Thanks for dropping by! I know you have a million things on your plate. And it is probably either your lunch break or it's midnight. I've been there, believe me... So let's keep things brief and fun!


I'm Kara! Dog mom, photographer, animal rescuer, owner of this business, wife, & lover of all things sweet. You’ll recognize me when we meet because even though I promise I’m
wearing clean clothes – there’s going to be dog hair on them.

I have been doing this since 2009 and loved every minute of it. Whether I am taking family portraits or family pawtraits; all clients leave an imprint on my soul.

If you :

- Have been known to cancel date nights when your dogs needs you to stay home and snuggle

- Have canceled a vacation; or not gone on vacation because your pets wouldn't like it.
-Filter Airbnb for pet friendly listings before even considering a place

- Have selected a new home based on if it will work for you animals
- Consider the color of your dog’s fur before deciding on a new couch color

- You cry often thinking about how every year is 7 years in your dog's life

Our family pawtraits is designed for you. And we will be best friends.

Your kids and furbabies are only in your home for a short period of time. Freezing time for you is an honor I do not hold lightly.

Kara Powell, owner of Kara Powell Photography

Kara's Infertility story

Every little girl's dream is to get married and have kids. They never think that they will have trouble conceiving.


My husband and I did for six years.


Every couples journey through infertility is different. Ours started in 2004, so it was a long time ago. We went through IUIs and IVFs. Lots of doctors appointments, $$, shots, tears and sleepless nights. Our first round of IVF we transferred three embryos. None of them took and we were devastated. Our doctor suggested that we try one more time, which we did. We transferred two embryos in 2008 and on Mother's Day 2008 we found out that we were expecting. Only one of these embryos took, but that was fine by us! Caden was born in January 2009, and he was perfect.


We tried one more time in 2014, but our Doctor said there was no

way it would work again. So we will be a family of three!


These many years of trying to build a family have lead me to be an advocate for the infertility community in many ways. I have written two books, worked with RESOLVE's Walk of Hope (National Infertility Association) for eight years and have raised funds several times at infertility events.


Currently a large portion of my clients come to me because they connect with my story or have met me through my work with RESOLVE. I treat all of my families like my own, because I know how precious each and every life is. Whether they are babies that are here or babies you want desperately.
