Meet Karen

"Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life"

I LOVE photographing people! I love watching a client go from feeling a little awkward and self-conscious to laughing and having fun and feeling confident. I love snapping the shutter at just the right moment and knowing I have captured their true personality. I love finding unique angles and settings and poses that produce one of a kind images. I love seeing my client’s eyes light up when they see their final pictures because they have never seen themselves that way before. My job is just plain fun!

From an early age I knew I wanted to work as an artist. There is something inside me that delights in being creative. I went to Miami University on a full art scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I worked for several years in graphic design as well as painting large murals, but my passion was finally discovered when I picked up a camera and experienced the magic of documenting people. You know you have found your calling when you look forward to every aspect of your job. I thoroughly enjoy meeting with my clients during their consultation and getting to know their personality and interests. The photoshoot itself is always a joy because I get to use my creativity to create amazing images. Editing and curating the final portraits is exciting because I transform a photograph into artwork, and of course, presenting my clients with their final products is fantastic because I know they will treasure their photographs for generations. It has been a joy mastering my craft. Did I mention I love my job?

When I decided to start my own business I knew I wanted my photography studio to be different. My goal is not just to make “pretty pictures”, it is to truly capture the personality of each client. I have committed to making each client a priority by overwhelming them with customer service. My clients receive exceptional images and the highest quality products. In addition, by the end of our time together, I hope they feel like they have a new friend. Most of my clients have hired me over and over again. I couldn't ask for a better compliment!

On a personal note, I have been married to my stud of a husband for 26 years and we have 3 amazing kids. We live on a beautiful 60 acre property in the country with ponds and woods and fields. My farm is a gorgeous setting for photoshoots, but I am happy to travel wherever you like.

I can’t wait to meet you and photograph your family. I have a feeling we are going to have fun!
