Hello, My name is Cathy Mitchell & I live in Wilmington, NC with my husband & our two Boxers, Joey & Maddy. My love for 4 legged friends & photography is why I decided to start Wiggle Butts Pet Photography. Since I was little I always loved animals. I grew up with multiple cats, 2 amazing German Shepherds & as an adult I rescued a Pitt/Boxer mix named Jake who was my BFF until he sadly passed. I now have two Boxers and they are just hysterical, I can't help but laugh and smile at all the silly things they do every day. When I was 5 my parents bought me my first horse and so began every little girl's childhood fantasy...horses! As a kid I spent almost all my free time out at the barn. I showed horses until my 20's then continued working with horses for many years after. But I was ready for a change of pace and began dog walking and pet sitting. Photography always came naturally to me but once I became a dog walker I realized how much I loved photographing peoples pets!! So I went out and bought my first DSLR camera, started taking photography classes, joined a photography club, and started working with local animal rescues. Since my two biggest passions are animals & photography I figured why not do something I love and start my own pet photography business, and the rest is history.
