Families with Toddlers Gallery




CT Family Portraits

With two children of my own, my love of photography came from wanting to freeze time and capture my children in each stage as they grew.  I’ve now gone on to photograph thousands of families over the last 5 years in business and its a real highlight of mine to see my newborn clients and babies grow up with their big brothers and sisters and parents.  Due to the very busy studio calendar  working with newborns in the mornings, ] outdoor family or baby milestone sessions are only booked 2 nights a week (typically Sunday and Monday evenings).  My outdoor family photo calendar runs from end of April thru end of October and fills up VERY quickly, again – due to the number of newborns and maternity photoshoots booked.

Client email list gets first dibs on booking outdoor portrait sessions when booking email goes out in March each year.  Any remaining spots or last-minute spots that open up are then open to new clients.  Simply submit the CONTACT form on this website or email us directly at sarencassottophotography@gmail.com to inquire about family photo availability.

“I’m a pretty typical guy when it comes to pictures – I don’t exactly love cameras. But Saren makes picture day as painless as it could possibly be. She is great with kids, patient, and she clearly has a real love of photography. She also has an uncanny ability to capture our kids’ natural expressions, and we love that the photographs are such accurate representations of our kids’ personalities. Saren has photographed our children twice now, and both times she has exceeded our expectations. I definitely recommend her!” – Jez M.

“From the second we met Saren, she immediately made us feel so comfortable, like we had known her for years . Having a one and a two year old I was so nervous we weren’t going to get any good pictures. I can barely get one of my kids to stay put for two seconds. Saren somehow managed to capture the most beautiful images of my family. I was beyond thrilled when I received my gallery. I’m so lucky to have these images to treasure for years to come. When I posted them on social media, one of my friends asked if they were for a magazine. Enough said. Use Saren, you will not be disappointed.” -Nicole R.

My family and I have recently had the privilege of being photographed for a holiday mini session and our photos are just perfect! I can hardly wait to display them in our home because they are so deeply evocative. Looking at these wonderfully captured images of my children just pulls at my heartstrings and it’s thanks to Saren’s keen and discerning eye. She masters her craft and is beyond professional in the process. It is so easy to get flustered by the chaos that can arise when photographing young children and yet she remains calm, confident and so so friendly. My youngest was quite fussy and uncooperative on the day of our shoot and Saren’s patience was key! Despite meeting us for the first time at the Christmas Tree Farm, she put us all at ease as though she’d known us for years. Beyond the final product (the photos that I will treasure for years), it was truly lovely meeting and working with her.

Also, I have had my eye on Saren’s beautiful work for 2 years now. At the time, I was very pregnant, new to the area and in search of a newborn photographer. I came across her website and just absolutely loved her photography, which in my opinion stood out amongst all others. Unfortunately, I was too short on time and couldn’t secure a spot in an otherwise very busy time of year. I have since then followed her on social media in hopes to snag a spot whenever the occasion would arise and I am so glad it has!” – Christina P.
