...and that sessions could be SO fun that both kids AND Dads (gasp!) loved them! Well guess what, you're in the right place.
Get ready for REAL smiles, belly laughs and photos so magical you’ll swear I was a wizard.
You’ve got your hands full with crazy schedules, diaper changes out the wazoo, daycare bugs, sleep deprivation…the list goes on and on, right? But I ALSO know that if you’re here, you’re *obsessed* with your sweet little crew and that time is slipping away faster than you’d like.
While I wish I could wave a magic wand and freeze time for you like an ACTUAL wizard, unfortunately, I have yet to develop that skill but I CAN do the next best thing: help you capture this season of life in a joyful, fun and authentic way.
"We came across Mary Catherine while searching for a maternity photographer. We had called and reviewed a dozen of them and after looking through her portfolio and inquiring with MC, we knew she was the one! My husband and I both thought working with her was one of the best part of our pregnancy and experience as new parents. We ended up booking both the maternity and newborn sessions right from the get go!"
Working with her was one of the best parts of our pregnancy and experience as new parents.
"What makes working with Mary Catherine unique is her infectious joy and genuine enthusiasm; we didn't know what to expect from our 15 month old during our spring mini session, but photo after photo Mary Catherine captured the humor and sweetness of this stage. We look forward to having Mary Catherine chronicle our family for years to come!"
Photo after photo, Mary Catherine captured the humor and sweetness of being a one-year-old.
"Mary Catherine recently photographed our newborn - she was absolutely wonderful to work with and we are thrilled with how beautiful the photos turned out! MC made the whole process easy and fun from start to finish. She put us completely at ease and knew exactly how to use the room, lighting, and timing to take gorgeous shots of a very fussy baby and a very tired mom and dad. It was like having an exceptionally talented friend over to take pictures. We can't wait to work with her again!"

"From the moment Mary Catherine walked into our house and bonded with our wiggly 2.5 year old, I knew she was going to be the perfect photographer for our family! She was patient with our kids and super efficient at getting adorable pictures in the few moments they were cooperating ;) I don’t normally love pictures of myself either and I found myself amazed at what she captured - I don’t know how we will be able to pick through which ones to print because we love them all so much!"

"Mary Catherine went above and beyond to make sure our newborn shoot was a success under very difficult circumstances. She was very patient with our very fussy newborn -- even used some of her own soothing tricks which my husband still replicates when trying to calm our baby!"
