I'm so glad you're here! Let me introduce myself
I'm a 27 year old hard working, passionate country girl who loves her family, the outdoors and any animal I can get my hands on.
Making sure you receive beautiful photographs is of course my top priority, but making sure your experience is incredible while getting them done is just as, if not more important to me!
I want every person to walk away from my sessions with a smile on their face and a new found love of getting their photo taken!

Words of love from Hayley
Caitie is absolutely amazing! From the initial email to organising the time and place to the actual session Caitie was professional, warm, friendly and so down to earth!
She made our family feel so at ease and able to be ourselves. She listened to the photos we wanted to capture and went above and beyond to make sure they were perfect!!
Considering all the boys didn’t want to do it they walked away saying how much fun they had, thank you!!! Thank you for making that experience so wonderful for our family
Frequently Asked Questions!
We have never had professional photos done before and don't know what to expect, how do we not be awkward?
So many of my previous clients were in the exact same position and they came away with a whole new refreshed view on what getting photos taken is like. First of all, I am here for any questions or concerns you may have and each of my clients get a What to Expect Guide which walks you through everything you need to know. When it comes to your session, I like to start off by getting to know each other a little better while walking to our spot. Once we settle in, I'll give you a few fun, shake of the nerves type off games to loosen everyone up. Before you know it our session will be over and you'll wonder where the time went! So don't worry at all, I've got you the whole way!
Do you offer printing?
Yes! Every gallery I send out has a online print store connected which is super easy to use, has great quality (which I personally use) and they ship straight to your door! I believe our photos aren't meant to just sit on our phones and get looked at every now and then. They need to be printed, framed and proudly show cased in our homes so all can enjoy.
Do you travel and do you have locations you suggest?
Yes I am keen to travel to wherever you may want your photos taken! There will be a small travel fee depending on how far it is located from my home base of Sale.
Each client that books in with me can either have their photos taken at a desired location like their home or property or I have some beautiful locations local to Sale and its surrounding areas that I recommend. Depending on what style you like and what resonates to you and your family, I can help you find what is the most suitable.
Is there a limit on how many family members I can bring to an extended family session and will everyone get photos?
No there is absolutely no limit. The more the merrier I say! The largest group I have had so far was 40 people and it was a great time.
I like spend time with everyone and capture a huge range of combinations from large group shots with everyone in, smaller immediate family shots, to you and your gorgeous grandma or dad. Some families like to give me a list of their 'must have' shots which is great for me to have also.
Keep an eye out for my seasonal mini sessions!
These are advertised on my Social media pages

These include Mothers mini sessions in April just in time for mothers day. Family Christmas mini sessions to which are a lot of fun to get everyone involved in!

More kind words from amazing clients
We highly recommend Caitie Richardson Photography. We have never had professional photos done before so we had no idea what to expect. This experience was amazing, we were so comfortable & Caitie guided us on what to do & was so amazing with our girls who can be very shy. It only took a few minutes & the girls loved every minute of it following Caitie around the whole time. We had the best experience & are in love with all the images we received which were super quick & easy to get. Thank you so much Caitie for giving us lifetime memories.

Caitie’s laid-back country girl personality immediately put everyone at ease and we genuinely had such a fun time.
Caitie explained to the kids that we were going to do all the fun stuff they like doing… which involved cartwheels, running, jumping, swinging and climbing. Then she snapped them in action - no sitting and forcing smiles for the camera here!
I was actually so surprised at how many beautiful shots we had, as we often didn’t even realise she was shooting.
The whole afternoon was just perfect. Not only do we have beautiful photos but also memories of a great day as well
My kids and I had some family photos done as our first since becoming a fam of 3. Caitie captured all of our personalities perfectly. allowed the kids to be their cheeky selves and explore and took every unplanned photo opportunity in her stride.
She made us all feel welcome and comfortable and I'm obsessed with the photos she's created for us. Was actually crying going through our gallery, I am thrilled.
Thankyou so much Caitie - your one in a million xx
Erin and her family
- Caitie is bloody amazing not only as a photographer but as a human! I knew from the start for family photos that I wanted her to do them and she was incredible. She went above and beyond at organising our massive family of 25 and made everyone have a great time and the photos turned out gorgeous! 100/10 every day
- We all 100% recommend. Caitie did a phenomenal job of making sure everyone (all 27 of us) felt comfortable and at ease as she went about her job. She was fun, personable and loved to have a chat. The photos she sent through were incredible and captured so much laughter and love.
