Not only is Cathys work beautiful, she is a pleasure to work with. We were a large group, with several little kids. She was patient, fun, and created a no-stress atmosphere to capture loads of natural smiles. We would absolutely book Cathy again! Maureen Boggio

my daughter has this thing for the camera...she just hates it and is less than cooperative when you start taking pictures. I was very nervous before the session but it turned out great! cathy has an amazing personality! she made me feel at ease and went above and beyond to make my lil munchkin feel comfortable and get her to smile. she was able to sneak  some great shots and make mama laugh too. I felt much better before our second session (thank you for accommodating holiday pics with such a last minute request!) thank you for everything, cathy! anna kulinska

cathy is an exceptional photographer! she has a great talent in working with children, as she kept my son engaged throughout the entire session! We are so happy to have worked with her and look forward to another fun session with cathy in the future! Valerie papain

cathy took the photos for my daughters first birthday cake smash and honestly I cannot say enough good things. not only was cathy professional but she was so beyond amazing with charli! I am currently coming up with reasons why I need more photos! thank you so much cathy!! colleen follano

we are so happy we found out about cathy to take photos of our family with our newborn. not only was she a pleasure to work with but the photos came out incredible. she is also a baby whisperer - she rocked our daughter to sleep mid photoshoot to get the perfect shot! lauren beckman

we love, love, love cathy gillen photography!! always professional and the kids love her! kalli katos

cathy took family photos of my one moth old and three year old. she was wonderful with both kids, incredibly patient and fun (at one point even rocking the baby to sleep for the perfect photo!) she managed to get natural smiles from my 3 year old (not just that forced "cheeeese" smile that parents knows so well) as a mom of 4, she clearly knew all the tricks. highly recommend! patty poreda

Such a great experience having outdoor photos done for the first time! It was cold outside and you wouldn’t even know from the pictures. Cathy was so good with my little ones and the shots came out perfect! We are beyond happy with everything! Effie sotiriou

Cathy did our newborn photo shoot and the photos came out amazing!!! She was so patient and accommodating with our baby, and was able to get the most perfect shots! Caitlin fradelakis

Cathy is such a great photographer ! She's easy to communicate with and her work is outstanding!! She took the most beautiful photos of my 9 year old!! I highly recommend her !!! I can't wait to make my holiday photo card ... it going to be very hard to choose just one!!!!! Jennifer cederroth 

Cathy is extremely talented. She photographed my 1 week old daughter and was so patient and kind. Cathy went above and beyond to make our baby comfortable and happy throughout the photoshoot. Her creativity shines in her photos! My husband and I loved all of the photos captured of our little one! I will be sure to recommend Cathy Gillen to any of my friends and family. diana doroski

I'm so glad that I found Cathy! I cannot take a photo of my own child because he refuses to look at the camera no matter what I do. Cathy was able to capture some great shots of him and get him to smile and even laugh. She's fabulous! Her sneak peeks are fun which are such teasers because you can't wait to see the rest. Her props and set ups are the cutest! She's very efficient and reliable. I have used her for several mini sessions this year. She's so pleasant, great with kids and such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her! Chantal giambrone

we had such a great experience doing the fall mini session with cathy! she was so nice, took the time to ask us what we wanted and knew how to work with a sassy 3yr old. and of course we loved our pictures! we will definitely be using her again. abby loring garofalo

im not sure how cathy does it year after year, but she always captures the perfect shots, which isn't asy with our son and dog! she is a pleasure to work with! amy kohn

cathy was wonderful with my family. it was a cold and windy day but looking at the photos you would never know it! even my teenage daughter is happy with the photos and she is a hard sell! sona hyde
