MEET KARA

I am a  photographer based out of Richmond, Virginia specializing in family and motherhood portraits.  I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. Always having a passion for people and portraits, I found my calling as an artist while on my own journey to motherhood. It brings me great joy to document once-in-a-lifetime moments while connecting with other mothers and telling their story.

My husband, Steven, and I welcomed our beautiful daughter, Cora Jane, into the world in early 2018. Our road to becoming parents was three years in the making and it was filled with uncertainty, but joy comes in the morning. The Lord was faithful! Through our losses and our waiting, patience became an art form. As a new mother, I have an intimate understanding of the fleeting beauty of each season throughout motherhood.

I've been told that I am a 'people person' and I have to say I agree with that! I've never met a stranger. My portrait sessions are tailored to you and your families needs. You can expect a laid back and friendly atmosphere. Typically working from your home, or another location of your choice, my approach is best described as lifestyle. I love capturing the moments in between the posed shots -  the real moments that are just for you and your family. If you have specific questions or ideas regarding your session, please don't hesitate to reach out!

Additionally, I have the privilege and great joy of working with an extremely talented woman in the photography world. Nikki Santerre is an award-winning wedding and motherhood photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. She is not only an invaluable mentor, but a dear friend.

A few of my favorite things:  

I am a self-proclaimed Disney aficionado. My family loves all things Disney and when given the choice, we would rather "hit the parks" than the beach. When I have down time I like to relax with a good Netflix binge and some knitting!
