My biggest fear before hiring Karen for my birth was that it would be impossible to catch such a tender, raw, and intense moment in a beautiful way. I mean, it’s no small thing to have a baby.... It’s the hardest work, but the most beautiful work, and I think it would be difficult for anyone to capture those tender moments. But- not Karen.... She surpassed everything I had hoped for and imagined. My birth pictures are amazing, and my only wish is that she had attended all of my other births.... She knows her stuff. You can tell her your vision, and it will come back a million times better than you imagined.
If what you want is someone to document the love and light of your daily life, Karen is THE ONE for that.... She entered the chaos of my home on a normal day and was able to see what was beautiful about that, and then she took pictures of that beauty. And now we have it forever to look at. Hers is the kind of photography service that's a real service.
"I cannot begin to explain how in love I am with Isaac's birth photos. They are so incredibly beautiful and are exactly what I pictured when I decided I wanted birth photos.... Your presence in the room was so calming and fun. It was such a pleasure to have you experience it all with us. I felt totally comfortable with you there. Thank you for being willing to share our special day with us."
Karen took the most beautiful photos of our newborn when he was just 10 days old. She was a true professional and it was so nice to have her come to our home with a new little one. Even my husband enjoyed the shoot and he usually drags his feet when it comes time for family photos. I have referred Karen to friends and they have commented that she is professional and to the point. She can capture a great family photo in a pretty short time, which is very valuable when you have little ones with short attention spans.
I recently had a baby girl and Karen took our birth story pictures and followed up with a lifestyle newborn session in our home 2 weeks later. We couldn't be more pleased with the pictures she took! They beautifully capture our family (even a busy 3yo), tell a story that we want remembered, and have beautiful composition and depth. Karen was a joy to work with, she made us feel very comfortable. I highly recommend her! In fact we are in the process of booking extended family portraits with her now!
"Karen: Everything about you, everything you do, right down to the smallest detail is absolutely top rate! I couldn't be more impressed!"
