HEY, I'M Kara!
The most common mistakes I see most creative professionals making is not doing enough of the right things. Or working on the wrong parts in your business. Getting caught up in negative feelings, and the fear of being seen. Of failing. I know this because I've been there. My goal is to accompany artists, professionals, and creators and revel in their universe. I simplify their purpose and give clarity to their visual identity and brand. This process makes me very thoughtful about the story we're telling and the result is more purposeful images for the brand I’m working with.
As a photographer and producer, I don’t get hired because I get lucky and just make pretty pictures, I’m hired because I make creative decisions that match a collection of products to the intended customer, by telling a clear story.
As far as luck goes, I’m lucky to do something I love for a living.
Frequently Asked Questions
How did you fall in love with Photography and Brand Identity?
I picked up my first camera when I was working for a local boutique, and taking the images we used in the facebook pages and websites we ran. I would take the cutest clothing and any available girl from behind the cash wrap counter and wander around town photographing the clothing. I couldn't believe it was "work". Mixing in motherhood and starting a business of my own solidified my love of photography and the desire to document and tell a story of people making and selling things.
Who do you enjoy photographing?
I love learning the stories of why people make things. Fashion, ceramics, home textiles, baby items, paper, cars, everything. If you make something, I want to photograph it. And I want to photograph you making/painting/designing and typing on your computer about it.
Do you travel?
Yes! I love to travel for commercial work, the right location is super important for a brand campaign. I am also a Creative Director + Producer and can help bring your vision to life.
What is your pricing?
This question is super important, and different for every project. I offer an all inclusive brand imaging service priced by day rate or by project: this could include seasonal editorial campaign conception, marketing conception, lifestyle imagery, stock product photography, and even personal branding or whole team headshots.
