Hello, I'm Catherine!

A film photographer capturing
weddings, engagements and families
in New England and beyond. 

I’m so glad you’re here, and I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy these blog posts! I blog all kinds of love stories, from engagements and weddings to new moms, babies and family sessions. I focus primarily on my film photography, candid and authentic moments, and intentional styling and unique details. 


Swampscott Family Photographer

This beautiful Swampscott family session was one of my favorite portrait sessions of 2021. Thank you for this sweet family for allowing me to document these sweet moments.

I met this lovely Marblehead family in Swampscott at Phillips Beach, one of my favorite locations for photos on the Northshore. The tall grasses and gorgeous white sand always makes family photos here so beautiful. It’s also so nice to be able to bring your pup to the family session, which you can do at Phillips Beach.

I used a combination of Portra 400 and Ilford HP5 Plus for this family session. Although Portra 400 is forever my favorite film stock, I really love the nostalgia and grain in the black and white images. These photos already feel like timeless family heirlooms. I use solely film now for my family portrait sessions, and I now included a print product with each session.

If you are searching for a Swampscott family photographer for your own family photos, I am taking a limited number of sessions this year. Inquire today to secure a spot on my summer calendar! You can contact me here.
