When you are expecting a precious child and they are growing within you there is so much to admire about what our body can do. I believe that maternity portraits are such a special experience to have during a time that takes less then a year of your life and its over.

My desire is that the Maternity Signature Portrait Experience you have with your growing belly and loved ones be as stress free as possible. Through countless hours of education, training, and countless maternity sessions to draw knowledge from, I have curated a maternity experience for your family that is unique and special.

Whether you choose to come into my Redding, CA studio space or have your session at a gorgeous outdoor location the service and quality of portraiture is consistent and unmatched.

There isn’t a more temporary state in a woman’s life that demands more admiration

common questions & answers



Taking my maternity pictures with Cayton was such a wonderful experience! If you’re like me and have no clue how to stand or what to do with your hands while getting your pictures taken, Cayton is your lady!She was so fun to work with and guided me through what to do. This was so helpful! Cayton also has a client wardrobe you can choose clothes from which made the photo shoot SO easy to prepare for!



Your Signature Maternity 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!

Get in touch and let's chat about the details!

01: Let’s Connect!

Once your booking has been confirmed through contract signing your Maternity Portrait Experience starts! We will work through wardrobe options, location, and I will send you my heirloom frames catalog so you can start dreaming.

The small things make for a big impact!

02: Plan and Dream

step 02 of 05

Your maternity session will be centered all around you, your beautiful belly and your loved ones (if you choose to have them participate). With all of the planning and preparing we do beforehand, you will start your session with confidence and end with cherished memories.

It's the day you've been waiting for!

03: Session Time

step 03 of 05

Your maternity 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!

step 04 of 05

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 06

The best time to book your Maternity Signature Portrait Experience is at the end of your first trimester or beginning of your 2nd trimester(this is the perfect time to get your newborn session booked as well). We want to have your maternity session, ideally, at the very end of your second trimester.

01. When should we book our Maternity Portrait Experience?

My top choice and the least stressful option would be to select a piece from the client's wardrobe. From there we will match anyone else who will be in the session with you. I have client wardrobe sizes XS-4X for women's, various children’s sizes and Large shirts for men. You can choose up to 3 different pieces for your session.

02. What should I wear for my Maternity Signature Portrait Experience?

Yes of course! Your immediate family can participate and be a part of this special experience.

03. Can I have more than just me in my maternity portraits?

One great thing about having a studio space (it really is my living room converted) is that no matter the weather your session will be a success! If studio isn’t what you have in your vision for the session then we can also shoot outdoors around sunset or in the early morning. I have many locations I love if you aren’t sure where you would like to go.

04. What locations do you recommend for a Maternity Portrait Session?

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.
