capturing what makes
your family yours 

My goal in family sessions is to capture images that showcase the personalities of every family member. You will be able to not only look back at your perfect family portrait, but also photos of your littles playing and being themselves, and remember exactly how they were at that time in your life! My style of photography is a blend of portrait and lifestyle, so I will be there to capture some fun & authentic moments with your family interacting, while giving guidance and helping with prompts & posing along the way. Family sessions begin at $425.00 and include prints, the use of my client closet and a preparation guide. Please contact me for more information on pricing.

and have

It will be unconventional and fun! There will be calm tender moments, and minimal sitting still and smiling for the camera. As a Mom of two little boys, I know that it's alot to ask of small children to sit, stay still and smile for the camera. We will get your wall-worthy family portraits right off the bat and after that you will just focus on your children while I capture everyone interacting and having fun. I have a knack for giving prompts that allow for some sweet snuggles and genuine smiles, and by the end of your session your children will have burnt some energy and will feel like they have been on a fun adventure. You will leave feeling like you've spent some quality time with the people you love the most and you will have the beautiful memories of your family exactly as they are at this time in your life.

"Caitlin was so lovely to work with. She was quick and thorough replying to emails with all of my questions leading up to our session. During our session she was so professional, while also very laid back and she truly went with the flow of our family during our session. She was so patient and amazing with our wild toddler, and she was able to capture so many amazing shots of her, even when she was running wild, rolling on the ground and doing what toddlers do. We received our gallery in less than 2 weeks after our session and we are absolutely in love with the photos that Caitlin was able to capture of our little family."

"Caitlin is absolutely amazing! We changed our minds numerous times leading up to the session switching between studio and home and Caitlin was so easy going. She completely understood and flowed with what worked for us. During the session she was great with our crazy household, toddler not wanting to sit still and puppy all over the place. Looking at our photos you would never know the craziness behind the scenes. She makes you feel comfortable and made photos stress free for this mom! Her work speaks to itself, it's absolutely beautiful! I wish I knew her when I had my first two."
