About Me

Hi, I’m Cheryl Catton and I am the photographer behind Cheryl Catton Photography. I am a fully insured bump to babies and beyond photographer, based in a lovely village called Horsell in Woking, Surrey (UK).

I am a Sydney-sider who packed up my life in sunny Australia and moved to the other side of the world to start an adventure of a lifetime. Many years on and my adventure continues here in the UK, with an extremely supportive husband and two very energetic little ones running by my feet!

I’ve always loved photography. I was that annoying girl at school who always had her camera in her friends’ faces, trying to take photos of every occasion. However, my passion really grew after I had my daughter. Capturing those milestones really is everything, and as a wife and a parent, I understand the desire to record these special moments with your family and freeze frame memories. I absolutely love looking back at photos of my children, remembering the story behind the photos, remembering how I felt and how they were at that moment in time.

I love light and shadows, muted colours and my style leans towards simplicity and purity. The main aim during my sessions is to capture connections and emotions. Whether it be an expectant mum looking down and admiring her growing bump, an older sibling proudly looking at their new baby brother or sister, a cheeky smile from a little one who has just learnt to sit up by themselves, or a knowing look between a couple.

I have been lucky enough to be trained by extremely talented and inspiring photographers such as Beata Baran, Kristina Mack, Nina Mace, Gary Hill and Tracy Willis.

I look forward to meeting you and your gorgeous family and capturing beautiful images for you to treasure for a lifetime.
