PHILOSOPHY
 
 
 
 
Come closer . . . I want to tell you a story.
 
 

I aim to create original art that immediately evokes the same joy and adoration upon the first viewing as many years from now.  I capture your child honestly and sensitively, with just the slightest bit of magic and imagination.

I specialize in working with children 18 months - 9 years, though I welcome high school seniors, models, families, and furry friends.  My work is a blend of studio and environmental, color and black & white, candid and formal.


I hand edit each and every selected portrait  --  never abdicating this critical step  --  providing full artistry and customization for every frinished piece.  I'll bring your images to life wih my distinct, timeless style, through pristine custom-framed canvas and print, premium tabletop albums and box sets, and gift presentations.

Because each client comes to me with unique desires and needs, I offer all product and services à la carte to allow the most flexibility in your experience and finished design.

The first step to working together is an in-person (or virtual) conversation
and a custom quote.   Be in touch so we can learn more about one other.

 
 
 
 
 
 
WALL PORTRAITS & TABLETOP
 
 
 
 
 
 
It is my hope that you will celebrate your family with a collection that includes a wall portrait for everyday enjoyment as well as a tabletop archive collection such as an album or box set. 

I've worked over many years to curate the the most high-quality, bespoke portrait products that are sure to thrill and delight for years to come.

All finished presentation pieces include a lifetime quality guarantee.
All custom-framed canvases and prints offer optional [local] in-home installation.

All purchased wall portraits include
printable digital archive files and social media files.

"We had heard how beautiful Karen's work was and how fun she was to work with.   We loved the portraits so much from tha session that we worked with her again not long after to photograph our whole family. The session was fun, stress-free, and Karen captured our family beautifully.   My husband was skeptical that she could create a beautiful portrait with everyone, including the dogs.  She succeeded and then some.   The documentary lifestyle album is a keepsake and I smile every time we look at the canvas on the wall.   We will definitely work with Karen again."

PORTRAIT SITTING

Studio & environmental portrait sittings take place at my South Lyon, MI home studio and surrounding stunning natural preserve grounds (don't be surprised to glance out the window to see ducks, herons, and beavers frolicking in the pond).  Travel sittings are available.

Sittings include an in-person pre-shoot discovery meeting, my time and talent before, during, and after the shoot, a post-shoot in-person design consultation, and post-editing and production of finished pieces.  I will present you with approximately 25-40 images for selection and design.

Because every client presents unique needs and preferences, I do not offer "collections" or "packages" but rather, all services and products are à la carte.
