Meet Your Photographer

Shay Cathleen Photography

Photographer specializing in newborn & family lifestyle photography.

Living in rural Canada in an 1800's stone home; with my husband, two girls and a polar bear dog. You can find me on Instagram @shaycathleenphotography @shaycathleen, where I share client photos and personal glimpses of my everyday life. I love being outside and exploring. I spent most of my late teens and early twenties traveling the world; this is where my passion for photography began. I saw the beauty of the world and wanted to freeze every moment in time.

I try to find the beauty in everything and love challenging myself and growing every step of the way. I became a member of Clickin Moms when my 1st daughter was born in 2015 and have taken some incredible courses. Since I am a self taught photographer I take every opportunity I can get to improve my work.


Get inspired and excited for your shoot. Look at the memories captured.

"We just got our newborn photos back from Shay; we are so in love. Working with Shay was so easy - we were a little hesitant about doing newborn photos, but we are so happy that we did. Shay was a true professional, and so easy to work with. She made the entire shoot so comfortable. We look forward to working with her again to capture future family photos!"
