About Catrina

Lavender Harvest Photography is a professional photography service serving Ruston, LA and surrounding areas, with a commercial studio space residing in Jonesboro, LA.

I’ve really come to love photographing newborns and kids, as well as maternities and a little bit of wedding photography. I have spent the last 4 years photographing, studying, and educating myself in photography. Within the last year I have continued my education in several workshops concentrating on newborn photography. I pride myself on being highly experienced in handling and soothing newborns. I just love the images I can create with these tiny babies. I’ve felt that newborns were one of the most important milestones to capture since it’s the quickest milestone that leaves us. I always want to remember those moments.


My approach to photography is clean and simple, with natural and organic touches to fix it up. I’m here to capture the first moments of your newborn baby through my vision. I like to stay away from loud colors, costumes, or big props to create timeless photos that will last forever on your walls in your home. This in turn keeps your eye away from the distractions and you are directed to your sweet baby. Which is the whole reason you’re coming to me.


Your child is the most priceless gift God can ever give you. Capturing the first few days of your baby’s life with a photographer you connect with is as special as your wedding day. The love you have for your child is the celebration of love between two people. Those moments captured as photographs will be your memories forever…family heirlooms you will share with your child and their children for many years to come. Don’t regret missing it.
