let's do this

ready to talk? awesome.

Over-flowing cereal bowls
in the morning when they try
to pour their own milk. 

Swing set pushes in the backyard. 

A kiss on an owie that makes
it all better.

Quiet time snuggles with the book you’ve read 1,000 times. 


You deserve it,
     and we can capture it.

Hey there! Did a pang of guilt hit you out of nowhere today? When the pain started - were you thinking of how long it’s been since your family was in front of a camera that wasn’t also a phone? 

I would like to hand you a virtual cup of iced coffee and give you a hug. You’re in the right place.

I’m Cat! I’m a wife, Mom of four, and documentary family photographer. I love staying up too late watching HGTV or shows about murder, there’s no in-between. I can usually be found stalking my kids with my camera. 10/10 will cry at every milestone.

I have a passion for photographing what is unique and important about your family right now.

In-Home + Outdoor Sessions
for the Modern Family

Documentary
Family.

WHAT IS A DOCUMENTARY FAMILY SESSION LIKE? 

THE DAY OF YOUR SESSION, I'll show up bright-eyed, bushy tailed, and caffeinated! I’ll spend a few minutes just talking to your kiddos without a big camera in front of my face. If we’re doing an in-home session they can show me around their turf. Don’t worry, I won’t judge those laundry or toy piles. You do remember I have four kids, right?

YOUR JOB WILL BE TO INTERACT WITH YOUR FAMILY. I mean, hey, you do that on the daily! My job will be to find those moments of connection, and get them documented with the care they deserve. 

YES, YOU WILL BE IN THESE PHOTOS. This is not a Loch Ness Monster situation, where that one blurry photo of you will be your legacy. You know, the one your other-half snapped with the iPhone when you were mid-sentence. 

Not today, Satan.
We can do so much better.


NOT TO BRAG BUT, I'VE MADE LOTS OF CLIENTS CRY, OK? As a parent, when you finally have tangible proof of the little features and mannerisms of your kiddos, it’s a powerful thing.
I know you deeply appreciate those details about your family, and when you see that captured - cue the happy tears. Sound good?

FAMILY DOCUMENTARY SESSIONS START AT $350, 
MOST FAMILIES INVEST $550+.

Don't tell me time flies. I already know.

Photos of the parts of parenting that go unnoticed by others, but mean everything to you.
