Catherine of the Sea Photography | About

I'm Cat. I am based out of Owatonna, Minnesota but I travel wherever the road takes me. I am pretty goofy, and talkative, and we're probably going to end up as best friends.

I love people. Period. I love hanging out, laughing, making jokes, and taking pictures the whole way.

Catherine of the Sea Photography photographs Children, Couples, Engagements, Families, Maternity, Newborns, Seniors, Weddings, and much more. Corporate events, bands, and head shots, too! I also do product photography upon request. I love quirky families, offbeat brides, and expressive individuals. 


Formerly Cat Manchack Photography.  


As an Artisan, well, I love to do everything I can.  I grew up with a mother who is a wonderful seamstress, and a father who is an abstract painter. We were always doing an art project, gardening, cooking, baking. Now I like to make soap (with flowers from my garden!), body and lip scrubs, and lip balms.  I also create jewelry, whether it be beading or hand stamped metal, leather, or various fibers.  My Etsy shop generally has a variety of things listed.  I also take custom orders.
