About Us


At Catherine Clay Photography, our goal is to capture your child : their personality, their quirks, their glow.

We want you to remember their LOOK and ultimately their SPIRIT. We strive to capture natural and raw beauty. We do not specialize in traditional posed portraiture, rather unscripted interaction and connection.

Catherine is an on-location / natural light photographer. This means that she utilizes only natural light in her photography and, therefore; all sessions are weather permitting. Catherine comes to your home or will meet you at a local setting of your choice. Catherine is based out of the Dallas, Texas area; however, she is available for travel throughout the United States. Please contact us for travel rates.


Catherine does a limited number of sessions per week and is typically booked at least two months in advance; however, during the fall, the sessions are booked up to three months in advance. She also takes the month of December off in order to spend time with her family during the holidays.

If you are expecting a child, and would like Catherine to shoot newborn pictures, it is best to schedule several months in advance in order to ensure availability. We recommend shooting within the first two weeks of life.


It is important to choose the right photographer for you. Catherine specializes in candid photojournalistic images that are not forced or posed. She wants to capture your children as they are. A question often asked is Does Catherine do family portraits? Catherine would love to capture your family, but in a relaxed unscripted manner. If you are looking for traditional family pictures, with everyone looking at the camera saying cheese?, Catherine is not the photographer for you. Please become acquainted with our work so that we can meet and exceed your expectations.
