Focused on the real moments and capturing memories.

I'm CATHERINe

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU,

Fueled by equal parts coffee and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. 

ALL ABOUT CATHERINE

Every family portrait session is unique. I work with each and every family to plan fun, creative sessions that fit your personal style. I help you decide on the perfect location for your family session. If you have young children, I bust out a few secrets to get your kiddos comfortable, smiling, and having fun. If you have any other special requests or fun ideas, I would love to hear all about them. Don't forget your fur-babies either! Pets are always welcome to join any family portrait session.

These sessions start at $300 - you can find all of the pricing information on the Portrait Investment Guide.

FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Newborn Sessions and sessions within the First Year of your baby's life are just oh-so special. Time truly does fly in those first few months, so choosing to document those tiny details will preserve those moments for many years to come. I offer two types of Newborn Photography Sessions - Posed Newborn Sessions (think the adorable little wrapped images) in my Point Breeze photography studio, or Lifestyle Newborn Sessions captured in your home. 

Newborn sessions should be photographed within the first 14 days of your child's life. My couples typically plan and book these sessions around the 20th week of their pregnancies.

Once your baby is a little older, I can capture other milestones like Sitter Sessions (yay! your baby can sit - cue the adorable baby giggles) and First Year Photos (cake smash sessions, or just adorable themed sessions marking your baby's first birthday.)

These sessions start at $400 - you can find all of the pricing information on the Portrait Investment Guide.

NEWBORN SESSIONS & FIRST YEAR SESSIONS

Maternity Sessions were born from past wedding couples asking us to document their growing families and now we just can't get enough! Capturing the journey of motherhood and parenthood with a photo session during your pregnancy is a special way to celebrate that next journey in life. Located in the Monroeville/Plum, Pennsylvania area, we can photograph your session locally, or I'm willing to travel to wherever is special to you. My studio in Point Breeze (on the East End of Pittsburgh) also makes for a perfect, weather-resistant location for your maternity session.

Pregnancy Announcement Sessions are usually photographed around 20 weeks and Maternity Sessions are photographed around 30-32 weeks. Check out the Portraits section of my website for photography galleries and more information about these momentous sessions. Maternity Sessions begin at $300 - you can find all of the pricing information on the Portrait Investment Guide.

MATERNITY SESSIONS

My wedding photography style is timeless and classic, yet colorful. Being classically trained as a commercial photographer, true-to-life color and tone is what makes my photographs truly ageless in style. I like to the find the perfect balance between posed and candid portraits in a way that is comfortable and fun - no matter how camera-shy you say you are! :) 

I focus on moments - Those real moments when the couple sees one another for the first time, that moment when the father of the bride sees his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress - or when the mother of the groom sheds a tear during the ceremony. All of those moments, and so many more are what create these beautiful photographs that you will cherish for years to come.

Every wedding day is unique, and as your wedding photographer, I offer a variety of wedding packages to suite your style, needs, and budget. From Engagement Sessions, intimate weddings and elopements to ballroom celebrations and late-night fireworks, I'm available to capture your wedding exactly as you intend. You can check out some incredible wedding photographs and more details on the Weddings page. To learn more about the services and packages, please check out my Wedding Investment Guide
