Charlottesville Family wrote this about me and I can’t really say it any better than they did.
“Beth Seliga is the creative talent behind the lens at 3 Cats Photo. Passionate about photography from an early age, Beth has experience shooting in many different contexts. She began her career traveling the world as a professional sports photographer with her work appearing in publications including Sports Illustrated, USA Today and Pro Cycling magazine. After having kids and settling down in Albemarle County, Beth transitioned to portraiture.
Although she enjoyed the exhilarating days of photographing cyclists from the back of a motorcycle, Beth has a special place in her heart for capturing families on her camera.
“I am a story-teller show specialized in documenting the energy and joy within children and the love and bond between couples of all ages” says Mom, wife and owner of 4 (no longer just 3!) cats.”

What we believe in (besides love, sunny days and sweets)
We love kids, the Earth and animals. So, I donate my time to Red Thread Sessions, I donate 5% of my profits to Farm Sanctuary and I spend quite a bit of time hunting down natural, organic and sustainable products.
