The experience

What is a session like with Kara?


1. simple & customized planning

First we'll chat on the phone all about what the experience with us is like. We'll chat about your family and your expectations for your session as well as the art you'd like us to create for you. Next, we'll pick a date, time and location and book your session! I always encourage you to come into the studio to do a consultation. This will allow me to show you our custom products, slideshows of our images, discuss your needs and how we can exceed your expectations.



2. Your Photo Experience

On the day of the session, we will spend a little time getting to know each other and getting children comfortable with me and my camera. Then we'll play, cuddle and I'll take tons of fun memorable photos based on what we discussed during your consultation.



3. Easy Art Ordering

In the week or two following your session, we'll edit your photos and then contact you to schedule your ordering and design consultation. Then comes the fun part! You'll get to see a slideshow of your photos and then we'll dive in to your photos for the first time and I'll show you some beautiful, customizable options for displaying them in your home, based on your space and style.



4. your Art

This is the best part - giving you your beautiful custom art! Instead of having photos sit on your computer for years, you can have artwork that will make you smile every day and remember this time in life!


The options are endless for how to enjoy these great memories for a lifetime!

"We've done a newborn session, tippy toes sessions, and mini sessions - we've loved them all. She is fantastic at making the session fun and relaxing. Kara captures beautifully posed photos, but I love that she also captures those sweet moments in between where our personalities really come out. I ALWAYS love the results!"

"Kara recently did family photos with me and my boys. It was a great experience! I appreciated that she spoke to me ahead of time to learn more about my family and what I wanted to capture. During our session, she was easy to work with and my boys had an awesome time. Kara communicated frequently, confirming my session and providing updates on my gallery. And the photos are beautiful! I will definitely book our next family photos with her 😊"

"We’ve had wonderful experiences with Kara! She makes my kids laugh and we all genuinely enjoy her company! The sessions are the perfect combination of lifestyle and posed. I love knowing that if I book our family pictures with Kara we will definitely get some amazing family photos to cherish forever!"
