Heartfelt imagery capturing love, connection, and the fleeting moments in between



let's do it!

Hi, welcome!  So glad you're here.  I'm Caitlin. My good friends call me Cait, and one very special little girl calls me Mama. I am a family, newborn, and lifestyle photographer based out of Portland, OR- my hometown and my very favorite city. I'm a photographer's daughter, and though I have always had a love and appreciation for the craft, it wasn't until my own daughter was born that I felt inspired to get behind the lens. I felt an overwhelming desire to bottle up every moment with her, and quickly learned that I could do that in a creative and artistic way. I'd love to help tell your story, too! Want to learn more?

There is truly no better compliment than to have clients return time after time.  I thought it would be fun to combine a few highlights from this family’s maternity, newborn, and family session in one post to show the progression.  Hard to believe the maternity session was just over a year ago! I love watching […]


This session makes my PNW photographer heart happy.  I love the moody fog that is so indicative of the Oregon Coast, and the subjects couldn’t be cuter.  It was a little cold and a little dicey walking out onto the rocks, but well worth it! Baby Jude was a trooper through it all, and was […]

I wish I could give Caitlin 6 stars, she is amazing! We found her to be so personable, professional and easy to work with. Photographing toddlers isn’t an easy task, but Caitlin has it down. She has consistently produced beautiful photos for our family and I can’t recommend her enough!

We are not the "family photo" kind of family typically. Husband and I are mildly awkward in such situations and it's hard to find the time! But we really wanted pictures as a family before our second baby comes. Caitlin made it so easy - quick, pain-free, affordable, not awkward and fun for our toddler! The pictures could not have turned out better, and we're so happy we did it. Cannot wait to get more photos once the new baby has arrived!

Our family absolutely shines in the photos we received! Caitlin did a great job working with our 3 year old who had her own agenda during the photo shoot. Caitlin cared about what we wanted and worked hard to capture our more candid moments. I am looking forward to using her services again in the future!

Caitlin is simply the best. She was super quick in response while booking our session. She was warm and friendly during the session and was AMAZING with my 2.5 year old. I have no idea how she got so many great pictures! She sent a sneak peek right away which I loved. I can't wait to book our next session!

Caitlin truly has an abundance of raw talent and her style is richly emotive and beautifully timeless. She was so easy to work with and made us feel relaxed and comfortable the entire time, with really great suggestions for posing while still letting us be ourselves and capturing real moments. We were beyond thrilled with each and every single image from our shoot.

Caitlin did an amazing job with our 3 year old daughter for her fall pictures. Our kiddo is a skosh on the shy side and Caitlin was able to get her to loosen up and show her silly side! Our photos turned out wonderful, we couldn’t be happier!

We cannot even begin to explain how wonderful Caitlin was! Her talent is beyond words; she put up with a crazy uphill hike, wind and a minor 1 year old meltdown at the end. She’s the best!!

Caitlin has now taken our family pictures two times and I absolutely love all of them. We always get so many compliments. She was able to capture who we are as a family as well as show each person’s unique personality in an authentic and complementary way.
