I was born in Germany and raised in West Cork.
Cows were my neighbours and Fairies my friends.
I studied Fine Art in Cork City.
I am a crisp monster
I'm obsessed with beautiful natural light.
I have a cat named Kitty and she is just like me.
I am living in the countryside together with my lovely man Fintan ( who is also an awesome musician and creates the most magic of soundscapes for all my behind the scenes videos)
I'm here for the wild ones, the free spirits, and the untamable souls; the ones with bare feet, messy hair and big hearts. If that sounds like you, I would love to connect!
"She manages to portray our emotions, our love, our connection in each image in such an extraordinary way. Kate is naturally talented, kind and humble. It has been our absolute pleasure to include her in the biggest moments of our lives. We now await the birth of our first baby and I already have this amazing photographer booked for photographing baby’s first big moments. I would recommend Kate again and again. She is magic!"
"We were looking for a ninja photographer who would take beautiful candid photos of us and our guests and you did exactly that. Our guests have been commenting on how they thought you were a guest due to your discrete, cheery and positive manner. You knew where to be to capture beautiful moments throughout the day and your attention to detail was impeccable. The photos are like a story of the day, they show our emotions, our feelings for each other and the joy of all our guests. "
"I honestly don't think we stopped laughing the whole time and she just made everything seem so normal and relaxed. She took things to another level, even distracting Elmo with popcorn to get the perfect shot.
I was so excited to see the photos and Kate had them ready so much quicker than I could have ever dreamed! I highly recommend Kate Bean Photography to anyone that would like a fun, relaxed and hugely talented photographer to capture their special moments."
