Hello!  I am so glad you have decided to visit my page.  My name is Athenia Cato, and I am a freelance photographer. Through the encouragement of family and friends, I have decided to step out into making a career out of my passion.

Most of my work is artistic, and most of my work features nature and travel photography. I also enjoy writing, so feel free to browse through my blogs under the tab, From the Mind of the Photographer. I am also available for portrait work as well. I can photograph the whole family…including the dog (bird, cat, ferret…maybe the fish, but I’m not sure.) I am also available for weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, engagements, graduation…well you get the picture. Just shoot me a note from the Contact tab, and I’ll be happy to give you a quote!

My husband of 22 years, Jason Cato, assists me with matting and framing my fine art pieces, and recently we have developed a technique for attaching my photos to keepsake boxes which we construct from start to finish. He and my daughter, Kat, also assist with the long festival days and have proven to be experts in sales and wooing the festival goers. You can see some of our work under the tab, Featured Works, or you can go straight to my Etsy shop by clicking the tab, ACButterflyPhoto Etsy Shop. And if you ever happen to be traveling through Georgia, you can see some of our work up-close and personal (and available for purchase) at The Covington Trading Company in Covington, GA, The Icehouse Creative in Madison, GA, and The Sycamore Street Pizzaria in Social Circle, GA.

As you browse my site, feel free to contact me with any questions about anything you see, whether a photo from an adventure, a destination I’ve traveled to, a critter I’ve captured in picture, or anything else of interest. I’m happy to chat! And if you would like a specific photo in print, or if you would like to commission a piece, I am ready for that as well! Just give me a buzz on the contact tab! And if you want a slideshow with some music, my son, Jonathan, can set you up with a presentation with his own original music!

Enjoy your stop by my site, and in my best and purest Georgia girl accent, “Y’all come back now, ya hear!”
