Cailey was great to work with. We were a larger group (including 6 kids) and she was incredibly patient with us and got some beautiful pictures. We were thrilled with how they turned out and with how many she took - she really went above and beyond. Highly recommend! More...

Cailey at Phreckles Photography is awesome! We vacationed to Colorado this summer and wanted to capture memories with family photos. We had a fun and relaxed photo shoot. The finished pics came quickly and turned out great! I since created a collage wall of varying sizes of canvas. The company printing the canvases told me the photos were obviously professional quality. They were right, and our photo wall turned out amazing. Thanks Phreckles!! More...

Cailey did pictures for our daughter turning one year old, and incorporated big brother into a few shots as well. She took her time, took a lot of pictures and was very patient with the kiddos! We were very pleased with the outcome, she captured some priceless moments! More...

Cailey is an amazing photographer! I would highly recommend her to anyone I know looking to have professional photos taken at a reasonable price. Cailey not only takes stunning photos and really does a wonderful job capturing some special moments, but it's her glowing, friendly personality that is incredibly inviting, warm and makes you feel totally comfortable so the photos she takes come out really natural and unstaged (even if you hate having your photo taken and can be really nervous in front of the camera). I had maternity photos and newborn photos taken by Cailey and we will treasure them forever. Phreckles photography is awesome! More...

Cailey did the photography for my new website and I couldn't be happier. She had a tough subject since I'm pretty camera shy, but she put me at ease with her corny jokes (har har) and just-chill demeanor. She knows how to put the heart and soul into a photograph. The final results were totally me...only better! Thanks, Cailey! More...

Cailey did a wonderful job capturing such a magical moment on the beach with our 2 year old son. He was running around, having a blast and she jumped into action capturing his smile, running, and pure joy on his face. I am so thankful that she captured that true beauty of the moment with our family and I am forever grateful. Thank you Cailey, we will never forget Finn running around on the beach of Maine thanks to you and your amazing skills! More...

Cailey did a maternity shoot for me and as any pregnant mama can imagine, it's a special and nerve racking time but she was able to put me at ease immediately. Not only is she extremely friendly, she is welcoming and funny and I feel like we quickly became friends. On top of that, she is really good at her job! The photos came out beautifully and the way she was able to tweak them to truly bring out the beauty and rawness of everything was fantastic. I would recommend Phreckles Photography to anyone that wants a professional, friendly, warm and talented photographer to document their special day (whatever that may be!) More...

Q&A

I believe great photographs come from capturing real moments. My favorite photos are always the least planned. It's harder than posing, but the reward is massive.

Do you like being photographed? Usually the answer is no. My job is to make it as pain-free as possible.

I love working for myself, setting my own hours. I also love meeting new people, sharing in their big moments and telling their stories. I'm a writer and a photographer, I love a good story. Especially a good love story.

I worked as a reporter/photojournalist for the local newspaper here for three years. I loved it but I was tired of the long hours and crummy pay. Having my own photography business had been a dream of mine since childhood. Every year I enjoy it more.

I'm fun, friendly, professional and generous. You receive EVERY good photo I take. I hold nothing back. It means a lot of editing, but I would rather my clients have the images than for them to die on the cutting room floor - unseen.
