Welcome, Friends!

Authentic.  .   Quintessential  .   Joyful

capturing the special
bond with your
once in a lifetime  horse


Hi, I'm Catherine. A dog loving, horseback riding, southern girl who was raised on Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs, North Carolina BBQ and classic rock, & fun fact: I only have one dimple. When I'm not capturing the amazing bond between people and their horses, you can find me hanging out with my son and bulldog, snuggled up on the couch (with the dog in my lap), working hard on my laptop, or trying to cook a new recipe I found on Pinterest . . . not because I love to cook, but because I love to eat!

Meet Catherine

"Catherine is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. She captures every expression and her work is amazing!!!"

"Catherine Crane Photography = Amazing. Catherine is unbelievably professional and talented. She has a vision and captures it! I couldn't be happier with the Senior Portraits she did for my daughter. Highly recommend her!"

"These photos are one of my most prized possessions, When I moved and had to put my things in storage I refused to put my canvases in there, so now my mom's house looks like a shrine of us until my house is ready!! Can't thank you enough for doing these, I never knew just how much they would mean to me!"

"Catherine has such a great eye for seeing what the picture can capture. She knows how to bring out the personality of those she photographs! I would highly recommend her!"

Life without horses . . . I don't think so!
