Hi!  I'm Karen. {Yes, that's me above!} I'm excited to meet you!
 

ABOUT ME:  I'm a Christian, wife, mother of four, photographer and educator.  My life can be hectic, and I feel like photography has preserved the parts of it that I never want to forget.  I understand how busy life can be, and I will document the best part of it for you in a beautiful, timeless way.

WHY I LOVE FAMILY SESSIONS: They let us set aside time to bond with your child, to make them smile and giggle, to remind you of why you're here. Many of us spend our days in fast forward, thinking about what's next.  During your session, you'll be connecting, playing, and I'll be there to capture it all.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
 

PRE-CONSULTATION: Before I photograph you, I want to get to know you.  I'll ask questions about you and your children, what you do for fun, if you're more about handshakes or hugs.  I'll inquire about your wants and wishes to make sure we're a good fit for each other.  We'll also schedule your make up appointment, decide how you'll wear your hair, and plan your wardrobe.  I suggest neutral-coloured clothing, and have a full studio wardrobe you may borrow from.  If you choose to wear/purchase your own, focus on neutral tones with different textures.  Avoid logos, prints, or anything else that would be distracting.  Here's an example of a wonderful neutral colour scheme.

SESSION: The field I love to use most, throughout the seasons, is located just minutes from the studio.  Beginning one hour before sunset, these sessions provide golden light and a serene environment so you can focus on connecting with each other and having a lovely time together.  The sun sets just behind the trees in the distance, making it the perfect canvas for your family portraits. You'll have access to our make up services, the studio wardrobe, and personalized styling to help you look and feel great the day of your session.

ORDERING: After your portrait session, I'll take a week to edit and print your proof set {featured below}.  I'll have this ready, along with your digital image files, when you come in for your ordering appointment.  I'll walk you through the products and help you choose the collection that best suits your needs.  Each collection contains one proof set and digital image files in a beautiful wooden box as well as two archival matted art prints.
