Capturing your Motherhood journey in the greater Seattle area

Seattle Maternity and Motherhood Photographer

Choosing me as your Maternity Photographer is really just the beginning of our friendship together. As a mother myself and a professional photographer, it is such an honor to capture and celebrate your motherhood journey. I want to encourage and uplift you during pregnancy, those newborn days and throughout the incredible milestones. I love watching your family grow and provide images that show your timeless love and connection.

Seattle Maternity, Motherhood & Family Photographer

Hey there, my name is Casey Louise Thornton and I am your PNW Maternity, Motherhood and Family professional photographer! Your motherhood journey matters and should be captured! I specialize in lifestyle photography and am located in the greater Seattle area of Washington. This adorable toddler is who made me a mother and sparked my passion for supporting other moms. Being a Seattle maternity photographer allows me to connect with and celebrate pregnant moms from the beginning of their experience. Creating connections with families brings me energy and joy, fueling my passion for photography.

As a professional photographer, whether it be maternity, newborn or family portraits you want captured, I strive to make your experience comfortable and exciting. I strive to provide Maternity photography that builds confidence and celebrates the strength of your body. Being inclusive is something that has always been important to me. If you identify as a mother, I want to celebrate you. This is a safe place for BIPOC as well as people in the LGBTQ+ community. I am honored to show your strength and connection through my lens. I want to give you portraits you will cherish for generations. Sessions with me focus on your affection and love for each other. Your photoshoot will be fun and relaxed for everyone including toddlers and husbands. My Family portraits are focused on your connection. I can't wait to celebrate your parent journey with you! Western Washington is my primary location and I love traveling and hiking so let's adventure together!

LIFE UPDATE! I'm Pregnant! Baby arriving August 2024

What to expect from me during this exciting time:

After my daughter turned one, we started trying for a second baby. After being diagnosed with secondary unexplained infertility we decided to seek fertility treatment. Almost two years later we were thrilled and relieved to find out we were going to have a second baby join our family. 

So, now that you know our personal journey getting here what does that mean for you?! Well, my current plan is to go to sessions up until labor starts. My due date is August 18th. Once baby arrives I plan to stay home for approximately 6 weeks depending on healing. Even though I will physically not be able to attend your sessions during that time, I WILL continue to proceed with all client correspondence and hand editing personally. My associate Ciarra will be attending all sessions in person for me to capture your beautiful images exactly how I would myself.

As your maternity photographer and motherhood friend I want to support your experience beyond our photography sessions together. Here are a few blogs that will help you connect with other local pre & post natal providers as well as prepare for your sessions!

“Casey is amazing! We had such a wonderful experience doing a newborn shoot with her. Our baby was 11 days old and we were overwhelmed just trying to figure out how to survive with a newborn. Casey was so wonderful and made the photo shoot so easy and fun! We love the photos she took and are so thankful that she helped us capture this special time. I would highly recommend her and can't wait to do another shoot with her soon!”
Seattle Newborn Session
“5 stars simply is not enough!! Our family had the best experience with Casey for our newborn/family session. She was so accommodating, easy going and fun to work with. She was able to make our toddler comfortable in front of the camera and capture some of the most priceless photos! Her turnaround time was quicker than expected and the photos turned out so beautiful! We will absolutely be using her again!”
Snohomish Family Session
"I could not be happier with how our maternity photos from Casey turned out!! She did a phenomenal job and was so easy to work with. This was the first time my husband and I had taken professional photos together since we got married 9 years ago. We were nervous but Casey was great at giving us guidance and making us feel comfortable. She was also very willing to include our dog in the photo shoot. I would 100% have photos done with Casey again!!"
