I know there are many photographers you could choose from, and I am truly honored you're considering me.

I serve Mamas who know they want timeless photos of their family, but want the experience to be stress-free.  Simply show up to the studio, and I'll take care of wardrobe, styling, and curating your images into products your family will love for years. 

You have a lot on your plate - let me make your life easier.  I'll save you time, make sure you are looking your best, and give you a relaxing experience that will almost make you forget how sleep-deprived you are!

The Portrait Experience begins right here – with communication and connection! It's important that I connect with you to ensure we're a great fit to work together, chat about the vision for your Portrait Experience, and more!

step 01: connect and chat

After your session is confirmed, we will set up your Wardrobe & Styling appointment.  We'll style the entire family from my curated collection of women's, men's, and children's clothing so you can focus on your family and not on your wardrobe. 

step 02: wardrobe & styling

Your session will be centered all around you and your loved ones. With all of the planning and preparing we will do before your session, you will start your session with confidence and end it with fun!  Our hair and makeup team will arrive at your home to get you photo ready.  

step 03: your Session

Once I have hand-edited your photos, we will get together for your Design & Ordering appointment.  I'll show you the images we created and we will decide how you'd like to enjoy these for years to come!

step 04: Design & Ordering

Photos weren't meant to be stored on your device. They should be admired in your home and bring warmth into your life. About 6-8 weeks after your ordering appointment, your frames and albums will be ready for their forever home.  I provide installation on frame purchases to make displaying them in your home one less thing to worry about.

step 05: delivery and install

MEET newborn photographer in mckinney, catie

I celebrate every woman's beauty whether that's during a maternity session, boudoir session, or family portraits.  I have a deep desire to support new moms because I vividly remember how overwhelming it was during those first few months. 

My goal is to make your life easier.  I provide a full-service experience to pamper you the entire way, and ensure that the images we create will bring joy to your home.

I have a passion for making women feel beautiful, even when it seems like there's an alien growing inside you or there's spit-up on your sweatpants.

I like to say I photograph booties and babies, but it's really so much more than that...

HEY, I'M catie!
