Babies and Beauties Photography focuses on preserving memories by creating custom art pieces that can be enjoyed in your home every day. There is always a sense of magic in discovering photos of relatives and loved ones tucked away in basements and attics but it always made me a little sad that they weren’t on display where they could be seen and enjoyed. That feeling has led me to seek out the highest quality, archival materials so that your portraits can be enjoyed now and for years to come.

Every part of the process of making a portrait is essential and I guide my clients through it from start to finish. My goal is that you never feel unprepared or unaware of what the next step is, so I have created a portrait business that does just that.  I will be with you every step of the way!

I heard about Babies & Beauties through a friend. Cathee was very friendly and professional in our consultation. I was impressed by her previous work and by all she had to offer. Cathee did the newborn photos for my son, who was born in August 2016. My husband and I absolutely loved the photos. They were so beautiful that we called her again when our daughter was born in February 2021. 
Cathee is a natural with babies. She was so patient with our son, who had colic, and our daughter, who hated being unwrapped/cold! I’m kind of amazed that she was able to get any good photos at all! But there were so many gorgeous photos, I had a really hard time deciding which to print and use for my baby announcements!
I’m so grateful to Babies & Beauties for capturing this special time in our lives and for providing these keepsakes to help us remember a time that is so short and so precious. I truly appreciate the love and care that Cathee puts into each photo. Her talent and professionalism are apparent in everything she does.
The printing studio was also excellent and the final product was stunning!

Cathee is a dream to work with. The way she soothes and calms the babies, even as little as one and two weeks, is just magical. The photography is soft, elegant, sweet – everything you want your baby photos to be. And she listened when I wanted some less conventional accessories for my little girl (a bit less pink than maybe is usual). I love my photos of my babies, and so do my girls who are almost 2 and 5 now. We get to enjoy them daily, and we’re saving space on the wall for Cathee’s photos of our future little ones.
