You want to document your maternity journey 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 beautifully photograph you in this wonderful stage of life.
"Not only are Karen's photos beautiful but she makes the experience feel easy, relaxed and special from start to finish. We absolutely loved every aspect of our sessions with Karen and the memories we made during the sessions and the final images will be cherished forever." - Allison Caporicci
RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
“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
“Karen is delightful to work with! I had a maternity session with Karen at her beautiful studio and she made sure both my husband and I felt at ease. She is a gracious and funny person who captures real moments and makes you feel comfortable and natural. I would absolutely recommend anyone who wants beautiful photos to hire Karen. We will be working with Karen again for our newborn session and a family session, both of which I am so looking forward to!! ” - Maria Romanell
“Karen has photographed my family 5 times in the last 5 1/2 years. Since our very first experience with her, Karen has been warm and kind to all of us in a way that allows us to feel and then look comfortable and natural in our photographs. She captures the true essence of our family, and especially my children, in each session, and we are always stunned with the beautiful images that we are presented with. We will return to her for our next family photos and will look forward to it, just as always.” - Jessica Mottola

“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
"We had a great family session with Karen— she pays attention to details and walks you through ever step of the process. We enjoyed just playing with our kiddos at the beach and got some really sweet photos in the meantime!" - Jamie Hamilton
“What began in my head as an event in my calendar that I simply had to 'attend to', soon became cherished family time at the beach; all thanks to Karen. This photographer is unlike any other with whom I've ever had the pleasure of working. Packed along side her camera is her grace, energy and spirit; all of which she used to capture our quirky family perfectly…” - Jeannine VanderBeek
"We were first introduced to Karen and Reflections Of Life Photography in 2010 when we had our first child. We had no idea what to expect, but leading up to the session Karen made sure we were fully prepared and had a good idea of what would be happening during our session. We truly admired her patience and gentleness with our baby and felt very welcomed… “ - Alicia Braun
“Karen has a wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable and relaxed while having your photos taken. She is really good with kids of all ages. You can just enjoy your time as a family, and she captures all the moments. I am so grateful for the beautiful photos she took of us and ‘freezing a moment in time’ of my children who seem to be growing up far faster than I’d like. She always captures them in and their true personality. Amazing service. Would absolutely highly recommend.” - Tracy Raab
