For your untamed kiddos.
A boy planting his face in a donut. A girl dizzy and dangling from the monkey bars at the park. A hike in the woods in your favorite corner of the world. More than incredible images, unscripted storytelling is real, raw, and timeless. Let's capture your sweet kiddos just as they are, not as they "should" be, with documentary style photography.
YOUR SPACE TELLS
A home, a yard, a hike in the woods, an afternoon at the park. The places matter just as much as the faces, and together they tell an epic story. Let's create priceless portraits and candid captures in an environment that you love.
REAL, RAW STORIES AREN'T DIRECTED. THEY ARE CAPTURED, THEN SET FREE.
Documentary-style photography is not only knowing how to see perfection, but also understanding what it takes to capture it. As your documentarian, I aim to tell the real story in photos, not a fabricated one.
I love helping people see the beauty of the story that's already there, without fluff of neatly folded hands or strain of eyes to the camera. Nix the rigidity of rules. Spills and spontaneous dancing. Messy faces and dimly lit spaces. They're all welcome.
If documentary photography were a person, she'd be curious, patient, quiet, and confident. Full of joy and the epitome of life. A free spirit finding wonder in every adventure, both big and small. Independent, non-adhering, and comfortable with being wildly different.
She wouldn't wait for the next well-defined milestone to choose to celebrate and slow down to remember. She would choose now, knowing that the current moment is fleeting. Her awareness fueling the desire to live fiercely. Right now.
Raw, natural, unhindered, relevant, unprompted, spontaneous. This is as real as it gets.

EVEN MY CAMERA SHY TWO-YEAR-OLD
I'm so glad I asked Kara to photograph my family! She came to us and I just stood by as she engaged with my young children and impressively got really great, fun, natural photos of my children going about their day (even my camera-shy two-year-old). I appreciate her thoroughness in laying out the process and what to expect...she even provided tips about choosing what to wear!
