AUTHENTIC, JOYFUL, & UNSCRIPTED

Lifestyle Photographer in Maple Grove

Babies & families should be captured as they are, not as we think they "should" be. I'm all about relaxed direction and real, unscripted moments. My goals when you step in front of my camera:

 

» Help you connect and look your best without feeling rigid.

» Have my sense of calm rub off on you. Photos shouldn't be stressful!

» Tell your story: The in-between bits, the details, and the movement.

We'll work well together if...

 

» You appreciate the real moments vs. planned ones.

» Perfection is not your goal, and posing isn't your jam.

» You aren't afraid to be silly and show affection.

» Studios totally aren't your thing.

Called each of my six kids by name...

"Kara is an amazing photographer. The images she creates are so authentic and unique. She's friendly and personal (she even called each of my six kids by name multiple times during the photo session!), great with kids, funny, and easy going. So happy we found her!"
