I simply adore my clients. I'm blessed to photograph each and every one of them. Recently I was contacted by Karilyn, owner of For Better or Best, who designs customized wedding stationary. She was in need of some photos for her business' updated website as well as photos with her husband and two puppies. The more Karilyn and I emailed about the vision for her session, the more excited I became to make her vision come to life.
Sophie is one of my lovely students at Feijoo Ballet School. After her mom saw my photography work for Black Box on Broadway this past Fall she approached me about taking portraits of sweet Sophie. The photos would be used for their annual Christmas card as well as in promotion for their family business, Gay Family Auto in Dickinson. Photograph an adorable child AND have my photos on a billboard? Sounds great to me!
For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him.

Maggie is one of my dearest friends from childhood. Every since we were little girls she's always professed her deep love of motherhood and how much she couldn't wait to become a mom. This dream was partially realized when she and her husband, Zach, became pet parents to sweet Sophie. Well I'm happy to announce that Maggie's dream of motherhood will be coming into fruition this July as she and Zach welcome in their child into the world! So excited to see them become parents (and for Sophie to become a big sister!)
I love New York. And couples in love. And sunsets. And goldendoodles! Combine all of these things for a Portrait Session and I'm one happy girl!!
I met Emma and Kacy through my church here in Jersey and they are such cute couple! Though I was sad to see them move to Utah I was overjoyed to photograph them with NYC as their backdrop before they left town. So if you’ve spent anytime with me (especially recently) you’ll know that I’m 100% obsessed with goldendoodles (golden retriever + poodle mix) and want one desperately! I told Emma jokingly that I would ONLY do their session if they brought their doodle, Yogi, along. When they showed up with Yogi in a bow tie, my heart about stopped! Emma and Kacy are a beautiful couple but its easy to see that Yogi steals the show- just look at that face! We even had a couple tourists (who didn’t speak any English) stop us and wanted to take photos with Yogi!!
At the end of their session I showed one little photo to Emma as a sneak peak to which she said, “Oh Caitlin, this is exactly what I was wanting!” Hearing that was music to this photographer’s ears! I’m always honored to photograph special moments in time for my clients and work hard to marry their idea’s with my vision. Emma, Kacy, and Yogi will be truly missed here in Jersey but hopefully our paths will cross again someday. I love that these photos will always remind them of the wonderful pocket of time they spent living along Hudson.
Whenever I have a client whom I don't know, I'm always a bit anxious to meet and get to know them. Russell was referred to me by some mutual friends for his Senior Portrait Session and from the moment I met him, I knew I was in for a great shoot!! He was easy going, completely natural in front of the camera, and so nice. He even brought along his adorable dog, T-Bone, for a few photos.
It is always such a privilege to capture such a special time in someone's life, especially High School Seniors. They are so full of happiness and ambition. It's inspiring! And shooting in the glorious wide open spaces of Challenger Park is always wonderful!
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll recognize this above photo from a behind the scenes shot I posted!
