A Canadian Photographer

May Mini’s 27th-29th 
There are just a handful of sessions left during our April Muskoka Mini’s weekend, but the good news is I’ve opened up 3 days of sessions at my Cottage-Studio at the beach, North of Muskoka. May is a fantastic time, the sun is out (usually), the beach is open and the water is starting to warm up. This means we can shoot your session inside and out.

BONUS: I’m including $100 credit! It means a couple of extra files, a bunch of prints, a session upgrade, or a second makeup look…you choose!

Recently Facebook and Instagram started cracking down on nudie things – their mandate is clear and generally pretty reasonable but unfortunately for so many of us in the photography industry “boudoir” has become a bit of a target. I decided last month to change both of my boudoir related names. Welcome to the new KateHood.Empower. This actually makes a whole lot more sense, don’t you think? So cheers to making changes, making waves, supporting women, and generally just loving the shot out of ourselves.

Through July and August I’m offering boudoir sessions on location, that means in your home, cottage, studio, at your beach. My own cottage turns into a place where family congregates, enjoys the beer fridge, and BBQ’s everyday. You can find us on the boat or beach with friends every Monday and Tuesdays – when all my other self employed friends enjoy weekend time! So this means my beach is closed for business but open for parties. Are you hoping for a super spicy summer session? No problem, I’ll just come to you!

Bill is my brother. Chelsea is his gorgeous and brilliant partner. Photographing them is a really lovely thing I like to do whenever we can. They always say yes. They always do what I want – he’s such a good little brother.


My dear friend Wendy of Sacred Breath Yoga in Huntsville, Ontario is always willing to explore with me. One afternoon I messaged her to see if she’d be open to posing for me? That’s about all I could tell her. Just pose? Maybe with fabric, maybe nude? Maybe dance. We giggled the entire time. I just love her so much.

She is a beautiful human. Her energy is enchanting. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to join her, it’s on my bucket list – she hosts yoga and wellness retreats all over the world.

Thanks to my sweet Vanessa Monteith for hair and mu.
