Henry

This is my buddy Henry.

He loves to chase his cat.

And climb the stairs.

Henry loves to be swung.

And he LOVES chocolate cake.

I’ve gotten to spend the past year watching Henry grow and change.

He is a really lucky little guy.

He has a mommy and daddy who love him so very much.

And who love each other.

Henry I hope that I get  to continue to watch you as you grow up. You sure are a sweet little guy.
Thank you for letting me hang out and celebrate your first birthday!

Worried that a mini won’t be enough time? Here are a couple notes we have gotten from clients after their minis…

“They are so wonderful.  He was being such a stubborn boy and he has such a charm about it that you captured all of it.  I actually teared up!  I also wanted to get photos before he started losing his teeth and he lost his first tooth last Wednesday so the timing was perfect.  Thank you, Catherine.”

“AWWW! Love love love them! I can’t believe it only took 20 minutes and look at all those good ones! Thanks so much Catherine!”

Why I have the style of photography that I do…

I was eight years old and in the “invention convention” at my elementary school. I beamed with pride as my litter box deodorizer took first place. It really was a brilliant idea and something I still remember as being a very cool experience. Along with those big moments were the more ordinary ones – the pretend “stage” my best friend and I had set up on my canopy bed, clothespins holding the sheets from the frilly white cover of the bed, and a reading light that we used as a spot light while pretending to be in a Kit-Kat commercial. And there was the miniature lady bug house we built making sure not to leave out any details as we built and stocked the house (cardboard box) full of chairs, monkey bars and really tiny television sets made out of wood. I’ll never forget the “fix it shop” I credit as being my first business that my brother and I set up in my dad’s workshop, complete with the coolest carbon copy receipt notebook you have ever seen. And of course – there is “Dead End Field” (which, you guessed it, was in the field at the dead end of our street) that housed a baseball diamond brought to life by the older brothers in our neighborhood who spent a summer mowing, raking, and building “dugouts”.

I know what you are thinking – “Wow, Catherine. You were really cool as a child.” And then most likely your second thought “Why in the world are you writing to hundreds of busy people about your child memoirs?” Hang tight, we are quickly approaching my point.

While these are all vivid childhood memories of mine, we don’t have any actual photographs to accompany them. Now, I don’t fault our parents – it was different then. Most people didn’t take pictures of every day events like we do now. And I am lucky, I have the long term memory of an elephant (that’s a good thing, right?). It’s most likely why my kid’s are constantly having their picture taken while they are sleeping, riding in a shopping cart, selling toys off the front porch, trading baseball cards, reading – you name it, I probably have a picture of it. I want to capture every moment so they don’t forget about this care free, proud to be who you are, carpe diem, time in their life.  I know I can’t be there for every moment for my clients, however, this is why I am so passionate about capturing the moments I see around me, and what drives me to have the style of photography that I have. As a lot of you know, my style is casual, laid back, and it’s intent is to capture real memories for you to cherish. This is why I don’t have posed sets at my shoots to just stick your child in. This is why I don’t spend my time changing out the backgrounds and props, and why I do spend my time chatting, playing, running, chasing and laughing with you and your kids. My goal is not to create a setting to make your family or your kids fit into – but my goal at every shoot is to bring out the best in your family whether we are at your home, our studio, or outside. When you look back at your pictures I want you remember those moments, those personalities: your daughter’s infectious laugh, your son’s ornery smile, the chubby elbows on your baby, or the smirk and stance of your teenager. I want to get to know your family, I want to capture who you are, and I want to grab a slice of time that you can hold onto forever.

Thank you for your business over these past six years. Thank you for your trust. Thank you for your referrals. And thank you for letting me share in your memories.
