The Experience


"Catherine was a joy to work with"

Catherine was a joy to work with for a maternity session as well as for a newborn photo shoot. We took all of her suggestions regarding the time and location of the photo shoot, as well as styling - the photos turned out to be some of my favorites ever taken! Catherine was extremely patient and kind. She was wonderful with my 4 year old daughter as well. She took the time to get to know my family before the photo shoot by sending a questionnaire, and took my responses to heart. She was professional through and through, and was extremely responsive and prompt anytime I e-mailed/asked a question/when sharing edited photos. Photos were easy to review and purchase. I highly recommend Catherine, and will be a repeat customer!



"We will be lifelong customers!"

We cannot say enough good things about Catherine. She has done our engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn and recently just finished up our daughters first birthday/Christmas shoot. She is caring, reliable, easy to work with, and most importantly her work is phenomenal. We will be lifelong customers!



"We had a fantastic time today."

We had a fantastic time today. She was very go-with-the-flow even with an uncooperative toddler. Definitely will be coming back for all of our photo needs!



No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date. 

what do we do if it rains or if it looks like it might rain?

The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  

To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

How far in advance should I book a portrait session?

If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck. 

We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!)

What should we wear? 

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera. 

You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones. 

We're awkard in photos and my kids never sit still.  

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to select your favorites from your session and download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format. 

How will I receive my photos? Can I order prints?
