What my clients are saying:

“CYP is the only photographer we use for family pictures, milestone photos or even headshots. Caroline has natural talent that comes across as the best and most beautiful pictures. Her warm demeanor and infectious smile put everyone at east and she can somehow coax smiles out of toddlers, babies, and husbands alike. She turns her galleries around quickly with just the right amount of editing”. -LB

“Caroline is so engaging and the sessions feel very personal. She gets authentic smiles and moments and we always have fun. Family photos can be stressful, but she somehow makes it quick, easy, and a good time.” -CR

“CYP is who we used for all of our photo needs. They are better and better each year, right when we think they couldn’t be! This shows her professionalism and drive to be the best she can be. We love CYP!” -JP

“When you have a chaotic life with three little ones, sometimes its hard to stop and remember how to savor the moment. Caroline has captured my family through all of life’s big moments. The first session we had with her were “soon to be big brother” photos right before my daughter was born. I loved them so much, I had her come back for our newborn photos and we’ve been using her ever since. Her warm and welcoming demeanor helps my kids to be comfortable around her. She is able to capture their little personalities since they genuinely LIKE her. Nothing seems too staged too posed and she does them SHOCKINGLY fast. She’s captured holiday cards, birthdays, another pregnancy and baby, and just because! We’ve never been less than ecstatic. She has a speedy turn around, and will send sneak peeks! You can tell she loves what she does because she wants you to see the joy as soon as possible. I look forward to using CYP for all of life’s exciting moments for years to come!” -AA

We have used Caroline York Photography for the last several years for our holiday cards and have been so pleased. Caroline is incredibly easy to work with, kids love her, and she can take amazing pictures in a short amount of time. She is so talented! I highly recommend Caroline York Photography.”    -HB

“Caroline is quick, funny, efficient, and we always end up with beautiful memories in our photos. I used to be hesitant about family sessions, but she’s shown us the importance of capturing these moments.” -MG
