You want to document your precious little one in photographs.
But life is chaotic. It can get stressful. Sometimes even overwhelming. You should be able to enjoy this life you chose.
A photograph reminds you. It reminds you to pause. Reminds you of what matters. Reminds you to breathe. Reminds you to enjoy.
Because this moment, right here, right now. This is meaningful to you. Sure, it's chaotic. But that's ok because there's beauty in your chaos.
I'm Karen Byker, a professional photographer since 2005. Allow me to take the reins and capture stunning images of your little one.
"Karen was so welcoming and her studio was absolutely beautiful. I love how personal she is and how casual her photography style is. She captured us in the moment as a new little family and we have keepsakes of this special time to cherish always." -Amanda Moore
RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
“We loved our experience with Karen. She made us feel welcome and ready to enjoy the (naturally awkward) process of having our photos taken. Karen goes above and beyond to make her clients comfortable and relaxed and even paused the photo shoot to allow me to nurse my fussy 6 month old. :)” - Laura Gillis
“Karen was phenomenal. She brought out the best of me and my family. Her sway with my newborn was even more touching. When we went back for the review, it was an even better experience. She is professional, detailed and literally the best at what she does. You won’t regret using her service.” - Archie Eastwood-Anaba
“We just did our second photo session with Karen. She is so lovely, enthusiastic, and has a wonderful presence during the shoot. My husband and I both hate having our photos taken, but she made the experience relaxing and enjoyable. It felt very natural, and her studio is so inviting! We also have a very energetic 7 month old who is crawling all over and trying to walk. Just like in the newborn shoot where she was able to calm and comfort our son (and get so many great shots!) she engaged our little guy so well that he was giggling and laughing with her for most of the session!“ - Leslie Witton
“There are no words to describe our experiences with Karen! Not only are her photos beautiful, she has authentic ways of capturing REAL moments within your family.

Thank-you Karen for capturing such beautiful memories that my family with hold dear for eternity!” -Cassandra Candeloro

“My husband and I were so thrilled by our recent experience with Karen. She was incredible with our four and a half month old son and was able to really capture his personality! We literally ended up with a hundred photos that are each striking and together make up a wonderful collection to remember this time with our first child.” -Caitlin Lutley
“We recently had a wonderful experience getting photos taking with Karen! From start to finish she made sure that everything was prepared and organized. As tricky as it can be getting pictures of small children, Karen was amazing at coming up with activities for our girls. She kept things moving and was so warm and welcoming! Her home studio is gorgeous. We are so excited to see the photos!!” -Kristen Hogg
"The experience was wonderful from the first contact to the completed gallery. Karen took the time to ensure that my son was comfortable, and her warmth showed in the photographs.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Karen from start to finish. She took care of every detail so all I had to do was show up. Karen was very sweet and gave us a warm welcome.

"We enjoyed every aspect of our photo shoot with Karen. Her care and attention to detail was evident each step of the way: from our first meeting to the day of our photo shoot.

Thanks, so much Karen! We had so much fun!" - Rachel Symons
