Who I Am

I’m Haley Cate, a photographer from Portage with a big heart for my hometown (and also ice cream). I love being in nature, making music, and searching for magic in the everyday. Nothing means more to me than my family and friends—they’re kinda the greatest people in the world. I’m a goofball, a nerd, and an avid hugger. And if you have a dog, we’ll definitely be friends!

What I Do

I capture moments of people’s stories—bursts of personality, slices of joy, and moments of love. When I’m not taking senior portraits or shooting family sessions, I like to play with different lighting effects, take pictures of puppies, and create my own digital magic on Instagram. Photography is my creative outlet and keepsake maker. Let’s preserve some memories, shall we?
