Hello, I'm karina.
Wife. Photographer. Dog-mom. Yogi. Crime Junkie. And above all, mama to the two most amazing, spirited kiddos in the world (and I'm sure, like every mom, you feel the same way about yours). I'm actively soaking up what's left of the "baby" in both of them (because babies, truly, don't keep).
Whether you're like me and schedule family photos every other year, or you diligently organize them every Spring & Fall, I know how special-yet-stressful it is to have them-- so I'll provide a seamless experience from booking to delivery, so you have nothing to sweat.
behind the lens.
I feel that when you genuinely love what you do, you work harder at it and end up with amazing results. I truly & whole-heartedly LOVE taking pictures. And I love working with newborns—their sweet, fresh smell; their precious, tiny noises—and I’ve dedicated my career to learning the art of newborn photography.
I’ve been trained in posing & safety by one of the world’s best newborn photographers, Ana Brandt; and I’ve built my collection of props and fabrics from industry leaders who specialize in creating products just for your tiny human—from newborn-specific posing equipment, to bowls that are crafted in a size that perfectly fits a newborn baby, and blankets & wraps that are gentle on baby’s skin. So while your new-mom mind might constantly be racing about all the baby concerns, your photography experience shouldn’t be one of them, so know that you’re in good hands because I truly care about the safety and well-being of your baby and your family.
As a mom, I understand wanting to freeze moments in time to remember my babies, just as they are, forever.
As a photographer, i understand the value of capturing those moments and memories for you—after all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
As a “mom-tographer” I’m committed to bringing those moments out in your photo session, and giving you those memories to keep forever, as physical tokens from our time together—breathtaking heirloom products that are guaranteed to last for generations, because of their amazing quality, and because they are worthy—YOUR memories are WORTHY—of being passed down for years to come.
Baby's sitting up? Baby's turning one (already?! how did this happen?!) I love commemorating these milestones with a session!

You absolutely cannot go wrong with choosing Karina!
Her passion for photography really shows through her gentle touch with newborns. The way she was able to capture my family’s raw moments and bring them to such a beautiful light is something I will forever cherish.
