common questions & answers



A wedding, three new babies and family photos. She is simply the best! Taking pictures with children comes with so much stress and she has such a gift of being able to make it an enjoyable experience for all. She has an eye for the best lighting and I love that detail in our pictures. I would highly recommend Cayton Heath photography to anyone who wants their memories captured in a creative and friendly environment with high quality pictures you will love.

Your Signature Family Portrait Experience begins right here – with communication and connection! The most important part of this process is our connection. I want to take the time to make sure we chat about the vision you have for your session and how you want to display your heirlooms!

Your family session portraits are presented to you in a gorgeous linen box. We will lay these 4x6 portraits out and decide the ideal way to display them for your family. Then I will order your heirlooms and you can wait for their delivery in peace knowing that you have done something amazing for your family.

Happy delivery day!

Through this entire process my hope is that your family will cherish these new heirlooms and their memories for years and years to come. I hope that this experience is such a wonderful one for you that you would also consider sharing it with your family and friends so they too can have heirlooms in their homes! 

My hope and desire!

05: Cherish and Share

step 05 of 05

If your session is outdoors we can have as many extended family members as you like! If you would like to have the session in the studio space we get a little tight at any more than six participants.

01. How many people can be in our family portrait session?

Of course! I do not have dogs in my white studio space but we can go to an outdoor location that you think would suit the dog. I highly recommend someone that will not be in the session portraits come along as a doggy sitter when your furry friend is not in the shots.

02. Is it possible to have our dog in our family portraits?

The most stress free option would be to come and try on the client wardrobe on a date we decide on before your session. I have pieces size XS-4X in womens, various children’s sizes and size Large in men’s. If you would like to wear your own clothing I highly recommend that you choose soft tones and stay away from loud patterns that will date your photos and distract from your family’s bond or look terrible on the walls of your home.

03. What should we wear to our family portrait experience?

It's true…that camera comes out and sometimes kids get wild. Please don’t worry about me though. Your job is to stay positive and keep calm. Crazy kids can make some very iconic and memorable shots.

04. What happens if our children misbehave?

Of course! I have so many samples for you to touch and see for yourself and would love to help you make your Signature Portrait Experience perfect for your family. If there are additional products you would like I can help you order them at your ordering appointment.

05. We love the Signature Portrait Experience but want to add on more products…can we do that?

There are so many amazing photographers out there. But I truly believe you are where you are suppose to be right now! I'm thankful you are here.

The season of motherhood you are in deserves to be celebrated. I believe there is no better way to do that than by giving your portraits an elevated place in your home. Through statement framed portraits that shout, “look at these amazing kids I made” to heirloom luxury albums that will demand a tissue and big snuggles on the couch. No matter how you desire to elevate them I can help you do it!

Every Signature Portrait Experience includes a session of your choice, a linen box of beautiful 4x6 proof/ordering portraits, a choice of custom frame or album, and all the hi-res archival digital images. This standard offering has everything you want but can also be easily upgraded upon request if you feel like a little bit more best serves you.

As your photographer, I vow to give you a stress-free and fun photography experience with images of yourself and your family that you are proud to display for family and friends and is wholeheartedly built around celebrating you and your loved ones. I've photographed 600+ families since 2011, so I've learned a thing or two (or 12,257) about crafting the perfect portrait experience and creating timeless invaluable heirlooms your family will cherish.

Creating Heirlooms

Not only do we create these heirlooms together within every Signature Portrait Experience but my husband and I will deliver them personally to you upon their arrival. I have him come along if you have selected statement frames within your Signature Experience. Your heirlooms never spend a moment getting dusty, leaning against the wall, or on the floor dishonored. We gladly come and hang your frames for you; timely and professional. I can see your husband’s smile knowing he doesn’t have to do it!

The other reason we come and promptly hang your frames and deliver your albums is because of how it affects your children. Studies have shown that seeing portraits of themselves either on the wall or within an album raises children’s self-esteem. It says to the child, “Look how important and special you are! We love you so much we want to see you on the wall or in this special book! We are so glad you are in this family!” As a mom myself I know how important this is and I want to give that feeling to your children as promptly as I can.
