Work With Me - Sunshine Portraits Photography

Sunshine Portraits Photography

Philadelphia and Long Beach Island Photographer

I have been drawn to photography for as long as I can remember; whether it was snapping shots of the horses I grew up riding, shooting friends competing in our summer lifeguard races, or capturing beautiful landscapes during my travels. But after my children were born my interest turned into something more then I ever could have imagined. I bought my first digital camera about two years ago, and haven't looked back since. I find what began as a love for capturing my own children has naturally evolved into a newfound profession I love. 

Although I am primarily a children's photographer, I do shoot families and newborns as well. I specialize in creating a relaxed environment for your children to be themselves, and after the shoot is through, provide hand edited  photographs for you to cherish and print.  

Creating beautiful portraits in beautiful settings is what I do best. Please send me an email for further information regarding pricing and booking.

My sessions are usually done outdoors and typically last 45 minutes to an hour. I mostly shoot in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia but do go to other locations upon request which may be subject to an extra fee. 

Newborn shoots are done at your location and can take up to two hours.

Within two weeks of your shoot, you will receive a 20-30 hand edited images which are yours to download and keep. You are able to print these anywhere you like, but I always encourage clients to use my site for prints as they are processed at a professional lab and  the print quality is unparalleled. Make sure to use this service for your enlargements! I cannot guarantee print quality off other sites.


"Cathy was so relaxed and so sweet with our daughter throughout the session...and [Cathy] put me at ease within seconds. Then we saw the photos and we were just in awe of her amazing work!"  ~Ali V.

"Cathy is amazing!!! Always beautiful, artistic photos."

~Sabrina F.

"Cathy is a genius behind the lens, her ability to capture my children in their natural glory was unparalleled. Perhaps most important, Cathy made the shoot fun and worked wonders with their energy levels and attention spans. I'm so looking forward to working with Cathy again to capture another precious age and season." ~Allison D.
