn was ever in her care. She continued this mentality when she traveled abroad to South Africa and worked with young children and infants to better their lives through a non profit organization in 2010.
Shortly after, Catherine settled down to have a family of her own with her husband and they had “Irish twin” boys. Not long after, she quickly picked back up her long time hobby of newborn photography-catching every newborn and baby memory along the way with her camera by her side.
Over the years, her adoration for newborn and child photography blossomed even more, and her business began.
Catherine naturally paired her love for newborn babies together with her love for photography and a match was made. She then decided to start a business doing what she loved most. And with her continued education in newborn and child CPR complimenting this, together with her Newborn Photography Business, Catherine Bishop Photography was born.
In 2018, Catherine took her business one step further by partnering with a local organization to bring Puyallup and Tacoma Mother’s in need free photo shoots for their newborn babies.
Today this program is growing to also include communities in Orting, Kent and Auburn, Wa as well.
Today, when Catherine is not in the middle of one of her adored newborn photo shoots, she can be found exploring the Pacific Northwest outdoors with her two busy toddlers, or likely working on a hand made creation for her next newborn photography prop.
Catherine is honored to be recognized for her commitment in purchasing strictly local, organically created and traced products.
With exclusivity to the local communities of Puyallup and Tacoma WA, her business is able to help support small local business owners right here in the Pacific Northwest. This mission is growing larger every day because it matters.
Catherine is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, and the ASP (American Society of Photographers) and The Newborn Photographers.
