If you are looking for a fun, fresh and modern portrait experience with a personal approach, stunning images and a variety of product offerings, contact me today to schedule your in-person consultation so we can get started designing your session.

I look forward to creating something with you!!!

Cathleen’s portraiture work is delightful. The use of light, depth of field, and background coloration in the framing bring out the subject in a way that is vivid and present to the moment. Best of all, there is a very spontaneous, natural quality to her photographs that enables her to capture her subjects in settings that are joyful and relaxed. – Sonia Balcer
