“Catrina was amazing to work with. Once we arrived to start I was immediately put at ease which isn’t easy with a 2 year old and 7 month old in tow. Catrina had a vision and executed it beautifully. She listened to what we wanted and wasn’t frustrated when the kids needed a break. She actually jumped right in and got our 7 month old to cooperate! I never felt like I was being ordered to stand somewhere or placed just to get a pretty picture. Comfort was the main priority and I cannot thank Catrina enough for the wonderful experience.” -Courtney

“I have known Catrina for a couple of years now and I have admired the eye and the perspective evident in her photos. When I made this decision to do a photo shoot with my horse there was only one person I knew who could execute my vision. Catrina and I brainstormed several ideas and came up with several grand ideas for this epic photo shoot. Catrina was punctual and professional and patient with me and my horse during the entire visit. Her turn around time is impeccable and I was very thrilled to see the sneak peek photos first… it made the grand reveal so much sweeter. I would recommend Catrina to anyone looking to take keepsake photos that capture memories for a lifetime.” -Abriana

“Not only is Catrina’s portrait work stunning, but she captures the true emotions of the moment. It was an unbelievable experience having her capture my birth story. It will always be there for me to look back on, and for that I’m so thankful.” -M

“Catrina was amazing to coordinate and shoot my maternity/family session! We weren’t very near each other but were able to find a very fitting location right in between, and she was very accommodating to do so. This was in late June in eastern NC. It was hot. Even at sunset. And we had a brand new two year old daughter at the time. Hot, pregnant mama with wild-child 2yo = asking for disaster! But, Catrina was so so patient with all of us! Being a photographer myself, I am VERY picky/particular about hiring another photographer. You’d think being a photographer would make it easier for me or at least I’d know what to do. Negative! I am not naturally comfortable in front of a camera and always have stiff, awkward smiles. Every single image Catrina captured, I actually look like I’m enjoying myself and truly happy.. because I WAS! She made it easy to relax and enjoy my big belly and not worry so much about our daughter being a crazy one. That’s who she is, and she captured that perfectly. She was able to get some beautifully posed shots but also many natural, in-the-moment, that’s-so-my-family shots. I love literally every single one! I would 100% hire Catrina to work with again!!” -CatieJo

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have Catrina photograph many shows I have attended as well as do a family session. She is the best at what she does. Always catches the horses at the perfect moment and makes every rider look great. I love when she’s the show photographer because I know I can just put my phone down and she will get some great pictures for me! No need to worry. She did a great job in the family photo shoot as well. Highly recommend.” – Hannah

“Catrina has done several sessions for me, my family, and our business. The one that stands out the most is my Maternity session. I was on the edge of not wanting to follow through with it, and she convinced me to do it. I was feeling less than beautiful during my third trimester (and specifically that day), but after seeing the pictures, I was so happy she helped me make up my mind to do them. Her photos turned out perfect and she capture the beauty I had no idea existed in me during that time. Not only that, but she took some candid shots of one of my favorite dogs who passed away shortly after the session. I’ll be able to look back at those pictures and cherish those moments with that sweet pup and show my little girl what a cool dog he was when she grows up. It is always a pleasure to work with Catrina because she has a way of always knowing what to say to get one to feel better about themselves. I love any excuse to show friends the pictures she has taken of me.” – Gracie
