Love stories and family memories from start to finish
breathtaking • moments • captured
No matter what season of life you are in right now, every stage of life deserves to be captured by something other than a cell phone. When you step in front of my camera, you end up seeing a bright side of you or your family that you may not have been aware of. I promise you won't regret hiring a professional photographer. I focus on documenting your every day moments all the way to your bigger milestones and deliver forever heirlooms that will be passed down from generation to generation. So whether you are snuggling a precious newborn or celebrating grandkids and 50+ happy years of marriage, let's preserve those memories!
To begin your experience in front of my camera, fill out my contact form so I can get in touch with you. Once I receive that, I will go over the details with you and confirm you on my schedule.
If you have never had professional photos taken, no worries! I will help guide you through everything from booking your session to wardrobe recommendations and even photo selections afterwards of what to print and gift to family and friends.
1. Say Hello
Many of my clients tell me they have no idea what to wear or how to compliment each other in photos. I offer personalized recommendations for your outfits of choice. So feel free to send me photos of clothing options. A general rule of thumb is to enjoy playing with patterns but keep it simple and only have one or two patterns. Bright complimentary colors tend to work nice in outdoor settings and light and soft colors look best on a beach or a light background setting. Most importantly, make sure you are comfortable in what you have on, because if you aren't, you will not like yourself in the photos later.
Yay! It's your session day and all the details have been taken care of at this point. Now you get to relax, enjoy and smile for my camera. Most people do not know what to do when taking pictures and that is ok! I will guide you on poses and help you look your best. However, I also like to capture some more candid moments full of life and energy, so make sure you are always ready to have fun no matter what!

The excitement I have in sharing your photos with you is just as exciting as you are to see them! You can expect to see your images uploaded to an online gallery within 2-4 weeks of your session.
I take utmost care when editing your images and I make sure to deliver pristine quality that I want you to fall in love the moment you see each one. All my images are fully edited and ready for printing. We will work together to get the images you want whether that is digital files, prints, canvas art or photo albums.

My family portrait sessions are always fun and focused on capturing your whole family and even each person individually. I love getting to know new families and learning about life stories from kids. Kids really do say the darndest things.
Maternity and Newborn
Children and Seniors
I believe children are a gift from God and each one is make so unique that no two are the same. I strive to capture each one that shows off who they really are. My children sessions can be anything from a one year old smash cake session all the way up to high school seniors.
My Maternity sessions are captured in a posed style. I suggest soft colors or dramatic slim dresses that really show off your beautiful baby belly. I will guide you in poses and let your beauty shine. My Newborn sessions are taken in lifestyle. I come to you and photograph you and your baby and family in your element. These sessions usually take 2+hours. I will capture some with pose and some with what life is really like with a baby.
You were such an amazing photographer and overall person to have present on our big day. I can't tell you how appreciative Corey and I were to have you there and to keep us organized and sane. Again, I just can't thank you enough and I have many people getting married soon so I will be sure to pass your name along.

"Karla did a spectacular job photographing my daughter's special day! From the hair and make-up all the way through the exit shots. She was extremely organized, knew who was to be in the specials shots and was completely flexible when we came up with ideas of our own. During the ceremony and reception she worked seamlessly. I was never interrupted to pose for a specific shot. It was an amazing day and Karla made sure it was completely captured! By the way, this was a destination wedding for everyone and working with Karla long distance was always easy." - Celeste
“Karla and Travis were amazing! They are not only great photographers, but also great people and we really enjoyed hanging out with them during the wedding and reception. We will definitely be hiring them when we have kids to do a shoot for that. You will love them! - Greg
