Catherine Anne Hayes is a plus sized actress that I photographed a few weeks ago in North Hollywood, CA. She was the token fat lady in dozens of commercials and print ads dating back to 1976. She’s currently wheelchair bound but undergoing lots of physical therapy and trying to get back into the industry.

Here’s my favorite image from the session with Cathie and some outtakes below.

Here’s some fun tear sheets Cathie sent me of old ads that she was featured in and a link to her Youtube Reel!
