See, I'm a firm believer that documenting your growing family is an absolute must. With two toddlers myself, I know how much I appreciate photos of our family together because they are few and far between. 

Motherhood is beautiful and it changes your world from the moment you feel those first kicks and hold your sweet baby in your arms. Little did I know that not only would motherhood change my world, but it would also lead me to quit my fast-paced corporate job to trade excel sheets for my camera. (I suppose that Master's Degree in Political Management was just for fun... oops!)

Today my life looks much different than I ever imagined but it's also so much more fulfilling. 

I have the immense responsibility of documenting love-filled homes like yours, I'm sporting leggings instead of pencil skirts, and wrangling two little boys who have my entire heart yet also justify a nice glass of red wine every now and then because... witching hour. 

I would be so honored to tell your story and to document effortless, natural photos of your life that you will treasure today and in all of the years to come.

hello, I'm Cait

A little over four years ago I was a first time mama with a plan to document our son's days with something other than my phone. 

"where you invest your love, you invest your life"

the heart behind

Let's slow down enough to document the season you're in right now. 

Your little ones won't always cuddle into your shoulder or let your brush their hair to the side. A photo can help you relive those moments.

Just the other day I was sitting on the couch with my boys sifting through our family albums and it turned into one of the most meaningful moments.

They loved guessing whose newborn photos were whose (I swear they were newborn clones!), hearing about the moment when my oldest met his little brother in the hospital, seeing images from our recent family vacation and all of the little milestones from these short 5 years.

When I look through our albums, my favorites aren't always when they are smiling at the camera- but its when they are exploring, laughing, and the unprompted hug that sometimes looks more like a brotherly choke-hold.

That's why I'm drawn to lifestyle photography for my clients too. Those in-between moments are gold.

all about your session

I've crafted an experience that will be easy & effortless while being customized just for you.

An experience with absolutely no stress about what to wear because my Client Wardrobe and styling assistance will take care of that for you.

And if you choose, I'll even set up a hair and makeup appointment for some pre-session pampering. 

During your session I'll guide you into beautiful photographic moments surrounded by our lovely Charleston scenery, tell you what to do with your hands, and ensure you look your best while making memories with your children. 

Following your session, I offer modern gallery wall design and custom-designed heirloom albums to ensure your family's photos are preserved in a way that can be passed down through generations. 


you're juggling nap schedules, work, and everything else in between leaving little time for yourself - let alone planning a photo session.
