FOR THE DARILING

who dare to slow down

Call it cliché, but seriously. I remember being in the hospital like it was yesterday. Much too quickly I watched my five-year-old hang up his backpack before I retreated to the bathroom to stifle a scream cry. I can't be the only one. I'm sure you're also wondering where the time has gone. So let's hit that pause button. Put our phones down. Ignore the goldfish crumbs, messy counters, and mounds of loyal laundry. And take a deep breath together.

YOUR ONLY JOB: RELAX & ENJOY YOUR FAMILY

Do you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera? Does it sort of feel like you need to perform, and like your hands are somehow on display? What if we stripped all that nonsense away? What if your only job was to simply interact and enjoy your family as you would during any other family outing or date night?

Let me worry about angles and where you should put your hands. You just focus on breathing your family in. Cuddle in, crack some jokes, tickle away, and just be.

You can take a break with a cup of coffee and enjoy your family while I play with your kids on the floor. Or we can play some silly word games while exploring some nature. Feel free to think of it as reaping all the benefits of a babysitter while I capture this precious yet chaotic season.

"Okay, Kara, I CAN’T EVEN! A sincere thank you for delivering EXACTLY what I was hoping for you to capture! The photos captured our relationships with each other, all of our personalities and the intense love we have for our sweet fur baby. You listened to everything I said and didn’t miss a thing. These images will be with us forever. So grateful for these wonderful memories that we will put on the walls of our homes. You are so good at what you do! Thank you for sharing your talent with us. We are excited for you to capture whatever the next chapter in our lives brings! Thank you to the moon!" - Stacie R.

"Kara was such a joy to have as our photographer! We had recent family photos and she was so easy to connect with and our kids loved her. She had a bunch of fun games for the kids to play during the shoot that got them smiling and laughing, and she even had a fun game for my husband and I to play that got us laughing too! She is kind, courteous, and so very talented. We are more than pleased with how our photos turned out. We would recommend Kara's photography to anyone!- Juli T.
