I saw the wonderful family pictures that Karen took for a friend. When we met, she quickly put us at ease and showed us a portfolio of work that really did a great job of capturing people in a more natural, relaxed setting.
We wanted to have our pictures taken at the beach, which I knew posed some additional challenges. Karen did a great job at keeping everyone relaxed, so it didn't feel like a chore. She also had great ideas about how to mix some staged compositions with more relaxed and natural candid photos, which turned out to be some of my favorite.
Karen is a very warm and friendly person who is easy to work with. She was great at getting our teenage boy to relax and have fun throughout the process. The photos she captured were beautiful and really captured the personalities of our family. The finished photos and book she put together for us were outstanding. It was so difficult to choose between so many great pictures. I would highly recommend Karen to my friends because we really treasure the work she did for us.
