"Karen is an amazing photographer and I am so thankful that I chose her to capture not only our newborn but our entire family. She had no hesitations when it came to working with my family which includes a 4, 3 and 2 year old as well as our newborn. The expressions and moments she was able to capture are priceless and I am so in love with the outcome. She has a very natural approach to photography. She is also extremely professional and pays attention to every detail. I would highly recommend Reflections of Life Photography to anyone looking for an incredible photographer."

"Karen truly is the baby whisperer! Our session went by without a snag because she had wonderful calming methods for my son so we could get the best shots. I am beyond pleased with the finished product! When I came back to view her work the following week after our session, she had a beautiful slide show set up with music that brought me to tears. She is prompt with her emails, amazing at what she does, and very accommodating before during and after the shoot. I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture this special moment in you and your newborn's life. Thanks again Karen!"

"Working with Karen is a true pleasure. She is professional, knowledgeable and has an amazing ability to put you at ease. From the very beginning, Karen answered all our questions patiently and explained the process clearly. Once we arrived at her studio (which, by the way, is AMAZING!), immediately she and her team put us at ease, so our photos turned out so natural. She creates true works of art that your family will treasure forever! We loved our experience with Karen so much that we've already booked our next session! Thank you Karen and we look forward to seeing you soon!"

"The minute you walk in from the busy street and into the studio you enter into a peaceful, calm environment. Right away Karen made me feel welcomed and relaxed. She handled my daughter very gently and confidently. She took her time to make sure my daughter was calm and relaxed before the camera was even taken out. This was my first experience with newborn photography and the environment Karen has created is as beautiful as the photos she captures!"
- Jessica Rameder
"Karen did an amazing job with our images. We decided to do a photo session to show how much my son had grown in a year, as Karen was his first photographer when he was first born. When we arrived my son didn't want to get photographed by himself right away, so we quickly moved to doing family pictures while he was comfortable. Later moving back to solo photographs once he became comfortable with his surroundings. She really takes her time with everyone to get the best image possible of everyone. You can really feel the love through the images."
- Kimberley Young
"Karen has done an amazing job capturing our family as we are-we love how there are no artificial poses, just candid moments of our connections to one another. We have trusted Karen with newborn and one year photography collections of our children and family, as well as a recent maternity session. We are in love with every picture she has taken for us. We look forward to our upcoming newborn session with Karen-we know that we are going to cherish these pictures forever, like we do the others she has taken for us."
- Marianne Dumont
"My family did an outdoor, fall photo session with Karen at Reflections of Life Photography recently. Her kind, playful disposition made us all feel comfortable from start to finish. She had our boys playing, laughing and being themselves. We are amazed by Karen's talent to capture the "real" smiles and emotions of our little family. We are, and forever will be grateful for this experience and our gorgeous images that we will cherish forever! <3"
- Christine Edwards
"Karen is a wonderful photographer. She brings out the very best in my children. She can elicit smiles and personality from the most serious of children. She prepares her clients well ahead of time with a thorough email before your session. You know exactly what you need to know and how to make your session the best it can be. Her studio is clean, warm, inviting and professional. She is professional in her work and yet her warm personality shines through. You can see clearly that she loves what she does. Highly recommend her."
- Angela Kingma
"We had a family session this past week with Karen and we're always very impressed with her joy and excitement for capturing the moments and expressions that make our family unique. She was so helpful with directing us in wardrobe choice and locations. Karen has a wonderful way of making her clients feel cherished - she has been a part of our memory making for over 10 years, from newborns to kids to family and beyond. Thank you Karen!!"
- Jody Godwaldt
"We love, love, love our photos, you capture us! Even down to the one where our oldest has got his face in his dad's side in one of our family shots, that's him exactly! You captured all the quirky little things about our boys that we love and have captured this moment in time that we can go back and look at for years! Thank you so much Karen!"
- Stacy Heidman
"Santino is now 10 weeks old and has grown out of the newborn phase. He has changed so much and looking back at his newborn photos allows me to cherish that short period of time when he was so new. It's been a whirlwind, and to reflect on that time is something I am forever grateful for as you captured those memories perfectly for our family. I really enjoyed us just being a family of 4, photographed together, and our son Giovanni just loving every moment of it. These stories will be amazing to share with Santino one day!"
- Elizabeth Cicchino

"Our time with Karen was so relaxing. Honestly I usually am so stressed at photo sessions. By the time we get the kids ready, we're not really doing much more that fake smiling our way through it. But we actually had fun with Karen! She has a way of getting you to forget about the camera and just laugh together. She's brilliant!"
- Joyce & Titus Villanueva

Love that she helps us to get in the moment by asking us to talk to each other and remember things or joke around to capture the moment."
- Claudia & Mark Van Wely
"Karen handled my newborn son with care through the whole session. If he was starting to get fussy she was easily able to calm him either through singing or humming softly to him or rocking him around the room. She really takes her time to get the perfect picture."
- Kimberley Young
"In my experience with Karen at Reflections of Life, her work is breathtaking. Both of my sons were captured in a way that highlights their individualism.
