AUTHENTIC, JOYFUL, AND UNSCRIPTED
NEWBORN & FAMILY LIFESTYLE
I'm all about relaxed direction and real, unscripted moments. My goals when you step in front of my camera:
» Make it possible for you to CONNECT with each other and with your photos.
» Have my sense of CALM rub off on you. Photos can feel like a lot, and I don't want you to stress.
» Tell your STORY: The in-between bits, the details, and the movement.
"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!

LAID-BACK & NATURAL
Babies & families should be captured as they are, not as we think they "should" be. 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.
» You're jazzed about NOT heading to a studio.
"Kara is so easy going and friendly that it doesn't feel overwhelming."
