I'm Kara, the one behind the camera. Thanks for dropping by! And welcome!


Want to know a few tid-bits about me? Well, let's see. I'm a horned frog. I LOVE yoga pants and super fancy ball gowns, go figure! I adore al fresco dining, Gigi's cupcakes (even though they aren't in the Woodlands anymore) and traveling to new places. I have two education degrees and some say I'm the most patient person they have ever met. My all time favorites? My boys! Including my dog and new Covid kitty. I love them more than anything.


I have earned the nickname the Baby Whisperer by doing twelve years of newborn sessions. I love to shop at fellow small businesses. #shoplocal! And I am a fierce advocate for the infertility community. You can read about my family's journey below.

I'm Jenna. Welcome and thanks for visiting!


You may not see me often but I am behind the scenes editing and making sure things look their best. I have a BFA in visual communications and I am obsessed with fonts. I also happen to love yoga pants and ball gowns... There's a reason why Kara and I get along so well!


Some of my favorite things are my dog and travel. Bonus points if I can enjoy both of those things at the same time! Fun fact about me: I grew up in Bangkok, Thailand. That's where my love of travel and photography began!

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.
